I just finished a very interesting shoot with my new client Courtney. She traveled all the way from Bremerton early this morning and was prepared for location and studio shoots with a variety of looks and outfits.

Ashley from Make Up Your Mind was on location to work her magic with hair and make-up. We decided to go with a softer, more natural look for the beach shots and later spiced it up for studio sultry look. It is so much fun to play with make-up and I always learn something new just by watching Ashley work.

Ashley wrote in her blog about this experience as well:

Yesterday morning I had yet another great opportunity to work with Oni Studio and one of their clients for an on location photo shoot. This was the first time I have ever gone on location with Victoria and I really loved every second of it! Not only did the make up turn out the way I wanted it to, but I got to meet two awesome ladies from Bremerton, WA who drove an hour and took a ferry to get to us. Talk about love and dedication!

We had a wide variety of clothing to work with, which made for lots of wardrobe changes. To make it easier for myself and for the client, I chose to do something more natural and neutral for the first part of the shoot. We were at the beach and the wardrobe was more of a country style, so the natural look was perfect. I stuck to taupe and a little gold and bronze shimmer on the lids with a very fine  brown eyeliner only at the lash line. The cheeks were mostly bronzer with a pop of pink on the apples, and a muted pink lip. Perfect country look!

Our client finished off the shoot in studio with a smoking hot red and black corset, so we vamped her up a bit. I added a smoky grey to the outer corners and in the crease of the eyes and a black cat-eye liner and a bright red lip to match her outfit. Gorgeous! I can’t wait to see some of the finished products!

I can’t forget to mention Courtney’s friend Jessica, who was chasing her with a hot pink bathrobe around the beach, pouring water on the umbrella to make it look like rain and organizing outfits like a personal stylist. She was the perfect wing man to have for a photo shoot!

It was a pleasure to meet these two ladies, and I hope that Courtney is happy with her photos!

    On September 10, 2011 we were honored to photograph a wedding of David Hamilton and Charity Laferriere.  It was a sunny warm day and the wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Rocky Point park area overlooking the ocean. Such a perfect location for two beautiful people to tie the knot.



    We originally met Charity, the owner and operator of Watchdawgs pet grooming and boarding back in April, when she won a free thirty minute shoot contest. It was such a pleasure working with her! Charity‚Äôs attitude and great personality showed beautifully through the camera and her pictures were unforgettable.  When she requested us to be her wedding photographers we were so honored and excited to work with her again.

    On that beautiful September day Charity and Dave, surrounded by closest family and friends, became husband and wife.


    Here are some of our favorite shots.


    This was a very touching and emotional moment, for those in attendance you know why.

    Its no surprise to learn where Charity inherited her considerable dance moves from! Her father, despite having received injuries from a motor vehicle accident that would have put me in the hospital toughed it out to not only attend his daughters wedding, but also to perform a dance routine I wouldn’t be able to reproduce on my best day, now that is MOTIVATING!

    This was another nice surprise, I didn’t even know you could get personalized matchbooks, very nice touch! I know now that in addition to her other talents if we ever need an event planner i’m calling Charity first thing!

    My parents always told me money doesn’t grow on trees, I always believed them too until I went to Charities wedding and discovered the awful truth!

    Now no one has ever referred to me as “normal” but I think I have stepped off the deep end with this cupcake wedding cake. I was initially hesitant to try them, but Charities mother assured me that they would be the best thing I have ever put in my mouth, so I decided to put that claim to the test. They were made from scratch hazelnut chocolate and I thought I may have died and went to have the cupcakes of the Gods on Mt Olympus. Ever since then i’ve developed quite the obsession with them, I think about them before going to sleep and have found myself staring at this picture for long periods of time…..wait…what exactly was I typing about again?


    Dave and Charity, may the years ahead of you be filled with love and lasting joy.  Congratulations to a couple whose match truly seems to be perfect for each other.
