Starting to get busy with Football again. One of my favorite things about the NFL is how you never really know how things will shake out each year. The Seahawks have a bunch of young and new players who should make things very interesting to watch.
After using Canon Gear for everything for the past 23 years, I am very close to throwing in the towel and going all Fuji. But using the electronic viewfinder of mirrorless cameras is kind of challenging when it comes to sports. They feel like they are a generation away from being better in every way. We just need a quicker refresh rate to keep up with optical viewfinders. For now the 1dx Mark ii is still king-of-sport-photos-mountain, But I definitely enjoy carrying my Fuji xt3 and x100f a lot more, and for anything that isn’t moving at pro-athlete speed, they do the job!
For your viewing pleasure, a few Seahawks Pictures from 2018…
Wow, it’s been 2 years I’ve blogged… Rest assured, I’m still here, just have luckily been busy shooting and have let my poor blog and website get a little dusty. Social Media kind of made blogging obsolete for a while, but after seeing the many flaws each of these platforms have, I’m back here in my own space that I have control over. I’m definitely planning to make it an interesting place, and promise to reward you for visiting 😉
Love this moment from Susan & Pablo’s Wedding at Sole Repair Shop in Capitol Hill. They had just walked up the aisle from the ceremony and are looking at each other for the first time as an official married couple.
I just noticed people using the hashtag #momentsovermountains and I love it! Pictures of real moments at weddings are the ones that will hold the most value to you in the future. Climbing a mountain just for a photo, or hiking to some waterfall, might be fun, but I think it can sometimes be a little superficial. Like trying to create a photo that will get the most likes rather than capturing something real. I know the photos that I really value and hold dear are the ones that bring back a memory or remind me of something I felt. You can’t fake a look like the one they are giving each other!
Well it’s been way too long since I’ve blogged anything, but it’s been a busy spring shooting various projects so I’ve let the weeds grow around here a little bit. Now that wedding season is starting to get in full swing I’m trying to get back into blogging mode. We’re also still tweaking the layout of the website so please excuse any funky formatting you see.
These pictures are from a recent shoot down at Discovery Park in Magnolia. I can’t wait for Meredith & Joe’s wedding, which is coming up soon in Downtown Seattle. They have such great chemistry and it shows in front of the camera. People always ask what they need to do for engagement or wedding portraits, and it’s super simple actually. Just be yourselves and do what comes naturally and the pictures will turn out awesome!
Happy Super Bowl Sunday Everyone! Since we are closing the book on the 2015 NFL season today, I thought I’d post a few of my favorite shots from this season shooting for the Seattle Seahawks. It was another great year shooting for the Hawks, excited to see what next year brings!
Lauren and Steve’s wedding at Sand Point Country Club & Our Lady of the Lake Church. After the ceremony we headed down to Magnuson Park for the bride and groom portraits. The weather that day was on our side because we got beautiful sun light, combined with angry skies from an approaching thunderstorm. Had a great time with them and their family’s.
Ioanna & James commissioned me to photograph their intimate courthouse wedding in downtown Seattle recently. We did a few portraits before the wedding at the 4 Seasons Hotel where they got ready, then headed a few blocks across town in Uber’s to the courthouse where their friends and family met up for the ceremony.
Happy Blue Friday everyone! It was great to be back on the field with the Seahawks again a few weeks ago. It should be another great year with such a talented team out there. The story of the game (other than rainy football August wtf…) was definitely the debut of Tyler Lockett. He looked faster than anyone on the field, and returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Percy who?
