As our 2011 wedding season is nearing it’s end, I always have such a mix of emotions. This past summer has been a complete whirlwind, there has been a great mix of chaos, laughter and tears, though one thing is certain- we have loved every single last minute of it. We absolutely LOVE our job! We have the greatest clients. Ever. Sharing in their love, being asked to be a part of their lives, to document and preserve one of the most important days of their lives, isClick for more »
It was a picturesque day. The sun was shining high in a cloudless blue sky down on the gorgeous Pyrenees Vineyard, where Yung & Trina would soon be announced as Husband & Wife. There was an excited buzz everywhere we turned, everyone was smiling, all eagerly awaiting the day’s festivities to get underway. Trina & Yung, both anxious to finally see one another, ready to vow their lives to each other.
It’s undeniable how in love they are withClick for more »
It was over 2 years ago, while working at the credit union, that I had a lengthy conversation with my dear friend, Justine. The conversation was all about a vintage inspired photo shoot, complete with WWII aircraft, and how I was dying to make it happen. I didn’t have access to planes, but I had a vision. It was about a week or two later than Justine came to work with a huge smile on her face and the July 2009 issue of Harper’s Bazaar in her hands. SheClick for more »

Senior sessions are filling in for August & September and we are so excited! Although the end of summer is in sight, we absolutely LOVE this time of year. So many girls prefer to do their senior session during the summer so they have the chance to show off their killer tan and sun-kissed highlights. Now is the perfect time to book your session before the inevitable rain decides to make it’s way back to Oregon. :) To celebrate the last month of summer, weClick for more »
Rain was in the forecast. And judging from the black clouds that had swallowed up the once blue sky, it appeared inevitable. But Ashley & Daniel weren’t about to let it get them down. They took it in stride, always with a smile, because that’s just how Ashley & Daniel are, easy going, always smiling. :) But, aside from one quick little shower, it didn’t rain. I believe it was a testament to their love, that no one, not even Mother Nature,Click for more »
I have known Jeremiah for several years now, we worked at the credit union together and outside of work, we happen play in the same Fantasy Football league. :) (I am the only girl in the league, which I think is pretty rad!)

Since early Spring of this year, we have been working with the amazing crew over at Lensbaby. I can’t tell you how much we absolutely LOVE their products, as well as the amazing people who work there! When they approached me about being one of their affiliate photographers with my senior pictures, I was over the moon with excitement. Lensbaby lenses are the perfect compliment to our style of senior portraits. :) They add a unique effect to our images, givingClick for more »
There are no words to describe how much Jeff and I truly love what we do. We say it all the time, not because it sounds good. We say it because we feel it. We LOVE our clients. We love that they allow us to share in their love, their wedding day, their memories, their lives. They don’t just allow us to peek through the windows, they invite us in and greet us with hugs. Our clients are more than just clients to us, they become our friends and we absolutelyClick for more »
I am a believer of fate. It was about a year ago that I sat my computer scribbling pages of notes, trying to come up with a workshop concept. A workshop that I wanted to teach. Fast-forward to May 2011 and I was girl, standing before a room of photographers, living my dream. There were no words to describe the amount of happiness I felt during those two days, it is a feeling that will live within me for the rest of my life. That is the same feeling I feel right nowClick for more »
It’s an exciting time for Jeff and I with Holli True Photography right now. Big changes are happening and it’s truly so amazing to be a part of it. To watch a small idea grow to be a concept, into a reality… there are no real words to describe the feelings I have, other than pure joy and excitement. :) We are getting ready to spill the beans on what we’ve been working on, be sure to check back tomorrow, as we will be announcing it here, onClick for more »
