Feel free to reach out to me on the
Contact page. Hello, I am Edlyn. I love to make photos but most of all I love to make photography accessible to everyone. I have been playing with film, phone and digital cameras for as long as I can remember but didn’t think much of my abilities until I volunteered as a photographer for
Rain City Rock Camp in Seattle in 2013. With the help of the community, I was able to grow in confidence and skill. That journey has brought me here. I am always learning, growing, breathing and looking for ways to help you remember the tiny beautiful moments as we go along. (As of May 14, 2021, I will be vaccinated and I look forward to working with you with my mask on (still!) but with a lot more relief.)

I am very comfortable shooting a wedding of 150+ people on my own. If you really feel it would give you better coverage to have another set of eyes on your big day, let me know and I can suggest the best option for you. Because all projects are different, I prefer to work with you to come up with a service cost that’s reasonable for the work being done. Please contact me for more details. I charge a non-refundable booking fee, which is 50% of the total cost of the photoshoot. My rescheduling policy is flexible owing to covid-19 restrictions and weather conditions. I am also open to discussing a flexible payment plan or a sliding scale form of payment for certain clients. I believe photography should be accessible to EVERYBODY. On that note, let’s talk more.
How would you describe your photography style?
My photography style aims to capture candor and I give direction accordingly, so I can capture you in those in-between moments. My editing style focuses a lot on true colours and light. I try to capture the mood as it was, as much as I can while editing.
Do you photograph more than just people?
Yes! I also specialize in branding photography. I can help you use photography to grow your brand and market yourself to your preferred audience. I am also a self-taught food photographer and I use a lot of what I learnt from there to style or photography products as well. You can check out some of my food photos on my blog egeedee.com
Did you study photography?
No. I started out as a journalist (editor and writer) and I’m learning as I go. I’ve been making photos since 2005(!) so I felt like this was a good time to do this professionally. I am very confident behind the camera and my experience working in journalism and customer service gives me an edge when interacting with people of all backgrounds.
What do you recommend we wear to our photoshoot?
I generally tell people to go with what feels comfortable but since that’s too open-ended, here are a few suggestions for the various types of shoots. Headshots: First think of the vibe you want to create through your photos and what your line of work is. For a corporate headshot? Choose professional attire like button-down tops, a blazer, suit jacket, pants or a skirt. Stick to neutral colours but also take into account what complements your skin tone. Some folks might look too washed out in white so in that case, brights like red or yellow would work out perfectly. Try to stay away from busy prints to keep the attention on your eyes. For a more semi-formal or creative headshot, you will have a lot more freedom, which can also feel a lot more restrictive at times. So remember the same guidelines as above but keep your personal style at the top of the priority list. Family photos: I think your family looks amazing when you co-ordinate outfit colours. Parents, pick a palette and play dress-up within the colour scheme. For example, if you pick yellow and grey, try to add one or more of those colours in all your outfits. If you want suggestions for what colours go well together in my opinion, discuss it with me before your shoot and I will give you some tips. Couples: This is where I say to let you personal styles shine! Keep comfort on top of your list. If you want to wear shoes that might not be too comfortable for standing or walking in, bring a change so you can get out of them as soon as the shoot is done. Same with jackets or a warm item of clothing you can cloak yourself in if it gets cold. Newborn photos: I don’t pose newborns in anything other than their natural states so if you would like to use props, please let me know and I will accommodate them in my shot list. Soft, neutral colours always work with babies so consider your babies’ skin tone and decide what’s best.
