When I first introduced you to our sponsor, Seattle wedding photographers Diwas Photography, I was blown away by their inspiring use of black and whites.
Then we told you about how Diwas Photography has a built-in “anti-stranger-danger” business model… meaning, you'll hire Diwas Photography as strangers, but you'll probably come out of the whole experience as friends.
Now I wanna talk about their special storytelling approach to photography, as we gaze in teary-eyed awe at their photos from Scott and Aaron's Mount Rainier wedding…
Who tells your story…
See… the side effect of Diwas and Sadie‘s endeavor to build relationships with their clients (typically over food and drinks — yay!) is that they end up being able to catch the very essence of your wedding day. Through having a closer relationship with clients, their photos move beyond the basics and capture raw emotions.
I think Sadie captures their wedding storytelling skills best when she said:
We had a Ring Warming during the ceremony where the rings were passed around and guests were asked to take a moment to hold them,... Read more
It’s about the couple’s love more than about our “style”… Our style is to tell the story about the couple we’ve grown to know and love.
Who's multi-cultural and socially minded…
Diwas Photography is also a multicultural and socially-minded family business, with a practice of giving back to their community. They volunteer services in Seattle, and give back a percentage of their annual profits to projects benefiting children and communities in Nepal. (Sadie's from the US, but Diwas is from Nepal… and that's where THEIR story started!)
Weddings are a big investment and we like to think that by booking us, your impact beyond imagery can happen on a global scale… that’s totally the idealist in me. -Sadie
Who also loves Diwas Photography…
Don't take our word for it alone, let former Diwas Photography clients tell you how great their storytelling abilities are:
They both took a lot of time to get to know Rodney and myself, how we met, about our family, friends and of course, our upcoming wedding. The treatment we received from Diwas Photography far exceeded our expectations. Beyond that, their attention to detail on our wedding day, the way they themselves seamlessly into our day and their keen creative eye was amazing.
We couldn't be happier with our experience with Diwas for our wedding day photos. But in the process, we also made two amazing friends!
–Buzz and Rodney
Or hear it from Scott and Aaron (whose wedding day we've been enjoying)…
Working with Sadie and Diwas was a really excellent experience. It’s funny… we have been together for almost 10 years and never have had photos done like that. And showing our love for the camera was something new and reminded us how much we love each other (even if we needed encouragement!).
