Wedding Photography


I specialize in photographing weddings in the San Juan Islands - on yachts drifting in the Strait, at the Orcas Hotel, in the gardens at Roche Harbor, in the meadow at Lakedale, at South Beach or just about anywhere else in the Islands. I've been photographing in the San Juans for over 20 years, and can incorporate the beauty of the islands into your images. As a seasoned destination wedding photographer, I also photograph weddings in other locations in the Pacific Northwest in summer and the tropics in winter.


As your photographer, I have two goals: first, to create the best possible images that you, your families and friends can enjoy for a lifetime – images that reflect the love of two people and creatively capture the start of a new chapter in their lives; and second, to provide the best service, the least stress and the most fun on your day.


 My style of photography is a combination of fine art and photojournalism. I love to shoot images that express the relationships between people as well as artfully tell the story of your wedding. I also use the digital darkroom to enhance the art created in the camera, and then hand-craft prints, video shows and fine-art albums that fit your style. Wedding photography starts at $1295.  Full wedding coverage with an album starts at $3295. Let's discuss your wedding in more detail so I can provide you with a complete cost estimate.

"I just received my album.  It is absolutely beautiful!  It could not be more perfect!  Thank you so much for all the time you spent helping me make important decisions about my ceremony, taking my photos, and creating my beautiful album.  Words can't express how much I appreciate all of your advice and hard work!"  - Tiffany & Phill, New Orleans


"The photos are awesome...  I am so glad that we put our wedding photos in your hands, you are very talented :)" - Tanya & Chris, Dallas
