I’m so happy that I got to photograph the Peters family during their short stay in Washington. The October colors were showing off for us that day and the outfits they wore complimented everything so nicely. Their youngest didn’t want anything to do with me or my camera, so we just focused on playing and […]

When Ashleigh and Malik asked me asked me to be their wedding photographer for their elopement in the Lake Quinault Rainforest, to say I was excited would be an understatement. I was thrilled!

I have to say… This was the first time I’ve ever photographed a couple who met online from separate countries and fell in love. The majority of their guests were also friendships that formed online and have maintained for years – literally flying in from all across the country to celebrate their two friends. It […]

I had a lot of fun photographing the Helser’s family portraits a few weeks ago. They have some gorgeous land out in a rural area of Shelton, that was the perfect location for their energetic boys and dogs to run around on. I love photographing families that are full of energy and have a good […]
