One-Year Celebration

Virginia and Keith, one of our 2006 couples, recently celebrated their one year anniversary and wanted to mark the occasion with portraits. I visited their new house (congratulations, Virginia and Keith) and took great shots of them together with their puppy, Jesse. It was great to have the chance to reconnect with them and to continue their story!

Wallflower Accepted Into Exclusive Guild

We recently received more good news when we learned that this offbeat image that Scott took at a client's wedding this summer earned him entry into the Wedding Photojournalist Association's exclusive Artistic Guild!

The guild, which celebrates exceptional skill in enchancing photographs with the use of Photoshop, is open only to those who have won awards in the guild's international contest. Scott placed seventh with this image of Christy and Mike at Alderbrook Resort in Union, Washington, and is now one of only two photographers in the entire state to be invited into the Artistic Guild. Congratulations, Scott!

We've been sucked back into the fast lane since our return from Maui and are long overdue on posting our pictures! You can see the highlights on our website (Fine Art: Gallery: Maui) but I'll share some of our favorites here, too. Above is a banyan tree along one of the hiking trails we trekked. They look amazing, and so different from any of the trees we have around here.

Always a sucker for texture and reflections, this is also one of my favorites:
And I can't help but love this wacky spider, which is unlike any other I've seen before.

There are a lot more great shots on our website, including many from Haleakala (by far our favorite spot to go, photographically speaking). Take a peek!

New Awards for Wallflower

We were pleased to learn this morning that Wallflower Photography placed twice in the Wedding Photojournalist Association's end-of-year 2006 contest!

The photo above, taken at Jeff and Amy's wedding at Discovery Park in Seattle in July, placed fifth in the Ceremony category. The photo below, taken at Dustin and Luke's wedding (our Amazing Race All-Star), placed eighteenth in the Scene Setter category.

This international association is jam-packed with talent and hundreds of photos are received for each contest, so this really is quite an honor! Congratulations to all the winners; there were so many excellent photos submitted.
