Years ago, my first magazine cover photo was a rolling shot of a Subaru STI with pink wheels, owned by Stephanie French. Over the years, we’ve become good friends and in some ways, I became her personal photographer. This past December, I had the honor of taking Stephanie’s and Travis’ wedding photos in Bellingham, Washington. This wedding also represented the debut of my new Nikon D700 and Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8 lens, and wow, did they sure shine. With Wence once again assisting, we started out at the Chrysalis Inn and Spa on a driest and most beautiful day in all of December for the wedding preparation and formal photos, then moved over to the Squalicum Boathouse for the wedding ceremony and reception. Lighting and moving space conditions at the boathouse were quite the challenge, but the new D700 and my trusty D300 combo still worked great. Congratulations once again to Stephanie and Travis!
