Rachel and Sam . Wedding

High school sweethearts, Rachel and Sam finally tied the knot and chose to have a Northwest theme because a lot of their guests were from out of town. I would have never thought to put this combination together, but the quintessential northwest outdoors feel was infused into an indoor modern setting, and done so with tastefulness. Some wonderful aspects of their wedding include a scrapbook that Sam gave his new bride which chronicled their entire nine year relationship, heirloom pearls and cuff links given from Sam’s grandfather, Rachel’s grandfather hitting a huge milestone of 100 years old, and the woman who …

Video Sessions by DvPixl Films!

Even more than yesterday’s images, I am super excited to show you a video of Rachel and Sam’s engagement session by DvPixl films!

For our own wedding, the best decision we made was hiring him as our videographer hands down. Moses used to live in New York so it was harder to refer him, but not anymore because him and his wife recently moved to Seattle. He was also commissioned for Laina and Ray’s wedding and she described him and his …

Rachel and Sam . Engagement

Rachel told me that she’s been following us since xanga days and that we were the one non-negotiable aspect for her wedding, so one of her first calls after the proposal was to us. She had us at xanga. During our first face-to-face meeting, Lisa popped by to say hi because she saw me in passing, and Rachel immediately recognized her from our blog. Love that! Rachel and Sam are high school sweethearts so they’ve been dating for a very long time, but they still look at each other and treat each other like they just started dating. Something every couple …

Rachel . Personal Workshop

Love is a better teacher than duty. -Albert Einstein Ever since the first year of our business, we frequently received questions and inquiries on photography and business related questions. One by one, we answered each one of them, and don’t get me wrong, we love receiving emails because it tells us that we’re trusted enough to seek advice from, but it has come to the point where we receive more than we can handle in our day-to-day (sorry recent emailers!). It’s been requested and in long discussions between H and I to hold our own workshops, but timing just hasn’t been …
