A look back at the year in photos that was 2018. Photos from Seattle, Berlin, Dallas, and Shanghai, along with a McLaren 570S and the Vegas Golden Knights!

Life caught up to me quite a bit in 2017. I took the least number of photos this year than any other year since I started shooting professionally, with the vast majority of the photos revolving around friends and family. There were even entire months where I didn’t even shoot anything. That’s not a bad thing though, since some of […]

2016 went by like a blur for me. It didn’t take anywhere near as many photos as I have in previous years, mainly due to life changes such as taking a role at eBay as the Global Digital Marketing Manager for the eBay Partner Network. Life is busy, but busy is good, and through it all I still found time […]

I recently received an email from Griffin Brugger, a student at Seattle’s The Center School, asking if I’d be willing to do an interview with him regarding photography. I was happy to oblige, and the questions he asked were so good that I felt they’d be perfect to include in a blog post.

My BFF Sidnee and her fiance Mia came to visit over New Year’s, so we used the gorgeous (but cold) Seattle weather to take some engagement photos over at Discovery Park. The sun was bright and a bit overpowering, so Wence assisting with the reflector was more than enough to get the proper lighting. I’m so happy for Sidnee and […]

What a year, 2014 was! I may not have taken as many photos as I had in previous years, but I’d say the quality is up there amongst the best in recent memory. Rather than taking photos of anything and everything, I ended up being a bit more selective for the most part this year, and really took my time. […]

Four years ago, I made the switch to full frame, upgrading from my trusty Nikon D300 to the Nikon D700. By the time I made the switch, the D700 was already available for  2 1/2 years, so its reputation and capabilities were already well-established. Full frame was like night and day after coming from a cropped sensor camera, and while […]

What an absolutely gorgeous day for a wedding! Clear skies, beautiful surroundings, and Mt. Rainier watching over all of us made for just about a perfect day all around. Read all about it and see all the photos here on my weddings site: https://www.arminweddings.com/2014/09/szelachowski-triplett-wedding/

My good friend Alan is getting married next year, and I’m honored to be a groomsman! Since I won’t be photographing the wedding, he asked me to take his engagement photos instead. Check them out on my weddings site here: https://www.arminweddings.com/2014/09/alan-and-krystals-engagement/  

2013 was a very successful and productive year for my photography. Check out all of the different things that I’ve photographed this year!

What happens when one of your good friends needs your help for a 3-day event that you were almost completely unprepared for? You rise to the occasion, that’s what you do! Faizan and Hien’s wedding was a blast, and I was honored to be able to capture it all through photos. Read all about it here on my Armin Weddings […]

I had my first engagement shoot in quite awhile last Friday! Check out the photos and write-up on my weddings site here: https://www.arminweddings.com/2013/03/faizan-and-hien-engagement/

2011 proved to be a banner year in terms of the sheer number of photos I’ve taken and how I feel I’ve grown as a photographer. I shot a variety of different subjects, helped mentor and advise a great group of photographers, and helped NWMotiv establish itself as a major media player in the local automotive scene. Rather than bore […]

Hagen is Garret’s brother, so I was more than happy to take their engagement photos, along with his upcoming wedding as well. Hagen and Natalie were going with a nautical theme for their wedding and wanted some shots with the Seattle skyline behind them, so Alki was the obvious choice for some good locations. We lost light pretty fast, but […]

My cousin Liezl got married to her long-time boyfriend and I was able to make the wedding on New Year’s Eve, despite the fact that I was originally supposed to be out of town! I wasn’t the hired photographer for this wedding, so I was able to do a little experimentation with lens choices and post-processing. Please let me know […]

The hearts of many male (and probably a few female) Subaru owners broke over night on December 4, 2010 when the (in)famous Stephanie French said “I do” to the love of her life, Travis Wiegand. I had the honor of capturing these moments and more at their wedding in Bellingham, Washington. It also marked the debut of my new Nikon […]

My good friends for the past 8 years, Erik and Tana, finally tied the knot and asked me to help photograph their wedding.  It was probably the most gorgeous day in Seattle this year and things really couldn’t be more perfect.  Please follow this link on my ArminWeddings.com website for more photos: https://www.arminweddings.com/2010/06/allas-main-wedding/

Two of my old friends from high school, Bryce and Jenya, had me shoot their short and informal wedding.  It was a total blast!  Please follow this link on my ArminWeddings.com website for more photos: https://www.arminweddings.com/2010/04/barrick-melnik-wedding/

I look back at 2009 with mixed feelings.  Certainly some things went my way, but other things really didn’t.  Nevertheless, I’m happy to see 2010 arrive and simply hope for the best.  In looking back at 2009, I decided to post up my favorite photos of 2009, choosing one photo from each month.  Voila: January

December 11, 2009 marks a momentous ocassion. Thanks to help and encouragement from Garret Alpers, “Armin Ausejo Photography” is now officially a recognized business in Washington state.  To help get this business off the ground, I constructed a new website dedicated to my wedding photography.  I’m going to making some major efforts to really get my wedding photography going, so […]

My good and long time friends, Russell and Suzy finally tied the knot on the 24th in Redmond, WA. It was a relatively small wedding, with both the ceremony itself and the reception taking place at the Clise Mansion in Marymoor Park.  I teamed up with my good friend and fellow photographer Tanya Jose, since we’re both friends of Russell […]

Wence and I made the trek out to Yakima to shoot Ryan and Rachel’s wedding.  We made the wise decision to drive over on Friday night rather than Saturday morning and thanks to Wence’s driving, we made it from Seattle to our hotel in Yakima in almost exactly 2 hours, which included a break to get fast food in Ellensburg.  […]

What an epic wedding!  This was my first wedding in awhile and I was anxious to see how well the D300/D200 combo would work out.  The D300 really shined, but I have to say that the D200 was really starting to show its age, especially with the high ISO noise.  Nevertheless, I think the photos still turned out quite well.  […]
