Brandon and Dawn Hildebrand
Our 2nd shooter, Frances, is nice enough to take a second out of her busy shooting time at all of our events to sneak a few photos of us. Here are a few.
1. There’s Brandon on the top of a stone tower on Mt. Moran on Orcas Island. He looks like Rapunzel, huh?
We were dressed more casual than usual since it was an engagement shoot. The tower was once home to a guy who looked out for forest fires from his tall roost. It’s not at all cozy but for sure beautiful. We had lots of fun bouncing dramatic lighting off the stone walls inside to create dramatic images of Adri and Nick. I can’t wait to share those photos on our blog!
2. Mount Baker in the background. Brandon doing off camera lighting over my head while I’m shooting a photo of Adri and Nick in front of the tower. Destination weddings are so much fun with all the new sights and gorgeous views, great adventures!
3. A crazy group of ladies having loads of fun at Colette’s bachelorette party in a park in downtown Tacoma. This was their interpretation of a sun and Colette was at the center in the fetal position laughing so hard she could hardly stand up afterwards.
4 & 5. Brandon and I shooting Colette and Ravi’s wedding in Tacoma. This mural is on the back wall of a Buddhist Temple, so artistic and colorful!
6. Me at Adri and Nick’s reception. I do not remember this photo happening. I’m sure I was tricked into it. Frances probably said, “let me test my levels, smile!”
