I mean EXCUSE THEM. We knew Alana and Zach were a hot ticket but they brought the real heat on their wedding day: a sexy salsa first dance, serving face for their portraits in a bomb Pioneer Square loft, and making a rainy weekend in Seattle feel like a balmy day in Bali (which is […]

When we first started shooting weddings, we ONLY shot 12 hour days. We wanted to cover every aspect of the day, make sure “the first shot of espresso to the last shot of tequila” were all properly documented, and be ready for anything. Aaaaaand holy moly do you know how long a 12 hour day […]

Ok, if we’ve met, you KNOW that I tend to talk a little shit about LA. I just don’t get how anyone can survive in traffic all day every day, I’m not really a “sun” person, and my aesthetic is more “bundled up in greyscale” than “freewheeling blonde” so it’s never felt like the right […]

When the stars align and a couple contacts you six weeks before their courthouse wedding and YOU’RE AVAILABLE and it feels like a Christmas miracle… it’s even better when the couple is Claire and Bramble (celeb couple name Clamble if you were wondering). Inner circle only, a perfect weepy ceremony on the Seattle Courthouse rooftop, […]

DAMMIT Caitlin and Dillon! You two have the story that every freshman in college dreams of– meeting the love of your life in Poli-Sci lecture and spending your adorable youth together before having a glorious Dairyland wedding in a floral velvet suit with your sweet doggo Lupin literally at your side when you say your […]

Remember when Brittany and Hollis got engaged and we had one of the most profound experiences doing their engagement photos in Sodo? WELL THEY GOT MARRIED. And Tim officiated. And it was just the four of us, in a field near Mt Hood in Oregon, crying and laughing and taking our sweet time all day. […]

Considering Sammie and Christopher were SERIOUS troopers during their engagement shoot last January, when the heavens erupted and we were running around Seattle in a sleety haze, dang did these two deserve a real wedding day solid with a balmy, sunshiney day in Seattle (no matter what month it is, sun is never guaranteed here– […]

By the time Morgan made it down the aisle to her cute Argentinian groom Nacho, she miiight have been a few minutes late. He was sweating bullets at the front of the chapel, wondering “did she leave me in the lurch?” And the palpable joy on both of their faces when they saw the other, […]

Ashley and Josh were flying into Seattle for their wedding, and they wanted to: -wander around downtown with us for a few hours to really focus on photos before their ceremony -eat donuts at Pike Place (BE STILL MY HEART) -get married at a restaurant they really loved in Seattle (hi La Spiga, we love […]

It all started with Jordyn and Cameron planning their dream wedding in Italy… but right before we all bought tickets, they realized they could have everything they wanted right in the heart of Seattle (thanks to the Corson Building, which is like stepping off the street in Georgetown to a magic fairyland of old European […]

A couple who love hip-hop, Hennessy, and the Huskies, who take the time to personally drop off gifts at your house two days after their wedding, who got married at the Fremont Foundry (a cement dream and one of our favorite Seattle venues), and who make sure to include a run for Dicks burgers at […]

When they were dating, Sonia traveled many miles to visit Chris in Africa. She knew it was real love when he woke up in the dark, long before dawn, and boiled gallon after gallon of water so she could have a hot shower (from a bucket, which he held over her head) when she woke […]

Day Two, ya beautiful babies, let’s get this dream team MARRIED! Saturday started at the Sikh Gurdwara in Palatine for Sonia and Chris’ gorgeous Anand Karaj (side note, the vibe in a Sikh Gurdwara is one of the most beautiful things we’ve ever experienced and we were really sad to leave). After a quick clothes […]

It’s not that I’ve been putting off blogging Sonia and Chris’ insane three day Indian wedding in Chicago, I just have SO MUCH TO SAY that I’ve been– ok wait yes I have been putting it off– in favor of trading dog photos with Sonia, texting the bridesmaids about how much I love them, making […]

HEY, here’s a good idea: if you just bought a house, and you haaaaappen to be driving by it on your wedding day, why not do your couples’ portraits in your still-unfurnished dining room? All we need is a window– let’s just chill at your house for a second before heading back out. Carissa and […]

Lots of weed. Lots of love. A groom whose tattooed skull might intimidate you, until you spent thirty seconds with his sweet soul (and saw him cry in gratitude for his new wife– over and over– their whole wedding day). A tight knit family who pulled us into their bear hug the second we showed […]

Listen, friends. If real fashion is the ability to combine high/low, and we have no greater examples of this in our modern midst than Barry and Lindsay and we owe them a debt of gratitude. The most stylish duo we know– when they emailed us to come down to our fave venue Prospect House in […]

Durham, North Carolina: Bull City. We broke into an old tobacco factory with the amazing souls Ryan and Cassandra to escape the rain on their wedding day and ended up with some of our favorite images ever, including one of Cassandra that somehow made the cover of Rangefinder Magazine and made our year (was this […]

Bros, listen. If you have a wedding tradition where you and your dudes rip the groom’s tux shirt off, take your own shirts off and scream-sing “Wagon Wheel” in an emotional circle before drinking beers out of your shoes, obviously we’re interested in being there (even though having that much sweat flung onto me is […]

Last New Years Eve, New York City had the second lowest temperature in recorded history: 11 degrees not counting wind chill, and holy shit what even is life. But did that stop Kara and Paul from dashing out to the icy waterfront in Battery Park or braving the wind tunnels of the tip of Manhattan […]

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.
