Your wedding photos could be a disaster if...

“All It takes to get good photos is a good camera…my cousin can do it, she just picked up a new camera from Costco”.png

Your wedding photos could be a disaster if your photographer doesn't carry backup gear.**

**The B. Jones Photography team ALWAYS carry's backup gear.

 

Here's a little behind the scenes into a few real weddings that could have RUINED my business.

I remember the exact moment my camera stopped working the first time— I was photographing the bridal party in a field of long grass in 95 degree weather. We had just started doing bridal party photos and I could tell everyone was uncomfortable standing in this itchy grass. But the lightening was perfect and they had just walked 5 min to the minute of this field at sunset because it would make the bride happy. Welp, 2 poses into the bridesmaid photos, my camera screen died and refused to power back on. I tried taking the battery out and in but nothing changed. Thankfully, I had a backup camera body in my gear bag. I told the bridal party that my second shooter would be taking over for a few minutes and sprinted the 5 min up the hill to the reception venue where my backup gear sat. I grabbed the backup camera, swapped my camera cards, abandoned my dead camera and windedly jogged back to the field to finish out portraits. The bride and groom were none the wiser and we were able to keep photographing their day thanks to my talented second shooter and my backup camera. 

 

I was sufficiently freaked out after this instance and promptly sent out my camera to be repaired and ordered a new camera body. 

 

Ironically, the following season, my camera body also died during bridesmaid photos. 😅 What the heck yo?! This time, I was prepared and had my backup camera body steps away from where we were shooting. We rolled on with the rest of the day and the couple still has no idea what went down. 

 

This time, I was able to get my camera body repaired by ended up having to rent a backup camera body for the 3 weddings I had booked for the following 9 days. (Ie: $$$$$)

 

Unfortunately, I’ve also been unlucky with lens.  About once a season, one of my lenses also seems to kick the bucket. Causes of death include: camera bag falling on concrete, kiddos pulling mommies camera off the kitchen counter and the worst of all— unknown causes. 

 

I’m going to get preachy for a hot second. A wedding cannot be ‘redone.’ Wedding photos are a once in a lifetime experience and a heirloom that lasts over a lifetime. It’s my job as a professional wedding photographer to safe guard every aspect of your wedding photos— which means carrying backup gear just in case. I’ve lost 2 cameras and 3 lenses over the course of 3 years. Most of these occurrences were during real weddings. It’s stressful folks but these occurrences won’t compromise my brides/grooms photos because I always carry backup gear. 

the best Waterfront Wedding Venues in the Seattle Area

If you live in the Seattle area, you're probably wanting to show off the best of what the PNW has to offer. As a PNW native, this means getting married near the water with epic views from the ceremony & reception sites.

When I was planning my own wedding, I scoured the web to create a list of all the waterfront wedding venues, then I compared them and figured out which one suited my budget and gave off the vibe I was going for. I wanted a venue that provided catering, had waterviews from the ceremony & reception, and felt like a getaway for my guests but was still close to my hometown. I chose the charming Semiahmoo Resort.

Anyhooo, I digress. For all my brides looking for the perfect waterfront venue, I put together a comprehensive list of some of the best in the greater Seattle area. I've also added some pertinent information about each to make it easier to narrow it down to your favorite! Enjoy!

Chrissy & Nick's Classic Winery Wedding

Karma Vineyards | Lake Chelan

This wedding was the culmination to an amazing summer wedding season and the stuff of dreams. A ceremony tucked into the hillside with panoramic views of Lake Chelan then a private exchanging of vows in Karma vineyards wine cave. Followed by dinner & champagne toasts nestled among the grape vines and ending the night with a kickin' dance party in a wine cave. 

As we were driving up to the ceremony spot in a vintage rolls royce, Chrissy confided that during their rehearsal as she was walking down the aisle to join Nick she thought, "Oh my god, I'm Bella." If you've seen pictures of our handsome groom Nick, you'll totally get it. He's as dashing as Edward Cullen but Nick's far more fashionable.

Brittany & Jordan's Whale Watching Wedding on San Juan Island

Brittany reached out to me TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO after finding me on instagram. We shared a mutual love of the San Juan Islands and salty sea breezes. Fast forward a year and a half and I got to explore & show off my favorite parts of Orcas Island for their adventure engagement session. We hiked, played under a waterfall, drank local beer, indulged in island sourced ice cream and popped champagne in a canoe. It was a DREAM. Check out their engagement session here

On their wedding day, I walked onto the San Juan Island ferry bound for Friday Harbor and KNEW I was in for a once in a life time experience. Brittany & Jordan chose to share their love of whales with their guests by tying the knot mid-charter with San Juan Safaris. Jordan proposed to Brittany on a whale watching charter the last time they were on the islands and knew that any other venue wouldn't do. During the final planning meeting, the following exchange occurred: 

Captain: So what’s more important during your charter? The ceremony or seeing whales?

Brittany: I’ve loved whales for 23 yrs and I’ve only loved Jordan for 7

Well the whales DELIVERED! It felt as if that pod of Orcas must have known it was a special day because they pulled out Sea World worthy tricks. Scroll down to see their big moves! <3 After an amazing 'performance' by our resident pod, (#whalesonweddingday), we puttered over to Lime Kiln Park. There is the prettiest piece of rocky coast line accented with the lighthouse that houses whale observatory files. For the couple that LOVES whale watching, I couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect day. ENJOY!
