  • Hi! I’m Bre…

    ...and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Seattle, WA. I'm brand new to the Pacific Northwest, having spent my entire life in sunny California. I photograph weddings all along the west coast but will happily travel just about anywhere. I love photographing laughs, tears, and moments that you will want to remember forever. Thanks for taking the time to visit my site and I hope that something here makes you smile.

Molly & Charles’ Hollywood Schoolhouse Wedding | Woodinville, WA

If you were to look up the definition of “anti-bridezilla” or “low-key bride” you’d find a photo of Molly. I can’t say enough good things about the laid back, beautiful wedding day of Molly and Charles. They had planned an outdoor ceremony at the end of August but in typical Seattle fashion, it rained. The ceremony was moved inside without a single bit of stress and the rest of their day proceeded as planned. The Hollywood Schoolhouse is a perfect venue for either an indoor or outdoor wedding! Molly has two older sisters whom I’ve photographed before. It was great to see so many familiar faces and Molly’s mom made me feel like an invited guest instead of a hired photographer. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to photograph this special day for Molly and Charles. Congrats again, you two!

Marni & Andrew’s Los Altos History Museum Wedding

This was my 3rd wedding this year at the lovely Los Altos History Museum. At the time that Marni and Andrew booked me, this was going to be my very first Jewish wedding. I talked a lot with Marni’s mom about the details of the day and she lovingly explained the traditions. What struck me the most about Marni, Andrew, their traditions, and their wedding was that family is truly the most important part of a marriage ceremony. Each tradition focuses on the couple and those closest to them, having their parents, siblings, extended family, and honored friends surround them for the Tisch, Badekin, and Hamotzi. While some weddings feel a bit tense and chalked with nerves, this wedding day was jovial, happy, and full of love. A Jewish wedding is a true celebration and I hope that I get to photograph a lot more of them.

Thank you Marni and Andrew for allowing me to witness such a beautiful day through the lens of my camera. Your wedding holds a special place in my heart.
