I love a short commute to a wedding! It means I get to wake up late, have a good breakfast, and get to the venue with plenty of time. Don’t get me wrong, I love the variety of venues further away too! But every now and then, it’s nice to shoot in my hometown. One of the venues closest to me in Puyallup is The Historic Farmhouse 14. Being a consistent Historic Farmhouse 14 wedding photographer would be a dream!
When and where to do your engagement shoot
Brianna and Nick decided to do their engagement shoot only a month before their wedding. They wanted those beautiful golden hour vibes which meant we made time for their engagement shoot in the summer. There’s a lot to consider when choosing time of year for your engagement shoot. Do you want autumn leaves or snow or rain and fog, or those golden hour rays? Consider when your wedding date is and decide if you want something similar or different! Even if you want similar weather, maybe you want a different environment. Choosing your engagement shoot location is just as important, but don’t worry, I’m going to help you with all of it!
Being a Historic Farmhouse 14 wedding photographer means I know the spots!
After we were done with formal photos at Brianna and Nick’s wedding, we explored the venue. There are so many cool nooks and crannies for shots at their venue. And, we got to be a small crew with just the couple, my husband Nathan on video (see the film here https://youtu.be/apg2ElQbAvw) and myself, which made it easy for Brianna and Nick to be themselves.
They brought in boutique rentals for their which helped make the setting unique to them. It also allowed us to set up some different portrait shots. If you’re thinking about adding boutique rentals to your wedding, but are unsure, I can help you decide. You can do more than furniture as well, and it can help accent the beautiful florals, like the ones from this day by Pollen in Love.
Are you getting married in Puyallup? I'd love to chat with you about your wedding!
