As a mama of two little munchkins, I all well know the struggle we face as we scroll through our phone's photo albums... Tons of photos of the kids. (Probably a handful of screenshots or a choice meme or two, too.) Tons of photos of grandparents with the kiddos. Even a ton of photos of your partner with the kids or photos of friends. Maybe the occasional selfie. I'm here to tell you - your children, your spouse, your family - they also want to have photos of you. 

Let me help make sure you're in those precious photos, too.

MAKE SURE YOU'RE IN PHOTOS, TOO.

Some of my favorite memories growing up include thumbing through old family photo albums - seeing my grandparent's weddings, my parent's wedding, photos of my brothers and I as babies... Tangible reminders of important family milestones from years past. 

My goal as a photographer is to make things simple. Photography is more than just images, it's one of the few tangible treasures documenting family milestones that our Earthly bodies leave behind for future generations.

One way I ensure that my clients have the best experience working with me is developing a strong relationship. When we meet for a portrait session, wedding, boudoir session, or event - I want it to feel like you are catching up with an old friend. The more comfortable you are with me, the more relaxed and authentic you'll be in front of my camera. Candid photos featuring REAL authentic moments is what I am all about. I will create images that tell the story of this season in your life in the best way possible. 

YOUR LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. PRESERVE IT FOR THE FUTURE.

HOW CAN
I USE MY PHOTOS?

Great news! Part of my job as your photographer is to help you with posing and movements that will solicit genuine smiles, authentic emotion, and all the good things you want to see in your final images.

I'll tell you how to stand, give guidance on how to interact, play games with your kiddos, and even give you priceless tips on the forever plaguing question about what to do with your hands.

Once we get those bits handled, I will make sure your hair is doing what it's supposed to do, that your lipgloss be poppin', and that distractions are removed or strategically cropped out of photos so the end result is picture perfect.

I AM TERRIBLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA.
WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?! PLEASE HELP ME!

We all know this: predicting weather in the PNW is probably one of the hardest things to do. We can wake up to a foggy, wet morning, enjoy sunshine, torrential downpour, maybe a little hailstorm, and then more sunshine with a giant rainbow. 

The days leading up to your session AND the day of your session we will be in touch about weather. I have a list of outdoor locations that work on a drizzly PNW day and access to beautiful photography studios if you prefer to be inside (for an extra fee). If the forecast is calling for weather making shooting conditions unsafe for any participants, we can absolutely reschedule.

Rainy wedding day? NO PROBLEM. I've shot in torrential downpour, hailstorms, windstorms, in fog and on beautiful sunny days. Part of my job is to find locations that keep you dry but still deliver good light. 

P.S. I have a stash of clear umbrellas, too.

THE FORECAST IS CALLING FOR ________.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE INCLEMENT WEATHER?

Simple answer? No. 

RAW images are just that, RAW. It's a bunch of data on our camera's memory card that needs to be pumped through my editing software in order to deliver vivid colors, deep shadows, gorgeous contrast, the whitest white tones and the blackest black tones. All final galleries will come with a personal print release for JPEG downloads included in your final package selections in both high resolution and web-sized format.

I hand edit each photo to ensure the final product matches the aesthetic you see here on my website. More questions about my editing philosophy? Click next to read the next question...

DO I RECEIVE RAW IMAGES
WITH MY PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGE?

I like to keep this simple, too. I hand edit each and every photo MYSELF. (No outsourcing for me!)

When I'm editing my clients' images, I follow a strict +/- two week rule. If it wasn't there two weeks ago, and isn't going to be there in two weeks: I'll take care of it. Bruises, scrapes, bumps, blemishes, or maybe a surprise booger popping out of your kiddo's nose? Don't worry, I'll take care of it.

My goal is to deliver a final gallery where the colors and mood of the photos match exactly what your eyes saw when we were together. Beautiful greens in the foliage, blue skies, warm skin tones. Black and whites will be classic in nature. You can expect to find a gallery with NO "film" edits, over saturated (or desaturated) colors, no trendy orange-y skin or washed out greens. 

WHAT IS YOUR EDITING
PHILOSOPHY?

Absolutely! My passport is current and ready for more stamps.

My job has taken me to Maui, Oahu, San Francisco, San Diego, Breckenridge, Denver, Mexico... the list goes on and on.

I love to travel and especially love shooting in new places! If you're wanting to book a session or event with me out of state or out of the county, fill out my contact form with more information! There is no travel fee if the roundtrip travel from our location (Lynnwood, WA) to/from the photography site is less than 50 miles. The travel fee for each event will be quoted on an individual basis, thusly quotes for sessions/events that require travel will be custom for each client.

Man, oh-man... Nothing makes me more mad than a dishonest person. This question shouldn't need to be asked, but in today's scam-filled world it's important to know that you are working with a true professional.

I'VE READ HORROR STORIES ONLINE
AND ON THE NEWS ABOUT SHADY PHOTOGRAPHERS.
ARE YOU THE REAL DEAL? CAN WE REST ASSURED YOU'll DELIVER?

We are often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is YES!

Our main goal right now is securing and saving your date.

You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we have a good idea of your timeline. Additional coverage may be added by the quarter hour before the event. Please note that there are overtime rates for coverage booked the day of the event. 

IS 8-HOURS ENOUGH TIME
FOR WEDDING DAY PHOTOGRAPHY?

We love being both interactive and discreet throughout the wedding day.

There will be parts of the wedding day when I will need to be in control in order to accomplish everything that needs to be done while staying on schedule. There will also be moments when you shouldn’t even know that I’m there. (The ceremony, during dances and toasts, etc.)

We teach our couples how to pose, model and interact during their engagement session so they are naturals on the wedding day and don’t need quite as much instruction! If you don't opt for an engagement session, don't worry! I'd say it's about a 50/50 split with my couples and they all receive wedding galleries of equitable size.

ARE YOU GOING TO BE POSING US
THROUGHOUT OUR ENTIRE WEDDING DAY?

Portrait sessions will have approximately 60-90 images for viewing in both color and B&W.

Weddings will have approximately 100-130 images per hour that we’re shooting if Eva is shooting with her second shooter. If Eva is shooting solo, she averages 75-90 images per hour that she is shooting.

Galleries will be delivered via email with information on how to download and suggestions on where to print. Galleries may be shared with friends and family, and may also be password protected at the clients' request. Boudoir galleries are ALWAYS password protected.

How many photos
will be in my final gallery?

Short answer? No.

Engagement sessions, however, are a REALLY great opportunity for us to get to know each other better. They're also the perfect rehearsal for your wedding day portraits. We won't have time restraints or a schedule to adhere to, and during our time together I will learn exactly how I need to communicate poses/movement to you to ensure you look natural in your photos. 

Engagement sessions are also wonderful for people who tend to be timid or shy in front of the camera. We get our wiggles out, talk about how awkward it all is.... and by the end of the session you'll be laughing and having fun. It really is a great ice breaker for wedding day portraits.

WA is included.

Is an engagement
session really necessary?

Weddings: Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that what we deliver is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is a booking proposal. I will create an online proposal that will walk you through the package and when you’re ready you can save your date by signing your contract and paying your deposit online. 

Portrait Sessions: Fill out the contact form and I'll be in touch!  I'll respond to your inquiry within 24 hours to talk about your photography needs. When you're ready to move forward, simply let me know and I will send over the "package builder" email where you will be able to make package selections and take advantage of some "at time of booking" specials on heirloom products and digital downloads. After your package has been built, you accept the quote and my contract and model release will be ready for viewing. Upon signing, a retainer fee is due to reserve your session/event day/time. 

I'M READY TO BOOK. 
SOOO.... HOW DO I DO THAT?

The first best wedding decision I made was marrying my groom. The second best decision was hiring Eva to do our photos. Eva is the BEST of the BEST. She makes it obvious that she truly cares about her clients. If you're looking for a photographer, absolutely hire Eva right now because you can trust her to deliver gorgeous photos and a wonderful experience.

Allison + Chad, Farmhouse Rose Wedding

We just keep going through those pictures and reliving our day... that is an incredible gift. Eva is so passionate and that comes through in her work. She really LISTENS to what you want and cares so much. Eva went all out and truly captured everything, things that we didn't even know happened, so that was great to be able to see. We gained a friend during this and cannot wait to work with Eva on our future family moments together.

Jamie + Brad, Hidden Meadows Farms Wedding

Eva is amazing!! Not only is she incredibly professional and delivers great photos (which is what it’s all about at the end of the day), but she’s also super friendly, communicative, and just a joy to work with. She was a friendly support system giving reassurance and advice where needed but was a journalistic "fly-on-the wall" when appropriate.

Megan + David, Sleeping Lady Resort Wedding

Eva is such an incredible photographer and instantly makes you feel like a great friend that you have known for years. I took one look at her website and portfolio and knew right away that she was someone special, who could capture beautiful images. We were and will continue to be more than satisfied with Eva's final product.

Sarah + Jamie, Fireseed Catering Wedding

She is incredibly professional, efficient, but knows how to keep people focused, while capturing the most beautiful moments throughout the day. We are so thankful to have worked with her, and have so many amazing pictures highlighting our wedding day - I have yet to stop looking at them. :)

Jessica + Michael, Kiana Lodge Wedding

Eva is incredible! She keeps you informed every step of the way and makes you comfortable in front of the camera. She captured our day perfectly :) and our family will continue to use her for events to come!

Lindsey + Ryan, Mountain Springs Lodge Wedding

Eva was extremely professional, fun, and made me feel comfortable! Sometimes the idea of a boudoir shoot can be intimidating and make you feel extremely vulnerable. Eva made me so comfortable, it was like I was talking to my best friend who just happened to be shooting me in sexy lingerie! 

Brooke, Boudoir Client

Eva is amazingly talented and an absolute blast to work with! We adore every photo. Her use of natural light is gorgeous and she has an incredible way of capturing the most precious details. I cannot say enough good things about Eva. Looking forward to many more sessions!

The M Family, Returning Portrait Clients

I can't thank you enough for how easy and comfortable you made it! We had kind of planned on skipping engagement pictures before we contacted you because I just didn't think we would be comfortable. It was great though, and even Josh said the experience was way better than he expected. I'm actually looking forward to the wedding picture process now, it's going to be so easy. So thank you! :)

Vanessa + Josh, Engagement Session Clients

I had such a positive experience with my session. Eva was friendly and responsive before I even met her, and I felt immediately comfortable with her as soon as I arrived for our boudoir session at the studio. I appreciated her personality and skill that made the session fun and allowed for the best possible end product. The editing she included in the final pictures was incredibly flattering but didn't make me look fake or airbrushed over.

Anonymous Boudoir Client

It was AMAZING! Eva picked a really urban chic studio to shoot which totally set the tone for my boudoir session. Eva does a wonderful job relating to her client and making them feel incredibly beautiful and special. She was open to my ideas but also had many of her own. I walked away from my hour session feeling giddy with excitement and confident that I would be obsessed with the final photos. Eva and her work does NOT disappoint!!

Sarah, Boudoir Client

Thank you SO much - I just took a look through the gallery and they are incredible! I have never been someone who loves to look at photos of myself, but you did such a beautiful job finding the most complementary angles, lighting, etc. that I am going to have a hard time narrowing down which ones make it to the book! (And my fear was not having enough for a book!)
