Tattoo artists love nothing more than for a client to love the work, return for every tattoo need, and refer clients to them. Photographers are the same way and I have one such couple. I started out doing just Shawn and Erica's engagement photos, with no availability to shoot their wedding and they had another photographer that was probably going to do it. Things however changed, I ended up having the availability and got to shoot their fairy tale wedding (it seriously had disney influences and was so amazing). Erica and I have been panning her Trash The Dress photo shoot and during one of these times she joking mentioned that she should get a "frequent flyer" discount and a punch card. The deal is after five paid shoots the sixth one is free. What Erica doesn't know is, after our conversation, I ordered some punch cards. It's a really good way to build business and keep current clients. I think it's safe to say they are well on their way to a free session. Now lets talk about all the cute shoots that i've gotten to do for them so far.
Engagement: Again it was a rainy spring day, I don't know what it is with me and rainy spring days but I like them. We took their photos a Discovery Park and aside from the amazing view of the ocean, and other landscape Shaun and Erica used paint powder to add an extra element of fun. They are amazing!!
Their Wedding: They both love Disney, and some of their wedding had hints and things that reminded me of Tangled. It was held at a beautiful ballroom in Everett and they had a very funny and animated wedding party. We left the location to go to the local arboretum to take outdoor photos on the surprisingly sunny october day.
Family Photos: As a Mothers Day surprise Erica paid for family photos to be done of her and her siblings and spouses. Its was quite the family shoot with them all. We went to this cute park in Arlington that doesn't have a name or I'd tell it to you. Seriously though, if all family sessions were this fun people would get them done more often.
