Bri and Mike

Hi everyone, and welcome back to my blog. Today, I am blessed to post a gorgeous engagement shoot with an amazing couple. Mike used to work for us at McKenna Video Services, years ago when he was in high school. Mike was one of our video editors. Wow has time flown by! We were so excited when he reached out to us to take his engagement photos. Of course we accepted right away, and had the opportunity to meet Mike’s love, Bri. What a beauty! Mike, you did good!!:)

I met up with Mike and Bri at the Mayflower Dairy Barn in Frederickson. I love this location for all of it’s different backdrop options. We dodged a few raindrops early on, but ended up with a beautiful evening. Perfect overcast skies for that great skin tone that all photographers hope for.

Congratulations to you both, Bri and Mike. It is obvious how much you love each other. Both Chris and I want to wish you the most amazing life together. Always have fun!!

Recent Customer Testimonial – Tacoma Wedding Photography

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to post a testimonial that we recently received. It is from Kari & Derrick, who we were fortunate enough to photograph last June (ok, so their wedding was almost a year ago-big deal, right?).

“We just wanted to say thank you, you guys were amazing and made our special day even that much better! You guys were wonderful and your photos really reflect that. I have showed off my album to numerous people and have even given your name and number out.

I can’t wait to work with you guys again…hopefully for pictures of a new addition to the family!!

~ Kari & Derrick

Thank you Kari & Derrick for the opportunity to be your wedding photographer. It was an honor! And happy anniversary (almost).

Now Printing on Slate, Metal, and Canvas

In addition to the traditional photo print and album, McKenna Video & Photo is pleased to announce we can also print on Slate, Canvas, and Metal.

Slate is a rock-like material. Each print on slate is completely unique and will not look like any other print since they are hewn from stone just prior to having the print applied. Metal print,well, is a print on a piece of metal. They’re edgy, contemporary, and they enhance all the colors in the photograph. They can be placed on a table, hung on a wall, or pieced together with other metal prints for a completely unique mural. And a canvas print is much like a painting. The print is applied to to a canvas and then stretched over a wood frame. The canvas can be hung on a wall as is, just like in our studio, or it can also be placed in a frame. Please note that the quality of each canvas is very high, and not of the cheap “costco” quality that you are now seeing in the discount, wholesale, and neighborhood drug stores.

All prints come in various sizes, including custom sizes and pricing is completely dependent on size and other factors.

Please call for details.

Kari and Derrick – Tacoma Wedding Photogapher

We had the privilege of photographing Kari and Derrick’s wedding a few weeks ago, and oh boy, how much fun was that day!

It was a very warm day, and fortunately, we were able to shoot all (ok, most) of our formals in the shade of a beautiful tree at their friends house. We also had the benefit of a fully restored, and loud 1938 Chevy to use in some of our photos.

Kari & Derrick’s ceremony and reception was held at the Tacoma Sportsman Club, in Tacoma, WA. Over the course of the day, it was obvious to us how much this great couple love each other and their friends, and we thank you both for the opportunity and the honor of being your photographer.

Blessings to you both.
