Preferred vendor * Aria Style at Palisade Seattle

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Lynette and Nate’s wedding at Palisade in Magnolia. This Kansas City couple planned a lovely and successful celebration, with the help of their friends, and a preferred vendor list. I am so grateful to be on the preferred list at several beautiful Northwest venues, and I know my colleagues feel the same. Award winning Aria Style is known for their exquisite flower arrangements. The bride was so happy with how gorgeous everything looked, based only on information she gave them over the phone. Their eye for color and detail is, as Lynette put it, “breathtaking”!Palisade Restaurant Seattle Wedding

Bride and groom bring great ideas for photos on Lake Union

It was such a pleasure to work with Renee and Matt on their photography plan. They had so many great ideas and brought really cool props. I love when couples bring their ideas to the table –  I know you will be having fun when it’s something you want to do. It’s always a collaboration between subjects and photographer that makes for the most successful photo sessions!

Stunning Winter wedding at Delille Cellars, Woodinville

This February Saturday was a great example of the amazing sunshine we had in Seattle this winter, and sun is always welcomed on a wedding day!

Kathryn and David trusted Solomon Events to create a warm and luxurious event at Delille Cellars Winery. Kathryn was thrilled with her hair by Erin Hunt, and make-up from Susan Cummins. Also there were the prettiest flowers you ever did see, by Nisha of Fluerish. The ceremony was graced by the beloved Reverend Mary Calhoun, and the reception played out perfectly under the direction of Austin Beaver. New Renaissance Cakes was the perfect choice for this classy event.

I was just thrilled to be there and witness these two love birds. Seeing clients have so much fun after months of planning, is hands down the best part of my job.

My Cell Phone Wedding Photos 2014

Guests have always wanted to take pictures of their loved ones at weddings. They want to capture the moment for themselves – to have in their records.  The cell phone is a great tool for that, which I find really fun to watch! I love that anyone, at any time, can take a photo ( and  better yet a video )  of what is happening. This is what is going on now all over the world! 24 hours a day! Just think of all the documentation we have.  I’m fortunate my Dad took so many slides, that we now spend hours going through them on a projector, reel after carefully labeled reel.  I think selfies are a fantastic angle, to include yourself into the captured moment. This of course is not a new idea, but now much easier to execute successfully  – you know, so you can post just the right one.

Gorgeous DIY wedding in West Seattle

Wow – what a summer we have had here in Seattle! Jeff and Jessica got just the weather they’d hoped, for their classy and itimate private home wedding. The details were so charming and special, and the night was the most perfect, and most fun celebration.

The head table was totally cute, and all the guests could see them. Here they are shouting greetings back to their guests in some silly back and forth banter.

Thanks for letting me be a part of it, and thanks Seattle sun, for coming through big time this year!
