Washington Elopement Photographer

Washington is one of the most geographically diverse states in the country, with mountains, deserts, rainforests, rocky coastlines, waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers, and more. As an elopement photographer based here in Washington, I can tell you that it's the perfect spot for an adventure elopement– no matter what kind of adventure you're looking for!

Meet your Washington elopement photographer

Hi, I'm Marla, and I'm so glad that you're here considering a true-to-you wedding day here in the Pacific Northwest!

I'm a photographer for the couples who want a wedding day that feels like the real them; the couples that want gorgeous, timeless pictures to tell the whole story of their big day. Those who value fun and adventure, and are looking for a memorable, meaningful experience.

I'm here to guide you through this whole process– from choosing the perfect location to say your vows, securing permits, and crafting a timeline, all the way to that celebratory hug after you've leveled up from fiancé(e) to spouse.
