About

$3,500 Most Popular Price

We take weddings very seriously. Which means we do everything we can to make sure our couples have the most stress-free, fun-filled day as possible. That allows us to get candid and honest moments of your day. We also think marriage should be a huge celebration with friends and family with a lot of great food, drinks, and maybe a slip and slide. If our work resonates with you then we would love to buy you a cup of coffee, beer, or martini (all of them at once?) and see how we can help!

Services Offered

We specialize in capturing the natural and unscripted moments at weddings. Our main mission is to allow couples to feel at ease - this means that we can document the candid smiles and the in-between moments. We don't like stiff, posed photos. We love it when couples squeeze each others' butts, whisper in each others' ears, and just have FUN together. We do everything we can to make sure you have a stress-free and amazing wedding day--whether that’s keeping a cold drink in your hand, finding you food, or telling Uncle Joe you guys need some space.

Pricing

For weddings happening in 2020 with all the early summer cancelations due to the virus, we are going to see even higher rates for venues booked for the summer. If you have your wedding during the week we can help you even more on the price. Great coverage starting at $2300! Please contact us as soon as possible 360-771-4693

    You can see the joy in the photos

    Peter recently posted photos from our wedding day to his blog and I can't stop staring at them. They fully capture the joy and happiness we felt on that day!

    My husband and I chose to go with Peter for a couple reasons. First, we loved the authentic colors he maintains in his edited photos. So many photographers these days are adjusting their photos to look more sepia-toned or like they have a filter on them -- or they boost the brightness up incredibly high or dramatically increase the shadows. Peter keeps his photography authentic. He says he tries to emulate photo journalism in his pictures. As a journalist myself, I'd say he does a great job at it.

    Also like a photojournalist, Peter works to capture real moments. Sure, there are the staged and posed pictures, but Peter also gets the laughter, the awe, and the emotion on people's faces.

    We are so pleased with his work and we've heard from so many of our guests that they loved interacting with him on our wedding day. We'd love to hire him again for any photo-worthy moment in our lives.

    Peter is amazing!

    Peter is amazing! From our first visit to our farewell on our wedding, Peter was so helpful. He is excellent at communicating and answering any questions that we had. Very clean and professional. I wanted to have a photographer that was good at what they do and Peter is just that. I love the photos. They look so natural and vibrate in color without being over the top. Our first visit he walked us through the process and prices. We told him what was important and what we really wanted pictures of, i.e, picture locations, gifts, and picture with family/bridal party. Peter listens and takes notes. His professionalism made us feel confident about choosing Peter. Day of the wedding he showed up early, checked in and got to work. I never noticed Peter or his assistant running around taking pictures. I honestly forgot they were there until it was time for bridal party. Peter is so easy to talk to and work with. He was great with the kids too! I was very impressed that he was able to coral 38 different family members for pictures. Peter has so many options to add on to the packages. We didn’t add any but I am going to later order the photo book.

    Fantastic experience

    Hiring Peter was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He was extremely flexible with rebookings through the pandemic. We initially booked Peter as we really got along with him after an initial meeting, and we're so happy we were able to work with him. Peter did an amazing job of keeping things fun and relieving stress in an otherwise very chaotic and stressful day. He had great timing to know when to pull us away from pictures. Even without the pictures I'd be glad he was part of our day! But his pictures are truly fantastic as well of course Ended up with a great mix of fun and formal pictures that all represented our personality and they day well. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
