Hey, I’m AV


Thanks for finding me! I’m an events and portrait digital photographer who specializes in all things modern.

When I'm not behind the lens, I can be found working on the next graphic design project at Reformd or out adventuring with my two tiny kids and husband Roman (who also photographs with me occasionally). We love to travel all over, backpack and camp in the outdoors, and we also enjoy exploring our urban environment on foot (or via bike!). I also somehow find time to stay active in my community and volunteer with local organizations (Pike Place Market Foundation being one of my favorites). Only one life to live, right?

I'm currently available for shoots in the greater Seattle area and at least once yearly back in NYC. Like pretty much of 99% of photographers, I LOVE TO AND WILL TRAVEL for shoots.

And yes, my last name is really Goodsell. A and V are my first two initials.

Why work with me?

You want someone to make you feel like you’re not getting photographed at all. Hell, you might not even like having your photo taken (like me!). If you like to go on a little adventure and/or just be present in your own day while /I tag along with my cameras, then we’re a match! If you’re looking for a photographer who knows all the behind-the-scenes for events and can make you forget I’m there for a bit while you enjoy your event with your friends and family.

This was my first time experiencing professional photography. Av did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable and relaxed during our time with her. Everything came out perfect and can’t say enough about her professionalism and time she gave to us. Again thank you so much!
