GROOMSMEN & WEDDINGS – THE SWEET SPOT | FIRSTLIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY

As wedding photographers we would by lying if we didn’t say we love working with our grooms.  Dare we say they are never running behind due to a salon delay?  We seem to get extra time with them on the big day and this is where the magic happens.  There is nothing more awesome that the squirrel-y nature of a pack of men preparing for (and celebrating) a wedding.

One of our favorite calls was from a groom that wanted to stage a pic for his wedding album.  “Can you be in our room in a few minutes?”  Well, heck yeah.  We traveled to Eastern WA for this wedding so we had some extra time on our hands and were booked at the same hotel room.  The clock was set right before the ceremony was to begin and the debauchery of the moment was caught on film.

2014 will be filled with many more new grooms and their rat packs.  Often times cool or nerdy cool but always genuine – and always having fun.  As the husband and wife duo behind Firstlight Photography we just can’t get enough of our wedding dudes.  Here is to an adventure filled 2014 wedding season!

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY REGISTRY BY FIRSTLIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY

Do you really need a butter dish?
When we first started our wedding photography business we got the idea to create a wedding photography registry.  Many of our couples already have two toasters and had shared their struggles with the whole wedding registry process.  Everyone felt awkward asking for money but they all liked the idea of getting help funding wedding elements.

We knew couples that registered for their honeymoon and it got us thinking about our own registry.  We asked a few couples if a wedding photography registry would be helpful.  Since the beginning of our business this has been one of our most popular features.

Why register for photography?
A wedding registry is an excellent way to get your wedding photography package paid for by your friends and family.  You can add the elements you want to your big day and you can add on upgrades like a boudoir shoot or an album with a metal cover and additional pages.  Simply put it offers more flexibility with your overall wedding budget.

And how exactly does it work? 
With your invites and when people ask where you are registered you can provide them our contact information.  Your guests can contact us and we will send them an invoice for their contribution towards your package.  If they wish to remain confidential until the wedding we won’t let you know who has contributed. As gifts are added to your registry we notify you of your shrinking photography package balance.

Our couples love the option of a wedding photography registry.

Seattle Wedding Photography – the Engagement Shoot on Location

David and Kristen wanted an engagement shoot that would feature a Seattle City scape so we figured what better place than Gas Works Park.

On location shots provide a rich backdrop for engagement portraits.  Kristen and David were really relaxed on this day and they just went for it.

The park was crowded on this sunny day, but everyone was very helpful and we can’t tell you how many bicyclists and joggers paused to stay out of shots.  In addition, many stopped and watched from a distance.  With all of the equipment and lights it looked like David and Kristen were the celebrity couple of the day.

Most Firstlight Photography packages include an engagement session.  These sessions are great ice breakers that allow us to get to know our couples on a different level.  It really helps put everyone at ease on the big day.
