Best Federal Way Wedding Photographer



When I first received the email that I had been nominated and won “Best Federal Way Wedding Photographer 2019” I was a little bummed. You see, in 2016 and 2017 I had a photography studio in Federal Way. I knew these awards were for small businesses operating out of a specific city. We no longer operate the studio out of Federal Way.

I sent a letter to the council and let them know I still conduct business in Federal Way often, but am legally registered in Edgewood, Washington now. I thought they would take the award back once they found out.

After reading my email they confirmed that I am indeed keeping the awarded status!

Now that it is officially official, I am so proud of this award. I worked my BUTT off in that Federal Way Studio. My career life was committed to this business in January 2017 when I purchased my “four figure” ring sitting on that studio floor.

I remember all the late winter nights I spent sitting by an electric fire place with my laptop until 2:00am.

I remember signing my contract to be a Federal Way business the day before thanksgiving in 2016 and itching to be there through the holiday. All of the newborns I shot in that studio, the cutest couple on Christmas Eve. The tears over my first online attack. The pride in so many “best gallery yet”!! moments.

My pipe dream became a career in Federal Way, Washington.

I still shoot in Federal Way often. In-fact, I just photographed an elopement there last weekend! A BIG BIG thank you to whomever nominated the studio. I didn’t even know we had been entered.

Tacoma/Seattle…we’re coming for you next. 😉

And we made it. Limbo, no more. Next Chapter Everett Wa. I am sitting between the most glorious floor to ceiling windows soaking in the beginning of my next chapter of life. Downtown Everett is my home, now. I am going on walks, exploring all of the restaurants and pubs, taking the kids to the […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]
