Marcus and Paige's Guthrie Theater Winter Wedding in Downtown Minneapolis by Bradley Hanson

Paige and Marcus insisted on all B&W coverage. In other words, my dream wedding (despite 3F degree January winter weather). They started at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist church and the reception was at the modern Guthrie Theater in downtown Minneapolis, overlooking the Mississippi River and Stone Arch Bridge. The reception area, on the 9th floor of the Guthrie, is known as the "amber box" because of it's dark yellow glass and bright red lights bathing it in light.

Jessica And Matt's Rainy Seattle Wedding On Lake Union's Skansonia Ferry by Bradley Hanson

Although the rain moved Jessica and Matt's wedding ceremony from the deck of the Skansonia ferry on Lake Union inside to the back of the boat, it was one of the happiest, most celebratory weddings I've ever been to in my 18 years of photographing weddings. I don't know if I've ever had this much fun at a wedding, or had the pleasure of being surrounded by people so vibrant and alive. Many thanks to the kind referral of my friend Lance Mercer for introducing the couple to me.

Summer Wedding Season In Full Swing by Bradley Hanson

It's been a very busy summer with even more travel than usual. I was in Seattle for weddings and portraits 3 weekends in 5 weeks! My first priority is always getting images to clients as quickly as possible, but I'll be posting some more weddings in the coming days, as well as writing on another magazine article and portfolio for Olympus Passion Magazine while I'm also testing various Sony A7 cameras and Zeiss lenses. I'll be updating my portfolio(s) soon and featuring a couple weddings and portrait sessions in the blog. Until then, here are 30 images since my last major blog posting that aren't in any portfolio yet. Stay tuned...

Images Published In Current Issue Of Minnesota Bride Magazine by Bradley Hanson

Minnesota Bride Magazine asked me to share advice on how brides can look more comfortable in front of the camera. Since my focus the entire day is shooting spontaneously, being as invisible as possible and keeping people at ease, I was happy to give my perspective on what has worked for me. I find that letting couples merely spend time with each other and working around that yields a much truer portrayal of their connection, and they appreciate that reality much more than if I were to run them through the same series of poses that can be seen at every other wedding.

Sadie + Darik At The Corson Building In Seattle by Bradley Hanson

This was my first time at The Corson Building, a charming and rustic oasis in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, and it was everything I could have hoped for. It's a restaurant with amazing local food that also started hosting weddings. It was a perfect 75 degree day and the amber tinged afternoon light was wonderful, making it feel like you have suddenly been transported to Napa, California. Thanks to a referral from Quynh and Charlie, clients from 2008! Sadie and Darik met in August of 2013, and their first date was Bluebird Ice Cream in Fremont, so they incorporated that into the desert. While looking for venues they stumbled into this beautiful location when they noticed one being set up here. It was meant to be...
