Seattle Senior Photography :: Cheryl Ford Photography

A few months ago, I planned a styled Senior Photo shoot in Seattle. Of course, my good friend and amazing makeup artist, Hanna Mazur did the hair and makeup – because I basically won’t work with anyone else. She’s too good. The theme of the shoot was Paris in Seattle. I wanted to try to give a feeling of Paris but utilize some of the gorgeous areas of Seattle. Some of the images were picked up by Senior Style Guide, a huge honor, and posted on their site and now I get to share them! Whoohoo!! Stay tuned next week for more images from this session with Claire.

Weekly Roundup 2.32 :: Styled Wedding Shoot

Seattle Wedding & Portrait Photographer: Cheryl Ford Photography

 

styled shoot wedding westland distillery seattle
Maybe you’ve seen some of my sneak peek photos from this week’s styled wedding shoot at Westland Distillery. If not, you can check them out here and here and here. Well here’s one final sneak peek of this adorable cake from Baked. Seattle. They are my absolute favorite girls and they always come through with something just amazing. I’m pretty excited about this styled shoot and can’t wait to share the rest of the images.

THE BEST:

+Looking through the images from the aforementioned styled shoot. I’m always terrified to look at my photos after a photo shoot. They look so different on the big monitor than they do on the little screen on the back of the camera.
+Spending an evening with friends, seeing Ray LaMontagne at Marymoor Park Wednesday night.
+Delivering client orders is always one of my favorite things. I got to deliver prints & canvases this week. So fun!

THE WORST:

+The incredibly rude people around us at the Ray LaMontagne concert Wednesday night. Talking, yelling, standing up, complaining about people’s stinky feet.

THE ABSURD:

+My son has missed all of his soccer practices that I was in charge of getting him to because I have simply forgotten about them. I need a better system.

THE GRATITUDE:

+Cheerful balloon ceilings, dogs eating Frosty Paws and about losing their minds they were so happy, lots and lots of diamonds on my fingers, my beautiful friend Hanna, Godiva Salted Caramel chocolate bar, taking 47 selfies with Wendy, my cute new earrings that were a birthday present from Vanessa, delivering client orders.

Weekly Roundup 2.31 :: Manresa Castle Ghost Hunting

Seattle Wedding & Portrait Photographer: Cheryl Ford Photography

manresa castle port townsend haunted seattle washington


It was the perfect setting for ghosts. If I was a ghost, that’s where I would live. It’s spooky, old, quiet. But during our stay at the Manresa Castle in Port Townsend this week, we saw, felt and heard nothing the resembled a real ghost or spirit or haunting. Not like we have any fancy equipment or think we’re really ghost hunters. It’s kind of a fun thing my best friend, Wendy, and I do every once in a while. Go to some place that is supposed to be haunted, have some wine, wander around and hope we’ll get spooked (but not really). The Manresa was very cool though. Super old with lots of neat touches throughout the whole property. It’s not a 5-star hotel by any stretch but if you’re looking for a place with a lot of character and the potential to get spooked, it’s not a bad place to go.

THE BEST:

+I second shot 3 weddings last weekend. What an experience. That is a lot of love and photos packed into a small time frame. It was wonderful though to get to share in these wonderful days with brides and grooms.
+Spending a day and evening with Wendy, being silly, having real talk, eating snacks and drinking wine. I love those times with her. Then double-bonus I got to have lunch with her yesterday too!
+Going out with some friends last night for my birthday. It was so fun to hang out, chat, meld some of my different friend groups. Super thanks to those who came out to celebrate with me.

THE WORST:

+About 8:30 Sunday night, 6-7 hours into wedding #3 of the weekend, my feet were like so mad at me. So mad. They hurt. BAD.

THE ABSURD:

+When I got home from said wedding #3 on Sunday night, I sat down on the couch and actually didn’t think I could get up. Monday morning I could barely think I was so tired. My brain was on super low power. Went over to my hairdresser’s to get a trim and she asked me if I had been doing anything fun this summer. I couldn’t even think of anything. Finally she says, “Have you seen any movies?” and I was like oh yeah, I went to the movies. My brain so needed a vacation.

THE GRATITUDE:

+Beautiful weddings, the Space Needle peeking up through some buildings, a much needed pedicure Monday morning, getting a replacement camera strap in 1 day when mine broke, a fun evening with a best friend, funny sayings you send to a friend, an engagement photo that makes my heart sing, the best birthday card ever, and flowers from a friend on your birthday.

Westland Distillery Engagement Session :: Tom & Marie

Seattle Engagement Photography :: Cheryl Ford Photography

Tom & Marie are getting married! I’ve actually known Tom for close to 20 years now, being a friend of a friend from college. I’d even photographed his band, Crown Hill, back in 2012. And about 10 months ago, I was at a birthday party and was introduced to Marie, his new girlfriend (at the time). In my head I just kept thinking, those two are going to get married. You could just see it.

And now they are! And I got to take their engagement photos at the Westland Distillery in Seattle last week. They’re such sweet, nice, lovely people and I am just so so so happy and excited for them.

Tom & Marie, Congratulations on your engagement!
