I am a wife, a mother and a passionate person. Fine Arts, music and theatre have been a part of my life before I was even out of the womb (As you might have noticed by my name). I learned how to take photos on my Dad's old Pentax from the 70's in college just as he did. After years of blood sweat and a whole lot of tears, the mechanics of film came together for me. Learning how to shoot originally with film I think was a massive blessing. I since then have obviously graduated to the most updated Canon products, but have a special love with film.

I believe that photos should tell a story and show an emotion that you can relive every time you look at a photograph. Posing is something that I do love to do, but I also love to connect with my clients so that they feel comfortable and happy to be working with me. I apologize ahead of time for my cheesy jokes and gabbers, but making you laugh is something I love to do! My mission is to provide you with timeless photographs that you can enjoy on display in your home for a lifetime, not just a trend that you may grow out of in ten years.

My team and I know that your wedding is irreplaceable and deserves our full commitment and hearts poured into your special day. When you choose to start your journey with Ballad's Photography, you are not just a client or paycheck; you are a new friend. An ordinary or typical experience for my brides will never be acceptable. The mission of this business is to be one of the highlights and favorite memories from your special day.

I understand that each bride is unique and different from the next. This is why an engagement session is included in every package. Getting you comfortable and understanding your wants and needs are the main focus for me. Ballad’s Photography is committed to showcasing your beauty, style and story through timeless photos and gorgeous albums.”

I have been published by some of the largest professional wedding magazines worldwide. Some of these include:

*Borrowed and Blue

*The Wedding Channel

*Savvy Deets Bridal

*The Lovely Bay

*Paper Moon Weddings

*Senior Style Guide

*Wed4Less Northwest

Ballad is an amazing photographer. She is professional, efficient, and friendly. She always responded to our emails within 24 hours. Her questionnaire was detail-oriented and assisted us to format general ideas of timeline and programs. She was very flexible at the wedding. We wanted to have group photos in two different places and made requests at the wedding day. She immediately agreed and provided excellent cooperation. I'd highly recommend her service.

I truly don't know where to begin, as words cannot do justice. Ballad Hall was hands down the highlight of our wedding planning process and day of shenanigans. We knew the importance of finding a wonderful photographer and cannot thank her enough for her truly amazing work. After the recommendation of a friend who had worked with Ballad in the past, we booked our engagement session and instantly knew this was our photographer. She is such a fun, light-hearted and truly inspiring person to work with. I have never been fond of having my picture taken, but we had such a blast and could not be more pleased with our engagement photos!!

Ballad was there every step of the way and helped tremendously in determining and laying out our timeline for the big day. Our wedding location was a bit of drive for her, and a location she was unfamiliar with. Ballad and her second shooter showed up the evening before to survey the venue and scope it out for the following day. When the time finally came, we were off to a rather chaotic start but Ballad never blinked an eye and was able to capture all of the important moments. Many friends and relatives commented on how wonderful she was to work with as well! We were so eager to see the photos and were pleasantly surprised by the quick turnaround. Our wedding gallery is perfect! We have so many wonderful pictures that we will cherish for years to come. The hardest part is narrowing down our top choices to fit them into wedding albums and selecting a few for enlarged prints.

Again, we cannot thank Ballad enough. We were truly blessed to have found her and cannot wait to work with her again in the future!!

Ballad is awesome! We were referred by a friend and since then at least two more friends who are getting married will also work with her. That speaks for itself, she is great to work with!

We had two engagement sessions and our wedding day, and Ballad was always on time, easy to work with, and so nice to my wife and I.

Her pictures all turned out amazing and she's so easy going the whole time, she let the bridal parties mess around and kept picture taking from being a chore. She even coaxed a horse into cooperating for a few pictures.

If she's available, I absolutely recommend hiring her.

Ballad is unparalleled. From her undeniable artistic talent, to her sweet demeanor and willingness to appease her clients, Ballad is amazing-- the best you will find. I have worked with Ballad multiple occasions and each time I am blown away by her talent. From her creativity and capturing the most beautiful photos, to her gentleness, patience, and sense of humor, Ballad will make your day incredibly special and memorable. Words don't do her justice; just look at her work... A picture's worth a thousand words!

Thank you, Ballad, for capturing so many special memories and sharing your incredible talent. You are truly special!

Ballad is a very friendly lady, with a great sense of style and sharp eye. I was drawn to her photography with its rich colors and dynamic poses. She worked with us to get a package deal that was in our budget and provided services and products that we wanted. Our engagement shoot was fun and an adventure, and she loved what we would do naturally together, encouraging silliness over all posing. She was very responsive when we first started out, but the later it got in to the things the less we heard from her. Only some questions would come back answered which was frustrating (she's a busy family lady, we get it). The wedding was fantastic, and she and her partner captured the best moments of our family and had unique ideas. They were flexible when we wanted to do a separate outing in the middle. However, once it was over, it was like she dropped off the face of the planet. It was tough to get answers about albums and other services after the fact. The kicker was after all the communication back and forth, and double and triple checking, our family albums (which were supposed to be xmas gifts) came in *wrong*. It was ratified in the end, but was very stressful and challenging to maintain patience after everything. Overall I would still recommend her if you have a flexible schedule and are extra careful about how you communicate. She's a great photographer and person, whose services are value priced.

I cannot say enough about my experience with Ballad's Photography. Ballad shot both my wedding and engagement photos and they are priceless memories that I will cherish forever. Ballad has this ease about her when she is shooting that made my husband and I feel comfortable, stress free and valued. She is efficient, professional, prompt and most of all flexible. I gave Ballad very little direction in terms of the type of pictures or settings I wanted and despite my vagueness, she completely nailed my vision and exceeded all of my expectations. I cannot tell you how many of my friends and coworkers have come up to me to comment about how beautiful the photos are after seeing them on Facebook. I am forever grateful to Ballad for perfectly capturing the best day of my life. In fact, Ballad was so great that I have already referred her to some of my closest friends and they are now using her as their wedding/engagement photographer! If that doesn't say it, I don't know what else will?

One of our friends had Ballad as their photographer for their wedding and I absolutely loved her photographs and the style of Ballad's work. When we were offered a chance to get our engagement photos done with her I immediately took the opportunity! Through the process of wedding planning I contacted Ballad several times to discuss the wedding timeline and always asked her a million questions and every time she was polite and SO helpful!!! On the day of the wedding I was a little stressed but Ballad and her crew came in and we had a ton of fun taking pictures. The pictures came out BEAUTIFUL (can't stress this enough!) and we were very pleased with the service. Ballad is a great photographer to have on your wedding day. So helpful, open and fun, and really has a special
