Cara and Jared | Mount Rainier National Park Elopement, WA

Henry is so funny and friendly and was just so much fun to be around, you become friends instantly. He was our number one choice and we were so lucky to be able to have him as our photographer.
The whole thing was an amazing experience, he was such an important part of our day I couldn't imagine it without him. And the pictures he got of us were beyond incredible, he was able to capture all our emotions in such a intimate and beautiful way.

Henry is absolutely fantastic! He did our engagement shoot and I am so happy we chose him. He made the process so easy and made sure that we had an absolute blast. From helping us narrow down on an amazing location to giving us outfit advice, Henry knows his stuff! We were blown away by the final product. Literally took my breath away! I highly recommend working with Henry!

Eleanor and Matthew | Whidbey Island Elopement, WA

Where do we begin? Our experience with Henry was nothing short of perfect.We had high expectations and he exceeded them in every way possible. Moments after meeting he felt like a very good friend of ours and made us feel so comfortable. Our pictures turned out so beautiful and we could not be more grateful to have these for the rest of our lives.
We didn't want our special day to end and everyone involved was very appreciative of Henry's genuine and thoughtful approach. After the ceremony our families were more excited to talk about Henry than the actual wedding!

Henry was so great! We were such amateurs and he made us feel comfortable posing and got the exact look and feel we wanted. Booking was super easy and online. Photos were delivered a million times faster than I expected and were exactly what I wanted! :) He was super flexible with location and other specifications that you would need. I definitely would recommend!

BOOK. HENRY. NOW. My husband and I had such a fun time with Henry. We had a not-so-great experience with our wedding photographer, so for our anniversary I booked Henry as a surprise for my husband. We hiked to a beautiful lookout, all got to know each other, and then Henry took AMAZING photos of us. Plus I should mention, my husband is not overly comfortable in front of strangers and lots of people. Despite the crowd at the lookout, Henry made us both feel comfortable, played music, and had us dancing and goofing off, which led to such fun, genuine moments in the pictures. We left that evening with some great memories, great photos, and honestly a great friend in Henry. He's such a sweet, genuine person and we loved the time we shared with him (not to mention, he's talented as heck).

Henry was fabulous! Took the time to find the perfect area to document our photos and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Once we received the photos we were BEYOND pleased with the outcome!! Each photo is truly a work of art and we cannot wait for him to document our wedding!!!

Snow winter elopement on mount rainier national park

Jeniffer and Dan | Mount Rainier National Park Elopement, WA

Dearest Henry,
Jeniffer and I are absolutely enamored of your photographic work!
Our experience was made truly most memorable by the individuals with whom it was shared. You and Viet were an integral part of that day which makes your photography all the more meaningful to us since we came to know the beauty in your hearts. We are so grateful that you were able to capture our raw and obvious love for one another in a way that is portrayed effortlessly to anyone who peruses the images.

We revisit our time on Mount Rainier often in conversation, and now your artistry brings the memory to life.

We’re presently sitting in front of a roaring fire: I’m writing this to you, and Jeniffer is writing a review for Erika. We’re both so pleased with everyone’s efforts to make our elopement a beautiful memory we’ll carry for the rest of our lives. I can’t count the number of friends I’ve showed and sent our sneak peaks to in the past 3 weeks and five days (hah! whose’s counting!). We get so many positive comments, like, “that ought to be in a magazine,” or “that’s stunning!”

Henry's work is phenomenal: moody, intimate and grand in a way that does justice to your venue. We trusted him to photograph our elopement, knowing that the images would be the only way that our loved ones could experience our day. He produced a gorgeous narrative that looks like it came straight out of a magazine spread--much to the delight of our families. He's not afraid of experimentation (no stiff, boring posed photos here!) and trusting his artistic eye will only end well for you! Whenever I show off my photos, I still feel a sense of pride and joy. 

If there there's anything that exceeds Henry's photography, it's his personality. He's so personable and passionate about knowing and capturing you. We instantly felt at ease with him, and our time together was fun and relaxing. On a day that's so stressful, he and his work are a guaranteed ray of sunshine. We are so lucky to have had him!

First Dance at Roche Harbor Wedding on San Juan Islands of Washington

Evelyn and Jordan | Roche Harbor Resort Wedding, San Juan Islands, WA

We didn't know what qualities in a wedding photographer we needed to look for, considering neither of us have ever been married before. However, now that we've checked that off the list, we can confidently say Henry is everything that we wanted in a photographer to capture such a magical day.

For those who also might not have an idea of what to look for, here are some examples. You need someone calm, collected, skilled, patient, organized, relatable, and of course fun. You need someone to make you feel comfortable doing all the fabulous poses, especially if you're more on the reserved side, like we were. You also need someone who actually gives a damn. Someone that is willing to work with you, support you, and responds to you. Henry radiates all of the above qualities and more. He faced his fear of heights for our engagement shoot, he personally drove us around for wedding photos, and got down with Drake during the reception. What really sold him to us, besides his beautiful portfolio, was his transparency and responsiveness. We liked that he didn't try to hide the price of his services. And when we asked if he was available on our date, he responded in a few hours! Every email or text exchange after hiring him remained just as prompt.

You will not regret hiring Henry. He will bring everything he has to the table. We were so lucky to have been able to book him as our photographer capturing one of the most important days for us. We couldn't be happier with the photos he took for us, and look forward to future years of friendship.

Trinh and Hung | Panther Creek Falls Elopement, WA

When it comes to wedding photography, there’s a whole lot of average, and it’s easy to make the wrong choice. We drooled over the moodiness of Henry’s portfolio and hoped that we’d get something even half as good. We weren’t disappointed at all, the shots we got back were amazing! Henry is professional, efficient, friendly, and most importantly he made is feel at ease so we could just be ourselves.

Not only would we recommend him, we would shout it from the rooftops!

Henry was so amazing. So professional and easy going. My fiancé and I had so much fun taking our engagement photos. We had so many laughs and are so happy with how the photos turned out because our smiles were so genuine. Him and his husband made such a good team. I can’t wait for Henry to shoot our wedding :)

Henry blew our ever-loving MINDS!!

I have been an admirer and follower of his work on Social Media for a while, and finally got the courage to ask him to shoot our family. I figured, “there is no way our family can look as good as his beautiful subjects, but we will try!” And turns out, we COULD look that good! Henry made me, deep in the throes of first trimester pregnancy sickness, look like I knew what the heck I was doing, and beautiful to boot! And he made me FEEL beautiful! So encouraging the entire shoot! As for our kids- wildlings that don’t take direction well- they look like tiny models too! So smiley, so sweet, so freaking beautiful- I still cry looking at these images of them a week later. My husband looks great too, but he always does. Rude!

Henry picked a perfect spot for us- I gave him loose ideas and he nailed it. He captured us being free, and snuggling, and got some truly magical moments for our family. He never posed us in stagnant ways; he played along with us. He had super fun, creative ideas that turned out better than I could have imagined. Our smiles are so genuine because it was such a positive experience.

He was even so positive and encouraging in the outfit planning! I sent off some texts of options with very word-y descriptions and he immediately replied with his thoughts and expertise. Our final cohesive look is in big part to him. I somehow didn’t pack coats for any of us (??) and Henry OFFERED the literal coat off his back to our five year old. I think he even offered to carry him back after our trek! Who is this person?!

The flow of the shoot, the conservation, the guidance- it was all so natural. We got back into the car that night, not knowing how WE did but feeling a great happiness and peace about the experience itself. We got sneak peeks in less than a day and literally shrieked at how good they were!! He exceeded our expectations above and beyond. We got our full gallery back and I just kept gasping. How did he capture us, so well, and so beautifully?! We got so many beautiful images; not a single throw-away in the mix!

This is his calling. This is what he is made to do. I am just so happy to have been a part of it. He has friends and clients for life in us.

We were very pleased with having Henry take our wedding pictures for our elopement. It was the best day of my life and it would not be the same without Henry and his help. He found us the perfect location and made us feel completely at ease and relaxed, just enjoying ourselves, the company and our special day. I’ve never felt so good. 

The pictures turned out amazing, he captured the moment, the happiness, our hopes and dreams, and I am forever grateful. Every time I look at our album, I remember the feeling of that day. 

Adventure Mount Rainier National Park Engagement

Kayla and Cole | Mount Rainier National Park, WA

Going to Seattle was always something I wanted to do, and it was my boyfriend and I's first trip together as a couple. I really wanted to have our photos taken while we were there. I wanted photos to capture our time there, allowing me to relive those moments again and again. When I first found Henry's work, I wanted to reach out immediately. He exceeded every expectation I had for our pictures, not mention he was a complete joy to work with. He was funny, charismatic, sweet, genuine, and made us feel completely comfortable taking the pictures. I now have pictures from my new favorite place, with my favorite person that I get to keep forever. Henry did such a beautiful job capturing the "raw" us, being completely ourselves. I'm so lucky to have had my pictures taken by Henry, and these are moments I get to keep with me forever because of it :) I know if I'm ever back in Seattle, or needing my pictures taken for any other occasion, Henry is definitely at the top of my list of people to contact!! He's amazing!!

Deception Pass Engagement Photo

Cristina and Nathan | Deception Pass State Park, WA

When looking for a photographer to shoot our engagement photos, we weren’t sure exactly what we wanted, but we were drawn to Henry’s style. The tones, nature, and love portrayed in his photos was exactly what we wanted for our own. The booking process was simple and straightforward, and Henry was available to answer any questions we had. He had suggestions for locations, answered questions about outfit choices, and gave us all the necessary info to be prepared for the shoot. He also encouraged us to bring our puppy Maya, which meant the world to us! Once we were there, he made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and he had patience with Maya (she doesn’t like to sit still) while we took photos with her. We also really appreciated Viet taking care of her while we took photos alone. And then there’s the photos themselves, which are INCREDIBLE! We got even more photos back than we expected and each one was so beautiful.

Both Henry and Viet are wonderful, talented people and we really enjoyed working with them! 10/10 would recommend.
