Film has soul. Film has feeling. Digital has it’s purpose but film satisfies me. That is why I shoot film at every wedding to create timeless photos for each couple.
The day was crisp, clear and cold … but beautiful in a way that only the Pacific Northwest can be.
Brett and Katie’s wedding at Cama Beach Cabins in Cama Park on Camano Island embodies their love of the outdoors, nature and wildlife. Hence the wonderful duck cake topper complete with wedding gown for the hen and the stylish top hat for the drake. Both Brett and Katie are loving, gracious, and kind people who wanted a tight-knit and intimate wedding by the sea. Their wedding was a joy to shoot and really made me yearn for a camping trip out to the coast. Maybe this summer!
The Cama Beach cabins were once fishing cabins built in the 1930s. It is only recently that the area has been renovated by the national park service to allow people to stay in these cabins and have events such as weddings there. If you are interested in having your wedding in a newly opened area rich with wildlife and the rugged beauty of the northwest, you should check this place out. It is amazing.
I’m proud to show these wedding photos from the Jocelyn and Austin’s elegant wedding at the Arctic Club Hotel in Seattle, WA.
Jocelyn and Austin are best friends, love each other deeply, and their wedding was both fun and classic. I love that we traveled to the Seattle Asian Art Museum to enjoy the small break of good weather for the day and get to walk the grounds and explore the art deco architecture of the museum. So much fun.
Thank you for having me as your photographer, it was a great pleasure.

Ryoko and Mike are a gentle and soft spoken couple with a deep love for each other. I loved wandering through the UW Botanic Gardens with them at Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle. The leaves were changing color and the cool air of autumn mixed nicely with the warm sun. Later, we took some photos in an architect’s house who created movie sets. It was so much fun!
We made many great photos but these ones in particular stand out to me.
You wouldn’t put a Picasso in a pile of loose canvases. You would frame it beautifully and hang it on your wall to enjoy every day. That is what a handcrafted album does for your wedding photos. We use only the best. Cypress Albums, individually handcrafted in Glendale, California by Dena Robertson and her team of expert bookbinders.
I love the new albums that just arrived at the studio and wanted to share how great they look:
Davenport Hotel, Spokane WA.
So many shoots to post and no time to do so. I promise posts longer than one frame very soon.

What a beautiful day.
Greg and Ivan traveled all the way from Hong Kong to get married in Vancouver, Canada. I’m so happy they did because their wedding was really special and I was honored to be there. With just their nearest and dearest relatives surrounding them, Greg and Ivan married at Seawalk Park on Dundarave Beach followed by dinner at the Beach House. It was a gorgeous afternoon and evening not to mention stylish and absolutely fun. I wish you both the best.
