Hey there, I'm Vikki!

Welcome to my blog!

As a Seattle Wedding Photographer, I do my very best to provide as many pieces of information to provide as much value to you as I can. From laying out a photography timeline to picking the Seattle wedding venue right for you…

Let’s dive into some expert knowledge written just for you.

The Best Seattle Wedding Venues outside of Seattle

The best Seattle Wedding Venues

Seattle Wedding Venues

Seattle Wedding Photographer

Okay, I know. You read the title and said, “Wait, what?” As a Seattle Wedding Photographer I questioned myself too about making this post. But I’ve had many brides who were looking for Seattle Wedding Venues and when they put more thought into what they actually wanted for their wedding, they’ve come to realize that a city wedding isn’t what they were looking for.

#PeaksxPinesBrides have a love for the outdoors. They value those special moments with their loved ones and having a laid back, stress-free day. The thought of having to travel from one location to the other for photos or other things and the stress that comes with where you’re going to park, is something that doesn’t interest #PeaksxPinesBrides.

So, I wanted to take the time and create this free resource for you to check out. Even if you haven’t reached out to me yet to be your wedding photographer, you’re still most certainly planning your Seattle Wedding. Of course any list of “Best Seattle Wedding Venues” is going to be 100% subjective to personal interests, but these are my favorite venues that are right outside the city.

As always, let me know if you have any questions about these Seattle Wedding Venues or about anything else. And remember, no matter the distance I would LOVE to be your wedding photographer!

I stumbled upon Vikki on Instagram and her portfolio was what drew me in. From the beginning, communication was breeze. The many emails that we exchanged felt like she was a friend I’d already known. When the day came for our wedding shoot, there was no awkwardness, she was helpful in directing us how to stand and pose, and as an added bonus, she was the best hype woman ever!

She was the best hype woman ever!

I was referred to Vikki by a friend and I am SO glad I was!! We booked her for our wedding and after looking at her portfolio and chatting with her, I knew we made the right choice! Vikki is so friendly and fun to work with and she made our awkward nerves instantly go away. I can't wait for our wedding photos and would 1000% refer her to anyone looking to have a great photos taken and have a blast while taking them! Book her now!

Vikki captured moments at our wedding reception. I don't even know where to start with my experience with her! I absolutely loved every moment working with her. My husband and I can't thank her enough for working with us. She made the moments enjoyable and truly captured real moments. She is amazing, fun, and patient! Her work is amazing. I would highly recommend her!

All in all, such a fun person to work with, a memorable experience, and truly beautiful photos. Cannot recommend her enough.

We've never had a photoshoot before and we are so awkward. But somehow Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable with each other in front of the camera. She really tries to get to know you as a couple and reflect it through her photos. The pictures turned out amazing, and we knew we had to book her for our big day! We got so many compliments from our friends and family on our engagement photos. Can't wait to work with her again for our wedding!

Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable...

Alexis & Jeffrey



After going through the process of researching, I quickly realized that it's so so important to choose someone you connect with. From the get go, we were both so glad that we found Vikki. When we received our gallery we were speechless. We also sent our gallery to family/friends and told us that they were speechless & cried while doing so. How do you rate perfection? 5 stars isn't enough. Bride (and Grooms), if you are looking for a photographer, you WILL NOT regret hiring Vikki.
