So dreamy…I like this photographer’s work.

Heather + Graham Heather and Graham had a true Northwest Destination wedding on Henry Island in the San Juans.  The journey included taxis, ferries, barges and a few guests even arrived in their own boats and camped on the island overnight.  The ceremony was damp from rain and from tears of happiness and the mist made for some great images. … Read More

Wedding Photography and Creative Live

Today is an exciting day. I’m shooting a wedding in Mesa and it’s going to be great…an intimate and chic venue {Tre Bella} and a lot of artistic and historic sites abound just around the corner.

I’m always looking for ways to grow & perfect who I am as a photographer…it’s like a lifetime learning thing. Even when I’m still shooting 20 years from now I’ll still be looking for ways to up my game. Recently, I came across an awesome online event, Creative Live Featuring Jasmine Star. I really like Jasmine Star, she is an awesome Wedding Photographer {I have to use caps cause she’s a real pro.} Not only is she a talented photographer she is very open and honest and likes sharing her experiences with other photographers. I really, really recommend her blog. The Creative Live Event, featuring Jasmine Star takes the viewer through the intricacies of a wedding day photo shoot. It’s 5 days of intensive online video training. I’ve watched 2 days of the training and it has really helped to address/verify/ and clarify some issues for me when photographing an event as varied and extensive as a wedding. Thanks Creative Live and Jasmine for this awesome resource.


Working Away…

I’ve been steadily working on my site…here’s another preview of the progress. There’s still a lot that needs to be done {obviously} but I’m happy with how things are coming together.

After a year of contemplating what direction to go in, I’ve decided to focus on Wedding and Engagement Photography. I believe I’m in love with love. The institution of marriage is sacred. And when two special people come together it’s amazing. I like capturing moments of couples having fun and reveling in each other’s company.


My New Site: CYNTHIA J PHOTOGRAPHY {a preview}

My life has been kinda crazy lately. In a good way. There are lots of projects cookin’ at the same time…multiple burners going. And it’s been a challenge. The good thing is that I love what I do.

Working on my website has been challenging, but its coming along. This is a preview / ‘placeholder’ until all of my photos and other info is finalized. At the same time it’s a lot of fun!
