End of Summer Family Session in Naches - The Franke Family!

Yakima Family Photographers

Take a look at this great bunch of people! The Frankes are good friends of ours and we were so excited to be able to photograph them last night at Fontaine Estates. It's the perfect time of year for bright green orchards, fresh fruit, apple bins, and just the right temperature on an early September evening. Katie chose neutral tones for their family color scheme and she nailed the outfits if you ask me :) We came into the session with some ideas, but I'm glad they were able to add some of their own props and flare as well. I'm a big fan of just going with the flow and photographing things as they unfold, so I was happy when Ryan threw out the idea of doing a triple stacked shoulder ride, or when Gracie squished her nose so Katie joined in too. These Frankes are wonderful people inside and out, and I look forward to visiting their home for years to come and seeing these portraits on their walls!










We love photographing young families! Please contact us for more info and availability.

Ashlee + Brandon || Married at Cascade Gardens

Yakima Wedding Photographers

Memory Montage photographers Rhiann and Haley photographed this wedding at Cascade Gardens in Yakima, WA. In her comments about the wedding, Rhiann shared, "Ashlee has a vintage/classic beauty about her that I find to be flawless. She is just a sweet and kind soul. Brandon is quiet with a kind smile and his adoration of his bride was obvious! They laugh easily together and lean on each other for strength." 

Some unique features of this wedding included the use of pearls in the decorations and the different colors used for the bridesmaid dresses. It was very tastefully done. Additionally, the flower girl's dress was perhaps the most beautiful one we have ever seen! So elegant and adorable! And to make it even better, the flower girl was the bride and groom's daughter!Another feature that made this wedding stand out was the love, support and encouragement that both Ashlee and Brandon's parents gave throughout the day. 


“Happiness in marriage is a moment by moment choice. 
A decision to love, forgive, grow and grow old together.” - Fawn Weaver

Brandon and Ashlee, may you always find happiness in marriage and enjoy the journey of growth together!

Wedding at Promise Gardens in Pasco, WA || Kim + Matt

Pasco Wedding Photographers

Tavis and Amy photographed this wedding at Promise Gardens in Pasco, WA. Kim and Matt seem to be very well suited and very much in love. You can be the judge as you look through the pictures, but this day was fun for everyone involved! From groomsmen pictures on a trampoline and swing-set, to lawn games, a photo booth and tree swing for the guests at the reception, to the bride and groom skipping through the woods...Fun memories, inside jokes, and lots of laughter are all great descriptions of Kim and Matt's wedding day.

Kim is in medical school and Matt is an engineer. As a couple, they love their husky dogs. You'll see a few photographs of Kim in her wedding dress with her puppies. Something that was very unique to this wedding was the fact that tons of wedding guests were English! Kim's parents came here from England when she was three and their family decided to stay! There were about 15 people or so who traveled from England just for the wedding! Another noteworthy details about Kim and Matt's family, is that both of their parents have been married for 30+ years! So Kim and Matt have about 60 years of solid marriage backing. :)

Kim and Matt, what a pleasure it was to photograph your wedding day. We wish you the best in marriage and in life.

Christine + Ben || August Wedding at American Homestead

Yakima Wedding Photographers

This may sound cliche, but weddings are just so fun! It's always so exciting to meet the bride and groom, get to know their personalities and how they compliment each other, see how their taste and style comes out in their wedding attire and wedding decorations, meet their families, and stay close to them throughout the wedding, capturing all the special moments of the biggest day of their lives. These are just a few reasons why we here at Memory Montage absolutely LOVE what we do.

Christine and Ben's wedding was no exception! This couple was such a pleasure to work with. The groom, Ben, is charismatic, charming, kind, well-spoken, and very affectionate toward his bride. The beautiful bride Christine is sweet, kind, adorable and very friendly. Their chemistry together was almost unbelievable. I remember being quite impressed when I first met the bride and then met the groom separately. But man, seeing them together was almost explosive! They are so in love and such a perfect match!

During his vows to Christine, Ben recounted the moment he first met Christine. She was working at the Yakima Athletic Club and he had come there to work out. As Ben recounted the story, he shared that he was so captivated by how beautiful she was that he realized his legs were not even moving on the stationary bike! He said, "She was the most gorgeous blond I'd ever seen!"

Toward the end of the ceremony the bride and groom made a toast to each other. Now, you have to understand something...Ben is a huge Greenbay Packers fan, and Christine is a sold out Seahawks fan. Throughout the day there were tons of pokes and teases about whose team was the best, but during the ceremony they raised the glass of their spouse's team, and toasted to each other.

Unique features of this wedding include the little gold cross from her grandma that the bride had sewn onto her bouquet, the bride's brother performed the ceremony, the groom and groomsmen's choreographed dance and song dedicated to the bride during the reception, an acapella solo sung by one of the bridesmaids dedicated to the bride and groom, the fact that the bride was the only girl in her family with four brothers, the football team rivalry, the fact that they had family come to their wedding from 10 different states, the groom's family dancing the Polka at the reception, and the groom's toast to his beautiful bride. It was a great day and the people were so wholesome.

We also had the pleasure of working with American Homestead and even though it was extra smokey that day, it was the perfect setting for portraits. Cascade Catering provided a delicious meal, Blooming Elegance created fabulous floral arrangements, and Kerri's cakes made delicious cupcakes. The bride's dress was from Fashion Corner and the groom's suit was Alfani from Macy's.
