About Persimmon Images

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.

Kat and Justin is a wife and husband team who shoot gorgeous wedding photos. Their photos are bright and airy with just the right amount of warmth. Their photos don't look overly edited or instantgram-like capturing our wedding day the way we thought it turned out -beautiful, magical and fun! Kat is the lead photographer and all my correspondence was with her. She's quick to response to emails, easy to work with and pays attention to detail. Justin works full time but from what I understand is almost always the second photographer if he can work it into his schedule in advance. Justin does nice detail out of the box shots that compliments the collection of photos that Kat takes. During the photo viewing session in their home they'll bring out wine, excellent coffee and some delicious snacks which is a nice treat. As mentioned before they're both a super friendly couple and made the whole photo taking process easy and fun.

Strengths: Bright and natural photos, works easily with couples, kids, family, guest and big groups.
Room for improvement: Film, detail shots

We had a great experience with Persimmon Images. Kat and Justin were delightful to work with, and we love the resulting photos. Kat was always quick to respond and helpful with my questions, and communicated very well throughout the whole process. Our wedding guests loved them too -great entertainment value, and they got some truly stellar shots that captured the day.
