more about whitney

WHEN I FIRST STARTED CALLING MYSELF A PHOTOGRAPHER, I THOUGHT THAT I WANTED TO DO IT ALL (FAMILIES, BABIES, COMMERCIAL...) BUT WEDDINGS AND DOCUMENTING LOVE STORIES AS THEY UNFOLD IS WHERE MY HEART IS HAPPIEST.

 

2020 IS MY SEVENTH YEAR AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER AND I LOVE IT MORE WITH EVERY WEDDING THAT I'M PART OF.

 

I'M A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR COUPLES THAT VALUE FAMILY, TRADITION, TRAVEL AND ART. FOR COUPLES WHO WANT THEIR WEDDING PICTURES TO STAND THE TEST OF TIME AND TO BE LOVED AND SHARED FOR THE NEXT 20, 30, 40+ YEARS OVER AND OVER AGAIN WITH THEIR LOVED ONES.

MY FAVORITE PART OF MY JOB IS THE CONNECTION AND FRIENDSHIP THAT I BUILD WITH EACH OF MY COUPLES. THE MORE COMFORTABLE WE ARE WITH EACH OTHER, THE EASIER IT IS TO CREATE THOSE BEAUTIFUL IMAGES YOU'VE BEEN DREAMING ABOUT.

 

THE VERY BEST COMPLIMENT I CAN RECEIVE FROM MY COUPLES IS THAT I AM THEIR "FOREVER PHOTOGRAPHER", AND AM ASKED AGAIN TO DOCUMENT THEIR NEXT MAJOR MILESTONES THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, AND AS THEIR FAMILIES GROW.

TRAVEL HAS BEEN PART OF MY LIFE FROM A YOUNG AGE. FAVORITE PLACES TO VISIT ARE PARIS, HAWAII, MEXICO, AND THE OREGON COAST. AT THE TOP OF MY WANT TO VISIT: AUSTRALIA, SCOTLAND (AND ALL OF THE BRITISH ISLES), NEW ZEALAND AND ITALY.

 

AS THE MOM OF TWO YOUNG GIRLS, MY LIFE IS RULED BY ALL THINGS DISNEY. I AM A FIRM BELIEVER THAT DISNEYLAND REALLY CAN BE THE HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH AND THAT TREATS TASTE BETTER WHEN MICKEY-SHAPED.

SPECIAL TALENTS THAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ME YET: I SPEAK FLUENT IN MOVIE QUOTES, HAVE BEEN A WEDDING SINGER, I DO A LOT OF ANIMATED TALKING WITH MY HANDS AND AS A TRUE NERD AT HEART, I RE-READ MY FAVORITE BOOKS OVER AND OVER (AND SEE NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOING THAT AND WATCHING FAVORITE MOVIES MULTIPLE TIMES).

"Whitney seriously made our wedding amazing! Our favorite part of working with her was how comfortable she made us feel posing and taking pictures during our engagements, bridals and the wedding day!

She made us laugh and smile, which made us look natural in our pictures. She is totally flexible and so fun to be around, you won’t want your sessions to end! On the wedding day she was great at getting people where they needed to be in pictures and helped so much with the fluidity of the reception. We loved working with Whitney!"

“WHITNEY WAS AMAZING THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE WEDDING PROCESS, AND THE PICTURES WE RECEIVED WERE BEAUTIFUL AND DOCUMENTED THE DAY PERFECTLY. WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR ALL OF THE PREPARATION SHE DID PRIOR TO THE WEDDING TO MAKE SURE SHE WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY WHAT AND WHO TO CAPTURE IN THE PHOTOS THAT WERE MOST IMPORTANT TO US. SHE HAS AN EYE FOR CAPTURING THE PERFECT MOMENT.

WE ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND HER TO ALL WE KNOW GETTING MARRIED. THE QUALITY OF PHOTOS WE RECEIVED WAS DEFINITELY WORTH IT. IF WE HAD TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, NO DOUBT IN MY MIND WE WOULD CHOOSE WHITNEY.”

"My husband and I were so impressed with how she treated us during engagements, bridals and our wedding day; she never made us feel like she was rushing for time. She also did small things on our wedding day that weren't photography related but just shows how great of a person she is. It's the little things that let you know she cares.

Overall, I suggest Whitney to every bride I meet. She is the best of the best and we plan on using her for all our photos in life!"

"Whitney is seriously SUCH a joy to work with!  I can’t say enough great things.  For one, her sense of humor makes being on the other side of the camera both easy and fun!  I have to be honest, at first I was worried that our first visit for engagement pictures may be a little awkward seeing as my husband and I are not used to being in front of the camera like that, much less with someone we had never met...but it totally wasn’t AT ALL!  Whitney had us both laughing and having a good time right away!

On the day of the wedding she was so much more than just our photographer. She made sure everything went smoothly and as planned from making sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time to even getting me a glass of champagne before toasts so my hands weren’t empty. Her photographs are beyond beautiful! If I got to do it all over, I would choose Whitney again in a heartbeat!"

“We loved working with Whitney! She always responded promptly with any of our questions. Our family loved her because on our wedding day she took family pictures so efficiently.

She came knowing exactly what shots we wanted and got them done. We loved her because we felt like we were hanging out with a friend at all of our sessions. We’re obsessed with our photos and would (and do) recommend her to anyone.”
