My last name is actually Ter-Saakov but I use “Anna Tee” for business things because no one can spell, say, or remember my actual name.
I love country music and I refuse to be ashamed about it.
My entire family is full of math geniuses (I’m talking parents who read my math textbook for fun) but I seem to have missed out on that gene.
I have the tastebuds of a child and eat the same thing every day because I don’t like any other food. A lot of people think it’s because I don’t try other foods but I do - I just think everything tastes bad, what can I say?
I talk in my sleep.
Hi, I'm Anna!
So that’s me! I live in Seattle, and I photograph weddings and elopements and people in love. I say “live in Seattle” loosely because I actually live in a camper van and spend as much time outside of the city as I possibly can.
I immigrated from Russia to New Jersey at four months old, and all 18 years that I lived in Jersey, I knew that I needed to be somewhere with mountains. In the fall of 2015, I moved to Washington to start school, and lasted two years of switching my major and hating everything I was doing before I dropped out and decided to get serious about photography. Two years later, it’s the best decision I ever made. For my second best decision, I bought an old work van this past fall, and I’ve converted it into my dream home on wheels so that I could travel and take photos all the time. As you can tell, I’ve really leaned into the pnw hippie stereotype over the past few years.
I’d describe my style (in life and in photography) as laid back & go with the flow. I think life is supposed to be fun and exciting, and so many people forget that. What’s money and a fancy job good for if you don’t have anyone to share the love with?
In my photos, I want to capture who you really are - what it means to be you and to be in love.
Being outside is quite literally my only hobby (besides photography of course), so being able to combine the two is a dream come true. Meeting cool people and going to cool places is what I live for, so being able to take my rad couples and meet/take them to locations that are almost as pretty as they are makes me really, really happy. I love this job that I managed to stumble into, and I love being surrounded by love.
The ol’ van
Are you picking up what I’m putting down?
Do we sound like a good fit?
If you’re into having a good time, getting your feet a lil’ dirty, waking up for sunrise, staying up for sunset, and into each other, I think we’ll get along just fine.
