Valerie + Damen’s Intimate Timberline Lodge Winter Wedding

This intimate holiday fireside wedding at Timberline Lodge was the coziest event of the year!  However, before the coziness ensued, we braved the elements for some photos in the winter-wonderland landscape of Mt. Hood. Lucky for me, Valerie and Damen were excited to get outside for photos in the snow, and we tromped around the lodge taking advantage of the contrasting textures and soft light. It was such an honor to be a part of this intimate gathering of friends and family and document the start of this couple’s married life together.

John + Courtney / Maysara Winery Wedding

Maysara Winery may just be our new favorite spot for Oregon weddings. It is by far one of the most unique properties we have photographed. The Momtazi family has built an amazing structure and are the perfect hosts for some amazing events. We were so honored to photograph John and Courtney’s wedding there. They are such a caring, laid-back couple. We had a great time exploring the winery with them and documenting their celebration. To top it off, we had an exceptional vendor team for this one!

Lauren + Andrew / Bend, Oregon, Engagement

Spring delivered a fresh blanket of snow for this session with Lauren & Andrew at Mt. Bachelor. Which is awesome, because that is the one request they had for this shoot (thank-you Mother Nature)! We also explored Bend’s Shevlin Park underneath the towering pines and enjoyed an awesome afternoon in the beauty of Central Oregon.

Katherine + Jake / Silcox Hut, Mt. Hood, Wedding

Katherine & Jake met on the ski team while attending university in Virginia.  Well, technically, Katherine was on the ski team & Jake was on the snowboard team. Perhaps there was a bit of the “opposites-attract” rule in effect? When it came time to plan their wedding, they knew they wanted a destination event where they could not only celebrate with their family & friends, but also spend time riding the mountain with them as well. Mt. Hood and the Silcox Hut were a perfect choice.

It was refreshing to see the excitement & passion that this couple holds for each other and the sport that brought them together. We local Northwesterners are quick to bemoan the absence of snow during a lackluster winter like this one. Being around Katherine, Jake, and their families reminded me that it’s not the conditions that matter so much as the enjoyment you get from the activity and those that you share it with. Thanks for the reminder you two, and thank for choosing me to document this time in your lives!

Kim + Luke / Oneonta Gorge Engagement Session

I absolutely love it when couples are up for mixing a little adventure into their shoot! Kim & Luke had scoped out Oneonta Gorge as the location for their engagement session, which is always worth a visit. After shooting at the gorge and nearby tunnel, I suggested a nearby spot that I wanted to explore but didn’t have much experience with. These two were totally up for the adventure, and it turned out beautifully! At the end of our time at Oneonta the day turned dark & dreary, which had me a bit worried on the way to our next spot. Lucky for us, the sky parted on the horizon just before sunset and gave us some brilliant light. After this adventure, I’m super excited to document them as they embark on their next one this Summer!

Nicole + Ian / Downtown Portland Wedding

Hailing from our sister city on the eastern seaboard, Nicole & Ian planned an intimate destination wedding in downtown Portland. These Brooklynites said their vows on the roof-top deck at Ecotrust in front of a small gathering of family & friends. Before their ceremony, we took a stroll through downtown visiting a few well-known landmarks & discovering others with a little ice-cream break in between. Their casual style and relaxed nature made for an ultra-fun shoot and a fantastic wedding!

Kelsey + Tyler / Oregon Farm Wedding

With an orchard ceremony, a beautifully slow sunset, and dancing into the twilight & under the stars, Kelsey & Tyler’s wedding was the epitome of a mid-summer Oregon celebration. The wedding took place at a private family home just outside Portland, with a perfect balance of country close to the city. A big thanks to Roger Porter for shooting with me.

Erin + Brian / Crag Rats Hut Wedding

The Crag Rats Hut is a wonderful place for an intimate wedding in Hood River, if you don’t mind being surrounded by orchards with an amazing view.  On one of the hottest days of the year, Erin & Brian celebrated with their friends and family and danced the night away as the sun slowly sank behind Mt. Hood.
