||After shooting a few weddings for friends in 2005, Gerald and his wife Airika quickly fell in love with the excitement and energy of photographing weddings, and Gerald Pope Photography was born. “For us, nothing is more rewarding than creating something fresh, unique and beautiful. Our favorite part of the wedding day is collaborating with the bride and groom to transform even ordinary settings into something remarkable.”
They have quickly caught the attention of brides and grooms nationwide with their eye for composition, detail and the intuitive use of light in their imagery. Gerald & Airika are members of Modern Photographers and WPPI, and have recently been published in Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom, and the new eco-chic online wedding magazine, Seattle Style.
In addition to photographing weddings, Gerald is also the photographer for a local magazine in Seattle. He says, “I absolutely love my job there. I work with an extremely creative team, and they give me a lot of freedom to push my limits and experiment with new ideas. The experience I have gained there over the past two years has more than prepared me to handle the fast pace and difficult lighting situations we often face at weddings. There’s nothing like on the job training with a deadline to teach you how to do things right the first time!”
