Beautiful Seattle Bride- Miss Rose














When I get through a shoot like this I can't believe that this is my job. I have the best clients in the world. They are not just clients but they become my friends. I feel like I've known this girl for ages. I'm looking forward to her wedding like she was my best girlfriend from High School! We had some technical difficulties, with our dear make up stylist...but after a bit of a delay we had about 30 minutes to shoot the whole session. It was a snap. We even took advantage of the dark to shoot a few frames in an overpass tunnel on the University of Washington campus! ROSE I love you! Thank you for everything. Tell your moms I'm still sorry for the loopty loop. LOL! SEE YOU IN A FEW WEEKS!!

SPRING in SEATTLE



On Saturday my good friend Leti flew with me to Seattle to help me for the day.  I had a few shoots up in the beautiful Pacific North West.  I know I say this every time I go to Seattle, but...I'm so in LOVE with that city.  Before we set up for the shoot we got to drive around the city, eat tons of crab (of course) and get lost a few times.  Did you know....that cherry blossoms are better in Seattle than they are in Utah?  I had no idea my friends..NO idea!   Thank you Leti, I LOVE YOU!!  I'm so excited to blog the next shoot in the morning.  It's Miss Rose ya'll, stop by, stop by!
