Vacation & Wedding Anniversaries

  • Published July 1st, 2013 by Point of View by Lou Photography Mary Lou Guinn

The month of June went by way too quick for me!  We had a super busy month in the studio - Yeah!! We love having happy clients!  

We got to work with the Peninsula High School Basketball Team for their sponsor packages to raise money so we did some fun photos them 


We also has some great business portraits.  Every person has a unique business so not every business photo is the same, cookie cutter style that you may find in the mall.  The consultation with each client is important so we can create the perfect photo for them to use. Here is a quick sample of what we were able to do for two very different business women. 

Sara Amundson is an up and coming author who was just nominated for an award and needed a photo for her book jacket and website. Her book is set in the Pacific Northwest so an outdoor portrait was perfect for her.  Angelia Colglazier is director at Tordis' Hope Foundation and needed a new business portrait for her website. 



June is also the biggest annual event that we've photographed. This is our 3rd year as the official photographer for the Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce - Maritime Festival.  The two day event has so much to offer everyone! I had the best time there. Saturday I was there for 13 hours and Sunday I was there for 6 hours.  To say the least... I was very tired when it was over!  Here are a few of my favorites!  Check out the event next year, it is always the first weekend in June.


these are the Seattle Pirates


This fun photo was taken from the top of the crow's nest on the Historic Commencement fishing boat. I was the only photographer invited to climb to the top and get some amazing photos!  The climb up wasn't that bad... it was the climb down that was a little scary!  But all so worth it. This is the Jerisch Park & the Historic Net Shed.  The park was filled with Hundreds people to check out the booths, eat yummy food and tour the beer  


Sunday is the fleet of Gig Harbor Fishing Boats that line up for the Traditional Blessing of the Fleet.  It is an amazing view to see these grand ships line up!  This one is really one of my absolute favorites!


We photographed Paul & Amanda's wedding on the 15th. These two had a super busy weekend, not only did they get married, but they also graduated the University of Washington the day before in the morning then had their wedding dress rehearsal in the evening! Then Saturday morning were married! They were headed off to Hawaii for their much needed Honeymoon!  Congratulations you guys! 


I wrote a post this last week on my facebook page with a link to some informational about the traditional "Something Blue"  Be sure to check it out.  Here is a photo of Lori's something blue, a set of simple blue hair pins were perfect for her.  Ryan and Lori celebrated their anniversary this month as well - Happy Anniversary you guys! 


We had two family birthdays, my husband Joe had his 50th birthday and my son Jared had his 11th birthday!  We had a Survivor themed party since my hubby has survived 3 strokes and a heart attack!  We had about 80 guest come by during our out door themed party!  Here are a few of my fav's - Joe with his immunity cupcake! Joe and his Dad and then Joe and my folks.


My two boys play Jr PGA golf and their Gig Harbor Team won their Pierce County division!  We had lots of traveling this month but the two that stick out in my mind are the  to the Home Course in Dupont and the Tacoma Country Club in Lakewood, both of those tournaments were rainy days!  They have a great team and here is my favorite of them all! 


And to finish off the month, I took a vacation!  We loaded up the suburban and headed to Central Oregon. We love the Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond.  We had 7 day with this amazing view. The boys went fishing and golfing and of course spent lots of time in the pool.  It was the perfect way to end this month! 


So here is looking forward to the next month!
