Sarah and Julian : Tacoma Portraits

As part of a recent mentor session with photographer Tina Loveridge, we photographed Sarah and Julian around downtown Tacoma. We had a blast getting up close and personal with these lovebirds while sharing a bit of our approach and passion with Tina. Aren’t they gorgeous?!

Kirsten and Ty : Tacoma Portraits

Kirsten and Ty were in town for a few days and wanted some portraits in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. We, of course, were into that idea. We had a great time exploring Tacoma with these two, showing off some of our favorite spots in the city.

Christina and Ryan : Tacoma Engagements

We had so much fun photographing Christina and Ryan. They’re up for anything, and it so obvious they’ve got it bad for each other. She is from the Pacific Northwest and he had been up in Alaska working for several months, so the cold, wet weather definitely didn’t phase them. There is something so magical about this time of year. It is so refreshing to have that brisk air, crunchy leaves and moss growing by the minute. Throw a gorgeous couple into the mix and it can’t be beat! We can’t wait for their December wedding!

Eric and Lydia : Seattle Engagements

These two lovebirds were a pleasure to photograph. They are full of sweet love and emotion, and were so comfortable sharing that love in front of the camera. Summer in the Pacific Northwest is pretty magical for so many reasons, chief among them evening canoe rides and frolicking on sun-soaked blankets.

Stefanie and Elias : Salt Lake Engagement

When we got the call that my little sister was engaged, it was no surprise to us! Stefanie and Elias are so great together, it just seemed natural that Elias would soon become a part of our family. I can still remember my sisters wild curls as she ran around in my brothers cowboy boots as an adorable toddler. But there is still something surreal about your sweet little sister getting married. She’s all grown up. We love you both and are so thrilled for you! We can’t wait to be there next month to celebrate the union of two families!

Jimmy and Madeline Maternity: Tacoma

Our friends, Jimmy & Madi are expecting a baby boy very soon! We are so thrilled for them. Especially because that means our Lucia will have another pal! Madi is one of the most beautiful pregnant women I have ever encountered. You know, the one with absolutely no swelling, all baby, and from behind she looks like a little hottie that is definitely not pregnant! Every girls dream. We love these two and are so excited for this amazing journey of parenthood they are about to embark on. Hearts exploding with love and joy. Parenthood is the greatest.

Carmen and David : Seattle Engagements

One of the best parts of being a photographer is hunting for color and light. And Carmen and David’s engagement session was one of those satisfying moments where the two worked together so beautifully. These lovebirds were so easy to photograph! They’re such a sweet couple, and we can’t wait for their July wedding at Lake Crescent!

Adrian and Melissa : Tacoma

We like to photograph our dear friends, Adrian and Melissa. In fact, we try to do it once a year. We spent time traveling around, exploring some of our local treasures. We’re really going to miss these two as they move to New York so Melissa can study at NYU, but we are so happy for them and what the future holds!Adrian-and-Melissa-2012-Web-5

Roger and Lyndzee : Tacoma

Our glorious friends, Roger and Lyndzee, came up from California to celebrate their ninth anniversary. They loved the trees and the fall colors but weren’t so crazy about the cold. We had a great time laughing and picture-taking with these two!

Brandon and Sadie : Tacoma

Brandon and Sadie are one of our couples that got married in 2010. We love these guys and were excited when they came up from Utah to visit the Puget Sound area and check out the UW campus. We showed them around the area and took advantage of a few minutes to take a couple of portraits. Brandon and Sadie love outdoor adventures and both drive Subarus. These guys belong in the PNW.
