Years ago I spent all my time abroad photographing my way through street markets in search of mind-blowing street 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. 
 
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.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, being surrounded by mountains, 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 local 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 and in that vulnerability and trust comes honest images that make them feel confident and understood.  
 
It's an honor. Every. Single. Time.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

Over 200 and counting! I have been a photographer for over 6 years and am so incredible grateful to be invited in people's lives to capture their memories and life experiences. Year after year, I meet new couples and create friendships through our time together. I also continue the journey with most of my couples after their wedding when their family grows or for anniversary sessions!

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I could put myself in a box and throw out some trendy industry words like 'classic' 'photojournalistic' or 'artistic'...but who knows what those truly mean. Words I hear from my clients are fun, colorful, and natural. I'll tell you what, take a look at my work and you tell me!

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My wedding services are fully customizable so you don’t have to make compromises on what you want. If you're not sure what you want or how much coverage you need, I’m happy to walk you through your timeline and details of the day and help you figure out what package works for you. 
 
Wedding coverage starts at $3600. Elopements start at $1300. 
Most of my couples average around $5000 for their wedding package and additional services.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I usually meet clients at my home in Seattle, WA. I'm also happy to grab a coffee or cocktail somewhere close! I'm available for Skype and Google Hang Out calls for those of you out of state or country.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a degree in Fashion Design and Visual Communications. In regards to photography, I'm completely self taught. Experiencing and documenting over 40 countries over 20 years has been the best education I could ask for!

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Whether I'm a third wheel on your wedding day, creating images for your new business, or just swapping travel stories, I'm doing it with passion and pouring my heart into our time together.  
 
I'm in my happy place when working with people who have a lust for life and don't take themselves too seriously. Let's do more than just take photos, let's create an experience and bring you closer together.
