Hi, we’re Brittany & Joe !
We have been wedding photographers for ten years now ! We both started our photography journey on the east coast while we were living in Boston, but didn’t find our love for weddings until we moved to Seattle in 2009.
We love that weddings encompass so many types of photography, candids, portraits, still life, fashion, landscape. It is also incredibly intimate and special and we are always honored when a couple chooses us to document such a huge milestone in their lives together. We love that our work is meaningful and will be cherished for years to come.
We have had the honor of winning many awards and being published in many magazines and blogs, but the most rewarding of all is when we get a letter from one of our couples telling us how much they love their photos and how happy they are that they chose us.
Our family run business thrives on great customer service and we give every one of our couples one hundred percent. We are here to answer questions, help with timelines, wardrobe, vendor recommendations etc. All wedding photos are delivered no later than two months after your wedding (often times much faster).
We love Seattle weddings but also travel for destination weddings in California, Oregon, Mexico, Hawaii, and Eastern Washington. Email us to set up a phone call or in person meeting so we can get to know you better and answer any questions you have !
Brittany is a romantic at heart and prides herself on being able to empathize with her photo subject. To be able to really capture a feeling you must first be able to feel that feeling yourself. Her approach to photography has always been instinctual and emotionally driven. She doesn’t care much for rules or talking gear. She loves composition, color, light, and how an image makes you feel. She will guide you during your engagement session and couples portraits on the wedding day, helping to get you comfortable and to be as natural as possible in front of the camera. With her background in fashion merchandising and graphic design, she also enjoys styling and uses this skill to enhance still life images as well as in location scouting for portraits.
"Not only does Brittany have a phenomenal eye for catching moments on film, but she really puts you at ease in front of the camera" - Analee M

Joe has a special way of making everyone feel like they have known him forever. He is a true guys guy through and through. He loves sports, fancy beer, and exploring the outdoors. He can have a conversation with just about anyone. He specializes in group portraits and is the master when it comes to family portraits on your wedding day. He also can make any kid laugh and smile for the camera (its magic !) He always spends the morning with the groom and groomsmen capturing candid moments of the guys. He also has a special talent for seeing locations and light that might get overlooked.
"They were so easy to work with and made us feel completely comfortable. It definitely helped that Joe was wearing a Bruins hat when we first met with them!" - Greta

“ Choosing Blue Rose Photography for our wedding was the best decision we made. Brittany and Joe were such a fantastic duo and they truly made us feel comfortable during our engagement photos and the wedding. They were so personable, kind and just overall professional from beginning to end. Now the photos – absolutely breathless. They used film and captured our story so beautifully. We received our wedding photos about two weeks after the event and we were OVER THE MOON. Not only were we stunned by the quick turnaround, we had no words to describe how impeccable the photos looked. Thank you so much Brittany and Joe. We look forward to working with you again in the future!”
