Welcome, sweet bride-to-be! We are Stormy and Michael, a husband and wife photo and video 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 radiant, 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!
A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES
GET TO KNOW US
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 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!
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 that includes the contract & retainer to official book your wedding date! Once your date is officially reserved, you'll receive a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day, including stress-free timelines with and without a first look for the dreamiest photos.
Before your engagement session, you'll receive my style guide to help you and your fiancé prepare for our time together and my list of signature locations. 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!
About a month or two before your wedding, we'll start working together to gather the final details of your big day such as timeline specifics, any special details of your day, family formal shot lists, and special traditions, to name a few. We'll also schedule a quick call a week or so before your wedding to give some final tips for your wedding day to make it as stress-free as possible!
YAY, it's here! You can relax and enjoy the day you've spent all of this time planning and let us 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!
We know how exciting is it to get your wedding photos and video back as soon as possible! Your full gallery and video will be delivered within 30 days with previews along the way. Afterwards, we'll begin designing your wedding album together!

I can't imagine having anyone else except Stormy and Michael take our photos. They make you feel comfortable, make you laugh, and take genuine, high quality photos. Every time I show someone our photos we get nothing but rave reviews...We lucked out in finding this wonderful duo!
Gina + Dana
Stormy and Michael exude friendliness, warmth, joy, and they bring that care and passion to the shoot as well as to the final photos. Their work has always exceeded our wildest expectations. Family and friends say that our photos are some of the best they have ever seen and I could not agree more.
Amanda + Kyle
As someone who will be capturing our big day, I loved how invested she is in "us" from day 1... Our photos were beautiful and we have received so many compliments from friends and family. She has a way of making them look natural and timeless.
