Prague & Olomouc on Film

Prague & Olomouc on Film

I'm terrible at sending in my film, because I'm always frustrated to pay for the shipping. So I stock it up until I have a few rolls, which can take a while in the winter. I just got a batch of scans back from late last fall and early this spring! When I crossed the border from Germany into the...

Natalie & Sam’s Seattle Engagement

Natalie & Sam’s Seattle Engagement

I'm working hard to catch up on blogging! My wedding season starts this weekend, and I'm so excited for every wedding I've got this year. Back in April, I went over to Seattle to shoot Natalie & Sam's engagement session. Like I said in their preview post, the weather was a little crazy. But...

Tyrone Wells at The Bartlett

It's a little known fact that, back when I was in college, I dated a guy in a local band. I was also at that point in my obsession with photography that I felt like I needed to carry my camera everywhere and photograph everything. I have, in the years since, purged a lot of terrible photography...

Joel & Dan’s Seattle Wedding

Joel & Dan’s Seattle Wedding

Joel & Dan were married last August at Within Sodo, and ever since I drove home (with the windows down) at midnight after their wedding, I've been trying to find the words to describe their wedding. And months later, I don't feel like I'm any closer to doing these wonderful men justice. Joel...

Out of the Office

Out of the Office

This week, I'll be out of the office, visiting Vancouver, BC and Portland, OR. I'll be checking in on my email occasionally, and I'll be back next Monday. If you're in Vancouver or Portland, let's grab coffee! Or take some photos, because I'm so excited to visit a couple of my favorite PNW cities...

Spring is Here

Spring is Here

Today is the first day of spring and it's supposed to be 64 degrees! It's been a long, hard, winter. Not necessarily cold or snowy, but gray and dreary. Next winter, I'm planning to get away for a vacation to somewhere sunny and warm. The last couple weeks my brain has been a little scattered, so...

This is Why I Travel

This is Why I Travel

I have this habit of starting posts and then...nothing. I'll get a paragraph or two, or sometimes I save a draft with a two sentence idea.  This post, I started in Alaska. I'd just been on a glacier cruise in Wittier, and I was in awe, to say the least. And yet, I felt like it needed more....

Let’s Get Personal

Let’s Get Personal

In my efforts to bring back the personal posts, I've got some random thoughts for you today. Happy Friday! Film Photography: My mom had a huge Minolta camera when I was growing up. She'd take pictures of us on vacation and we'd laugh over the images, months later, when we finally got them...

Germany in the Fall

Germany in the Fall

This is the first time I've been to the Rheingau in a season other than winter. It was also my 8th trip to Germany (in eight years). It seems like a lot, but at the same time, seems like I've barely spent any time there at all. Considering four of my trips to Germany came during the time I lived...

Paris in October

Paris in October

Oh Paris. I wanted to love you. I wanted you to be the city I dreamed of, the city that inspired to me travel when I read about you so many years ago. But, you're not that city. You're great and you're quirky and you're filled with fun things, but we just didn't jive. My heart wasn't in it. It's...
