Kiel & Emily

Kiel is a past student of mine who is very special to me.  I feel so blessed to have known this amazing young man since he was a lanky young rabbit shower and watched him mature into a leader, a State FFA Officer, a father and now as a groom.

I wish all the best to Kiel, his beautiful bride Emily and their darling daughter Chloe.

Elisha & Jessica

Elisha has been one of my best friends since I was in high school.  I was so happy to stand up for her as family on her wedding day to the love of her life, Jessica.

Danell & Andy

I was excited to take this set of photographs in gorgeous Joseph, Oregon.  Danell has really been instrumental in encouraging me with my photography and I am very grateful for that and was thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this couples journey.

 I am looking forward to all my crazy Maid of Honor duties and of course an amazing outdoor wedding to the man of her dreams!


I went for a drive in my new car and found the most beautiful light so I found the most beautiful subject to compliment it, my mother.

Gale & Steve

I have known Gale since 1997 when we met at Rock Springs Ranch in Bend, Oregon.  Since that time we have managed to maintain a long distance friendship that has seen us through good times and bad as well as our fair share of beer.  I was privileged to take her engagement photos with the man she loves, Steve.
A fun and beautiful couple!  I can't wait until their wedding!


My favorite person on the planet, Jimmy, loves Oregon but unfortunately lives 2,781 miles away from his home state.

I hope these photos will help to remind him to save money for the great migration back to his mother ship.
