believe in the

more than photos

Journey

Let's be real here, photos can sometimes be uncomfortable. I whole heartedly believe that the way you feel in front of my camera will make all the difference in the quality of your photos. On your wedding day I will be with you every step of the way, cracking jokes, tearing up with your mother during the first dance, helping you delicately wipe away tears of laughter without messing up your makeup, all of it.

Choosing a photographer is not only choosing someone whose style of photos you like, but also choosing someone to trust with your memories, someone who will be there to make you feel comfortable and make sure you look your best, without ruining the moment or making you feel posed.

This is where my years of experience play a large role in your wedding day. I have been around the block a time or two when it comes to wedding days, and that means that on this wonderful day of celebration, the last thing you need to worry about is making sure the photos that you wanted are being taken. You can trust me to capture these beautiful and fleeting moments, so that you can look back on your wedding day and relive all of those special moments over and over again!





We aim to give you more than you thought possible. After all, you deserve it.

Adventure

Makenzy made me feel like I got a slice of heaven as I looked through the photos. She takes the extra time and goes the extra mile to make sure we feel comfortable and happy. She makes sure to get what you want as a client, but also willing to let you know what looks best and may be a good idea. She is a true artist. She has an eye for capturing the perfect moments that are meant to be remembered. Not to mention she is patient, kind, loving and great to work with. What more could you ask for in a photographer?

Videographer

If you’re looking for me you will most likely find me outside, with my camera in hand, and my son in tow. The Pacific Northwest has been home to be for my entire life, and as much as I have traveled, I still couldn’t think of a better place to spend my time. I first picked up my camera almost 8 years ago now, and the way that it allowed me to pull these hidden parts out of people just felt so right. Being a photographer has changed me. It has given me this space to explore people, what they love about themselves, and more importantly what they don’t. 

I have been a professional wedding photographer for over five years and have photographed countless couples along their journeys. I have been featured in magazines, photography blogs, and honed in my skills through workshops and online courses. Every year I continuously pursue further education in photography and update my gear religiously to ensure you will receive the highest quality service from me. 

I believe in lovingly guiding you and your partner during our time together in ways that feel natural to you, never forcing smiles or posing you to “perfection” but rather encouraging you to be yourselves and working with you to make sure you feel comfortable and confident during our time together! I want you to look at your photos and know that they reflect who you truly are.

I am an avid fisherman, I love a good cold beer, I think that puppies and babies make everything better. If you want to meet up for a few brews and a pizza and talk about your wedding day dreams I am your gal! Let’s make a date and brainstorm a seriously epic adventure for you and the person you love most.
