We all know PNW weather during the fall time the weather can change in five minutes!  The drive over the Bride Sara was texting me that see say blue sky’s as the rain poured and covered my windshield.  But her absolutely optimistic attitude I just knew this would be a fun session rain or shine.  When I arrived to meet Sarah and Brian they had came prepared with rain jackets galoshes and even towels to cover and dry things off.  When we started the session the rain was still continuing but about 5 minutes into the True life PNW weather showed it true form and was beautiful for the rest of the session at the Mukilteo park we say blue skys and the rain had stopped.  They are having a late 2018 summer wedding in Texas we wanted to be sure to tell the true life story of Washington weather and the fun beaches, rocky sand, ferrys we have, so all their family and friends that would see the images at their wedding next summer down in Texas would be able to see.

Like The Touch Of Rain – Poem by Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was

On a man’s flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
He sings, he laughs, well I know how,
But forgets when he returns
As I shall not forget her ‘Go now’.

Those two words shut a door
Between me and the blessed rain
That was never shut before
And will not open again.

Why Booking A Wedding Photographers is the Secret Ingredient

Why Booking A Wedding Photographers is the Secret Ingredient

I have seen so Many People and other Photographer’s posting about booking your photographer early.

How important are your wedding photo’s?

 I’f they are one of the top priority’s, Then don’t delay!
You find the right photographer that fits your style and that showcases photo’s that you would love and look at again and again.

So excited you go to contact them and you find out boom there already BOOK!! Oh Wow your not gonna change your date but now you have to find someone else in your price range that will have a photo style you like.

The photographer has to invest a entire day, so not like a florist, or bakery who might have multiple wedding in one day .  Every year there is key days that get booked up much earlier then others.  So as soon as you have that day Get in touch with the Photographer and book it, Minimum is 9+ months before the wedding date.  Wedding photographers are great resources for referrals we spend the most time with the bride and groom and get the scoop on vendors they love and and how vendors are at the weddings. The secret to the perfect wedding is building a wedding community of people who work together to create a team of vendors that work as a team to help you have the perfect wedding.   Sarah Brian 34 e1487152609295 Why Booking A Wedding Photographers is the Secret Ingredient

Sailing our love through blue sky’s | Mukilteo Lighthouse Engagement Session

Pacific Northwest weather never fails to show its true beauty at the Mukilteo Lighthouse Park 

Grey sky’s the entire way down to Mukilteo, it wasn’t until we pulled it to the parking lot we finally saw that we were going to get a  break in the storm just long enough to get some great photo’s before the sun went down and it started to rain again.

They will be saying I do in the town of Chehalis at The Willapa Hill Creamery

The sky was blue that day,
speckled with white
And the sun was a pleasant orb,
Toasting the skin of the people to a light brown
Showering the tops of every wave
With diamond rays
The fishermen cast their nets
Methodically, cheerfully
And she peeked out from her hiding place,
curiosity getting the best of her
His hands smelled like crab
And he smiled, worn like the sea
And she smiled back,
hesitantly
Because, of course, it wasn’t custom,
this smiling
But she couldn’t help it
Because his eyes were kind
And he,
he couldn’t believe them
(his kind eyes)
For she was the stuff of fables
And she shed her scales for him,
the fisherman with the smiling worn eyes
And instead wore rosy pink legs
that toasted to a light brown
under the pleasant orb of sun

Sunflowers happy flower | Filigree Farm Buckley Wedding

Andy and Fallon meet through Facebook,  when he saw they had mutual friends and thought that they had met one another before. Fallon is a Girl next door beauty the type that she can look like a super model with out even trying,

Can’t blame him for wanting to meet her!   After getting to know one another they found they had a lot in common, both really loving guns and shooting so that became their favorite thing to do as a couple.   So was only suiting to incorporated different guns into the engagement session and the wedding,

Much of the meaning of sunflowers stems from its namesake, the sun itself.

 Often photographed with their tall stalks and bright petals stretched towards the sun.

This unique behavior, known as phototropism, is a motif that has appeared in many ancient myths and is viewed as a symbol of loyalty and constancy.

Their physical resemblance to the sun has also influenced their meanings.

The sunflower’s petals have been likened to bright yellow rays of sunshine, which evoke feelings of warmth and happiness.

Often associated with adoration and longevity.

 Reflecting sun’s positive characteristics, it is little surprise that people enjoy basking in the warming glow.

Brightness and warmth that naturally impart,  becoming an ideal choice for sending sentiments of cheerfulness and sunny get well thoughts.
