"The Photos Alone are Reason Enough to get Married!"
Hello there, thanks for visiting our blog! We are Heather Gilson and Jon Almeda of One Love Photo. Our mission is to create photographs at weddings that are as charming and unique as the day itself. We have been married for ten years and have been friends since high school. We imagine that each wedding we photograph is our own wedding. Giving each client all our love and shooting straight from our hearts. We both bring something different to the table, yet we share a similar aesthetic vision which gives our images a cohesive look.
Having shot over 260 weddings together as a team, we have established a refined "well oiled" approach to weddings. Our approach allows our couples to be relaxed, happy and perfectly present on their big day. We take joy in fusing our images together to craft stories with our cameras. We enjoy using a combination of cameras and techniques. In addition to using Canon digital gear, we often shoot with a Hasselblad medium format film camera and vintage 35mm lenses. Images shot with our film cameras and lenses have their own look and feel. Some produce beautiful flare, some are square, and some make things soft and dreamy.
Beyond photography we work in a variety of mediums ranging from pottery, painting and recycled mixed media pieces. When we aren't busy photographing weddings you'll find us working on our other artistic endeavors. Jon is a renowned miniature potter and the designer and creator of Mod Radio. I spend most my days painting early in the morning and working on photography late into the night.
We live in Tacoma with our giant tuxedo cat named Friend. We love the Pacific Northwest and enjoy having our family and friends close. It's hard to beat the PNW in the summer months with it's magical twilight. But Hawaii stole our hearts years ago and we often escape to Oahu to stay with our grandparents. We love Hawaiian culture and the aloha attitude and often daydream of living in the islands.
