I'm focused on creating relationships with my couples. I care so much about what your day feels like and most of all, I want to experience all of these amazing feelings with you because that's what helps me tell your story the best way possible. I'm here for the long haul and want to make sure I photograph all of those in-between moments that you will cherish forever. I'm not a vendor and you're certainly not just a client. I want to be friends and create a meaningful friendship. Let's do this thing!

my approach

who i am

I am an intimate wedding and elopement photographer based in Portland, Oregon. I love to travel and experience new places. Let's go somewhere beautiful and document your story. Photographs are so very important and are the only tangible item we have to remind us what moments felt like. I'd say that's pretty special and something worth investing in.

I’m so freaking happy that you’re here. Whether it be by chance or fate, you’re here now so let’s be friends. This corner on the internet is my space to be creative, meet new folks and share all of the beautiful stories I’ve had the opportunity to document. When I’m not photographing, you could typically find me hiking somewhere in the outdoors or hanging out with friends or family. Relationships and the outdoors are so important to me, and that’s why I like to incorporate both of them in my work. Reach out and give me all the details. I can't wait to hear from you!
