Seattle Wedding Photographer: My Story

Early in my photography career, a family member passed away unexpectedly. I was unable to attend their funeral due to a wedding I was scheduled to photograph. The day before the wedding, and the day of the funeral, I was scrolling through their Facebook page looking at all of the photos people were sharing along with their favorite memories. It was then that I saw the importance of these photographs.

I now saw wedding photographs in a way that I had not understood before. Photos are the closest thing we have in real life of a persons memory and feeling of those no longer with us.  

Right there I promised myself that when I photograph every wedding with this mindset. To get the best possible photos for the couple, their family and friends. I had a renewed purpose and connection to the importance a photograph holds. Long after our dear ones are gone.

About six months later, I found out that the father of the groom from that same wedding had passed away unexpectedly. The photos I had taken of his dad started to show up on facebook. It was my wedding photos that became super valuable to the couple and their most valuable way to look back on their dad’s life. Reaffirming the mean of what I do. It is with this mindset that I approach each wedding and everything I do.

This reaffirms the meaning of every picture that I take. As a Seattle wedding photographer I honor this promise to myself at every wedding  

People are the biggest reason WHY I photograph weddings.

I love many things about photographing weddings. But without the added flavor that is so unique to each couple, I don’t know if I would be a wedding photographer. I truly cherish getting to know the couples that I work with – their story and relationships make my role interesting, dynamic, and fulfilling. 

I have been a Seattle wedding photographer for many years and have meet many people over those years. Everyone is different bringing a different perspective into every story.

You may think you know a standard wedding, but the STORY is always different.

The story of a wedding day is never the same. There is always a different set of past stories and the next chapter of that story is what plays out on your wedding day.

Focusing on the many unique people throughout your wedding day always excites me to tell the story of you in a fun, dynamic and creative way. The stories are what you will think back on. The things that made you laugh or the things that made you cry will be the stories you relive after your wedding.

People + stories = moments.

Small moments string together, comprising the overall wedding day. I capture timeless moments showing beyond how the day looked, but more of how it felt. Moments are fragile and fleeting. I bring a calm presence and eliminate distraction, allowing the moments to flourish.

Candid moments of the day help narrate the true story of your wedding.

    The moments during your wedding day are going to be the things you want to relive again, they will make you feel that wedding day love, and they are going to show you the moments you forgot.

    Creative Wedding Portraits

    I love the creative portrait time on the wedding day or during the day after session. My favorite thing is to create a portrait that is unexpected. My hope is to get portraits that look like art.

    Whether you it's a Seattle Wedding or a Destination Wedding I love to incorporate the location in my photos.

    I keep poses simple so the portraits feel natural almost like moments themselves.

    Engagements Photos

    I love engagement sessions because it's basically two hours of fun creative portraits while getting to know my couples even more. It is a great way to get to know your wedding photographer more.

    The most common thing I hear at the very start of an engagement session is "We are so nervous.” Following up, ten minutes later by, "this is not bad at all. It is actually pretty fun!”
