I’M KYLE. PHOTOGRAPHER & CALVIN & HOBBES FAN SINCE '85
Hey! Welcome to my blog! As a Seattle, Snohomish, and Woodinville, Whidbey Island, and destination wedding photographer, I do my very best to provide as many articles and other pieces of information to provide as much value to you as I can. Browse around, have a look, and let me know your questions! My wife, Haley, and I are always here to help. We are so happy you are here, and we can't wait to chat with you about your wedding day!
Coming all the way from Hawaii, this super sweet couple (Samantha & Patrick) had their dream Treehouse Point wedding – in the rain.
You might not be able to notice that the weather was pretty bad for their wedding day in these photos (10 years of experience, coming at you), but they didn’t let the rain slow them down in the slightest. They just carried on with everything as if it was a perfectly sunny Hawaiian wedding. I loved their attitude about it, because there’s literally nothing that anybody can do about it – so why worry about it, right?
Samantha got ready with her family in the main building there at Treehouse Point, and Patrick got ready in the Burl treehouse with his family. Both have totally different vibes, and both really make you feel like you are miles away since you’re tucked into such a cozy little part of the forest, and you can hear the raging river below.
And if you by chance came across this good ‘ol blog of mine because you are searching around for some amazingly unique elopement locations – Treehouse Point is definitely one of the coolest spots out there, if you are having an intimate group (or just the two of you).
There’s mountain tops, cliffs, beaches, state parks, ferries, backyards, hot air balloons, helicopters, and a bunch of other awesome ideas to elope. And a lot of those other ideas also require a lot of logistics, planning, and traditional wedding thought. Well, with Treehouse Point, nearly everything is just taken care of for you – with recommendations through preferred vendor lists and with just simple “done for you” services so you don’t have to stress about planning.
Because let’s be real – planning can get a bit stressful with a traditional wedding. And the costs of a traditional wedding can go up and up and up with every little turn.
Don’t get me wrong – I had a traditional wedding. My wife and I got married in 2016 with 110 of our closest friends and family, and we loved every second of it. We just cut the things out that we didn’t value, and put more money into the things that we did value (like hiring the best photographer we could afford.)
You can really see the rain in this photo here. The gravel is all wet, bridge is dripping with water, and the ferns and tree branches are just soaked. And because it was such a dark & cloudy day for their Treehouse Point wedding, it allowed us to capture those gorgeous interior lights of the Temple of the Blue Moon treehouse in the background – which really added a unique flair to this iconic location.
Just remember, when you’re ready to pop that bottle of champagne – don’t point the bottle at your Treehouse Point wedding photographer – because … I smelled completely like alcohol on the way home. Haha.
