10 PNW Wedding Photographers You Should Follow On Instagram.

The PNW is saturated with talent. There are so many amazing photographers in the area, that it can be overwhelming to figure out which ones to follow; let alone which one to select for your wedding day. I have compiled a list of 10 PNW wedding photographers for you to check out on Instagram, many of which are near and dear to my heart! I hope you enjoy their work as much as I do!

*These photographers are listed in no specific order


1. Jonathan Gipaya

Jonathan is a destination wedding & portrait photographer based in Seattle, WA. He is a photographer that is always on the move and pushing himself to try new areas of photography. His tones, composition and adventurous spirit make him my favorite photographer in the northwest. Jonathan is always traveling so his Instagram feed is always filled with new beautiful places, but most of my favorites are taken right here in the PNW.
When he approached Zach and I to do a styled shoot with him at Lake Diablo, I was THRILLED. The obvious answer was "duh." I enjoyed working with him so much. He was so organized and posed us like a champ. Check out his work y'all. He is the BEST.


2. Logan Smith/LMS Photo

Logan is another Seattle based photographer, and founder of Northwest Creatives (another Instagram account you should probably follow too.) I found out about his work after he was the second shooter at our wedding, and instantly became a fan. I hope to shoot with him again, this time on an adventure shoot! His work is killer so go follow him now!!


3. Shelby Payne

Shelby Payne is the bomb.com, people. We hired her off of a referral for our wedding and she absolutely KILLED it. We love the mood she captures in her photos, but more importantly love her bubbly personality. Seriously one of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met, and oh so talented!
She is another Washington based photographer, but is always down to travel. Her account is full of adventure as well as wedding/professional shots. Totally worth the follow - go hire her for your wedding!! 


4. Rachel Peterson

Rachel Peterson is another one of my favorite talented people on this planet. She not only takes gorgeous photos, she is a videographer, an avid traveler in her off season, and loves giving back to make the world a better place! She posts frequently about her trips with Humanity and Hope United, and I just love seeing what she is doing next! 
Rachel was the videographer for our wedding and literally couldn't have done a better job. She is so kind, easy to work with, and one of those people who instantly feels like a friend. Check her out!  


5. Echo Photo

My experience with Echo Photo was for one of my best friend's weddings. I was a bridesmaid in the wedding, so had little interaction with Jessi on a personal level, but she just seemed like the sweetest and was so professional! I have loved following her Instagram ever since, so give her a follow! 


6. Kami Dishman

KNDM CO.! Guys, Kami is seriously the coolest person I have met... EVER. She is such a girl boss and has the most empowering, friendly personality. I met Kami after signing up for one of her boudoir bashes (which also amazing and you should totally check it out, ladies.) She makes her clients feel so good about themselves and totally comfortable in front of the camera. I am working with her again next month and CAN'T WAIT! 


7. Karra Leigh

I recently found Karra's work through following @pnwedding and was instantly captivated by the moods in her photography. She is located in Portland, OR - but like most is willing to travel. I love finding photographers with killer style, and who also love Jesus like Karra does. I have never worked with her before, but hope to in the future!  Keep killin' it, Karra!


8. Jordan Voth

I heard about Jordan through @pnwedding as well (seriously go follow that account, its a gold mine.) His work is some of the most breathtaking I have seen. His mood, tone and composition make some of the most perfect PNW photography, that I just can't get enough of! He has a whopping 90k followers and it's no question as to why. Go throw your money at him, people. UH-MAZ-ZING. 


9. Kylie Morgan

Kylie is a traveling wedding + elopement + couples photographer based out of Boise, ID. As I was looking through her website, it was hard to narrow down to a few highlights to share with you all. Her work screams adventure, so if you and your significant other love to live life on the wild side, hit her up! I've never had a chance to work with Kylie, but would absolutely love to in the future for some pretty adventure shots with Zach.


10. Wyat Taylor

Holy moly. Look at these photos, people. MOOD, ROMANCE, OMG. The light in all his work is flawless. He is located in Seattle, WA specializing in couples photography. My favorite work of his was shot at one of my most favorite places to explore in the PNW, Deception Pass. Check him out, give him a follow and all you newly engaged people, hit him up to hire him! I hope to meet him sometime in the future for an anniversary sesh. Amazing work, Wyat!
