Derek & Taylor • Proposal • West Seattle & Pike Place Market

Derek and Taylor took a vacation via road trip from Minnesota, and Taylor had no idea what surprise awaited her. Derek proposed to Taylor on the Seacrest Dock in West Seattle! After he proposed (and she said yes!) we did some photographs around West Seattle, then took the water taxi over to downtown Seattle and had some fun around Pike Place Market. They are both finishing up school and are hoping to move to Seattle once they are done. Best wishes to you both in your future together! All photos taken for Flytographer.

She said yes!

Pike Place Market
Rachel the Piggy Bank is the mascot of Pike Place Market and one of our best public fundraisers. She has been “bringing home the bacon” for The Market Foundation since 1986, raising more than $200,000 and counting … to support social services in Pike Place Market.

Giggle Fest • Portraits

When photographing people, I really enjoy the moments where people aren’t thinking about having their photo taken. Moments of pure joy, giggles, eyes closed is a bonus. I put together this portrait series from past shoots with some of my favorite natural expressions of happiness.

I had the privilege of photographing a harvest inspired farm-to-table style event at Capitol Cider featuring all local Seattle female chefs. The talent was endless and all 6 dishes were works of art. Each dish was created based on the Alpenfire Ciders they were paired with. This was the first of an event series. Feel like you missed out? Stay up to date on future events here!

Sara Harvey – Chef De Cuisine, Capitol Cider
Kaleena Bliss – Chef De Cuisine, Mistral
Bobbie Mollenberg – Sous Chef, Spur

Let’s Go on an Adventure • Isla Mujeres, Mexico

Recently I got to take a trip to Isla Mujeres to photograph a few luxury real estate rentals. While I was on the island I got a great taste of Mexican culture and am now in love with the beautiful water and relaxed vibe. Just being there makes you feel completely rejuvenated.

A few favorite restaurants:

Lola Valentina– A very solid cuisine across the board. Great for dinner and wish I had gone for brunch because the menu sounded amazing.

GreenVerde– try the fish tacos and fresh cucumber “lemonade” (made out of limes).

Elements of the Island– Delicious and very reasonably priced breakfast. Best fruit I had on the island and the people who work there are incredibly nice and accommodating as well.
