PORTLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I’m a Wedding Photographer based in Portland, Oregon.
With over 13 years of photography experience, I made the decision to settle in Portland nine years ago.
The artistic ambiance, the unmatched beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and the proximity to the ocean drew me here, and it quickly felt like home.
Many often wonder why I chose to specialize in weddings. It’s a unique space where emotions run deep – love, joy, and genuine happiness. It’s a privilege to be able to capture these raw and heartfelt moments.
Your memories deserve the utmost care and expertise. Let’s collaborate to capture them.

Portland’s Best Wedding Venues
I’ve compiled a list of the most breathtaking wedding venues in the city, ranging from charming barns and rustic warehouses to picturesque waterfalls and stunning coastlines.
I’ve personally shot at almost every single one of these venues, so I can give you the inside scoop on what makes each one special.
why work with me?
Your wedding day will be documented with care, respect, and precision. You can focus on celebrating, knowing that your memories will be documented by a trusted expert.
Authentic and natural photography that tells your true story. Genuine emotions instead of overly posed. I capture the spontaneous laughter, tears, and joy that make a wedding day unique. This allows you to relive each moment every time you see the images.
After photographing over 400 weddings, I’ve found myself in almost any imaginable situation. I won’t be surprised or caught off guard during your wedding day, allowing me to capture the important moments under any circumstances.
I’ve been to weddings on beaches, in grand ballrooms, and even on mountaintops. Each wedding has its own character and challenges. That’s why I believe in versatility. Whether it’s the soft glow of a sunset beach elopement or the elegance of a grand ballroom, it’s essential to know how to work with different lighting and environments.

Frequently Asked Questions
how far in advance should we book you for our wedding?
Most couples book me 6-10 months in advance of their wedding date. Some holiday and prime weekend dates are booked further ahead. I typically only take 15-20 weddings per year before closing my books for the year.
Can we see a full wedding album, not just highlights?
Absolutely! I believe in transparency, and it’s important for you to see a complete story. I’d be happy to share full wedding albums with you.
Do you have backup equipment
Yes, I always come prepared with backup equipment to ensure nothing gets in the way of capturing your big day. I’ve learned over the years that any gear can fail at any time and have backups for my backups.
How long after the wedding will we receive our photos
Typically, I deliver the final edited photos within 6-8 weeks after the wedding day. However, I always aim to get a few sneak peeks to you within a day or two!
Do you Travel for WEddings?
While I have travelled extensively in the past for destination weddings, I prefer to stay closer to home these days. I can quote travel in the Western US, but like to stay in Oregon as often as possible.
Do you have Insurance
Yes, I’m fully insured. This protects not only my equipment but also gives peace of mind to venues and couples.
Why I Became a Wedding Photographer in Portland, OR
I simply came here for a photo assignment and fell in love with the city. The amount of natural beauty within an hour drive of downtown Portland was like nothing I’d ever seen. I was instantly inspired and knew that I had to live here.
After almost a decade, I’m still in love with this city. There is so much to explore, a great sense of community, and endless outdoor activities to participate in. I’m in love with food, the coffee, the farmers markets, the local shops, and the unique people.
I’ve often said that I’m always looking for a better city than Portland, but still haven’t found it.
