Hagen and Natalie’s Engagement

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 thanks to R.J. Deguzman’s help with reflector and off-camera speedlight work, we were still able to get some good captures. […]

DeadMau5 at the Paramount Theatre 2011

For the second year in a row, I was fortunate enough to shoot DeadMau5 for the Seattle Weekly. I shot the entire show with just my Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8, and its lightning-quick focusing proved to be very invaluable. The show was amazing as usual and I was able to get some great crowd photos. You can see all the published photos at the Seattle Weekly link above, but here are a few of my favorites: See more here:  https://photos.arminausejo.com/Events/DeadMau5-8-18-2011/

Kaylee Alana at Coulon Park

After a couple rain/weather delays, Kaylee and I were finally able to go do some fashion photography on a beautiful summer’s day at Renton’s Coulon Park.  With plenty of assistance from Erica May, Kaylee and I were able to take photos of her in three different outfits, timing it perfectly to end our shoot at sunset.  I took this opportunity to test out my new Nikkor 70-200mm ƒ2.8 VR-II for some portraits, then switched over to the trusty 24-70mm ƒ2.8 […]

Pasta Carbonara from Cheeky Cafe

Cheeky Cafe Food Photos

  When my friend Kiyomi asked me to take photos of the food at her restaurant, Cheeky Cafe, I simply could not say no.  She told me to come hungry, so I brought Wence, Carlos, and Erica with me and we all left with a food coma that would last the entire weekend.  I cannot praise the food at Cheeky Cafe any more; if you live in the Seattle area, you absolutely need to stop by and enjoy some comfort […]

Blue Scholars VIP Party

Blue Scholars Kickstarter VIP Party

Blue Scholars are undoubtedly my favorite hip-hop artists.  With roots from the University of Washington and made up of just “one DJ and one MC, ” they’ve always made music that speaks to me, not just through the beats and lyrics, but also through the connection I have as a Filipino American and University of Washington alumnus.  To raise money for their latest album, “Cinemetropolis,” they used Kickstarter to “sign a record deal with the people.”  I gladly pledged money […]
