My Story

floydeen apodaca

Hello, my name is Floydeen. Yes, I know a super weird name, right?

And being the only Floydeen growing up, you could imagine how fun that was in grade school.

Later I came to realize my name was as unique and different as I am.

I am from Northern CA, and when I was 17, took a heavy interest in photography, but didn't jump in professionally until I was 23, And I haven't looked back.

I married my highschool sweet heart, and became a mom soon after.

Becoming a mother so young necessitated me to prioritize things in my life sooner and inspired me to start by picking up my first nice camera.

I am a very sentimental person and I feel like its best to be a sentimental person in this industry because when you hire someone who's sentimental, you are truly getting a person who's capturing your story with their HEART.

I have specialized in wedding photography when I moved to Washington in 2013. The brides instantly gravitated towards me, and I've had some of the best experiences because of it.

Before that, I was a family photographer, so I feel like I specialize in both.

Working with me, you will get a fun laid-back energy during your session or special day. As well as easygoing, I'm also very meticulous about my craft. So with that fun energy, you'll have professionalism, which is having the best of both worlds!

I'd love to get to know you further. Let's schedule a phone call or get some coffee and discuss your event!

If you are an out of state/country inquiry, let's facetime. I believe connections are essential before booking any vendor for any occasion. Chemistry is so important come the day of session or wedding day.

Let's chat and make some memories!
