surprise wedding proposal @ franklin falls | {roman + mira}

Michele from The Heart Bandits emailed me again with good news for the second time this month! She wanted us to photograph Roman’s surprise wedding proposal to Mira. This time Michele asked us whether we wouldn’t mind doing some hiking to Franklin Falls. Of course we didn’t! I saw the photos of Franklin Falls and I knew it’s really beautiful in winter! Yes!

Alexei helped with the photo shoot, carrying heavy gears/umbrellas for 6 miles walking/hiking, and the long 4+ hour total drive! What would I had done without him?

Most were taken with Leica M 10 + King of the Night 1982 Leica (Leitz) Noctilux-M f/1.0 Lens.

Thank you so much for choosing us! =)

surprise wedding proposal @ kerry park | {walter + jordyn}

I got an email last week from Michele from The Heart Bandits about Walter’s plan for a surprise proposal to Jordyn, his 4 years girl friend. Michele hired me couple times before in the past for Seattle surprise proposal. I’m always excited for this type of thing… what can I say, I’m a hopeless romantic.

Alexei helped me as usual today, making things much easier for me. We were supposed to pretend to be photographers from Seattle photo tour, taking photos of them around Kerry Park. Once we arrived at Kerry Park just before sunset, we found a perfect spot, Walter proposed. Thank goodness everything went well and Jordyn didn’t suspect anything until the big beautiful ring came out. I would say it’s a success! ^_^

All were taken with Leica M 10 + King of the Night 1982 Leica (Leitz) Noctilux-M f/1.0 Lens except the ring shot.

Thank you so much for choosing us! =)

{Marla’s} birthday party

We knew Marla + Randy Heagle through good friends of ours, Julie & Steve. When Marla asked us to photograph her birthday bash at Smith Tower, Seattle, WA – we were super excited, especially Alexei who really LOVES Smith Tower. =) It was really nice to see several familiar faces again.

Happy Birthday Marla! Thank you for choosing us as your birthday event photographer.

{Jenna’s} Bat Mitzvah

When Ruti from events-4life told me that she recommended us to Jon & Dina for their daughter Jenna’s Bat Mitzvah at AXIS Pioneer Square, Seattle, WA, I was really thrilled. We photographed couple Bar Mitzvah before but never Bat Mitzvah. The celebration was as I expected, very festive with Sound Source Seattle‘s help & it was full of family appreciation.

Thank you so much for choosing us! =)

{stephanie + matthew}

We met Stephanie & Matthew today for their photo shoot. It was surprisingly sunny considering it’s usually cloudy or rainy around this time of year here in Seattle. Seattle Sounders was playing today & after sun was set, the Sounders fans came out flooding the street, we actually caught some photos with the fans in the background.

All were taken with Leica M 10 + King of the Night 1982 Leica (Leitz) Noctilux-M f/1.0 Lens.

Thank you so much for choosing us! =)
