My Beloved News!

MyBelovedBarn.jpg

 

Hello from the My Beloved team!

 

We wanted to take a couple of minutes and update you on all that is new and exciting in our world(s). I think our word for this year is going to be growth and we’re pretty excited for all it has in store for us.

 

As some of you may know Liz and her family have moved to a beautiful property in Snohomish.  Liz has quickly found herself in the midst of farm life and is loving it. It was the gorgeous barn on this property that Liz and her family fell in love with. After 8 years of doing something she loved, Liz has decided to step back from photography and focus on her family and creating a new place to gather. We will be updating you with more details and photos as the year goes on so be sure to check back now and again to see more of the progress on what could turn into a wedding venue!! Needless to say Liz and her family have their hands full at the farm and because of this I have taken over the photography end of things.

 

The growth and changes do not end there. I too am working on a little renovation and hope to have a working photography studio space up and running here at my home in Seattle very soon. My focus will be on portraits, head shots and personal branding for business owners. I will also be taking a limited number of weddings in 2017 as well. We will be updating our site with information on our progress and new offerings soon so if you want more information please shoot us an e-mail (mybelovedinfo@gmail.com) if you have any questions.

 

We hope that your 2017 has been good to you so far and we look forward to sharing more about the projects we’re working on very soon.

 

Cheers!

 

Christie & Liz

Kristeen&Greg_Olympic Rooftop Pavillion_Seattle, Wedding

Kristeen and Greg met at  The Rusty Knot in NYC.  She went with a friend and he was there to hear one of his favorite DJ’s.  When Greg spotted Kristeen he knew he had to talk to her.  Greg sent a friend to find out if she was singe and when word came back that she was he made his move.  The rest is history.  This gorgeous couple lives in Brooklyn, NY but decided to tie the knot in Seattle where Kristeen grew up.  They chose the picturesque Olympic Rooftop Pavillon in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood for their ceremony and reception.  Kristeen’s expertise in interior design shows through in every beautiful detail of this wedding.Watching one of your childhood friends find the love of her life and being there to capture every moment of her wedding day was such an amazing gift.  There may have been a few tears shed behind the camera (ok, a lot of joyful tears were shed).  There were so many personal details that made this day unforgettable. Their favors that included the quintessential “I love NY” tote bag were full with items from both of their hometowns as well as items from the big apple where they met.  They also win for best first dance song EVER!  The adorable pair took to the dance floor as husband and wife and were serenaded by their good friend and recording artist Duncan Sheik!  What a memorable evening it was.  A big congrats to Kristeen & Greg!!  Cheers to many happy years to come dear friends.

Lexi&Caleb_Lord Hill Farms_Snohomish, WA Wedding

We met Lexi & Caleb through her cousin Mike.  Mike just happens to be one of our favorite wedding DJ’s to work with so when she contacted us we were so on board!  With that said Mike kept the party bumping for this gorgeous couple and we may or may not have danced a little while taking photos into the late hours of the evening.  It’s so hard not to when good tunes are playing!  Thank you Lexi & Caleb for letting us be a part of such an amazing day!

Seattle_Arboretum_Engagement

Brendon and Noella picked a gorgeous spot for their engagement photos this last weekend.  As photographers we love the Arboretum.  So much natural beauty around every corner especially as the cherry trees are in bloom!  The amazing pops of pink everywhere had us all swooning.  We’re so excited to be a part of their big day coming up in just a few short weeks.  Stay tuned for more photos of this beautiful bride to be.

XoXo,

Christie & Liz

Lord Hill Farms_ Snohomish WA _Harry & Chi

This is not your typical love story.  Harry first laid eyes on Chi at a conference he was attending in Hong Kong.  She was living in Thailand and he was here in the Seattle area.  After there initial meeting they kept in touch and continued to meet up/date all over the world.  These world travelers decided to make it official and tie the knot at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish, WA with guests flying in from all over the world!  Their day was beautiful and punctuated by the most amazing cloud filled sky (stuff we photographers live for).  The decor and grounds were travel themed and could not have been more representative of this adorable couple.  Thank you Harry & Chi for allowing us to document your beautiful love story.

Cheers!

Private Farm Wedding_Hobart, WA_Sally & Cresap

Sally & Cresap met in the airline industry.  Cresap is a pilot and Sally managed new recruits.  When we met with them Sally’s enthusiasm for planning this amazing celebration of their love was totally contagious.  We believed it would be amazing and it was!  They were married on his parents beautiful property in Hobart, WA.  It was beyond what we expected.  The icing on the cake, so to speak, was the entertainment.  They hired their favorite band Vaudeville Etiquette to play the reception and they rocked the house!  This wedding was so much fun to be a part of  and we feel so blessed to have met this amazing couple. Best wishes newlyweds!

Filigree Farm_Buckley, WA_Wedding_Jennifer&Kurtis

Jennifer’s best friend worked with Kurtis and just knew they would hit it off so she introduced them.  This adorable couple both love animals, in fact, Kurtis works at an animal sanctuary it’s it’s not uncommon for him to bring his work home with him.  It’s fitting that they were married on a farm (Filigree Farm) with a few equine friends taking in the ceremony from the next pasture. It was a beautiful setting and an even more beautiful event filled with friends, family, and love.  Best wishes to you Jennifer and Kurtis on your new life together!

Red Barn Studios_Chehalis WA_Katie & Andy

We met Katie at a wedding.  She was the friend of the bride and the officiant for the wedding we were shooting.  Upon meeting this spunky little officiant in aviator glasses we knew we liked her but had no idea we would soon play a part in her nuptials as well.  Through Katie we got to met Andy and got to know them as a couple.  They are sweet, kind, and super goofy and we’re so glad to have met them both.  Katie & Andy, we had a blast!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such an amazing day.

All the best,

Christie & Liz
