Tacoma Wedding Photogapher

July 25, 2010

We had the privilege of photographing Kari and Derrick’s wedding a few weeks ago, and oh boy, how much fun was that day! :-)

It was a very warm day, and fortunately, we were able to shoot all (ok most) of our formals in the shade of a beautiful tree at their friends house. We also had the benefit of a fully restored, and loud, ’38 Chevy to use in some of our photos.

Kari & Derrick’s ceremony and reception was held at the Tacoma Sportsman Club, in Tacoma, WA. Over the course of the day, it was obvious to us how much this great couple love each other and their friends, and we thank you both for the opportunity and the honor of being your photographer.

Blessings to you both.

Melanie & Tyler’s Engagement Session

July 19, 2010

Our congratulations go out to Melanie and Tyler, who were recently engaged to each other. We are really looking forward to their wedding next February in beautiful Snoqualmie (we’ll pray for decent weather).

We had the opportunity to photograph them together for their engagement portraits last week in Enumclaw at a place called “Hope Hill” and at Tyler’s grandmothers house. The session was extremely fun, but hot, and I only got stung one time while in the field of flowers. :-)

We’re posting a few of those photos here for your viewing and we’ll be adding their gallery to our Zenfolio portfolio later today.

Congrats Mel and Tyler, and we’ll see you soon.

Julie’s Senior Pictures

July 7, 2010

Well, I’m a goof. I admit it. In the hustle and bustle of end-of-school-year activities, weddings, other work and life in general I neglected to post our good friend Julie’s senior photographs.

We actually took these photos a few months back at Heritage Park in Puyallup, WA and in our studio. We had such a great time with Julie over those two sessions. She is such a spark of life and we are happy to know her.

So, without much more adieu, we give you a video of Julie’s Senior Pictures.

Way to go, Julie. Congrats on making it through and best wishes for much success in life.

Blessings,

Chris.

Happy Fathers Day

Happy Fathers Day.

Memorial Day Thank You!

May 31, 2010

Today,
we pause to reflect
on the sacrifices that
our brothers, our fathers,
our fellow countrymen
made to keep us safe,
to keep us secure,
to give us freedom,
to give us liberty,
to give us a place to live,
to study as we choose,
free to worship as we choose,
free to pursue happiness as we choose.

We can’t thank you enough
for the sacrifices that you made.

Today we honor you.

Chris

Thank You for the Thank You

May 22, 2010

One of the greatest rewards in my life are the “thank you”‘s I get from my customers. And I don’t mean the “thank you for transferring my video tape to DVD”-type of thank you. I mean the “my photographs are so awesome” sort of thank you.

Consider the following we have received:

“I would highly recommend Chris McKenna (and MVS) for anyone who wants to work with a photographer and videographer who is honest and works very hard to accomodate their clients. They have done the photography and videography of my son’s wedding (April, 2009) which also included his engagement pictures on the waterfront in Tacoma and a movie to be played at the wedding of the bride and good and family members. They also helped us put together the most beautiful wedding album I’ve ever seen (and I’m in the wedding business as a florist and see many albums, pictures, etc.).

They also did an on location session of my grandson’s first pictures. They came to the home so the baby could be in his own basinet and surrounded by his own blankets, toys, etc. I thought this was very caring and the pictures are just beautiful. This company is A#1 and I will only use and recommend them to anyone who needs a first class photographer and videographer.”

“You are a fantastic photographer, Chris! The pictures turned out incredible and you guys did a beautiful job of capturing the day! Thank you both for your photographic genius, your support and your friendship!”

~ Jodi & Alden


“I want you two to know how much we love the video you made for us. You also did a fantastic job on our pictures. You’re the best–thanks so much.”

~ Kim & Reese


“Chris and Lynette were great. They are easy to work with and our pictures are more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. They helped us out a lot of our actual wedding day and were respectful of our requests. I would highly recommend Chris McKenna (MVS)”

~ Stacy & Shaun (excerpt taken from Pictage)


“Chris is a very professional photographer who was very easy to work with. He was on time for all meetings and was very organized on the day of our wedding. I would recommend him to everyone I know. He has a great customer service attitude and his number one concern is his client’s satisfaction and happiness with his work. We were very pleased with the quality of his work and the time he spent to get the right shots on our big day. We were so glad we decided to go with Chris McKenna (MVS) for our special day. No regrets, only total satisfaction.”

~ Kristine & Andrew (excerpt taken from Pictage)


“We hope you know how much we appreciate all the hard work and dedication you put into our wedding-you worked so hard and genuinely cared about capturing the whole day!

We feel that thank you is not enough. The pictures are gorgeous and the video you did for us makes me cry every time. People at work are always commenting on how good it was (and how many people it brought tears to).

So thank you for adding that special touch!!!”

~ Sinead & Kevin

Do I need to say any more?


Blessings,


Chris

Happy Anniversary Jennifer and Jason

May 16, 2010

We want to wish Jennifer and Jason a very happy anniversary.

Monday marks the 1 year anniversary of their wedding-which is in actuality their 2nd anniversary. Confused? Well, Jason is serving our country in the military and was due to be deployed so they got married just before he shipped out. When he returned, about a year later, they got married again-this time with friends and family present.

This ceremony and their reception took place at the Pioneer Park Pavilion in beautiful Puyallup, WA on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon.

We are posting this video here in honor of their first, er second anniversary. Thank you for your trust and honor of being your photographer. We are so happy to hear you are in love with your photos, the album and this video.

God’s blessings,

Chris.

Baby Lilian

April 14, 2010

This montage is of my newest niece, Lilian.

I was privileged to take her photographs a few weeks ago, along with her older brother and sister (who were so much fun). Lily was so good-definitely the best baby we’ve ever photographed.

Congrats Andrew and Heidi on the newest addition to your family. Enjoy the video.

Blessings,

Chris
