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.

Cynthia and Jason at the Georgetown Ballroom

Wow! 2011 was so much fun and memorable! And what great experiences we had with Jason and Cynthia's at their wedding. They planned a full day of events starting with a Chinese tea ceremony in the morning then moving onto a larger ceremony at All Pilgrim's Church on Broadway in Seattle's Capital Hill district. It was fun to see how their dog kept so close to Cynthia even laying in her dress train during the vows. After a receiving line at the conclusion of the ceremony, a limo waiting street-side carted the wedding party off to Pike Place Market for fun photos at the gum wall in Post Alley. In the main market area, Cynthia was handed a salmon at the famous fish market then they all walked the Harbor Steps down to catch the limo to their Georgetown Ballroom reception.

Jason and Cynthia chose a coffee theme for their reception: burlap coffee bags at the entrance with guest table info, coffee deserts, centerpieces with beans and, out back, a manned coffee cart serving the guests.  Jason rode in piggybacked on Cynthia to the delight and laughter of the guests, they gave a quick thanks and started dinner. There was a ton of entertainment around the venue including an Xbox station, poker tables and a jumpy house in the back. After dinner, they projected a cute video recording of their skydiving engagement along with a slideshow of memories. Later, they did an extensively choreographed dance and, lastly, ending the night with sparklers.
