Meet your Olympic National Park Elopement Photographer

washington elopement photographerHi, I am Amy.
I am a Washington elopement photographer in Port Angeles. I have been photographing weddings and elopements in the Pacific Northwest and Jackson Hole since 2010. An adventurous soul through-and-through, you can frequently find me chasing powder on my snowboard, trekking deep into the mountains with a backpack full of camping gear, or paddling out into the surf of the rugged Washington coast with my little family.
I’m lucky that photography has given me the opportunity to witness one of life’s greatest adventures with so many couples. Through the lens I’ve shared tears of joy, moments of glee, and incredible heartfelt connections. It would be my greatest honor to tell your story and embark with you on your Olympic National Park elopement in Washington.
