It’s hard to not love Paris, n’est-ce pas? Kayla and Bastien are obviously both affectionate and photogenic, and were as delightful as Paris itself.
Garrett’s favorite photos from 2012, taken by either Garrett or Jill Gibbons for Aderyn Productions.
Jill and I are both dancers (we met and danced together as partners on a touring dance company before we dated), and we love working with dancers. Here are a few of my favorites from a recent ballet photography session with Madison Abeo at the Seattle Art Museum Olympic Sculpture Park near the Seattle waterfront.

Ara & Casey’s wedding at the Monte Cristo Ballroom was a fairytale princess event that enchanted us. Michael from Lucid Captures was a wonderful photographer to work with, and the Monte Cristo staff provided 5-star service throughout the evening. Ara was regal and graceful and Casey seemed very smitten with love for his beautiful bride. Congratulations, Ara & Casey!
Joyce and Arif’s wedding reflected a beautiful multicultural background including Chinese, Indian and Western elements. Joyce wore no fewer than thee beautiful wedding dresses (a white Western gown, a red sari and a Xi Pao), and their first dance broke into a choreographed Bhangra routine featuring the other members of the wedding party.
The wedding vendor team worked amazingly well together. Liana Woo at Modern Seattle Weddings handled the event without creating stress for the rest of us. Siang and his assistant photographer from Lightphoria took gorgeous photos and was a pleasure to work with as always. Marc from Integral DJs was professional, friendly and amazingly good at his craft. The staff members at the beautiful Semiahmoo Resort were relaxed and helpful throughout the day.
Garrett filmed this wedding announcement video last week for Carlos and Techy in Miami, FL and Naples, FL. Their wedding is in Lima, Peru in September and we’re excited to be the photographers and videographers at their gala event. ¡Felicitaciones Carlos y Techy! Son una pareja sumamente cariñosa.
(I must add that Spanish love songs are much more romantic than anything I hear in English!)

Sarah and Andy were amazing. Jill and I have been astonished at how many wonderful couples we’ve been blessed to work. We are so grateful for each couple who we’ve worked with during the last few years, as wedding photographers and videographers in Seattle.
Sarah and Andy were married at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish, WA. Nickel Images did the photography and were awesome to work with. Pat at A Heavenly Ceremony facilitated a beautiful, touching ceremony,and Valerie at A Vibrant Wedding worked her tush off to make sure everything went smoothly.
The song in this trailer was specifically requested by Sarah, and was also the song for their first dance. We’re often asked: “How do you pick the music in your wedding trailers?” The short answer is: we don’t really pick the music. The longer answer is: when a couple doesn’t have a specific song in mind, we make a decision from their list of favorite music to be used in the full-length wedding film, based on the feel of the day, the tone of the footage, and how we feel the couple’s personalities are best represented through music.
I always get nervous before a wedding, just because I know that I could completely ruin everything if I’m not 100%. The morning of a wedding day is the worst; usually I feel more confident as the day goes on and the footage turns out, but the morning is the worst.
Sarah and her bridesmaids were getting ready while watching Bride Wars at her mom’s house. Jill and I quietly started setting up our cameras and support gear when Sarah told me that she’s been looking forward to her wedding video more than anything else about her wedding. No pressure or anything. If my fear of messing everything up at a wedding is normally at level 100, I was suddenly over 9,000. Her expression of excitement was very sweet, however, and gradually sank in as a very encouraging thought. I hope that Sarah enjoys the trailer and the full-length wedding film to come!
Britany & Mike were married on May 27 at Trophy Lake Golf and Casting in Port Orchard, WA.
Congratulations, you two!
Hey, this is Jill! Garrett usually does most of the blog posts, but I wanted to share a few photos that I did this week of this sweet newborn. He is so little and sweet! It’s hard to believe that my boys were this small, once. Without further ado, here are a few of my favorites.
I did a short session with this little sweetheart in his home, so he’d have all the things he’s used to and hopefully be as happy as possible. He was a real trooper and kindly consented to being photographed, and I’m so glad he did! He has such an expressive face! He’s inherited some amazing eyebrows. Welcome to the world, little one!
