Event Photography

I am not a full-time wedding photographer, but I have shot my share of weddings (see a few of them below), and I have been known to make a bride look beautiful and a groom look dashing…. Please contact me, as I am more than happy to answer any questions you have about my personal style (photojournalistic), rates (usually affordable), or anything else on your mind!

Lina and David’s Wedding at Sunset Hill Park

David’s family and I go way back to our high school days, so when he asked if I might bring my camera along to take “a few photos”, let’s just say that it sort of turned into a full-blown wedding shoot.

The ceremony took place on a simple stretch of grass called Sunset Hill Park in north Ballard, overlooking Puget Sound on a gloriously bright summer afternoon. A beautiful set of vows kept everyone’s eyes misty, while temperatures in the low 90s set sweat glands to working overtime. Cooling clouds finally rushed in, but Lina and David continued to shine.

A Wedding in the Snow for Elizabeth and Ken

It was a snowy winter’s day… Just what snow-lovers Elizabeth and Ken were hoping for when they scheduled their wedding in January at Pine River Ranch in Leavenworth, WA. Family and friends made the white-knuckle trek over Stevens Pass to join them in celebration, and were rewarded with the splendor of a unique ceremony in the Cascade Mountains.

Warm spirits (and good beer) triumphed over chilly temperatures (and a wind-toppled log beam), and a lovely time was had by all. Don’t forget to check out my time-lapse video of the ceremony set to music by Journey, Elizabeth’s favorite band of all time.

A Courthouse Wedding for Cordula and Mike

There’s something very sweet about a courthouse wedding. Short, simple, and often shared with your closest family members. Cordula and Mike asked me to record moments from their special day, first with a portraiture shoot at Golden Gardens, and then their civil marriage ceremony at the King County Courthouse in downtown Seattle.

The courthouse was otherwise closed for Veterans Day (11/11/11!), but we were ushered through security with a humorous patdown from the single guard, then it was up several floors to the judge’s modest chambers with a sunset view of Puget Sound and Smith Tower. With immediate family looking on, Cordula and Mike exchanged their vows. A happy wedding doesn’t need much more than that.
