thank you so much for visiting!

i am a photographer based in portland, oregon. i'm available for assignments including weddings, headshots, high school senior + family portraits, commercial & editorial work and much more - in oregon and worldwide. i love to travel!

in my first high school photography class, i fell in love with photographing my friends and family, processing film, and printing black and white images. in 2009 i graduated from Oregon State University with a bfa in photography. i made the switch to digital while in college but still shoot with film whenever i can. 2019 will be my 10th year shooting weddings and i’m so grateful to have been able to work with such amazing clients over the years!

i am truly inspired by the way photography distills emotion and beauty into an image. i do this for the honor of sharing in these unique moments, in the little details and spontaneity that come from letting a shoot unfold in a natural way. i want to capture your true self, at this moment in time: the joy of your wedding day; your connection with the ones you love; your creative concept come to life. i believe in each shoot as a collaboration between me and you. through open communication and your trust in my creative vision, we will create images that you will love!

while i live in the heart of the city and adore shooting in an urban landscape, i eagerly welcome the opportunity to explore a wild landscape with you as well. one of the things i love most about Portland is the proximity to such beautiful places - forest, mountain, ocean, city, it’s all at our fingertips!

a few things about me: i live in NE portland with my husband, daughter DJUNA, AND SON FELIX, as well as our two ridiculous pups (Ella-Roux and Einstein). i have a dark sense of humor but am also totally sentimental. i love wes anderson movies. i cook, practice yoga, and go to music festivals. and of course, i'm always taking pictures.
