Natasha is one of those gals who comes at you with such fierce smarts and get-shit-done-ness that you alllllmost don’t see the sass right away– until she drops a smirky one-liner that will have you laughing for weeks afterwards. When my fellow sassy cynics show up I feel a kindred spirit right away, and working […]

If we made a Venn diagram of the things we love (couples who travel, donuts, good fonts, down to earth families, wild dance floors, anytime someone gets married on Whidbey Island, grooms who cry their whole wedding day, taking photos in cement structures, lowkey weddings that celebrate the lurrrrve and not the pomp and circumstance, […]

My grandparents loved Portugal, frequently returning to the sunny charm and accessible beauty of the little country in Spain’s shadow. And when we went in December, I really felt like we were having a VERY similar experience to what they were having in the 70s. In all the best ways. Why haven’t tourists flooded in […]

When Laura and I were first falling in love, we’d run outside every day at dusk and spin around in the street. It was the sort of activity perfect for those in the throes of new love: frivolous, unsustainable, and utterly radiant. There was something about the light when the sun had just dipped below […]

Happy Pride Month, you beautiful babies! It’s a crazy backwards world we live in when friends and mentoring clients from all over the country often ask us if we lose followers or clients when we post about our same-sex couples. For many photographers in other areas of the world (including our little pocket of the […]

All Julianne wanted for her Swiftwater Cellars wedding was a snowstorm and a killer party. Mission accomplished. Venue: Swiftwater Cellars Dress: Marcella’s La Boutique See more Swiftwater weddings by Sullivan & Sullivan

Let me paint the picture of an instagram crush I had a couple years ago on two strangers in DC. I didn’t know them (YET) but their dog Ace was twins with our pup, they both looked like models, and they always seemed to be lounging in stylish clothes in front of the sexy brick […]

Hi! You know what I’m reeeeal into? A freaking rose gold wedding dress. And a multicultural wedding at Revolution Brewery in Logan Square, where our dear nuggets Josh and Kierstn were genuinely overjoyed to be getting married (I mean look at their faces! LOVE). Oh, also portraits at the Oak Park Conservatory, because I want […]

OKAY. How many times in life does a couple have the style and chutzpah to have their wedding spread out over an entire city, choosing the best and bombest places to be the backdrops for their day? If anyone could pull it off, it’s our girl Eireann Dolan and her new hub Sean Doolittle.  Their […]

I don’t know how some people DO IT, Y’ALL. I mean, how do you work all night in a demanding medical scene, nap for an hour, and still somehow find the strength to make a few Dark and Stormies at 11 am in your gorgeous Pilsen kitchen?! Sonia and Chris, two Seattle babies who found […]

Allison and Reid, in the shadowy quiet before their Lord Hill Farms wedding.

Hello friends. I’m going to be honest with you: Tim and I have, on occasion, been known to talk a leeetle bit of shit behind closed doors. And it’s most often about the pretentiousness of the wedding industry, which I suspect thrives on people feeling like they’re missing out on something. (It’s also very often […]

Some people just have a luminance to them, and nyc photographer carly is no exception We met Carly many moons ago at Josh Wool’s Light Theory workshop in New York. Tim and I decided to get down to brass tacks and be serious about our photography education.  We forked over money we didn’t really have, […]

When Brittany saw Hollis striding toward her on their first date, all long legs long hair long love story ahead of them, she thought “SHITTTTT I’m in trouble.”  We wormed our way into their lives when I developed a little instagram crush on these two, thanks to our girl Gaylin sharing their gorgeous faces and sweet […]

Remember Lina and Brian? The ones whose engagement shoot made me feel like an out of shape turd photographing an ethereal angel? Yeah, their wedding– with just his family from Texas, some of hers all the way from China, and their closest besties– landed right in the middle of last summer, when wildfires turned Seattle into […]

Just a queen, owning a kingdom, getting ready for her waterfront wedding in Seattle. Sometimes couples email us and it’s an an instant crush on our end. Micaela sent us THE MOST charming note about being our stalker, her multi-philangied cats, and her high school sweetheart Billy who had just become her fiance, and I […]

We’re a broken record about a few things, but nothing more than how often we tell our couples to CHILL. OUT.  Everything will come together for your wedding if they just focus on what’s most important to them and let everything else work itself out. Enter Marina and Matt: they emailed us a few weeks […]

They’re just so hot I could die. Richard and Jenny made the Monte Cristo Ballroom look like Lake Como at their Everett wedding, they’ve never taken a bad photo in their lives (which is really annoying for us normies), and WE GOT TO GO TO DICK’S WITH THEM AT THE END OF THE NIGHT! After […]

Hello fellow earthlings. We’ve returned to the blog for the inaugural 2018 post (uhhh whoops) and DO WE HAVE A DOOZY FOR YOU. Jackie and Damian’s wedding in the outer reaches of the wild west for their Montana wedding: we’re talking lightning storms as they ran through fields. We’re talking whiskey-soaked dance parties, a ceremony […]

It seems so trite to call things an “honor” these days. Everyone talks about how “humbled” they are by things (and 99% of the time are using the word wrong, it makes me feel… upset feelings). But I really can only step back in quiet awe when I think of the weekend that Katie and […]
