Portland, Oregon Couples PhotographyRead More
Brandon and Taylor are easy-going, carefree, lovers of nature who wanted their Hood River Engagement session to reflect their laid back spirit. Brandon, from Hood River, Oregon knew they’d want photos in Hood River and while they were visiting their wedding venue fell in love with the view of Mt. Hood and opted to have their engagement photos taken there.
I love nothing more than connecting with others and documenting their joy and love. This session was particular special and I could feel how much the pair love one another.
A beautiful Spring Hood River engagement photography session, views of Mt. Hood, sunset, and two awesome humans…enjoy the photos from this Columbia River Gorge engagement session!Read More
Cannon Beach is a special place. I’ll never forget the first time I kicked off my sandals and walked along the beach taking in the beautiful Oregon coast only to find myself mesmerized by watching the sun slowly disappear behind Haystack rock amongst a glory of blush pinks and Easter egg blues.
And even after countless visits to the Oregon coast, the beauty of Cannon Beach still amazes and inspires me. As a wedding and engagement photographer based in Portland, Oregon, Cannon beach is at the top of my list of favorite places to photograph couples and families.
Mitch and Caitlin share my affinity for the Cannon Beach, and it is a meaningful place for them. Mitch is in love with Caitlin, knew he wanted to marry her, and wanted the proposal to be intimate, romantic and documented so that he and Caitlin would always have photos to look back upon and relive the magical moment.Read More
I absolutely love intimate weddings and elopements. There is a sweetness inherent to the day and a flexibility that the couple has, and in my beautiful state of Oregon, there are no shortage of beautiful places to escape and get married!
Shelby and Nash were committed to one another and knew that they wanted to get married amongst the beautiful landscape that is the Hoyt Arboretum. If you hike into Hoyt Arboretum a bit, a wonderful spot to elope is the Redwood deck that is private and nestled amongst redwoods and sequoias. The location is serene and as you settle your gaze on the sun-dappled trees there is a sense of magic that envelops you.
The intimate ceremony was amongst close family and the couple’s mutual best friend officiated. The day was a joyous occasion and the Hoyt Arboretum elopement made beautiful sense for this lovely couple.
I hope your enjoy the photos!
On a sunny late summer day, Kelsie & John said "I do" in beautiful Boise, Idaho. Kelsie grew up in Boise and they wanted a place where their family and friends could travel and meet in the middle. The couple exchanged their vows at the Julia Davis Rose Garden amongst bright and colorful flowers, and that end of summer light. This Boise, Idaho Wedding was nothing short of magical, as guests joined the happy couple at the Linen Building for dinner and dancing. We captured a few final photos of the Kelsie & John as the sun set on their first day as husband and wife, in the warm Boise, Idaho glow. It was such a treat to capture this beautiful Boise, Idaho Wedding. Congrats to Kelsie & John!Read More
Ashley and Brian knew they wanted an intimate day among close friends and family that would be simple, casual, and relaxed. They found the perfect venue in Hood River along the Columbia River Gorge to make their dream day a reality.

Congrats to the married couple!Read More
Surrounded by close friends and family on a beautiful day in the PNW, Suvi and Jeanot celebrated their love in a quiet and simple way incorporating things that they love. There was her love of dance, his love of music, their heritages, but most importantly their commitment to one another. I very much enjoyed documenting this lovely wedding.Read More
Shay was surprised with Chris proposed to her over a year ago but then again she knew that they would one day get married. In fact, Shay shared with us that she told him so before their first date!
For their wedding, they just wanted everyone to have fun and the best way they could think to do this was to not tell their guests they were getting married. Everyone would be invited to a summer camp for a weekend in Oregon full of games, fires, and camp activities. So for a year Shay and Chris kept their engagement secret, welcomed a baby boy to the world, and planned their low key wedding. On wedding day the guests knew something was going on, but the rumor was Chris was going to propose once Shay returned from picking up a close friend at the airport. Really, Shay was secretly getting ready in an employee only room at the camp.Read More

Adam and Martiza, two graduate students completing their degrees in Arizona and Sonora. México respectively, met through school and fell for each other. They enjoyed a long-distance relationship before becoming engaged and opted to celebrate amongst close friends and family in Adam's home state of Oregon. We first connected with the couple via Google Hangout and even with the faulty connection both Martiza's natural exuberance and Adam's adoration for his partner came through. We hope you enjoy this wedding that took place at one of our favorite Willamette Valley Vineyards-Zenith Vineyard-as much as we did. Congratulations and cheers to Martiza and Adam!Read More

This rainbow wedding is one of the most unique celebrations we have photographed over past year! Chris and Chalaina designed the wedding of their dreams and it was completely authentic and genuine to them as a couple. They embraced the freedom to have the exact day that they wanted, and shared it with their closest family and friends. The rainbow themed wedding was complete with rainbow decor, air plant centerpieces, rainbow cake, and even bubbles!
The couple walked down the aisle together, acknowledging their commitment as equal partners. One of their close friends officiated the ceremony, as Chris & Chalaina exchanged their vows under a romantic gazebo at Portland's Victorian Belle, a gorgeous historic mansion built in 1885. The house is an historic landmark and features beautiful gardens, string lights, intricate stained glass windows, various antiques, and rare treasures. It's a stunning Portland wedding venue!
We were honored to document such a special and authentic occasion! We were also thrilled to have it featured on Rock n Roll Bride!
We hope you enjoy this wedding just as much as we did - congrats to Chris & ChalainaRead More
Fall in the pacific northwest is truly breathtaking. You can get lost in a sea of vivid autumn colors, walk on crisp, just-fallen leaves, and take in the sights, sounds, and smells all around you. If you love to hike and spend time outdoors (which feels like it's pretty much a requirement of PNW living), the Columbia River Gorge is a treasure this time of year. Every trail showcases the changing seasons and gives you a chance to connect with nature around you. It's an especially perfect time of year for a Columbia River Gorge Engagement Session!Read More
I looked to my left and right and for the millionth time thought how very lucky I am. All around me was infinite natural beauty. In one direction the forest green trees of the PNW appeared never ending and to the other direction the beauty of the Columbia River delighted me as it always does. But the stand out of the day wasn't the picturesque Pacific Northwest vistas, it was the two awesome folks that I had hiked with to a spot that was in a literal sense off the path. Megan and Conrad, on a beautiful fall day led me to this spot, just off a trail in Wind Mountain and told me about themselves and their engagement. All the while I could see that the two were so beautifully in love. It was such a joy to document their engagement that I was reminded once more that photography is such an adventure, and a true joy. I hope you enjoy this Wind Mountain Columbia River Gorge Engagement Session!Read More
As Portland, Oregon wedding photographers, it's always an honor when we are asked to travel and document someone's special day. We love to visit different places, and we always have so much fun together on trips and adventures. When Hannah & Jake reached out to us and shared their vision of an intimate, outdoor wedding at a rustic 1910 farmhouse in Eagle, Idaho, just a short drive outside of Boise, we knew their late summer wedding would be the nothing short of magical. And we were right!
As Portland, Oregon wedding photographers, Angelina and I often reflect that connecting with others and documenting something so special is immensely rewarding. We love not only the photography aspect, but the opportunity it gives us to meet and get to know so many different people.
All of the weddings we are part of are special to us, but we have especially fond memories of Charlotte and Brad's wedding. It was one the first weddings we documented together and it was the most intimate of ceremonies — a Bridal Veil Falls Elopement! We all hiked together to the beautiful Bridal Veil Waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge, documented the special elopement, served as witnesses, and then had an awesome time taking photos after. It was such a wonderful day and we loved getting to know Charlotte and Brad, and their sweet rescue dog Riley, who they brought along to be part of their wedding day.Read More
Gregg and Kayla met about 5 years ago and as they started dating, their friends and family knew there was something special about the connection between them. They are comfortable and at ease with each other, and you can just see the spark when they look at each other. They make each other laugh, share inside jokes and banter, and have a wonderful group of family and friends who support them. Throughout the day we heard countless stories of the different ways they are perfect together.Read More
When Abbey and Kenny reached out to us about their vision for a small beach wedding with their closest family and friends, we were thrilled to be part of their day and get to know them as a couple. They both have a love for adventure and the outdoors, and wanted their wedding to be a reflection of what made their relationship so special. They picked a beautiful spot in Astoria, Oregon and the day turned out perfectly - warm summer sunshine, salty ocean breeze, loving friends and family in attendance, and so many picturesque places to document their love. Enjoy this beautiful Oregon coast wedding!Read More
Greg knew wanted to marry Julia and he also knew he wanted the moment he asked her to be his wife to be documented as it would be a moment he would want to share with others and look back upon. He connected with us several months ago to see if we would be available to capture this special moment in Cannon Beach, Oregon. Not only did the proposal sound romantic, but we also adore the Oregon coast and so there was no hesitation—yes we were available!Read More
