Monica wanted to have a photo session with her husband, Gheorghe on Valentine’s Day. But they had limited amount of time since they had Valentine’s Day dinner reservation book. We managed to wrap the photo session in time for them to the second. Wish it could had been longer. =)

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

Thank you so much for choosing us!

Wan emailed me in January to book an engagement photo session with us. As I expected, she’s so friendly & easy going in person, just like she’s in her emails. =) I love her tutu skirt & I was always hoping one day one of my clients would wear it.

surprise wedding proposal @ kerry park | {emin + elin}

Michele from The Heart Bandits referred us to her client, Emin who wanted to surprise his girl, Elin for a wedding proposal in Seattle. They flew in just today from Los Angeles! Thank goodness the rain streak had stopped. It was crazy rainy days these past few weeks. Emin + Elin were so easy to photograph for the photo shoot before & after the proposal, no need for direction much as they knew what they’re doing. ^__^ Congrats you two! Hope your stay in Seattle is going to be memorable!

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?

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! =)
