They were once Seattle’s best-kept-secret: a husband-wife team quietly working out of their Bellevue home studio, creating stunning wedding images for a select group of clients. After winning national recognition and the ‘Seattle Bride Best Photographer’ award two years in a row, Ken and Tania Shepard of Azzura Photography quickly became the Northwest’s most sought-after wedding photographers. It wasn’t long before Azzura’s unique illustrative-style and raving clients landed them on the elite referral lists of Seattle’s top venues and coordinators, and their weddings are often booked years in advance.
All the buzz hasn’t slowed Ken and Tania from doing what they love most, and their full photography schedule is exactly what they dreamed of when they married seven years ago. “We often wonder how we became so fortunate, and I think a large part of it is our desire to get to know our couples and create photographs that are not just beautiful, but are also deeply meaningful to them,” says Ken. “There is a quality of genuineness in our images that is hard to describe, but you can feel it; when you look at the photographs, you know the moments are real and that our couples are truly being themselves.”

We have worked with Merry Beth Turpin of Aisle of View for the past fifteen years. We have developed a wonderful relationship with her and her staff. Always professional and very personable, each event we work on together is a pleasure…no matter how complicated the details may get. Merry Beth is thorough, extremely detail oriented and simply amazing. If there is ever a question about one of her events, a simple phone call, text or e-mail will get a quick and accurate response. She double and triple checks details to make absolute sure that everything is on track. We often work together on large, involved events and it is a pleasure to know that she will keep us informed on any changes in the time line or other details of the event.
When a Bride is looking for a coordinator I always tell them to find someone they feel comfortable with. Someone who listens to them and keeps detailed notes of the event as it grows and evolves. A coordinator needs to be organized, know how to easily navigate through the piles of information and converse comfortably with vendors that will be involved. And along with everything else be budget conscious and know when to suggest alternatives. Merry Beth is a perfect fit on every point.
