Last weekend I was up in Seattle hanging out with Monique and Bob for their engagement photos. I was excited to have a photo session that wasn’t going to be in 100 degree temperatures…I was way off. Who knew Seattle would be melting that weekend. Are you kidding me? Record-setting heat the weekend I cruise into town for a shoot, nice.

Monique and Bob were both very good friends of mine in high school, they just happened to be at separate high schools. So it wasn’t until after high school they actually met. A group of my friends all went to grab a bite at Red Robin and then it happened…a Banzai Burger brought them together (wow guys, don’t let me write your vows).

Let’s get to the photos. We started out at the Arboretum near downtown Seattle, I’ve always wanted to shoot there after growing up in the area so I took advantage of the opportunity and we ended up with some great photos.

You know how I knew it was gonna be a great shoot? This was my first snap of the day…

You don’t want to know what I said to Bob to get him to smile here…

After the Arboretum, we headed to the Japanese Gardens for more photos. If you haven’t been there, GO! I can’t believe that was my first time in the gardens, the entire place had a fairytale feeling to it, perfect for photos of two people in love…

See you guys at your wedding in September! Very excited for it, and just to tease all you readers…there may be a ferry boat involved at the wedding :)

I had a great time hanging out with Theresa, Brent, and their new baby girl, Reese! you probably remember the photos of Reese from when she was born a few months ago. Well, now it was time for her formal photography session! After a few photos around the house, we headed out to Claremont, California just outside my soon-to-be studio and found some fun spots for photos. Reese braved the heat and we ended up with some great shots!

What an amazing shootout! I met up with some of the best wedding photographers in Southern California for the SoCal Photog Shootout in San Juan Capistrano and it turned out to be far beyond my expectations. I had an incredible time shooting with all my new friends and we all came out of there with some great shots and tons of new photo knowledge. Rob, Jasmine, Hanssie, Michelle, Matt, Kristen, Doug, Henry, Michael and Anna…you guys were awesome! Oh, and I have to give major props to our all our models, you ROCKED!

I can’t wait for the next shootout!!
