A Jane Austen Inspired Bridal Session


I have wanted to photograph at Topsmead State Forest since I stumbled across their website in early 2023. Somehow, I never had the opportunity, so this winter I decided to make one.

Pacific City, Oregon – Drew & Emily


I have been photographing Emily & Drew for the past few years – starting with their engagement and wedding photos in 2022, and most recently a “anniversary” session in 2024 when I was on the Oregon Coast for work.

It was somewhat crowded near the basalt cliffs, so we made our way down the beach with the clouds hanging softly in the blue sky over the ocean. There is something insanely magical about this place – awe inspiring in its beauty – that can’t quite be fully captured in photos…
