Yesterday we braved the tulip and daffodil fields (no actually it wasn’t bad at all) before the rain and the weekend and as I look back on these photos I sobbed! These babies have brought so much laughter, love and joy into our family. Their connection is far better than anything I imagined and that makes me so stinkin grateful! Swipe through to see baby Maddux at the end 5 years ago to the day! Thank you to @roozengaarde for the beautiful fields!
Totally swooned over this reception set up last weekend in #rocheharbor ! This weekend and next week is Spring break with the kids and we’re officially taking a few days off (check out stories to see what we do with our pop up camper!) and then wedding season is in full force for us for the remainder of 2019! Floral and design @firstandunionevents & @verbenafloralseattle
I remember when we first Skyped with Michael and Megan. They had us cracking up the entire time and I knew then that their wedding day was going to be a blast. Fast forward a year and a half and their wedding at @rocheharborresort was exactly that, a BLAST! The days leading up to the wedding weren’t looking promising for weather and Megan still kept such a positive attitude about it. The ferry ride was windy and rainy but as soon as we got to #sanjuanisland the SUN came out and the rains stopped. It ended up being the perfect day and they enjoyed their garden ceremony rain free! Steven and I had so much fun and it’s days like this one that don’t even feel like work but rather a career that brings us so much joy, creativity and friendships! Cheers to Michael and Megan!
I’ve never gotten to visit @rocheharborresort in the early Spring and omg was it amazing! If you’ve never been this time of year, run! The blooms were out of this world and it wasn’t too busy. Truly magical! #lloydphotographers #rocheharbor #rocheharborwedding #cherryblossom #springflowers #sanjuanisland
Thinking of this beautiful day as we prep to head to Roche Harbor tomorrow! AND yesterday was this sweet bride’s birthday! Happy birthday Brittany!
I mean, at least these jokesters thought I was funny 🤪🤪 But really, for the Groom and Groomsmen, I think there’s sometimes this stigma that photography has to be stiff and super serious and let’s be honest, super posed and not that enjoyable. But I think that’s far from what it needs to be! Yes of course we still get the “normal” shots, but this one was my favorite! It shows these guys truly enjoying themselves and cutting up, regardless of the fact that they were being photographed!
Spring is here! Something I love to photograph so much on a wedding day are the details! Its time that I feel super creative and in the zone ❤️ It’s what you spend so much time planning, envisioning and styling on wedding day. Love love love these florals from @oakandfigfloral and styling with @elegantaffairswa at @lakewoldgardens SO beautiful!
@lakewoldgardens is a magical place. It’s one of those hidden gem venues that when you arrive, you feel like you’ve landed somewhere in a secret garden somewhere in Europe! Today they’re having an open house from 1-3pm! Come see this incredible place and meet us!
It’s been almost ten years since I started shooting weddings. Our business has given our family so many opportunities, friendships and endless adventures.

This past weekend was one that reminded me how grateful we are to be doing this together. Photographing weddings brought us to New Orleans this past weekend. It was an opportunity to see an old friend and experience a new place, and we loved every bit of it! Jessica and Ian, we loved being a part of your wedding!

We loved you NOLA!

Avery Rae today you turn TWO! You are the most easy going smiley little girl with a heart that completely melts us. I think one of my most favorite qualities is your pure contentment! We love you so very much! Yesterday we celebrated Avery’s birthday with an “Avery’s Library: Chapter Two” theme. She has an incredible love for books. It’s the first thing she asks for when she wakes up in the morning! She was over the moon about all the books she got and the book decorations!
Vulnerability post and cute Sophie’s face just because! WA ferries was a total bust today and a normal hour drive home took me almost 4 hours (and I’m still on the ferry as I write this!) 🙋🏼‍♀️
Putting yourself out there is HARD. We watch stories and get inspired, laugh, learn something new from people who show up and put themselves out there! We assume it’s easy but guess what? It’s hard!
With all the extra time I had in the ferry line I decided dang it, I’m going to just get on stories. My lipstick has worn off, my hair is in a terrible wind blown ponytail and the lighting is crap but I’m going to do it anyway!
And you know what? It felt GREAT! My friend @jennakutcher is always encouraging to show up and show your face! So it’s something myself (and Steven too!) are going to more often. We have some upcoming ideas and projects that were masterminding and it’s something we’ll be sharing in the future. 🤩
Today I encourage you to show up! Show your followers that you’re a REAL human being and you have more to share!
This is Us! After meeting so many new faces yesterday I thought a formal intro would be a great way for you all to get to know us better! We are Amanda and Steven, the faces behind #lloydphotographers 📷 First and foremost we are Mom & Dad to 3 little loves. Maddux (6) Avery (almost 2) and Cooper (in heaven) and two fur babies, a senior golden retriever and our wild loveable AussieDoodle puppy! We got married SO young and found our way into wedding photography 10 seasons ago! I started our business while Steven was still in the Army, and then Steven joined me full time 5 years ago! Nearly 400 weddings later and we still enjoy ever single couple and every single wedding just as much as we did in the beginning! We love the joy, the challenge, the artistic creativity and all the time that we get to spend together as wedding photographers! We feel so lucky to fill our weekends with I do’s, dance parties and incredible love stories, and our week days never missing milestones and time with the kids. We wouldn’t want to be doing anything else and are so grateful to all the amazing couples who have invited us to document such a special time in their lives!
