Thanks for checking out my sample galleries and considering me for your event. My goal is to capture the feelings and emotions of your special day through candid and creative photography in a friendly, laid back, and easygoing way. I know your wedding day will be one of the most memorable moments in your life. It is a time to celebrate love, joy, friendship, and family, and I work hard to make sure your photos express these moments.
I’ve been a professional photographer for over 30 years, and have been shooting weddings full time for 20 years. I’m based in Western Washington, in beautiful Olympia. I’m available for weddings in Tacoma, Centralia, Shelton, Aberdeen and the greater Puget Sound area, and I will gladly travel for destination weddings. I’m often booked well in advance, so please call me or check my calendar for availability. To set up an appointment, please call (360) 456-0206 or use the contact form.
Thanks again, and I look forward to working with you,
~ Rix Smith
Things to keep in mind for the shoot:
Your wedding portraits begin 2 to 2 1/2 hours before the ceremony, depending on the size of the wedding party. This is important because everyone is fresh and it allows for a smooth transition from wedding to reception. We begin with formal portraits of the complete wedding party and family group portraits in the sanctuary of the church or on church grounds, then continue with just the bride and groom in classic formals and contemporary portraits. The ceremony is photographed unobtrusively with no flash from the balcony or rear of church.
