Spring Engagement Session in Yakima, WA || Maria + Ruben

Yakima Engagement Photographers

It is always refreshing to see two people who love each other deeply, and are also best friends who love to have fun with each other. This is certainly what we picked up from our time with Maria and Ruben. There were a lot of laughs during our time together. We enjoyed photographing Maria and Ruben's engagement session in the soft spring sunlight, blossoming orchards and budding trees. We look forward to photographing their wedding!

Congratulations on your engagement Maria and Ruben! May you continue to experience joy, laughter, and happiness in your relationship.

A Whimsical Fun Wedding in Yakima, WA || Katy + Andrew

Yakima Wedding Photographers

Have you ever heard the phrase, "We've been together so much that we complete each other's sentences?" Although we didn't necessarily hear Katy and Andrew finishing each other's sentences, it was evident that their thoughts and their hearts were functioning on the same wavelengths....except when it came to sharks and bears. That's right! :) Before their wedding, Katy and Andrew had a debate that questioned if a bear and a shark were in a fight, who would win? The debate went unsettled, so they took a poll in their wedding invitations and asked people to place their vote when they sent in their RSVP. There a cute display of the responses at the wedding. We're still not sure if the debate was ever resolved, but it surely resulted in lots of fun and laughter!

Speaking of laughter...these two love to laugh! And Katy's laughter is so contagious. Their day was filled with so much joy! Their first look was in a little forest in a neighbors yard where Katy used to play when she was a kid. It was a perfect April day complete with happy chirping birds and no wind.

The decorations were tasteful, the flowers whimsical, the bride and groom were beaming and the guests were elated. Other fun details of the day include the homemade bridesmaid dresses from Etsy, the first dance (as the bride and groom are excellent dancers and chose a blend of songs and different dances), the toasts and the laughter. During the toasts, the father of the bride commented that Katy is very thorough and meticulous, so he was certain she chose the right man. :) It was evident throughout the entire day that this family was very closely knit. We had the privilege of photographing the wedding for the bride's brother a few years ago too and it was great to spend time with the family and see so many familiar faces.

Katy and Andrew, we wish you the very best in your new life together!

Yakima River Canyon Engagement Photography Session || Abby + Shane

Yakima Engagement Photographers

"She turned to the sunlight 
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
'Winter is dead.'"
-A.A. Milne

Spring has sprung in the Yakima Valley and love is in the air! Especially for these two love birds, Abby and Shane. This turned out to be a wonderfully dynamic engagement session with orchard locations and the elaborate landscapes of the Yakima River Canyon. Abby and Shane have been together five years and we are thrilled we get to photograph their wedding in September. The last time Abby was photographed, she was a senior in high school! What a treat for us to capture her smile on camera once again! Shane's daughter came along on the session and we got to take some fun family portraits as well.

Congratulations on your engagement Abby and Shane! We look forward to celebrating with you at your wedding!

January Wedding in Issaquah, WA || Heather + David

Yakima Wedding Photographers

"Marriage...Love is the reason. Lifelong friendship is the gift. 
Kindness is the cause, Til' death do us part is the length." 
-Fawn Weaver

The beauty of weddings, and marriages in general, is that every one is totally different. There are no cookie cutter rules for "how-to" create your wedding, just like there are so many ways of creating a happy marriage. This quote says it well by pointing out that love is what draws people into the commitment of marriage, and friendship and kindness are the things that hold the marriage together forever. 

We especially enjoyed creating this blog for Heather and David--such a joyful couple! We hardly even need to comment on genuine love between this bride and groom because their delight is so evident in the photos! It's obvious that love brought these two together and that their relationship was founded on friendship. 

Pickering Barn in Issaquah, WA was a fantastic setting for Heather and David's January wedding. There were tons of photo locations and the lush forests of Issaquah made a glorious backdrop. The wedding colors were slate-grey, ivory, and blush pink. The reception was engaging and highlighted by a dessert bar, a soup bar, a coffee bar, and games.

We are so excited for you Heather and David! May your love continue to grow.

Yakima Winery Weddings || Cassie & Matt

Yakima Wedding Photographers

Cassie and Matt chose the handsome Fontaine Estates Winery as the setting for their wedding. This late September wedding celebrated the fall season with red, yellow, brown and orange accents, and an abundance of sunflowers. The entire day had an elegant and rustic country feel. We took photos at the winery, in the near orchards, down the road at a barn and up on the hill next to the winery. Other fun details of the day include a cookie bar, the stunning bridal shoes that the bride decorated herself, the choice displays and centerpieces and the full-on cake smash during the cake cutting! :)
