Meet Jan

“Because images speak of love in a way that language cannot.”


I have always appreciated various forms of fine art, but it was photography which felt like a natural extension of myself. That connection started early in my life and has always been the common thread. How ideal that my first job, while still in high school, was at a photography studio. Throughout college life and my worldwide travels, various occupations and volunteer experiences, I embraced life by capturing images which speak to my heart. 

I am blessed to earn a living doing something I love. I started my business 20 years ago, photographing up to 70 weddings a year. Several years ago, I expanded my repertoire to include H.S. seniors & family portraiture. As an artist, it is LOVE which inspires me. Whether it is romantic love or parental love, it is a strong bond, absolutely palpable at times, and certainly worthy of honoring with precious images.

My goal is to create beautiful images which stand the test of time; the photographs which hold magic for you, and me, years later. I wholeheartedly agree with the famous photojournalist Dorothea Lange, "Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”

I call Seattle home, and have photographed all around the world. I welcome destination weddings. Consider me “Passport & Camera Ready”.
