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 […]

Wrapping up 2016!  After the Christmas parties, events, portraits, corporate fundraisers, more parties and other events I’ve been working daily for the past couple of months, I did schedule some time to do some smaller family outdoor portrait sessions with attendees of the corporate jobs I met along the way as the end-of-year party season ramped […]

Last Outdoor Portrait Session of the Year

As the final days count down, 2016 has been a wild and exciting ride as we finish out with one last outdoor portrait session of the year. This wonderfully sweet and warm family finally got ready just in time for the Seattle’s winter rain to start, and it almost ruined our scheduled shoot. Luckily I knew […]

Portrait Sessions Video!

Very excited! I just made my first portrait video for my company from scratch without hiring a service to put it together for me. 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 […]

Photo Restoration of a Late 1800’s Print

Last week I was writing a piece about a very difficult late 1800’s photo restoration project with some sample images, and decided that I should also post it here.

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 […]

Photo Restoration: An Old Irreplaceable Photograph

This post is going to be a little different, but one I hope you will find both interesting and intriguing. Over the past three or four years, I’ve started receiving and accepting photo restoration jobs that I have come to enjoy more than I ever thought I would. In recent years, I’ve realized I’d kind […]

Ju & Calvin’s Day

It’s been a busy spring! My latest wedding was a small intimate home wedding in Renton, Washington. The service was held on the back porch with sunlight softly filtering through the trees, and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful ceremony. Here’s to a long and happy future for Ju and Calvin!  Rich Leighton May 30, […]
