Wedding Photography Packages

My main goal on your wedding day is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, allowing for natural images that allow you to see your true selves.

I've been photographing weddings since 2010. Now capturing over 350 weddings in locations spanning the globe. I now concentrate the majority of my work in the Portland, Seattle, and Northern California area. You've likely noticed that my portfolio tends towards outdoor locations, but I also have extensive experience documenting indoor weddings and receptions.

I tend to gravitate towards a more documentary style, with less posing and more natural interaction featured throughout.

Hourly Wedding Coverage

What's included in the wedding packages?

  • Fully Edited Digital Files (High Resolution)
  • Private Online Gallery with easy download options
  • Print Release allowing you to print images anywhere
  • Built-in print store to print through my favorite pro lab
  • Personal use of images online (social media / etc)

Covid Update

I'm fully vaccinated as of May 2021 and open to document any weddings or events that meet local / state / federal regulations.


Engagement Sessions

I offer engagement sessions in the Portland area (within two hours) for $1250. These are typically 2-3 hours and can be in a variety of locations, from your favorite local coffee shop, hiking trail, coast spot, or home. I also offer them as an add-on to any wedding package for $500.
