Fall photos at Al’s Garden Center are here again! Can you believe it’s already that time of year? 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 […]

I finally had a chance to shoot a Bridal Veil Lakes wedding, and it was all I had ever dreamt of, and more! As a devon wedding photographer, I didn’t disappoint them with how the pictures turned up. This is hands down my all time favorite wedding venue in Oregon. It. Is. Gorgeous. Magical. A […]

I love this place! This wedding at Lost Lake Resort & Campground was the most laid back, fun and colorful wedding of the year! I’ve been visiting Lost Lake ever since I first moved to Oregon in 2012. Day trips up there is one of my favorite summertime activities. So, I was more than thrilled […]

This wedding at Wind Mountain Ranch was an extra special occasion! When I moved to Portland, the groom had two open rooms in his home that my friend and I rented. We lived there for an entire year. We were there when he got back from his very first date with his now bride. He […]

Wow.  Wow wow wow.   This couple wanted amazing images of their Latourell Falls elopement, even if that meant jumping in, which we all practically did!   The heavy rains and snowmelt combined with extremely windy conditions. Neither of which are very unusual, but it definitely made the falls unpredictable! You never knew when a bucket-full […]

This wedding at Polaris Hall was so colorful and pretty! Polaris Hall is also a concert venue, and I’ve seen many shows there. Not to mention, this venue is like, less than a mile from my house, so that’s a definite plus! This couple was so adorable. There were so many kids included in the […]

This wedding at Cathedral Park was perfect. This couple lives just down the street from Cathedral Park, so it was only fitting that they chose to get married there as well! I like to joke, “you got married under a bridge?!”, but it’s really no joke how beautiful this place is. It is the most […]

This wedding at Coopers Hall was a blast! Coopers Hall is such a great urban venue right in central SE Portland. We started the day at Hotel Lucia in downtown Portland. We took some portraits around the Park Blocks, and then headed across the river for the festivities! Coopers Hall is a winery and taproom […]

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! This position is primarily administrative and social media marketing focused, but some editing, photography, and on-location assisting may be offered based on need and interest of intern. 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 […]
