michael rowley photography | seattle tacoma wedding + portrait photographer bio picture

you already know I'm a photographer.

what you may not know is when I'm not documenting weddings and couples I spend my time climbing the incredible mountains all over this beautiful earth. when I'm not climbing mountains I am usually running. and when I'm not running I'm usually stuffing my face with some scrumptious food.

drop me a line using the contact form and lets get together to talk details about your wedding day and maybe even grab a bite to eat.



perhaps it’s becoming ever increasingly difficult to define who an american is. our politicians run for office on many extreme polar viewpoints. the distance between social classes appears to be widening. the needs and wants of individual citizens is complexly unique. but I believe what america is, at its core, is largely unchanged and we will continue to be a nation revered by the world if we but adhere to principles of liberty. it is far too easy to point out the bad, unfortunate, and disastrous situations that surround us. it takes much more humility to realize the good, promising, and miraculous situations that we live in every day. I am beyond thankful to be born an american. while I am far from an historian I believe our founding fathers to be inspired men and their words full of wisdom.

Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected. – George Washington

my favorite lines from the star spangled banner:

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”

get outside and enjoy what our country has to offer! real, genuine, life-changing experiences can not be obtained from any person, gov’t, or entity, rather they must be sought after by the individual.

a mere two hour drive from seattle and tucked away in the north cascades. behold, a small slice of the enchantments:
