Seattle Wedding and Elopement Photography


Hi, I'm Caroline Spiz!

And that's my cat, Pikuś (pronounced pee-koosh). He's my sweet Canadian cat with a Polish name. I’m the primary voice of Spiz Photography.

I'm a wedding and elopement photographer based in Seattle, WA. You may also know Ziggy Spiz. He’s my dad and he’s been around the scene here for a long time. Ziggy is the one to blame for the start of my photography career. ;)

Just got engaged? You're in the right place!

My goal is to create beautiful pictures that tell the story of your wedding day that can stand test of time. You'll experience thoughtful, guided posing but my passion is for capturing authentic, candid moments with genuine feeling.

I'd love to be your photographer on your special day and capture all of the memories you'll cherish forever.

My approach to wedding photography

I want you to find the photographer that you click with the best (and it's totally fine if that's not me)! Here is a little about what to expect working with me.

My photography style

My approach to photographing your wedding day is relaxed and experienced (I’ve been helping my dad, Ziggy, at weddings since I was 13!). I want your photos to stay timeless so you can look back on them decades from now and see the beautiful moments, not the trends.

Portraits and Posed shots

More than likely, your wedding day is one of the only times you’ll ever be professionally photographed in your life. I’ll guide you into natural and thoughtful poses so you’ll feel like you know what you’re doing in front of the camera. Rest assured, I’ve got an eye for detail and I will tell you to take a break when your smile is stiff, pick lint and stray hairs off your clothes, and make sure your clothing is still laying flat.

Your wedding day is not just a ceremony, it’s a day where your friends and family come together to celebrate your love. One of my favorite things to do as a photographer is to stand back and sneak pictures of genuine laughs, conversations, embraces of not just the two of you, but also your guests because they deserve to be celebrated too.

Lighting and location

Not all light is created equal! I prefer softer light and I take a lot of care in selecting the perfect backdrops at your wedding venue to represent your wedding perfectly with the best, most flattering light.
