  1. Melissa and Dave’s Seattle Canlis Wedding

    29 Jul 2016

    I got my feet wet in photography shooting weddings in the UK and for several years they made up 80% of my business. Nearly every weekend was spent traveling to some part of England or Scotland I’d never been to, and it was a great way for me to get…


  2. Crown Royal Shoot in Snoqualmie with MKTG Inc.

    27 Mar 2016

    I occasionally get thrown event photography jobs from an old friend, Kirk. He is a Seattle-based photographer and if he double-books himself or can’t do a shoot, he recommends me to his client. So some of the shoots I get via Kirk come to me last–minute, but they’re all well…


  3. Late Summer Shoot with Sedona in Bellevue

    27 Mar 2016

    Shooting with Sedona at sunrise near one of Bellevue’s best-kept secret lakes. Have you ever found someone to work with through Instagram? I hadn’t but this shoot changed things. First, let me back up - in a resolution to get in shape, I started running four miles every day last…


  4. Seattle Photographer in England for a 1930’s-Inspired Fashion Shoot

    30 Sep 2015

    I really can’t say enough good things about our last vintage fashion shoot.  It was one of those times where all the details came together and it was a completely smooth experience.  I often try to prepare myself for a few things going wrong so if they do, I don’t…

  6. A Grease-Inspired Photo Shoot by Alexandra Gunnoe

    22 Aug 2015

    If you’ve been reading my blogs, you might remember I met this stunning girl on a bus in the middle of the British countryside and did a test shoot with her in an abandoned control tower from WWII in Devon.  For a Seattle photographer used to a completely different backdrop…


  7. A Bit of Press, Thanks to Jalopnik

    15 Aug 2015

    This bit of press happened awhile ago but I’ve been so busy with editing and shoots that I’m late with the news.  Los Angeles-based writer, Jason Torchinsky, put together this article on Jalopnik, a popular car enthusiast website, detailing The Vintage Bus Project.  As the article discusses, we did end…

    Okay so we now have a few vintage fashion shoots under our belt.  My creative team has been amazing, far exceeding my expectations, and we’re really settling into a groove.  Our next shoot will be a 50’s Youth Culture themed shoot, with Brooke, the 16 year old girl I met…


  9. Abandoned Buildings Make the Best Photography Sets by Alexandra Gunnoe

    26 Jul 2015

    So I’m doing things a bit backward but I wanted to include a blog post about an old, abandoned building I stumbled upon awhile ago, even though I’ve already posted the outcome of our photography shoot here.  I had seen this really intriguing building from the side of the road…

    Moving on from our last 1940’s-Inspired shoot, our next 1950’s-Inspired vintage fashion photography shoot went so, so well and I am really proud of what we pulled off.  There wasn’t as much stress as some of the earlier vintage bus shoots, as we had all worked together before, and I…

  13. When the Model Cancels on your Shoot at the 11th Hour by Alexandra Gunnoe

    22 Jul 2015

    I knew the first shoot went too well.  Everyone was professional, friendly and on time.  It set up my expectations for smooth sailing from there on out, but now I know better.  Don’t get me wrong, this 1940’s inspired shoot ended up great.  But I almost had a nervous breakdown…

  15. Fashion Photography Mood Boards by Alexandra Gunnoe

    21 Jul 2015

    Not too long ago I decided to photograph 10 separate fashion shoots over a few months featuring gorgeous vintage buses from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. I held castings for models, hair stylists, fashion stylists, and makeup artists, and ended up gathering a really brilliant creative team to help me…


  16. Girl on a Bus by Alexandra Gunnoe

    21 Jul 2015

    As a photographer I’m constantly keeping my eyes open for interesting people to shoot.  And when I come across someone who inspires me I almost always have a card on hand.  This was not one of those times.  I was in the middle of the British countryside on a bus…
