Reluctantly, because I have been spending a great deal of time driving lately, I have updated my service area and the areas where I now have a travel surcharge. The travel surcharge only applies to shoots with services totaling less than $200.

I used to love to drive, but because I live in Seattle—home to the worst drivers on the planet—I find myself avoiding driving, especially during certain times and to certain places. If it takes me longer to drive to a shoot than to actually do the shoot itself, it's gonna cost you.

Before booking a shoot, be sure you are aware of these changes and any potential surcharges. Please note the list of communities not serviced, including Auburn and Federal Way which have been recently added.

I travel a wide range within the Seattle-Everett metropolitan area. Those areas shown within the green border on the map are within my normal service area. Areas outside of the green border and within the red border are subject to a $20-30 travel surcharge. This is due to increased fuel costs and the heavier traffic that results in more time (and fuel) spent driving.

The following is a list of the communities that I service along with a zip code. If the zip code for the location for your planned photo shoot isn't listed, there's a good chance I don't service that area.  If the zip code has an asterisk (*), not every address in that zip code has the same surcharge.  Please contact me to determine a price.
