Hot Newcastle Wedding…

Hot Newcastle Wedding…

Recent pictures from a wedding at the Golf Club at Newcastle. This is a perfect example of why you should pray for rain on your wedding day 🙂 Those skies! It’s funny, I remember as a young photographer I stressed so much about the weather being just right.  Worrying about all the external things out of my control that would influence pictures. But after many years of doing this you learn how to make the best of all the typical challenges you face as a wedding photographer in Seattle.

Newcastle is always a great venue to shoot at. No matter the weather, you can always get good pictures in at least one spot. The tent of course, looks great for ceremonies, and provides shelter from wind and rain. And the Golf Course always looks great, even under stormy skies with all of that green! When the weather is sunny, and the sky is clear, it’s probably one of the best views around with the lakes and city skylines in the distance.

Another fun part of shooting this wedding was witnessing all of the great Persian Wedding Ceremony Traditions. You can see the beautiful buffet of sweets spread out on the table in front of  the  bride and groom during the ceremony. Persian weddings also feature a sweet, some by say sexy even 😉 tradition of the bride and groom each feeding one another a taste of honey from one of their fingers. This always makes for a great picture!

One of my other favorite shots, that basically illustrates the life and times in which we currently live, is the 3 dudes with their cell phones out shooting pictures. They were totally oblivious to the fact that I was shooting a picture of them as well. People often think they need photographer’s to have second shooters at their weddings. However I’ll let you in on a little secret. There will be about 40 assistant photographers toting cell phones, so not much will be missed 😉

Stefanie + Amar

Here’s one of my favorite weddings from last year at Storybook Farm in Redmond (recently featured on Stymepretty.) Stefanie and Amar were great to work with, and really did everything right. Aside from their great taste in photography 😉 they hired an awesome planner, Kirstie from Simplywed who coordinated and designed everything. Rain or shine, of which we had a little of both that day, everything looked amazing.

Golden Gardens Engagement

Golden Gardens Engagement

Very excited to announce that the website update is finally complete. We started with a different designer in October, and after a couple painful month of troubleshooting, decided to scrap everything and go another way in December. The good news is, we’re just about done, and the new design will enable some super cool new features.

This engagement session never made it to the blog, despite being one of my favorites from last year. We cruised around Ballard a little bit, and shot a few in front of the restaurant where they had their first date. I love it when we can incorporate personal touches or history to portrait shoots. After walking around Ballard for a bit, we headed down to Golden Gardens Beach Park for a little sunset portrait session near the water.

Katie & Chris – Sunset at Discovery Park

Katie & Chris – Sunset at Discovery Park

Here are a few pictures from Katy & Chris’ engagement portrait session at Discovery Park in Magnolia. Discovery Park is always such a fun place to shoot. It’s one of those Seattle Parks that is so big, you can always find a cool place to shoot, no matter what the light or weather is like.

Pro Tip – The best time for pictures is often the hour before sunset known as the “Golden Hour”. If you can plan a portrait session or carve out a few minutes during your wedding reception for some outdoor shots, you will be rewarded with the best natural light of the day.  The light gathering capabilities on the current generation of cameras (I currently shoot mainly with a Canon 1DX) are so good, that with a fast top tier lens, you can actually keep shooting for a good 15-20 minutes after the sun goes down and still get amazing naturally-lit pictures.
