2017 // Stardust Session with Laurel McConnell Photography

 Meet Laurel McConnell, who describes herself as chief photographer, cocktail maker and janitor. She forgot about a thousand other descriptors, including entrepreneurial, clever, mischievous, FUN. This girl is serious fun.TELL US ABOUT LAUREL McCONNELL PHOTOGRAPHY

Throughout the last 16 years, I’ve photographed weddings in hurricanes and dust storms, on islands and in snow, multi-day cultural events and 1.5 minute ceremonies on New Year’s Eve, and have documented love in America and not-America. I learned photography from the basics up at art school on actual film, evolving alongside the digital industry and refining my craft as went. Even though I’ve spearheaded worldwide commercial advertising shoots and have been commissioned to photograph A-List celebs and VIPs, I still love the intimacy of a wedding; each one brings an exhilarating challenge, warmness, and uniqueness that I am ever thankful for!

WHAT DO YOUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH YOU?

They have so much fun :). Often we become great friends after we shoot together, and always keep in touch over the years!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO GIVE, AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED?

I’ve been a VP, board member, or vendor each year, and sometimes all three!

The 10 year milestone is a big one. We never dreamed our organization would have flourished this way- touching nearly each person in this industry and helping so many people realize their dreams along the way …. I kinda wish I could travel back in time and show the 10-year-ago us how amazing this organization has become 🙂

2017 // Piano Performance for your Rehearsal Dinner or Dinner by Michael Benson

TELL US ABOUT MICHAEL BENSON BAND

We have been voted the Best Live Entertainment for a wedding in Seattle Bride Magazine for 13 consecutive years, and have performed at over 2300 weddings. Our service covers all the unique elements of wedding celebrations: the ceremony, cocktail/social hour, dinner hour, emcee announcements and of course, dancing. The music begins at the ceremony with a classic piano/flute ensemble, then livens up the cocktail-hour atmosphere with our jazz pianist, duo, or the full band. An elegant dining atmosphere flows smoothly along with Sinatra-Era swing and classics, played sensitively enough to allow for easy table conversation. Finally, the unforgettable climax takes off with our 80-90 minute, non-stop-segue sets of dance favorites. Our uniqueness lies in having the widest range of music heard anywhere, with everything from Sinatra Era swing and jazz for cocktail and dinner to current pop, hip hop and rap hits for dancing, all covered authentically with top quality audio.

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT YOU

Clients appreciate my prompt communication, personalized service, and attention to every detail of their events, and they continually say their guests keep talking about the music at the wedding for many years afterward. A phrase we hear over and over by guests from across the nation is “there is no band in our city who does everything you’ve done tonight, at the level you do it.”
