Amy Chang + Jonathan Golob engaged!

The season is starting up again and the first round couldn’t have been any better. Amy and Jonathan are friends who have been together since I have known them. Their brilliant minds crossed paths and resulted in a pairing full of laughter, scientific discussions and wit. I loved the engagement session we shared. I could literally watch these two for hours debate about scientific research. Speaking of, we started off in Amy’s lab at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and made our rounds throughout the amazing architecture. Following the colorful display of test tubes, we found ourselves on the streets of South Lake Union enjoying the best Spring has to offer with cherry blossoms in each direction.

Melinda and Ryan’s Engagement

We were staying warm just around the corner of Belmont and Pine inside Stumptown Coffee. Melinda and Ryan were kind enough to meet with me to talk about themselves and how they found each other. I could already tell they had amazing chemistry just by how much they laughed and finished each other’s sentences. Something that helps me is understanding what kind of couple they are so that I can take photos of them in that way. Do they like candids? are they the outdoor type? One question I asked was, “how would your friends describe you two?” Their response? “We’re a unit. Always together.” Beautiful. Together, including their GORGEOUS chocolate lab, we took to the park in Greenlake and Elliot Bay Park.

Haiti fundraiser: Portraits of Tilden + family

Back in January, my dearest friend Billy Shih did something amazing for his birthday. He inspired friends, family members, and strangers to make a difference when Haiti was struck by a tragic force leaving the area in ruins. Billy stepped up and helped raise over $16,000 from over 100 individual in donations for Doctors without Borders. How did he do it? Well read below from an old family friend, Jamie Hsu:

I think this is a great story, because I remember how I was 10+ years ago, and I was not as selfless.

Back when Haiti experienced that devastating, Kevin Wong (www.kvwphoto.com) and some of his friends wanted to find a way to procure donations for relief efforts to Haiti. They started pimping themselves out to help people move or “whatever” in exchange for donations.

I have known Kevin all of his life as we grew up as family friends. And I know that Kevin is an extremely talented photographer.

So in exchange for a donation to Doctors Without Borders, Kevin agreed to take some family photos for us.

We went for the Fun Forest as the setting because of its impending closure.

Thank you Kevin for capturing these for us. Treasure!

Again friends, it’s www.kvwphoto.com. He’s local and he’s available for you and your family.

***Edited to add: They raised over $15,000!

More to come!

Meredith + Matt Meyer 09.04.2010 teaser

Meredith and I met during Julie and Will’s wedding last year in July at Nantucket. Our friendship had turned into a relationship that brought me to one special day shared between Meredith and her amazing husband, Matt Meyers. We rode in limosines and Escalades to take photos at UW that brought back memories of where they first met as students over the summer. It was a day meant to be more than just a wedding day, but a marriage between two families. Congratulations again you two!

Special thanks to Maxine Toh for second shooting and John Taing and Stephen Giang for running another successful photo booth!
