Seattle Weddings Online

swo-hearder-for-reg-blog.jpg I bought this web domain a while back that I thought could be useful. Seattle Weddings Online. It seemed like something I should pick up and do. So I asked some of my brides to write a story about their engagement, courtship or wedding adventure. I got a few responses that I thought were very cool, but not as much as I wanted. So, I've decided to not only have the bride's stories but also venue and vendor showcases over at Seattle Weddings Online. So, check it out. Write a story that I can post, recommend a vendor from your wedding for a featureor leave a comment!

Lindsey & Jason - the whole session!

I had a great time with Lindsey and Jason. It stopped raining for a couple hours, so at the last minute we decided to keep the time we had slotted. The weather was a bit dark, grey and had 20 mile per hour wind gusts. What a great day for portraits! Actually, the sky was incredibly clear after the rain and it felt like a bit of an adventure even though we were just doing portrait photography in downtown Seattle!

Andrew & Valeries Engagement Album!

We did Andrew and Valerie's engagement portraits last fall on top of Queen Anne Hill in Seattle.  This is the album we made out of the session.  The blank space is for guests to sign the book.  It will be a 6x9 european leather book with pages created with photographic prints that are mounted onto board, textured and coated.  Truly a beautiful piece of craftsmanship!  You can see all the page designs here. andrewvalerie-epalbum.jpg

This is the opening spread.  The book is 6x9, so this spread opens to 12x9.
