This is one of my favorite first dances I have ever experienced. After eloping under a Christmas tree Ashley + Caleb played their song on one of their phones and danced. Danced together right in the middle of one of the busiest parts of downtown. People were walking all around, cars flew by, and right when they started dancing it began to rain. They kept dancing and the world around them disappeared. Time stopped, rain drops fell, and they held each other – lost in the moment, lost in each other, lost in their love.

Krystle + Brian have the sort of love that is so evident, so carefree. It was very important to them that we utilized all the variety of scenery that the NW has to offer. So we started the session at The Vista House, explored the dense forests around Larch Mountain, and finished up right before sunset over at Rowena Crest.

Caitlin + Robbie’s wedding included everything that Portlanders love: great food, micro brews, and a ceremony site with sweeping views of downtown PDX. We had a blast adventuring around the area and using urban elements as backdrops for portraits. Portland is full of wonderful colored walls! This one matched their outfit colors perfectly.

Ecola State Park is a very special place for Hannah + Patrick. They frequently hike and camp around the area together and share so many fond memories from their adventures. So this location was the obvious choice for their engagement session!

Liz didn’t want the traditional style headshots for her new business venture (the exact nature of the venture is a secret for now!). We sat down and discussed the vision she had for her business and I designed a shoot that would produce images to come in line with that vision. She wanted something that reflected both her relational personality as well as her urban, modern style. You can check out more from Catalina Jean Photography by clicking here.


Cayla and Nick welcomed little baby Charlie over the summer and they opted for a lifestyle newborn session. Lifestyle photography sessions are focused on capturing the emotion and real connections between couples and their families. They also usually take place at a location that is special to the people involved. This leads to creating something beyond the normal portrait; something that truly captures the story of the most special times in one’s life. Check out more storytelling images over at Catalina Jean Photography’s blog.
