ath*lete {ath'let}, n. Rick

I am an admirer of Chris and Greg over at Motofish Images. Their work is incredible! Very creative! So, I asked Rick if he would be a willing subject and let me have some fun playing around with this kind of photography. My shots don't compare to Motofish Images, but I still had fun trying!

Rick is an amazing athlete. He's been competing in triathlons since 1996, and has 10 overall wins. He did an Ironman race in Couer d' Alene in 2006. He is also on the "Raise the Bar" team - they compete in triathlons, running and cycling events.

Brandon and Jessica's Wedding

A beautiful bride, a handsome groom, a gorgeous location and view - all the makings of a perfect day for Brandon and Jessica. I don't think I've ever seen two people so in love. Their ceremony was beautiful! They each wrote their own vows - Brandon had the entire place in tears (including me!). It was just a beautiful day and I'm lucky I got to be a part of it!

I was told Seattle Magazine was going to use one of my images from the Humane Society's Tuxes and Tails event - I was nicely surpised to find they had used two of my images!! This is very exciting for me to be published in this magazine. I hope there are more to come...........

Brandon and Jessica's Engagements

Brandon knows my hubby through work, and when they asked me to shoot their wedding, I was ecstatic! I got to meet them for the first time to shoot some engagement shots down at a waterfront park that is special to them. They are the nicest couple! and you can see how in love they are! And, as a bonus, Brandon gets to become a step dad to the adorable miss "M"! She was hilarious during their shoot! Every time we did kissing shots, she would stand beside me and say, "OMG!! That is so gross!" We are looking forward to your wedding day!

Josh and Diedre's Wedding!

What a beautiful couple! I am so excited that I had the pleasure of documenting their wedding day. They have been working hard all Spring and Summer to get their backyard ready for their special day - and it was gorgeous! It couldn't have been a more perfect setting. Here's a sneak peek for the bride and groom. Thank you for sharing your day with me!

Waiting to see his bride for the first time........

I have to give a special thanks to my husband who went as my assistant - he helped carry equipment, helped with lighting, brought me water and food and let me boss him around! I also put a camera in his hands as my second shooter, and he did a great job! The last three photos are his!
