Seattle Wedding & Elopement Photographers

it is so, so good to finally meet you

Let's Get Started


We're Laura & Devon, the folks behind Forthright Photo. We're two happy misfits chasing sunshine all over the Pacific Northwest, cameras and coffees in tow. We're adventure wedding and elopement photographers living in Seattle, Washington, but we're usually on the road. We believe wholeheartedly in the power of love stories, and we've become irreparably enchanted with the wild beauty of the outdoors. If you're anything like us, adventuring with your person is how you feel best loved, the wilderness is your happy place, and you've got a penchant for anything windswept and timeless. We have the incredible honor of documenting other people's love stories, and we can't wait to hear all about yours. With any luck, there will be some dusty shoes, good snacks, stunning views, and cute dogs involved.

Kimi & Derek

We love Laura and Devon! We flew in to the Pacific Northwest from Tennessee and they met us in Mt. Ranier for an engagement photo shoot. Not only did they have recommendations for good trails to check out (super helpful to us), but they perfectly captured the day with beautiful and timeless photos that we'll love forever. Since we were going backpacking the next day, they even rushed a sneak peak for us so we could enjoy our photos before losing cell service for a week. They are so great, total recommendation!


Kari & Sam

We had the pleasure of meeting Laura earlier in January when she shot our engagement photos and we were so impressed with those images that we couldn't wait to have her do our wedding! Laura was so unbelievably quick to respond to our initial inquiry & any questions leading up to the day. The level of organization and patience they had was so appreciated with the large bridal party we had and the family photos. We received our edited album very quickly and were blown away! Laura really captured the raw emotion of the day, all of the photos were candid & in the moment, nothing seemed forced or posed. My husband and I were so comfortable with Laura & Devon all day, they made it fun & easy! I would highly recommend them to any bride getting married. Laura clearly has an incredible talent & a knack for shooting outdoors that surpasses any photography I have ever seen!


S & M

We are nothing short of elated with the photos you both captured of our wedding day. We cannot thank you enough for doing exactly what we requested - you captured how that day felt more than just what it looked like. We cannot thank you enough for capturing that moment in time for us and we hope that you know just how much you have added to our lives by just being great at the career you have chosen for yourselves. We wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone.

Laura and Devon were nothing less than amazing! With all of the craziness, they had the upmost patience and good humor through it all. They made taking pictures easy and comfortable. Laura always got back to us in a timely manner with any questions and was always kind. We couldn’t stop talking about how easy they made the day for us and how impressed we were. Would recommend them in a heartbeat!


Britney & Stratton

From the initial vendor contact to doing our engagement photos and to the day of our wedding Laura and her husband Devon were amazing! Such an sweet couple that makes you feel comfortable because trying to be lovey dovey was not easy for me and my now husband. Laura has clearly worked many weddings and picked up some amazing things a long the way, because she was able to help make my flower crown work when it wasn't exactly what I wanted. I would definitely book them all over again!


Megan & Jordan

We absolutely love love love Laura and Devon. They went above and beyond the moon for us. They were there to keep us on track, provide pain meds, tide to go, humor, and our marriage certificate (that we forgot at our house!?!?). They not only were there for us, but they captured our wedding day in the most beautiful way. We definitely feel like we made some great friends after being with these guys all day. I wouldn’t trade them for any other photography duo!
