Howdy! I'm Gwen

I've been in the industry for over 13 years and am so grateful for the people I've met, the experiences I've had and the journey photography has taken me on.

Photography has given me a voice and a ticket to witness some of the most amazing love-filled moments in this lifetime. From documenting intimate backyard weddings, to elopements in Iceland, I'm so proud and humbled by this career.

I'm a big fan of Wes Anderson flicks. I laugh often. Virgo is my sign. I didn't follow the conventional path of life. I like to say I was a late-bloomer... Didn't get married until the age of 33. Moved to Bend in 2017.Child-free.True crime podcasts and procedural t.v. shows are a guilty pleasure. I've watched every episode of The Closer. If I was not a photographer, I would be a private investigator. Collector of vintage film cameras. Plant mother (and sometimes murderer). Ambivert. Lifelong pizza-lover yet sadly gluten-free which is not by choice. Currently, design consultant on my husband's Safari van buildout.


I work with couples that are unapologetically themselves.

Who celebrate their day exactly how they want.

Who have fun in any situation.

Go with the flow.

And are good humans.

My goal is to craft beautiful images that tell your story and showcase how amazing you are.  After all, this day only happens once in a lifetime.

I take pride in intuitively capturing those fleeting moments. In addition to the trust of my clients, my attention to detail and laid-back personality allows me to capture the unique personalities of my clients in every shoot.

Whether you’re looking for all day elopement photography coverage, couples photography or a personal portrait, I’d love to connect.

I’m based in Bend and am an experienced traveler who loves to work anywhere in Oregon or around the world.

Reach out!

Photographing in new places is one of my biggest inspirations.

Don’t get me wrong, Central Oregon is pretty amazing too. I never get tired of shooting in and around Bend. Bend, Oregon has some iconic landscapes that are perfect for any photo session. 

Maybe you’re a little like me? Inspired by nature, are excited by little adventures and are unafraid to say no to traditions that don’t feel like you.

Your wedding should be as unique as your are. I’m here to use my years of experience as a wedding photographer to help guide you, give direction to make you feel at ease in front of the camera and at times be a photo ninja, silently documenting those sweet moments you won’t want to forget.

Reach out and let’s talk about working together.

Whether you are getting married in Bend, Colorado or planning a destination wedding across the world, let’s get the conversation started.
