For most brides, the task of wedding planning is the single biggest planning event that most will undertake in our lives. A big part of that planning is selecting your wedding photographer. In fact, when you look at it, your wedding photographer is one of the most important vendor choices you'll make. Since the beginning, our studio has become one of the most sought after professional wedding photographers in the area. Our specialty - high quality, yet affordable wedding photography, videography, photo booth and wedding coordination services. Our team uses a documentary style, story telling approach to every wedding. Understanding your vision and is key to getting the best wedding photographs. Your wedding day is the story of your lives, and our goal is to capture and tell that story in a way that expresses emotion and and detail. Just as photojournalism tells a story – documentary photography takes those same images and brings life to them and explains the story leading up to them in pictures. The end result allows you to not only look at your pictures, but the essence captivates your imagination and allows you to relive your wedding through our photographs.
By selecting our studio for your wedding, our goal isn't to simply take pictures at your wedding. Our ambition is to discover and understand your vision and expectations for the photographs on your special day. Our process choreographs your day and our non-intrusive direction puts you at ease. Knowing what's important to you and how you want your story told is paramount. The key to creating prized and cherished wedding photographs lies in knowing how you want to remember your wedding. And the answer to that question is different and unique with every couple we meet and for every wedding we photograph. It's not the "what" question we want to answer. It's the "why". But in the end, it's these kinds of details that ensure you'll be happy with the high quality and personalized service we provide to you. The better we know you, the better we'll be able to photograph your wedding. And in the end, our pictures will speak for themselves and you're going to love what we give you.
As your photographer, your experience with us doesn't start or end the day of your wedding. We'll get to know you before the wedding, starting with the day we first meet. We'll be with you during your entire wedding and reception, capturing the most important – the most intimate moments for you so you can relive them years from now. We'll then carefully cull through, categorize and process each photograph through a vigorous post-production process. The final photographs we provide to you will be unique and exclusive of each other. Each photograph tells its own story, and our mission is to uncover that story for you.
We hope that your first encounter with our studio is only the beginning. Many of our clients develop a lifetime relationship with us at their photographer of choice for the events in life that come along later, like anniversaries, pregnancies, ]newborn and infants, boudoir (for those special romantic occasions) and more. Our studio proudly offers family portrait photography as well.
Whether you're having a small get together or a large 200+ guest wedding, we offer a unique approach that blends creative elements with the best experience designed to match your personality. As you know, no two weddings are alike. Your wedding day is the first chapter in the story of your lives together…and our job is to capture every aspect of your wedding day, from your interaction together down to the details and everything in between.

Places we're familiar with
If it's in Seattle, chances are we've been there. Great wedding venues like Golf Club at Newcastle, Hotel 1000, The Edgewater Hotel, the Seattle Aquarium, Lake Union Cafe, the Westin in Bellevue and more. Weddings in the Seattle area are super fun since we enjoy a great atmosphere year round.
Marysville gives a lot of great options for wedding and engagement photography, from the Marysville Opera House (which coincidentally is where we got married in 2005) to Jennings Park, Kayak Point and the Tulailip Casino.
One of our favorite wedding venues, the Monte Cristo Ballroom is located in the heart of Downtown Everett. A short drive from the Everett Waterfront and the Naval Base, there are quite a few opportunities for a great wedding location. Also in Everett, the Everett Golf and Country Club gives you a nice country club style wedding option.
The heart of Seattle's wedding industry lies in Snohomish. Nestled in the farmlands of Snohomish County, we've had the opportunity to photograph at some of the area's greatest wedding venues. Lord Hill Farms, French Creek Estates, Craven Farms, Hidden Meadows, Anthea Ballroom, Bell Chapel Golf Club at Echo Falls, and the Feather Ballroom are great locations for weddings of any size, style or budget.
Nested in some less familiar parts of Snohomish County are some really great wedding venues. Natures Connection Place is located just north of Arlington along WA Highway 9 and Tazer Valley Farm, which is a great venue south of Stanwood.
Halfway between Seattle and the Canadian Border lies the farmlands of Skagit County. We've had the opportunity to take memorable photographs at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, Beau Lodge, Grand Willow Lodge, Northern State Hospital and Anacortes.
