Hello! My name is Talissa.
Hello! I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Seattle, WA and I work for BURTco. Weddings, an award winning photography studio picked for the 2018 choice for weddings by The KNOT!
I love being able to capture a moment in time that tells a story of genuine love and laughter. Head over to the blog to catch a glimpse behind the scenes of different photography sessions as well as photos from my everyday life! You can also go to my portfolio to get an in-depth look at what your end result would look like.
I look forward to hearing from you and finding a time and place to photograph!
My husband and I set off on our 3,200 mile adventure to Seattle. We left our jobs, sold a house, and packed our belongings in order to move and plant a church in Seattle. All within the first 3 months of marriage! In this time our love has grown in understanding, patience, and service. This season of life has been flavored with silliness, fall over laughter, hurts, loss, and a deep sharing of self with the other. I wouldn't trade any of it! My mind keeps coming back to this simply put phrase: "It is happy to love." I can't wait to take the risk God is calling us into with the one I love.
My love for photography began in my early college years when I was a fine arts major. I took a photography class and began to dabble in photographing close friends and family. At the time other things took center stage but I never forgot my joy of capturing a composition in camera. I later studied to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant and worked three years in the Danville school district. I saw kids who needed my services and was able to communicate that they are seen, they are heard, and they are loved. This is what I want to do through the means of photography: capture people in a moment and assure them that they are seen and valued.
I'm so thankful to have a loving and supportive husband who is for me and I'm blessed by the support of my BURTco. family.
