I grew up on a little island in the Pacific called Guam, ever heard of it? This means I am on “island time” (figuratively, of course. I’ll make it to your wedding on time!) and I live life with a laid back, friendly approach.
Growing up on such a small island, it’s hard to not think of everybody like family. Guam is a melting pot of cultures, which has made me open and accepting of all people, regardless of differences in looks, language, values, you name it.
I now live in the great PNW with my husband, Cotey. We help raise his nephew along with his mom (#modernfamily). Our little family is everything to me.
THE ABBREVIATED HISTORY OF TIFFANY:
beautiful weddings photographed.
countries traveled. My fav? Australia!
the number of Americanos I need to start my day.
The Gorge Amphitheater, one of the coolest outdoor concert venues in the region, is just a short drive from my house! It's always a good time!

Leavenworth at Christmas is just so magical. Cotey even proposed to me in Leavenworth, that's how much that little town has my heart!

It's become a friendly competition to see how many times we can get on the jumbotron for our crazy dance moves (my personal best- 3!)
My husband Cotey and I are foodies at heart. He’s a chef, I’m a self-proclaimed taco connoisseur, so we're pretty much always eating!
What I love Most:
I came to photography from journalism, with more than 10 years of crafting stories to my name. Did I choose journalism as a major because it was the only program to not require a math class? Well, maybe it was a strong factor, but in reality I found my passion in journalism.
There is something so powerful about using words and images to explore issues and stories that matter, stories that might never be heard otherwise. We tell stories to understand what’s happening now and so future generations can access what we learned.
Even though I'm no longer in the newsroom, that desire to tell stories still lives within me. It’s why I look at your love on your wedding day and see a story well worth telling and preserving.
MY JOURNEY BEGAN WHEN...

First and foremost, I want to make sure your day is stress-free and fun. You worked out a gazillion details to make your wedding happen your way, you fought for your love. You should – no! – you WILL have the most memorable, powerful, satisfying day.
Next, please know that I’m in this for you, always for you. Not for my followers on social media and not to build my portfolio. You’re the sun on your special day, I’m happily caught in your orbit.
Finally, I rock the “chillness” and calm vibes, but there are a few things I take suuuuper seriously. I take my roles as memory preserver, moment capturer and secret keeper seriously. I also take your comfort and care seriously. Seriously, I’m so serious...
So stoked to help you celebrate on the best day of your life!
