Choosing the right wedding photographer is one of the most important aspects of planning your wedding, and we believe wholeheartedly in finding the perfect match. We specialize in photographing intimate elopements and small weddings with fewer than 100 guests.

We'll work with you in your chosen outdoor location in the Pacific Northwest to create beautiful photos to use for wedding announcements and keepsake portraits.

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 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.
Shawn Smith loves the technical aspects of photography as well as capturing those priceless storytelling moments. He has an incredible eye for detail. 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.
