2019 : Behind the Scenes & Bloopers

Why I started collecting the least flattering photos of Kyle & I on a folder in my desktop, we will never know. But 3 years later – this is one post that our friends and clients always love. 2019, we loved you. You were crazy busy most of the time, and I still have no idea how to keep my hair frizz-free even after being alive for 30 whole years, but at the end of it all – we had the VERY BEST year with our amazing clients.

So take a look through these behind the scenes & so many bloopers. These unedited moments that show you just how weird we really are. And if we look like your kind of people? Let’s work together. We’d really love to photograph your wedding days or family photos!

Best of 2019 : Weddings

Today, I am drinking an Irish Cream Cold Foam & sitting in my living room thinking about how much of a GIFT that 2019 was. We were able to photograph some of the most beautiful and intimate moments for our clients, and made some amazing friendships throughout it all.

I think it is important to set goals and dream big for the New Year. In fact, so much of the business and life that we have now with KLP is the result of reaching goals that I set years ago, and being consistent. But even more important, I think is to look back and reflect on all that we HAVE accomplished in a year.

We photographed 14 beautiful weddings this year. Had the opportunity to work at some venues that have been on our wish list for years. Met lots of new friends. And had the busiest booking season, right in the middle of 2019! So, that means while I was photographing and editing 2019 weddings – we were already booking almost all of our 2020 weddings. To say it was a whirlwind is an understatement. Wedding Season started for us in April and went through the beginning of November! It was a beautiful summer – and even with some crazy rainfall in the midst of it – we happened to have dry summer weddings, which was such a gift to all of our couples who had planned outdoor weddings!

Our hope is – that when you look through these images you can feel the love and joy that we got to experience with these people. What a gift to be invited into some of the most special days of their lives. Not only for our brides & grooms – but for the families and friends. We have watched parents cry tears of joy when giving toasts, we have listened to stories that have made us laugh uncontrollably from groomsmen, we have watched as friends have traveled from near and far to celebrate each wedding day. What a beautiful celebration a wedding is. We are so grateful for each one of these days.

Thank you, KLP Couples. You will forever be our favorites. Thank you for letting us be a part of so many of your best moments. We truly love you.

Arianna & Nick : Shooting Star Gardens Wedding : Maple Valley, WA

Nick & Arianna’s Maple Valley Wedding was one of our FAVORITES. These two are truly so kind and welcoming. Their wedding day was the same and people loved seeing these two say their vows and dance the night away!

We met these two over doughnuts a few years ago and talked about their upcoming wedding. They were the first couple we booked for 2018. Since their wedding, I’ve gone on breakfast and coffee dates with Ari. She’s one of the brides that not only was a client – but became a great friend. Kyle and Nick just laughed at me because during their wedding – I was trying to demonstrate a pose for Ari & Nick, and I ended up holding Ari’s hand. I DID NOT LET GO FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES…I was just talking and talking and not even realizing it. I knew in that moment that this girl was gonna be in my life for a long time.

Their wedding was full of beautiful, personal details. Their vows talked about the things they have been through and their relationship and all of the guests watched with smiles and tears in their eyes because these two are a perfect match. So grateful for these two and to have been part of such an important day!

Now, for the images!

Best of 2018 : Weddings

Wow. As another year begins it is such an incredible feeling to look back on the last year and see all of the things that we were able to accomplish in our business.

2018 was incredible. We photographed 11 beautiful wedding days and made some lifelong memories & friendships.

This year, we knew we needed to focus on quality over quantity – and in doing so, cut back the amount of weddings that we were going to be photographing. We can honestly say that it was the very best decision for not only us – but for our clients.

We truly are so lucky to have been a part of each one of these wedding days. If only I could show you every single moment we were able to capture – you would fall in love with each of our couples. But – as you look through these images – I hope you are able to get a glimpse of each of these couples. Each wedding was so incredibly unique and had different moments that made each day feel new and special.

While you look through, we hope you feel two things. Joy & Love. These are the words that we strive for. A wedding is full of celebration. By not only the couple, but families, friends, and guests. We have truly been able to photograph some PARTIES! Also, LOVE. Not only do we get to capture the love between our couples – but between parents and their children, between siblings, between friends who have grown up together, and between families who are now adding a new member to their families.

We are starting 2019 so proud of all that we accomplished in 2018 & so grateful for each one of these people pictured. They truly made this year one we will absolutely never forget.

Cheers, Friends. And now – for the images that made this year.

Do We Need an Engagement Session?

The Engagement Session.

Do you need one? Do you even WANT one? What’s the big deal? Is it something you can live without?

Let me break down the reasons why the Engagement session is one of the best ways you can ensure to LOVE your wedding photos!

#1 : Get to Know Your Wedding Photographer

Every photographer works (shoots) differently. I have photographer friends, and they are wonderful! But we each have our own style and way of doing things. Your wedding day is one of the MOST important days in your life and the photos are going to be something you care about for years and years to come. Having a photographer there who you click with is very important.

This is one of the reasons that I highly recommend using your wedding photographer to photograph engagement photos. Even if you have a friend who has offered a free session – take it! But, don’t use it in replace of a session with your wedding photographer. Getting to know how YOUR photographer functions, photographs, & communicates will make you feel comfortable with them on the wedding day!

Your photographer is with you from when you are putting on your makeup & getting dressed – all the way until you are saying goodbye and getting in the car to drive away. It’s important you WANT them to be with you for these moments. If your photographer doesn’t make you feel comfortable? BAD SIGN. On your wedding day, you want to be surrounded by family & friends – your photographer should be one of them.

#2 : It allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera.

It is not uncommon for my clients to express a little anxiety about being photographed. Even us photographers can get a little nervous about being in front of the camera. The engagement session is like a trial run. It allows you to get used to how it feels to have a camera on you for more than just one photo at a birthday party.

It also allows you & your fiancé to get comfortable with a little PDA while being photographed. On a wedding day, there are family & friends around – this is the perfect time to get used to giving a kiss, or being snuggled up while having photos taken. The engagement session is very low stress & provides a way for you to be affectionate without an audience. Then – once the wedding day arrives, you will have seen just HOW good the photos look & will be eager to get snuggled up because you know just how sweet it is!

#3 : GREAT Pictures!

-Weddings are full of details. Guest books, invitations, thank you cards, wedding websites, bridal showers, and the list goes on! I have found that a lot of my brides like to use engagement sessions as “Save the Dates” or even in their invitations! I have also had brides use photos as decorations around the wedding, in slideshows, and they even have made an album of their engagement photos for friends to sign as a guestbook. By having some pretty photos of you and your fiancé, it could help out with little details. Who knows when you might need a beautiful photo!

#4 : It allows the GROOM to feel comfortable on the wedding day.

Most of the time – it is the bride who is doing the communicating with me regarding the wedding day. But grooms also feel nervous about being photographed, even if they don’t always show it. This is a way for the groom to get some time to know me in a relaxed setting & will make him feel better about the wedding day!

5.) You Will Learn What STYLE of Image You Love The Most

Each couple is different and the favorite images vary in style. Some of my couples love a candid photo where they are laughing. Others prefer a sweet and romantic photo that involves being wrapped up tight in an embrace. The engagement session will give you a variety of images so that you can see which style of photo you gravitate towards. I love when my clients tell me “I LOVE WHEN……” so that I can make sure to give them images in the style they prefer the most!

Now that you know the details! Let’s see the results! Here are some of my FAVORITE engagement photos!
