I am the pine; the backbone. I’m mild mannered and optimistic. I’m a nerd, gadget guru, and tinkerer. I feel most complete in the fall watching football and enjoying the crisp cool air with a bite of anything pumpkin. Nature is my first love, and one of the strongest forces in my life.
I’m the salt; the spice of life. I’m quirky, creative, and outgoing. Adventures are second nature to me. I love hiking, local food, coffee, sweaters, hockey and visiting new places. I’m a Mainer to the core and you’ll hear me proudly using the word wicked as an adverb.
I’m a super sweet pup, once I get to know you. Before we are friends though, prepare to be barked at! When I’m not lounging around the house, I’m wrestling with Sophie or exploring the backyard. Most of the time, you can find me laying at Joe’s feet while he edits.
I’m a very energetic Collie/Terrier mix. I enjoy mandatory 7am cuddle time, only playing with toys that squeak, and digging to China in the backyard. I can be a little crazy, but, I am also really smart, and super friendly. I love to sit on Darryl Ann’s lap and “help” her do work in the office.
The story of Salt & Pine began in a small coffee shop in the college town of Manhattan, Kansas. Joe was looking for an assistant for a few summer weddings. Darryl Ann was new in town. We spent a lot of time getting to know each other the next few months, and shot our first wedding together on our one month anniversary. At the end of that first year, we took a trip to Seattle and knew it was where we belonged. Our name changed to Salt & Pine, a brand that represents our personalities, relationship, and our love of shooting weddings together, as a team. We moved into our little log cabin last July, and started officially calling Washington home. Our lives are full of little adventures, in the woods, on top of mountains, and along the coast, usually with 8 furry paws in tow. In March, Joe popped the question on the top of Rattlesnake Ledge, and we’ll be achieving husband and wife status in the fall of 2017. That’s our love story, we’d love to hear yours!
Everything you could ever want in your photographers. Professional, responsible, and to top it all off, Joe and Darryl Ann are the BEST at what they do! I told my wife during our first dance that I could relive this day a million times over, and after seeing the wedding photos they delivered...I can. You two transformed our perfect day into a perfect and immortal memory! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Joe and Darryl Ann are amazing at what they do. Not only do they communicate very well during a stressful time, they take the time to learn what you want to make sure you get exactly what you want. They were there all day and stayed throughout the reception. Both are so professional and captured some amazing shots of us, even though my husband isn't always the best at smiling. I am so thankful I chose honest, patient, and creative people and would definitely recommend them to all of my friends.
I absolutely loved our engagement session. Darryl Ann and Joe were so amazing. They made us feel so at ease and had such great ideas for photos! I wish that they had our wedding date available, I've never enjoyed getting my picture taken as much as I did with them. I would recommend them to everyone!
We loved working with Joe and Darryl Ann so much!!! They were fun, creative and so easy to work with for our wedding. I've worked with a few different photographers in my life and none have compared to these two. They make you feel comfortable and relaxed, and I don't think we could say enough good things about them and the overall experience. The best part is the results are fantastic and something we will have for the rest of our lives!! Thank you for the wonderful work you do!!
Joe and Darryl Ann are incredible people who are incredibly talented! After our first meeting with them my now-husband and I knew we wanted them to be our wedding photographers. They are so relaxed and fun and they bring it out in everyone else! There's nothing worse than looking at a photograph and seeing forced smiles, and not a single one of our pictures turned out that way! They captured every special moment perfectly and naturally.
Joe and Darryl Ann are fantastic! They are funny, energetic, and easy going. Our engagement photos turned out great!! We get tons of compliments on them. We are absolutely in love with them! On top of all of that they were quick to get the pictures back. We just had our wedding and can not wait to see those pictures. Everyone is still raving over how fun the photo booth was!
Joe and Darryl Ann are SO AMAZING!!! I had my wedding in Telluride, Colorado. They traveled 12 hours to shoot the most amazing pictures I have ever seen in my life and I'm so happy that those amazing pictures are of my wedding! Not only are they amazingly talented photographers but they are also amazing people. I felt so comfortable being around them and the more time I spent with them I began to think of them as friends, not just my wedding photographers. They made every picture perfect and went the extra mile - 774 miles to be exact. Thank you guys so much!!!!
Our pictures turned out phenomenal! Joe and Darryl Ann are seriously the nicest people and they capture every special moment. We have had so many people compliment us on our photos and say that they are some of the best pictures they've ever seen. You will not be disappointed, and if you choose another photographer, you are missing out!
Joe and Darryl Ann are amazing photographers. They are fun and hip and do beautiful work. They are also very easy to get a hold of whether it is through Facebook, email and even text. Trust me, they don't mind playing "20 questions" with an anxious bride! I highly recommend them if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding!
Choosing Salt & Pine as my wedding photographers was the best decision I made in wedding planning. They were helpful in every aspect of the process. They not only helped keep my planning on track but met with me several times before our wedding day to mess with smaller details and work out wedding day scheduling. They were extremely flexible to work with and went with the flow of my very large wedding. There were also AMAZING with the small children in my wedding party. I am so glad that hiring them meant we had two photographers that day. I would HIGHLY recommend them to any couple!
Where do I begin!? From the initial meeting at a coffee shop, to our engagement photos where we ventured to secluded areas, to our amazingly blessed and perfect wedding day, Joe and Darryl Ann were perfect to my husband Wilson and I. The questionnaire we filled out to submit to them noted that we wanted to see the love of our families and the warmth of the event through the pictures and they captured that and more. I can honestly and genuinely say that this was the best decision for us. Our families loved them, our friends enjoyed them being around, and we feel every penny spent was well worth it.
Joe and Darryl Ann are very creative individuals, which shows through the images they capture. They are very polite and professional, and made my husband and I feel super comfortable in front of the camera. One of my favorite things about their work was the attention to detail. You experience quite an array of emotions on your wedding day, some of which may only last a few seconds, but they captured them! And beautifully.
These two were so fun to work with! Two photographers are definitely better than one. They helped take the stress away from the wedding day by their relaxed, fun, calm, outgoing attitudes and you can see how well they work together to create amazing photos! We were so impressed with the unexpected extra time we had on our wedding day because of their promptness and planning ahead of time. We received many compliments on our wedding photos and would recommend them to anyone! My husband and I loved working with you, Joe and Darryl Ann!
Working with Salt and Pine on our wedding day was a great decision. Not only did they take stunning photos to help us remember our special day, they took all of the stress and worry away from the decision making and shot choices. Joe and Darryl Ann made everyone feel comfortable and helped to direct us to make sure our wedding was captured just as we wanted. I can't imagine our wedding without them. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
"What amazes me the most about Salt and Pine is that their friendliness and authenticity are more spectacular than their phenomenal photographs. They genuinely want the best for their clients, their friends and especially their fellow photographers. Individually, Darryl Ann and Joe are incredibly talented, but as Salt and Pine, their combined knowledge enables them to flourish. Darryl Ann and Joe are disarming educators, business savants and photography experts. I highly respect their opinions as I have often sought out their advice and insight to improve my own business. You can and should trust them with your photography journey!"
"A year ago, I contact Joe and Darryl Ann to help rebrand my photography business. After throwing some ideas around, Joe and Darryl Ann were able to see the style and direction that I was hoping to achieve. Darryl Ann’s gorgeous hand-lettering paired with Joe’s brand awareness was perfect. I was presented a branding board that I fell in love with! After rebranding, it was time to tackle the website! Joe is pretty much a website building warrior. And while that was happening, Darryl Ann schooled me on the in’s and out’s of blogging! After officially launching the wesbite, it took about 7 weeks to make it to page 1 on Google for my desired keyword, and just a few (very few) blogs later, I have held the #1 spot on Google for over 6 months! The phenomenal search engine placement has been a blessing for my business and bookings have increased by 54% -- Needless to say, I loved working with Joe and Darryl Ann and wouldn’t hesitate to refer them!"
"Darryl Ann and Joe have been an absolute pleasure to work with! We felt our team expand the moment we started working with them. They jumped right onboard with our vision and walked along with us get to where we wanted. We feel encouraged and equipped with something new each time we talk with them. This investment into our business was just as important (if not more so) than any other investment we’ve made. We couldn’t have done our rebrand and new site launch without them! These two are a deep deep well of vast knowledge, we can’t take notes fast enough when they talk. They truly believe in making the photo community better, and for that we are so thankful!"
