I love facebook and its many connections to my friends now and from the past.  I just watched a video of Raw Corn busking in the Pike Place Market.  I know Ronn, singer and guitar player extraordinaire, from my early college days when I worked at his record store – for those of you too young to realize this,  there used to be stores that sold vinyl and cassette tapes!

I decided I needed to see and hear more than the one video so I googled Raw Corn and found their myspace page.   You can also find Raw Corn on facebook.

It isn’t too often you find a duo that rocks their acoustic set with just a guitar and accordion but Raw Corn is more fun than I can handle on this Sunday morning.  I can’t imagine a song these two couldn’t play.  One of my favorites is “Blitzkrieg Bop” originally done by the Ramones.  I love the remake and its polka-esque vibe.  It is a good romp.  I also like their version of Elvis Costello’s “Peace Love and Understanding” and found myself thinking that these guys need to blog. 

Being in the wedding business I have met some fabulous business owners.  I know right away those that I hope to work with at a wedding.  I must say that doing a wedding with these guys would be spectacular.  We tend to attract fun and vibrant couples and I just have to imagine that Raw Corn would be the perfect duo for one of our upcoming weddings.  Not only are they experienced musicians, they are comedians as well.  This is not your typical wedding band.

Check them out and let us know what you think!  I would love an excuse to work with these two.

I see the Monkee’s hit “I’m a Believer” as a top wedding must have.

About Firstlight Photography

Kier is from Orange County and Mitzi is from just outside Chicago. We both moved to Seattle in June of 1995- but it took until 2006 for us to actually meet. We saw the same concerts and we both had the same Capitol Hill sushi haunt but it took over 10 years for our paths to finally cross. When they did we had no idea that our careers would collide into a fabulous partnership. We share a common love of music and photography. Kier caught the photo bug years ago and Mitzi always had a love of art and a mind for business. When we aren’t out on a photo shoot you can find us roller skating with our kids, hosting Martha Stewart eat your heart out dinners (Kier is the chef & Mitzi is the baker), watching movies -we share a love of “Strange Brew” (which should be slightly embarrassing, but we own it), or doing DIY projects with our insanely crafty kiddos. We are located between Seattle and Tacoma any frequently travel throughout Washington, Oregon and California. You can book us for your destination wedding or event and we will give you a reasonable travel quote (our passports are ready). Life is good and we work hard to convey this in our work. There is nothing more rewarding that receiving a note from a client’s mother thanking us for doing a great job on her daughter’s wedding photos. Call us and we will do a phone consultation or meet over coffee to talk about your photography needs, answer questions and, if we are a good fit, we can devise a variety of package options.
