Oregon Elopement Photographer

Oregon absolutely has some of the most diverse landscapes in the country, and as an Oregon elopement photographer, I can't get enough! Are you looking for rocky coastlines, lush waterfalls? Redwood trees, volcanoes, gorges, crater lakes? We've got all of that and more.

Meet your Oregon elopement photographer

Hi, I'm Marla, and I'm so glad that you're here considering a true-to-you wedding day here in the Pacific Northwest!

I'm a photographer for the couples who want a wedding day that feels like the real them; the couples that want gorgeous, timeless pictures to tell the whole story of their big day. Those who value fun and adventure, and are looking for a memorable, meaningful experience.

I'm here to guide you through this whole process– from choosing the perfect location to say your vows, securing permits, and crafting a timeline, all the way to that celebratory hug after you've leveled up from fiancé(e) to spouse.
