A season in photographs….

I can’t even believe how much time flies. How many incredible people I’ve photographed over the past several months. TONS of weddings, families, engagements, seniors. I’ve put a lot of hours, blood, sweat and tears into my work.


Every time I get ready to post another blog post, it forces me to look at my work as a whole rather than going from session to session trying to make a living and making my clients happy. I photograph ALL sorts of sessions and do all the normal posey posed stuff just like every other photographer.

This post is going to be a bit different.

These images are MY personal favorites. The images that make my heart sing. The images that I’m proud of. These are the images that I wish were hung huge on my client’s walls.  Some of them just make me laugh. I like to create art that stirs something in someone. I want to make you laugh, smile, or even cry.

My favorites are almost always different than the ones my clients pick and that’s okay. That’s why I overwhelm them with a ton to choose from.


So here’s a bit about me and what I love through my photographs….









Recent favorites….. Longview washington wedding and portrait photographer

Every year I tell myself I’m going to get better at blogging. And every year I find myself too busy working and posting my images on facebook, that my poor site gets neglected. It’s late at night on a friday and I’m prepping for a wedding tomorrow but figured I could at least post some images!!

Whenever I pull from my files to post it strikes me at how different my work is from one session to another. Yes I have a distinct style but I notice more and more how much I photograph based on the feel of the wedding or session. Some are bright and airy, some are deep and emotive. It’s kinda interesting looking at my favorites as a whole and seeing how I appreciate so many different things.

Anyhoo, enough talkity talk. Here’s some photos. <3

Wedding Photographer of the Year!!!

This year I was absolutely honored to receive several awards including the PPW Wedding Photographer of The Year. I’ve been working hard towards getting my Masters with the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and entering print competition is part of the program. It’s been one of the most amazing/frustrating/mind-blowing experiences I’ve ever had as a photographer. I can’t thank my mentors enough for all their help the last two years.


Here’s my official press release;

Spring Special!!!

This spring and summer my schedule is kinda crazy with weddings so instead of doing minis like I normally do, I’m making it easy peasy and offering my special for any day and not just specific dates!!!

Special can be used for engagement photos, family photos, senior photos, baby photos, dog photos you name it!!!!

*please note weekend availability is more limited since I have so many weddings. I will be offering some weekday evenings, however to accommodate schedules.:)


Chris & Sarah – Barn wedding, Oregon

From the moment I met Sarah and Chris I knew their wedding day would be absolutely perfect. They both seemed to enjoy each others’ company and were so incredibly in love. I blogged their engagement session several months back. I knew their actual wedding day would be one of my favorites of the year, and I was so right!! Every detail was absolute perfection.

Their amazing wedding was coordinated by Weddings and Events by Muse. One of the BEST coordinators I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their big day….
