Kathleen & John’s Adventure | A Moab National Park Engagement Session in Devil’s Garden

After we planned a two-day stop in Moab on our WPPI road trip, we knew we needed to find a couple for an engagement session while we were in town. Cue one of our amazing brides putting us in touch with Kathleen and John, and their Moab National Park engagement session was on! Kathleen and John drove down from Salt Lake City to meet us in Moab, one of their favorite areas to adventure, and where they are planning their summer wedding. To capture the essence of the beautiful landscape around Moab, we took the two (and their pup, Ollie, who gives LOTS of kisses!) out to Devil’s Garden in Arches National Park for the session. It was so different and inspiring to shoot in the desert. The red rock monuments as a backdrop are a far cry from the tall grass prairie in Kansas, and the forests and mountains of Washington! Kathleen and John were so much fun to have in front of our cameras, and totally willing to climb on any rock we pointed out. Thanks for being willing to jump in front of our cameras on such short notice, guys! We had a blast meeting you, and Ollie!

2016 Adventure Tour | Seattle and Destination Wedding Photographers

Adventure Wedding Photographers Seattle Maine Kansas and Destination

Seattle & Destination Wedding Photographers 2016 Adventure Tour

We are Seattle and destination wedding photographers who frequent Oregon, Colorado, Kansas (Joe’s home state), Missouri, Maine (Darryl Ann’s home state), and the rest of New England for weddings each year. We feel so lucky as wedding photographers that we are able to travel all across the country making connections and photographing some of the best days of our couples’ lives. We’re already booking 2016 weddings, and our year looks like it will be full of travels! Since we’ll be all over the place, we thought a list of our 2016 travels would be handy to help you find out where we are. We like to call it the Adventure Tour! If we’re in your area, most likely we’re photographing a wedding or visiting a National Park (it is our goal to visit all of them in North America in our lifetime). Usually if you catch us soon enough, we have availability for a cup of coffee, an engagement session, an elopement, and sometimes a wedding while we’re in town. If you don’t see your state on this list, we are probably dying to visit it, and we’d love to have an adventure telling your love story. Whether it is near or far, on a mountain or in the water, engagement or wedding – get in touch! We have plenty more 2016 dates open, and we’d love to add more states to our list. Shooting weddings in Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, Michigan, California and New York are on the top of our bucket list! Drop us a line here and tell us your story, we’d love to hear it. -Salt & Pine

Rustic Weston Red Barn Farm Wedding | Seattle Wedding Photographers

We’ve been big fans of Amanda and Jimmy since their engagement session early this spring, and we were so excited for their Weston Red Barn Farm Wedding. The Weston Red Barn Farm has been on our bucket list of venues and we are so glad to have had the opportunity to shoot there before moving to Seattle!  From the second we pulled into the driveway, we were greeted by rustic hand painted signs dictating the events of the day, and a plethora of simple rustic details. Glass milk bottles holding flowers lined the tables along with wooden D’s decorated in multiple ways. (When I commented on the milk bottles, Amanda told me they drank A LOT of local milk leading up to their wedding day. Gotta love that dedication!) One of the many reasons we’re big fans of these two is that they are so genuinely expressive with each other. If two people were ever meant to be together, it is definitely these two. As a testament to how in tune with each other they are – they chose to exchange gifts during their first look and unknowingly gave each other sunglasses from the same company!

 

Amanda and Jimmy’s ceremony took place in the middle of the apple orchard at the Red Barn Farm, which was perfect for their August wedding since the trees were heavy with ripe apples. Immediately after their ceremony, Amanda, Jimmy and their bridal party loaded onto a hay ride around the farm, and the back corner of the orchard made a romantic spot for the freshly weds bridal portraits. On top of everything amazing about Amanda and Jimmy’s wedding day, the reception brought the barn down late into the evening.

 

Amanda and Jimmy, thank you so much for entrusting us with your engagement photos, wedding day and photo booth! We can’t wait for your day after session in a couple weeks!

Mountaintop Telluride Colorado Wedding | Colorado Wedding Photographers

Shyann and Yurik are two of the coolest people on the planet. When they contacted us to shoot their Telluride Colorado wedding, we were so thrilled to be able to be shooting a wedding on a mountaintop in one of our favorite states (and our first “official” destination wedding!) Little did we know we’d make two friends in the process, and go on an amazing two day adventure with these two in the Colorado mountains! Instead of a usual engagement session or day after session, Shyann and Yurik brought us downhill mountain biking the day before their wedding. We had a blast on the trails with them, photographing one of their favorite things to do together. You’ll never find these two too far away from each other, or an adventure. Yurik even proposed to Shyann inside a cave they discovered together on a hike in the mountains. For two people who love the mountains almost as much as they love each other, a wedding on top of a mountain was a nobrainer for them – they even set the date for their 8-year dating anniversary (cue Awwww…). Shyann and Yurik had their ceremony at the San Sophia Overlook, close to 11,000 feet in elevation, and overlooking the mountains surrounding the town of Telluride. From Shyann’s unique wedding gown, to the flowers she arranged herself, to the location, to the love story, everything was amazing, and we can’t believe we were lucky enough to have been put in contact with these two!

 

Shyann and Yurik, thanks for being awesome! We’re so glad to have gained two friends (and a new appreciation for downhill mountain biking)!

Telluride Engagement Session | Seattle Wedding Photographers

We loved this short and sweet Telluride engagement session with Shyann and Yurik. It is not very often that as photographers we get to spend the day before a wedding with our couples.  With Shyann and Yurik though we were there for everything from downhill mountain biking the morning before the wedding to the rehearsal dinner that night.  Since this was our first time photographing these two we took the opportunity to take them out 15 minutes before sunset after their rehearsal dinner and shoot what can only be described as the worlds shortest and most belated engagement session.  It turned out amazing, the light was perfect, and the location was gorgeous (you wouldn’t know by looking but we were behind a ski lodge next to a parking lot).  Everything went so well in fact that Shyann and Yurik agreed to ride the gondola with us to the top of the mountain again that night and make some photo magic with sparklers on the eve of their wedding.  Opportunities like these are only possible when we shoot destination weddings, and for Shyann and Yurik it meant they had much more than just wedding photos.

Telluride Wedding Day One | Colorado Wedding Photographers

It’s hard to believe just last week we were in Colorado for Shyann and Yurik’s Telluride wedding at the San Sophia Overlook! I know everyone is anxious to see what we captured on their wedding day, but for now, we thought we’d give you a look into the fun we had with Shyann, Yurik, and a few of their friends the day before the wedding. Shyann and Yurik are downhill mountain bikers, and although Telluride might be well known as a popular ski destination, these two prefer it in the warmer months, when the biking trails are open. The bike resort made a special exception to allow Joe and I inside the bike park to photograph Shyann and Yurik doing what they love; descending precarious, steep, narrow, rocky trails on bicycles at speeds upwards of 30mph. And they do it with ease. And even make it look fun! We had a blast watching and being able to capture their runs down the mountain, setting ourselves up near interesting obstacles and vantage points in the trail. We even took a short break halfway down the mountain for a few shots of Shyann and Yurik, and a group shot of everyone with their bikes! Shyann and Yurik biked the afternoon away until their rehearsal dinner, after which we stole them for some sunset photos, since we weren’t able to shoot an engagement session with them. After dark, we even took the gondola back up the mountain for some shots overlooking Mountain Village. It is always an awesome experience to be a part of a wedding day, but to be able to spend two days with a bride and groom, their family and their friends? We couldn’t be luckier.

Grand Teton National Park Engagement Session | Jackson Hole Wyoming Wedding Photographers

Joe and I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to photograph this Grand Teton National Park engagement session on our trip to Yellowstone National Park in June. We knew, since we’d be visiting such a picturesque and unique location, that we’d be kicking ourselves if we didn’t find just one couple to photograph on our trip. So, we set out to find a needle in a haystack – one couple in the Jackson, Wyoming area who would be available on a specific night during our trip. We were so trilled when Brittany and Will reached out to us! Brittany’s singular request was that we highlight the Teton mountains during the session, so we chose to have our picnic on Antelope Flats, near the famous barn on Mormon Row. The sunset over the Teton Mountains that night was unlike anything else. A simple picnic in Grand Teton National Park couldn’t have been a better backdrop for these two – who enjoy adventures together in the outdoors as much as Joe and I do.

River Market Event Place Wedding | Kansas City Wedding Photographers

There was nothing not to love about Amanda and Ben’s River Market Event Place wedding. From the mismatched bridesmaids dresses, to the airstream lounge, to the dinner stations. You could tell Amanda and Ben put so much thought into making their wedding day all about them, and fun for their guests.  Ben’s breath was taken away by how beautiful Amanda looked during their first look, and then he took our breath away when he turned to us and asked “Seriously, how gorgeous is she?” It was an amazing moment to capture. Their wedding day was one of those where you feel connected to all the friendship, love, and family they are surrounded by, even though you barely know anyone there. Amanda and Ben read hand-written vows to one another, and lit a lamp together with oil their parents poured – a unique take on the unity candle we’ve never seen before. The River Market Event Place is a unique venue for many reasons, but one of our favorite features was the birds eye view the balcony allows us to capture of Amanda and Ben’s ceremony and reception. Seeing Ben and Amanda’s guests faces as they are announced as Mr. and Mrs. Myers for the first time is a view not many brides and grooms get! I love seeing the whistles, the clapping, all the happy smiles, and the picture-takers. All in all, this wedding day was full of too many amazing moments to have time to mention, so I’ll just leave you to browse through the hundred or so photos that make up this blog post. That’s what they’re supposed to be for, after all.
