ALbany Oregon Engagement Photographer-4744 copy

I have photographed weddings where Molly has been a bridesmaid, a maid of honor, a close friend of the couple  – I’ve gotten to know her and her now-fiance, AJ, really well. Spoiler alert – they’re pretty awesome! The first time I met AJ, he gave me a hamburger during a portrait session, instantly making him one of my favorite people. And, it says quite a bit about Molly’s character that she is considered such a close friend to so many wonderful people. Honestly, my summers wouldn’t be quite the same without getting to celebrate at a wedding with Molly & AJ. This year is extra special, because this Fall, they’re getting married! I’m so excited! Here’s a photo from their engagement session last weekend. Can’t wait to share their wedding images!


Cannon Beach is one of the most photographed beaches on the Oregon Coast which is no surprise due to it’s natural Oregon Coast beauty. This small cottage town is recognized by its well-known landmark, the huge iconic monolith Haystack Rock. This igneous rock has an elevation of 235 feet and is protected as a marine sanctuary, Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. With all of this natural beauty it is probably the best location for engagement photos in all of Oregon!

Get in touch with me and I’ll help you plan the perfect engagement session in Cannon Beach, Oregon.

Lan Su Garden Proposal

Matt kept texting me about how anxious he was, and asking if all the people were out yet. I drew him a diagram of exactly where he should stop so I could hide in the bushes and get a good view. I had a second shooter, Cambrae getting them from a different angle just in case. You never know what’s going to happen so its super crucial to have back up! Andrea tried to lead them around the bridge, but Matt convinced her to go to the spot we had planned out. He got down on that good ole knee of his and of course she said yes!

Afterwards we took a stroll around the secluded garden where Matt and Andrea basically just goofed around and enjoyed their newly engaged selves. Congratulations you two! Matt, ya done good! See the entire proposal shoot here.



When the wildflowers are blooming at Rowena Crest in the Columbia Gorge, it is such a gorgeous spot for an engagement session! Andrea Zajonc had so much fun capturing HaLee + Dave’s session there earlier this month! Check out the rest of the photos on her blog!

portland-engagement-photographer All of the nice weather we’ve been having lately has be amazing for engagement portrait season. This engagement session was done in Woodland Washington at the Holland America Bulb Farm, where they are known for their beautiful tulip fields, and nearby along the Columbia River. We couldn’t help ourselves with the lovely light and the tall spring grass growing to get a shot outside of the tulips.

After a romantic early Valentine’s day dinner at Departure, Travis walked his bride to be, Riann, along the waterfront. Little did she know the photographer they just passed “taking pictures of the bridge” was about to become a part of her proposal story.   As soon as I saw Travis go down on one knee I turned my camera towards them and was able to capture some priceless expressions. I moment none of us will soon forget.

After the ring was on her finger, and she knew I was in on it, we spent some more time walking around together taking pictures by the Hawthorne Bridge and the World Trade Center Portland.

I am so excited to be the newest member of Photographers of Portland, being surrounded by so many other great creative photographers is a joy.

Every time I look at this picture of Stacey & Choncy I can’t help but smile, their love and affection for each other is so obvious in this sweet simple image taken at Portland’s Laurelhurst Park. We really lucked out when we went as the day ended up being beautiful and even a bit sunny.  I look forward to sharing images from their wedding soon.
