A couple of months ago, a nervous Jordan called me up and said, “I am going to propose to my girlfriend on Lake Union and then fly her up to Roche Harbor for a weekend gettaway, will you photograph it for us?”  Um- HECK YES I WILL!!  We exchanged a bunch of planning texts, emails and phone calls walking through every detail to make sure it was perfect.  And it was – because it didn’t matter WHAT happened, all that matters was that she said YES! (and she did!)

 

 

Last weekend we went to Golden Gardens for Allison & Jordan’s engagement portraits, and honestly – I have no words! (When does that ever happen?!) These two are just so wonderful to be around and incredibly easy (and fun) to photograph! We walked from little Coney Island down to the end of the beach and back – laughing, talking about their wedding plans and all of the fun things we enjoy.  These two are total troopers for getting up the earliest on a Sunday morning.:)I cannot wait for their big day out at Swiftwater.  Check out a few of my favorite images from the day, I know you’ll see what I see!!

Let me introduce you to the Banducci family, one of my favorites!! Travis suggested we take their family photos under the bridge and this location is spectacular, dontcha think?!  When you add the coolest family all dolled up + a neat location makes for some really fun family portraits. We laughed far too much during this session, and I’m pretty sure I smiled the entire time while editing them too!   I hope you guys like them as much as I do!  :)

Last night was the EPIC Nerds vs Geeks party put on by our favorite City Catering Company & Shindig Events, featuring ALL of the cool electronics at the Living Computer Museum (They all work too!!) We were playing all of the fun games and eating ALL of the good food!  There was a super cool ROBOT PHOTO BOOTH (WHAT?!) and of course I snapped at least a billion images, but will just share a few of the good ones.  :) If you are considering having an event – I would totally suggest this space – there is a big open area on the first floor and the 2nd floor with all of the neatest electronics of the last 30 years

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to Mrs.Hettinger’s 4th grade class at the Mark Twain Elementary School during career week with the energy and excitement of these 4th graders – it was SO much fun I had to snap a few photos!!

Here is a link to the slideshow I showed highlighting a few images from recent weddings :: LINK

The actual presentation part was only about 5 minutes – but it was followed up by some amazing questions by these little smarties! My favorite part of this was the excitement and the questions from the kids – I talked about when I started my business (2001) and where I went to school (The Art Institute) what I focus on photographing (people).  They asked questions like – if I were to start over and do it again, what would I do differently (go to business school on top of art school), Are there other specialties of photography besides photographing people? (heck yes! Commercial, Editorial, Landscape, Fashion, Architecure – SO many!) Do I get to travel for work? (for SURE! A great perk of the job!) What advice I would have for people wanting to start in this profession? (Go to college! Learn as much as you can, work hard and be kind to everyone you meet!)
