I’m Destiny.

I’m an elopement and intimate wedding photographer who brings out the art in your wedding day.

I love easy-going nature, wildflowers, movement, and passion. It’s so important to me to get to know every couple personally because I believe that human connection is the magic sauce to get photos you’ll love for a lifetime. I don’t strive for perfect. I want you to feel comfortable, not posed or like you’re performing. Those giggles, little touches, and booty grabs are what your relationship is and I believe your photographer should make you feel supported enough that you can share them.

And it isn’t about how comfortable you are in front of the camera or your reason why you chose to say f*ck timeless and hell yes to the real, raw, and messy. It’s about the two of you. The actual, real-life, human bits that made you fall in love in the first place. I’m just the insanely lucky person who gets to witness it and capture your memories for now & for later.

I always want to enable my couples to see how truly worthy they are right now and create a space where you’ll feel protected, confident, and free. Free to be you and love it.

About me: 

I’ve got bad jokes and sarcasm, an endless stream of book recommendations, a fiery passion for good vegan food, and living authentically. I love you for who you are and will do everything in my power to make sure you’re wedding day is what you’ve always wanted.

My husband and I moved to the PNW last year just because we wanted to. The nature here is unbeatable and we go hiking and visit the coast as often as we can.

You can totally do this and I’m here to help you every step of the way.

When you hire me you’ll get:

  • vendor recommendations
  • customized location lists
  • unlimited consultations
  • personal insight to the best recommendations for your day
  • an officiant (if you need one!)
  • no travel fees
  • permit assistance & so much more!

Contact me and let’s get this party started!

These images are absolutely stunning and we started crying together going through them. The emotion drips from each moment. Everything was so perfect and I can't believe this is only a sliver. Thank you for getting them to us so quickly!! I'm obsessed with you and your work and I'm so glad we found each other.

The opportunity to create with Destiny is an absolutely wonderful experience; one that I would gladly repeat again and again. She is a joy to be around and her passion for her craft truly shows as she will squat low, climb high, and lay down on the pavement to get just the perfect angle for a shot! We felt comfortable right away as Destiny encouraged us to "get weird" and I really enjoyed the way she guided us through moments together instead of putting us in cookie-cutter poses. The results were completely stunning and I couldn't be more thrilled with the images! If you are looking for a photographer that will make you feel like royalty on your big day and every time you look back on your photos then look no further and book her now!!!

When I say Destiny went above and beyond for this moment it’s an understatement. She took a whole day to help my now fiancé plan a special surprise proposal for me. Destiny knew the vision without us having to say too much. Destiny created some of the most brilliant photos. Our awkwardness did not come through in the photos she captured each of our moments with love in our eyes. I will treasure these photos and we are so lucky to be able to relive this memory forever.

I don’t know where to begin. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. I’d been frustrated on my search for a photographer since my husband and I are both quiet, introverted people who love rain and darkness. We didn’t want forced photos in a cornfield or by a windmill. Destiny was everything we wanted. Her communication beforehand was excellent, and she helped me block out realistic times for things like family photos, newlywed pictures, and even my getting-ready times. (Her experience with wedding planning shone through exceptionally.) On the wedding day, she was the perfect presence. She made sure I got the specific photos I wanted, she found every single piece of my laborious DIY work and captured it in perfection. She made sure she knew what kind of photos I wanted (candid and friend-oriented more than posed and family-based). She captured every moment, from the heartiest laughs to the most painful grimaces. I couldn’t say enough good about her, just know she’s the photographer you’re looking for.

My experience with Destiny for my engagement session was filled with so much fun and excitement. Within our time together she captured our love poetically, sealing them into timeless photos. During our session, we felt so natural around her and had full confidence in how amazing our photos were going to turn out. The way she directed us was so easy and clear, it felt effortless for her to find the shot. She always knew exactly what she was doing and naturally caught the exact vision we’ve been dreaming about. Since day one of reaching out to her, she’s always been super responsive and professional with everything. I’m honored to have Destiny as my photographer and can’t wait to see the magic she’ll do when I tie the knot. I highly HIGHLY recommend Destiny to anyone who is looking for an amazing professional photographer. She will make your dreams come true, so book with her asap!

Sabrina & Michael

I was INSANELY surprised by our shoot with Destiny! My wife and I knew she was talented just by looking at her portfolio, but I feel she gave us so much more than just beautiful photos! We felt so comfortable with her and honestly, didn't think we could, comfortably, have such an intimate experience in front of a camera! That sounds crazy! And it is, because you can see it captured in every single photo! My wife and I are so very thankful to have had such beautiful photos taken!

Brianna & Jen

Destiny is the best! She made my partner and I feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. She was so sweet and she made the moment feel magical. You can really tell that she isn’t just about getting paid, she cares so much about the experience and it shows through.
