On July 12th, 2022 Levi and Abby became Mr. and Mrs. Keltner at their Anacortes, Wa wedding! It was such an honor to be a part of this celebration with their families and friends, many I’ve known since I was small. (Shout out to my home town of Anacortes!) Their wedding was held at Wisteria […]

Alex contacted me from his military base on the east coast about proposing to long time girlfriend while on a family vacation to Lake Chelan. We planned out the details for a proposal at Tsillan Cellars after their dinner. It was a beautiful evening with the sun heading down behind the lake as Alex dropped […]

Tsillan Cellars Marriage Proposal

Bella and Erik have been sweethearts since 12 years old and on 6.25.22 they tied the knot to be forever sweethearts as husband and wife at their Manson Wedding! Their wedding was set in the heart of Manson, Washington at a private estate hosted by incredible friends and family. This wedding, however, did not scream […]

6.18.22 was a celebration of the year for John and Angela’s wedding at Siren Songs Winery in Chelan, WA! What a sweet day for a lovely couple. I met John and Angela last summer for their engagement shoot in Lake Chelan. They were so easy to photograph as their kindness just spills out to those […]

It’s that time of year when the juniors are getting excited for their last hurrah at High School as seniors! I’m happy to announce that I’m serving Chelan, Pateros, Brewster, Omak, and Entiat seniors. My sessions are 20-30 minutes in a 30 minute radius of Chelan. Delivering around 30 edited photos in color and black […]

This early spring Lake Chelan surprise proposal was absolute perfection. The couple had never been to the Pacific Northwest and Andrew decided that Lake Chelan would be the picture perfect place to start.  Literally start in so many ways! Andrew contacted local Chelan wedding planner Ellie Haisch to help him plan a dream proposal to […]

There’s a reason I highly suggest to clients to do sunset photos. If you can push your kids to that golden hour time, you’ll get these photos that glow and are so serene. This shoot was in Germany along the Elbe River at high tide. Such a difference from this midday, low tide river shoot. […]

Out on the River Elbe in Hamburg, Germany they had extreme tides that expanded beaches and allowed for some silty mud flat play. This fun German family (who wildly had a connection to Lake Chelan through a high school exchange experience!?!) was all game for taking photos at low tide and high sun. None of […]

A fall styled wedding at Lake Chelan’s Siren Song Winery. The fall came in full force with misting Chelan rain, but we made the most of our cozy time! A huge shout out to the vendors that participated in this shoot. My lovely models were celebrating their one year anniversary and were so excited to […]

Our lovely friends were game to go on a boat date up lake to get some fish and chips and then oblige me to take their pictures as the sunset glowed across Lake Chelan. It was magical and intimate, and I definitely want to re-create this for couples this summer. You could even take a […]

This lovely family fell in love with Chelan and spent much of there time there at their second home while life slowed down in 2020. I was so excited that they wanted to do photos on top of the gorgeous Chelan Butte where you have a 360 vista of the lake, plains, and mountains.  { […]

2 years ago I had the honor of being booked by a sweet couple living in the Midwest for university to shoot their Chelan Rio Vista Winery wedding in the summer or 2021. We had no idea that the in between time would be so insane! Firstly, in February 2020 my little family of four […]
