I’m Tori, an elopement and wedding photographer based in Seattle, WA where rainy days inspired my passion for the intimate. I live for photography that evokes a deep emotional connection, creating little time capsules of not just your physical being, but for all the fleeting moments that make your connection special.
I describe my work as Artful + Honest. It’s about seeing people as they are, noticing the little things that make them unique, and then making sure my technical skills are just as sharp as my creative eye. When my clients are vulnerable and let me into their story, that’s when I can do my best work, capturing candid moments into more than a memory. While you feel the feels, I’ll get creative with angles, posing, and editing to capture the honest emotions of your big day, giving them back to you with a creative twist. By the end of our time together, I hope to leave you with an album that reflects the day just as you remember it, romance and all.
When the camera gets tucked away, you can find me at a local coffee shop dreaming up my next project, walking our two dogs through the foggy streets of Tacoma with my husband Herman, or cruising around town on our vespas. As an artist and storyteller myself, connecting with my clients goes far beyond business—sitting on the edge of my seat as you retell your love story, seeing your eyes light up when a pose worked out perfectly (and laughing when it doesn’t), watching their face slowly change as you walk down the aisle…those are the moments that fuel me long after our contract ends, and I would be honored to capture your story together.
"3,500 letters is truly not enough to capture just how amazing Tori is as not only a photographer but also as a person. Tori went above and beyond to make my husband and I feel so special, comfortable, and have the time of our lives taking pictures. Taking pictures and spending time with Tori was truly one of our favorite parts of the entire wedding experience! We are both not the most comfortable in front of the camera but looking at the pictures and even on the day, you would seriously never know it. She directed us when necessary but also made us feel so comfortable that it was easy to just be ourselves! Tori also took the time to really get to know us and that definitely showed in our pictures and the settings she chose for us to take pictures at. Although we do not have all the pictures back yet (it's only been a week), the very generous amount that she sent for our sneak peeks have been absolutely stunning and I can't wait for the rest of them and to work with Tori more in the future! I am SO incredibly grateful for Tori! A big shoutout to her husband Herman who was just as amazing as she was on the day of the wedding!"
