Model Shoot in Downtown Ballard

Two weekends ago, I (Gerald) went out to Seattle with a few friends to scout locations for future photo shoots. We started off roaming the streets of Ballard, and eventually ended up in the SODO district south of downtown Seattle. We really found a lot of cool places, and the entire time we were kicking ourselves for not bringing models with us. Hopefully I will get around to posting a few of those photos because we got some killer shots of each other.

In any case, Airika and I decided to get our own models and hit a few of our newly discovered locations this past weekend! We called up Kelly and Patrick whose wedding we are going to be shooting in April. We had and awesome time with them shooting their engagement photos back in December, and they were more than happy to come hang out and model for us. Thanks guys!

Kelly and Patrick's friend Carol (an aspiring photographer) came along for the ride as well. We all had a blast shooting together!

We are heading to LA later today for Karen and Minh's engagment session, and then it's off to Las Vegas for WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International)! So, if there is any delay in our response time to emails, please be patient, we'll get back to you soon.


ps. Thanks to Airika's Dad for hanging out with our cats while we're gone!

Loved seeing you guys in Vegas! We're gonna send out an email blast to the people registered on the OpenPhotoContest and would love to include a picture of you guys with your new prize. :)

If you have a picture of both of you holding it that'd be awesome. Just email it to or post it on your blog and I'll grab it off of there.

Rock on and congratulations!
