Puyallup Wedding Photographer | Wedding Vendor Love {Firstlight Photography}

We love what we do and feel so fortunate that we have met amazing wedding vendors over the years. We just got a referral from Annemarie Juhlian, an amazing nondenominational officiant serving the Puget Sound and beyond region.

Last year we ended up doing three weddings with her (which is alot with just one officiant).  We realized our clients were similar and we loved working together.  She does a great job of getting to know the couple and crafting a very specialized service.  She basically makes Mitzi wife tear up every single time.  She is thoughtful and it shines through.

We are fortunate to get to work with her on many elopements.  She started an amazing site called Elope Seattle Style.  She guides couples through all the ropes for a Puget Sound elopement.

Children’s Portrait Session Gone Mad


Working with kids is fun and unpredictable.  Making a child’s shoot special is key.  Being able to be the center of attention is what most kids are after and on the day of their shoot we like to give them the rock star treatment.  For studio shoots we like to make sure we play the kids’ favorite bands in the background.  It helps to break the ice and also inspires some interesting poses.

To keep kids engaged during a shoot, we like to take a breather and just let the kids go crazy.  It makes for better smiles and allows them to express themselves as only kids can do.
