Gaby Borromeo: Snoqualmie Falls

It was Easter weekend and my friend, Gaby Borromeo, was back home for a little while and it was great seeing her again. She is one of the most talented people I know and is an incredible singer that is currently residing in New York. We had talked about doing a photo shoot sometime and Snoqualmie Falls was the perfect location. The forecast was rainy (which is to be expected in WA), but Gaby was totally down for anything and was a trooper.

We arrived at Snoqualmie Falls and with the help of my assistant and Gaby's cousin, Michelle, we all hopped over the fence and made our way down to the base of the waterfall. If you haven't ever been to Snoqualmie Falls before, I highly recommend it. It's an incredible sight and is the perfect spot to take a photo and show off to your friends.

Once we reached the waterfall, the rain was drizzling ever so slightly. The sun was lighting up the clouded sky making for a light overcast day. If you know me, I love this type of light for photography because it casts such even and flattering light on your subjects and environment. Gaby and I started walking around and taking photos and after awhile, we were fortunate to come across some beautiful lighting. The sun broke through one of the clouds and for a couple of minutes we took advantage of it and got some really dynamic images with Gaby standing on a rock. After those photos, we called it a day and it was perfect timing too. The minute we start heading back to the car, it started pouring down.

I'm stoked on how these photos turned out as I have been working hard on my portraiture and post-processing. These images were processed using a new method of mine with the help of VSCO. An incredible piece of software that simulates a lot of the classic films from Kodak, Fuji, Ilford,  and many more.

Anyways, I invite you to check out Gaby's music and see what she's up to! She's the type of person that can always brighten your day and is working extremely hard to fulfill her passion for music. It's very inspiring and I wish her all the best.

Alyssa & Graham: Engagement

There is something magical about photographing engagement photos in the snow. Alyssa & Graham are a lovely couple I just met through one of our other wedding clients and they are such great people to know and work with. We spoke about doing an engagement session in the snow and I recommended the big four ice caves location to them and they were up for it! We were very lucky with great weather in this area and arrived at a time when a minimal amount of people were there. It was a brighter overcast day and the snow acted as a reflector for most of my shots. The lighting was great and it's actually super fun shooting photos in the snow. Alyssa & Graham were troopers and did such a great job with this session. We had a blast and took the opportunity to have fun and enjoy the beautiful WA scenery. Here are some photos from the engagement session:
