Aerie Ballroom ~ Brittney & Josef’s wedding photographs

We didn’t get to meet Brittney or Josef prior to their wedding at the Aerie Ballroom in Centralia as both have been living in a state that has ‘real’ summers, AKA Arizona.   I believe the love and friendship of family and friends kept them warm with our cooler climate – or so I like to think anyway.

Josef & Brittney didn’t want to see each other before their wedding ceremony.  A few informal group shots were taken in their separate areas of the ballroom or for Brittney in the dressing room.

I always love this moment right before the dad walks his ‘little princess’ who has grown before his eyes into this beautiful young woman on her wedding day.

                               “Wait a second, you didn’t tell me people would be watching me!” 

This wasn’t what the flower girl signed up for after all.  You never know what the little ones will do but, you can always count on some memorable moment.  She did great the rest of the day.

            After the ceremony we walked to a nearby park for their portraits and a bit of fresh air.

Tacoma Engagement Portrait Session

Again, I feel as if I should apologize for the delay in posting photos from portrait sessions, weddings and events that we’ve photographed in the past month or two.   However, I rather make sure our customers are getting their photos than spending a lot of time with blogging.   Hang time my friends and customers, more photos will be coming!

We’ve actually photographed Jennifer & Brian’s country themed wedding on July 10th at Frontier Park/Lodge in Graham just outside of Puyallup.  A few of their wedding photos have been posted to our Facebook page.  Stay tuned for their wedding photos!

Point Defiance Engagement Portrait Session

Once again, I find myself behind in the blogging department of my business.  I guess if it came down to blogging or customer service, I’d rather my time be devoted to giving our customers the attention they deserve and let the blog slide from time to time. 
Last month we met with Christina & Cedric for their engagement/portrait session at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma.  We went to several parts of the park for their session and enjoyed watching them interact with each other as we took their photographs.  We are looking forward to their August wedding at The Mountaineer’s Club in Old Town Tacoma.

Here is a sneak peak of their engagement session ….

Family Portrait at Spanaway Park

Family Affair Photography

Not that long ago (June), on a misty morning we met with April’s family at Spanaway Park for some family portraits.  It had been awhile since Sonny and I had a portrait session at this particular park and now we are looking forward to the possibilities of doing some other sessions at this park.  It had many spots that were perfect for family, senior, engagement portraits and more!  You just can’t lose at this park.
