About Looyenga Photography - Spokane Wedding Photographers

Brent Looyenga: Spokane Wedding Photographer - Coeur d'Alene, Spokane, Portland, Seattle - Spokane Wedding Photographers

Looyenga Photography started in 2012 in Portland as a way to get more camera equipment.

In short, Brent's wife, Crystal, was pregnant with their first child and Brent convinced her to let him buy a decent camera to capture their yet unborn baby - a great reason to buy a camera. After the purchase - and several posts to facebook - friends began requesting photos, and in order to upgrade equipment, Brent charged small amounts, putting everything back into the camera. First it was a lens hood here and a flash there - but as weddings started coming in (5 weddings that first year) investment began going to higher end equipment - lenses and a new camera body. Things took off, in spite of moving to the Spokane Washington area, the team photographed more and more weddings each year to the point it was supporting the child the camera was meant to take pictures of. 

Today, Looyenga Photography will book every weekend June through September, often booking about two years in advance. 

We approach several things differently when it comes to getting your pictures to you. A lot of photographers will do a photoshoot with you, but the only way you can get those photos is by purchasing prints from the photographer, oftentimes with a price that is marked up 10x the cost. Furthermore, if you want the digital photos, it’s an additional cost to you. We don’t believe this is the way to go. That’s why it does not matter which package you choose, from the most basic to the most expensive, you will always get high resolution digital copies that you can print, post, and tweet to your heart’s content. The difference is in the quantity and variety, never the quality. This is why you will rarely see print credits in our packages. However, when you do, it’s because we recognize the value of a high quality print, and the convenience of having them delivered to you. Several packages offer things we also find highly valuable, such as high quality custom photo books that can go on a coffee table for guests to look at. What is most important to us is to capture the moment, and then give you images that will help you keep that moment for the rest of your life. A picture can be priceless, and that’s why we do what we do.
