Your greatest adventure is about to begin



A hell YEAH,

Hey, I’m Emett, your Seattle, Washington wedding and elopement photographer and hype man. Since I'm not going to waste your time with my favorite coffee or any of that crap, I thought I’d drop the #1 truth bomb that resonates with my couples: Life’s too short to hold ourselves back from the stuff that makes us feel truly alive. That makes choosing to do only your favorite things on your wedding day pretty dang important if you ask me.

Whether you’re looking for an elopement off the beaten path or a wedding that feels true to you as a couple — I’m here to help you have the best day of your life, while telling your story through powerful imagery. So you can look back on the day you got married the way you’re supposed to: like it was the most epic experience ever.



Maybe you started planning your wedding and it made you want to pull your hair out. Maybe this is your first rodeo, maybe it's not, but at the end of the day, a traditional wedding just doesn't sit right with how you and your partner actually want to spend your special day together.

So shake off the expectations and just do you! From picking a stunning location you love to taking the stress out of constructing a timeline for your day, I'm here to help all the magic of your elopement day come to life.




I get it: you want to celebrate the best day of your life with your family and closest friends AND you want to stick to what feels right to you two. No worries, I’m here to tell you you can have your wedding cake and eat it too!

Imagine a day that includes your loved ones while keeping the experience totally and uniquely yours, allowing you to soak up every intimate moment with your love. Whatever your dream wedding looks like, I’m here to make sure you feel supported, encouraged and inspired every step of the way. We got this.

High vibe weddings


Melissa & James - Washington State Wedding

"Working with Emett is more then working with a photographer, it’s like working with your friend who is there to help you every step of the way. He really goes above and beyond to make everything perfect and seamless. Every time we talked to Emett about our plans, we were left excited, encouraged and productive. He has such a creative eye and makes every moment he captures beautiful. When we got our engagment and wedding photos back, my face literally hurt from smiling and going through them over and over."

"Working with Emett is literally a dream... I could not ever in a million years ask for a better wedding photographer."

Reyna & Froy - Seattle Elopement

"I would 1000% recommend Emett. He is not only a phenomenal photographer, but a genuinely kind person. From the first point of contact we knew he was the right fit for us by how personable he was. He is so down-to-earth, professional, helpful and makes the whole experience fun and exciting. He's up for any adventure and the sky is the limit when it comes to his skills.  Our wedding day was filled with so much joy and laughter. I had only dreamed that our photos would reflect these moments. He captured the day beautifully and we will cherish our wonderful photos for a lifetime. If you're looking for an amazing photographer, he is your guy."

"The attentiveness he pays to every detail is impressive and he puts his whole heart and effort into his art." 

Lindsay & Will - Coast elopement

"From the very start of our communications, to the event itself, and everything that followed, Emett has been so incredibly wonderful to work with! He made planning the day so incredibly easy... When the day finally came for our elopement, We were laughing and having the best time! He made us feel so relaxed and when it was time for us to say our vows, we basically forgot he was there, but he captured our emotions and everything so perfectly!"

"Emett was incredibly fun to work with and made the day go so smoothly!"


Whether you choose a luxurious wedding in the heart of a vineyard, or an adventure elopement deep in the rainforest, I vow to give you the very best of my craft. Every single moment of our journey together is custom created for you two, and documented to bring out the best in your love story.

How I became a Wedding & elopement Photographer

Growing up outside of Seattle, Washington - it was really easy to fall in love with the pacific northwest. My first job was on a kayak dock on the Puget Sound (the body of water that Seattle sits on) with a view of the Olympic mountains. Every summer evening when the sun would set across the water, I'd catch myself day dreaming about what it would be like to be in the mountains.

Fast forward to my early twenties, I got a camera so I could spend my time creating something artistic and positive. My first trip was to the Columbia River Gorge outside of Portland, and I immediately fell in love with how fun it was to capture all the beautiful scenery and moments with my friends.

A few months later, a coworker asked me to photograph their brother's wedding. When I realized I could make a career out of capturing something so meaningful, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for a living!

Photography continues to take me to beautiful places like the national parks in Washington state, including the Olympics, North Cascades, and Mount Rainier. I'm forever grateful that I get to do something so meaningful for a living, and it wouldn't be possible without people like you!

There's nothing I love more than helping couples create beautiful memories in beautiful places.

"We first spoke with Emett over the phone after we inquired on his website about our Washington state elopement. Within a few minutes of talking with him, I think my husband and I both had a strong feeling he was going to be our photographer. He was so easy to talk to, and it seriously felt like he was one of our friends within the first 10 minutes of chatting. Having a photographer who was kind, laid back, and fun was super important to us- Emett fit that perfectly!

When it came to the planning process, he was so helpful!! We were coming to Washington from Maryland to get married, so we really didn’t have a ton of insight on locations or vendors in the WA area. Emett helped us pick out our ceremony spot, as well as some amazing places to take incredible photos at sunset. Plus gave us plenty of back-up options just incase we needed them. He also provided a list of vendors to help us narrow our searching. If I had any questions along the way he was super quick to answer them, and his communication was awesome!

On our actual elopement day, Emett killed it. He was professional, but also super personable and fun. Since he had been so involved in the planning process, once we met in person it felt like we were already good friends! Throughout the day he posed us and guided us through photos. He brought a super encouraging positive attitude that made Ryan and I feel even more comfortable.

THE DAY AFTER our elopement, Emett already had sneak peeks for us! And ya’ll they are amaaaazing. We couldn’t be happier with the sneak peeks we’ve received so far. All our family and friends can’t get over how beautiful they are either.

Emett’s photography obviously speaks for itself (it’s stunning duh), but his kind personality, creativity, and awesome customer service really made our experience amazing. We had the most incredible stress free wedding day, and Emett played a large role in making that happen.

If you want breathtaking photos, and a beyond amazing experience- Emett is your guy!"
