Photography Feature: Style.ish !

Ever since stumbling across Seattle's own style.ish photography I have fallen completely in love. Their modern photo-journalistic style truly turns your moments and emotions into art with a uniqueness like no other. They have even been featured on and Destinations I Do Magazine!

LMV asked a few questions...

1. What’s your primary style? (Posed and formal, relaxed, photojournalistic, creative, artistic, candid, traditional?)
I like to say that we’re have a photojournalistic style with a modern twist. Meaning that we love to capture the moments as they happen especially during moments like getting ready and the walk down the aisle but we also love doing portraits that require a little more posing. For portraits we like to pose our couples in a way that doesn’t look posed. Not everyone is a natural born model and we find that people like direction when getting photographed. We tell them where to look, when to kiss, how to sit but the way that they react after they are posed, their head turn, their smile, their laugh, the look in the couples eyes when they look at each other is what we try to capture.

2. What are the reasons you think brides should hire you? What makes your photographs better or different than anybody else's?
The best thing about working with us is that we are a husband and wife team so you always get two photographers and between the two of us and our four cameras, we never miss a moment. We take a much more “stylish” approach to our photography. We are not just trying to capture the moments, we are trying to capture the moments in the most beautiful way we can. We get a lot of our inspiration not from wedding magazines or other wedding photographers but fashion spreads and ads. We are not trying to be anyone else and our style is definitely our style. The one thing I can say about our photography is that it’s not just images from our camera, they are extensions of what we feel in our hearts. Being a part of such an important day, we get caught up in all the emotions as well and when I am shooting, it’s me capturing what I am feeling from the moment and what I think the couple will want to remember from that moment.

3. Who is your most favorite photographer (not necessarily a wedding photographer)?
Tim Walker. Amazing fashion photographer.

4. Are there any new wedding photo trends that you have noticed?
Props! Everyone loves their props these days. I think it’s really cute when it has a connection with the couple. Beach brides love parasols which I do too! They always make for pretty photos.

5. What do you do the rest of the week, when you aren't shooting weddings?
I’m in Human Resources at an IT firm here in Seattle. It’s a great job but I love having a creative outlet with photography. My husband does photography full-time so when he’s not shooting weddings, he’s at the computer editing and perfecting things on the back end so that our clients get the best service at all times! We make sure that they are taken care of from start to finish. When we are not working most of our time is spent with our two mini dachshunds, taking them on long walks or just cuddling with them on the couch.

I tried to narrow down my favorite photos and it was nearly impossible! Here are a few, but check out the rest of their fabulous work at, and on facebook!

Thanks Tiffany and Jared!
