How to (legally) elope in Oregon

On your wedding day, I’m there to capture moments both big and small, while making sure you have as much time as possible to celebrate with your loved ones. I am inspired by storytelling, emotion, nostalgia, and all kinds of love, and aim to incorporate these into your wedding day. I'm the right photographer for you if you want to prioritize candid photos, and are particularly moved by albums that tell a full story. You have a little sense of adventure, and you absolutely can't wait to celebrate your love - no matter what that looks like to you. You share my values about respecting nature, and honoring all types of love, gender identity, and cultural background. If you're the kind of person who returns your shopping carts and waves at every dog, you might as well just hire me already.
