The gods must have been shining down on Joey and Cheyanne as the weather was perfect and even blessed us with a gorgeous sunset. Luckily we snuck away from the party just in time to catch it.
Wendi and John met me at the Clark County Wedding Expo last year, and we just clicked. It may have been the T-Rex in my booth or just my social awkwardness.
I’ll repeat it, I live in such an amazing and gorgeous place! When Maria contacted me about an engagement session, she mentioned she wanted a location that encapsulated the Pacific Northwest. She and Spencer were having their wedding in New Mexico, so having a stark contrast for their engagement session was essential to her. I gave them a map with an “X” marking the … Read More A Fall Sunset Engagement Session in the Columbia Gorge | Maria and Spencer
Kristen and Jason’s wedding at Trinity Pines Ranch in La Center, WA.
Come for the gorgeousness, stay for the epic garter retrieval.
The only conversations between Taylor and I were via Email, we had to keep it hush hush as this was a surprise. I asked my photographer friend Jen to come along as I knew she liked to hike and I was raised to never hike alone (although, I count my dog as a companion, so sometimes it’s just us). We met up in Camas … Read More A Proposal in the Gorge | Congratulations Megan and Taylor!
Seriously. These two are AMAZING. The first time I met Stephanie and Ty, we all got up super early and drove out to Cascade Locks to capture a sunrise engagement session at a little hidden island out there. It’s one of many of my secret spots, and I won’t share unless you ask nicely. My team and I arrived at the Aerie out in … Read More Stephanie and Ty’s Gorgeous Summer Wedding at the Aerie.
On a gorgeous private property out in the hills of Oregon City, Lisa and James had a great time with their family and friends that traveled from all over to see them get married. I started with the ladies getting ready back at the house. The room had perfect window lighting to capture all of her dresses detail and plenty of room for the … Read More Lisa and James Get Married!
I love when I get to continuously work with families! I was lucky enough to capture a Christmas session with Sarra and Chris a few years ago, and then family pictures AND their wedding since then. This time however, Sarra’s sister was in town and they wanted family pictures with them and all their cousins. So we went out to Moulton Falls Park on … Read More The Anderson Family
Can you believe that Edie and her husband have been married for 50 years?! This sweet family wanted a quick session out at Klineline park when the whole family was in town. While they originated in Vancouver, WA, they have spread out over the United States but come together now and then. I love working with amazing families like theirs!
Have you heard about the old Witches Castle hidden amongst the trees in Portland? Well, the Walton family and I decided to go and check it out. It turns out; it’s just an old bathroom from the 1930s that fell into disrepair after a storm and the parks department just left it alone. In any case, it makes an excellent spot for family photos! … Read More The Walton Family in Forest Park
It’s summer time, which means more outdoor festivals. And if you couldn’t tell, the craft brewing fests are my favorite. This last weekend I spent some time at the Craft Beer and Wine Fest in downtown Vancouver. It’s different than the Vancouver Brewfest as this has less beer, but adds wineries and distilleries from the area. But I did spend a decent amount of … Read More 2019 Craft Beer and Wine Fest
Being my first “official” destination wedding, I came WAY over prepared. I think I purchased 2 more camera batteries, ANOTHER GoPro, all three of my DSLRs, more batteries for them, and cleared off every single one of my SD cards that I have in my inventory (P.S. that’s alot). I didn’t want anything to go wrong and be stranded out here and not be … Read More Heather and John’s Red Rock Canyon Wedding.
