Love at Last – Mike & Terrie

Early last year, our good friend, Mike, invited us out to dinner with he and his fiance, Terrie. It was a lovely evening at one of our favorite local restaurants. Over dinner, Mike and Terrie asked us to be their photographers for their wedding in April. Of course we said yes, not knowing that the world was on the edge of extinction.

Covid then hit and and everything on planet Earth was canceled. Well, almost everything. Love was not canceled, just delayed. Mike and Terrie’s wedding would have to wait. And so it did. Two more scheduled wedding dates came and went.

That was until last weekend, when the big day finally arrived and nothing was going to stop their wedding…this time. And so, nothing did.

This wonderful couple was married at the Pioneer Park Pavilion in downtown Puyallup, witnessed by their many friends and relatives. It was incredible for us to see how many people were able share in this special day.

A great big congratulations and best wishes for many happy years together go out to you, Mike and Terrie. And thank you for having us be your photographer and join in your special day.

Love and blessings to you both,

Chris and Lynette.

Missing you George

I’ve been spending a good portion of this week restoring my tools (fixing this blog and transferring photo’s to a new computer) and I have been running across a lot of pictures of my friend George.

George was another business owner that crossed our path many years ago in a networking group. He was a DJ by trade and great friend by nature. We ended up working a lot of weddings and other events with him over the following years. George even DJ’d at my 40th birthday-an 80’s music festival in my backyard with other friends and family .

Anyway, George unexpectedly passed away a few years back. I miss talking with him on the phone as we always did. We never did connect for that beer, but I know that he’s keeping the stool warm for me in heaven.

Rest in peace, George. We miss you.

Bri and Mike

Hi everyone, and welcome back to my blog. Today, I am blessed to post a gorgeous engagement shoot with an amazing couple. Mike used to work for us at McKenna Video Services, years ago when he was in high school. Mike was one of our video editors. Wow has time flown by! We were so excited when he reached out to us to take his engagement photos. Of course we accepted right away, and had the opportunity to meet Mike’s love, Bri. What a beauty! Mike, you did good!!:)

I met up with Mike and Bri at the Mayflower Dairy Barn in Frederickson. I love this location for all of it’s different backdrop options. We dodged a few raindrops early on, but ended up with a beautiful evening. Perfect overcast skies for that great skin tone that all photographers hope for.

Congratulations to you both, Bri and Mike. It is obvious how much you love each other. Both Chris and I want to wish you the most amazing life together. Always have fun!!

The Newlyweds – Whitney and Jeremy

I am so happy for my friend, Whitney and her new husband Jeremy! As a special treat, Whitney and Jeremy had me take some pre-wedding photos the day before they were married. It was wonderful to have the time to move at a slower pace than on a regular wedding day and really enjoy watching the love bubble up between these 2 people.

Congratulations to you both! I pray your marriage is blessed with a lifetime of joy.

Emily and Joey-The Williams Wedding

It’s summer, and that means wedding season! What a magical time; beautiful brides and handsome grooms are joining together in this most extraordinary commitment. I love it!

This past weekend, Chris and I were blessed to share this extraordinary moment with Joey and Emily. What an amazing couple! You will see from their photos how much love emanates from their eyes. It was a sight to behold; a love story shared with family and friends in the intimate setting of Joey’s home. There were moments of joy and laughter, and tears of emotion flowed throughout the crowd. Splendid!

Congratulations Emily and Joey! You both deserve the world, and I think that’s exactly what you will bring to each other.

Thank you so much for asking us to be a part of your most precious day.

Congratulations Gigi and Jerry!

Hello everyone. Let’s all give our heartfelt congratulations to our friends Jerry and Gigi Church!

Chris and I have known Jerry for well over 15 years. In fact, Jerry and Chris went to school together at Decatur HS. Small world, isn’t it? We had the delight to finally meet the girl who swept Jerry off of his feet. We love Gigi! What an amazing and beautiful woman with a love for “her man” (as she lovingly refers to Jerry), that cannot be matched.

Jerry and Gigi were married at St Luke’s Lutheran Church in Federal Way 2 weeks ago, and spent their honeymoon having a blast at Disney World.

Thank you both for allowing us to be a part of your marriage and to help you celebrate this joyous event. It was a beautiful ceremony for a beautiful couple. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness to you guys!

Blessings~

Congratulations to Tyler and Breanne!

What an incredible weekend! Amidst the blowing wind and driving rain, God opened up a brief respite. Wow! One of our best weddings yet! Last Saturday was a glorious display of love and commitment for our couple. Breanne and Tyler, as you will see, are one of the most beautiful couples we have ever seen. They showed love and affection to each other through their wedding day, with no anxiety or irritation to be seen. These two love birds are a perfect couple. We had a great time with them and their entire family! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Selland. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your most special day. It was an honor and a privilege. Blessings to you:)

Jill and Brenden – A Wedding

Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone! Hope you are all home safe and sound on this Friday night.

Chris and I had the great pleasure of shooting a wedding last weekend. Jillian and Brenden were married in Steilacoom, WA in front of the beautiful Puget Sound on an old time bandstand with their family and friends all watching with joy in their eyes.

Jill tried very hard to stay out of sight of her soon to be husband, and was successful!! Woohoo!! This was not an easy task. Brenden’s first look at Jill was as she was being escorted by her father down the grassy isle. His smile was golden. She was breathtaking. It was a great event, one we will not soon forget.

I hope you enjoy some of the photo selections I chose for their blog. Congratulations, you guys! I hope Chicago treats you well:)

Molly’s Bridal Shower

It was a gorgeous day for a tea party.

This past Saturday, my soon to be daughter-in-law, Molly, attended her bridal shower on Lake Samish in Bellingham, WA. Given to her by her besties, Kelsey and McKena, it was a gala event. Beautiful job, ladies!!

There was a spread of scented sweet peas to decorate the lovely tea cup laden table, chocolate covered strawberries, the best cucumber sandwiches I have ever had, a wonderful broccoli salad, lemon bars, champagne, and of course, tea.

Molly was lavished with beautiful and thoughtful gifts. We played fun bridal shower games (with prizes of course). We enjoyed the sun and each others company.

Congratulations, Molly! I can’t wait to see you married to my son!:) He is a lucky man.

Here are a few photos from this grand gathering. Enjoy

Jillian and Brenden

Merry Christmas to you all! What a wonderful and joyous time to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Recently, I had the privilege of photographing Jillian and Brenden. These two will be getting married this upcoming summer and have asked Chris and myself to be their photographers. We are honored! And can hardly wait for August to get here:)

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. We took advantage of one of the few dry (but cold) December days. There are a few pics with an extra little cutie (my favs).  Enjoy:)
