I began my journey in wedding photography during college, offering my services to friends as I pursued my photography degree. Throughout my career, I’ve maintained this same approach. I view you and your guests as friends, and I hope you feel the same way. This is why I never charge by the hour; I wouldn’t leave my friends’ weddings early, nor would I burden them with extra charges for extended coverage. I’m committed to capturing every moment, from your preparations to your departure, and sometimes even beyond.

Your wedding memories will be timeless to you, and I want your photos to be just as timeless. That is why I NEVER follow photography trends. I will never use things like filters or other pre-programmed ways to edit your photos that will make them look like every other photo being edited right now. I go through every photo and edit each one to be the best representation of that single frozen moment in time. I don’t want you to look at your photos 10 years from now and think how outdated they look. My goal is to ensure that when you look at your photos a decade from now, they don’t appear outdated. I want them to be timeless, just as you remember, and something you’ll proudly display for a lifetime.

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography from the University of Washington in 2002 and have been a professional wedding photographer since 1999. While weddings are my specialty, they are not my sole focus. I’m also known for my work in other areas of photography and was honored to receive the Best Wedding Photographer award from Evening Magazine two years in a row.
