Abernethy Center Portland Wedding – Erica & Ryan

Abernethy Center Portland Wedding – Erica & Ryan

We learned so much getting to know Erica and Ryan through the process of planning and photographing their Abernethy Center Portland wedding. Their kindness completely took us by storm. All throughout COVID, we had the joy of getting to know them over several video meetings. They demonstrated the most incredible patience and adaptability throughout the entire journey of the unknown. The foundation of their relationship is so solid. They knew that their wedding would be an expression of their...

Latourell Falls Engagement Photos – Brendan & Stephanie

Latourell Falls Engagement Photos – Brendan & Stephanie

We got chills when Brendan asked us to capture his secret surprise proposal to his girlfriend Stephanie for their Latourell Falls Engagement Photos. Real proposals are absolutely thrilling. There are so many unknown variables. Nerves are all over the map. The person proposing. The person being proposed to.  Photographers hiding in the bushes while being ever-present and ready to capture every fraction of a second. There is nothing like it.  It's such a rich environment for capturing great...

Iceland Engagement Photo Ideas

Iceland Engagement Photo Ideas

Our adventures exploring Iceland engagement photo ideas opened our eyes to a whole new world of wild landscapes, rich history, and language that makes us want to go back every year and learn more. It's the land of fire and ice. It has one of the most geologically and volcanically active landscapes in the world. Can you believe it, this place has over 100 volcanoes. We have a growing curiosity and much to discover and learn. We can clearly see why the Game of Thrones was filmed here among so...

Moab Elopement – Abby & Bruno

Moab Elopement – Abby & Bruno

Abby and Bruno drove from Virginia to Utah for an epic Moab elopement and a mind-blowing adventure. The first part of their road trip expedition spanned over 5 days and met us in Arches National Park.  We were to meet them early morning at 4:45 am for an intimate sunrise ceremony surrounded by a red-rock wonderland. At that hour it feels like you are on the moon, under an infinite sky with twinkling stars, a gentle breeze, and what felt like loud silence at the bottom of the ocean. Arches is...

Kansas City Elopement – Rebekah & Taylor

Kansas City Elopement – Rebekah & Taylor

Rebekah and Taylor's Kansas City elopement began with lots of zoom calls. We love to ask questions, listen, and get to know people. We are always happy to talk about all of our technical skills and approach to photography, but honestly getting to know our couples is our secret sauce to capturing a great story. When Rebekah and Taylor said they were "looking for artistic photojournalists" and wanted a free-flowing organic experience we knew we were a great fit. When we arrived in Kansas City,...

Oregon Coast Elopement – Crystal & Phillip

Oregon Coast Elopement – Crystal & Phillip

Crystal and Phillips Oregon Coast elopement at Ecola State Park on Indian Beach was a sunny day surrounded by many rainy dark days before and after. Tree and I have been pinching ourselves because somehow "wedding magic" shows up on most of the weddings we've been honored to photograph. Perhaps it's our rule to fully embrace whatever we are given and photograph the light and mood to its fullest however it turns out. Our motto is to love every moment, no matter what! It always works out,...

Alderbrook Elopement – Val & Paul

Valerie and Paul were originally scheduled to have a 200+ guest wedding at Timberline Lodge atop Mt Hood on August 29th, 2020. Timberline is one of our favorite places to photograph weddings but as everyone knows COVID-19 brought the world to a screeching halt!  What to do? Originally Val and Paul were going to cancel everything and put things on an unknown hold. They were not interested in postponing and planning another wedding for next year. So difficult! But, the idea of an Alderbrook...

Maternity Photos – Lisa & Jarred

We feel so lucky to see life evolve with the couples we get to know. From adventurous lifestyle excursions, weddings, maternity photos, and more our passion is to tell stories. Becoming "life photographers" is the best. This past week we were invited by Lisa and Jarred to the Oregon Coast to celebrate their pregnancy by taking their maternity photos. It was so fun to continue photographing their lives after photographing their wedding at Silcox Hut above Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood back in...
