Stephanie & Kalani | Engagement Portraits at Pike Place Market!

I had a great time with Stephanie and Kalani at Pike Place Market.  We met just before sunset and did some night portraits.

Stephanie and Kalani’s band portrait.  I used two flashes (one directed at each of them) for this one.

Debbie & Philip | Engagement Portraits at Pike Place Market!

Debbie and Philip met me down at Pike Place Market  for some engagement portraits.  I had a great time with them and we found some locations by the market that I hadn’t been to before.  Very cool!

For this one, I used a flash to overpower the ambient light on a loading dock.

Pike Place Market

Here are a couple random images from Pike Place Market. I hate being late, so I was running through the market (as best I could through the slow moving pedestrians) to make sure I was on time to my portrait session with Jen and Gregg. Therefore, I took two images. Amazingly enough, I liked them both!Pike Place Market performers

Wedding Photographs and a Cookbook!

One of the great things about being a wedding photographer is the great variety of people I get to meet. Over the course of the years I've met doctors, lawyers, asphalt layers, seafood company executives, Microsofties, Googleites, Yahooligans, Amazonians (the book selling kind) tug boat owners, mechanics, diamond brokers, Hell's Angels members, sports stars, talk show hosts and the occasional reality tv personality. What I love even more is when people stay in touch. One case of that is Shanna Follansbee. She lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband, but her family lives in Eastern Washington. She called me about a year ago because she was writing a cookbook and needed some help with the photographs. I helped her process the images for her book. Also, on a trip to Seattle, she had me take some photographs for her book. Last week, I received the final version in the mail with my photographs on the front and back covers. Not only did she sign it for me, but she even thanked me on the dedication page! How cool. You can buy her fabulous book at Amazon. It includes some amazing recipes. One I'm looking forward to trying is the Seared Salmon with Fresh Corn Cakes and Avocado Salsa, but I might have to try the Grilled Mexican Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Goat Cheese-Stuffed Poblano and Tomatillo Sauce. Yum!
