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.

Starting Prices

That is a great question! How do you choose the perfect photographer when the market is inundated with image overload? You can scroll for hours on Instagram and find hundreds of photographer’s work you love.
I’ve been shooting weddings since 2010 and am prepared for just about everything. When you are hiring a professional photographer not only do you want someone who can capture and create pretty images – you are hiring someone who helps with the flow of the day, stays calm and positive (even if things aren’t going as smooth as planned), is patient and also who can work under stressful situations.

I certainly do! Eloping is a great option for those overwhelmed by the thought of planning a large wedding or for those who desire a more laid-back day.
I LOVE intimate, genuine, weddings and elopements. Whether you are saying your vows in the mist of a waterfall, on a bluff overlooking the ocean or in your backyard I want to be there to capture your love.
My home base of Bend, Oregon is full of locations to choose from. I am happy to offer advice and do some exploring to find the PERFECT one of a kind spot in nature for your vows as well as offer Leave No Trace tips for your outdoor celebration.

Ding Dang, you bet! I love traveling.
My travel fees are basic and included in out of state/ international collections, so there aren’t any other costs to factor in.
I’ve photographed weddings and elopements in Shanghai, Iceland, Alaska, around the Western states and Hawaii. Colorado is my home state and I have lots of experience shooting there.

A signed work agreement and $1,500 retainer. Remaining balance is due 14 days before your date. Heck yea!!
