Photo Blog

Portfolios are great, but a story is in the sequence of images. In between the weddings and family shoots I post here, I'll toss in some photographer's thoughts about equipment, software and industry.

Christine and Marvell at the Wild Rose

Several weeks prior to Christine's wedding, we met at the Wild Rose near Arlington, WA to walk the grounds and bounce ideas of each other. I knew the moment we arrived that this would be a great place to have a wedding. The main home on the property, used by the wedding party for preparations, is surrounded by a variety of colorful flowers, a waterfall, a concret pad for the reception and a large lawn for the ceremony which has a great view of the valley. When we arrived on their wedding day, we were treated to a sun halo over the home. Christine and her girls were beginning their makeup upstairs and the guys gathered in the smaller room downstairs. We setup the "first look" to happen out on the back patio while the bridal party witnessed from above on the balcony.
