Adventure Elopement Photographer in Portland, Oregon

Planning a wedding day can take on a life of its own. Before you know it, you and your partner are stressed out and your wedding day is overshadowed by logistics, family expectations, and more. They're also expensive! Wedding venues, caterers, and other vendors all add up. It's no wonder that more and more couples are skipping the traditions and choosing to celebrate their love for one another with one another surrounded by breathtaking views of the Portland area, Oregon, and the Pacific Northwest. 

Being part of your wedding day and helping to tell your love story means so much to me. I approach every wedding ready to have fun and excited to create amazing images. Learn more about my Oregon elopement packages below. I can't wait to talk with you and hear all about your adventure plans!

Meet Chris

I'll be your adventure photographer, tour guide, and new friend. I love being outdoors, riding my bike, hiking, camping, you name it. I look forward to morning hikes and weekend camping trips. I'm a sucker for the National Park system and I'm slowly working my way through all 61 of them. I also love shooting weddings and I love working with clients who share my passion for hiking and adventuring. While I'm new to adventure elopements, I have over a decade of experience shooting traditional weddings and have always appreciated smaller, intimate weddings for their focus on genuine moments and the importance of a couple's love for one another.

Portland Elopement


All elopement wedding photography coverage includes unlimited planning consultations, location suggestions, an online client gallery to share with friends and family, as well as access to all of the final edited high-resolution images for download. Your gallery allows you to download all of the edited high-resolution photos directly to your computer to use on social media or make prints at whatever photo lab you choose. The online gallery also allows you to purchase professional prints, a feature that is always optional. 

In addition to the breathtaking images from the shoot, an elopement is in itself a memorable adventure.  This is your opportunity to put on your best outfits, wear flowers in your hair, and soak up sunshine (or a little rain if that's your preference) and enjoy the great outdoors of Oregon. 

Adventure Elopement Locations in Portland

There are so many incredible places to elope in and around Portland from the Courthouse, Mt. Tabor, Forest Park, or Hoyt Arboretum to places a little down the road like Silver Falls State Park, Columbia Gorge, or Cannon Beach.

Over the years I've had the opportunity to explore quite a bit of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. I've climbed mountains, explored forests, played in waterfalls, and breathed that ocean air on the Oregon Coast. While doing so I'm always thinking about cool locations and great places for portraits and wedding photos. I'm excited to make recommendations for your elopement location or if you have a special spot in mind I'm happy to work with you to make your dream become reality.

My husband and I decided to get eloped while on vacation to Portland. Once we chose Chris, he was so helpful in giving us ideas for areas to take photos and was so accommodating with our schedule. He was also able to send us a few photos as soon as we finished our session so we could announce our elopement to our family and on social media. Chris made this special day for us so much more memorable and stress free! 10/10 would recommend them to anyone!
