Hurricane Ike Status Update

(Updated on Sept. 20, 2008, and again on Sept. 23, 2008)
I thought a post was in order to let everyone know my status during Hurricane Ike:

- My family is fine.
- My house is fine. Tree limbs down, but none on the house. No power as of 9/23/08 (11 days so far), so we are staying with my parents who do have power.
- None of us have internet access – not at my house or my parent’s house. My parents now have internet access. Yeah! I can only respond to email via my iPhone though, and it is somewhat tedious so I try to limit it.
- I’m still working. Matter of fact, I’ve posted the first half of the proofs from Tricia & Daniel’s wedding today.
- I’m trying to keep driving to a minimum until the gas shortage is over – I want to make sure I have gas to get to weddings. I’m starting to see gas stations without lines now, so hopefully that will pass by this weekend. Gas is much more available now, but there are still traffic lights without power, so I’m still trying to keep driving to a minimum for the time being.
- Any print orders or DVDs that need to be shipped out are currently delayed. They will hopefully go out next week, but it could be two weeks.
- Posting things online in galleries is also delayed until we get the internet access back at our house or my parent’s house. I’ve tried at public wifi access places, but they won’t allow large uploads like that. I also posted Leah & Ryan’s wedding photos last Friday, along with Erika & Jason’s engagement session.

I’m sorry about the inconvenience for everyone — trust me, I feel your pain! I’ll update this post as I know more, and keep it at the top of the page until it no longer applies.

I’ve received several emails asking about available dates for rescheduled weddings — I am rather heavily booked for the fall, but I am working to get together a list of other photographers that are available for fall dates. Please feel free to email me to get the list for a certain date, even if I am booked. I’m happy to do anything I can to help out!

My currently *booked* 2008 dates are:
- Saturday, September 20
- Saturday, September 27
- Friday, October 3
- Saturday, October 11
- Sunday, October 12
- Saturday, October 18
- Saturday, November 8
- Saturday, November 22
- Saturday, December 20

Sunset Over Seattle

Moon over Seattle & Mt. Rainier

Our vacation to Seattle is coming to an end and I’ll be back in the office next week. We absolutely LOVE it here – the weather has been gorgeous, we’ve had the chance to visit with family and friends, and the photo opportunities have been incredible!

As we drove into Redmond, Washington last night from our visit in Bellingham (where I had a photo shoot for Success Magazine!) and Whidbey Island, we came around a curve and I realized that the mountain (Mt. Rainier) was out, the sun was setting, the full moon was rising — it was the perfect chance to get great skyline photos of Seattle! So we detoured to downtown Seattle, and the above was the result. It was so breathtaking — the photo truly doesn’t even do it justice! We stayed well past sunset, so lots more photos to follow on Flickr!

I’ll miss Seattle, but I can’t wait to get home and share some more of the fantastic weddings we’ve been blessed to be a part of this summer — and get ready for the fall wedding season that is quickly approaching!
