More than a photographer

On a wedding day, the photographer has a front seat to everything that happens all day long. I think we have a pretty important job, being the keeper of special memories. But, we do more than JUST take photos on a wedding day!

  • We fix veils.
  • We fix hair.
  • We pin boutonnieres for the guys.
  • We carry dresses!


  • Sometimes we are part therapist.
  • Photographers have some modeling skills for demonstration purposes.
  • We escort grandparents to their seats.
  • Sometimes we (or is it just me?) hoist brides into trees to get killer photos.


  • We stand in water for the perfect shot.
  • We are time keepers.
  • We laugh and cry with you.
  • Sometimes we ease the tension in the room.


  • Photographers are sometimes interior decorators and rearrange rooms to optimize the space for photos.
  • We hold flowers.


We’re more than just photographers. We do whatever we need to do to help your day run smoothly. We are skilled professionals who love what we do, and take our jobs seriously (but we know how to have fun!). More than that, we truly CARE and are so invested in your wedding day! 🙂

    Hi….just wanted to take a second to touch base with you concerning your business and the possibility of working together on some projects.
    I have been working as a photographer for the better part of 17 years, photographing many weddings and events. My background has also been in the photojournalistic field working as a staff photographer at the Portland Press Herald. I have been away from the business for a few years but I am now looking to return. I would be most happy to assist or go out on location for your company. Enclosed is a link to my Facebook page. Feel free to browse through the photos and bio.
    Looking forward to hearing from you. Bruce Grover

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!

I'm Linda!
