Whenever we work with Tonie of Tonie Christine Photography we ALWAYS have a blast!!! This girl just fits in with us so well. When she reached out about her Blaze with Tonie Christine commercial we were so down with helping! We knew her vision and knew we could create some magic, while keeping the overall shoot very simple. And yes, this happened last year, but we haven't really shown it off on our blog (boooo on us), so we're finally doing that! BUT! We did show off the photos that came from the shoot, so be sure to check those out here.Read More
After a wedding or styled shoot, there are a couple of things we try to do. They're not always done immediately, but we strive to get them done in a timely manner, and one of those things is showing gratitude. This blog post feels super fitting since Thanksgiving just happened ;)
The gratefulness you show to vendors you love afterwards has an impact. Have you ever received a thank you card in the mail? How did it make you feel? The answer is probably somewhere around "pretty damn good!"Read More
Our good friend Tonie of Tonie Christine Photography hosts a one-day business intensive called Blaze with Tonie Christine that helps legitimize your business, teaches you valuable marketing skills, and helps get you more inquiries hitting your inbox. When she asked us to design and style the Blaze commercial shoot, we were PUMPED. Our little brother and his then-girlfriend (now they're married!) modeled for us in a simple but GORGEOUS shoot--it's actually one of our favorites to date.Read More

You might remember Cierra and Dan from our beautiful snowy elopement shoot a couple winters ago, and when they hired us to plan and design their HUGE wedding, we were more than ecstatic!

We hope you're singing Chris Brown's "These Hoes Ain't Loyal" right now! That's goal one of two for this post. Goal two, well for that you'll have to keep reading.
It's very common to have disagreements about the way someone is running their business, and that's okay, but how do you handle those disagreements when they could directly effect you and your business? Perhaps you're working with someone on a wedding, or a styled shoot, or you're partnering on a workshop or event. How can you turn those disagreements into positive forms of communication that help provide resolve, when you could so easily be resentful or overbearing?Read More
Oh friends, when we get to share pretty things on the blog, we jump for joy. And when we get to talk about personal subject, we get giddy. So, today, we're combining the two, and we're PUMPED! A few months ago, Ashley and Jerremy celebrated their three year anniversary and they knew they wanted to document this time in their lives, so they set up an anniversary shoot with Tonie of Tonie Christine Photography. And boy, are we glad they did!Read More
We talked about Blaze with Tonie Christine, the one-day business intensive put on by our friend Tonie at her home in Woodinville, and we shared about how that came to life here, but today, we're going to talk more about the design and details for the shoot, and then we're going to show off a talented photographer's photos from that day.Read More
A few months ago, I sat in Tonie's kitchen, talking about life, dreaming big, and working on squashing our fears. Tonie told me she had a dream to put on a workshop of some kind, but she knew she wanted it to focus on the back-end of a photography business--the marketing, the client experience, the website, the contracts. While there are so many incredible photography workshops nowadays, Tonie knew she wanted to set hers apart by focusing on her area of expertise: marketing and business management.Read More
Today we partnered with Tonie Christine Photography to talk about finding your perfect wedding photographer.
We believe that weddings are meant to celebrate two people, pledging their lives together. So the wedding planning, wedding day, and even after the wedding should all be an experience (and a good one at that!)--because afterall, YOLO, or YOMO rather (you're only married once)...fingers crossed! ;)
So this leads us to our topic...how to find a wedding photographer that's perfect for you, in two steps!Read More
A few weeks ago our friend (in real life and in the industry), Tonie, asked for a little creative design for something she was planning. Of course we jumped all on it. And you get to see a sneak today of the images, and then next week we will go full force!
