Cross Engagements and Wedding!

I had the pleasure of working with a fantastic couple on their engagement and wedding photos. We went up to the Husum Highlands B&B for their engagements, an old favorite of mine! Here are a few from the session:

Then just a couple weeks later I was introduced to an amazing venue, The Empress Estate, up in Woodland, Washington, about 25 minutes north of the Portland/Vancouver area. What a gorgeous location! I've recently partnered up with them as a preferred photographer and am eagerly awaiting my next wedding up there, this coming Sunday! I'm sure there will be pictures galore to be shared! In the meantime though, here are just a few from the big day with the Cross Family:

A Sunny Winter's Day!

Lately up here, we've had a whole lot of blah- not really a lot of rain and even less snow! I had a fantastic family contact me several months ago wanting their family portraits done in the snow. After waiting around for almost three months, we finally went ahead and picked a day for pictures, hoping for snow but prepared for more of the blahs. While we didn't have any snow for our shoot, we were pleasantly surprised by a beautiful, dry, sunny day!

I had so much fun with these spirited little girls and their lovey-dovey puppy dog who tried oh-so hard to get into all the pictures! I felt kind of bad because after all the waiting, two days after our session, it snowed for almost a week straight! Talk about tough luck, but either way it was a fun day and I'm happy with what we ended up with on our sunny winter's day. Here's just a few of our favorites:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays To One and All!

Boy has it been a busy year here in Washington! I can't believe it's been almost 4 months since I last updated my poor little blog. I think maybe it's time to get some one to blog updates for me. We've definitely been busy here, both with our personal lives and with the photography business. I got to work with some absolutely adorable babies, beautiful brides, rambunctious little kids, and some fun families!

The transition of moving an entire business to a new state and having to start over basically from scratch has been a daunting but rewarding task. This year, while trying to built a new clientele, I've made some very dear new friends and made several new business connections.

So, what have I been up to these last few months? Here are a few composites and favorite pictures from my most recent adventures:

One of the fun families-

And another family with some fun big brothers!

The last local wedding of the year

And another classic county wedding cake order

Then a fun trip back to Utah for some very special clients ;)

Some birthday's

And lots of cuddly babies!!

Not to mention I finally got around to doing our own family photos- NOT a small feat. Let me tell ya, I love my little family, but I'd much rather be out there photographing YOUR family any day :)

I'm so very excited to see what next year has in store for us! Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday's from our family to yours! ~Derico Photography
