Seattle Pride Fest 2013 So Hot!

It was a rare Seattle June day, scorching hot and not a cloud in sight! Besides the risk of sun burns on fare WA skin, it couldn’t have been a better day for Pride Parade and Festival at the Seattle Center. Enjoy our video with highlights of our adventure:

Being the 1st year in Seattle where couples can get married at Pride & with the recent rulings of Prop 8 & DOMA providing comfort that it wouldn’t change, we felt that this was the year not to miss! We heard that there was going to be a massive wedding for couples in the afternoon and really felt a desire to support and photograph such a historical event. Plan A was to ride the Light Rail to the Westlake Center, they allow dogs that are carried in a travel bag. However, when we arrived at Seatac to park the Light Rail parking lot was full an overflowing. Apparently everyone else had the same great idea. Blocks away the street parking was full to the rim. So, we drove downtown, found a spot in Capitol Hill and walked down to our first sight of festivities, the parade. Everyone was happy, care free, and genuinely enjoying themselves.

Love Wins

wedding photos Love Wins

Love Wins for Marriage Equality in Washington State with the approval of Ref 74! YAY! Thank you 2012 WA State voters who made this happen!! We love to photograph weddings of all kinds, LGBTQ included, and to be honest some of the Best weddings we have photographed have been same-sex weddings. The meaning, seriousness, love, tears and support are multiplied when a couple has been together for so long and are finally able to legally marry.

You don’t have to be planning a wedding to hire us for photos; we provide portraits, pin ups, pet photography and digital artwork for people and pets of all ages…

Yes, we are a straight couple (but not narrow minded). We believe in and support love equally. We have family members and friends who are LGBTQ and consider ourselves part of the community as supporters. The saddest thing we encounter during sessions are these types of questions: ‘Are you ok if we kiss in front of you?’ …really, you will be treated like all couples; no hesitance, no judgement, and hopefully an end result that we will all be proud of. You can decide if your images are kept private or shared with the world, galleries can be kept locked with a password if you want. (although we love sharing samples our work, so if you’re not shy neither are we).

Here are a couple wedding videos of past clients. Enjoy!
