all the little details about our philosophy, our process, and what it means to be a #StormyBride

Welcome, sweet bride-to-be! We are Stormy and Michael, a husband and wife photography team in Bellevue, Washington, serving the Greater Seattle Area, the Pacific Northwest, and wherever love stories take us. 

We create bright, colorful, and timeless images for the joyful, sentimental bride who dreams of a romantic wedding day filled with radiating love and laughter followed by a night of party dancing and memories as sweet as the wedding cake! We call these brides our #StormyBrides and we're so glad you're here!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Stormy and her husband, Michael! When you hire Stormy, you're getting more than just a photographer and more than just an artist. Her entire business philosophy is based on serving her clients to the fullest, and you can tell right away that she means it. Once you become her client she integrates you into her Stormy Bride Community (a closed Facebook group) where you can share info with other brides. I love that in creating this community Stormy's personal mission of adding value to every relationship is shared amongst her other clients... She really really listens from the heart, is very compassionate, and genuinely wants you to just enjoy your wedding day without worrying about a thing. At the end of it all you get the dreamiest wedding photos you could imagine and you also gain a friend!

Anne & Mikey

My fiancé and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Stormy and the beautiful work she creates!  We feel so lucky to have found her and her husband as a wedding photography team. We found their website (which has everything you need to know!), and initially reached out with an inquiry. We immediately received an informative response inviting us to have to have a face to face meeting (FaceTime call in our case, as we live out of the area). That phone call was awesome - as Stormy seemed genuinely interested in learning so much about us as a couple, while sharing in detail her style of work and her process... Stormy directs poses seamlessly and naturally, captures candids, all while staying so positive and making you feel 100% comfortable. And the natural light she captured is truly stunning! After researching photographers for what seemed like forever, I KNOW we picked the right ones and am so happy to be a #stormybride!

Kelsie & Dylan

Stormy's not only an amazing person but an amazing photographer. Her photos are so beautiful & she always gets your photos to you ASAP. She is so easy to work with & guides you through the whole shoot to ensure the shoot goes as smoothly as possible. She’s literally the nicest person I have ever met! Stormy & her husband make an awesome team! They are always working together make things as easy as possible! My husband & I are in love with our photos from our wedding & our engagement shoot! We would recommend her to literally anyone. She’s the best hands down.

Jessica & Ben

Where do I even begin with this girl!? Well for starters, and the complete obvious, she is so gifted and talented! She makes you feel so comfortable not only in front of the lens (which let me tell you, I am NOT and neither is my fiance), but also in making sure you are getting what you want out of the pictures and bringing your vision to life. She guides you through every motion, every glance, every smile. Stormy was SO incredibly helpful with helping me pick outfit colors and ideas and scoring the perfect location (If only you could see the back and forth of our text thread and my indecisiveness!). From our first meeting in a coffee shop to the engagement session and everything in between, I'm so glad I found Stormy and CANNOT wait for her to capture our wedding day in the exact same beauty and grace as our engagement pictures. If you need pictures, BOOK THIS GIRL!!!

Stormy Bride


We believe that your wedding photography is more than just hiring someone to take pretty pictures on your wedding day; a Stormy Bride wants joyful and genuine photos of herself and her groom-to-be along with all the pretty little details of her big day documented. She needs an unforgettable EXPERIENCE out of her wedding photography! This all starts with getting to know each other :) So, let me treat you to a hot cup of coffee or tea to talk about your love story and all of the great ideas you have for your wedding and see if we are the perfect fit! 

Step One:

Let's Be Friends!

Yay!! You've decided you want to be a Stormy Bride, so let's reserve your wedding date! We'll send over an online, custom booking proposal where you can review your package and pay the retainer to make everything official!
Now that you're officially a Stormy Bride + Groom, I'll invite you into my exclusive Facebook group for brides where you can connect with other awesome Stormy Brides for advice, recommendations, or just to chat. We also welcome you to proudly use our hashtag #stormybride to stay connected with everyone!

Step Two:

Save Your Date

Now for the fun part! Your engagement session is the perfect time to capture the wonderful emotions of being engaged while practicing for your big day! I'll send over my engagement session style guide to help you and your fiancé prepare for our time together. We specialize in making our couples feel comfortable and guide you through the most flattering poses to get those genuine smiles! Even if you don't consider yourself to be "photogenic" or your fiancé hates having photos taken, you can trust me when I say that you'll be rocking your session in no time!

Step Three:

Engagement Session

Let me help your wedding day go smoothly by creating the best timeline to ensure that you don't miss out on the wedding photos you've been dreaming about! I'll start by sending over timelines with and without a first look so we're making the most out of dreamy light and to give an idea of how long photos typically take for each part of your day. About a month or two before your wedding, we'll revisit and perfect your timeline :) You don't have to miss out on all of the cocktail hour schmoozing with my timelines! ...

Step Four:

Timeline Planning

Bridal sessions are portraits done before a wedding of just the bride with a smaller version of her bridal bouquet and hair & makeup done. It's also an opportunity for couples to do a first look and portraits, so they can enjoy more of their actual wedding day together. Most brides/couples opt for an epic location that is different from their wedding venue for their bridal session. We'll schedule your bridal session (or bridal boudoir session) about 4-5 weeks before your wedding day so there's plenty of time to order prints to be displayed at your wedding reception or for your boudoir album to be ready to give your hubby on your wedding day. 

Step Five:

Bridal & Boudoir sessions

About a week or so before the wedding, we will hop on a quick phone call to go over any final details and changes you may have to the timeline or anything else! I'll also gives some final tips for your wedding day to make it as stress-free as possible!

All the Little Details

Step Six:

YAY, it's here! You can relax and enjoy the day you've spent all of this time planning and let me capture the love that is radiating everywhere! Wedding days go by so quickly and can feel like a blur afterwards. We always prioritize getting the traditional photos that every bride needs while also capturing the candid and fun moments in between! After your wedding day, you'll be featured on the SP Blog before your final gallery is delivered within 30 days.

Your Wedding Day!!!

Step Seven:

After your finally gallery is delivered within 30 days, we'll begin designing your wedding album together. After 2-3 rounds of revisions, we'll have the perfect design ready to be shipped off to my professional printing lab. Easy peasy!
