Jason and Cydney are seriously one of the best and I will shout it to the mountaintops until I die!! My now Hubby and I are definitely honest and know when we aren’t feeling something or when we feel we made the wrong decision in choosing things… but choosing Lavender Bouquet to do our Wedding was the BEST decision we ever made.

Our wedding was small and had ONE big hiccup (Important family members were late) and so the wedding started later than normal. But with everything that happened, they were AWESOME. They were accommodating by bringing umbrellas when it rained and took everything as it came with the “no worries’ attitude!

My husband can be a man of few words most of the time with the “it’s cool” answer to everything… but he has nothing but kind and sincere words about Jason and Cydney and how wonderful they were the day of. He tells everyone that he can tell that they absolutely love what they do, and its true!

The pictures made them EVEN MORE AWESOME!!! They came out phenomenal and EVERYONE (and I mean EVERYONE from family to friends to coworkers) RAVE about our pictures and love them just as much as we do. They have this creative eye for capturing things that I wouldn’t have even thought of and when I came up with the idea of getting some pics by my husband’s Camaro, they were like “OH YEA LETS DO IT!!”

I will use Lavender Bouquet for EVERYTHING now and will never stop referring them to people who want amazing pictures. Seriously, you will not regret it! (weddingwire.com)

We hired Lavender Bouquet Photography to shoot our son’s wedding on August 29th, 2015 and I have to say it was the best investment made for the day. They spent a whole day and into the night shooting the outdoor wedding in crazy cold wet windy weather and made the day look like it went flawless and it was amazing and beautiful. There were so many issues with the wedding, it was crazy… Mother of the bride and sisters severed all ties with her about 4 days before the wedding so they refused to come. We had to fill in their responsibilities, cake, flowers, bride’s hair and makeup, set up, rehearsal. Maid of honor fell in a fire pit hit her head on a rusty steel metal thing and had to go to hospital. Decor was wet and blowing everywhere and pine needles in the food. Only half the guest showed and others were a couple of hours late because the fairies couldn’t dock. It just seemed like everything that could go wrong did. After everything was said and done and you receive the photo’s what you see is perfection in the day, they didn’t just sit back in the shadows constantly looking at the time waiting for the day to be over so they can leave, instead they added and excitement and energy with their dedication and beautiful art work, and added some much needed sense of humor which helped us all running around like crazy “relax” and enjoy it for what it was. This put an all-day smile on the bride and grooms face, which is what made it all worth it, I quote Cydney “we made lemon aid out of lemons”!

I used Lavender Bouquet photography for our wedding in June 2012. We could not have been more thrilled with our experience with Jason and Cydney. I spent so many hours researching and looking for a photographer that was affordable, flexible and had amazing talent….we got that plus so much more. They were so detailed in every aspect, and genuinely cared about every part of our wedding, even things I would never even think of to include. They take the time to really get the photos you want. They were so flexible, and my husband and I laughed along with them as we got shots of fun and unique poses that made our wedding so special. We never felt rushed…..they got every shot we wanted.
The two photographers went above and beyond what we could have hoped for in photographers. They went through thousands of pictures to perfect each one, and got rid of all of the off-pics (blinks, double-chins…yes, it happens!) and we still got a ton of of fabulously edited pictures that I love to continue to look at. We got so many compliments on our photographers and photos. One of my friends ended up using them for her wedding, and she was so happy as well. Lavender bouquet is the full package. They offered video and even made us a wedding photo book that was high quality and gorgeous. I would (and do!) recommend them to everyone I know. Looking forward to having them do our family and baby photos some day!

We used Lavender Bouquet Photography for our engagement and wedding photos. I have to start by saying they are so amazing at what they do! They are so down to earth and personable. After contacting them inquiring about their services they offered to meet up, because we both have small children they came to our home and we talked and talked and talked.. next thing we knew it had been over 2 hours! We felt so comfortable with them. I think is was to both of our benefit to get to know each other and know our background and story prior to capturing such an important time in our life! Jason and Cyd have such a great eye for photography and use amazing angles and lighting techniques! We loved to see how excited they got after getting the perfect shot! Their love for what they do shines thru and makes the experience that much better! Rain, shine, or hurricane, you can count on great photos from these two! We absolutely recommend them!!

I would say my husband and me are so grateful to have found such amazing photographers who do love what they do for a living. Jason and Cydney genuinely cared about us and they did everything possible to make our wedding day so special. They are so dependable, detail oriented, so creative, and make us feel so comfortable. On top of that, they gave us more than what we had paid for- (We had paid for a 10-hour package but they were with us for 15 hours on the wedding date), and gave us over 1200 amazing pictures!

My wife and I are INCREDIBLY picky and wanted the very best photographer for our wedding day. Jason and Cydney absolutely delivered! Not only are they artists (just look at their work), they are also punctual, detail oriented, and went above and beyond for us. They coordinated our engagement photos, built a timeline for the wedding day, spent 15+ hours with us during our wedding day, coordinated all of the family and bridal party photos, etc. They took care of everything, all the photography details so my wife and I could enjoy our day. We received about 70 photoshopped photos that are frame/album worthy that look like they are out of a bridal magazine. We also got a thumb drive with additional 1000+ photos (that also look amazing). You guys should be charging about 3 times as much for your services because you are worth every penny. I cannot thank them enough. Use Lavender Bouquet for your wedding–I promise you will not disappointed.

After researching many photographers in the Puget Sound area, we decided on Lavender Bouquet after meeting with Cydney and Jason for dinner. My husband and I planned an outdoor wedding and were looking for less traditional photos since we didn’t have a wedding party or a lot of guests. Over dinner, we brainstormed the type of pictures were we looking for, got to know each other a little, and left feeling very excited about having them shoot our wedding. On our wedding day (Sept 2013), the team came a bit early to see the park setup and take some picture of the decor, food and guests as they arrived. During the ceremony pictures were take to capture me walking towards the alter, my husband smiling as I approached and the guests watching both of us! The ceremony was graciously captured as was our first kiss and walking away from the altar as husband and wife. After the ceremony, our guests were left to eat, dance, and play in the park while we journeyed into the woods and down to the Puget Sound to capture portraits of the two of us in this beautiful setting. Jason, Cydney, and Tim were great to work with–they would quickly look at the landscape to capture the sun, the trees, or the water and let the poses happen naturally. There was a lot of laughter, energy, and collaboration between all of us. As a result, we received some amazing pictures of us throughout the day. My husband and I look very natural in the photos and the creative use of light, shadows, and camera tricks left us with a wonderful portfolio of wedding pictures we can reflect over for years to come. We were happy to have them capture our wedding and would not hesitate to ask them to capture another special event for us!

Cydney & Jason did such a wonderful job. I am someone who really doesn’t enjoy getting her picture taken because I feel awkward standing there and not knowing what to do, but I never felt that way when Lavender Bouquet took our pictures both during our engagement shoot and the wedding. All of the pictures came out fantastic; my friends and family couldn’t stop “oohing and aahing” over them and I couldn’t believe how quickly we got all them. If I ever need an event photographed again, I know who I’ll be using.

We just spent two hours looking through the images from Nia & Warren’s wedding. From the rehearsal and dinner following through the entire ceremony and reception, the pics are wonderful. You managed to find fabulous shots both candid and posed and included all of the family plus many, many friends. We are so grateful it worked out for you to come over to lonely (and lovely) Grangeville, Idaho! Thanks so much for memories that will last a lifetime!
