Flash Only Hotel Portraits

Jan

05

When Tiffany contacted me to take more wedding portraits with her family I was booked the day she wanted me on short notice! With her trust, she decided to hire me for whenever I could make it to the hotel where we did photos of just her and Tony the day they eloped. WELL AFTER DARK. This meant this would be my first 100% flash portrait gallery.

I warned them that I had never done a full session with flash only and that I couldn’t guarantee any sort of specific results for flash only formals. I just promised them my best and they were so trusting and happy to hire me for what I could do!

Their first round of photos were so beautiful, I knew I had a reputation to stand up to! I’m just now seeing that I didn’t make it to blogging their first round of photos on the day they eloped! I will definitely be posting those soon as well.

After eloping, they decided they wanted to come back to the hotel for more portraits with Tiffany’s new hair cut and more of their family. Only Tiffany’s parents were able to make it for the elopement!

Nervous but excited, I set up my one flash set-up and went to work with everything I knew! Before I knew it I was sharing the back of the camera and so excited to get home to edit.

Thank you for trusting me and hiring me a second time, Tiffany & Tony! You are such a joy to work with and I love the way you both challenge and encourage me to try new things!

I’m looking forward to many more exclusively flash galleries to come!

Venue: Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle’s Southport

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
