This past fall, I did a handful of shoots with Dutch Dog Design. As their name implies, they design various products for dogs. On our first shoot, I photographed one of their bike trailers and their hands free leash connector.
Over the past six months or so, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Plume, “an industry-leader in feather hair accessories” (you can read more about them here and here). It’s been an absolute blast working with them and all the different products they’ve developed. Below are the various types of cases they’ve designed to display their products. Some of these photos also feature their “tool kit,” which is used by salons to attach the feathers to the hair.
What a great way to end the 2011 wedding season! Even though it was October and the weather reports were iffy, the sun actually made a grand appearance for most of the day. (I shouldn’t be totally surprised… almost all the weddings I’ve photographed have been on sunny days, even in September and October. Thus far, I’ve only shot one wedding in cloudy weather.)
Garret and Tricia chose Seattle’s Museum of Flight for their ceremony and reception location. I didn’t even know you could get married there! It was so fun taking photographs around the museum; airplanes certainly make for a unique environment for wedding photos. We also took a quick trip over to the beautiful Kubota Gardens.
As a fun little tidbit, you may remember Garret and Tricia from the engagement shoot we did this past April.
What a fun wedding! The whole day was filled with both lively and touching moments as friends and family gathered together to celebrate the commitment Patricia and Ben had made to God and each other.
Patricia wore a beautiful dress, complete with the traditional buttons in the back (no quick zipper here!). Amazingly, Shannon (Patricia’s twin) was able to get Patricia all buttoned up using only a plastic fork. Amongst many other things, Shannon also made the hanging paper decorations for the reception hall (each one took an hour!). The boutonnieres and the cake toppers were also handmade by Patricia’s family members, and the antique bottles and jars were borrowed from Ben’s grandparents. Finally, during the reception, all of Patricia’s siblings joined together to do a creative little dance.
I love seeing how the everyone’s unique personalities are expressed in the details of their wedding; no two weddings are the same!
I love the beach. There’s something wonderful about walking barefoot through the sand with the sound of the waves hitting the shore. As such, I was very excited about the opportunity to photograph Leo and Alicia’s wedding at the Edmonds Senior Center, which happens to be on a beautiful beach in Edmonds, Washington. Amazingly, the Pacific Northwest lucked out with another beautifully sunny day. I was also impressed that Leo’s friend was able to Skype the entire ceremony on an iPhone so that Leo’s Peruvian family was able to view the entire thing from Peru! Technology is amazing.
