What an incredible year it has been! Here are a few of my all time favorite 2017 shoots!

One of the biggest, most exciting and totally overwhelming shoots came early in the year. My sister and brother in law had their twin baby girls, Karsyn & Madelynn. Photographing babies has never been a strength of mine, so these shoots continue to challenge me, but the girls are little troopers and put up with so many photos on a regular basis!

2017 was the year of regular food photography and frequent photoshoots that often ended in some delicious meals. Cornbread Cafe has been especially fun because of their bright branding and amazing location. It has also been a delight getting to try all sorts of different vegan comfort food! If you haven’t had their vegan rye, go try it now!

Another first, a first birthday in fact. My friend Becky of Event Crush asked me to photograph her adorable daughters first birthday and I just couldn’t turn it down!

Any photoshoots that involve dogs are automatically my favorite photoshoot. Please, bring your dog, ask about my dog, or pay me to photograph only dogs.

This engagement session was so much fun for a number of reasons, and these two furry friends certainly took it to a whole new level.

General Baos is another restaurant I’ve had the pleasure of working with this year! I’ve been obsessed with steamed buns ever since! If only everything I ate came in steamed bun form!

When a friend asks you to photograph their wedding or engagement session, you go ALL out! If that means spending 12 hours in Portland running all around, having a slumber party and searching the whole city for Cherry Blossoms.

This was one of my most loved photoshoots! I met up with this adorable couple while they were traveling along the coast while visiting from the east coast. There are so many reasons I love this shoot! We were able to make it to Hug Point at low tide, these two cuties were absolute troopers despite the freezing cold weather and the ICY ocean! AND I was able to sneak in a little trip by bringing the hubby and the pup!

Another amazing restaurant I got to work with is Ambrosia! Some of the best food I’ve had this year has come directly from this incredible place! I will be forever thinking about their scallops and pizza!

Any day I get to go to a waterfall is a good day!

The more epic the location, the more badass the photos! I LOVED meeting these two at Cathedral Park in the spring!

Couples in love, that will always been my favorite! Bonus points for a growing family!

This wedding was an amazing combination of totally relaxed and amazingly glamorous, you don’t see that very often and I’m in heaven when it happens! Plus some of the most amazing flowers I’ve ever seen!

I took headshots for my friend and partner in crime at Engaging Eugene at her favorite coffeeshop, Washburne Cafe. Working primarily inside with window light can either be tough or the best thing ever!

Some of my favorite weddings are in Central Oregon, plus I get to adventure around Bend!

Watching families grow and evolve is one of the highlights of my job. Seeing these families every year allows me to see cuties like this grow up in front of my eyes!

PINIMAGE

The most fairy tale of all fairy tale weddings!

PINIMAGE

Remember those two I adventured around in Portland with for 12 hours? They got married and it was perfect!

PINIMAGE

This was another amazing wedding, I’m falling more and more in love with winery weddings. The gorgeous surroundings and the elegant touches make for such a delightful day!

Adventures on the coast are just so hard to beat!

This is the second year I get to go on a Hop Harvest adventure with Ninkasi and hopefully not the last!

Note to self, bring more appropriate shoes next time. But I’m always down for a farm adventure, especially if I get to see a pony, peacock or both!

Another day where friends got married! It’s even better when you know the couple personally and you can’t wait for them to be married and living happily ever after!

These two brought me to an epic tree farm, put up with me pointing out every tiny Charlie Brown Christmas tree and even gave me hot chocolate!

I photographed their wedding in 2016 and now they have the cutest little babe!

Chilly weather and cute layers, fall is definitely the best time for engagement sessions!

Oh my goodness you guys, I say this like every time I blog, but it’s been FOREVER! I love sharing photos and staying connected with anyone who is following my work, but I always end up slacking on the blogging! However, I have SO many amazing shoots from this summer, fall and winter to catch you up on! Starting with this amazing day with Dash and Megan! These two are close family friends and some of the sweetest people I know so I was ecstatic to be there to photograph their gorgeous wedding! We worked out a unique deal, I would come and photograph the ceremony and a snippet of the reception but spend a majority of the evening as a guest! This was fun and super different for me but it was great being able to get in a little work and a little fun!! And how adorable are they with their little pup!?!

When I meet with couples to talk about their wedding, their plans and their engagement session I always make sure everyone knows that I am super happy to go on epic adventures together. ESPECIALLY if the location is someplace gorgeous, sentimental or both! Not all couples take me up on the offer and opt for something closer to home, but I was so excited when Ally and Cameron suggested we meet in Florence and run around together for the afternoon. We had a loose plan and two locations picked out and just explored, chatted and had fun along the way. Not only is this a blast, but I get to know them so much better, get to hear their love story and get to share some of my stories!

These two were so much fun to get to know! You’d be amazed to know that despite not knowing each other for very long before Ally had to move across the world for work, they were able to find a way to make a new budding relationship thrive while dealing with the long distance. They had shared meals, via facetime, they sent photos and texts about their experiences and stayed in very close contact through every step of their days/weeks/months. This, I’m sure was no easy task, it takes love, desire and sooooo much commitment to keep up with a long distance relationship! I’m so happy for them, so encouraged and so excited to see them get married in February!

If you know me, you know I’m completely obsessed with dogs and any shoot that involves dogs! So when my favorite winery, Sweet Cheeks hosts an event and fundraiser for Greenhill Humane Society you just know I HAD to be involved! This afternoon was surprisingly exhausting getting the attention of all these dogs to get a nice portrait, but it was incredibly rewarding and oh so much fun! Plus getting to see Charlie, Sweet Cheeks winery dog on a bottle of wine was pretty epic too! For those of you who don’t know, Charlie is a half sibling of my dog Happy, so it’s basically like Happy was on that wine label! 😉 You just know I had to get myself a bottle!

Finding the words to describe this shoot has been quite a challenge. Capturing something so special, so touching and so monumental in someone’s life is a honor I don’t take lightly. Being there to witness and document a proposal, a wedding or revealing exciting news is something only some of us are lucky enough to experience.

Being there to photograph Jon & Maddy’s special moment was something I was incredibly excited for and super nervous to document all at the same time! We had sun, we had rain, we had passerby’s and we had the risk of getting caught all at the same time! Jon carefully planned out the morning, picked a nice slow time at one of their favorite places; Sweet Cheeks Winery and had everything in place. Maddy and Jon’s family members secretly gathered at the winery each with a sunflower in hand to bring to our unsuspecting bride/fiance-to-be and at the end she would be holding a bouquet of her favorite flowers as Jon approaches and ring in hand, asks her to marry him! Of course she said yes, shed a few happy tears and celebrated happily with family from all across the country! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect proposal to photograph or a more adorable couple! I am beyond happy for these two and wish them all the luck in the world as they plan a wedding and start their lives as husband and wife!!
