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

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.

Jayme & Brandon… The Album.

Wenatchee Wedding Photography – Wakeboarding Trash the Dress:

Wenatchee Wedding Photography   Wakeboarding Trash the Dress: wedding photography

Last night we went down to Wenatchee and headed to the river with Jayme and Brandon (I posted a sneak peak on their wedding last week). We took this wedding dress and cut it off at the knees, giving it a cropped jaggy look. This was for two reasons. First, it was looked really good. Second, a full dress gets really heavy when wet and Jayme needed to be able to move in the water. Justin took the helm and I hung off the back with the gear getting the action.

Afterwords we found a place on the shore and get some sexy romantic images before walking back to the launch. Both Jayme and Brandon were troopers. While it all looks cozy, the river water is cold right now and the wind was blowing a bit. They were great and as a result will have a bunch of amazing photos to add to their wedding collection. I’m totally thrilled with the results. Here’s a few favorite, but stay tune for more when the whole wedding posts… Gav

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing an awesome wedding for Jayme & Brandon. It was at the Highlander Golf Club in East Wenatchee and was a beautiful day. I work pretty often in the Wenatchee area and there’s always lots of potential. Wait till you see the views we had from the Highlander. Stunning. We even made it out on the Columbia River for some boating and Wakesurfing. I have some neat goodies in store for this wedding so stay tuned. Here’s just a couple teaser photo’s, but there’s lots more coming soon… Gav
