about us I have been running my own photography business for 10 years. Because of this, I am extremely experienced and am very adaptable to different circumstances. I have seen it all-from harsh daylight to dim-lit reception venues, and am comfortable working with any lighting situation. I am very involved with my clients and am always available via text or email to answer any questions or give advice. Although I always give direction when shooting, I also love to get my clients into a more natural zone while shooting, in which they can be themselves and have fun. However, I will make sure you have direction and don't just expect my clients to know exactly what to do in front of the camera. I am very client-driven and want to make sure all of my clients have everything they need and feel taken care of and safe on the wedding day. I tend to have a low-key vibe and like to make my clients feel relaxed rather than rushed or stressed. There's nothing I haven't seen or can't handle and you are safe with me!
our approach / working with us Being the daughter of a photographer, I learned to operate a camera when I was 12 years old by following my dad around at weddings, taking candid photos of the bride, groom, and guests. This candid style of photography has transferred over to my current style, thus creating the very natural style you see on my website. I started my own business at 19 and have been shooting weddings full-time since 21. I would like to talk a bit about my editing style. I spend a great deal of time editing my images and have perfected my style over my 9 years of business. I love to apply color theory to my editing and tend more toward monochromatic or analogous color schemes. While I keep many consistencies in my editing techniques, I am also unafraid to play around a little with color. I don't just apply the exact same filter to all my images and call it good. Every wedding is different and that means different colors will need to pop while others are subdued. I take great care in making sure the colors of every wedding are cohesive and have a nice flow, even throughout different venues and lighting situations. Through the application of color theory, I treat my images like paintings or works of art. I am very involved with all of my portrait sessions and weddings. I care deeply for every one of my clients, and look at every wedding like a piece of art. I focus on capturing personal moments and the general ambiance of the day, in order to tell a story and truly invoke the emotion that the bride and groom felt on their special day. I am so happy I get to do what I love for a living.
why we love weddings Real human interaction. I love seeing people respond to such an emotional day, watching the dynamic unfold, and being aware of the overall vibes in order to put together a true story of the day through both my clients eyes, as well as their friends/family.
our travel policy Anything 2 hours outside Portland will have a travel fee starting at $50 to cover gas. If I am flying, I ask that my plane ticket, car rental/Uber, and hotel fees are covered. I am very flexible with travel because I love going to new places. For international travel, I often offer trade.
