What a sweet surprise it was to see some amazing fall colors at Laurelhurst Park in Portland, Oregon. I’m always looking for spots with a variety of colors for shoots in the fall and this was in December and the fall colors were still coming. Everything foliage was pretty late this year so keep an […]

Abiqua Falls may be my favorite waterfall I’ve ever seen in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a great spot for an engagement shoot or elopement but is certainly for the adventurous spirit. I’ve been a handful of times hiking with my dogs but this was actually my first time officially doing a shoot here. At certain […]

Did you know about this gorgeous Redwood tree forest just outside the bustling city of Portland, Oregon? It’s in Hoyt Arboretum, which is a subset of Washington Park, more specifically the Redwood Deck area of Hoyt. It is my favorite little corner of the park transporting you to the Redwoods with lush green ferns, insanely […]

This engagement session in the Columbia Gorge was giving me the most fall vibes and I’m still obsessed looking back at them now. Just along the Washington shores of the Columbia River we explored a dock, along the waterfront on a rocky shore, and in the tall grass with a faint view of Beacon Rock […]

To be honest, my new favorite place to shoot in the PNW might be North Cascades National Park. It has been on my bucket list to visit since I moved up north and it did not disappoint. It was quieter than I expected (even on a weekend?) because it had been so smokey for most […]

These two came all the way from Texas to celebrate their anniversary at Cannon Beach in Oregon. It was one of the most epic sunsets and reflections at low tide that I’ve ever freaking seen. Mackenzie actually surprised Jamie with the shoot, originally telling him they were “going night swimming with sharks” so he would […]

There’s something about the Oregon Coast that gets me every time. The landscape is wild and dramatic in some places and simple in others. All the way from the southern Oregon coast in Brookings where you find epic rock faces and land bridges to the very northern cute town of Astoria. It’s nearly impossible to […]
