Hi, I’m Emma. And I’m not just your elopement photographer. I’m also your confidant, a fierce believer in squeezing the most out of life, your exploration comrade and support system throughout this beautiful experience. I’m a Washington native, and Seattle is my home.

I grew up hiking along the Mountain Loop Highway with a dad that used to mountaineer in the 80's, and would often play in solitude in the yard with my mom’s chunky camcorder - taking photos of the trees, rivers, bird nests, flowers, and of course, our family pets.

In 2016 I studied photojournalism on a study abroad program at the University of Washington, and that’s where things really took off. I loved photographing humans, architecture, nature... all of it threading together in a way that really made sense for me.

When we create together, I carry these promises with me along every step of the way —

what eloping means to me and why you should elope in the pacific northwest

As an elopement photographer here in the Pacific Northwest, it might be tempting to say I'm only into this because the photos can be pretty epic... and while that is of course true, eloping means so much more to me than that.

Eloping is about empowerment. It's about looking at the ways of the world we live in, and bravely choosing something different. Something that fits you better.

Eloping can be a homage to the natural world - it's more sustainable than a big wedding, it can take place in one of the Pacific Northwest's many ecosystems that speak to you, and it can bring you to a state where you feel more calm and alive at the same time.

Personally, I'm not just an elopement photographer. I'm someone who is obsessed with getting to know people, creating days that they'll cherish forever, and firmly believes that life is precious and we should just do what we want.
