this week I have been working on a myriad of images, from babies, to professional head-shots, to wedding inspiration shoots.

Today I wanted to show off just one from my shoot last week at the stunning Imago Ballroom in Portland. This venue is brand new, and has some amazing natural light. It was my pleasure to work with such a great team from Bella Bloom, Bridal Bliss & Vibrant Table and many more  on this shoot.

I am dying to show off more, but here is just two frames for now…

Many, many more coming soon!

    Jamie - Loving that natural light. Well done, can’t wait to see more of this venue captured by you!


Sometimes you know instantly that you click with a potential client. When Genovieve & I first sat down  at her favorite NE Portland tea-house to chat about weddings I knew I would like this couple. She talked about her wedding, what was important. She talked about her sweet & handsome fiance who she was madly in love with. She talked about the importance of her family & cultural traditions. After two hours and lots of tea I knew I would love this couple. So just a few weeks ago we met up again for engagement photos. I finally got to meet the brilliant/sweet/handsome Jonathan & take their photos, and see the two love birds together. They were nothing short of adorable! We has so much fun romping around Powells, the pearl and even a bit of downtown. Even when the rain thew us inside the lovely Hotel Monaco we had a good time.

Here are a few of my favorites:

G & J thanks again for meeting up with me and being so fun to point a camera at. I am SO excited to capture your wedding day, and meet the entire family. I know the big day is going to be amazing. For now I would love to offer you a blog comment contest. If you can get 30 people to leave a comment on this little post I will throw in an 11×14 of an engagement photo on the house.  So leave some love people!

    so. much. love | oregon wedding & baby photographer emily g photography - […] it shines in front of the camera. You might remember their engagement session from not to long ago here. Well just a few short weeks ago it was time for the big day. It was SUCH a stunning event, filled […]


The Moran family is one of the sweetest, kindest, soulful families I have ever had the privilege to work with. I won’t get into the long story, but for many reasons they are very close to my heart, so when they called to set up a maternity & newborn session for their latest baby I was beyond excited. It is such an honor to capture this important time in peoples lives, and such a privilege to be a small part of a families story. We had a great time catching up, talking about babies, toddlers, home improvement & all things parenthood. I am so happy to share a few of the images we created.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Shannon & Jory thanks again for having me back to your home. It was so nice to see you all again, and to meet little Jasper. He is darling! I can not wait to meet your sweet baby boy, and capture all of you together. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek. I will have the whole gallery up for you shortly.
