We were calling each other our little darlings after one Skype call. Val and Joe and a bop around Georgetown (drinks at Ciudad Georgetown is my new hot tip, ok boozehounds? Just go) and then a wild hare from Tim to drag them to our studio and get some fashion blogger shots. And then we […]

Hello Detroit, city of my photographic dreams. Hello Ford Piquette Plant. Hello incredible microcosm of American history (I seriously could not read enough books about Henry Ford after this weekend). Hello Travis, the sweetest souled man who cried at every corner and hello Heidi, our beloved laid back bride who we’ve adored since the first […]

When we were 24, Kirsten and I came home from dates at the same time and wished on leftover 4th of July sparklers that we would marry the boys we had just gone out with. And I laughed about that moment so many times during her wedding, just giddy that the universe had better men […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Claire is the queeeeen. One of our biggest supporters from day one, this girl has a deep and special place in our lives and she ain’t bad in front of the camera NEITHA. So when she got engaged to one of my earliest middle school friends […]

I have a soft spot for my fellow Gig Harborites… two babies who met at Tidefest and spent their early love hanging out at Round Table Pizza (btw the Round Table salad bar is still the greatest ever) and grew into an adult kind of love, the real deal. I’ve said it before and I’ll […]

Let’s talk FOMO: I don’t have it. I remember very clearly the year I decided to jump off the train of feeling like everything was happening wherever I wasn’t. I was a junior in college, surrounded by options, and realized that I spent every party planning the NEXT party. Switching majors. Wishing I were abroad […]

Seattle, I love you. I love your mountains and your water, your clouds and your drizzle. I love your five hour sunsets and the absolute bounty of ingredients you have in your backyard. I even have a place in my heart for your passive aggression, your inability to zipper merge, your lack of NBA team, […]

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, […]
