With the success of last year’s pumpkin mini sessions, we are partnering up with Al’s Garden Center again to continue the tradition. One session will be on October 12th at the Al’s Garden Center in Sherwood. The other session will be on […]

Sunflowers & a ski resort gave this summertime wedding on Mt. Hood lots of charm. I love Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, and have had the pleasure of photographing quite a few weddings there. Although it’s a decent size resort and hotel, weddings always feel so intimate there. Maybe it’s because you get the whole entire […]

I have wanted to photograph a wedding at this incredible venue for years.  Therefore, when this couple told me they planned to get married at Deepwood Estate, I was ecstatic!  It is now called Deepwood Museum & Gardens, and it is located in Salem, just a short drive from Portland.  It was built in 1894 […]

I am so excited to announce that I am looking for an intern to join me for Fall/Winter, and I am now accepting applications!

I am located in […]

This wedding ceremony aboard the Crystal Dolphin was a highlight of my year! The Crystal Dolphin is part of The Portland Spirit fleet, which everyone in Portland should be familiar with! The Portland Spirit is the sightseeing/brunch/dinner/sunset/party/dance cruise ship that travels up and down the Willamette year round! I’m actually surprised I’ve lived here for […]

I adored this Brush Prairie backyard wedding! I mean, if you have access to a beautiful piece of private property, why NOT have a backyard wedding?! Plus, this wedding included purple as a main color, and we should all know that purple is my favorite color! Brush Prairie Backyard Wedding I met this fun couple […]

This intimate Secret Garden wedding was so lovely. Did you know that Portland has a Secret Garden? It does! And it’s located in Washington Park… tucked away next to The International Test Rose Garden. But shhhhh…. don’t let the secret out! It’s a large grassy area surrounded by trees. There are 3 fairly hidden paths […]

Before I get started on how lovely this Caswell Sculpture Garden wedding was, let me clarify that this was actually a vow renewal. Whaaaat?! I know, right?! In fact, the couple have been together for 20 years. Whaaaat?! I know, right?! Are they even old enough for that to be true?! Haha. They eloped in […]

Last weekend I photographed a lovely Raven’s Nest Wedding at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood. It was a gorgeous sunny and warm day, but just because it’s June doesn’t mean Summer! Just a couple of days ago it snowed at Timberline. What?! I have so enjoyed working with this adorable couple, and I’m excited to […]

This wedding at The Laurelhurst Club was very romantic. If you’ve ever spent much time in Portland, you’ve most likely taken a stroll around Laurelhurst Park. It’s one of the prettiest parks in the city. There are majestic tall evergreens and even a large duck pond. The backdrop makes for beautiful portraits. What most people […]
