Commonly Asked Questions


Is Bigfoot real? 

Does a bear shit in the woods?

Do we need an officiant to elope? 

I recommend one. It’s really nice to have someone perform the ceremony. But if you just want to hike somewhere epic and read vows, I’m now legally ordained to marry couples in Oregon. So we can do photos anywhere you’d like and legally sign the paperwork after with just the two of you.

How long have you been shooting weddings? 

I’ve been a full time wedding photographer for 10 years. I recently moved  to Portland from North Carolina and have one full year of local weddings under my belt in Portland before Covid hit and everyone(I mean everyone) postponed. So this is essentially my second year full time in Portland. Before this I was shooting beach weddings in North Carolina for 8 years.

What’s your favorite type of wedding?

You’ll see a lot of photographers say things like, “I just love love!” or “Every wedding is my favorite” …I assure you they’re lying haha. Personally, I love small weddings and elopements. I don’t want to deal with your drunk cousin Eddie puking on a bridesmaid you felt obligated to have in your wedding party even though you don’t really like each other. Just not my thing. I love shooting weddings where everyone is on the save wavelength and just really enjoying themselves. Elopements are hands down my favorite though. Big fan of cowboy hats at weddings. Don’t ask why.

Do you only shoot weddings/elopements?

Yes and no. While wedding photography is my full time job I also have a separate brand which focuses on photo and video for big brands and companies(think catalog campaign shoots and filming commercials). I try not to mix the two. But yes, photography is my full time everyday all day job. I also photograph headshots and family portraits.

How long does it take to get my images? 

For elopements and portraits about 1-2 weeks. For larger weddings I try and deliver under 3.

How do I get my images?

Once your photos are edited I’ll upload it to an online gallery and email you with the link. From there you can share, download and even purchase prints. Very easy and straightforward. I also keep them online for 1 year in case you misplace or lose them.

Can I print my images? 

Of course. You have the option of printing them yourselves or you can print them through the gallery I deliver as an added convenience. Either way it’s always a good choice to print!

How do Albums work? 

Once you have picked your favorite images from your gallery, I will begin designing your album(s). You can make up to two rounds of revisions. Once I get the finally go ahead it’ll take about a month to complete and deliver the album.

Can I see a full Wedding, Elopement or Engagement session gallery? 

Yes. Email me and I’d be happy to send you some full galleries.

Do you photoshop or retouch photos?

I will remove very noticeable objects like a big pimple or bright exit sign complimentary. If you require further retouching(enhancement, removal of people, head swaps…etc) I do charge a per photo fee.

Why pick me to be your photographer? 

At the end of the day you need to pick a photographer who aligns with you. The way I like to run my business is very honestly with a laid back attitude. I try not to sweat the small stuff and make your day as epic or chill as you want it to be. If you like my work and think you might want to work with me feel free to check out my About Me page or shoot me a message from my contact from.
