Wendy and Chris had a beautiful day for the wedding at Willows Lodge in Woodinville. We started with getting ready images in the lodge. Then we took portraits around the grounds with them, their small wedding party and then their family. They had an outdoor wedding in the beautiful gardens that are shared by Willows Lodge and the Herb Farm restaraunt. The cocktail hour was also outdoors. The food at Willows Lodge is always excellent. Later in the evening they had dancing, smores in a fire pit and finally they escaped into the night.Read More

I love taking photographs in unusual places. This one was taken in the parking lot because I loved the way the tree was glowing as it was backlit by the sun.
Here is another example of the creamy bokeh produced by the Canon 135mm f2L.
The wedding took place at the smaller of the two wedding ceremony venues at Willows Lodge.

One of the greatest compliments that people give to me is not the words they say. It is when they come back to me for more books or prints. Patrick, as a gift for his bride came back to get a large canvas gallery wrap for their anniversary. Very cool. Here is the image that he chose. It was taken near Willows Lodge in Woodinville where they were married. Whenever I compose an image like this, especially when it is in black and white, it reminds me of W. Eugene Smith’s A Walk To Paradise Garden. One of my favorite images of all time by one of the people that first inspired me to become a photographer.

We had a few extra minutes in the hotel room, so we took some bridal portraits of Noella in her saree.
Noella and Niraj met at Michigan. Their wedding reception had something of a theme.
Willows Lodge has beautiful grounds for portraits.
I had fun playing with the flare in this image of Noella.
Shaken, not stirred.
