Hug Point Love Session | Arch Cape, OR | Amanda + Danny

July 17, 2019

After running around in the crashing waves we had a chance to enjoy the sunset. Amanda and Danny kept me company during a branding shoot for my business a couple months ago. I hired Alayna Erhart to capture me in my element, photographing couples in love. She has such a unique eye and is a […]

Georgetown Engagement Session in Seattle | Daniela + Daniel

March 12, 2019

Two of my favorite parts about being a photographer: 1. Spending time with people in love. 2. Playing, learning, and growing in the art. Six years into this and it feels good to get to a place where I am capable of slowing down and being intentional with what I’m creating. Playing with harsh light, […]

Government Cove Engagement Session | Portland, OR | Kathleen + Sam

January 15, 2019

Moving to a new state has meant a lot of firsts for me; firsts that have been good for both my heart and my growth as an artist. There’s really something special about living somewhere new. For me, it awakens my mind from routine and knocks me back into this perpetual state of awareness and […]

Tressa + Geoff | Engagement session at Lincoln Park

September 26, 2018

Sometimes I don’t have much to say in my blog posts and it’s not necessarily for a lack of feelings or connection with my couples. It’s just that sometimes the word aren’t there quite yet. What I do know is that I feel a strong connection with these two. They are easy to be around, […]

Stacy + Braden | Seattle engagement in Queen Anne Neighborhood

July 5, 2018

Upper Queen Anne holds significance for Stacy and Braden, which worked perfectly because I know this area well and have enjoyed shooting around Parson Gardens before. Unique homes, trees draping over the street, and palms making us feel like we’re somewhere far away from the Seattle Rain. We met for happy hour at Via Tribunali, […]

Kristine + Nick | Washington D.C. in home + city engagement

May 12, 2018

I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how I can be more intentional with my couples. Photographing couples in a way that makes them feel comfortable has always been a top priority for me, so about a year ago I created my “pep talk strategy”.  My go-to method that promotes vulnerability and openness.

Brittany + Julio | wedding in Sayulita Mexico pt. 1

April 11, 2018

Britt & Julio set aside a few hours for us to explore Sayulita but when they were getting ready I immediately fell in love with the white walls and greenery of where they had been living for the week. We started pool side and ended in town eating tacos. Pre-wedding sessions. Can they always be […]

Jennie + Jesse | couples portraits on the bay in oak harbor

May 1, 2017

Jennie & Jesse. Talented artists and humble souls. These two drove all the way from Eastern Washington to do a session with me. A full day of driving, pleasant conversation, a pit stop for lunch and beers, and then a failed attempt to catch a ferry to Friday Harbor. Regardless, these two made things easy […]

Gemma + Matthew | intimate couples portraits at mt. baker

March 30, 2017

Today, there was a moment when we stood together in the wind and the onset of the winter, and far off, a blue mountain of cloud shimmered in the morning air, and I looked at you and saw you’re as much part of the real world as these things, and I’ve never asked them why […]
