Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Halloween in the Emerald City November 24, 2008

I was finally able to catch up on the Halloween festivities of my friend Ryan and his wife Mandy that I previewed on Nov 3rd HERE.  I’ve known Ryan and Mandy since high school and Ryan reached out to me via Facebook to see if I’d be interested in photographing some formal photos as well as candid photos of the night’s festivities.

My “alternate” assistant Guitree came with me for this event and was a tremendous help for her first time assisting me!  We’ll definitely be working together again soon because I’m going to be taking on a wedding in March and she is going to be my assistant for that!

The majority below are the posed portraits taken in the amazing Victorian home belonging to Ryan & Mandy’s friends.  The house is where the Emerald City was set up outside.  Neighborhood children flocked to the event and were filled with delight to see all of the decorations and the amazing costumes everyone had (and Mandy made her own costume which came out fantastic…see the first photo below!)

This has to be my favorite photo of the night!  I love everyone’s expressions!

The crowd was never ending!  The kids were loving it!

The whole group together!

Hoped you enjoyed all of the costumes as much as I did!
