About us


Kier is from Orange County and Mitzi is from just outside Chicago.  We both moved to Seattle in the late 90’s.  We saw the same concerts and had the same Capitol Hill sushi haunt but it took over 10 years for our paths to cross.  When they did our lives and careers collided into a fabulous partnership.

We share a common love of music and photography. Kier caught the photo bug years ago and Mitzi always had a love of art and a mind for business.

We are located between Seattle and Tacoma and frequently travel throughout Washington, Oregon and California.  You can book us for your destination wedding, event or elopement and we will give you a reasonable travel quote (our passports are ready).

Life is good and we work hard to convey this in our work.  Call us and we will do a phone consultation or meet over coffee to talk about your photography needs, answer questions and, if we are a good fit, we can create a customized package just for you.

While we love photographing weddings we are a full service studio that can handle your portrait, corporate photography, lifestyle photography, senior portraits and Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah coverage. We also have a boudoir photography and pin up photography studio.

We are truly fortunate to get to work with amazing people.  Years ago we dreamed up the ideal client and that is the model we use to craft everything about our business. We LOVE our clients. They have fun in life and we are honored to serve them!
