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.


I had such an amazing evening hanging out with Samantha + Camden last September, and capturing these adorable Golden Beach Engagement photos in Port Angeles! They were seriously such a laid back + sweet couple, and I could not be happier with how the photos turned out!

I am so pumped to be sharing these incredible photos from Jackie and Wades warm and moody fall wedding last October, in Tieton, Washington. I seriously cannot even begin to describe how sentimental and unique this wedding day was.

I am so excited to be sharing the photos from Haley and Jason’s Rustic and Boho Forest wedding. These two’s day took place back on a beautiful, sunny day in June, and I am so excited to be sharing the photos with you all!

Ana + Aric blew me away during their Moody Romantic Fall Elopement at Lake Crescent Lodge! This gorgeous, oceanside lodge is hidden away inside Olympic National Park in Washington, and it was perfect for bringing this couples vision to life!

I am so incredibly excited to share these extremely beautiful and empowering photos from Bradi’s moody and sultry boudoir session with me, Flame by Sam. While I often find myself shooting weddings or families, boudoir photoshoots mean so much to me, and have a very special place in my heart.

I had such an amazing day with Hanna and Shane celebrating their love during their beachy and intimate backyard wedding in Whidbey Island, Washington. Their colorful and romantic ceremony took place during a gorgeous spring day in May and I honestly could not have picked a better day for these two. Hanna and Shane shared such an authentic and genuine day with their family and friends that left me smiling all day long.

Kirsti and Gavin had such a beautiful, elegant and glamorous dinner party wedding in Pasco, Washington, and I am so excited to share the photos from this super fun evening with you all! I’ve definitely taken a bit of time to get around to this day… so much time, that these two lovers have already started a family of 4! Regardless, this wedding day was so stunning and I could not be more excited to finally be sharing it with you.

I am so excited to share these beautiful, glowy and moody photos from this adorable families maternity session last fall. I met up with these two and their sweet, giggly babe at Hurricane Ridge inside of Washington’s Olympic National Park.

You guys, I am SO EXCITED to share the photos from Seth and Destiny’s absolutely breathtaking, romantic wedding in the PNW! As a Washington native myself, nothing makes me happier than being tucked away in the trees of the PNW, celebrating love with my amazing clients.
