For all you non-believers out there, I have to let you know that yes, the sun does come out in Seattle. And in full-force apparently. For the last month we have had nothing but gorgeous, sunny, and sometimes even hot, days here in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve had to adapt the way I shoot and rely on some of the tricks I learned while shooting in Arizona. It’s definitely different than the typical cloudy day we are used to, but man when you use the sun right during your photo shoots, you sure can make magic happen.

Geneva and Kellen and I headed out to Olympic Sculpture park for their engagement session last month. Both looked great, and the colors they chose were perfect. Geneva with her gorgeous orange tips and Kellen in his green pants and gold watch. Perfect touches for this bright summer evening.

Shelby and Grant were married at EM Fine Art in South Lake Union during the venue’s last weekend in business, unbeknownst to anyone at the time. Their wedding was gorgeous, and I’m ever so glad they got to experience their wedding stress-free in the lovely, raw, brick, industrial space before they shut their doors the following week (Seattle Times article here).

The day before the wedding, I spent the evening at Brave Horse Tavern with the bride and groom’s friends and family for their dress rehearsal dinner. Brave Horse was the perfect place to entertain people. Great food, great beer, shuffleboard and even a Deer Hunter arcade game that definitely got used.

The wedding was gorgeous. The flowers were amazing. The food delicious. The groom looking sharp. The bride stunning. Friends and family were so happy to be there to celebrate their marriage. And of course dance the night away.

Cute kid alert! Nathan, with his full head of awesome red hair, was just great during his family’s photo session at Bothell Landing park last month. I had never been out to this park, in Bothell just NE of Seattle, but it turned out to be a great, diverse location for a family photography session. Between the marsh lands with wooden walkways, an arching steal bridge that crossed the river, and a Nathan-approved play area, we were all set. This was the Wermes’s first photo session as a family and they did absolutely fantastic. This little family was full of laughter and smiles, I can tell they are a good team even when they are not in front of a camera.

It’s summertime! Meaning its family photo time here in Seattle. I love the challenge the comes with taking family photos and being able to deliver fun, updated images, especially when the kids are young and full of energy. I spent majority of my shoot with the McClain family at Leschi Park chasing the girls around with my lens as they danced, skipped and ran in circles. I love shooting this way, I think it is much more accurate and realistic to deliver a collection of photographs to my clients that portray the true essence of their family instead of over-posed and unnatural images. Thank you McClain family for being so fun and keeping me on my toes!
