I'm not going to lie and say that I've always been a photographer, I haven't. I actually discovered photography while in college, and like most responsible college students, I used some student loan money to buy my first camera. I also haven't always been a wedding, or even a people photographer. My first love was landscape photography, specifically night photography and cityscapes. But eventually it became apparent that people pay a lot more than buildings to have their photos taken, so I began my journey into working with humans in 2011.
I think my landscape roots influence the type of images I take, and the way I see scenes today. I love working with couples, I love watching the dynamic between two people in love, and being able to share a few magic moments with them. I try to interject fun and a generous sized slice of goofy into my client experiences, to take away the awkward and weirdness of someone being a few feet away from you with a camera aimed at your faces.
I'm a PNW native, and absolutely love it here. It's one of the most diverse areas in the country, both in terms of topography and geography, but also in terms of the people who call this beautiful corner of the world home.
