I have always admired the beauty of the Portland LDS Temple so you can imagine my excitement when Anjai and Will asked me to photograph their temple wedding. Anjai and Will exited the temple after their ceremony to an exited crowd of their family and friends who all stuck around for group photos. The temple grounds offer so much variety and wonderful settings for photos- but my favorite was the photos near the reflecting pool.

I love the time I have with the bride and groom right after their first look. Many times this is the only quiet time the bride and groom have together the whole wedding and the joy and excitement they share in these moments is beautiful.

Senior Photos In Lincoln City

Ian wanted to show off a few of his favorite places in his senior photos. We started in the woods around his house and then headed to the beach to finish up. While it was surprisingly warm, it was super foggy which made for some cool effects in his beach senior photos. Ian loves to gather mussels at this beach and even treated me to some amazing hand gathered, home made mussel chowder after his session – how cool is that?!

Weddings at Rogue Farms Jenn wanted to find a reason to wear her beautiful wedding dress more than once. And what better reason than an awesome photo shoot? We started out at Jenn & David’s house to photograph them doing a few everyday things, like hanging out with their dog Otto and watching movies and then turned it into a trash the dress shoot at Rogue Hop Farms. From their living room, to swimming in the river, to the hop rows, Jenn and David absolutely rocked their trash the dress session!


The Millers were all such naturals at being in front of the camera that I couldn’t believe that it had been about 26 years since their last family photo! From their perfectly coordinated outfits, to their genuine smiles and laughter, these four were a blast to photograph. They share a love of wine tasting so they thought it would be fitting to shoot their family photos at a winery! Hawks View Cellars provided a perfect backdrop for their photo session.

Jenn and David had a beautiful wedding at Green Villa Barn. After their adventurous engagement session I knew these two would have an amazing and fun wedding. What I wasn’t prepared for were all the wonderful homemade details that their families worked so hard on. Every little detail was thought out— like this get-away confetti. Doesn’t it look awesome? Head on over to the blog to see more of their beautiful wedding with all its details.

Recently I got to shoot a super cool session for a really fun and adventurous family. They wanted to find out the gender of their new baby in a unique way and decided to have a family ‘paint war’ and find out by the color of paint that squirted out of the bottle’s I had chosen for them. I had so much fun capturing their priceless faces and sharing in their joy as they welcome another boy into the family. Want to see more fun photos from their gender reveal?

A not so secret fact about me….I looove shooting engagement sessions. It gives me a wonderful opportunity to get to know my couples before their wedding and is a great time for just the three of us to interact and learn to work with each other. Breanne and Josh’s Corvallis engagement session was fun, relaxed and totally reflected the two of them. I wonder what secrets she’s telling him in this shot!
