Elena and Bre met in Seattle, WA in 2012 and became fast friends. They bonded over their mutual passion for photography, joyful storytelling, their children, and life in general. Elena is a successful family and portrait photographer in Seattle, WA while Bre now lives in Northern California and travels all over the country to photograph weddings and families.

Together, they came up with the idea to share what they love with an intimate group of other photographers. A seedling of an idea quickly turned into something tangible and Blair + Thurston was born. Both Elena and Bre share the philosophy that what you photograph should be what moves you, whether you are shooting for yourself or for clients. Photos do not need perfection, but they need a voice and the love of a photographer behind the camera.

We cannot wait to spend an amazing weekend with you!
