Wedding Photography at the American Homestead || Justine + Mike

Yakima Area Wedding Photographers
I'll be the ocean so deep and wide
And catch the tears whenever you cry
I'll be the breeze after the storm is gone
To dry your eyes and love you warm
That's how strong my love is...

Justine and Mike danced their first dance as husband and wife to Otis Redding's classic, "That's How Strong My Love Is." Mike proposed to Justine on Christmas of 2015 and they were married at the American Homestead in Naches on May 21st, 2016. Family, friendship and heritage were themes the couple thoughtfully threaded throughout the ceremony. Mike's family has an antique spoon that has been passed down for generations. The spoon was hidden in the bridal bouquet that Justine carried down the aisle. We were also able to capture some beautiful photographs of a blue pendant that belonged to Justine's grandmother. Justine left a gift of silver cuff-links for the groom to wear and was surprised to receive a diamond pendant from her groom!

The bridal party had lots of laughs and kept the mood of the day lighthearted. Before the wedding, the couple had shared with us how much they enjoy dynamic and candid photography. The bridal party, especially the groomsmen, made sure there were plenty of opportunities for them. During the ring ceremony, the officiate started with, "repeat after me... I can't feel my face when I'm with you," she repeated... "But I love it." - quoting a popular song that is out right now. After throwing some humor into this serious occasion, the bride and groom exchanged very meaningful and emotional vows. Justine & Mike - thank you for having us as a part of your wedding! May your love continue to grow and remain ever strong!

A Walk in Eschbach Park - Yakima Engagement || Heather + Luke

Yakima Engagement Photographers

We photographed this sweet couple at Eschbach Park and at various locations around Naches, Washington. These two were a pleasure to photograph because they are so natural and at ease with one another. There were lots of favorite images to choose from for this blog, but four in particular, captured the day best. The first photograph of the couple strolling through the field together was characteristic of how smoothly the weather cooperated and our time together progressed. The second photo worth mentioning is the image of Luke holding Heather in front of the water bordered with yellow flowers. This is why we love photographing outdoors in the springtime. The image of the couple jumping, for all they are worth, in the middle of the road is representative of their silly, energetic side. Heather was even willing to dangle her toes off of a rocky bolder for us, but only because Luke had a strong hold on her. Congratulations on your engagement Heather and Luke!

Yakima Valley Engagement || Emily + Chris

Yakima Engagement Photographers

Well our dream came true recently when we were able to photograph an engagement session at a dreamy lookout location on South Naches Road! It's a rocky cliff area we have driven by a million times, but Tavis and I  had never had the opportunity to stop and explore before now. These two were adventurous enough to basically do anything we said, so it was the perfect fit! We fell in love with the texture of the rocks and the variety of scenery at this location.

We first met Emily and Chris at Emily's family session last fall. It was great getting to know them more one-on-one during this session. We joked around the whole time and had lots of laughs - felt like we were just having an evening with old friends! By the end of the night we had some dust and cobwebs on us, but it was all worth it :) Their photos are AMAZING..... check them out!
