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 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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
