"Ren has a warm and welcoming personality and is fun to work with! She is an expert in capturing candid moments (and those are the best ones). Fiance and I had our 1st photoshoot together and it didn't feel awkward at all! Ren goes through the effort and extra time to get to know the couple she'll be working with before doing the actual shoot.
We loved working with Ren because every communication reminded us that she cared and listened to what we wanted to convey in our photos. She has only shown us the sneak peaks for now and oh my we are in love them! Can't wait to see the final photos! Thank you Ren!"

We worked with Ren for our small courthouse ceremony on Whidbey island and I was seriously blown away. She is so thoughtful, caring and TALENTED. She was very fun to work with and really wants to make sure everyone gets what they want out of the experience... but also give guidance! My husband and I both hate staged photos and were not super into the idea of professional cheesy romance photos but these are SO ROMANTIC and just pure style. Ren's style is classy and classic but also hip. We loved every moment working with Ren even though it was pouring down rain like seriously such a huge rain storm.. Ren is a trooper for sure she did not complain at all about having to work in the rain and was so kind working with us as we froze our tushies off. We loved working with her so much we hired her AGAIN like 3 days later to take pictures for us at our wedding reception. Hire her for seriously any photographer needs just do it she is the absolute best and you will not regret it!"

"Ren does a fantastic job with the whole elopement process. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer - she absolutely exceeded my expectations. You can tell she loves what she does."

- Aria + Mikey

here for the breathless kisses, the hugs that are tight, the sudden giggles

at the end of the day, MOST any photographer can deliver good photos, but i want to give more than that - i want to hold space for you two to show up COMPLETELY yourselves with your hearts wide open.

before i get to know you two, here's a little bit about me + i am OBSESSED with lemon water + my favorite moment of every day is waking up to my love in our mountain home + you will always find me wearing some sort of dress or skirt or a cozy sweater + i was studying to become a forensic psychologist before i discovered photography + i have 6 tattoos and counting + my nights are spent cuddling my voluptuous + fluffy cat named Leo, more commonly known and referred to as Muffin + lush, deep colors make my heart skip a beat + i love traveling, especially for my couples so while the pacific northwest is where i call home, i'm more than willing to travel anywhere and everywhere
