Sue & Erik’s Wedding

February 28, 2008

Timeless elegance is the phrase that comes to mind when thinking of Sue & Erik’s wedding on February 16th 2008.  From her grandmother’s snowflake broach pinned to her dress, to the silver candlesticks on every table at the Stanley Park Pavilion, every last detail was absolutely exquisite. This statuesque couple was a photographer’s dream…they looked so good together and Sue has one of the most beautiful profiles I have ever seen. I have to say that this first shot is probably one of my all-time favorite portraits.  Even though we were running a wee bit late, we just had to pull over and take advantage of the gorgeous pinks and purples that only happen on the crisp days this time of year.  I’m so glad we did!

Pottery Show & Tell

February 6, 2008

I think this week I am going to indulge a little and play show & tell…just like the good old days back in Kindergarten! 🙂

About a year ago I took up pottery as a new creative outlet (Over the past 25 years, I’ve tried just about every medium under the sun) and I have fallen in love with it! It’s just so wonderfully tactile & physical…for me it’s a beautiful creative balance against the two-dimensionality of photography. I took a few shots during a recent Raku firing, and I’ve scanned a couple of my latest works to share with you all.
