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.


This was a VERY rainy engagement session in the Olympic National Park!

What I love about doing boudoir photography is that women come into the studio for so many different reasons. Some do boudoir as a wedding gift for their soon-to-be husband. Sometimes it’s a birthday, Valentine’s Day, Christmas or anniversary gift. Sometimes it’s purely just to celebrate themselves and capture who they are and their bodies at this particular point in their lives. I’ve had women come in after having babies, leaving partners, losing weight or gaining weight. It’s the perfect boost of confidence and reminder that no matter what is going on in life, you deserve to feel beautiful. There are so many different reasons to book a boudoir shoot and every single time, women leave the studio feeling empowered, confident and ready to take on anything. I feel so lucky that I get to offer this awesome experience to my clients!

I am so excited to be sharing these photos with you guys! Jordan and Dustin put together such an incredible, moody and bohemian backyard wedding last August.

I am totally in love with these dreamy, romantic sunset beach maternity photos from my session with Destiny and Seth!

One of my favorite parts about being a photographer is when my clients turn into friends! I’ve been taking family photos for Taylor and Michael for years now, and I always have so much fun with them!

I had so much fun spending the evening with Joyce and Chris, capturing these adorable sunset beach engagement photos!

Rebecca and Ed put together such a gorgeous, classy and romantic estate wedding in July! These two decided to get married at Abeja Winery in Walla Walla, Washington! I seriously LOVE vineyard and winery weddings, and I was so excited to spend the day with them, celebrating their love!

I had such an incredible time celebrating with Carly and Nate in Port Angeles during their rustic and elegant wedding day! Their romantic day took place on a gorgeous, summer day in June at Olympic Peninsula weddings, and I seriously couldn’t have imagined a better day for these two lovers!

I am so excited to be sharing these adorably sweet and intimate photos from Baby Mercers newborn session last May! While I love sharing photos from weddings with my amazing couples, newborn and family sessions are just as special to me!

With summer coming to an end and fall just around the corner, I wanted to share one of my favorite Cozy and Moody Fall Wedding Day’s from last October! Jinoos and Justin put such a warm, colorful and cozy day together, and reminded me why I LOVE fall so much.
