Anna Peters

I’m Anna – Welcome!

My path to photography has been a little unconventional, but looking back it feels just right. I spent most of my life studying classical ballet, with a degree in Anthropology thrown into the mix, and both of those pursuits have deeply shaped how I see the world. In documenting a family in their home, wandering the streets of a new city, or capturing a heartfelt wedding, I witness glimpses of the way form and feeling come together to say something essential about the human experience. How we are wildly different, and also so much the same. I want to live, to breathe in, to dance in that in-between. 

Seattle is my home base and I draw so much inspiration from landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. To me, they have an untamed, sacred kind of energy - even the quiet scenes hum with life. I love when the settings of my photographs feel like places you might pause to enjoy during a long adventure together. Most of all, it's important for me to get a good feel for what's important to you, so the images we create together embody something beautiful and true about who you are.

When I'm not shooting or traveling, you can often find me (making a mess) in the kitchen preparing coconut milk, herbed bone broth, or some other project involving weird healthy food!

A review from: Olivia and Spencer

Anna went above and beyond by flying into Iceland for just over a day in order to photograph our special day. In a scenario that would have been challenging for anyone (jet lag, the culture shock of a brand new country), Anna was the epitome of professionalism. Her calming and compassionate presence throughout the day was such a gift, especially when emotions were running high. This is not something that Spencer and I had ever considered during the search for a wedding photographer, but as I look back, Anna’s good vibrations were vital to the immense success of the day. For that she has our gratitude forever! Executing the logistics of a destination wedding can be stressful. Anna was ready with hand warmers (Iceland is cold) and snacks when she could sense that I needed a boost. This simple gesture made me feel loved. Not to mention she carried my bridal bouquet in her lap during the entire two hour road trip to the ceremony so that my wedding dress wouldn’t get wet. 

As our memories fade, what we have left from our special day are the photos that Anna made for us. We are so happy that she chose to join us on this adventure because I really couldn’t picture looking back on anyone else’s perspective of our day than Anna’s. Every time I view our photos, I am consumed with a wave of nostalgia; not only because I would love to go back in time and revisit the day again, but because Anna’s artistry so effectively conveys the love, the emotion, and the fleeting nature a memory can have. I so admire Anna’s thoughtful approach and how much she weighs every decision she makes through her medium. I’m convinced that she is magical because of the way she sees the world, and the world she sees is infused with light, simplicity, and poetry.

A review from: Kortnee and Jacob

Choosing Anna as our wedding photographer was the easiest decision in our planning process. Anna's style is straight out of a fairytale: soft lighting, romantic poses, enchanting compositions, timelessness. Beyond that, though, was Anna's dedication to capturing those specific magic moments, moments that had the most meaning for my husband and I, and doing so with such grace and warmth. Anna held a completely intimate space for our couple portraits while also commanding our rowdy 18-person bridal party, a feat which would be utterly impossible for a normal person that Anna conducted so effortlessly.

Our wedding photos are nothing short of stunning. Thank you, Anna, for capturing the best day of our lives so brilliantly! I would choose you again and again and again.
