We're Kat and Justin, the husband-and-wife team behind Persimmon Images. We're best friends, hiking partners, and aspiring world-travelers. He's a whiz in the kitchen, a rock climber, and an oncological nurse practitioner. She's a gardener, a long-distance cyclist, a meditating Buddhist, and a former Wedding Bee blogger. We're crazy, we're adventurous, and we collect new experiences like some people hoard cats.
We believe in photography that captures who you are and how you love each other. Nothing forced, nothing fake, and nothing cheesy (unless it's funny-ironic-intentional cheesy). We think you deserve photographers who "get" you and, not only that, photographers who can capture your affection and joy, and all the funny quirks of the person you fell in love with so that you can always appreciate each other when you see the gorgeous images we make together. We pride ourselves on handmade, heartfelt documentary photography and portraiture with an artistic eye.
To us, weddings are about the birth of a new family and regardless of sexual orientation, age, or ethnicity, our goal is to document the momentousness of this great event in living color. We don't think weddings fit neatly into hourly chunks of photography, so when we're there for your wedding, we're really THERE: To photograph the entire day, to celebrate alongside you, and to make sure you get to enjoy your own party with picture-perfect proof that you did, to boot.
Life isn't “One Size Fits All” and neither are you. Your wedding shouldn't be limited by tradition (though feel free to start one yourselves!), but be a custom-tailored, heartfelt expression of love … and a kickass party to boot. We want to be there every step of the way. Drive to Montana and down miles of dirt road to photograph a wedding? We've done that. Hike a mile up a muddy mountain trail to capture a handfasting? That too. Snap a standing-room-only ceremony in a dark bar with a Blues Brothers groom and retro rock-n-roll bride? Yup. Shoot a ren-faire costume ceremony that wedded an elf bride to a kingly groom, complete with a sword fight and pig roast? Yuuuuuup. We’re down for just about anything.
Our studio, Persimmon Images, is based in Washington state but we'll travel anywhere and climb on anything for that one amazing shot. We work with no more than 15 couples each year to give each of you one unforgettable experience and the highest quality of service. We are proud to call our clients our friends, and we hope to count you among them.
You're different? We're different. Let's show the world how awesome different can be.
