July 3rd. Chicago, IL. Never been to a Greek wedding before. Everyone should be Greek.

They know how to celebrate.

Whose up for a little mind blowing announcement?!?! OK… so it’s not mind blowing. But we think it’s pretty freaking rad.

Friends, meet the HOTEL PHOTEL.

HOTEL PHOTEL, meet your new friends.

If you’re a client whose wedding is coming up in the near future and you want to add a little pizzazz to your reception (or if your just lookin’ for some blackmail on grandma to keep in your pocket for a later date)… then look no further. (seriously… hit us up and we’ll get you more info)

It’s like a photo booth without the sweaty small talking box.

Our first couple to feature the HOTEL PHOTEL was Howard+Allison whose wedding was also at Novelty Hill/Januik winery in Woodinville.

Howard+Allison are THE MOST awesome couple. 😉 For reals. We really, really like them.

We’re 30+ shoots backed up right now on this good ol’ blog. That’s about to change.

Everyday (biz day that is) I’ll be blogging. At least until we give some snippets of all of the weddings we’ve shot so far this summer.

Let the party begin my friends. Let it begin.

It’s gonna be a riot.

There is so much that we can say about this amazing couple. We had the privilege of finally meeting the two of them this last week for their session, and it was a beautiful time indeed.

Andrew+Tesmer both work for the U.N. in Tanzania. Let me just say this…

Hearts. Of. Gold.

They’ve given their lives to fight aids, feed the hungry, and love those who need it most. They are world travelers who smile, laugh, care and love in a capacity rare in this world.

We are deeply blessed to have met them. And are as equally as blessed to be capturing the new adventure of their lives as they become one.

Cheers to that. And cheers to these two lovely people.
