  • 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.

Melissa & Kris’ Wedding | Swiftwater Cellars and Suncadia Resort | Cle Elem, WA

I wanted a winter wedding in Tahoe when I was planning my wedding back in 2005. Will wouldn’t go for it. I think that winter weddings are so very romantic and I was so excited to learn that Melissa and Kris would be getting married at the Suncadia Resort in January. Their reception was held at the beautiful Swiftwater Cellars in Cle Elem, WA. Cle Elem is a small town nestled on the eastern side of the Cascades. While we didn’t have snow on the ground the trees were dusted with bits of snow and frost. It was a chilly winter wonderland. Perfect.

Melissa, you were one of the most stunning brides I’ve ever seen. As we walked through the Lodge at Suncadia people’s jaws were on the floor. Sure, everyone loves to see people on their wedding day, but I’m sure it was due in large part to how dashing they both looked. A mother of a little girl said to Melissa, “My daughter thinks you’re a princess”!

It was a fun day and one that I won’t soon forget. Thank you for inviting me to such a beautiful place to be a part of your wedding.

I can’t wait to see their wedding film by the talented Medici Studios!

Kara & Patrick’s San Francisco Engagement at the Palace of Fine Arts

Last October I had the opportunity to shoot Kara and Patrick’s engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco and we were given a BEAUTIFUL day. The sun was shining, there was a light breeze, and a crispness to the air. I’ve driven past the Palace of Fine Arts many times but this was my first time getting out and standing beneath the massive structures. There were many other photo sessions taking place while we were there and I can see why it’s a popular destination for photographers. Kara, Patrick, and I laughed as we walked around the grounds and over to the water’s edge to see the Golden Gate Bride and Alcatraz. We marveled at the beautiful homes and pondered what these people do for a living. haha.

Next month I will be traveling back to the Bay Area to photograph their wedding at the Los Altos History museum. I can’t wait!
