"I’m elated to write a review for Salt and Pine photography, as this duo is simply amazing! We used Darryl Ann and Joe for our engagement session and wedding, and couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. From booking to receiving our full set of wedding photos, they were a complete joy to work with. Not only is their work INCREDIBLE, but they are simply amazing people to get to know too. They were beyond flexible with us when weather caused us problems, and you can tell they truly care about making sure you’re happy with the end result.) I could honestly go on for a while describing how pleased we were with their work, but to sum up..I learned through planning our wedding there are some vendors you just hope will even show up, and then there’s the vendors you don’t even have to worry about because you can trust them and the products they produce. Salt and Pine is the latter. Love you guys!" - JENA & TREVOR

"Choosing Salt and Pine as our photographers was one of the best decisions we made in wedding planning- and there are so many talented individuals in the Puget Sound area to choose from! Not only were they willing to document our event the WEEKEND BEFORE THEIR OWN WEDDING, but the resulting pictures were more than we ever could have hoped for. Multiple friends and family members have told us they've never seen anything like it! A few highlights of working with Darryl Ann and Joe: They are really well organized, always responsive to email, and use easy tools for questionnaires and invoicing. They are incredibly pleasant people who put you at ease and make what could be an awkward experience far more comfortable- not to mention they handle inclement weather like pros. They are also flexible with their individual package options- we were able to trade an adventure engagement session for an album and don't regret it for a second. As for the adventure part, they helped us strike a great balance between getting some beautiful outdoor shots and making sure that we didn't look like a hot mess from trekking all over Mount Rainier. Finally, as two ladies getting married Darryl Ann and Joe always made us feel welcome and accepted, didn't photograph us in gendered ways, and treated us like friends they'd known for years. We are so grateful they were part of our day." - ELLIE & KATIE

"Choosing Salt and Pine Photo to take our wedding pictures was by far the best decision we made for our wedding (I mean I love my new husband and all, but I still stand by my comment). Darryl Ann & Joe truly make you feel like your natural selves, but somehow make you look 100000x better than you do in real life! Really, our family thought the photos were taken using some magic, everyone looked so incredible. Working with them felt like working with our close friends and we had a ton of fun in the process! They are such warm and accommodating people who also help direct you in the nicest way so that you look your best! They really take the time to get to know you and your style, if you have any special preferences, a certain style or shot you like, certain guests to focus on, special places you want to take photos at, etc. We highly recommend doing an Adventure shoot as well if you can because those pictures were truly SPECTACULAR. The beautiful way that Darryl Ann & Joe captured us with the nature around us was really fantastic and we still receive non-stop compliments on those (well, really all of our) pictures! They also have an incredible way of capturing true candid, natural emotion which is probably my favorite element of all of the pictures. I cannot put into words how much I love these photographers and their work, you just need to look at their gallery to feel what I am talking about! You will absolutely not regret hiring them! Just make sure to do it early so they are available" - MICHELLE & TIMUR

"Would 100% give Salt and Pine as many stars as they'd let us. Darryl Ann and Joe are so incredible. From the very beginning they were absolute professionals: they were quick and friendly with their communications; they take the time and effort to really get to know you before your event; they coached us through how to pose for our photos; their dual vision enabled them to capture great portraits as well as candid shots, close ups as well as landscapes, active as well as reactive shots: they captured it all. On our wedding day they were so calm and capable we couldn't help but feel a bit calmer ourselves. They required very little guidance and with only a couple instructions were able to seemingly be everywhere but without being disruptive to the moment. Then they edited and gave access to some highlights days after our wedding, created a stunning and evocative slideshow and finished loading and editing all of our photos in under 4 weeks time. We simply could not have been happier that we chose Salt and Pine to document our most special day." - EVA & JARED

"We can't say enough great things about Darryl Ann and Joe. They are both so talented, and wonderful people to boot! Our wedding took place in a rather remote location in the mountains. The day that Darryl Ann and Joe were scheduled to arrive, all of their flights got cancelled and they couldn't re-book a flight to make it to the wedding in time. So what did they do? They got in the car and drove 18 hours to arrive in time for our rehearsal dinner. This is just one example of the measures they take to make everything perfect for your wedding day! Also - LGBTQ+ couples, Darryl Ann and Joe were so thoughtful and respectful, and just the best possible photographers that a gay couple like us could ask for. We highly recommend them!" - BLAKE & BRAD

"At our very first meeting with Darryl Ann and Joe, we knew they were exactly what we were searching for. They showed us their portfolio and talked with us and we were hooked! The best thing about working with these two is that they check in throughout the planning process, giving you tips and making sure we didn’t have any unanswered questions. They are so personable and professional at the same time. Words can not express how much they helped on our wedding day. They seamlessly dealt with our crazy family members and made us feel so comfortable. My husband and I hate having our pictures taken, but with them it didn’t feel awkward. They were so stealthy the entire day that I didn’t notice where they were at! They got so many amazing pictures throughout the day and I literally don’t remember seeing them in the spot where the picture was taken! That’s how stealthy they are! They were so wonderful at capturing intimate moments with us and our families. And they were so quick with getting our pictures to us! I already have a bunch framed and hanging on our walls. I couldn’t find a single picture that I didn’t absolutely love. To sum it up, Salt and Pine is the best, if you want to have amazing wedding pictures, hire them ASAP! They’re worth every penny!" - NATALIE & ROBERT

"Salt & Pine was easily the best choice I made in wedding planning. It took a bit of searching, and speaking with other photographers, before I came across Darryl Ann and Joe. Right after scrolling through their website, I knew I wanted to work with them -- they are pet-friendly, they have very unique package options, and their portfolio is amazing! As anticipated, working with Salt & Pine was wonderful and we absolutely ADORE our pictures!! Communicating with Darryl Ann and Joe is very easy, they worked seamlessly with our other vendors, and had answers to all our questions (even on the day-of, amidst the craziness)! For those newer to the area, they can recommend fantastic locations, and will make you feel comfortable in any setting. After the big day, our guests had nothing but great things to say about Darryl Ann and Joe. Our wedding had approx. 50 ppl, and many guests felt they were part of the family. We did not hire a videographer, and with the quality/quantity of photos we ended up with, there was absolutely no regret! The other amazing part of working with Salt & Pine...the turnaround time was extremely quick! Our wedding was the beginning of Nov and we shared the photos with our family by Thanksgiving!" - MARISA & NICK

"Salt & Pine is AMAZING! They are the sweetest couple and so great to work with. After a bad experience with another photographer we hired them for our wedding. They could not have been more fantastic. They are so helpful with making the process fun and less awkward, because let's be honest, no one wants to pose romantically for hours. They captured all the perfect moments and really made the photos come alive. I can't stop raving about them to all my friends and family and I am so excited to use them in the future for all my photography needs! They take the time to get to know their clients and it really shows in their work. Thank you for capturing my perfect wedding day!" - HAYLEY & RAY

"Salt and Pine Photography was the best choice we could have made throughout our entire wedding experience. They were timely, communicative, and extremely professional (even with our large and crazy bridal party). I'm recommending them to everyone I know because we were that happy with our photos and experience. 10/10 would book again" - CHRISTINE & TONY

"If you are looking for a photographer, look no further. Darryl Ann and Joe take care of all the logistics from start to finish. They are what I’d call the “dream team.” I’m a “type A” person and like to do all my research, and before deciding on a photographer for our wedding I did just that, creating a spreadsheet to compare many different photographers in the area. So if you’re like me, just read and scrap the spreadsheets! These two impressed us from the start and we immediately felt we could trust Darryl Ann and Joe with capturing this most important day. I love that even the small details don’t elude them. They listened to our priorities and customized our experience to fit. When we went on our engagement “adventure session” last winter, they knew the best locations for a great shot and even offered a map of their favorite places around Washington. Again, the “type A” in me found this very helpful! They even notified us of inclement weather and were flexible enough to adjust the schedule when snow prevented our initial session. They made us feel so comfortable and by our wedding day, it was like we had good friends present who blended right in and celebrated alongside us. They think about what’s important for couples on their wedding day and put a lot of heart and time into what they do. Nothing ever goes exactly to schedule on your wedding day, and they are very intentional about making sure the stress doesn’t reach the bride and groom. They helped create a sense of calm even when I know they had a lot to accomplish with less time than expected pre-wedding due to hair & makeup. They also made sure to coordinate with our vendors and understand “day of” essentials. They are involved every step of the way, whether it be check-ins, questionnaires, video calls or email communication. Our photos reflected the thought and expertise of these two, and we’re so happy we decided to go with Salt & Pine. Speaking of the photos, they’re incredible! They have a way at finding the light and each precious moment. Also, you receive an album after your wedding which is something few photographers offer – it’s like the cherry on top. If you’re looking for photographers who know their craft, are professional and can create a relationship that strengthens the whole experience, book these two right away before someone else does! You won’t regret it." - JULIA & JAMES

"We loved working with Darryl Ann and Joe!! They are amazing at capturing emotion in photos and making sure each photo is unique. They don't do too many posed photos, but instead focused more on having us move or laugh. We did an adventure engagement session in Mt Rainier which I strongly recommend for anyone looking for something different than the typical engagement photos. Additionally, they were fantastic at working with our schedules. As a fourth year medical student, my schedule was constantly changing and out of my control. Darryl Ann and Joe were totally understanding and went above and beyond to make our availability work. We recommend them to all our friends getting married in the area, and would book them again in a heartbeat." - ANNE & CHRIS

"Darryl Ann and Joe, you captured our special day so well, I cried watching the slide show. All the emotions I had on our wedding came rushing back as I saw it play out. The whole set of pictures from that day, tells our story of happily ever after. Thank you! You both made us feel so comfortable, that we must of forgotten your presence at times. That or you two move like ninjas." - SUMMER & JASON

"We did an adventure session with Darryl Ann and Joe and have hired them for our wedding as well. They're very personable, easy to work with, and were accommodating to the requests we had for our shoot. Don't expect heavy photo editing - one of the things we love so much about them is that the photos look very natural and are not overly processed with filters and effects. They are talented photographers who know their cameras, so the photos speak for themselves. We have been incredibly happy with the photos they took for us and are stoked to work with them again next summer!!" - KATIE & JOHN

"Darryl Ann and Joe did an absolutely wonderful job capturing our elopement. They even (very willingly) battled rain and very high tide for us, and yes most of us got hit with a huge wave at some point! They were so much fun to have be a part of our very important day. All of the pictures we got back are so much more than we could have ever hoped for. We got such a big variety and they were all edited beautifully. They captured all of our feelings throughout the day amazingly, I can’t look at the pictures without tearing up! I would one hundred percent recommend Salt and Pine!" - NADIA & JOE

"Darryl Ann & Joe are such great photographers to work with. We did an engagement shoot with them first and the pictures turned out wonderful. We got to know them even better during our wedding and again, had a great time. Aside from their incredible photography skills, they’re light hearted, fun loving and just an all around pleasure to spend time with. My husband hates photos and by the wedding, he was feeling more comfortable with it. Another perk with Salt & Pine is getting two photographers. That way, not a single moment is missed. After the wedding they sent us an adorable photo box with a few of our wedding photos printed and a usb drive, it was an exceptional touch. They really went above and beyond. We are currently working on finishing our photo album with them and after looking over the rough draft, it will be remarkable. It has been such a pleasure getting to know them and we look forward to sharing more important moments with them." - MOLLY & MIKE

"We could not have asked for better photographers! We wanted people who geeked out over the technology but just as importantly, had passion for the art. And of course we needed positive, laid-back people we would like to be around for our engagement session and wedding! Darryl Ann and Joe were outstanding every step of the way. Professionals with utmost attention to detail and on top of communication, we always knew we were in good hands. They made the engagement session fun and our wedding didn’t feel like a photo session. They captured our friends and family, the emotions of the day, and even advised on ancillary details. We love the photo album they made - it’s like a book of our day and anytime we want to relive it from start to finish we have only to open it. Darryl Ann and Joe whisked us away for pictures in the rain and that was the most magical part for us. Thank you for such incredible memories!" - RIANA & CONNOR

"I honestly cannot say enough good things about Darryl Ann and Joe, the photographers behind Salt and Pine. They are SO INCREDIBLY AMAZING in all regards - from the most spectacular photographers to incredibly friendly, kind, and professional people. From the minute we saw their photos on their website, my now-spouse and I knew that we had to have them as our photographers. From the very start of contacting them, they were the most wonderful people to work with. Organized, friendly, SUPER helpful, clearly extremely competent. A lot of things about planning a wedding can be stressful, but working with Darryl Ann and Joe was NEVER stressful - in fact, other than actually getting married, it was the thing I enjoyed most about our wedding (I'm not kidding). We loved getting to do an engagement photo session with them, and while my fiancé and I thought we'd feel awkward, Darryl Ann and Joe did such a great job on guiding us through the whole process and the photos turned out amazingly. And the photos from our wedding... just stunning. Words can't describe. Just look at all the pictures on their website and you will understand! They were also super flexible on the day of the wedding adjusting to changed plans due to rain, etc., and when we told them we were still going to have the ceremony outside even in a light sprinkle, they were not fazed at all. It was also fantastic to have two photographers (at what seemed like a pretty competitive price for two people!) AND - as if there was not enough, they provide all their couples a bunch of fantastic resources about how to plan well for photography during your wedding day, how to set up a wedding day timeline, etc. - this information was so helpful and so appreciated. In summary, I recommend working with Darryl Ann and Joe wholeheartedly. Not only did they capture our wedding in the most beautiful way possible, they were AMAZING people to work with. I recommend them 1000%." - ALISON & SEAN

"Darryl Ann and Joe are amazing wedding photographers. They were punctual, polite, thoughtful, and went above and beyond in their work. They were easy to talk to and communicate with even though we lived out of state and we felt like we knew them when they showed up for the wedding. They were wonderful at getting the feel for our wedding and what we liked for photography. They worked very well together and ran the photo shoots efficiently and professionally. Darryl Ann and Joe are two of the nicest people and they are so accommodating. They helped us stay on time with the itinerary while still getting all the photos we wanted. They were especially great at capturing outdoor settings (they hiked almost two miles for the shots we wanted). I feel like we got to know them the most out of our wedding vendors and we would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. They also got our photos back much more quickly than other photographers quoted. Our photos turned out incredibly and many of my friends have told me they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen. My wedding photos still make me cry and I can't thank Darryl Ann and Joe enough for capturing our wedding day!" - MARIAH & STEFFEN

"We love Salt & Pine Photography!!! Darryl Ann and Joe were SO great to work with!! I have followed them on social media for a long time and knew when we got engaged I wanted them to be our photographers. They have stunning images and capture couples so well and also do it in a very nature oriented way. Our engagement photos turned out great and we love them!! We had a few meetings throughout the wedding planning process to get on the same page and they always went so smoothly. The wedding day was great! They showed up early to the salon and took pictures while we got hair and make up done. Then were at the hotel taking pictures getting ready. Darryl Ann even drove me to the first look to see my husband!! I knew the area I wanted to have pictures done and they scouted the area early to see where would be the best photos. They were great in directing us in our couple photos and in the bigger group pictures. They were great at the ceremony and reception as well! They were always around to take a picture if we wanted and were snapping all night long while we danced and visited with our family and friends. We have seen a few photos that we already LOVE so much and can't wait to see the rest of them! My family has a history of not liking their wedding photos (mom & dad, brother & sister in law), but we are not one of them!!! We are so happy we chose Salt & Pine for our photographers!!" - ASHLEY & MATT

"We worked with Darryl Ann and Joe for our engagement session and wedding and to say they were amazing would be an understatement. They were so incredible to work with and they went above and beyond to make everything leading up and that day perfect. Anyone can hire a vendor for their big day, but when we hired Salt and Pine they instantly became friends. Hands down, no question asked, I would use them over and over again if I could." - KRISTI & JOSH
