Brooke & Sean// Cle Elum Wedding

For 99% of weddings we shoot, there’s this moment before the first look when Tim has one person all ready and I have the other person all primed to go tap them on the shoulder to say hi for the first time, and I whisper something like “take your time, it’s just you and your Person now” and out of all the parts of the wedding day that can get me to cry, that little moment is always the worst.  THE WORST. I can barely finish it and just trail off and gaze off into the distance like I’m cool when really I’m trying super hard not to blink. Because the feeling when you are finally with your buddy and you remember that all the pomp and circumstance that a wedding can become is really, at its core, just you and your Person saying yes to each other and starting the forever hangz… that is so big.

Brooke and Sean’s first look was like that, except it was 7 degrees out and I think my tears froze directly onto my face, but don’t worry, their reception was totally lit as the kids say. If the bride hops up on stage to belt out “Ain’t No Other Man” with the band (and the lead singer bows down in adoration) you know you’ve got yourself a  good one.

These babies are so special to us. Brooke and Sean, ya did it.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
