first Washington summit
Found this peak on a 2-night at Peggy's Pond below it. After a freak snowstorm turned back a mid-August summit attempt, we headed back for another (much warmer) attempt the next week.
This hike turns from a sidewalk into a brutal uphill and crescendos in several quasi-scrambles before it opens into one of the most majestic cirques in Washington state.read the post »

I have been photographing weddings 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 husband and son.
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 next adventure.
I am an adventure photographer at heart, and my passion for photography continues to develop as my family and I spend time in rugged and beautiful places. Click a spot on the map to see photos I’ve taken of this amazing and wild world.
