So, Matt and I will be off soon to photograph a much anticipated wedding in Boca Raton, Florida. We're so excited! My big plans for this trip, besides the wedding photography, include: BEACH!!!!! visiting with the family... sun... more beach... hanging out with friends... definitely some more beach...

...and most of all, I'm vowing to take time to stop and "shoot" the roses. It's easy on a desintation shoot to get wrapped up in the whirlwind of the wedding event and be so consumed by it that you spend little time documenting other things along the way. It's not all business, so I promise to have some nice, non-wedding images to share as well!

Amy & Jared's Wedding!

Amy & Jared
March 26, 2010
Tacoma, WA

Amy and Jared's wedding was SO BEAUTIFUL!!! They are fluent in ASL, so their ceremony was signed. Their vows were signed and then voiced. There was a huge audience of friends and family, including those who logged on to view the ceremony via webcam from Jared's hometown in Missouri. It's always hard to fight back the emotion when there's so much going on and I'm busy trying to capture every detail.. but this time I couldn't help it. There were tears! I'm so happy for them.

The bridal party photos and the romantics were photographed in Point Defiance Park, in Tacoma, at the Japanese Gardens/Pagoda area. The reception was held in Puyallup, WA at the Pioneer Park Pavilion... a huge venue that can accomodate a very large attendance! A personal local favorite of mine. :)

Here are some of our favorites from the day. (Sign in here to be notified when the entire event is available to view and order from online.)

This was probably my favorite image of the whole day!
..and I LOVED this one! Right after I snapped the kissing shot, the wind blew her veil right over them. :)
