About my wedding photography:
My name is Anna Simonak. I am a natural light, journalistic, lifestyle Seattle Wedding Photographer serving Seattle, Tacoma and the Pacific Northwest areas. I love capturing unique moments, meeting amazing couples and capturing all the love that is present on the wedding day. To me photography is all about capturing true authentic moments between individuals. I strive for each couple’s personality to shine through in the photographs. My favorite moments to photograph are when the couple is caught up in a moment of joy with their family and friends unaware that they are even being captured.
How my photography career began:
My first ever camera was a little Kodak Instamatic 104 which I purchased at a thrift store in middle school. I had a lot of fun taking square photos of my chickens and dolls. In high school I joined a photography club where I got to learn to develop images in the darkroom – which fascinated me. I minored in photography in college and after graduation I second shot under a few photographers and then started booking weddings on my own. The more more I photographed weddings the more I fell in love with the idea of becoming a wedding photographer full time. I’ve been photographing weddings since 2010 and I love what I do and am so thankful that I am able to do this for a living.
About my personal life:
I am married to a wonderful man named Garth who supports me and has helped me every step of the way in my photography career. We met at Ithaca, NY where we both attended college. We have an adorable kitty named Winky who we love to spoil with lots of treats and kitty toys. When I’m not photographing weddings I love hiking, exploring the PNW, learning about local history and cooking.
