You can catch me listening to a variety of music while editing - from mellow indie to rap to hip hop, I am down to get down on the dance floor with you and your grandma! I love comedy - Ali Wong's stand up and horribly funny TV shows like Schitt's Creek, Broad City, or Workaholics keep me laughing! I've also been known to deep dive into true crime (Crime Junkies and Wine & Crime) and to read books that I know will make me cry like a baby!
 I love what I do and I am here for you every step of the way for your wedding! I am sincere in my care and dedication for every single one of my clients, and will help bring your vision for your big day to life. Let's pop the champagne, stuff our faces with cake, and have so much fun working together!

Here's what I do in my free time!

Are we a good fit...

I live in the suburbs of Seattle, but find myself in the city almost everyday! When I'm not shooting couples in love or behind the screen editing, you can find me in scrubs working as a nurse, traveling the world, or hanging with my sweet pup Lana and my husband John! 
My husband and I are high school sweethearts, and have been together for 11 sweet years and recently got married in June 2020! Being bisexual and an immigrant POC myself (Russian Middle Eastern Jew), I am LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC friendly! Love is love here and everyone is accepted!

I know how to be serious when I need to be, but deep down - I'm a big goof and a certified yapper! Known for my horrible (but punny) jokes, my surprisingly loud and contagious laugh, and my abundant enthusiasm in all that I do! I'm always up for an adventure and would love to explore out in nature  or the city with y'all!

I am your hype girl!

I'm Almida

Time is fleeting - and if being a trauma nurse has taught me anything, it's that life can change in a matter of seconds. Seeing people pass and families lives changed quickly and unexpectedly, I know that every special and happy moment in your life should be captured, because sometimes photographs are the only thing left. Even those events that seem small can have a lasting impact on you and your loved ones lives. Let your legacy and love live on, for generations to come. 

Why photos should matter to you too.

Let a storyteller document your life...

We've been together for 11 years now and met in high school when I got the courage to send a friend request to a guy I thought was cute AF! We got married in June 2020 so our wedding looked a bit different than expected! He's my BFF and continues to keep me laughing my butt off and I couldn't imagine life without him!

Cuddling up with my sweet ass husband! 

Just a month after being married we decided on a whim that we would adopt this sweet little babe! Lana is a corgi-chihuahua mix and frightens easily! Yet she loves being treated like a princess and held like a baby. Once she gets to know you, all she will want is cuddles!

Our silly little rescue pup Lana!

Before COVID hit, I made it a goal to travel someplace different every month! Traveling is my passion and I love experiencing new places and going on adventures. These photos are of me in Bali in Jan 2019 and Israel in August 2019. My last international trip was to the Dominican Republic in February 2023 and boy do I miss it! So far I've been to 16 countries and I'm hoping to add more to the list!

Traveling the world and new adventures!

I am the second oldest of 6 kids! CRAZY!! While they often drive me insane, I love my family deeply and they're a big part of my life. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be where I am today. My older sister is the one that introduced me to photography, and the others have been my photography projects at times! When the whole crew gets together, things can definitely get LOUD!

My big fat Russian - Jewish family!

I'll only get to enjoy a finite number of meals in my lifetime, and I hope to make every single one count. Food is truly the way to my heart! One of the best things to come out of my worldwide adventures has been the huge variety of cuisine I've tasted. Give me a great meal and pour me a strong mimosa and I'll be a happy camper!

Good drinks and even better food!
