Jeff Allen, the "eye" behind Orion's Eye Photography, is the subject of our third feature on the amazing preferred photographers of the Empress Estate.

(360) 281-2127(360) 281-2127

Jeff is offering 6 hours of shooting time, 2 printed 8x10's and a disc of all pictures for $1000 for couples booking weddings at The Empress Estate.

Q. How do you describe your technique and what do you believe sets you apart from other photographers?

A. I like to challenge myself and the Bride & Groom when thinking of ways to make a picture stand out above the rest. I look at traditional wedding pictures and think of ways to make them nontraditional while still capturing the true beauty of the moment.

Q. A signature shot of yours seems to be the dramatic flowing gown and veil. How do you set up these shots?

A. A magician never reveals his secrets haha! All I can say is that it takes a team with a little timing to pull those off. And I have the best team in the business!

Q. What is your technique for getting a camera-shy subject to photograph well?

A. Laughter! Works every time! 9 times out of 10 the camera shy people are just nervous about the big day. I like to break the ice by making them laugh.

Q. Was there a particular wedding you had the most fun shooting and why (at the Empress or anywhere else)?

A. I have fun at every wedding. Stevie & Zoe at The Empress always take good care of me (and feed me well). The fun usually starts towards the end of the night when the booze is flowing and everyone is a little more relaxed.

Q. What would you say is the biggest challenge for a photographer on the wedding day?

A. The biggest challenge is to NOT miss the shot. There is always so much going on and you can't be in 2 places at once. So it takes anticipation and a little luck.

Q. What is the best thing about working at The Empress Estate as a wedding photographer?

A. The best thing is the venue itself. Inside & out it is a photographer's dream. The attention to detail in every corner is simply breathtaking. Stevie & Zoe have put so much hard work into this place to make it look like it does.
