One of my favorite wedding accessories I have seen over the last couple of years is the personalized wedding dress hanger. They make a great bridal shower gift and I wish I had known about them when my close friends got married because I would have had one made for each and every one of them! You can have whatever you like written in the wire. I find most people put their married name if they plan on changing it. However, I think a cute nick name or even just Bride would be great. You could even get them as a bridesmaids gift with each attendants name or nickname. There are quite a few people selling them on Etsy these days, here is a link to one of the bigger vendors, as of this post it looks like there is a sale going on!
It was the first time I have shot a wedding at Heritage Hall. It is on the small side, but great for an intimate wedding. There is a very well manicured garden as well. Additionally it is right below a large park and a two minute walk to the beach and lots of cute shops and restaurants. It was a gorgeous day for a wedding. The celebration was short and sweet. Here are a few of my favorite details of the day.
I had a great time a couple of weeks ago testing out the studio with Tiffeny. We even used the hair blower! I have to say that this is a laugh riot! It somehow does make things cooler. I don't know what it is about having the wind in your hair, but it makes people smile.
I love shooting outdoors too, but having the option to shoot indoors in Seattle is important. As well all know, it still rains at rather unpredictable moments, even in the spring. I wanted to try out the lighting and do some headshots that would be something you could use for LinkedIn or a website bio page.
Forbes insists that two of the top mistakes people make on LinkedIn are not having a picture and not having an accurate recent picture that makes you look professional. You can read more about it here: http://www.forbes.com/sites/learnvest/2013/03/04/8-mistakes-you-should-never-make-on-linkedin/
Every photographer has a personal project that they do for the love of it. Mine is Lucha Libre. Specifically following the luchadors of Lucha Libre Volcanica. I have been to almost all of their shows and yet it still amazes me every time. I still hold my breath every time they leap from the top cords of the ring. Here are a few of my favorites from their most recent show, the Taco Libre Showdown at the Mobile Food Truck Rodeo in the International District. See more about Lucha Libre Volcanica here: http://luchavolcanica.com/ You too can become a luchador!
Kerry Park in Seattle WA has to be one of the most popular spots in the city for engagement photos and wedding pictures. On any sunny day you can drive by and see people taking their photo with the famous Space Needle. The truly great thing about he spot is that there are many other hidden places to take even more pictures. So get the Space Needle photo with your love and then take a little walk around to see what else is near by. A small park only a couple blocks away.

Have a little fun. Make an afternoon of it!
