It was such a joy to capture Ben Heller and Kayti Krepel’s marriage! I already knew them a bit from our church in Seattle, but I felt like I got to really see them at their wedding. The service was a beautiful celebration of their relationship and their faith. I also loved all the hippy details that made their day special: outside at Parsons Gardens, barefoot, acoustic, and full of color. And did I mention that the entire wedding party decided to climb up into a tree for photos? Awesome.
Last week I shot an MFA show for one of my sculpture teachers, Lisa Rickey. Her piece, “Reflection,” is currently on display at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle. She made the group of giant metal pillows by inflating flat stainless sheet steel (sealed on the edges) with pressurized gas. In Lisa’s work, I particularly appreciate her interest in unique material behaviors. In “Reflection” she uses the specular properties of stainless steel to create a sort of visual conversation amongst the pillows and their environment. I find it fitting that her orignal title was going to be “Pillow Talk.”
After seeing her brother’s engagement pictures Julia and her fiancé Elliot decided to book an engagement session with me at Discovery Park. The weather was the warmest day so far this year, which made jumping in the ocean relatively comfortable. It was an honor to capture their quiet playful love for each other.
I shot Joe and Ashley’s engagement photos at Magnuson Park in Seattle. They are a really energetic (not to mention mushy!) couple and the weather was fantastic, so the shoot was really fun.
For their pictures, I spent a bit of time experimenting with new editing techniques in post-processing. I’d love feedback.
A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to do some candid event photography for Frazier Healthcare Ventures at their annual holiday party. It was a neat opportunity to capture a more intimate side the company. The pictures are just being distributed internally, so I was basically their “family photographer” for the day.
All images were shot using limited available light at ISO 6400. Lenses used were 17-35 mm f/2.8, 24-70 mm f/2.8, and 50 mm f/1.4
Chris and Jenniey celebrated their marriage with a beautiful traditional ceremony at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption in Seattle. I felt really welcomed by their family and wedding party, which made the day very rewarding and enjoyable. The tone may have been just a touch mellower than “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” but it was still an adventure all the same!
