Hi!  I Am A Colorful Portland Wedding Photographer.

I take FUN, candid, VIBRANT, real AF photos 
for HAPPY people in love.

MY PHOTOS ARE FULL OF LAUGHTER, AND TELL STORIES ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU CARE MOST ABOUT.

A little bit quirky, a little bit silly, a whole lot of heart.  Those are the couples I love working with.  Yes, I'll take photos of all the pretty details, but I'm obsessed with finding those little moments of joy being shared by friends and family.  Capturing the unique personality that you and your tribe bring to your event is my most favorite thing to do.  It's how you FELT.

Let's break some rules!  I'm all about finding ways to throw tradition to the wind and make the wedding day as personal and meaningful to you as possible.  I'll be your cheerleader for any crazy idea you have that makes your day YOU!  Want to release butterflies during the ceremony?  Hell yes.  Have a Mezcal toast instead of a champagne toast?   Me too?!   Karaoke instead of first dances?  Yes.  Please.   Fire dancers and aerialists for cocktail hour entertainment?  Call me now.  Let's have some fun!  And of course, if you're into colorful and fun wedding photography, that doesn't hurt either!

Dreaming of a destination wedding?  I'll come with!

Vibrant color is what inspires me most.  I love colorful wedding photography!

Nature inspires me second-most.  You're just as likely to see me relaxing in a hot spring in Eastern Oregon, as you are to see me jetting off to colorful Palm Springs.

I'm pretty down-to-earth and easy going.  No stress, no drama.

"She has some kind of MAGIC ABILITY"

CRYSTAL CAPTURED MORE ABOUT OUR DAY THAN I COULD HAVE IMAGINED POSSIBLE. HER GENTLE SUGGESTIONS WERE BEYOND HELPFUL AND SHE HAS SOME KIND OF MAGIC ABILITY TO BE PRACTICALLY INVISIBLE AND YET PRESENT IN 5 PLACES AT THE SAME TIME! THE COLORS AND EMOTIONS SHE SEES AND PHOTOGRAPHS ARE MY FAVORITE MEMORIES OF OUR WEDDING DAY.
