venkat + sanjana

Today’s photo shoot was really fun but crazy at the same time. At one point, the rain suddenly poured on us then tapered out. Venkat + Sanjana bravely braced the rain with us, with zero complains. Hopefully other clients will see that rain doesn’t always mean bad for photos. ^_^

The holiday lights are now in full display in Seattle. It’s one of the things I love about photography – taking photos at night with lights everywhere you can see.

Happy Holidays everyone!

All photos were taken with my favorite combination of all time, Leica M 240 + King of the Night 1982 Leica (Leitz) Noctilux-M f/1.0 Lens

Alexei + I met Michelle on Sunday for her photo shoot. We were thinking of rescheduling due to the weather forecast said ‘rain’ but luckily we didn’t. The Seattle night lights are beautiful & I always love to capture them in portrait.

Thank you for hiring us Michelle! ^_^

All photos were taken with Leica M 240 + vintage 1982 Leica (Leitz) Noctilux-M f/1.0 Lens except the last photos.

{Steve’s Birthday Party}

When I was looking at houses on Camano Island, WA, Steve & Julie were the ones who helped me on purchasing my dream house. We became friends since then. So when Julie asked me whether I wanted to be the photographer of Steve’s birthday bash, of course I said yes.

Thank you very much Steve & Julie. Alexei & I had fun in your party!

Happy birthday Steve!
