Michelle & Chris were married at the Bethlehem Baptist Church in Tacoma.
Showing off the beautiful gown. =)
We had a blast working with Michelle & Chris, such personalities yet, so caring and loving.
Every time I saw their young flower girl, I kept thinking "pretty, pretty princess".

The reception was at the Varsity Grill with catering provided by The Vault.
Family and friends can view the wedding gallery here: Michelle & Chris. *** please get password from Chris or Michelle.

This was from an Operation: Love Reunited homecoming. I'm always grateful for the auto focus as it NEVER fails that I start crying myself. Family Affair Photography appreciates and thanks the men and women who serve our country and their families by offering FREE photo sessions: Pre-deployment, during deployment and/or Homecoming.

Last week we shared photos that involved dancing. I thought this week we could share some cake cutting/feeding photos.
Every couple has their own approach to this event. Sometimes it's neat, controlled and not a crumb is spilled. Other times it's wild, boisterous and occasionally it's not the bride and groom that end up wearing the cake! Stay tuned this week for some sweet delights.
Image of the Day: 'Bold Move'
A bold move on the brides part as the groom had yet to feed her!

As a photographer, I'm often asked if I provide a copyright release. My answer is "No, I provide a printing release". So, what is the difference and what does it mean to you, the customer?
A printing release gives you permission to reproduce the images for personal use. With our business (and I can only speak for ours) we provide an 'unlimited release' which means you can print and give away as many photos as you like to family and friends for as long as you desire. You cam also use the images on Facebook, MySpace, blogs, etc without seeking permission prior to use.
The one restriction placed on the DVD's is that the images can not be used for commercial gain. Meaning they can not be entered into a photography contest, sell the images to magazines, or sold as stock photos, etc.
This hasn't been a problem for our customers. What they want is the right to print and use their photographs for their personal use. What do we get from this? We get to keep the ability to use your photographs to advertise our business. We can use the images on our website, our blog, brochures, etc.
Think of an image like you would another form of art. like you think of a song. A radio station has the right to play the song but only the artist has the right to sell the song

Here she is wanting a close up! She was very inquisitive about the camera. =) Do we have a future model?
We once again enjoyed our time with Baby 'A' and look forward to seeing her again when she turns ONE! How did a year pass so quickly?
Family and friends can see the full gallery (which has photos from 3, 6 and now 9 months of age) here: Baby A
