julie & jason- puerto rico wedding

Just sent this one off to Julie and Jason. It’s 3:00am and I feel like we just completed a photo marathon. I am really wishing we could watch their slideshow with them for the first time, sipping coffee and giggling. But they are in Austin and we’re in Tacoma so that’s not going to happen. Sometimes I wish we had more interaction and follow up with clients after their wedding. I feel like we could learn a lot by watching their response to our images and hearing their immediate feedback. But in reality I would probably feel super awkward and would do some nervous annoying laugh the whole time. I guess it’s best if I just imagine their response when they see it. I am hoping Julie will look something like this.

in that book which is
my memory…
on the first page
that is the chapter when
i first met you
appear the words…
here begins a new life
-dante alighieri

i had this poem on the first post about kristin and jeff's wedding. and then for some reason i deleted it. not sure why. then today i was putting together their slideshow and went to itunes to hear one of the songs kristin had suggested for the show and was pleasantly surprised…. i knew the song and really liked it, i just didn't know the name of it. and as i listened to it again and again i realized that it was basically a modern day spin on the poem i had deleted. and so i thought that the poem and the song should have a post together. you can have a peek and a listen for yourself, over here on their slideshow.

*the song is "first day of my life" by bright eyes.

Steamboat Island – megan & jeff

megan and jeff were married at megan's parent's house in olympia, washington. they wed under a pair of big
leafy trees with the stunning puget sound as their backdrop. the
details were made by local artisans from the flowers,
jewelry and even the beer. some of our favorite images of the day
were shot with them cruising around the island in jeff's 67 chevelle, which he has had since he was
fifteen years old. megan's dad built a little row boat which they snuck out on after dinner, just as the sun was starting to fall. it was a
wondrous day and we felt very lucky to be there to witness it. megan and
jeff welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like old friends. they were incredibly sweet, kind, charming,
genuine and very fun. this day was only the start for these two. together they will have
countless more drives in the chevelle and many more quiet evenings
out on the bay.
