Fourteen breast cancer survivors from across the United States and 14 mastectomy tattoo artists came together at Bremerton’s Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott on Sunday, October 21, 2018, to give and get the gift of love — Mastectomy Tattoos for their scars after having breast reconstruction. One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.

I enjoy all of the seasons of the year. I especially love Autumn and its rich, warm, colors; red, yellow, orange, purple, and green! When I get free time in the early morning or late afternoon to go outside into nature I’m feeling a bit of zen. Our earth gives us gifts of paradise each day to enjoy. When I get to play with my cameras and lens I’m really in the zone.
I’ve traveled throughout the United States in search of beautiful colorful landscapes to photograph. There are many. But, in fact, some of the best and most beautiful natural landscapes showcasing Autumn color is where I live - close to my backyard.
And, for outdoor wedding photography — photographing a bride and groom under a blazing oak, alder, or maple tree is the best! All of my couples love this!!!
I also love to let myself go and be totally creative! How about this abstract photography landscape in the water. It really looks like a watercolor painting!

The sunrise, cool crisp air, crystal clear water, warm autumn color, fog layers, Olympic Mountains, seagulls, a fisherman taking his boat out to sea, tranquil and calm — this is what I feel and see as I look, linger, and take in the natural beauty of the Hood Canal, at Seabeck. A picture perfect slice of Pacific Northwest paradise.

Serenity, color, light, shadows, reflections…and more.
Two hearts united on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at the civil war-era farm manor house, the Jacob Smith House, in Lacey, Washington. The happy couple were surrounded by family and friends.
The bride’s family and friends flew in from Connecticut for the wedding celebration — joined by Matt’s family and friends from Washington. Their day couldn’t have been more perfect with delightful autumn skies and lots of love.
Their nuptials started with a beautiful and romantic First Look pictures.
Followed by their First Look kiss. So sweet!
Amanda and Matt said their wedding vows under an arbor with rose petals.
With just the right touch of color for the autumn leaves and trees; and, the historic Jacob Smith House for their backdrop…the setting could not have been more romantic and ideal for their wedding photography.
Using the front porch and fall color for family photos.
The wedding reception with Amanda and Matt cutting their wedding cake. The cake was very yummy!
Our best wishes to Amanda and Matt Godsey. Thank you so much for asking us, Jolly Sienda Photography, to be a part of your celebration! Much love to you both!!!
The colors of Autumn are breathtaking! I love shades of green, rose, purple, orange, pink and the warm tones they bring to a wedding and wedding reception.
There’s so many themes you can have at your wedding. These brides and grooms chose crystal and ostrich feathers, monsters and rich purple flowers, a vineyard, and Autumn leaves on their wedding cake. As a photojournalist wedding photographer, I love capturing all the details of the wedding season — whether it is Autumn, spring, summer or winter.

Look in your backyard and grab your camera! This is the time of year to capture autumns richest colors at their peak. In my Kitsap Peninsula, Washington backyard, we love our beautiful Red Maple tree. In fact, this photo is one of my best fine art photography print sellers! Everyone loves the oriental style tree line and the warm red color or the leaves. And, I didn’t have to hop on a plane and fly to New England to get this fall color!
I’m amazed at the variety of colors of the trees found in Washington State and throughout the West. From New Mexico to the Olympic Peninsula and Canada there is so much beauty! Americas nature playground provides a bountiful display for landscape and nature photographers.
Get out there and enjoy! Here’s my friend Rachel Zachary taking a walk along the burning Aspens along the Rio Grand near Taos, New Mexico. So relaxing!
Better hurry — the color won’t last long.

The last breath of summer and the early fall months of September and October are so warm and inviting! Engaged couples who choose to marry at this time of year can enjoy warm sunshine and cooler breezes. Romance is in the air!
The color of fall leaves, golden yellow roses, and rich burgundy, sage, and purple hues are delightful to photograph and are so romantic.
I love to photograph the wedding rings using symbols of the season -- how about rings on a red delicious apple tree?!

Congratulations to Maurean Grogan and Dan Dimmen! They married on 08-18-18 a palindrome day -- super cool, in a park-like setting on Tiger Lake in Belfair, Washington.
The couple and their families pitched in to plan the perfect wedding! It was outdoors, at sunset, with twinkle lights and lanterns. Maurean's sweet doggie was part of the ceremony too. They even had a slick Volkswagen bus for cozy, fun, glam camper shots. Their wedding had it all!
With about 120 guests, a roasted suckling pig with all of the fix'ens, a DJ, yard games, and more, guests and the happy couple partied the night away under the stars!
The wedding ceremony was full of emotion and love. Everyone could feel the love that Dan and Maurean feel for one another.
Weddings are all about family and friends getting together to celebrate the joining of two hearts. Smiles and tears filled the air!
And, many beautiful family memories...heart and soul with love!
Best wishes to the bride, groom, and their families!
On Saturday, August 11, 2018, at 5:11 pm, Kyle McInnis and Calvin Sweat married each other at Heronswood Garden in Kingston, Washington. They drove three days, from their home, in Sioux City, Iowa for their wedding and were joined by family and friends from Iowa, Washington, and Hawaii.
The bride and groom planned their dream wedding together and it took some time to put everything together. Kyle, and her grand daughter Izzy Tello, the Maid of Honor, traveled to the Kitsap Peninsula, WA., in 2017 to meet with wedding professionals and see the venue.
Kyle wore a stunning crystal beaded dress with a train and carried a fresh wedding bouquet of vibrant Northwest flowers.
Calvin dressed in a handsome wedding suit with a shimmery satin silver-grey vest and tie. He was joined by his best friend, Mitch, who served as his Best Man.
The wedding ceremony happened at about 5:11 pm in the afternoon -- a special time for the couple to coincide with the time they got engaged.
It was a picture perfect day for them with temperatures in the low 70's. The ceremony was officiated by Amber Bartz, Celebrations by Amber.
Helping to show off Kyle's lovely wedding dress and train.
At Heronswood Garden there are so many beautiful places to take pictures. For the 4-hour wedding and reception -- we barely could scratch the surface!
The celebration included the traditional cutting of the cake and the First Dance for the newlyweds, followed by lots of visiting with friends and family.
Congratulations to Kyle and Calvin! Thank you so much for asking Jolly Sienda Photography to be a part of your wedding celebration. It is an honor and a pleasure to get to know you; and, Rich and I wish you the very best!
Cathy Darlington Graham and Ron Jenson, business and real estate partners, with John L. Scott Realty in Belfair, Washington, worked with me recently to create new portraiture for their business cards and other marketing materials.
Being real estate agents based on the Pacific Northwest's Kitsap Peninsula, they wanted to do their photo shoot outside using the lush greenery of the Evergreen trees and the blues of the sea at Hood Canal.
We had a lot of fun at the photo shoot and the results gave Cathy and Ron a fresh, new look. Also, we did individual portraits and head-shots.
Do you need a re-fresh with your professional business and executive portraiture? Please contact me today to book your lifestyle portrait session. I look forward to hearing from you!
For all the lovable cats in the world and to those kitty's that need a home -- we're thinking of you today, August 8, 2018, on International Cat Day!
I adopted my beloved Topaz 11 years ago from a shelter. He's a character and so loving. He is gregarious and follows me around the house like a dog --- but he's a cat! I took this picture of dear Topaz recently with a 150 x 600 lens.
When I travel I enjoy taking pictures of cats in unique settings....doing what cats do...sleeping, staring, and just being adorable kitties! The cats below, from left to right, were photographed in Kotor, Montengro and Alexandria, Virginia.
Give a cat a loving home. They will give you so much back in return!
Do you have a wedding theme for your special day? A lot of guys and gals do. Incorporating fun and creative props at your wedding can really add another dimension to your keepsake wedding photos and wedding album. Also, working with natural surroundings, like we have here in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful for your pictures. Mother Nature does not let us down!
How about a framed picture!? I love this a lot!! The wedding party and family did too!
For this Victorian wedding the velvet sofa and handmade decorations using the brides favorite colors and style really set the tone for a very romantic wedding.
Nothing like a beautiful lake and greenery to make a pretty frame for a wedding portrait. Or, an umbrella!
Nothing's off of the table when it comes to your wedding. Recently, I photographed a wedding held at a race track. The bride and groom incorporated his race car and they had black and white checked flags. Their wedding was uniquely their own and wonderful!

The other day we had brilliant blue skies and fluffy white clouds. It inspired me to jump into my car, with my camera gear, and take a drive along the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas following the seashore.
I made several stops; the first was at the boat launch at Tracyton. There were a gaggle of geese swimming about. Next, I headed to Keyport Marina, walked on the dock, and took photos of boats and this beautiful hanging basket of petunias over the seashore.
Seagulls we're having a terrific time along the shoreline as the waves crashed against the tide. I also saw several ferry boats make the crossing from Coupeville on Whidbey Island to Port Townsend.
Before I crossed over the Hood Canal Bridge, I stopped at the Kitsap Memorial Park. There I saw a boat on the canal with an American Flag waving to me as it glided on the canal towards the Olympic Mountains.
When I reached Port Townsend I headed to Fort Worden to walk the beach and see the Point Wilson Light lighthouse.
It was a perfect day! At dusk the pastel colors of the sky caught my attention with the curve at the beach. Point Wilson Light and a seagull were entertaining.
I love the seashore, don't you? Everyone I saw there had a great time! Can you do a handstand on the beach? What's your favorite beach location? Let me know on Facebook.
On June 30, 2018 Joe Graham and Cathy Darlington Strong married each other surrounded by love, family, friends, and race cars! It was a romantic, energized, ceremony and party complete with Joe's yellow race car, black and white checkered flags, a tool box, and red roses!
Cathy and Joe had their First Look before the ceremony. You could feel the love in the air!
Cathy dazzled the crowd in her beautiful wedding dress!
At 7 pm the races stopped as Cathy and Joe said their vows on the race track!
Our sincere congratulations to Cathy and Joe! Thank you for allowing Rich and I to be a part of your wonderful celebration! Best wishes!!!
Whether you're a professional photographer or learning about photography a great way to learn and practice your skills is to go out into your yard and photograph the flowers in your garden. I love to experiment with wide angle and macro lens for this.
This is a great way to understand color, texture, depth of field, design, and to train your photography eyes. Don't get discouraged. Let the natural world pull you in and keep practicing with you camera. Over time, I know you will be thrilled with your results! When you are -- make up some prints of your flowers and display them on your wall as a fine art photography gallery! So pretty!!
See something you love! Please let me know! I'd love to hear from you. Fine art photography by Jolly Sienda Photography is available on this website or by contacting me.
Let the wedding reception party begin! It's so much fun for me to watch people at weddings let loose and have fun. Yeah, most brides and grooms are a little nervous on their BIG DAY, but once the corks start popping and they've already had their picture taken by the wedding photographer in dozens of scenarios, everyone is more relaxed and has BIG smiles on their faces.
I love taking pictures of people having a good time and not worrying about me taking their picture. It's those candid, spontaneous moments that tell the wedding story.
It's an honor for me to photograph your wedding. Let me tell your wedding day story. Booking now for 2019 and 2020 wedding photography and wedding reception photography. Contact me at jollysiendaphotography.com, Tel: 240-899-5295, or email@example.com. Looking forward to hearing from you!
