The power of the gesture…. Wedding Photography, Seattle, WA

Natalie got married a week ago. She was born and raised in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg), Russia. This is an image taken few minutes before the wedding ceremony started. Her mother just helped her with final touches and I said: “Ok, give me a Russian salute and let’s join everyone”. She delivered the perfect gesture, a remnant of her past culture, while her mother followed, still lovingly looking over the details….. Needless to say, we had a good laugh out of Natalie’s perfect salute.

Kids participating in the oldest 4th of July Parade in the State. Sedro – Wooley, WA

They were not easy to capture since maneuvering around them was a task. It was either a capture from the back, side view, or while they turned away from a parade scene for some reason. Kids are always generous with their ever changing expressions and fast gestures. Here are just a few portraits while they wear the red, white, and blue elements of the 4th of July.
