Katelyn & Tanesha – Engaged! | Oregon Proposal Photographer

A few months ago Katelyn emailed me and told me that she and her girlfriend were going to be vacationing in Oregon in August and she wanted to propose on the Oregon Coast. Katelyn and her girlfriend Tanesha live in two different states so they were extra excited to see each other after months apart and explore Oregon together. Tanesha knew that Katelyn had arranged for them to do a photo session together while they were here, but the proposal was a surprise!
Getting to witness a proposal was actually a really incredible experience. It’s moments like this that I remember just how much I love my job and feel deep gratitude for all the experiences it allows me to have. Even though I had stepped far enough back that I couldn’t hear the words Katelyn said to Tanesha, through my lens I watched Tanesha’s reaction. I teared up a little myself as I watched her expression flash from confusion, to shock, to pure joy and then as she wiped tears away.
Forever grateful to my clients who allow me in to their important moments, their intimate
moments, their emotional moments – It really truly is an honor. Congratulations Katelyn & Tanesha!


Andy & Makenzie’s Oregon Coast Wedding | Pacific City Wedding Photographer

I’ve known Makenzie since her senior year of high school when she came to work for me at the camera store I managed.
A few years after that, her boyfriend Andy was hired to manage our photo lab. So I’ve actually had the pleasure of calling both my coworkers.
Although our careers have taken all three of us away from our days at the camera store, we’ve kept in touch and I was so honored when these two asked me to be their wedding photographer.

It didn’t hurt that they were getting married on the beach in Pacific City – I’m always up for weddings that allow me to escape the August heat in the Willamette Valley!

Makenzie and Andy had a beautiful, intimate ceremony with their family on the beach where they were greeted with warm sunny skies and absolutely no wind! A somewhat rare occurrence on the Oregon Coast.
Afterwards they headed to the Pacific City Kiawanda Community Center where all their friends and family were waiting to celebrate with them.

Congratulations Andy & Makenzie!
