Engagement Sessions Are So Engaging!
I’ve been wanting to start an AMA – Ask Me Anything – series on this blog. So… let’s start with a very common question that I hear from pretty much everyone. What’s the deal with engagement sessions? First a story: Once, while getting a manicure, I over-heard a very disgruntled woman talking to her friends…Read More
Heather + Tyler | Central Oregon Engagement with Boxers and Mountains!
Awesome couple? Check. Perfect view of Three Sisters Mountains? Check. Lovable pair of Boxer dogs? Check. I had a brilliant session with Heather and Tyler a couple weekends ago to get them warmed up for their wedding next month. I’m just going to let the photos do the talking on this one. Enjoy!Read More
Katie + Zach | Coffee and Roses Engagement Session
It was soooo hot. Literally it was 99 degrees in Portland that day with a fair amount of humidity and we all felt like we were not so slowly dying. That being said Katie + Zach (especially Zach) were absolute troopers through our afternoon engagement session in Portland. We started out time together at the…Read More
Mida + Phillip | Morning Engagement Session at Willamette Park
The end of May was …turbulent. The weather was swinging randomly between wonderful sunny days and torrential downpours. I met Mida + Phillip at Willamette Park in Corvallis, hoping that we would get mostly dry weather for our morning session. It was still wet on the ground from previous rains, but we really lucked out…Read More
Marissa + Russ | A Picnic at the Painted Hills
It was a GLORIOUS Saturday in Eastern Oregon when I met up with Marissa & Russ for their engagement session. We started out with a picnic in the John Day Fossil Beds with the green and gray cliff formations behind them, surrounded by low sage and fragrant juniper trees. It was challenging to work in…Read More
Haley + Kaden | Engaged!
At the end of April my Dad and I drove to Missouri for my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary party. The drive was loooooong and not always scenic, though some of it was very very scenic, but it gave us lots of time to talk about …everything. In addition to seeing/meeting a boat load of family,…Read More
Anna Leigh + Jonathan | Windy Romance at the Oregon Coast
Last year I had the very good fortune to work with a new (to me) photographer as her second shooter. Even though I’d obviously prefer to book my own weddings to photograph I really enjoy second shooting, especially when I get to work with friends, at new locations, and/or with AWESOME Oceanside, California photographers like…Read More
Allison + Derek | Central Oregon Engagement Session
Sometimes there are couples that just want a nice casual day exploring some new outside spaces for their engagement session. Allison + Derek are THAT couple. We originally planned on an engagement session at a garden on the coast because that’s where Allison’s favorite flowers can easily be found, but they weren’t blooming (typical Oregon)…Read More
Amanda + Calvin | Sweet Love on Oregon State Campus
Last year a couple things came around full circle for me. One of those things was an opportunity to teach at the OSU MU Craft Center. I took my very first B&W darkroom class there more than half my life ago, worked at the front desk when I was a student in the photography program,…Read More
Hillary + Josh | Coffee Date and Apple Picking Engagement Session
Shut. The. Front. Door! OMG this couple is too cute for words. This is what it’s all about people… love. Crazy, silly, beautiful love. I was initially contacted by Josh to do a lovey-dovey couples session. We planned to meet at a local coffee shop first, then head out to an apple orchard where they…Read More
