Adventure Wedding and Elopement Photographer 
based in Portland, Oregon.

welcome

I had so much fun meeting up with Tyler and Todd on their road trip down the coast in their incredible camper with their two pups, Charlie and Eddie. These four have been on the road for two months now and started in B.C. Canada, and made their way down the PNW coast and are on their way to California! We shot along Highway 101 at Devils Punchbowl and Fort Stevens Campground. We had the most magical sunset and may have had to help some drunk folks on the beach get their trunk out of a sand dune! We ate lots of food and watched movies on their projector… yes, they have a projector in their camper and it’s amazing!

Tyler and Todd, thank you so much for letting me document your family and camping adventures. I had such a blast spending the week with you and getting to know you two. I left feeling so creatively inspired!

Until we meet again, safe travels!

It’s always a pleasure photographing Michael and Matt. We spent the afternoon under the St. Johns Bridge at Cathedral Park, Portland Oregon. I snapped a few shots of them before the sun went down across the river. We are trying to embrace fall in Portland as much as possible before it gets freezing and rains every day!

I first met Chas back in May when we both helped with a destination wedding. I was immediately amazed by her floral work and knew that I wanted to add her to my preferred vendor list… Luckily enough, I found out that she was also based in Portland, Oregon! Not long after moving and settled in, Chasity took me out for breakfast and gave me all advice and recommendations. We collaborated on another couple session and immediately clicked! Last week, I luckily had the opportunity to photograph her and her husband, Tyler during this exciting milestone in their life. They are due in just one short month! Chas, you have been such a wonderful friend to me and I hope you love these images just as much as I loved documenting them for you guys. You guys are incredible people!

A chilly evening on the Oregon Coast with the sweetest couple who spontaneously drove up to Hug Point for an anniversary session. We ran through the water as the tides came in, attempted to build a bonfire and then took over another groups after they left. We sat and made s’mores while the sunset and the stars slowly appeared above. We talked about the photography community and all the wonderful joys of this life. Theresa & Simon car camped on the coast after their session. This was such a perfect day.
