Not sure where to begin with this one really…  While in Seattle recently I got to spend some time with many amazing people, many of which were photographers and two of the many of which that were photographers, were Chris and Sarah (brain ouch)… Long story short, one afternoon my amazingly wonderful (almost) best friend Christine and I had the pleasure of photographing a session for Chris and Sarah. Photographers often spend very little time on the other side of the lens and we felt it was about time to give back to these lovebirds an experience they have been giving to their clients for years.

You can see some of the beautiful frames that Christine captured from the same session on her blog here. What I love, is that even though myself and Christine were shooting the same lovebirds, at the same time with the same equipment the visions we had were so different and unique to us as individuals… there is no better or worse, just different and this is what I love so much about being a “professional observer”. I love having the ability to see how I want, being limited only by my imagination (and in some cases weather:)

Chris and Sarah, you guys rock… thank you for allowing myself and Christine in to your lives for a moment to share something so special.. See you down under in November! Enjoy… (I miss you Seattle)

Is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious really a word? Because if it is... these important, brilliant and loving images deserve it x

um. what do you mean "almost" best friend? hmmmm? i demand explanation. until said explanation, all i can say is wow, my friend. you are my inspiration and i loved shooting this with you. i just felt like energy was bouncing off every which way, even though we were shooting in a vast open field where things had no place to bounce off of. thanks for letting me experience such an amazing shoot with you. and chris + sarah: the session would have not been this magical had it not been for the two of you and the love you share.

Beautiful stuff, Dan! Next we'll have to get you over to Victoria for a wedding (i.e mine in June!).

I love seeing your perspective on this shoot. I've been to this park many many times, and to see the depth and magic you found there is breathtaking.

Dan - I linked over from Sarah's twitter feed and feel totally overcome - these are AMAZING. Your line "professional observer" totally clicked with me. That is what I am too - I can never stop observing people - it is my favorite past time. Thank you for these. Amazing vision and just oh goodness. Love them.

Stunning photos!!!! I can feel the love between these 2 beautiful persons!

It's one thing to see Sarah and Chris as inspiring photographer's.....in their professional state.....but it's quite another thing to see them as.....people, a beautiful married couple who are very very much in love. What a beautiful beautiful way you have of telling a story..... these are blissful indeed.

Dan- I got here from Sarah's blog post and I am just blown away! Your work is fabulous. I love the "professional observer" line, as I am also a professional observer. What a great way to put it. Sincerely blown away by your work and your vision. Thanks for sharing it.

You gave us-the viewers a tangible feeling from these radiant photos of not only two amazing human beings but of three, yes three... very talented individuals. Thank you Dan!

These pictures are absolutely beautiful!! They depict what love between two people is truly about. Next to 'relationships', 'love', 'soulmates' and 'respect' in the dictionary they should put these pictures as that is what they convey to me. Thank you!
