Dylan M Howell

I came to Portland from Boise, Idaho. I quickly fell in love with the city while on a photo assignment and instantly decided I needed to move. I live near Mt. Tabor with my two cats and wife Jess. Outside of photography, I spend my time cycling, working on my Miata, rock climbing, and touring the local vegan restaurant scene.

A decade back, I decided to move to Portland, Oregon.

I wanted to be closer to the nature of the Pacific Northwest, to be near the ocean, and to surround myself with interesting and artistic people. Through my travels, I never find a place that feels more like home.

I’m often asked why I shoot weddings and the answer is simple. There is no better workplace. Where else are you surrounded by love, beauty, happiness and joy every time you go to work?

My Signature style

Authentic moments

I capture the real vibes of the day. The unposed and genuine emotion. The spontaneous and heartfelt moments.

beautiful light

Light is my paintbrush. I do everything in my power on a wedding day to make sure that I’m capturing each moment in the most flattering and lovely light possible.

creative perspective

I don’t want you to see your wedding through the eyes of boring images. Let’s get some interesting and unique angles to these special moments.

I still shoot film

I bring my film cameras to almost every photoshoot. When I’m editing my digital images, it’s always in a way that reminds me of the film look that I’ve always loved.

I teach SEO to photographers

Over my career, I’ve been lucky to learn quite a bit about marketing for photographers. I have a business that teaches photographers how to be found online. It is incredibly rewarding to see their growth and success.
