Married: Sydney & Johnathan

I had a fantastic time shooting Sydney and Johnathan's wedding a few weeks ago. Their ceremony was at Blessed Sacrament Church, a beautiful church in the University District and the reception was held at the Lake Washington Rowing Club (talk about a great view!). I really clicked with Sydney and Johnathan immediately and it was a joy to work with them! Here's just a few of my favorites...

Johnathan proposed to Sydney at Kerry Park, so this location had some extra special meaning for them...

Hallie, their beloved and sweet dog, was also a part of the ceremony!

Married: Allie & Tony

I had the joy of photographing this beautiful wedding in Maple Valley. Some brides might have been upset that their outdoor ceremony was interupted with rain, but Allie took it in stride and they had a beautiful Seattle wedding! After all when you're this much in love, what harm can a little rain do?

It also made my day to get this response from Allie and Tony after they viewed their wedding images:

"Words can not begin to describe how incredibly pleased Tony and I are with the pictures. I'm still in awe at how perfect they are. They are exactly what we wanted. You truly do have a talent Amber, and I am so glad that we went with you. No one else could of understood the way you did what we wanted in our pictures. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

This is why I do what I do...I love capturing emotions for couples to cherish for a lifetime!

Happy 50th Anniversary!

I had the joy of being asked to take a few pictures of the McGee family to commemerate their parents' 50th wedding anniversary! I had so much fun with this wonderful family and was in awe of this wonderful couple who are still very much in love after 50 years together. I drove away from this photo session on cloud nine after being in the presence of such a beautiful, sincere and loving couple and their entire family!

Engaged: Casey & Jim

This was an especially fun engagement session for me to shoot because I am friends with the bride-to-be! Casey and I met while attending the University of Washington and have friends ever since. Jim and Casey are getting married in August and I can't wait to see my friend marry the love of her life!

Engaged: Hannah & Miles

Last week I got to photograph Hannah and Miles at their alma mater (and mine), the University of Washington. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun! They are very much at ease in front of the camera, you can easily how much they love each other. I can't wait to shoot their wedding in July 2008 at the Court in the Square!

When things aren't so lovely...

I find it ironic that I just posted about how fun it is to photograph people in love. Well, last week I got the opportunity do a commercial/architectural photo shoot for the firm my brother-in-law works for! This is where you can go when things aren't so lovely ;) Seriously though, these folks are very kind and fun. I had a great time shooting these and it was fun to do something a bit different. My brother-in-law is the handsome one on the far left (in the first shot), in case you were wondering...

Their beautifully restored office in Tacoma:
