Valentines Day Wedding Photography and St. Valentine

What’s not to love about Valentines Day: candy, flowers, jewelry, stuffed animals, a lovely romantic dinner for two at a restaurant, a couples romantic weekend getaway, champagne, a wedding engagement proposal, and a Valentine’s Day wedding! Did you know the history of St. Valentine is open for interpretation. The holiday, from ancient Rome, is the festival of Lupercalia. Stories about St. Valentine vary from saying a priest took many wives against the Catholic Church and indulged in gratification and orgies; or Saint Valentine defied the emperors wishes and secretly married couples; and Cupid, the Roman God of Love and hearts is the heart of emotion. Whatever stories you choose to believe, today, on February 14, around the world, people celebrate Valentines Day with the one you love. Here is romantic wedding photography from a Valentines Day wedding!

Got Engaged in 2019! YAY!!! Sweet Engagement and Wedding Photography Ideas for You!

One of the things I love about being a Puget Sound wedding photographer is I get to work with couples on their engagement photos and their wedding photos. It’s great to get to know each other before the wedding. Building a fun and trusted relationship with your photographer guarantees that you will have pictures that really show the love you have for each other and your pictures will be naturally beautiful.

It’s great to have your engagement photography session outside, in a park, incorporating flowers, the seashore, mountains, and woodlands. The beautiful, natural settings of the Pacific Northwest provide a bonus for all engaged couples.

Amanda Marie and Matt Godsey's Rustic Wedding at the Jacob Smith House

Two hearts united on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at the civil war-era farm manor house, the Jacob Smith House, in Lacey, Washington. The happy couple were surrounded by family and friends.

The bride’s family and friends flew in from Connecticut for the wedding celebration — joined by Matt’s family and friends from Washington. Their day couldn’t have been more perfect with delightful autumn skies and lots of love.

Their nuptials started with a beautiful and romantic First Look pictures.

Followed by their First Look kiss. So sweet!

Amanda and Matt said their wedding vows under an arbor with rose petals.

With just the right touch of color for the autumn leaves and trees; and, the historic Jacob Smith House for their backdrop…the setting could not have been more romantic and ideal for their wedding photography.

Marry me...Autumn color and wedding themes for the perfect fall wedding

The colors of Autumn are breathtaking! I love shades of green, rose, purple, orange, pink and the warm tones they bring to a wedding and wedding reception.

There’s so many themes you can have at your wedding. These brides and grooms chose crystal and ostrich feathers, monsters and rich purple flowers, a vineyard, and Autumn leaves on their wedding cake. As a photojournalist wedding photographer, I love capturing all the details of the wedding season — whether it is Autumn, spring, summer or winter.

Autumn Weddings & Event Photography -- Apples, Falling Leaves, and Lace.

The last breath of summer and the early fall months of September and October are so warm and inviting! Engaged couples who choose to marry at this time of year can enjoy warm sunshine and cooler breezes. Romance is in the air!

The color of fall leaves, golden yellow roses, and rich burgundy, sage, and purple hues are delightful to photograph and are so romantic.

I love to photograph the wedding rings using symbols of the season -- how about rings on a red delicious apple tree?!

The couple and their families pitched in to plan the perfect wedding! It was outdoors, at sunset, with twinkle lights and lanterns. Maurean's sweet doggie was part of the ceremony too. They even had a slick Volkswagen bus for cozy, fun, glam camper shots. Their wedding had it all! 

With about 120 guests, a roasted suckling pig with all of the fix'ens, a DJ, yard games, and more, guests and the happy couple partied the night away under the stars!

The wedding ceremony was full of emotion and love. Everyone could feel the love that Dan and Maurean feel for one another.

Weddings are all about family and friends getting together to celebrate the joining of two hearts. Smiles and tears filled the air!

Cheers from the guests as the wedding ceremony was about to begin!

Using Props and Natures Surroundings Add to Beautiful Wedding Photography

Do you have a wedding theme for your special day? A lot of guys and gals do. Incorporating  fun and creative props at your wedding can really add another dimension to your keepsake wedding photos and wedding album. Also, working with natural surroundings, like we have here in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful for your pictures. Mother Nature does not let us down!

Wedding rings on the bridal bouquet is gorgeous and so romantic! This is one of my signature photos that I love to create for all of my couples.

How about a framed picture!? I love this a lot!! The wedding party and family did too!

Cheryl amd Emmett Hartley wedding

For this Victorian wedding the velvet sofa and handmade decorations using the brides favorite colors and style really set the tone for a very romantic wedding.

Nothing like a beautiful lake and greenery to make a pretty frame for a wedding portrait. Or, an umbrella! 

Nothing's off of the table when it comes to your wedding. Recently, I photographed a wedding held at a race track. The bride and groom incorporated his race car and they had black and white checked flags. Their wedding was uniquely their own and wonderful!

First Dance and Fun Wedding Reception Photography

Let the wedding reception party begin! It's so much fun for me to watch people at weddings let loose and have fun. Yeah, most brides and grooms are a little nervous on their BIG DAY, but once the corks start popping and they've already had their picture taken by the wedding photographer in dozens of scenarios, everyone is more relaxed and has BIG smiles on their faces.

I love taking pictures of people having a good time and not worrying about me taking their picture. It's those candid, spontaneous moments that tell the wedding story.

It's an honor for me to photograph your wedding. Let me tell your wedding day story. Booking now for 2019 and 2020 wedding photography and wedding reception photography.

February Weddings are Perfect for Rich Red Color!

Romantic red for weddings, valentines, and events
Love red roses for the bride and groom

For this beautiful wedding they kept things simple...and used romantic red accents for the bridal flowers, dresses, and the wedding cake.

The bridesmaids sip champagne and shine with BIG smiles as I photograph them in their beautiful red dresses. They've got the romantic Valentines wedding look and style for sure!

Modern bridal photography captures the joyful bride and groom as they walk hand-in-hand down the aisle. We did it!!!

Capturing Unposed, Candid, & Natural Wedding Photography -- Tells a Story

You know what I love about photographing weddings -- its the in the moment shots, super candid, spontaneous, and natural wedding photography that really captures and tells unforgettable moments.

Love is a great adverture wedding photography for the wedding co

I use a wide variety of lens; and, the best lens for wedding photography, in my humble opinion, are the 85m portrait lens, 24x70m great for portraits and group shots, 70 x 200m for shots taken in a church or further away, and the wide angle 16 x 35m. These are my favorites to catch every loving and fun moment! You never know...you might catch a guest taking a picture at the wedding of you and the couple! Love this!!
