Before actually photographing here, I told the Bride "Prepare to be stared at!" And boy was she! I think at least 3 or 4 people asked "Is she a model or a real bride?" After hearing a few people ask me this question, the Bride said "Just tell them I'm a real model!" But, for her fiances sake, I must say she is also a real bride. The portrait below is the one the Bride is going to display for her wedding reception.
The above portrait was taken on the sidewalk off 1st Ave. in down town Seattle. A few clicks after I captured this image, a couple of guys drove along the sidewalk on bicycles next to the Bride. As they rode past her, one guy yelled to his friend "I'D MARRY HER!" It was loud enough for the Bride to clearly hear him... which was the point I think.
Brandon shot this one inside the Pikes Place Market. The Bride is doing a little belly dancing move with her extended hand. Right about here, someone watching said "This must be for a magazine." And another lady whispered to me "Tell her she looks gorgeous." Then the bride started to wonder if she would be able to 'get her big ego head back into the car.'
This is one of my favorite close ups that I captured of the bride. This portrait session was also special because the Bride is a good friend of mine. I think she has gotten more beautiful every year I have known her.
How could a Seattle portrait be complete without a little rain? Thankfully, it did not start raining until about 20 min. after this picture was taken! The umbrella was just for fun! Brandon took this portrait on the street right outside the Market area.

This is usually when the sreaming starts.
Don't say "pictures" or "smile"....just play with them. Balance a rock on your head, juggle something, let them take some pics of you.
After that it's just a matter of getting the lighting right.
What's the best way to photograph kids?.......let em' play.
What's the best way to photograph shy kids?.....uhh...let em' play.

I did a timed exposure and beat the file up in photoshop.
