We joined Rachel and Tom for their wedding a couple of weeks back at Kensington Gardens, a wedding venue that just opened in Gig Harbor last year. It was fun for us to explore a new spot, and the building is beautiful! We were especially impressed with the balcony, which made it possible for us to get these great portraits of the two of them. The three photos below are also a great example of how we can work together — one on the inside of the building, one on the outside — to get a full range of looks in just a short amount of time.

Rachel and Tom are dog lovers, like us, and had a great idea for their reception: donating to the local humane society on behalf of their guests instead of buying individual favors. To tell guests about the generous donation, they hung cards on each chair featuring various photos from their fun engagement shoot with us this spring, which included their two adorable boxers.

The inside of Kensington Gardens is just as classy as the outside, with a large ballroom perfect for both a romantic first dance and the festive burst of group dancing that followed.

Rachel, Tom and friends put a shout-out to a friend who is currently serving in Iraq and couldn’t make it to the wedding. Rachel herself served two tours in Iraq, so I’m sure she knows how much a thoughtful and fun photo from home can mean!

Congrats Rachel and Tom!

    Hi Laura,
    It has been a long time since you have been at Kensington Gardens. When I give tours I show a photo album of weddings at KG with two purposes. One, so the bride has an idea of how the grounds photograph and two, to showcase potential photographers. If you will send hardcopy photos and include us on your website I will be glad to include your work in my tours.
    I hope everything is going well and have a great day.

    Hi Kelly, good to hear from you again! I printed about a dozen of our favorite photos and will be sending them off to you soon. We’d love to photograph more weddings at your beautiful venue!
