For me, life is best lived organically. People and the moments fill my soul far before things will never satisfy me. I get caught up in emotion and I give my heart to the couples I work with. They give me their trust and I give them a warm, welcoming experience and artwork they’re proud to share with friends and family. 


working with us

From your initial meeting, to your engagement session, and for everything in between, I will love to be as involved as you find helpful. I am certainly not a wedding planner, but navigating the world of weddings is often quite the undertaking, and I am happy to help in any way that I can. I've found that when we are able to build a connection, as well as a mutual trust in the process, we are able to capture the true essence of your relationship.

To get to know each other and talk about your plans, I would love for you to come to my studio for a pot of English tea and delicious biscuits. And If you prefer to have a beer I’ll have some great craft options on hand, made right here in Snohomish.

Wedding collections start at $5000. Portrait sessions begin at $650. Customizable options are also available. Contact us to learn more.


Being a wedding photographer is pure joy for me because it’s the perfect fit for my personality. I love nothing more than getting to know couples and finding out about all the reasons they decided to get engaged and their dreams for a wonderful marriage. I guess it reminds me of why I love my family so much and what marriage means to me.

I naturally attract people who march to their own drummer, laugh easily and find the beauty in nature, and I try my best to accommodate their individual needs. 
Here are some of the questions I hear most often, and answers I hope will put you at ease.

How do we secure our date?
You may secure your date online or after our first in-person meeting. A $1500 retainer will ensure the date is on my calendar and that you are my only priority on your wedding day. Your full balance will be paid one month before your celebration.

What if we are shy in front of the camera?
Many people are until they start having fun. If I have a super power, it is my ability to make people smile and feel seen in a positive light. I am confident you’ll be surprised how easily you get comfortable in front of my camera.

Will you take photos of moments or portraits?
Lots of both! I think every couple deserves wonderful photographs of their family and friends and lots of emotional moments that tell their story. I can’t wait to hear more about yours.

When will we receive our photos?
Four to eight weeks after your wedding you’ll come back into the studio for your big reveal where you will see your wedding images on the big screen for the first time. It’s such a fun part of my process, where we laugh, cry and reminisce on all the beauty of your day over a glass of wine or cup of tea. At this time we also work on your album design together so that you can have that in your hands shortly after your wedding day.

Do you travel?
Yes, although almost all of my weddings and elopements are in Woodinville/ Seattle or Snohomish County. I know the area and the professionals here like the back of my hand which makes it easy for me to stay busy on the homefront.

Other questions…?
If you’re curious about anything I offer or how we can work together best, fire away. I am looking forward to answering your questions.
