Caytlin and Ryan are a fantastic couple. They were married several years ago. They had a small wedding, but this was the public ceremony and reception for their friends and family at Floral Hall in Everett. They had board games, dice of many kinds, and tables themed with all the games and stories that have been important to them over the years!Read More
April and Drew had a beautiful backyard wedding. I already posted their slideshow a couple weeks ago, so these are just the individual images that I liked.
Kathie and Matt were a blast to hang out with. Very cool, fun people. So are their friends!

Elizabeth and Paul's Ezra Bessaroth Synagogue wedding in Seattle. It was a beautiful, traditional Jewish ceremony with great emotions. Very cool!
Weddings are not only about the wedding and the marriage. They are big gatherings of friends and family reunions all rolled into one. As part of my role as wedding photographer, I get to be the photojournalist for the events that happen during the celebration. Here is one image of a wedding dancer that came to celebrate with Elizabeth and Paul's wedding at Ezra Bessaroth Synagogue. Very fun!
This was taken with a Canon 6D with a 16-35mm lens set to 16mm at f2.8. The shutter speed was set to 1/125 at ISO 1250. There are two slave flashes firing to light up the dance floor. You can see one on the lightstand in the background and the second is held in my left hand.
When I was going to college, I was a journalism and photojournalism major. I love to tell stories with my camera. Whether that is a story I help make, or just one that I am recording, I want my images to have some sort of story aspect to them. This photograph of Jessica and John at their wedding at Swiftwater Cellars tells part of the story of their day. One of their guests created a beautiful slideshow for them. During the slideshow, they were quite animated as photographs came up. I love this image of John pointing at the slideshow that shows their excitement. This is one of the ways that I get to tell a story with my camera.
This image was taken in available darkness (ha, ha). I used a Canon 5D Mark III with a 85mm lens at 1.8. The ISO was 12,800 and the shutter speed was 1/160 of a second.
I met Jenny and Jiankun at their hotel room at the Fairmont Olympic Seattle. Then we took some portraits around the hotel and in the streets of downtown Seattle before heading over to their Seattle Courthouse wedding!
Jenny helping Jiankun with his tie.
I love the stairwell at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. I used a remote flash with an umbrella to light Jenny and Jiankun.
Not often do you get hugs from a Teletubby!

Beautiful images from Faith and Brandon's Shilshole Bay Beach Club wedding! Edit: Since this has been published, the name has changed from the Shilshole Bay Beach Club to the Ballard Bay Club.
Beautiful flowers on the arch with a view of the bay.
Giving the groomsmen pocket knives as a gift naturally leads to a knife fight to see who get to survive to be the best man.
All of the tables were named after their favorite hikes.
Brandon and his mom just before the wedding. Very cool.
