Urban Unveiled

I was having tea yesterday with wedding photographer Sharlane Chase and learned more about the upcoming Urban Unveiled. We're all invited to this premier event on the evening of March 8th at the Palace Ballroom. Luly Yang will be there with her exquisite gowns. Tom Douglas will prepare the food... it's going to be a top notch affair designed to introduce couples to local vendors who truly provide excellent services and products - all in a relaxed and beautiful setting. Even if you've selected your wedding vendors, join us anyway to meet new friends! Sharlane has worked tirelessly to make this a one of a kind event. Here's a glimpse at her wonderfully vivacious personality!

Vanessa & Mike

Vanessa and Mike were such a delight to work with! Theirs was my first wedding of the new year and what a gift to begin with such an easy going and fun couple! They planned a beautiful wedding that included special Filipino elements in their meaningful ceremony at Blessed Sacrament and reception at McCaw Hall. Immediately after Vanessa and Mike's introduction to the reception, they and their guests were greeted by an amazing Filipino drill team performance! This couple really showed how a winter wedding in the Pacific Northwest can be truly lovely. Even on an overcast day, planning with rich wedding colors, unique architecture, and natural light creates a gorgeous day! Here are some of my favorite photographs of their wedding SLIDESHOW.

Jeff LaPlante

Where would I be without you, Jeff! I have to take a moment to thank this indispensable business consultant, great photographer and wonderful friend who has affected and changed my life in such a beautiful way. Jeff was a true Godsend during my conversion from film to digital, and he continues to offer excellent (and patient) work flow, storage and Web development support. Jeff is the Community Leader of Seattle's Pictage User Group. He is incredibly knowledgeable and infinitely giving. Despite his full and busy life as husband, father of two (plus 2 dogs & a cat) and PUG leader, Jeff always answers his phone and finds time to share his talents. I walked into his office this week to hear him on the phone with Dane Sanders. Last night he was helping Mike Colon troubleshoot his RAID set and talking to Jim Davis about Action Runner. Today when I called, Joann Arruda had just walked in the door. Jeff is a sterling example of community builder! DJ (Open Source Photo) should be proud! Jeff's not only a technical master, but he's an all around wealth of knowledge - everything from mouse traps to how to paint your house to the best coffee beans! Thank you, Jeff!
