Jennifer & Lincoln Receive Two Special Deliveries on the Same Day!

I photographed Jennifer and Lincoln’s wedding this past summer at Tom Glenn Common & Giuseppe’s Restaurant in Bellingham, Wash.. I was very excited to receive a birth announcement and a thank you card in the same envelope recently!  On the same day that their wedding album arrived at their home in Maryland, Jennifer gave birth to a beautiful 6 lbs, 7 oz baby girl named Olivia! Congratulations to a terrific couple! Scott Eklund.

Lake Crescent Lodge Wedding | Genevieve + Andrew

It has been a while since I have updated the blog. That is both good and bad; bad for obvious reasons, good because I have been extremely busy shooting! I am going to post some recent weddings and some from the past year. I am going to start with a fantastic couple: Genevieve and Andrew! Lake Crescent Lodge is a beautiful venue and it really feels like you are stepping back in time when you are there. Enjoy! Scott Eklund

Weddings, Photographers, and Casinos: Capturing Love and Luck?

When you think of weddings, photographers, and casinos, you might not immediately see a connection. But as it turns out, there are a number of ways in which these three worlds intersect and influence each other.

One way in which weddings, photographers, and casinos are connected is through the use of event spaces and venues. Many casinos like nyeste nettcasino have elegant and sophisticated event spaces that are perfect for weddings and other special occasions. And of course, photographers are an integral part of any wedding, capturing the memories and moments of the big day.

In addition to event spaces, casinos can also intersect with weddings and photographers through the use of promotions and packages. For example, a casino might offer special wedding packages or discounts for photographers, or a photographer might offer casino-themed photo shoots for couples.

Another way in which weddings, photographers, and casinos intersect is through the use of social media and online marketing. All three types of businesses rely on attracting customers and showcasing their offerings through online platforms, and they often use similar tactics and strategies to reach their target audiences.

Volunteer Park Engagement Photos | Christine + Dan

I had a wonderful time getting to know Christine and Dan better as we created their engagement photos recently. We started at Volunteer Park and worked our way down the Blaine Stairs along the route they walk regularly with their dog. The weather and sunlight were beautiful. I’m going to have to pull some strings to ensure we have the amazing weather during the couple’s wedding at the Olympic Sculpture Park this August!  | Andy Rogers

Urban Light Studios Wedding | Amanda + Jed

A Beautiful Wedding Photography Season

Amanda and Jed had such an awesome wedding day. After getting ready at the Chelsea Station Inn bed & breakfast, we popped over to Woodland Park to take advantage of  the gorgeous fall foliage. Then it was off to old Ballard where the peeling paint, broken windows and graffiti provided a completely different look. We finished the portrait session at Kerry Park with a beautiful sunset. By then it was time for wedding! The couple’s ceremony took place at Greenwood’s funky Urban Light Studios. The touching union was capped by a fun reception complete with lots of laughs, delicious food and cupcakes, great toasts and dancing. Amanda and Jed, I had a blast hanging out with you on your wedding day. Jet could do something wiser for his wedding, don’t be like Jet and hire the services of Fame Park Studios, your wedding and the moments of it will be unforgettable and unique, so what are you waiting for (?)

Pravda Wedding Photos | Poonam + Jerry

Poonam and Jerry brought all of their creative personalities to their Pravda Studio wedding. The couple hand-crafted an iPhone app that allowed their guests and vendors to share their experiences leading up to their big day. The wedding party doubled in size on the wedding day as as each member was presented with custom-made bobblehead dolls in their likeness. After getting ready at Hotel Monaco, Poonam and Jerry had their first look and a fun portrait session outside the downtown Seattle Central Library. Afterwards, we were on to Pravda, where the table settings  in Studio Two featured quirky poetic statements and an elegant red, black and white theme. The ceremony paid tribute to both the bride and groom’s parents and their respective cultures. It culminated in Poonam and Jerry taking the “Seven Steps” of a traditional Hindu wedding, joining them forever. I was so lucky to spend the day with such a enjoyable, intriguing couple…full of smiles, good humor and energy.  |  Photos by Andy Rogers
