SARAH GARAT // CLASS OF 2019
"Thank you so much Ariella for the wonderful photos! I had an awesome time shooting with you and you made the whole experience so much fun. I was unsure going in because I am terrible at posing, but you helped naturally coach me to be myself and connect authentically with the camera. And the video clips that you included...wow do I love those! I will cherish these photos of my senior year for many to come and will be recommending you to everyone I talk to!"
"Ariella was a dream come true. I knew that I wanted her to take my senior photos the moment I found her instagram. Her photos are incredibly bold, bright, and full of energy. I cannot say enough amazing things about her. I was extremely nervous about my session, and Ariella made sure that I felt confident and comfortable about everything. She helped me so much with my posing and also made sure that my hair wasn’t crazy which I really appreciated. I would say that my favorite part of the session was just how much fun we had! I especially enjoyed when we were shooting on the bridge because we just laughed a lot, and I really felt a friendship spark then and there. She truly is a magnificent photographer and human being, inside and out. She is able to capture both the beautiful scenery and the personality of everyone she takes photos of. She truly has an incredible gift that I was extremely blessed to witness. She captures the beauty, life, and uniqueness. Her photos have a spark unlike any other photos I’ve seen. Her photos are so special, and I will cherish them forever. I would recommend her to ALL my friends! She made me feel extremely confident in myself, and that really shined through in the photos. I am so thankful for her. I can’t wait to work with her again!"

KATIE // ACTOR HEADSHOTS
"Something that's special about headshots versus regular photography is that the photos must capture not only you looking great, but must encapsulate your personality and communicate it to others. If you get only 2-5 minutes with a casting director, you need every aspect of what you bring to that audition to help them get to know you and remember you...I found Ariella through Instagram. I was searching under hashtags like: #seattleheadshots, #seattleheadshotphotographers, and the like for several days when I came across one of her photos. I immediately looked up her IG and website portfolio, and knew she had the look I was going for. Her pictures were not only beautifully focused and lit to capture each model's natural beauty, but she really knew how to make the photos feel, warm, and personal, and inviting. It was the best of both worlds: inner and outer beauty...Ariella was an expert at capturing the lighting and colors of the space she shoots in. I've never had such an easy, relaxing, or fun experience taking photos ..."
"Ariella has a talent way beyond her years! She captured the beauty we see everyday in our daughter and now we can share that with the world! (My favorite part was) Watching my daughter gain confidence as the shoot went along. Julia got to be a princess for the day! Ariella is consistently wonderful in her demeanor and also in the beautiful quality images she produces! Ariella is the real deal!!!!"
