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 […]

Ahmagah you guys, it’s been three weeks since we peeked our little heads up into the blog and shared some of the good shit we’ve been working on! We’ve been in Europe and Morocco for the last two weeks, getting our heads together after this year. 40 weddings, 50 engagements, a little commercial work here […]

Two of our most favorite people (Coco and G, obviously). We’re thankful for Gaylin, her incredible husband Alastair, their sweet pups, and our champagne tradition. We popped into G and A’s bomb Ballard house this summer to document them in their light-filled new space and toast to the next phase. Except… Gaylin didn’t drink with […]

At a wedding recently, we had a DJ call us over say that if we wanted to take the couple out for sunset photos, we had a MAXIMUM of 15 minutes — he needed the couple back in the room by 7:30 so they could start the bouquet toss, which would lead to the garter […]

Welcome to Camp Clarke, a Wes Andersonesque dream world created by Lauren, a fashionista from the far off land of Switzerland and her man-piece Bodhi, a rugged PNW boy, to get their favorite folks from all over the globe together in one spot to say their “I dos.” After touring wedding venues all over the […]

In case anyone was wondering, it’s not intimidating at all to shoot the wedding of two big-time talented videographers, don’t worry! It definitely doesn’t make you stress about stepping up your cinematic game and delivering something that’s worthy of the creativity these two have in every cell of their bodies… jk yes it does, and […]

I listened to an interview recently and the guest ( I can’t remember who it was!) said something to the tune of “the more activities you cram into your world, the slower time goes by. It’s when you don’t do anything at all that time seems to flicker by without you noticing.” I’ve been thinking […]

As soon as I walked into Tara’s childhood home, on the sprawling Stanwood lot where she was about to marry Drew, my eye was drawn immediately to a collection of wedding photos assembled on an entryway shelf. I pulled one image in particular because it struck me how much it looked like Tara– she and […]

Two years ago when we dropped it all and left for Thailand, Alana was waiting for us on the other side of the flights with street food and arms flung wide open. She’s lived in Chiang Mai, the darling lil gem of the north, for half a decade now, and the sois and secret spots […]

I like to call this wedding “a collection of photos of Shane crying every time he sees Jenna.” These two flew down from Anchorage to host a bodacious wedding at the Four Seasons Seattle, wandered downtown looking fly as hell,  threw a killer dance party, and oh yeah… Shane lost it hourly. They’re such cuties. […]

Oh, this old thing? It’s just a five minute photoshoot with Sarah and Tyson, in between our annual Bastille Day traditions of overeating French food and singing the Marsellaise too loudly after a bottle or two of wine. These guys are the most inspiring humans we’ve ever met. If I could bottle up their exhales […]

The last time we showed you a peek at Emma and Amberly, it was the Thursday before their wedding, they had just gotten off the plane from Atlanta, and we were taking tequila shots together in Georgetown. Emma hadn’t fully assembled her wedding outfit, they had a bunch of loose ends to pull together, but […]
