I'm so glad you're here!

There's no better place to book your dream seattle wedding photographer 

Welcome! I'm Candace, the lead photographer and founder of Captured by Candace. I created CBC for vibrant and authentic couples like you. 

In 2017, the birth of my son drove me to take a break from corporate America to focus on my family. In doing that, my passion for photography couldn't be ignored and I decided to establish my business and share my love with others! 

Over the years, I've become a specialist as an interracial wedding photographer. I take great pride in my skill to be able to light and photograph you so that you and your partner look like your most radiant selves!

I'm a mother, academic, extroverted introvert, and recovering chocolate addict. I was born and raised in Seattle and know all the sweet spots for the best wedding and engagement photoshoots.

If you're an easy-going couple who values connection and you are looking for a skilled photographer who's professional, but feels more like a friend than a wedding vendor, I'm your girl!

the CBC team at work

Meet my amazing team! With years of experience in the wedding photography business, I have curated trusted associate photographers that I work with directly. Past clients agree that the Captured by Candace experience is organic, loving, and effortless. I ensure that this experience is guaranteed to you by my team members.

I will personally only shoot 15 weddings a year. The type of commitment I give my couples requires me to be fully present!

Even when I am not available, these vetted partners can capture your wedding with the same passion, style, and enthusiasm as I would.

Photos taken by my team are still hand-edited by me. Of course, all the CBC services and collections are available, and you can still work with me for your engagement shoot and to create your unique wedding and engagement photo albums.

I partner with talented photographers to bring you the CBC experience

Over the years , I've found that couples who work with me love to laugh and have a good time!  Most are inexperienced models (lol) who have never had their photos taken professionally. However, they are open to my process and up for almost anything! When we get together, I make you feel comfortable, we have  fun, and together we create photos that are a true reflection of your relationship!

1. are a light-hearted duo who loves to enjoy themselves! 

More than a huge celebration with too many guests to count and faces you haven't seen in years, you value the real, intimate connection between you and your partner. You've been looking forward to spending time together with your partner on your wedding day, and it's a major priority for the both of you.

Whether it's an intimate wedding, elopement, or wedding with hundreds of guests, you still want the celebration of your union to feel intimate - with your closesest community and support system.

2. Value Real Connections

If you've seen my photos on social media or in my portfolio, you should know that I love color! Clean, vibrant colors are my jam should be celebrated! More importantly, I use them to bring the organic nature of your love and friendship to life! When you look at my photos , I want you to see the depth of what my clients are feeling.

...and guess what? Just like my photos, I'm vibrant too! I smile a lot and bring tons of energy to your wedding day!
