Lyndee + Gordon wanted one thing, and one thing only. To walk around Portland, the day after their wedding, for some very Portland photographs.Read More
What’s better than waking up, slightly hungover from your wedding the night before? Waking up, getting dressed, and meeting your photographer under a cold rain in British Columbia. All without a stop at Tim Hortons, to boot.Read More
Lauren + Kurt really didn’t want to “trash” the dress so to speak, so we found the least likely spot to trash it – the coast (yeah, right). The Summer sun provided an amazing light show and became the primary element of the shoot – that and the beautiful surroundings.Read More
Lauren + Kurt mentioned they planned on a small wedding at the base of Multnomah Falls in Oregon. Of course, this being July I knew it would be FULL of tourists flocking to see the huge waterfall – and the challenges would be high to get good images. I accepted the shoot and it turned out to be an awesome experience. Their families were warm and welcoming, and the area was so beautiful!Read More
I always enjoy a good destination shoot, especially when the wedding is in the Florida Keys in October. Pamela + Dave were married at Pierre’s Restaurant in Islamorada, FL with their friends and family. I loved hanging out with their ‘New Yoaka’ family and getting to know them. We spend the entire next day on an epic roadtrip down US 1 to Key West where we thoroughly trashed that dress!Read More
I met Shannon + Levi at an old farmhouse on Sauvie Island. It was a beautiful fall day and we had an awesome time. I always love it when an engagement session starts with great light, a wonderful couple, and ends with an ice cold pint of some of Oregon’s finest microbrew. We journeyed around Sauvie Island, eventually ending at a pumpkin patch and aCaptured by Porches beer truck. I call it fate.Read More
Lindsay + Tim were married at one of my favorite venues – Bridalveil Lakes. This is a tucked away wilderness spot in the Columbia Gorge.
The light filtered through the towering trees onto their ceremony spot – which they arrived at and departed from in canoes. It was a truly spectacular day.Read More
No one really thinks of an old building being an ideal wedding venue. But, once I met Shelly + Bart and they explained their idea, it sounded amazing.
The venue (was NOT an old building, actually) was a fully renovated downtown Seattle loft with a wonderful crew and even better sunset.Read More
Nothing beats an amazing couple with beautiful light on the Oregon Coast. This weekend, Sallie + Sophon joined me for an unforgettable Trash the Dress session in Cannon Beach, Oregon.
We ended up with some amazing light and some incredible photographs.Read More
I love shooting weddings. I also really like photographing nature. So, when these two things come together, I am, naturally (pun intended) really excited to be a part of it all!
Dormae + Brian King were married last Friday at the amazing Bridalveil Lakes deep in the Columbia Gorge. I’ll be honest, as I was driving to the venue and the road got narrower, and narrower, and soon became dirt, I thought my GPS was conspiring against me. You know the story – I’d be featured on Dateline – wedding photographer goes missing.Read More
I flew into Detroit this past weekend, to be a part of Kara + Matt’s wedding in Ann Arbor. They were married in the presence of an amazing family and group of friends at the beautiful Misty Farm. Their wedding was so perfect! From the colors, and the weather to the fireworks and the amazing vegan dinner!Read More
I really enjoy shooting destination weddings, as they are always an adventure. But, when a wedding turns into an 18 hour jeep roadtrip into British Columbia – through some amazing scenery – the adventure is more of an escape.Read More
Fletcher Beach is probably my favorite place in Florida to shoot. So when I heard my clients Danielle + Mike were to be married on that very strip of sand, I was ecstatic. It would be my first wedding shoot there, among the limestone formations.Read More
One of my favorite things about the Caribbean, are the rich colors and textures that pepper the architecture. The storms and relentless sun take their toll on the colors of the islands…but this can be a photographer’s paradise.Read More
Shannon + Miguel were such a fun couple to work with! Not only was their Melbourne, FL engagement session super fun, but we also ended our Trash The Dress shoot in a creek full of gators (which we only found out about later).Read More
Rain on a wedding day can be a real bummer sometimes, but that was not the case for Joanne + Tim’s wedding at the Grotto in Portland, Oregon. While originally scheduled to take place in the outdoor area, a light winter drizzle brought us into the massive Catholic church instead.Read More
Oregon doesn’t get the recognition it deserves when it comes to the beautiful golf courses in this state. And when combined with a beautiful wedding and a great couple, well the stars just align.
Molly + Chris had a simple, elegant, and beautiful wedding at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club located in Portland, Oregon.Read More
Christina + Matt had an amazing wedding at Hawk’s View Cellars in Sellwood, Oregon. This state is amazing for weddings, as it has so many amazing and unique places to be married. From the forests of Mt. Hood, the Redwoods down South, and of course the amazing coast. But sometimes we overlook the simple beauty of a working vineyard.Read More
If you had to think about two things that do not belong together, a pristine white bridal dress and a greasy, rusty junkyard are probably on that scale.
Jennifer and I decided early on that we really wanted to push the boundaries, and do a hardcore trash the dress session. So we headed to the Pick and Pull lot in Boring, Oregon. You should have seen the look on the guys’ faces when I went in to ask permission.Read More
