Relaxed + Romantic documentary style photography. I capture things just as they are, to bring you back to that day and make you feel all the same feels.


Perched on the shores of Hood Canal, the Alderbrook Resort & Spa is a hidden gem of the Pacific Northwest. With breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains and a tranquil, wooded setting, it’s the perfect place to tie the knot. And that’s exactly what Stacie & Sean did on their wedding day.

Surrounded by family and friends, they exchanged vows in a picturesque ceremony that perfectly captured the magic of the Pacific Northwest. From the stunning natural surroundings to the luxurious accommodations and top-notch amenities, Alderbrook Resort proved to be the ultimate wedding destination. Join us as we dive into the details of this unforgettable celebration and take a closer look at what makes Alderbrook Resort such a special place to say ‘I do’.

Ultimate Classy PNW Wedding

If you know me, you know that I spend a lot of time outdoors. Since I live on the Olympic Peninsula, I’ve got access to mountains and ocean within steps of my house. A typical PNW wedding in the PNW wonderland is complete with trees and wood and the ocean. The Alderbook resort does this so well, but ALSO adds so much class. It is a perfect blend of weddings.

You’ll see that Stacie brought in timeless, classic details that complemented her surroundings. I loved shooting their portraits in front of all the greenery. And if you think clouds will ruin your wedding day, just look at their photos! Clouds create such an even, beautiful light on everyone’s faces. My number one goal is always that the people in my photos feel and look their best.

Love of Tradition

It’s pretty trendy to ditch trends these days, and while I am all-in when you create a unique wedding experience, it’s also emotionally touching when people bring in traditions to their day. Whether it’s breaking the glass at the end of a Jewish ceremony or making me cry during the mother/son dance, I’m all about seeing you and capturing you in traditions.
