Great Day for Photography

This weekend the weather decided to cooperate and we had the opportunity for an amazing photo shoot! Ashley and Reuben, a couple from a previous wedding (with my partner Felicia Marquez from Beauty through a photograph) came out for a re-shoot in downtown Seattle Sunday.

There couldn’t be a better day for shooting in the Pacific Northwest! We met in front of Doc Maynard’s in historic Pioneer Square and the rest was history! The old brick and iron made for an exceptional day of magazine quality shooting. Ashley, the bride wanted something “Edgy” after her traditional wedding shoot, and they back streets and alleys of old Seattle were just the thing. It was amazing!

I spent several hours sorting through the hundreds of photos that were taken, every one of them a keeper. I finally narrowed down the pictures to just under a hundred. Once I have presented them to the client, I will narrow them down more and post them online here and my website: Check back here in a week or so for a sneak peek!

Wedding Season Coming Soon!

It’s that time of year again. The holidays are behind us, the seasons are beginning to change, and brides are starting to plan their spring and summer weddings.

In just a few short months of becoming associates with Beauty Through a Photograph and fully bringing Steve Ellmore Studios online, business is blooming! Last week Felicia and I met with Bride-to-Be Mindy and Fiancé Chris. They were so impressed they booked their reservation right there on the spot!

In search of brides to update my portfolio with, I have so far gathered at least three volunteers to willing to don their bridal gowns again for a photojournalistic style re-shoot. They get additional wedding pictures and I’m able to showcase more of my shooting style. Now the only thing we are waiting for is the weather to cooperate.

I’m always in need a new faces, so if you are interested in volunteering, please let me know.
