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...

My speciality is shooting family portraits in an unposed, natural style and wedding photojournalism. I photograph weddings as they happen rather than direct the action, which is often referred to as documentary style wedding photography. I’ve photographed weddings in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Seattle and many countries around the world.

Weddings And Families, Birth And Babies by Bradley Hanson

Although I do not market myself as a birth or baby photographer, I regularly photograph for families I've met at one of the 600+ weddings I've photographed. As a father of three myself, I know how powerful the experience of birth is, as well as the indescribable joys of parenthood. I love that photographing weddings put me in the middle of such joyful events, and that connection often continues a few years later when the same couples become parents themselves. This can mean that after photographing their wedding, I photograph the birth of their children and later the family. I take the same approach I take with weddings and portraits: the role of silent observer rather than active director. Reality is always more beautiful than anything posed or scripted. There are several families who I photograph yearly in Seattle, allowing me to actually watch these same children grow up. I just photographed a Bat Mitzvah for one of these same families, images from which will be a blog post for a later date...

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...
