Being raised in Portland, the outdoors have naturally always been such a source of inspiration. But even more than our waterfalls and vast forests, for me, strong human connection between two people is more potent than any vista or waterfall. The most meaningful photos won’t always be the most breath taking, and the most epic photos won’t always hold the most meaning. Whatever the setting, wandering the wilderness or squeezing your grandmother after you put on your dress on your wedding day, I love being in on this kind of energy and emotive feeling. I am overcome with warmth and gratitude that you’d like me to be part of something so precious in your life.
