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.
Duy proposed to Jen on the beach at Golden Gardens, so they felt it would be special to incorporate some beachy photos into their engagement session too. We began their portraits at the Olympic Sculpture Park and ended at Discovery Park South Beach as the sun set. Their love is so playful, sweet and fun. Congratulations again on getting engaged. I’m really looking forward to photographing your wedding next year!
Mario booked a Flytographer session to capture his proposal to Mary Kay while they were vacationing in Seattle. He wanted a beautiful view of the city in the background, so he proposed on the water taxi dock in West Seattle. After he popped the big question (and she said yes!) Mario had planned for several of Mary Kay’s friends and his sister to fly into town and surprise her. Following a little celebrating with them, we took the water taxi over to downtown Seattle and I took some portraits of the two of them around Pioneer Square. Mary Kay really appreciated the urban landscape downtown, so we all walked around and pointed out spots we thought would be great for some photos. Teamwork! I had so much fun documenting their love and I wish Mario and Mary Kay the very best.
…and now to the photos! With all of the organizations Toni is working with, she needed some professional portraits to represent herself. You can really see her radiant personality in these photos. Loved photographing her! How gorgeous is she?
I have had the absolute privilege of photographing Heather and Kelley through many milestones in their love story. From getting engaged, to Heather being pregnant with their first little one Brooklyn, I’ve been able to capture their special moments (even after moving away from Savannah!).
I was back in the southeast again this past weekend and I got to photograph their family again. This time there are 4 of them! Check out some highlights from their family portrait session in Savannah, GA.
Christina came to me with the idea of doing a relatively ambiguous portrait session playing with “masculinity” and “femininity”. She started in the studio wearing a mens suit, borrowed from a friend, and ended the shoot in a dress. This was one of the most fun shoots to photograph!
