Adriana and Maurizio had a beautiful Seattle wedding on MC Skansonia Ferry on Lake Union. Everything happened on the boat. They saw each other for the first time when she walked down the aisle. The amazing views across the lake and the fantastic group of friends and family made for an amazing evening.Read More

I love Michael's reaction to seeing Brooke.

Michael played college football at Georgetown, so a football photograph was a must.

Brooke and Michael had a beautiful Skansonia wedding on Lake Union. Here is their first dance.
This was taken with a Canon 6D and 16-35 at 27mm, f2.8, 1/160, ISO 1600. There were two 600EX-RT flash units with one camera left and one camera right.
I've been thinking for a while now that I want to start blogging more often with a single photograph with more detail about that one image. So I am starting today with this evening portrait of Elisabeth and Jeff.
After their wedding, Elisabeth, Jeff and I decided to sneak away for a few minutes. I actually love doing this. The couple is relaxed, happy, and usually ready for some time away from all the attention. My goal with this portrait was to create a photograph that showed the bond and feelings between Elisabeth and Jeff. To do that, I put them into a casual pose that put them quite close together. Then I told them to talk to each other and walked away. I took photographs as they talked. Getting a couple on their wedding day to connect and share their feelings with each other is just that easy. It is a joyous day in their lives.
For this image, I used an 85mm lens set at f2. I pretty much always have the 85mm on one of my cameras. The composition was created by seeing the horizontal line of the benches and getting low to make it a diagonal line that leads to the subject. Then I put the couple on the right hand third of the image.
Elisabeth and Jeff chose the beautiful MV Skansonia for their Seattle wedding. What a beautiful and uniquely Seattle wedding venue! Elisabeth and Jeff are a great and fun couple. Elisabeth and Jeff seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day at Gas Works Park
