a little peek | Seattle Wedding

With all of September nearly behind us, I still have some catching up to do editing portraits and weddings. It's killing me to wait, so here's a little peek at Tony & Ally's Shilshole Bay Beach Club wedding. These photos all took place near Parsons Garden on the south side of Queen Anne. More soon!


Octennial | Seattle Portrait Photographer

It's been 8 blissful years since Nate & Ingrid were married at Kubota Garden in South Seattle. Lucky me, I got hooked up with them and theirs was one of the first weddings I photographed. It seems so long ago and much has happened. They picked up and moved across the country to the Big City, Nate helped create and is partners in a pretty sweet company. (Check out Animoto if you've ever wanted to make your own photo slideshow and didn't know how, it is the shizzle.) On top of that, they have a three year old in tow and a new one on the way. We originally planned to do portraits on their 8 year anniversary, but it was raining and we postponed. Thankfully this beautiful day was just around the corner.

Congratulations on 8 amazing years you two!


The Look Of Love | Whidbey Island Wedding

The evening began with closest family and friends enjoying French wines and scrumptious appetizers created by Dave & Dawn Noble and their fabulous team at beautiful Fireseed on Whidbey Island. These two Francophiles couldn't have chosen a more beautiful location to hold their intimate wedding. Gathered within the gardens among the hollyhocks and loved ones, the couple joined in marriage after many years of commitment.

And with "I pronounce you Groom & Groom", wine and tears of joy flowed and the fete continued. Tiffany Blue accents graced the table of vintage vessels containing flowers, French soaps, bon bon tins and pocket sized Eiffel Towers for each guest as a reminder of the enchanted evening.

I knew it would be a special event when I first met Kieran & Alan and their good friend turned wedding coordinator. No detail was overlooked, and it truly was a perfect day. Congratulations!


Urban Textures | Snoqualmie Senior Portrait Photographer

September is thee best time to do your Senior Portraits. The evening light is gorgeous, with long shadows adding to the drama. It's still warm enough to get outdoors and change up your look with shorts or sundresses, maybe accesorize with a knit hat, scarf or fall sweaters.

Our area is surrounded by beautiful backdrops, whether it's urban or country. Small towns like Snoqualmie where we did these portraits by the old train depot, have a lot of texture, color and character. Pretty parks and such don't always make the best background when you're looking to create mood in photos. I love the strong lines of the train tracks and the multitude of textures the train lends. Check these out.


Back to School | Snoqualmie Senior Portraits

Last Friday I photographed a few seniors from Class of 2011. It's a bit of a bummer for those that went back to school today. Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous out and I can't imagine being indoors on a beautiful day. Good news though seniors, only one year left!
