As a photographer, one of my most rewarding jobs is photographing work created by other artists. As we discuss how to render their work visually, I get a special window into their intent and inspiration. It’s like a VIP backstage pass to an art show.
In Bobbi’s work, I love how exuberantly she explores what is possible with color, pattern and texture. Her journey as a painter is young, which fosters an exciting freshness. This set of photos feature Bobbi’s drawings and acrylic paintings from Spring of 2012.
James’ and Cynthia’s wedding on Chuckanut Mountain was a beautiful picture of their love for the forest, their community, and each other. I appreciated how the whole day told their story of simple faith, healing, and a new life together. Congratulations and thank you for sharing your wedding with me!

My sister’s son Tobias is probably the chillest, most good-natured little guy I’ve ever known and (with the help of his cousin) he’s been teaching me to appreciate babies in a whole new way. I love this exchange between him and his dad over Easter weekend.

Plus a bonus… his new trick is to crawl at you as fast as he can until he bonks into your forehead.
This summer we had the joy of welcoming a new nephew, Peregrine Kenneth Emmanuel Nelson. So far we know that he loves sunshine and that he has the same wrinkles on his forehead as me. His name means wanderer or pilgrim.
Congratulations Andrew and Rachel!
James McGeathey and Tiffany Turner had a small, beautiful ceremony with family and friends at Elizabeth Park in Bellingham. Throughout the day, I enjoyed James’ fun, playful attitude and Tiffany’s creative attention to all the details. There was definitely a classy, creative vibe to the celebration, and I was especially impressed by the wedding cupcakes. You are both supported by your friends and family, and I wish you the best in your new marriage!
Last month my wife and I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding of another Bellingham couple, Niki Metzger and Erik Favro. They had a beautiful ceremony at the Squalicum Boathouse on Zuanich Point. We especially appreciated how they crafted a meaningful wedding that reflected their unique quirks and personality (plus their love for the northwest).
You guys are great together! Thanks for sharing your day with us.
This last Christmas break, I got to capture my sister in law’s wedding and New Years Eve reception/party. The weather was cold and rainy, which made the outdoor pictures an adventure, but we all survived! Zach and Tori were really relaxed, so I think that rubbed off on everybody else. I may be biased, but I think their reception was also the funnest I’ve ever been too. Congratulations on getting off to a great start!
