Lake Washington is the second largest natural lake in the State of Washington. At its longest, it stretches 22 miles. In the summertime, you can find Seattleites swimming in it, lounging near it, watching the Blue Angels fly over it, and most especially spending sunny days on their boats in it.  The folks over at […]

Weddings

I first met Ciriia when she arrived with Elliott to a friend’s wedding I was photographing. As I captured photos of the guests, I remember noticing the intense sweetness with which they looked at one another. As any photog would, I captured it on camera. Years later, I saw them here and there at various […]

Hailey & Chris – Golden Gardens

Hailey and Chris met while grocery shopping at Safeway. Yep, that’s a thing that happened. Can you even believe it? I certainly couldn’t. The fates do get into all sorts of funny things, don’t they? When we first met up at Golden Gardens on a chilly Pacific Northwest evening, I anticipated some sweet moments, after […]
