I met up with these two on a day when Portland was grey, dark and clouded in mist, but when we drove out to the gorge the clouds parted and the sun was far too bright for us to begin the shoot. We detoured to a local brewery and sipped beer while we waited for the sun to go down a bit. When we arrived to Government Cove the lighting was literally perfect. The mist still covered some of the mountains and also created a beautiful filter for the setting sun.Read More
I had just flown into Morocco only one hour before meeting Michelle and Jonas. I was filthy and completely jetlagged, and they just looked perfectly sunkissed and relaxed. As soon as I saw them I knew that I wanted to ask to have a mini-session, but I also didn't want to seem completely crazy! I went for it anyway, and even though they were literally checking out (like bags packed out the door kinda thing) they said yes and we spent about half an hour just roaming around our stunning riad taking snaps.Read More
I had the incredible honor of photographing my cousin and her beau while in South Florida. We took to the beach on a cold and windy day, and what resulted was magic.Read More
A mix of industrial SE Portland plus the waterfront makes for the cutest engagement session.Read More
A magical engagement session at Cape Kiwanda on the Oregon Coast (when the pedestal rock still existed).Read More
Days like these are what keep me motivated.
Going on an adventure with two people in love and exploring a small part of the epic landscape the Pacific Northwest provides.
Fresh air, mountain climbs and just the right amount of cliff-edge danger.
The freedom to explore births the best possible photographs, plus these two adventurers now feel like good friends.
Oh man.. these two.. yellow skirt, perfect light and so much love. How beautiful is Cistus Nursery on top of everything else!? Needless to say, I'm stoked to photograph their wedding in a few months.
Ladies and gentleman.. Bridget and Peter.
The more I photograph people in and around their home, the more I'm inclined to continue to do so. I truly believe people are the most at ease with a camera in front of them while in a place that's so familiar.
Naomi and Gabe's NW Portland abode and surrounding streets served as an adorable backdrop for their six-month-anniversary love shoot. I was charmed by Naomi's festive green dress and their towering Christmas tree. They felt perfectly on theme with a December photo session.
So here they are looking completely in love in the places they most enjoy. Happy holidays, folks!
This gorgeous couple booked me to take their engagement photos while vacationing in Portland. Their request was that we take a walking tour of downtown and visit a few fun locations in the city. They were staying at The Ace Hotel, which is one of my favorite places to snap photographs, so it seemed fitting that we start there.
Here is our day together as it unfolded. They were an absolute delight to spend time with, and I hope that I get to see them again in the future.
A big thanks to The Good Mod, Powell's, The Act Hotel and Everyday Music for allowing us to take photos in their space.
A sweet engagement session out on Sauvie Island.
