      Elopement, Wedding & Portrait Photography

      Based in Bend, Oregon | Often in Colorado | Forever Willing to Travel

      Howdy! I'm Gwen.

      I've been a photographer for over 10 years and am so grateful for the people I've met, the experiences I've witnessed 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 and Hawaii, I'm so proud and humbled by the importance of this career.

      Get to know me.

      Over the last several years, elopements and intimate smaller scale weddings have gained popularity and this makes me very happy.

      Over the years I don’t think I’ve met a single person who has said they wish they would have had a larger wedding but I have heard folks mention they wish they would have eloped (myself included) or done things their way.  I am a huge supporter of breaking those “wedding day norms” and doing exactly what you want. Intentionally and full of love with a little adventure sprinkled in.

      After all, this day only happens once in your lifetime.

      I take pride in intuitively capturing those fleeting moments, my attention to detail and laid-back personality are a couple of my strengths that give me the opportunity 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 work with you.

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

      Photographing in new places is one of my biggest inspirations.

      Are you ready to start planning your elopement or intimate wedding? I'm here to help you create the most dreamy day.

      Love is Love.

      I am dedicated to providing a welcoming, inclusive environment and photography for ALL couples,

      regardless of race, color, religion, age, gender and identity.

      Celebrating all love equally.
