SEATTLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
“Few things in life have greater value than the stories we tell. Within our shared memories the people we love are immortal.
I believe this is why professional wedding photography has such a powerful hold upon our hearts. This technology has given us the ability to turn our stories, into timeless treasures that can be shared across the generations. It is because of the inherent emotional nature of a photograph that I became a Seattle wedding photographer. I have made it my life’s work to bless, share, and define the personal histories of others, in an artistic way.
It is my mission to uncover the beauty that exists in each narrative and give it the reverence it deserves. And as an added layer I choose to donate much of the proceeds from your investment into helping others. By adding this philanthropic element to my Seattle wedding photography business I feel that a dual purpose can be achieved; we can honor and celebrate life’s most important events while helping others rise above their difficulties thus creating their own story worth sharing. I invite you to review my wedding galleries and portrait portfolios now; within them you will find my heart and soul.
AREAS OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Wedding photos are the most important photographic investment you will ever make. Your wedding is the beginning of something amazing. While loved ones gather, tears of joy will be shed, and you will join yourself to the one person that you can’t live without. Weddings are filled with beautiful emotions and the powerful relationships that define us. These memories deserve to be honored in a creative and timeless way. That’s where I come in. My goal is to see what is deep in your heart and pull it into focus. I want you to be able to see your wedding photos and remember all of the good over and over. Choosing IJ Photo means quality artwork, sincere customer service, and exceeded expectations all along the way.
More than just a tradition; engagement photos are fun, relaxing, and personalized. It’s an opportunity for you and your fiancé to introduce yourselves as a couple to the world, while getting to know your photographer! Together we create portraits that you’ll want to hang on your wall, send to friends and family, and even use as part of your wedding décor. Most wedding photography packages include an engagement session. It’s just one more way IJ Photo adds value to your Seattle wedding photos!
WHY CHOOSE IJ PHOTO?
I love photography. It’s what I do. I especially love doing engagement and wedding photography in the Seattle area.
A personalized consultation is the first step to booking your wedding or portrait session. These meetings are fun as well as informational. You’ll learn everything about how our session will go, how you will order, and how much it will cost. You’ll also help me plan your session so we can get exactly the photos you want in the most creative and efficient way. Understanding who you are and your needs is vital to my process. I value you as an individual and want to understand exactly how to meet and exceed your expectations.
Seattle is a wonderful place to live and work. My studio is in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle and my home is in Lake Stevens, WA. While many of my sessions happen in my studio, I enjoy opening up my home to clients for our ordering appointments. In this comfortable environment we work together to design your custom album, choose wall art that fit your home, and much more. Additionally, I travel worldwide for wedding photography and would love to go with you to any destination you can imagine. Destination weddings are wonderful because you leave all of the stress of planning and hosting at the location. It’s a great idea to choose a local vendor for your destination wedding because a majority of the work actually gets done before and after the big day. My clients who I have traveled with loved the convenience of having me so close to help them put their album together, and photograph their engagement session. Plus travel is no additional cost for most locations!
I have been photographing professionally for 15+ years. In my time I have worked with thousands of families, and attended over 300 weddings. My engagement and wedding photographs are routinely published in magazines and wedding style blogs, but the thing I am most proud of is the opportunity to give back. IJ Photo gives a percentage of our earnings each year to charitable organizations. I believe that we find true love when we open our hearts to others. So it was natural for me to see the link between photography and philanthropy. I hope that you will too.
