Natural Disasters + Natural Beauty = Best Portrait Session

Today is going to be a post that has been floating around my head for a few years. I’m going to try and keep it short and succinct, while letting the imagery do most of the talking for me. For this shoot, we used a natural disaster (forest fires) into an incredible opportunity for an […]

Civil War Reenactment

It’s a new year, and for the first time in a couple of years I’m going to try a couple of new things with my blogging platform (which is also used as an extension of our website). The biggest thing that holds me back is the sheer amount of time formatting these posts. One paragraph and […]

Music is licensed, I like the vibe and flow, and I kept everything short and sweet. Very different from anything I’ve ever done before. If you like what you see, leave […]

A Rocky Mountain Wedding in Aspen!

I’ve been dying to get these photos delivered to the client so I could share them here with the world. Last month I shot one of the most hilarious and definitely most memorable of weddings in my professional career. Not only was I reunited with Bill Metek, my brothafromanothamotha who also happens to be a highly […]

Lanetria & Adam’s Day

I just finished up and delivered another wedding in a very busy spring season in downtown Seattle, and since I’ve completed the final web gallery for the bride and groom, I thought I’d share a sampler with everyone here. This couple and their respective families were by far the most fun I’ve had in a long […]

Cassandra & John’s Day

If I was asked about one thing I love most about my job,  it would have to be  all the people I get to meet, from celebrities across the country to neighbors around the corner I haven’t met yet. This latest wedding was held in Des Moines, WA where the evergreen forest meets the Puget Sound in […]
