Your Wedding Experience

Art Focused Storytelling
Your wedding is not just a one day event. Many months have gone into planning and preparation to culminate in a once in a lifeime experience for friends and family as well as the bride and groom. I will visually document events leading up to the big day: dress shopping, cake shopping, wine tasting, rehersal dinner, etc. And of course your wedding day with all the last minute prep, nerves and jitters. It's not just about pictures, it's about the experience. And it doesn't end there. I will still be there on the day after or even at the honeymoon if you so desire. That is the complete wedding experience.

I have been photographing weddings for about 5 years now. Before that I did a lot of landscape photography. I have traveled to Ireland, France, Greece, Italy, Canada and Mexico. I also spent 3 weeks trekking in Nepal on my way to Mt. Everest.

I love the fact that I can be a part of someone's special day and preserve that memory for them and their family. I lived in Washington for 50+ years then moved to Arizona for a year then moved to California in 2013. I have a 24 year old son who still lives in Washington. I'm planning to move back to Washington in the fall to be closer to family. I have shot many weddings in the Seattle area and feel it is a uniquely inspiring place to get married.
