I was lucky enough to spend the day with a couple of Vashon locals. They took me to all the best and most hidden spots. I felt like I realy lucky girl not only because my tour guides had the in, but also because they were such a pleasure to hang out with and get to know.
Lena and Geoff booked me about 16 months ago – and I was immeditly on board especially when she mentioned ‘home-grown, backyard wedding with 300 people and lots of piella and dancing till the wee hours’. Lena is an example of another client who say my work and immediatly connected with it. I cannot stress how important it is to like let if not have fun with your wedding photographer, everything about this relationship that you hear is true -we are with you more than anyone on your wedding day, we ask you really personal questions, we encourage open hearts and intimacy, that is all really pesonal stuff. This is exactly why I take lots of time during the engagement session to get to know each other, I don’t hold back, I want my clients to know exactly who I am and how I approach posing and taking photos (for example: I talk and ask questions but I also ask my clients never to look at me when they answer those questions)
Vashon is really unbeilevably beautiful, from the minute you get off the ferry from Tacoma it feels like you are in a distant forested jungle. I shot a wedding last year on Orcan Island and I can say the same is true for that region, just breahtaking. After a quick stop at the Vashon Island Roaster, we drove over to ‘The Bluffs’ and took a short hike up to the most insane view!
During our time together I learned that these two have known each other since kindergarten – how romantic! However it wasn’t until college that their love really blossomed. Oh be still me heart!
Anyway, thats all for now, enjoy!
