Best Federal Way Wedding Photographer

Nov

15

When I first received the email that I had been nominated and won “Best Federal Way Wedding Photographer 2019” I was a little bummed. You see, in 2016 and 2017 I had a photography studio in Federal Way. I knew these awards were for small businesses operating out of a specific city. We no longer operate the studio out of Federal Way.

I sent a letter to the council and let them know I still conduct business in Federal Way often, but am legally registered in Edgewood, Washington now. I thought they would take the award back once they found out.

After reading my email they confirmed that I am indeed keeping the awarded status!

Now that it is officially official, I am so proud of this award. I worked my BUTT off in that Federal Way Studio. My career life was committed to this business in January 2017 when I purchased my “four figure” ring sitting on that studio floor.

I remember all the late winter nights I spent sitting by an electric fire place with my laptop until 2:00am.

I remember signing my contract to be a Federal Way business the day before thanksgiving in 2016 and itching to be there through the holiday. All of the newborns I shot in that studio, the cutest couple on Christmas Eve. The tears over my first online attack. The pride in so many “best gallery yet”!! moments.

My pipe dream became a career in Federal Way, Washington.

I still shoot in Federal Way often. In-fact, I just photographed an elopement there last weekend! A BIG BIG thank you to whomever nominated the studio. I didn’t even know we had been entered.

Tacoma/Seattle…we’re coming for you next. 😉

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
