Well Colorado-- we sure did try to plan for some nice weather, but snow greeted me when I landed, well played Denver. We waited for the snow to pass, then drove a few hours to spend the night in good 'ol Alamosa and then hiked up the sand dunes to create some awesome goodness and it was so worth it.Read More
You may tend to see a pattern I like to follow// meeting new people and capturing just a little piece of their love story along the way.
This time I was in Maui and the couple was Dom & Erik. These two are the perfect example of a couple who embodies who they are, who they want to be, all the while, living in the moment.Read More
yes yes and yes!! this was such a great day and I loved being able to capture all the 'awesomeness' that is these two!
if at any point in your life, you are as happy and as in love as they are--you, my friend, are exactly where you are supposed to be and don't ever let that goRead More
2016....yes, yes, and yessss. I am beyond thankful that I am able to do what I do and be a part of these people's lives.
Captured some of my favorite people both in life, love, and marriage. The pictures below by no means sum up ALL that I have done this year, but I sure tried to get a little bit from a few of my favorites.Read More
Sometimes you meet someone and you just know....yup I'm going to spend my life with this person. In this case-- that is exactly what happened. Kim called me the day after they met and told me how she found the perfect guy and is pretty sure they are going to get married. Two years and one awesome little guy named Brody later and here we are!Read More
This day was a true combination of not only the love they have for each other, but the love their friends have for them. From the DJ, the videographer, and even the tastings of Wailua Shaved Ice// ALL were close friends of the bride and groom.Read More
Let me tell you about these two. Briana & Kristian- you nailed this whole marriage thing!
They went to a courthouse on any other day. Made it official and decided they just wanted to have a big party with family and friends in a barn. Kristian put so much work into the space to make it the perfect venue to celebrate the marriage and he knocked it outta the park. Custom bar with a working front end of a car to frame out the wood and a welded BAR sign overhead. They had not one, BUT two bands who filled the night with unlimited dancing and entertainment. Did I mention everyone wore costumes?! Yes-- these are my kind of people.Read More
When you know the wedding is just going to be amazing even before the day starts. That is exactly what happened on Emma & Evan's wedding day.
I was lucky enough to have met Emma a while back when she just got engaged. All things aligned and I couldn't wait to be a part of this 'awesomeness' known as their wedding.Read More
I just can't enough of the people that have been popping up in my life lately. This lovely lady put together some gorgeous florals for me for a wedding event and I just knew she was a good one. Several months later with baby number 2 on the way- I'd say it was time to document some of what makes her who she is.
This family. All the love. All the time.Read More
Any chance to shoot with one of my favorite humans [Alyssa Burkholder]......I'm in! Normally I meet the couple way before the wedding, but in this case, I met Ashley and Keane the day of and was of course knew I would love them as soon as I met their fur child Doyle. The day provided exactly what we needed, a little sun, a few clouds, and a whole lot of love.
The wedding was on the property where they lived and let me tell you------- anyone would have dreamed of such a venue. Are you thinking Tuscan villa?... because I sure am.Read More
Mike and Mary are getting married!! Ahh that has a good ring to it.
Met these two about a year ago in Portland. Their love is so genuine and real and I can't get enough of the two of them. I am beyond grateful that they are letting me be a part of this journey with them. From the west coast over to the east, I cannot wait to see them tie the knot next year.Read More
There is something to be said for doing exactly what it is I do, being a wedding photographer. We are invited into your most intimate moments of one of the biggest days of your life. I am so honored to have been able to tag along with Kylee and Mike and document their love on this special day. All the feels...all the day long!
Rain in the forecast? Bring it on- we had an absolute blast blending in to the whatever mother nature wanted to throw our way. Take the time to hit play and scroll away to enjoy this amazing day. The venue, flowers, rain, and a little beach action made this day exactly what it was meant to be. Congrats you two. I think you are simply amazing.Read More
These two. I can't even begin.
Let's just say we were making some great things happen and we came across a mini field of morels. Pause photo shoot and cue mushroom picking!
Honestly, the love these two have for each other is so apparent. Every single time he looked at her, she could not hide her smile even if she wanted to.Read More
Jamie Jones and Cassy Berry pulled out the big guns for this workshop. It was everything I needed at this point in my photography life and more! I'd hang with you ladies any day.
There is nothing better than being surrounded by people who have the same passion that you have and pushing one another and learning off of each other and helping yourself in the meant time be the best you can be.Read More
I met Holly about a year ago shooting for a local jewelry company here in Portland. I'm not going to lie she is one of the greatest people EVAA! Her energy for life goes above and beyond the norm. She mentioned a while back that her and Tim were going to eventually get married in the woods and that I would be the one to capture it. Needless to say- I was all over that idea and could not wait!
What a day it was.
Full of love, adventure, and beauty.Read More
Let me tell ya about these two.
They met when they were 14, lost touch until they reconnected at 22.
They realized the love they had for each other and didn't want to let go.
"He took me to one of my favorite nature places and got down on one knee and asked me if I wanted to have more adventures with him and I said yes"Read More
