Meet Kat and Justin, the duo behind Persimmon Images: best friends, hiking partners, and aspiring world-travelers. He’s a whiz in the kitchen, a rock climber, and an oncological nurse practitioner. She’s a gardener, a long-distance cyclist, a meditating Buddhist, and a former Wedding Bee blogger. These two in a nutshell: “we’re crazy, we’re adventurous, and we collect new experiences like some people hoard cats”. We are so thrilled to have this photography team on board for our Get Hitched, Give Hope gala this year!
Kat & Justin believe in photography that captures who you are and how you love each other. Nothing forced, nothing fake, and nothing cheesy (unless it’s funny-ironic-intentional cheesy). In addition, they think couples deserve photographers who “get” them and, not only that, photographers who can capture their affection and joy, and all the funny quirks of the person you fell in love with so that you can always appreciate each other when you see the gorgeous images we make together. Kat & Justin pride themselves on producing handmade, heartfelt documentary photography and portraiture with an artistic eye.
If you’re looking for a quirky, fun-loving photographer team, look no further! Kat & Justin firmly believe that life isn’t “One Size Fits All” and neither are the couples they photograph. They believe that weddings shouldn’t be limited by tradition (though feel free to start one yourselves!), but be a custom-tailored, heartfelt expression of love … and a kickass party to boot. And they want to be there every step of the way. Drive to Montana and down miles of dirt road to photograph a wedding? They’ve done that. Hike a mile up a muddy mountain trail to capture a handfasting? That too. Snap a standing-room-only ceremony in a dark bar with a Blues Brothers groom and retro rock-n-roll bride? Yup. Shoot a ren-faire costume ceremony that wedded an elf bride to a kingly groom, complete with a sword fight and pig roast? Yuuuuuup. They’re down for just about anything.
When asked why they are participating in Get Hitched Give Hope this year, when there are so many other bridal shows out there to choose from, this is what they told us:
Persimmon Images has been a part of Get Hitched, Give Hope since 2009! When Kat started the photography business and entered the wedding community, she immediately searched for a meaningful charitable organization to join in order to give back. Because she was leaving a PR/Marketing position at a local software company, she joined the GHGH PR/Marketing team and has been a member ever since! Showing support for the wonderful creative professionals in the wedding community and donating services for a charitable purpose gives us both a greater sense of fulfillment.
What is Persimmon Images donating?
A two-hour completely custom engagement session at the locations of your choice — your home, a favorite park or pub, an iconic Seattle landmark, your first date spot, or a combination of any of the above!
To top it all off, they’ll present your finished photographs in a gorgeous, press-printed, lay-flat Coffee Table album that you can use as a signature guest book at your wedding or simply a keepsake for yourselves.
