Whether you are planning a large wedding at one of the many amazing wedding venues around Salem and Portland, or you are planning a woodland celebration with just a few close friends in Central Oregon, your love story deserves to be captured in a stress-free, meaningful way.
At the end of the day, after the vows have been said and the last toast is over, all you have left is your memories and photos.
After planning my own wedding and photographing many more over the last six plus years, I know how important it is to find a photographer who not only takes amazing photos but makes your wedding day as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
I love capturing love stories that will stand the test of time and I especially love couples who aren’t afraid to plan a wedding that’s as unique and adventurous as they are because I truly believe you deserve photos that look as beautiful as your love story does in person.
First and foremost Rebekah is absolutely amazing too work with! Her communication is nothing short of perfect, she lets you know of any weather issues, let you know a realistic turn around for pictures. My wife Hannah grew up with Rebekah so they already had an underlying friendship and knew each other. When we got engaged her only requests for the wedding was a pretty location and good photographs. Hannah always liked looking at Rebekah’s website and seeing her photos so it was obvious that we would reach out and have do our pictures. From the moment I met Rebekah I knew she would be amazing to work with. She isn’t afraid to go for a hike for the right picture, she will risk falling off a cliff just to capture the right lighting. On the day of the wedding she showed up and it was almost 100 degrees outside with no shade and she never once shied away from getting all the pictures. She made everyone feel comfortable and let us have control of ideas we wanted. I think if you are looking for an amazing photographer who isn’t afraid to be themselves and get the perfect picture NO MATTER what Rebekah is the photographer for you. I would not hesitate to book another photo shoot with Rebekah. Thank you for everything you did to make Hannah and I’s wedding memorable and giving us beautiful pictures to cherish forever. – Houston J.
Let’s jump on a call so I can learn more about your wedding vision and love story. I usually book out a few months in advance so send me an email or get on a call with me as soon as you know your wedding date.
After our call, I’ll send over the contract. All of my wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session so you can not only have a consistent look for your photos but we can get to know each other before the big day.
My goal is to make your wedding day as stress-free and fun as possible so I’ll work with you before the wedding on your day-of-timeline. This allows me to get all the right shots and understand your family dynamics so everything goes smoothly.
I know it’s hard to wait for your images, which is why I make sure you get plenty of sneak peeks right away and then in just two weeks, I’ll send over your online gallery so you can share your photos with family and friends and remember every magical moment.
There will be things that stress you out about your wedding day but your photographer should not be one of them.
Once your contract is signed, I’ll send over a bridal guide and a groom’s guide as a bonus to help you plan your big day, and I’ll work with you on your day-of-timeline so we can get all the shots you’ve been dreaming about (and then some).
I truly believe your photographer should be able to make you laugh and ensure everyone feels comfortable. My superpower is directing family photos quickly and efficiently and matching my personality to fit whatever the situation calls for – you’ll never be forced into a mood you aren’t in and none of your poses will feel awkward. Promise.
From the moment you put on your dress to the final toast of the evening, I’ll capture the details and expressions you may not have time to notice. We’ll get the classic shots but you won’t have to worry about feeling like your photos are too posed or stiff. The best shots come when you are relaxed and happy.
Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when it comes to your wedding. From the time we first meet until your images are delivered, you become my number one priority.
