Seattle Family Photography | The Masuda Family | Washington Areboretum

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Fall is all about family portraits!  It’s my favorite time to take photos because of the beautiful changing leaves.  The Masuda Family took advantage of the very last good weekends in Seattle to get a set of photos taken.  The newest member of the family, Leo looks like he had a great time!  A beautiful setting for a beautiful family!!!

Seattle Wedding Photography | Quynh+Paul | Lake Union Crew

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Weddings like this don’t come around often.  When the bride is dressed in her wedding gown…and also dressing the tables with table cloth.  When rounds and rounds of Costco sized bottles of liquor are brought into the venue.  And when one of the groomsmen falls into Lake Union dancing to All 4 One’s “I Swear”.  Yes, I knew I was looking forward to Quynh+Paul’s wedding for a reason!

Quynh+Paul didn’t want a fancy wedding.  Their wish for their wedding day was to have good food with good family and friends.  And these are the weddings that I love to shoot.  Most of Quynh+Paul’s friends, to this day, are from middle and high school.  You have to admit, there’s something to be said about people who maintain close with high school friends.  They’re the type of people that seems to always be there when you need them.  It was quite an honor to be there with Quynh+Paul on their special day.  Since I’ve known Paul for such a long time, it was heart warming to see him so happy.  For as long as I’ve known Paul, he’s the type of guy that knows how to love.  And he’s found, what I think, is his equal.

Seattle Engagement Photography | Linh+Celso | University of Washington and Gasworks Park

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

It took several months of emailing for Linh+Celso to finally meet one another.  It started as what Linh thought was a networking opportunity, but turned slowly, rightfully, into true love.  It’s the way they talk, not just to each other, but about one another, that makes people like us who have only been around them for a short amount of time, know that they will make it as a couple.

Linh is the organized planner and Celso is a fabulous artist in his own way.  Together, they are planning for one of the year’s greatest weddings.  Linh+Celso are both connected with their heritage, and want to respectfully honor their culture on their wedding day.  They also both have families from all around the US and the world coming to their special day.  It will be a day filled with tradition, reunion, and celebration.

We cannot wait for their wedding, but in the meantime, enjoy a sneak peek of their engagement session below.

Seattle Engagement Photography | Jessica+Joko | Snoqualmie+Seattle

Monday, February 18th, 2013

One day before I turned off my phone in a movie theater before the movie was scheduled to start, I noticed a new inquiry for engagement photos in our inbox.  I didn’t think much of it and wanted to tend to it once I got home after my date night with my husband.  When I turned my phone back on after the movie, I noticed that this inquiry was a little different from the ones we’ve received before.  This one was from Indonesia!

A few months of planning via email, Facebook, and Skype, Chris and I finally got to meet Jessica+Joko in person.  The couple is scheduled to marry later in 2013, but wanted to take their engagement photos first in Seattle.  We were a little nervous about the shoot because it was a two day event and Jessica had very specific ideas of what she liked and wanted to achieve in her photos.  But as soon as we started on day one, Chris and I realized how easy and great it was going to be.  Jessica+Joko are perfect together and they were such a joy to work with.  Being from Indonesia, they were quite surprised at how cold Seattle can be, but they were good sports throughout the two days.  We are so thankful to have met this International traveling couple, and so flattered to have shot their engagement for them to remember the rest of their lives.  Enjoy this sneak peek of their photos below!

There's no snow in Indonesia so Jessica+Joko made sure they had their fill of it while they were here.

Emily+Mom+Dad | Seattle Portrait Photography | Washington Arboretum

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

Emily is a small lady with a great personality.  A baby that don’t fuss or cry when forced to wake up and look cute for the cameras in the freezing fall weather.  Emily just turned one year old about a month ago and we hope she learns to walk soon.  Can you imagine this cutie pie running around clumsily?  It would be the cutest thing.  Enjoy Emily with her Mom+Pop in their sneak peek below.  Oh and one more thing, I think Mom resembles a certain famous Chinese movie/pop star.  What do you think?  Enjoy!

Can we get a “Holla!” for the Holidays!?!?

Monday, October 8th, 2012

It’s hard to believe it, but the leaves are turning color, frost is starting to appear on your vehicles as the mornings turn cooler, and you’re dusting off your boots tucked away in the back of your closet.  That’s right folks, fall is here to stay and before you know it, we’ll be chasing down turkeys and hanging up Christmas lights in no time.

Chris and I get so stressed when it comes to this time of year because in addition to everything we need to do to get ready for the holidays, we are always worried about sending out Christmas cards.  Which picture should we use?  Should we take new pictures?  If so, when should we take them?  And where should we take them?  We stress about this and before we know it, the opportunity to send cards has passed.

That’s why this year we’ve decided to make it easier for YOU!  Introducing Cindi+Chris’ first annual “Holla for the Holidays!”

We have set aside one day in early November (when the leaves are the most beautiful) at the Washington Park Arboretum for 30 minute mini sessions.  Weather-permitting, we’re planning for the 3rd, and are saving the 4th just in case weather doesn’t cooperate.

So come on down, spend a little time with us at the park, and knock out those holiday pictures!  Time slots are limited so email/facebook/tweet/messenger pigeon us to save your spot!

Seattle Engagement Photography: Kathy+Angelo

Monday, April 9th, 2012

They say to find your dream job, find something you love.  To us, the other half of the secret formula is finding people you love to do it with.  Now, I suppose you could say Cindi and I get along pretty well, but we feel incredibly blessed that we have the most awesome couples to work with.  Love ‘em love ‘em love ‘em.

Meeting Kathy+Angelo was like getting together with old friends.  At our initial “potential client” / “potential photog” meeting, they invited us into their home on a typical sprinkly-but-sunny-Seattle-Sunday-afternoon, and we ended up chatting for hours on everything.

It’s no wonder our shoot went the same way.  We spent the day all around Seattle, laughing, joking, and goofing off (you can tell they like to squeeze the fun out of life, and don’t sweat the small stuff — like the threat of rain we faced all week).  We even had a lunch break in between (you can tell they also like to squeeze the food out of life, being a lot like us and planning to-do’s around to-eat’s).  It’s was just like heading out with our besties, except somewhere in there pounded out several gigabytes of photos.

Seattle Pup Photography – Winston+Bear

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

Winston+Bear are good friends.  Probably more considered brothas from different mothas.  Winston belongs to Jackie, one of our upcoming 2012 brides, so I’m sure you’ll be meeting more of his fab family soon.  But for now, just his buddy Bear will have to do.  Bear belongs to Jackie’s future mother-in-law, and these two chaps get along just swimmingly.

We took a walk through the University of Washington campus one chilly Saturday morning, and let these two run free amongst the last batch of college folk cramming for pre-holiday finals.  These two fit right in with their purposeful gait, sleepy stares, and in the case of Winston… dashing fall sweater.  So debonair!

Winston in his debonair sweater.

Bear is just so adorable with those big black eyes.

Awww just look at that face!

Again, just look at that face!

BFF's for life!

These little boys got into their treat bag!

And for good measure, my little boy Chewy!  He also came along for the ride and had fun watching his fellow pooches model.
