I am a born & raised Washington State photographer! A native of the North Olympic Peninsula, Adrien spent her formative years adventuring and exploring throughout Western Washington, particularly in the wilds of Olympic National Park and Olympic National Forest. She is continually humbled and deeply grateful to call herself a Washington State wedding photographer, and plans to continue to be so for decades to come!
As a resident of Seattle for over ten years, Adrien is deeply in love with the Emerald City and the entirety of Puget Sound. From the charming and historic neighborhoods of Seattle to the rugged and wild Olympic, Rainier, and North Cascade National Parks, to the arid pine forests and meadows of the Methow Valley, Columbia Gorge, and Eastern Washington, Adrien is familiar with everything that Washington State has to offer. Whether you want an adventurous hiking elopement on a remote coastal beach or an elegant and urban wedding in an industrial city venue, Adrien can create gorgeous, luminous imagery in any environment.
Adrien is primarily a natural light wedding photographer, forever in love with the Pacific Northwest from the towering coniferous forests to the moody, rugged coastline. She aims to bring the lush natural beauty of the outdoors into her work, finding ways to incorporate botanicals and foliage even in urban and indoor spaces.
By leveraging the best lighting available on a given wedding day, whether that’s an ideal evening sunset and golden hour to the pearlescent overcast light of a rainy day, Adrien’s photography is most commonly recognized as bright, joyful, and full of emotion and movement. As a Washington State native, Adrien is more than familiar with the inconstancy of our regional weather. She knows how to watch the forecast and make the best of any lighting situation at a moment’s notice, even when the weather changes from clear and sunny to torrential downpour at the last minute. Adrien is an expert at finding ways to take advantage of natural light in any weather scenario while keeping couples, their bridal party, and family and friends as comfortable and dry as possible. And when natural light is not an option, such as an indoor ceremony or after-dark reception, she’ll use ambient light, candlelight, and professional lighting equipment to provide gorgeous illumination in her images.
Adrien aims for a classic, timeless style in her editing, favoring color and high contrast to create emotional imagery that will bring evoke the feeling of your wedding day again and again.
Her passion for creating an honest, timeless account of a couple’s wedding day every time has helped Adrien to thrive in the wedding industry. From the details of the couple’s outfits to the decor they choose to represent their values and style to the emotion-filled vows and just-married moments, Adrien focuses on documenting every element of a couple’s wedding day in order to create the first heirloom of their married life, so they’re able to relive and remember every minute of the day they said their “I Do’s.”
