Ashlee & Chris | Engagement Portraits Photography in Wenatchee wedding photography

What a fun evening. I’ll be photographing Ashlee and Chris’s wedding in May next year. Recently we met down in Wenatchee for a causal engagement session. We roamed around the downtown area and into the Riverfront park for one cool scene after another. Ashlee and Chris were great and the result of our little walk were some very natural portraits of a couple, simply being in Love.

A little story of me messing up though. I’m not great with names, but I know that’s not an acceptable excuse, so I’ve been forcing myself to improve. Well not today. We had been working for about twenty minutes, when I realized I had been calling Ashlee, Jessica. Oh ya, not even close. Jessica was a bride I had met with earlier that day. Newbee careless mistake. Ashlee took it well though and since then I’ve used her real name. She will defiantly be known as Ashlee from now on.

Engagement sessions are something I include for no extra charge with my weddings. Their great way to get better acquainted with my couples, get some great photographs and get them relaxed in front of the lens. By the time the wedding rolls around, I want them to be able to ignore the fact that the camera is nearby and just enjoy their day. After the session my wife and I went out to a photographers meet up in Leavenworth, ending a great evening with good food and colleagues. Here’s some favorites from A&C’s collection. Your comments welcome… Gav

Fusion slideshow for Kelly & Steele’s Moses Lake Wedding.

I just posted Kelly & Steele’s wedding. I also made them one of my new Fusion sideshows to put on DVD. It’s the highlights of their wedding photos set to music, with little video clips from their day mixed in. I’m a photographer, not a videographer. But I love grabbing little tidbits of video throughout the day to bring my DVD presentations to life. These are a new experiment for me and so far people seem to love them… Gav

This was a neat wedding and I wanted to post it sooner. Kelly & Steele have been super busy however, so I held off so they could have some time to review. You may recall that I posted Kelly & Steel’s e-session a few months back (you can see it here). I was looking forward to the big day at Hidden Meadow. It’s this great venue outside of Moses Lake, but ironically this was my time there, so I was eager to take it on.

I was there early, even before the couple. That was OK because it gave me a chance to scope out the landscape. And what a beautiful landscape it was. It really is a hidden meadow. I’m driving down this gravel road in the Central WA desert thinking “this is a wedding venue”, when all the sudden there it was. Acres and acres or perfectly groomed oasis ready for a party.

The day went really well, as did the resulting photos. After the beautiful ceremony on the main lawn, we went right into a huge party with lots of good food and LOTS of dancing, including live music by Foolish Fortune. They did a really great job.

I love a real, non staged capture of the bouquet toss. Along with many other favorites, I think the Kelly’s bouquet (see below) is my all time favorite toss photo. It just really nailed the feeling. There’s so many I like though and it was hard to narrow them down for the album I designed for Kelly & Steele. You peek at their wedding album below, as well as a few other faves. Check out the links above for the complete collection as well as one of my new Fusion Slideshows of their day. Congratulations Kelly & Steele…. Gav

Gavin’s Fusion Video for Jayme & Brandon | Wenatchchee Wedding Photography

I just posted Jayme & Brandon’s awesome wedding album. This is the Fusion slideshow. Put simply, it’s the highlights of their wedding photos set to music. The twist is that is has little video clips mixed in, bringing it to life. I’m not a wedding videographer. But I love what I was able to do to this story by adding a little bit of video.

Jayme & Brandon actually didn’t know I was making this, as it was a new offering for me. I just silently grabbed clips throughout the day, made this up, then surprised them when they came to the studio. We actually made a video of their reaction. Needless to say this is something I’m offering couples going forward. While it does not take away from a beautiful album or a wall portrait, it’s a great way to share the highlights of your day of a very memorable way… Gav

Jayme, Brandon and their family were great. This is one of those weddings that was a lot of work, but a real pleasure. From early morning to late evening and even a trash the dress session the following week. Jayme & Brandon were into it and that makes amazing things happen. This was one of those projects that makes me love my job because the couple was so in

It seemed we were all over the Wenatchee Valley taking photos (including the crazy cool wakeboard images on the river). The ceremony was at Highlander Golf Club, which was incredible. For a light fanatic like myself, it’s hard to beat the sweeping sunset view of the valley that we had from Highlander during the ceremony and reception.

Jayme & Brandon have 68 pages of memories in their album to go along with a stunning 36in canvas of the image above. I also surprised them with my new Fusion slideshow. I won’t explain it here, but if you know Jayme & Brandon well, you’ve probably already heard about it. You can see it as well the complete proof gallery via the links above. You can also order prints from the proof gallery. Here’s a slideshow of the printed album Jayme & Brandon will be receiving, as well as a few random favorites. Enjoy. I know I did.
