Brett and Lindsay *bellingham family photographer*

I learned an important lesson while shooting Brett and Lindsay: Never schedule a photo-shoot during a Seahawks game!! I should have known better to have a football schedule on my desk. When I worked as a realtor's assistant, I kept a list of games taped on the inside of my desk, so I wouldn't schedule open houses during Seahawks games--now I know. When I told Brett and Lindsay to meet me at the cemetery, I think they thought I was crazy, but the warm evening light is so nice there, and we were in an area with out, um, graves. Brett and Lindsay are expecting their first child in April of 2009, and during the shoot I kept joking that "they just needed get pregnant." This was a couple weeks before I knew they actually were. I'm excited for your new baby, and I'm going to love photographing him/her too... I know you haven't asked me to yet, but I'm just going to do it anyways! Enjoy your photos my friends, I had a great time with the both of you!

Cheers,

Jeff and Vicki Wedding *bellingham wedding photographer*

Jeff and Vicki were married at the beautiful Bellingham Golf and Country Club. The day welcomed us with rain, but we kicked it inside, warm and cozy! Vicki was classy and relaxed, and Jeff was really relaxed too, and l know why! :) Can't say on here, but if you get a chance to talk to him, he'll share the details! I also had the pleasure of taking my good friend Chris Frerichs with me to help shoot the wedding. Chris actually did our family portraits a couple years ago so it was fun to work with him from the other side of the camera. The ceremony was beautiful. Jeff and Vicki wrote vows to each other, and when Jeff started to read his, I couldn't help but laugh! He, somehow, in the most eloquent way, had taken lyrics from popular songs to express his love to Vicki. It was amazing. The crowed was in hysterics laughing one minute, then the tenderness at the end had us all crying, even Jeff. They were the best vows I've ever heard, "I'm forever yours---faithfully," Jeff said to Vicki (taken from a Journey song). So even though the rain poured harder than it had in months, it didn't hinder anyone's spirit, love, or especially dancing abilities!! And wow, can I say there was some amazing dancing! Jeff and Vicki, it was so much fun to be a part of your wedding day! Enjoy your photos!

Cheers,
jewels
