A Portrait of Love

                           Thornwood Castle wedding
This week I’ll be digging through some old blog entries for our ‘Image of the Day’ series.  The reason for doing this is because we just updated our computers (new) and have no photos on here yet!  I guess that means I’ll have to get the external hard drive out in the next few days.
Ernie and Joycelyn had a small ceremony at Thornwood Castle in 2007.

Julie, Steve and baby makes 3!

Tacoma Family Portrait Photographer
We originally met Julie and Steve in 2008 when they hired us to photograph their wedding at the Landmark Convention Center in Tacoma.  It was fun to catch up with them again and their new addition, a charming and beautiful daughter.

It was great to see Julie & Steve again and more importantly it was wonderful to see they are still very much in love and have started their own family.

The Dance

               Cedar_Springs_Port Orchard_Weddings_Family Affair Photography
Since a majority of our black and white photographs featured this week have been more of a portraiture style, I decided to make this last photo in the series a fun photojournalistic photo taken during the reception.  It's always a joy to watch and photograph the couples after a wedding, the weddings remind them of their own marriages and it shows when they get on the dance floor afterwards.
