You crave a unique wedding experience in a beautiful location that sets your soul on freaking fire
You want a laid-back, fun and uplifting space where you two can celebrate your love freely
You’re not the type to settle for ordinary, you care about beauty in every single tiny piece of the experience
You’re dying to include your dogs, guitars, art projects and other quirky personal stuff in your big day
Here's the deal: I want you to have timeless photos that transport you back to #allthefeels on your wedding day, but my REAL goal is to be your homie along the way. Your secret weapon. The Yoda to your Luke Skywalker, and the Gandalf to your Frodo.
I have a huge heart for couples who march (down the aisle) to the beat of their own drum. So here’s to creating a meaningful wedding day that matches the high-vibe relationship you two have!
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.
"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."
"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."
"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!"
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.

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 had the most amazing experience with Emett for our wedding day! From the day we met him to talk about our upcoming wedding we knew it was going to be a great match. He listened to our story and all of our wishes for the day and I could tell he was excited too! Everything went so well the day of. He showed up early to scout out the venue, talked more with us about the details and even came early to the hotel to get some getting ready footage. Everything went so perfectly, he was so professional and passionate about his work and you can tell in the photos! I'm so happy we chose Emett to shoot one of the most important days of our lives, he captured all of the amazing moments and all the love and happiness we felt that day, I'll always be able to look at these photos and remember it all! Thanks Emett!!"
