{Brooke + Patrick} Seattle, WA Engagement Photo Session

February 6th, 2014 : Engagements

Brooke + Patrick are one solid couple!  When it’s their engagement photo session in Seattle, WA and it’s raining sideways you tend to see how well couples work together, (to keep warm after their coats have been off for a while in 35F weather!!).  There’s been this running joke between Wendy and I of how we have this seriously laughable good weather karma when we have photo sessions coming up.  We’ll be driving somewhere and it’ll be pouring rain but when we get to the location the skies open up and everything is beautiful.  Well……that didn’t necessarily happen to Brooke + Patrick but I will say that not only did we capture this really cool couple together, (without floating away), we were stoked to get some really unique images of the two of them at the Fremont Troll, (I love how the troll has the Seahawk’s 12 painted on his face!) and Fremont Bridge plus the Olympic Sculpture Park.  You guys were awesome today and can’t wait to see you again at your wedding!!








{Our Maternity Session} – Tacoma, Washington

January 26th, 2014 : Everyday Moments

We are DELIGHTED to share with you the favorites from our recent maternity session at 32 weeks! We traveled through Tacoma, Wa on our way to another shoot in Seattle and stopped over to have some fun with friends and photog colleagues – Ike & Tash! We first met them when I was doing a photography speaking tour on the west coast about web marketing a few years back and these two were so friendly and warm we totally hit it off! Since then, they’ve exploded and done some pretty awesome stuff and we were delighted to circle back and take the opportunity to have them get some urban fun shots of us and the BELLY!

We love you Ike & Tash, thanks so much for doing this and being a part of our baby journey :)

Here’s some of our favs from the shoot!

We put together a little VIDEO slideshow of the favorites below along with some of the images!  Enjoy!

{Jessica + Sean} Oregon Engagement Photo Session

December 23rd, 2013 : Engagements

It’s funny how small and how large our little town of Bend, Oregon is.  Sean and I never really met each other but we we’re on the same cycling team in our town, (he raced in a way faster class so it’s not too surprising) but it was his sister who found us for their wedding photography!  Jessica and Sean really wanted to get some pictures in the snow, (and Wendy and I are always game for anything!!) so we went up to Mt Bachelor and wow was that a change of weather!  Those photo’s of Jessica and Sean on the chairlift we’re crazy to capture as it was blowing 30+ and so cold it took your breath away.  During the photography of images further down the mountain next to the Bachelor sign I did something I’ve never done before…..I proceeded to backup, catch my boot on a Manzanita bush and do a complete backwards summer salt while holding my camera in one hand and a bag of lenses over my shoulder.  It felt fairly graceful, (probably helped that we had about 1.5 feet of snow for padding) and surprisingly nothing got broke!  Anyway, we all had a fantastic time running around the Bend area in search of fun and uniquely creative locations that we hope you’ll enjoy!
