Mountain Highway Sunrise B&W

Seattle and Tacoma Area Photographers


Back in 1998, Shawn and Sarah Smith got hitched and decided to take the road less traveled, together. After four states, two countries and nearly twenty years of nomadic life, we've grown to a family of four and settled our home near the shores of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA.  Here we find great inspiration in the natural surroundings of the Pacific Northwest.

We are foodies, music-lovers, coffee-obsessed (black coffee, if you please). We still travel as often as possible and take our cameras with us wherever we go.

Sarah B. Smith, Tacoma Photographer



Sarah Smith is the lead photographer. She is passionate about photography as both art form and documentary process. Sarah has the unique ability to quietly and unobtrusively capture the most intimate moments. She loves utilizing dramatic natural environments in her photographic storytelling whenever possible. She's always been wildly creative, and also works as a visual artist, incorporating photography, handmade costume pieces and props in her work. Visit her artist page to see more.

In addition to being Sarah's right hand man and second shooter at weddings, Shawn collects old cameras and loves shooting film. He also loves super hoppy IPAs and is a certifiable board game geek.
