My favorite tree ever ever ever!
Been watching a lot of Hitchcock lately. What's your favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie? 📼 Mine are 'North by Northwest' and 'Dial M for Murder'!
I don’t usually post black + whites. (Actually this is the first one! 🙈) BUT when I do, it’s of these two cuties! 😍 Counting down the days until @katya_bix + @brian.balsiger big day! 💕
Roof hangs are always the best hangs.
Golden hour. Golden grams.
Roof top hangs with these two tonight. ✨
“Believe me, I'm no romantic, and while I've heard all about love at first sight, I've never believed in it, and I still don't. But even so, there was something there, something recognizably real, and I couldn't look away.” ― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John
Fabulous time roaming downtown Portland last night and getting to know Amber and Alex. They have a love that’s just really sincere and what everyone strives for. I can’t wait for their big day!
“But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding
One of my favorite weddings I’ve seen this year is Marcus and Marissa’s. Marcus pushed Marissa out of the way of a fast approaching car at the Charlottesville rally last year and was hit hard. He survived, they both did, and were married. @mharris_studios got this amazing shot and everything about this wedding seems fabulous!
MODEL CALL Looking for a couple to model for me in a rad shoot while I'm in Utah. (Not sure of the exact date of the shoot, but it will be between May 30th - June 3rd) DM me with a photo if interested! 🤘

Can you believe how gorgeous these gowns are!? Counting down to our trunk show this weekend... Call us at 503-827-0667 to make your appointment today 🍾🥂
Eek, my heart 🖤 @matthewschueller this is beautiful. I love couples who both wear glasses!
FREE! I figured if I put that first, it would grab someone’s attention. Did it work? Anywho. Portland hi. Oregon hi. I’m moving in a month! I’m offering a sweet deal to all couples who are getting married in Oregon or are willing to travel to Oregon for an e-session. FREE sesh if booked with any of my wedding packages. Tell your friends because mama is trying to transition her biz over to a new state and needs your help. Vulnerable moment here. Aka tag friends and spread the word. Thank youuuu.
It’s nice taking time away. Because honestly seven days of coming up with captions is too much for me. Creatives rely on creativity like sleep and water but creativity doesn’t work like that. At least not for me. It comes and goes and presents itself at odd times... sometimes when I’m about to fall asleep or in the shower. It’s unreliable and it’s not always conveniently there when you need to write a blog post or put together something on insta. And that’s why this app is tough. I feel like I have to curate my life constantly but I’m not always up to it. I need time away and taking time away has given me a week to focus on me and my work. And as a result I wrote a blog post today sharing a bit about how I prep couples mentally for a shoot. The link is in my bio along with a few of my favorite images from this day.
The pieces have arrived for our @liancarlodesign & @azulbyliancarlo trunk show this weekend!! Have you made your appointment yet? Give us a call at 503-827-0667 🥂👰 Looking forward to seeing you there!

Photo tip of the day today (see IG story) is step back, even wwwaaayyy back. A perspective shift can make you see things in a whole new way, and at every shoot I try to cover both an up close and far away perspective, it can make for stronger storytelling to have both viewpoints. It’s nice to see both the Forrest and the trees. (This last line may not make sense, but it does to me). Let me know if you have any questions or need any specific tips!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #communityovercompetition #visualcoop #unconventionaltogs #boiseengagementphotographer #engagementsession #littlethingstheory #lookslikefilm #makeportraits #chasinglight #belovedstories #loveauthentic #quietthechaos #adventuresession #naturallight #watchthisinstagood #filmpalette #portlandengagement #loveintentionally #portraitcollective #risingtidesociety #tellon #freelensing #portraitpage #couplegoals #boisephotographer #boise #lensflare #ftwotw #idaho #rockymountainbride

Hello friends 👋🏻 My name is Jamie. You know that. I feel like besides the silly IG stories and pictures of my child, you might not know me, or what I stand for, or what I like to do. . I’m a queer fat non-binary parent of both a human and a feline. I’m celebrating myself today. Both my motherhood and my fatherhood, because fuck, I deserve both. I love meeting new people, vibing, and then doing something random and wild. Maybe stripping down and jumping in a lake wild, or just stripping down and taking your picture. (you, not me.) . You WILL find me watching The Office and lately documentaries on Scientology or HGTV. . I believe in standing behind. That means standing behind marginalized people, human rights, values, votes, in protests, and in support. I try to do this as much as I can, and if you do too, let’s talk about it. . I could forever stay in Portland because I’m always finding something new, but I love traveling and physically being in a new place, smelling new air, hearing new sounds. . I’m booking weddings and elopements still, don’t be afraid to ask me about it. I get Instagram inquiries through my site more than anything, and I’m blessed for that. I love that you see my work before you see anything else. I feel valued before I even meet you. . Ask me anything in the comments! Here’s a fab photo that @valentiaproductions took of me 🖤

“My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, That I must love a loathed enemy.” ― William Shakespeare
Sometimes the difference between where you are and where you want to be is simply your willingness to let go of the fear of “no” and just ask. - - - #haystackrock #portlandoregon #portlandengagement #travelphotographer #goonies #reflections #beachsunset #photobugcommunity #adventurers #holdinghands #boldemotionalcolorful #theartofasking #goldenlight #coast #authenticlovemag
“I hug him tightly. “I can’t imagine my life without you, Christian. I love you so much it frightens me.” “Me, too,” he breathes. “My life would be empty without you. I love you so much.” ― E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker
In 2 months I get to photograph this amazing couple on their wedding day!!! @kara_lynn_lewis has been my friend since grade school and last weekend we celebrated her bachelorette! It’s rare to be friends for so long and our lives have taken on different journeys but we have stayed friends through it all which I am so thankful for. I will always treasure this girl she fully gets me 💕 can’t wait to see her marry this incredible man 💕
When you’re with a couple who is as happy these two, it’s impossible not to feel all the feels! Congratulations @miss_bodie and @morey.povich ! 💍✨ . . . . #dontquityourdaydream #gatheredstyle #shootandshare #pnw #portrait #pdxphotographer #pdxlife #engaged #weddingseason #theknot #loveauthentic #couplesgoals #portlandengagement #portlandengagementphotographer

“I would rather a romantic relationship turn into contempt than turn into apathy. The passion in the extremities make it appear as though it once meant something. We grow from hot or cold, but lukewarm is the biggest insult.” ― Criss Jami, Killosophy
