Jeff & Julie’s engagement shoot was so much fun and really relaxed. They have so much chemistry together and I don’t think that Casey and I had to pose them once, they just naturally look so great together. Jeff & Julie are absolutely meant for each other, they are full of life and their energy just exudes from them. They also love to travel! They will be going to Italy right before their wedding. I can’t wait for their wedding on 8-8-08 at the Woodmark Hotel it is going to be fabulous! Here are a few of my favorites, there were so many to choose from! Casey is off to San francisco to second shoot a wedding today so I am sure he will bring some photos to share when he gets back on Tuesday.

Love the sunflare in Julie’s convertable!

Couldn’t leave without a polaroid.

We shot Stacy and Andre’s session last weekend. The weather was gorgeous! We shot all around South Downtown Seattle and then headed to Murtle park for some beach photos. I guess we lost track of time, because we shot for almost 4 hours! Wow! Man was I tired the next day! Stacy and Andre will be getting married in July and we can’t wait for their wedding! I love that Andre is so involved in the wedding planning, they definitely have some cool ideas for the wedding. To Stacy & Andre: We can’t wait to see you both again. There are so many great photos I had a really hard time choosing just a selection of my favorites!

Stacy & Andre are both big sports fans. Stacy loves the Seahawks and Andre loves the lakers. Check out the one where she is covering the lakers logo. So fun!

One of my favorites! I love the feel of this shot and the cool little fort we found.

Of course we had to do some polaroids!

This is one of the last shots of the day. We almost didn’t stop to take pictures here, but the fence was too good to pass. I love the light in this shot and they look so comfortable.

Heather & Chris: Engagement

We had such a great time shooting Heather & Chris’s engagement session. They were the first people to book us for this year so it has been a long time since we saw Heather and it was our first time meeting Chris. We met Heather and her parents at Amy & Tim’s wedding last year. We drove to Yakima for the shoot and at about 12:00pm Casey and I got a little worried about the weather, it went from being really warm to having dark clouds and rain. My original intention was to shoot at the golf course but when I called up to see what the weather was like, it was snowing. The weather was crazy. We had about 15 minutes before it started snowing. We drove around to different spots trying to find a good spot, that wasn’t too wet. Heather and Chris were awesome, they were willing to lay on the wet ground with snow coming down on them! They are so cute together, I love it! Well then we left the beautiful field to find a restroom. And as we were waiting, we saw the sun come out! It was amazing! Sun, rain, snow and sun again all in a matter of hours! Crazy. I love the variety we were able to get. Heather and Chris we are so excited to shoot your wedding in August, it is going to be so much fun! We can’t wait to see you again.

Joanna & Teddy Engagement Shoot

A few weekends ago we shot Joanna & Teddy’s engagement video down at Alki beach. It was the first day that we had sunny weather in Seattle! It was almost 80 degrees. There were so many people at the beach and I was a bit worried that we wouldn’t be able to find a spot without any other people in the background. Once I saw those boats and the pier I new that we had to get them down on the beach! Of course it was really hard to get to (that is why no one else was there!). But, Joanna and Teddy were absolutely awesome and willing to go along with our crazy requests. Im sure it was pretty funny watching casey and I climb down the slippery rocks with the steadicam and bags of equipment! Thanks Joanna & Teddy! We had a great time with you and we can’t wait to shoot your wedding in August!


After we were done at the first location we headed over to another part of the beach which was very cool as well. I love the reflections!

And after eating dinner we headed back towards part of the beach where we could see the sun setting! yay!

Chau & Dave are so full of energy and love for each other. They were so laid back and made our job so easy! We also filmed their engagement video so stay tuned for their video! Hope you like them guys!


We headed to Greenlake first to take pictures with their puppy Taylor.

Practicing their dancing skills!

Then we headed to UW and dodged the rain to take advantage of the beautiful blossoms!

After the rain the light was amazing!
