Photography in the West
location: Portland, OR
willing to travel: Yes
describe your artistic style: I want to capture your wedding in a way that feels candid and has narrative, focusing not only on the milestones but all the details and imperfections in between; the whole story. Emotions and exploration play a large role in my work and I love couples with a strong connection that value going the extra mile to explore somewhere unique, even if it means the dress gets a little dirty. My photography takes me to all sorts of amazing destinations both urban and rural, but weddings that embrace epic nature will always hold a special place in my heart given my love of the great outdoors. My favorite weddings tend to be small but full of the people that matter most.
what inspires you? I'm a huge photography nerd that is obsessed with mid-century modern design, travel, and brunch just to name a few of my favorite things. My husband and I were recently married in Portland and are so grateful to call this city our home. We enjoy camping all over the Pacific Northwest and spending time outside in this magnificent area of the country. When we aren't camping, you will find us enjoying some of Portland's finest microbrews or traveling to places we've never been. I'd love for us to connect over a cup of coffee and hear all about the silly quirks and stories that make your relationship uniquely yours, so let's chat!
what do you love about weddings? I believe that marriage is an adventure for the wild at heart. It is a story worth telling, and your wedding photos should bring back every bit of warmth and magic you felt throughout that special day. My approach to wedding photography is a documentary style that favors candid moments with a bit of fine art portraiture peppered in, and I am committed to listening to and connecting with my couples to create images that are unique and heartfelt. I want to capture your wedding in a way that feels candid and has narrative, focusing not only on the milestones but all the details and imperfections in between; the whole story.
what's your travel policy? Travel makes me feel truly alive and inspired! While I'm based in Portland, I shoot almost half of my weddings in California and beyond. I'll go anywhere in the world for the cost of my airfare and two nights of lodging, so let's go exploring!
