Portland Elopement Photographer

Hi, I'm Anni, and I currently live in Oregon, but spend most my time traveling with my amazing couples from all around the world to incredible places that are both inspiring and meaningful. When I'm not working, I'm probably traveling with my husband to some bucket list place that feels impossible to miss out on. I've experienced love, friendship, and human connection to be one of the deepest pursuits in life and feel so honored to be able to document these timeless memories for people all over the world. I find so much meaning in creating experiences for couples that makes them fall more in love with each other and becomes something to look back on and feel for a lifetime.

Intimate Mountaintop Santa Barbara Elopement

“I still get goosebumps when I look through our wedding photos from April 2018. Anni traveled to Santa Barbara to shoot our intimate mountaintop wedding and hiring her was the best decision we made in during our entire wedding planning process. Anni's photographs are beautiful beyond words, her eye is unmatched, and she is so EASY and FUN to work with. I trusted Anni wholeheartedly, gave her little direction, and the final product turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Working with Anni was the pleasure and the privilege of a lifetime.” - Rachel

Baylee + Tyler Columbia River Gorge Anniversary

“Anni was not only able to make us instantly comfortable, but she truly captured the essence of our love, & what makes us, us. From the silliness to the peacefulness, and everything in between. It felt like a fun date night because she doesn't treat you like a client, you are treated and cared for like a friend! We will forever cherish these photos from our session with her in the Columbia River Gorge (where we got married the year prior). Some of our favorites are the ones we don't even remember being taken; yes, SHE'S THAT GOOD! Anni is a rare breed of artist with a photo-journalistic approach, she is about the MOMENTS and you'll see that in her work! The only thing you will have trouble with is deciding which photo to blow up the biggest on your wall!! Do yourself a favor and hire her! :)” - Baylee

Intimate Wedding at the Gap of Dunloe in Ireland

" Anni was with us for an entire week and was nothing short of amazing the entire time she was with us. She traveled to two international countries with us (Ireland and Iceland) and perfectly captured all of our favorite moments from the trip. The pictures are beautiful, raw, and real, and far exceed anything we thought possible. Anni captured us and our wedding week in such an organic way, that looking at them, every single photo emits the exact emotions felt in that moment, and it takes you right back to that time. She is funny and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, which is not an easy task. Anni is kind, knowledgable, friendly and above all, she is overwhelmingly passionate about what she does. She strived to help us capture the best moments, making sure she made herself available through long hour days so that we did not miss a moment of our wedding trip. It is hard to put into words how much we love her(and her husband Rich who came with as her second shooter, and how grateful we are to not only have had her as a photographer, but also now as a friend. We would highly recommend Anni without any reservations at all.” - Maddie

Summer Elopement in Yosemite

“I honestly don’t know where to begin… Long story short, Anni is amazing, HIRE her! Having Anni as part of our intimate wedding was the best decision ever. She is beyond amazing and anyone who has her capture their wedding is very very lucky. When we first reached out to Anni, we were in a unique situation. We were living abroad at the time and my husband (then fiance) was waiting on his fiance visa so we could move back to California. I contacted Anni with a tentative idea and date, but was unable to completely commit to that date at the time. Anni was so sweet and worked with us from that first email. She saved the weekend for us even though we were unsure if it would work out which relieved any stress we could have encountered. Once we finally knew our plans were solid, Anni was the first person we told! She was very helpful in planning all the details of our intimate Yosemite wedding. She scouted out beautiful spots for sunrise first look photos the day before and planned the timing so we could get to different locations on time. Working with Anni, an experienced adventurer and outdoor educator, made everything involved with an elopement in a National Park a breeze. When we finally met Anni in person, she was even more amazing than we expected. I stayed up for ages the night before the wedding just chatting with her and felt like I was with an old friend. We had so much in common and it was so special getting to know the person who was going to be part of my special day. On the wedding day, Anni, Rob and I pretty much got to spend the whole day together, from sunrise to sunset. Rob and I didn’t know how we would be in front of the camera, but Anni made us feel so comfortable. After our intimate ceremony, our families hung out at our cabin all day. We loved how Anni fit right in and hung out and chatted with everyone as well. Throughout the day we had hours to talk with Anni and get to know her on a deeper level. Most people who have ‘traditional’ weddings barely get to talk to their photographers, whereas we really got to know and connect with ours. I feel like this is one of my favorite memories from that July day in Yosemite. We didn’t just hire someone to take pictures, we ended up making a new friend and had an amazing experience with a like minded, talented and kind individual. Oh yeah, and then when we got the pictures back we were completely blown away! They are so beautiful and we have a new favorite every time we look at them. Anni will forever hold a special part in our hearts and we cannot wait to connect with her again one day.” - Jennie
