This wedding was Amazing to Shoot! Started off at "The Salon and Spa on Gamble Bay" and the Ceremony was at "Hood Canal Vista Pavilion" was Such a Gorgeous location with a lovely backdrop, and the town was SO, SO, SO Cute! All the businesses were inside Quaint Little Old Houses. And the "Buena Vista Cemetery" Shots that the Bride and Groom requested...turned out pretty cool, I was going for Classy, Elegant yet Creative. We loved The town of Port Gamble so much that we went back the next day ( as tired as I was) to experience the town again this time we just had to let our 18 year old daughter experience it as well, we knew she would get a kick out of The Tea Room, where Adam and I had eaten lunch the day before, we literally ate the last of their Clam Chowder...we tried to order it again the next day, and they told us that we had eaten the last of it the day before...we thought that was funny! While we were eating lunch before the wedding, the previous day... 2 Tea Room guests were telling us about the Charm bracelets that you can collect from all of the businesses in town...so we definately knew we had to bring Finesse (our daughter) a chain from the Antique store and get her started with a charm from the tea room, so we did we knew she would love the idea of coming back the next day with us, to collect all of the Town charms...So now we both have Beautiful matching Mother/Daughter charm bracelets, that we wear all of the time. It was so much fun...we spent like 5-6 hours eating, shopping, walking around, taking pics. and eating again before we left. I was right... Finesse loved the town as much as we did. Can't wait to go back and bring our Parents this time.

I thought this video would be helpful for any Beginning Wedding Photographers...When I first started shooting weddings, I remember looking for videos online so that I could see a photographer in action...to see where it was okay to stand, how close to get to the couple, what type of cameras/equipment to carry, flash no flash, But I was unable to find very many videos, that focused on the Photographer. So I hope this video will be helpful to anyone who is getting ready to shoot their first wedding...Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have ; )
Ciara and Randal,
I just wanted to take this time to Thank you for allowing me to capture your Beautiful, Magical Day...I loved the venue you chose "Hood Canal Vista Pavilion" is one of my favorite venues now. And the town is just SO SO SO Cute. Ciara you looked Amazing in your Dress, I really enjoyed your MOH Tara...she was a joy to be around, and had lots of cool ideas...and I must say your guests were the most respectful guests I have ever worked around...they kept asking if it was okay to stand behind me and take photos? or Is it okay to take this shot after you? They made sure they were not getting in my way...Just very, very respectful guests! I hope you all are having a great honeymoon....Okay back to working on your images now ;)
