Outdoor Engagement and/or Couples Photos

April 29, 2013  •  5 Comments

 photo 2013-02-14_0003_zps0000a0b0.jpg
PS Photography offers all different shoot types from weddings, corporate/commercial, high school seniors, family, maternity, boudoir, and pets, but one of our very favorite types of shoots are outdoor couples and engagement photos.  If you want to see more of our couples and engagement photos, you can follow us on Pinterest at http://pinterest.com/seattleweddings/couples-and-enagement-photos-by-ps-photography/ and be sure to also check out our main site at http://psphotography-video.com and LIKE us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/WeddingPhotographyandVideo

 

So why would you want a couples shoot?  Many people don't think this type of shoot is important, but they realize the importance later down the road. Those who never got a couples or engagement session often regret it.  It's not about getting your photo taken, but rather about capturing your love and emotion for each other.  That's something that you do want documented and something that you will love and cherish forever.  We don't know what tomorrow holds, so capture these moments when you still have them. 

 

We all have cameras these days, so you probably have tons of snap shots of the two of you together.  These shoots that PS Photography offers are not about a photo of the two of you standing there, but rather about art that captures your emotions for each other.  Your shoot will take place with either Trina or Jonathan, who are both award winning photographers based out of the Seattle area.  They will be able to create stunning art that you'll be proud to hang on your wall and show off to your friends.


If you're engaged, this shoot type is especially a must have.  An engagement shoot is a fun experience and can give you a break from all of the wedding planning.  It’s an exciting way to have something special for the both of you to keep and remember.

There are also many ways you can use these photos in preparation for your wedding such as:

-use it as a centerpiece for your guests

-use them to create a slideshow to play at the ceremony or reception

-create a guestbook or photo album for guest to view

-use on your wedding website

-décor for the reception

-invitations or Save the Date

 

To book your couples or engagement shoot, just go to http://psphotography.bookmonline.com/schedules/location  Once you choose your date, time and location, a confirmation message with all the details of how to prepare and where to meet will be sent to you.  If you are a Groupon or LivingSocial customer, you will be asked for your voucher number when scheduling your shoot.  Non-daily deal customers will have to pay for the shoot at the time of booking.


We are currently offering 45 minute couples and engagement shoots at the EMP, Pike Place Market, Bothell Landing and The Arboretum.  If you are looking to shoot at another location, we may be able to accomodate that, but there will be a fee for that.  You may bring up to 2 outfits and any props you want to include in the shoot.  Approx. 2 weeks after your shoot we'll have you come to our Mountlake Terrace studio to choose your photos.

Here are the locations we're currently offering shoots at.  These locations may vary throughout the year and we will update this page if we no longer offer a certain location or add more locations.

Photobooth

March 21, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

It was about a year ago that I decided to build a photobooth. I had talked to some other photographers who had them and they said it was a great experience helping people enjoy their day, and they loved doing it. I started planning it, but it was a pretty big project. I had seen a lot of photobooths that were made out of PVC pipe and bed sheets and I really wanted a high-end photobooth that would stand out. I think it makes a difference in the overall experience if you have an elegant booth instead of a pieced together do-it-yourselfer. So I did a lot of research and I had a friend help me with the woodwork. Sure I could build a case out of 2x4s and plywood, but who would want to go into that thing? What I needed was someone who specializes in finishing work, and I chose the right guy. He did a fantastic job on all the details. I researched the best cameras, printers, and touch panels and had the booth fitted for them. Now, almost a year later, the booth is finally ready to go and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.

If you're interested in booking the photobooth and you live in the Seattle area, please take a look at this page or email us at info@psphotography-video.com.photobooth
