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 three 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 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.”

Despite overwhelming demand for Azzura’s photography, Ken and Tania are continuing to cater to a limited number of clients rather than expand and add other photographers. “We really feel we can best serve our clients by remaining a boutique, and we can only preserve our artistic vision and remain true to our style if we are personally photographing each and every event,” shared Tania. “We love being small, love meeting our clients in our home, and love being personally invested in our couples – we just couldn’t imagine it any other way.”

SO AMAZING!!!! I can't praise Azzura's team enough. They were such a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process--so knowledgeable about every aspect of the wedding planning process. Both my husband and I were somewhat uncomfortable with the idea of being photographed, and Ken instantly put us at ease. He has a great eye for shots!

I've promised Tania from Azzura to write a truthful review for them because she had done so much and such a great job for our wedding photography on July 12, 2014!
In short: Choosing Azzura Photography as our wedding photographers was one of the best decisions we've made for our wedding, and the money were so well spent and what we got from them are so much worthy of the money!
long version:
we are a couple from China, I been here for 8 years and my fiancée has been here for 4 years. we knew each since 2012 and we decided to get married in July this year. And we decided to do a wedding in Seattle, where we knew each other and currently living.
there were just too many choices in photography studio - and some of them were booked at the date we chose, we ended up narrow down to 5 ~ 6 of them. and Azzura was in the shortlist. After we sent the links of their works to our various friends and family members to gather feedback, we got a lot more votes for Azzura.
anyway, we talked to Tania over the phone, met with her once between we decided to hire her. I have to say, comparing to many photographers (including one who were from Hong Kong - considering as our own people) we've talked to, Tania just feel right and very professional.
Tania is the co-owner of Azzura Photography Studio (another owner is her husband), they were both professional photographers before they met more than 10 years ago and owned their own studio already. Tania won a lot of awards with her own works.
Thank God we hired Tania! Everybody in our families love her! Even the guest were very impressive by her. She came 15 minutes early in our wedding day and leave later then the time we have paid for.
All of our guest are Chinese, and our whole wedding were carried out in Chinese; Tania were quite experienced with Asian wedding and that did not cause a problem to her (she told us that a high percentage of her clients are Asian).
And of course ,the most important thing, we love our photos!!

Tania and her assistant were awesome. The entire process from the first meeting to the review of the pictures was great. The day of the wedding we were running behind schedule but Tania helped make a quick decision and we went with it. She has lots of energy which complemented our fun crazy wedding party. I knew she would do a great job because she had also photographed my best friend's wedding. I would highly recommend them!

My heart will always have a special place for Azzura. From the 1st interaction with Tania, I knew she was the one who would make our day one that we could remember 50 years from now by capturing our memories so beautifully. She called me on the phone to discuss photography options & I can't even tell you the positive impression she left from that very first greeting. It set the bar for the entire process. Communications were outstanding throughout the entire process & her recommendations were so professional & made all the difference in this experience for us. We live in Nashville & had our wedding in Seattle, as that is our "home", & setting plans with Tania via phone and email did not disappoint in the least bit...I had nothing to worry about, as she & her fabulous team set me at ease the entire time.

When our wedding day arrived, & I finally was able to meet her, it was like running into an old friend. She is the nicest, most genuine person you could hope to have with you on such an important day. I felt like she was part of our family! She & her assistant photographer, Andrea, kept things running smoothly & captured so many beautiful moments. WIth our small party of 18, I was in awe of how they remained discrete but were also there in every moment. The photos speak volumes for the way they captured our happiness.

The premier show was so emotional & the greatest touch. Sitting there with my husband, in a beautiful space, I was overwhelmed with emotion & happiness as we watched the day unfold in front of us, captured by such talented & professional women. It was truly breathtaking. Since we were from out of state, Tania did not even hesitate to accommodate our schedule & plan the show for when we were still in town. Such a thoughtful gesture!

Azzura Photography is an investment, but one of the few that you can make in life that will keep giving back over the years. THANK YOU!

Azzura Photography is amazing! My husband and I worked with Tania for our wedding and engagement photos. She was so nice, easy going and really connected with us. She captured some of the most stunning photos that we will charish for years and years to come! So many family and friends have comment on our engagment and wedding photos with astonishment of what she was able to capture.

Tania is great and so is her assistant they know how to handle quick turn arounds for photos, traveling to capture different scenery is a short distance, large family photos and kids. We even got permission for Tania to take photos of us in the Luly Yang Boutique in downtown Seattle. It was so much fun!! Each photo is amazing and it made a dream of mine come true.

I highly recommend Azzura! There photos are beautiful and they really know how to capture moments. You can get better photographers!

We chose Azzura Photography to do our wedding photos for our wedding June 9, 2012. My (now) husband is a professional photographer, so photography was probably the most important to us. Azzura Photography has the best reviews in Seattle and was voted as the best photographer in Seattle, and my husband said their photos really proved that. I was unable to attend the initial meeting with them. When he returned from Tania's house he could not stop talking about how amazing their pictures and albums were! He always has some type of critique for other photographers, but he loved them. So we chose them for our wedding.

We probably spent 30% of our total budget on photography - that's the Satin Package (we decided to upgrade to get the photo book and full rights CD) + 9.5% tax + (optional) tip + extra pages for the photo book. You must realize going in, that they are not a low budget wedding photographer. But I do think you get what you pay for. And actually, we did shop around in the Seattle area a little, and a lot of the professional photographers run around that price range. It's hard to find a lower priced, good photographer.

Anyways! Tania was fantastic to work with. She was super friendly and personable, which makes her fun to work with. She makes you feel like a model! She gives you tons of positive feed back while taking photos. She'll say "Beautiful" "Gorgeous" "Perfect" so you really feel encouraged to keep on going, even though you really are getting tired :P She's great with children. When they are pouty, she's not afraid at being a little silly to make them smile. She knows some great tricks so you get more natural beautiful photos. She was patient with me (who was stressing at times) and with the family. She was very organized and worked well with the vendors and both our families.

She was also super flexible, which I REALLY appreciated. She let me change one part of the package (the engagement shoot which we couldn't use) for something else that we did need - more hours and a couple more pages in our book. She had fast turn around for pictures, in about 3 weeks they called us to set up our appointment for the premiere show.

We are very glad we went with Azzura Photography. We really loved our photographs. I think I have only 2 criticisms. The first is the meetings. Tania asks for two meetings before the wedding, then the Premiere show after the wedding, then if you get a photo book, 1 more meeting to pick it up. Tania lives in Eastgate and I'm coming from Seattle, so it was a little frustrating arranging that at times. Because Tania works weekends, she was not available to meet Friday-Sunday, and I did not want to cross the bridge during rush hour after work, so we had to meet during the morning or afternoon. It may be easier to meet with her after 5pm if you live on the Eastside, but for us it was not. We made it work out though, and did not have to miss too much work (I work part time). It's just something to realize, since she holds her meetings at her house, it can be a little inconvenient if you are working full time.

The second criticism, some people may not see as a problem. She gave us over 1500 photos, and a lot of those photos were so similar you couldn't tell the difference from one to another. I feel like it helps the average Joe a little bit by taking out those repeats, but that's my opinion. It makes picking out photos for your album slightly easier, and picking out photos for FB. She said she left nearly all the photos in, unless there were a weird face or something, because there may be some significance to us that they don't know. But, I feel like some narrowing down can be useful.

Anyways, I would definitely recommend them to a friend. I love that we have all rights to our pictures, so I can make as many photo albums or prints for my friends or family as I want. She also gives you a thumb drive with watermarked lower resolution photos for FB, which is also pretty cool :D So you can get those uploaded ASAP. And she posts them online for a few weeks as well. So you have many viewing options. They are very professional in the end, and I loved working with them.

Tania lives in Eastgate and I'm coming from Seattle, so it was a little frustrating arranging that at times. Because Tania works weekends, she was not available to meet Friday-Sunday, and I did not want to cross the bridge during rush hour after work, so we had to meet during the morning or afternoon. It may be easier to meet with her after 5pm if you live on the Eastside, but for us it was not. We made it work out though, and did not have to miss too much work (I work part time). It's just something to realize, since she holds her meetings at her house, it can be a little inconvenient if you are working full time.

The second criticism, some people may not see as a problem. She gave us over 1500 photos, and a lot of those photos were so similar you couldn't tell the difference from one to another. I feel like it helps the average Joe a little bit by taking out those repeats, but that's my opinion. It makes picking out photos for your album slightly easier, and picking out photos for FB. She said she left nearly all the photos in, unless there were a weird face or something, because there may be some significance to us that they don't know. But, I feel like some narrowing down can be useful.

Anyways, I would definitely recommend them to a friend. I love that we have all rights to our pictures, so I can make as many photo albums or prints for my friends or family as I want. She also gives you a thumb drive with watermarked lower resolution photos for FB, which is also pretty cool :D So you can get those uploaded ASAP. And she posts them online for a few weeks as well. So you have many viewing options. They are very professional in the end, and I loved working with them. Read less

The pictures that Tania takes are AMAZING! All my friends and family can't stop talking about how beautiful they all turned out. I would use Azzura again in a heartbeat for my wedding. They are really nice and take very creative pictures.

The pictures were AMAZING! And we got them all on a disc, which we love. However, they don't give very much time for people to view/purchase off their website, which was a bit disappointing - we got the link, and it expired less than 3 weeks later. I wasn't able to post it for at least a week after I got it, so most people missed the online pictures.

They really do great work.

I feel we would have received better value for our money if the secondary photographer/apprentice had been better trained. It is difficult for the primary photographer to capture everything. Group photos were also a bit disappointing. Wrangling large families is overwhelming I'm sure but my parents were especially disappointed with the rush job and lack of decent extended family photos to choose from. Overall we had lot's of great shots to choose from and the album designs are lovely. The staff is very friendly and Tania was a pleasure to work with throughout. We had a few communication hiccups along the way but she was always more than accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to go to Azzura for special photography in the future.

Tanya was great to work with. She was very flexible, sometimes a bit chessy, but overall very professional. Only complaint is the prices are very high, but I was willing to pay for quality pictures and album.

They were very good and professional. Pictures these days are expensive, and we thought the negatives were to be included with the additinal purchase we made. At the end, they were very flexible and we got the negatives in the package.
