I'm Cara

I live in Oregon with my husband Michael and adventure pups Atlas and Kaia.
I serve awesome couples like you all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

My favorite days are spent sharing summit beers and laughs, and freaking out over an epic view. I love the Oregon coast and Redwoods just as much as the epic mountains of the North Cascades.

I believe with all of my soul that you deserve to have a wedding day that looks like you - that celebrates what you and your partner love to do, instead of trying to fit you into a box (or ballroom).

From dreaming to planning, to the big day and after, I lend you my experience, my best ideas and inspiration, my favorite and most breathtaking locations, and the all cheering-on you need.

+ More  than a photographer

+ More than a wedding planner

Just think of me as your wedding wing-woman and adventure enabler.

Cara was an absolute DREAM to have as our elopement photographer! ... Cara made the planning leading up to the big day beyond stress free when our wedding day came along we felt super comfortable and like we knew Cara for years. On our wedding day, Cara kept the "stress free" theme going and allowed us to enjoy our day with one another completely. We are so in LOVE with the photos and feel like it fully captured all of the love from that day!

Words can’t even begin to express how grateful I am for Cara. We had a wonderful time roaming around dunes and goofing off. The entire experience was very special and the beautiful photos were almost an added bonus to the day! That’s not to discount the final product though. Cara has an amazing eye for reading natural light and the end photos are absolutely dreamy! Everything felt very natural and my husband and I enjoyed ourselves throughout the shoot, which is evident in the shots Cara captured. I would recommend Cara to anyone and everyone who asked for a photographer (in fact I'd probably even recommend her work to people who weren't asking for a photographer)!
