A Peek at Portrait Folios

A box of folios arrived here in the studio from our lab and even though they include some surprises for some special people, we just couldn’t resist showing you how lovely they are!  Folios are quickly becoming a favorite display product around here since they do a great job pairing two images together to stand on their own inside a silk and mat folder.  They are self contained, don’t require assembly or framing, and you just want to touch them!  Stay tuned to our instagram – @alantephotography – to see the full image once the surprise has been revealed to the recipients!

A Winter Engagement Session in Seattle

If you can brave the chill, Winter in Seattle rewards you with some of the most beautiful light of the year to photograph in.  Ben and Marquinta met up with us in January {in that GORGEOUS green dress!} to run around in the city and vamp for the camera.  Here’s a look at their session!  We’re counting the days until their wedding with our dear colleagues, the coordination team Valley and Co!

Matt and Nolan’s Wedding at Four Seasons Seattle

Picked up the latest copy of Seattle Metropolitan Bride and Groom and turned to the back page?  If so, you’ve seen the cute mugs of Henry and Oliver – the French Bulldogs rescued by our wonderful grooms, Matt and Nolan.  These two created a swanky and refined wedding day and pioneered the first outdoor rooftop cocktail reception at the Four Seasons Hotel.  All the while, they found ways to fold in their pups – The furry ring bearers who are apt to give love to EVERYONE were slowed coming down by the aisle by Matt’s niece dropping goldfish instead of flower petals.  The party just grew and grew through the evening as the toasts brought up classic childhood stories and even a show and tell of an old cub scout uniform.  Perhaps the most jaw dropping was the surprise for everyone when a core group of friends busted out a dance that was straight out of boy band choreography.  It was the BEST!!!  Enjoy a look at the day below :)

Weddings in Woodinville 2015 – Citrus Countryside at Woodinville Whiskey Co

Our clients, Mallory and Brian were in attendance

Every year, hundreds of people attend one of the most unique wedding shows in the Northwest, Weddings in Woodinville.  It’s singular in that venues across Woodinville {ahem, wine and whiskey!} come together to create a circuit.  At each venue, a coordinator leads up a team of vendors that transform the venue into wedding perfection.  It’s a perfect chance to not only see what the venue looks like set for a wedding, but to really feature the talents of each member of that team.  It’s an accurate reflection of their real world skills all served up along with fantastic catering and beverages throughout the day as you shuttle from one location to the next.  It’s no surprise that it sells out consistently!

This year, we were invited to be the featured photographer on the team at Woodinville Whiskey Co as led by Holly Patton of Perfectly Posh Events.  Her design concept was a lush and lovely, Citrus Countryside theme.  Together with the team, they transformed Woodinville Whiskey Co’s upstairs event space so that it echoed the wine regions of Europe.  Butter & Bloom created the perfect florals for the concept integrating refined elements of brass candlesticks that absolutely sang on top of the Seattle Farm Tables.  SongBird Paperie set the

tone of the event with their cheery invitations washed in citrus tones and even creating a subtle logo of citrus that carried through to the announcement chalkboard.  Anchoring the tablescape was a beautiful macaron tower from The SweetSide.  Additional elements completed the look from Vintage Ambiance, ABC Special Event Rentals, and the full team listed below!

Coordination and Design – Perfectly Posh Events /  Venue – Woodinville Whiskey Co /  Catering – Hollywood Tavern /  Florals – Butter & Bloom /  Stationery –  Songbird Paperie /  Sweets – The SweetSide /  Long Wedding Tables – Seattle Farm Tables /  Vintage Props – Vintage Ambiance /  Rentals – ABC Special Event Rentals /  Linens – BBJ Linens /  Lighting – GreenLight Events /  Entertainment – Harold Belskus /  Wine – Alexendria Nicole

As if the design of Citrus Countryside wasn’t beautiful enough in the light, bright, and airy Winter day we had, at about 2pm, a stream of sunlight beamed in and created the most romantic and {I think} Renaissance style mood amongst the lush florals and deep wood tones.  We just adore this set of images and hope you do, too!

Colorful Ballerina Pictures Around Seattle

Sophia’s ballet shoot across Seattle was full of surprises as an arts festival full of interactive displays greeted us in Pioneer Square.  Instead of running from the crowds, Sophia dazzled them and we’re sure she’s on tons of cell phones now as people were fascinated!  Enjoy!
