Well, the holiday season is upon us! Is it just me or does December arrive unexpectedly every year? Normally, I would avoid saying things like "time flies" because they get repeated over and over and it bugs me to no end. However, the truth in that statement surprises me every year...

Nevertheless, Airika and I did manage to find the time last weekend to get out and shoot a few photos of ourselves for our Christmas card. If you have never gotten a card from us, send us an email at and we'll put you on the list!

If you have a favorite, please be sure to let us know in the comments below. We still haven't picked the one we're going to use for our card! ~Gerald

Sea Bass, getting into trouble...

Meet our kitty, Sebastian. We took these pics a week ago, after our bridal show. He thought that the flower vase was a good place to play. Isn't he cute! :)

More workshop photos

It's always interesting to me to see how different Airika and I are when it comes to our style of photography. We always shoot the same events together, yet our images always look remarkably different. Some of you may remember that we went to a workshop for wedding photographers in Couer d'Alene this past September. The following images were all taken during one of the model shoots at that workshop. I have paired up some of the images that Airika and I shot at about the same time--the only difference is the lens, the person behind the camera, and where they chose to stand. These are great examples of our very different takes on the exact same subject... enjoy!

Seattle Fall Bridal Spectacular!

Yesterday, Gerald and I attended the Fall Bridal Spectacular in Seattle. We had such a fun day talking to brides about their wedding plans! Here's a shot that Gerald caught of one of the models during the fashion show. I absolutely love, love, love these veils and cannot wait until one of our brides wear one. Any takers?

All the soon-to-be-brides were beaming with joy, flaunting their recently polished rings and eager to share they love stories with anyone who would listen. However, the brides who shared our vision for a fresh and unique approach to wedding photography really got our hearts pumping!

When asked about our style I realized that our tagline really says it all--


LIFE: Our photos are all about life--we tell stories through our imagery and the best way to do that is to let people be themselves! Whether we're shooting a wedding or an engagement session, we are all about capturing the subtle (and not so subtle) interactions between people. Some people call it "photojournalism," some call it "candid," but we just call it as it is--"life" in its truest form.

LOVE: Hm. Isn't this one obvious? We are WEDDING photographers, after all!

ART: We've been told that our ability to create art is the primary reason that most of our couples hire us. We are constantly evaluating light, texture, space, color, lines, backgrounds and angles. We incorporate all of these into the way we shoot so every wedding we photograph is a truly unique reflection of that couple's story and personality. Art is subjective, right? Therefore, we go to great lengths to get to know each couple before their wedding (all of our packages include engagement sessions) so that by the time we photograph their wedding, we KNOW the kind of imagery that speaks to them and we are able to effecivley incorporate their artistic tastes into the way we cover their event. Of course, we always end up getting some signature artistic shots "just for us," and couples end up loving those as well! It is, after all, the reason they hired us.

Thanks again to every bride who stopped by our booth. We enjoyed meeting you and look forward to reconnecting with you to tell your wedding story!
