Erin and Chris Married! Inn at Ship Bay on Orcas Island

Erin and Chris had their wedding on Orcas Island, which is re.donk.u.lous in June!  The ceremony and reception were at the Inn at Ship Bay which is also re.donk.u.lous!  Erin and Chris are re.donk.u.lous!


Chris is down with Sharps Mission Control Guck in a Puck!

Sayuri + Richard Engaged!

Justin Timberlake may not live in Seattle, but Sayuri and Richard are definitely bringing sexy back!  I can’t wait to shoot their wedding this August.






Blake Green - I like the full color in your images. Question about the first one in this set, is the focus/blur done in pp or do you use a lensbaby or tilt-shift? Anyway the whole set looks really nice.July 24, 2009 - 10:21 pm

Brian Hartman - Really amazing shots Patrick! I think you deserve a bier on me.July 27, 2009 - 10:50 am

Bessemer, MI – 4th of July and other Oddities ;-)

Anne and I visited her parents in Bessemer, MI for the 4th of July.  They live about 20 minutes from Lake Superior and Black River Harbor.


In Bessemer, they used to shoot the fireworks from right in the field where everyone sits.  The fireworks would explode right above the crowd, and for many years everyone thought that this was best way to do fireworks.  Then one 4th of July, a firework malfunctioned and went into the crowd and exploded, hurting many of the town’s residents.  Now they shoot the fireworks from off the bluff, where is it much safer.


Wally is legendary as the best roofer in the Bessemer, MI area!  He also drives a really cool truck.  In the winter he builds beautiful all-wood canoes.  He said that building canoes keeps him from going crazy.


Hiking around Presque Isle

Minnesota Mel is known in these parts for the elaborate custom building projects he does, and his nearly encyclopedic knowledge of traditional Scandinavian music.  You’ve got to wonder about a man who brings his accordian, and a few warm Schmitts to his current project which is a sauna/outhouse.  That’s right, one building that contains both a composting toilet, and a sauna.  I bet you don’t have one of those.

Kari + Luke Engaged !

Kari lives in the State of Idaho and Luke lives in the State of Michigan.  When they come together, they create a new State of Awesome, which is located in an old red barn!


The official transportation in their state is a combination of mopeds and sailboats.  Luke owns a small army of mopeds and a 22′ sailboat.



Kari has her PhD in audiology, so hearing always comes first.  Luke has his PhD in smashing stuff.


Briana + Dan Engaged!

Just had an awesome evening engagement shoot with Briana and Dan at Juanita Beach park.  They are a very fun-loving, chill and kind-hearted couple, and I think that really comes out in their photos.  I can’t wait to shoot their party wedding in August!

Jean - I love the ones in the tall grass. Very very nice work.July 11, 2009 - 9:42 pm
