When Lindsay Sykes and Tim O’Connor discovered they were too late to book Sodo Park, their preferred wedding venue, they didn’t stress. Without too much ado, they went ahead and booked the place for a Monday, July 15. They were equally cool and relaxed throughout their wedding day. It was a real pleasure photographing them, their friends and family. We started off at the Olympic Sculpture Park where Lindsey and Tim got to see each other for the first time all dressed up and ready for the big day. Next, we headed over to the 107-year-old King Street Train Station, recently restored to its original grandeur (at a cost of $55 million) with marble walls, glass mosaic tile wall band, terrazzo floors and a new grand chandelier, above picture. Finally, we went to Sodo Park for the ceremony and reception. We got hundreds of great shots. Below is a selection of my favorites that sum up the story and the mood of the event.
Here is a link to the web gallery with all of Lindsay and Tim’s wedding pictures.

For something a little unusual on a Monday I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Lindsay Sykes and Tim O’Connor at Sodo Park by Herban Feast. We all had a blast as they are such a fun and relaxed couple. We started out making some pictures at the Olympic Sculpture Park where they got to see each other for the first time dress for the wedding. The weather was wonderful – sunny but not hot, just a slight breeze blowing so we were still comfortable in the bright light by the bay. Afterwards we stopped at the renovated King Street Station and had a coffee at Zeitgeist Coffee nearby before we went to SODO PARK for the wedding ceremony and reception.
Thanks to Melody Davis of M.G.Davis Wedding and Events, for all of her delightful help at the wedding and to Tracey Salazar for being my second photographer. We made a lot of images and here are a few quick picks. More to follow after editing.

Ryan Ferrer and Christine Liebsack were married on the eve of Valentine’s Day at the First Free Methodist Church on Queen Anne. Above Christine is getting ready at the church. After the ceremony everyone headed over to the reception which was at SODO Park, a great place for a party with wonderful food provided by Herban Feast. I stayed behind for a little while at the church with Christine and Ryan, as they did a little cleanup of the rose petals on the aisle, and for their limo to arrive. We stopped by on the way to SODO Park, at Kerry Park, on top of Queen Anne, for some photographs with the Seattle skyline in the background.
Although all of the photos were originally shot in color, and will be presented in color in their slide show on the website shortly, I decided to convert the highlight pictures for the blog to black and white to show how great they work without any color. The black and white images look so classic and timeless. I usually convert a number for the final selection for my wedding albums an books because of this timeless factor. Here are the pictures I choose to highlight the wedding in black and white. They are mainly the candid photographs presented here. All of the rest will be in a web gallery in color along with the slide show on the main web site. A mention about Christine and Ryan’s first dance. they went right into it upon our arrival at Sodo Park. It was beautiful. It turned out they had been practicing for a while and had taken lessons with Angela at Our First Dance. It paid off as they floated across the dance floor.
Ryan and Christine were delighted to see the Valentine theme decorated wedding bed at their suite at the W Hotel as Ryan carried Christine over the threshold in the age old tradition. The giant heart made of chocolates surrounded by red rose petals took them by complete surprise as they entered their wedding chamber. It was after all the eve of Valentines Day so it might have been suspected that one of their friends or sisters might have sprung the surprise on them. I just had to post this one in color. Some pictures do look better for it.
There is a web gallery below here with the rest of the highlights.
