Welcome TO THE

I met Spencer and Vanessa last year, at their fall Champoeg Park session, and I couldn’t WAIT to photograph their wedding!  Their lives have taken them all over the country together, through grad school and several moves, but it’s only here and now that they’ve been able to get settled and plan a WEDDING!  Friends […]

McMenamin's Octagonal Barn Wedding | Hillsboro Wedding Photographer

Mykael and Evan met in college at Oregon State University and immediately recognized each other as old souls, perfect for each other.  On Saturday they were married in a ceremony at Mykael’s grandparent’s property. They filled their day with so many important heirlooms and all kinds of vintage style! Then they headed for their Gatsby […]

McMenamins Grand Lodge Forest Grove Wedding | Hillsboro Wedding Photographer

I’ve been so looking forward to Shana and Josh’s wedding, and last weekend was finally the TIME!  I met these two for their engagement session over Memorial Day weekend, and they did their session on around four hours of sleep after driving out from Utah with their kids.  Their whole session, they were just the […]

Quimby's Pond Wedding in Dayton, Oregon

Jenna and Armando are the kind of couple who are MEANT to be: the kind who finish each other’s sentences and whose first concern is always, always each other.  It’s been such an honor getting to know them over the last year!  We first met at Lauren and Corey’s forest wedding, and when we discovered we […]

Taylor and Colby have been together for ten years, and this spring they decided to make it official and become HUSBAND AND WIFE!!  Colby proposed in Pacific City (remember their epic beach engagement session there?), and they held their wedding yesterday at the beautiful Carlton Hills Vineyard. Let’s talk daddy-daughter first looks!  Literally MY FAVORITE!!  […]

You remember Lauren and Corey’s forest engagement session with their sweet dogs, right?  I knew their wedding would be just as fun and relaxed–it was in the forest with their dogs too!  Lauren and her bridesmaids got ready at McMenamin’s Grand Lodge, and I met them there for some photos before we made the drive out to their […]

Tillamook Forest's Smith Homestead Wedding | Hillsboro Wedding Photographer

The week of catching up on wedding blogs continues!!  Next up is Kailey and Andrew’s wedding in St. Helens.  Their engagement session at Champoeg State Park was super fun and I was so excited for their big day!  They started the day by getting ready at a family friend’s house, where they had their first […]

St. Helen's Wedding | Hillsboro Wedding Photographer

Pink and gold!  AHHH!  My favorites!  There was so much fun sparkly details to this wedding!  From the fabulous pink and gold cake to the gold sequined tablecloths–I knew when Lindsey told me about these colors that I HAD to photograph this wedding!  Pink and gold were my wedding colors when I got married in […]

Horning's Hideout Wedding in North Plains | Hillsboro Wedding Photographer

Sorry, friends.  I obviously fell down on blogging this winter!  I tend to post weddings right away on Facebook and then dive into editing to get my couples their wedding photos back quickly, but I know they’re waiting for their blog posts too!  I’m doing some catching up this week, and I’m so excited to […]

Fall wedding at Children's Cottage at McMenamin's Grand Lodge in Forest Grove | Hillsboro Wedding Photographer

If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve seen photos from Camille and Michael’s fabulous Thanksgiving-weekend wedding at Troutdale House, but I just realized I never shared them here!!  What???  I blame the holidays. Camille and Michael both got ready on different levels of the venue, but didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony.  […]
