About | Description:
I’m a lighthearted, tree-hugging, bad ass multi-tasking, cat loving, adventurous spirit. I believe in trying new things, traveling as much as possible and loving my people hard. Weekends are for weddings, outdoor adventures, family, farmers’ markets, trying new restaurants, or chillin’ in my hot tub with a negroni and a Nat Geo.
Years ago I spent all my time abroad photographing my way through street markets in search of mind-blowing food and handmade artwork to bring home. I loved riding scooters through palm tree groves and getting lost. I fell in love with capturing different cultures, expanding my perspective, and all the beautiful chaos. I was living the dream and letting the world’s cultures wash over me. I’ve been lucky enough to explore over 40 countries and continue to take trips somewhere new each year to keep the inspiration alive.
Having said that, the PNW is where I call home. I was born and raised in Seattle and will always be in love with the smell of rain, mountains in every view, and going on awesome outdoor adventures.
Photography chose me and I embraced it. Self taught and armed with a passion for documenting life, photography gives me balance, perspective, and allows me to see things in a different light. Making a living doing something I’m passionate about is pretty much the best thing ever. I love building new relationships, supporting my community, and create something bigger than myself.
Nowadays you’ll find me decked in camera gear rallying a rowdy wedding party, collaborating with business owners to launch their new brand, or on a mountain top with a newly engaged couple laughing our asses off. My clients believe in my ability to tell their story. From that vulnerability and trust comes honest images that make them feel understood and confident.
It’s an honor. Every. Single. Time.
MY TRAVEL JOURNEY
Not many know this, but I actually started out as a nature and travel photographer. Experiencing other cultures gives me perspective and is a constant source of inspiration for my work. I travel every year, so whether you’re getting hitched in another state or somewhere abroad, I can follow!
Destination weddings and elopements are my jam, so don’t let travel costs stop you from starting the conversation! I’m super flexible and would love to see how we can make this adventure happen! Whether you need honeymoon location ideas or just want to be inspired, my travels are all below for you to explore.
Let’s focus on having a good time and creating candid, authentic photos that encompass all the awesome that is you. I’m not just a ‘vendor’ I’m an artist, a friend, and a person who cares deeply. I will literally be pouring my heart into whatever we’re working on together by creating a visual story for you to enjoy and appreciate for years to come.
I connect with people that value photography and can appreciate the blood, sweat, and tears that go into making beautiful images. I give everything I have to my clients; my knowledge, experience, positive energy, ideas, and expertise. Let’s not hold back, let’s be in the moment, let’s be awkward and laugh about it. Authentic moments and movement, not cliche cookie cutter poses and staged re-enactments of Pinterest poses. I swear your favorite images will be the ones you least expect. The imperfect. The unexpected.
EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH A CONNECTION.
I like to think I’m in the business of making friends. My hope is that laughter will guide our time together and that we’ll feel like old friends by the end. Connecting with your photographer as a person is just as important as liking their work. Having fun together is a must and one of the main reasons I turned this love of mine into a profession in the first place. The best images come from a vulnerable place, those moments when your guard is down and you are…well…YOU.
I take a limited number of clients each year and try to only work with people who connect with my work, vision, and can trust the process and let go. Every person I work with is a constant reminder that everyone has a different story. An important story, that needs to be told in a way that connects to them individually. There’s no one size fits all and I will go out of my way to make sure you feel that during our time together. I’m deeply committed and passionate about what I do and I hope to share that with you!
