We met for a couple portrait session the day before the wedding. Never know what is hiding behind a warehouse.
Isn't that a cool back ground? It is the warehouse floor. We used the warehouse for portraits also.
Yep, taken in the warehouse. Valerie was so brave to lay on top of new sorting table. She is beautiful.
They have an adorable son and he has the most engaging laugh...They are the cutest family.
Wedding day. In all it craziness, Jason and Valerie were able to sneak out and spend some time together before the wedding. I love the way they look at each other, it tells the whole story.
This is a sassy shot of Valerie out side, cool shadow. This shoot was taken by Shaylene Rene' (my fabulous assistant photographer)
People hate showing emotion, but for me it is the best part of any ceremony. It is real!!
Laugher is the best.
The bridal party butterfly's fluttering around.
If you want to make a groom sweat, ask him to bustle his wifes dress.
Boys and bubbles, who could resist this darling shoot.
And then there are shoes!! Another irresistible shot.
Isn't this series great!! Valerie's face is so funny and Jason is so proud.
This is the prefect way to end the night. A hug for the photographer. I love all my brides and grooms.

People often ask me how long I have been a photographer. I would have to say all my life. I have always looked at the world as if it is a photograph. Did I study photography? Yes. Spending time in a black and white lab without utilizing any automatic features teaches you to really understand photography.
On this blog you will find my most recent work, as well as tips on how you can get better pictures from your photography experience. I've adopted the mantra "See the Unseen", a phrase meant to describe the results I want to provide for each and every customer. I love creating an image that others don't see and when they look at the back of my camera they say WOW!!
I am lucky enough to two beautiful daughters who are willing and able to be my models. And boy can they model. Here are a few of the many images that were taken of my "brides". We all love photography and creating beautiful images.
Meet my youngest daughter, Shaylene, who is not a bride, and has no plans to be so anywhere in the near future. She is however a fantastic photographer who acts as my second shooter throughout the Summer.
I've made it a habit to comb the auctions on ebay looking for dresses to use during our sessions together. The dresses I find might not be up to date in style, but they usually tend to lend a classic beauty to the photos.
Hanging out on the edge of a cliff at the Columbia Gorge is no big deal for Shaylene by now. Bridals are going to be a piece of cake for her when it's her turn for her real bridal shoot.
My oldest daughter Jenna is going to be married this October. We arranged to have a bridal shoot in Rome while we were in Europe visiting her in-laws. There are many more images that I am very excited to show you from this shoot. I'll have them ready to post here in a few days. You can visit Jenna's blog to learn more about the dress that made this shoot possible!
Thanks for visiting. Please leave me a comment and let me know how you found me!
