Flash Only Hotel Portraits



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

They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
