Azzura Photography specializes in the ‘Illustrative’ style of photography, a unique blend of the best of the photojournalistic approach with fun and relaxed group photographs, then transformed with unmistakable artistic vision. The result is natural and stunning photographs that truly tell the story of your Wedding Day.

Azzura Photography began as Seattle’s best-kept-secret: a husband-wife team quietly creating stunning images for a select group of clients. After winning national recognition and the ‘Seattle Bride Best Photographer’ award six 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.

“We love getting 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.”

Tania won us over with her cheery attitude, unique style, and great sense of humor. What sealed the deal for my wife, however, was Tania’s love for her pet bird, Margarita, named after the inspiration for the acquisition. 

Tania not only has excellent bedside manner and a love for animals, but she is skilled in her craft in more ways than I could count. Her composition, mood, lighting, focus, timing, and talent all work together to make magic appear.  Tania also always has a can-do attitude, meeting any meaningful objective or goal. She listens, she listens very closely and adapts to the client’s wants and needs and exceeds those expectations. I remember distinctly several times on the wedding day where my wife said that she liked a particular shot or moment and would say something to Tania, with Tania responding that we did that shot because she remembered it from my wife's Pinterest board.

Tania also knows how to engage her subjects. She was honest when we faked smiled and had a repertoire of jokes to evoke more honest-looking sincere moments (it’s hard to sustain attractive and convincing smiles for six hours straight!) which helped make the picture not only authentic, but stunning. Tania’s sense of timing was also spot on, she kept the pace up with the rest of the schedule, the placement of the sun and the weather in general, and with respect to the patience and energy of her subjects. Tania also rolled with the punches; we had to cancel one of our shoots last minute and Tania not only was gracious and understanding, but didn’t for one moment make us feel awkward, guilty, or shamed. Simply put, Tania is awesome, you would be well served by hiring Azzura and worrying about the zillion other things that could go wrong.

Ken and Tania are truly the best of the best! We used them for our engagement and wedding photos, and our pictures are incredible! All of our friends are asking who our photographer was. Ken made us feel so relaxed while taking the pictures, and he worked quickly so we didn’t get tired. Throughout both of our photo shoots, he was constantly evaluating the background, lighting, and our positions. We had incredible variety and options for pictures, portraits, and prints. Their professionalism is unbeatable, and they were both so easy and fun to work with. I would recommend Azzura to all of my friends and family without a doubt!

Pure perfection. We couldn't be happier, the pictures were truly amazing. Tania and her assistant Garett were awesome, flexible and able to think on the fly. We were running short on time for certain things and they were able to capture every moment of the wedding before and after. Fast and extremely skilled trigger fingers. They were worth every penny and more, fantastic job. I would highly recommend them to all my friends and family. My Wife and I are sure to use Azzura again for family photos or whenever we need awesome photos in the future.

Azzura Phtotography was fantastic. From the beginning to end they explained everything very thoroughly and walked us through every aspect of our day. Tania was able to coordinate with my venues and help take a lot of stress of my shoulders. The day of our wedding she made us feel super comfortable, relaxed AND got our huge bridal to coordinate. Our pictures were exceptional and I would not have had such an amazing, perfect day without her!! I highly recommend her and her team! Everyone has said they have never seen better pictures :)

Ken and Tania are the absolute BEST! They did both our engagement session and our wedding day and we could not be happier with the images. Ken made us feel at ease and completely comfortable in front of the camera and as a result our images really capture our personalities and our day perfectly. They are total professionals and we felt so comfortable with them throughout the entire process. I cannot say enough good things about Azzura!

FIVE STARS! We would give more if it was an option.

We are so glad that we chose Tania and her team to be our wedding photographer. She is highly organized, punctual, and professional. She also helped us out to find our other vendors and was an incredible asset to have during the wedding. On our wedding day, once we saw her, we knew that everything was going to be okay. She was able to keep the timeline moving and we even ended up with extra time to spare. If we have any other photography needs in the future, we know where to go to.

Book them if they have the availability, you will not regret it!

From the first meeting with Tania to the final delivery of the amazing images of our wedding, everything about Tania and Azzura was absolutely perfect. Tania is simply an incredible photographer. Every image is so perfectly timed as she told the complete story of our wedding with such artistic flare. Not only is she both artistically and technically gifted, she is also masterful at working with people. Her team was a joy to be around, and they blended so well with everyone. After seeing Azzura' work, it is so apparent that they well deserve their recognition as Seattle's top wedding photographer. If you want the best, you need look no further than Azzura. Thank you Azzura!!!

Tania was so unbelievably fantastic to work with for our wedding! She was an amazing resource--she helped with everything from explaining the best technique for cutting a cake to helping the groomsmen pin on their boutonnieres. She took the time to really get to know everyone in the wedding party so she was able to help us relax. And the photos were absolutely spectacular! I love the story-telling approach Tania uses. She managed to capture so many special moments from our day, managed to ensure everyone was portrayed in a flattering way, and designed a gorgeous album which was beyond the best we could have hoped for! I highly recommend Azzura Photography, you won't regret it! You will have beautiful photos for years to come, remember that it is the photos that last and so you should settle for nothing but the best :)
