South Sister Engagement Photography

Meet Benn and Claire, two adventurers who love the mountains, their pups, micro breweries and of course, each other. They chose to do their engagement photos in a place they both love – Dutchman Flats because you can see the reason we all live here – mountains. With South Sister and Broken Top as our backdrop, we hiked a little way into the trees with their two loyal puppies, cracked open some beers and made some memories. I really loved getting to know Benn and Claire and am so honored to have had the opportunity to do engagement photos for them and also photograph their wedding. Here are a couple highlights of their engagement session…enjoy!

Newborn Photography – Welcome Adelynn!

There is nothing I love more as a photographer then watching life unfold and getting to capture precious moments. I first met Joleen and Mark when we did their fishing themed engagement session. Then I had the pleasure of photographing their beautiful wedding at Broken Top in Bend. And a couple months ago, I photographed Joleen’s Maternity Session at Sawyer Park in Bend, OR.

Needless to say, I was thrilled when I got the call that their sweet little girl, Adelynn was born! Here are a few highlight’s from Adelynn’s newborn session. Welcome to the world sweet girl!

Crooked River Ranch Engagement Photos


Crooked River Ranch engagement photography

Here’s a little peak at Ryan and Alissa’s engagement photos taken near Crooked River Ranch, Central Oregon. Ryan grew up visiting Central Oregon to work on his grandparent’s ranch. He and his adorable fiance Alissa love the wide open space and all the memories the ranch holds, so they decided to have their engagement photos take out there.


I loved being out on the ranch because it reminded me of my Wisconsin dairy farm roots…especially the tractor, although I’m more of a John Deere girl myself. These two are so cute together, and have the perfect mixture of sweet, fun and a little pinch of sassy to keep things real. I can’t wait to photography their wedding this August! Congratulations Alissa and Ryan!
