Hey! My name is Clayton and I'm an avid coffee and outdoor lover originally from Seattle. Living in Bend is simply amazing and I enjoy taking advantage of the outdoors both near and far... but I'd be lying if I didn't also mention my love for taking a seat and eating (a lot of) great food. I believe in the power of photography to tell a story and I love using photographs to spread happy wedding stories, as well as to share new perspectives and places.
I am based in Bend, OR and happy to travel anywhere from Portland to the moon (can we do that yet?)! Bonus points for a place I haven't been!
I am a CPA turned photographer because I love the power of photography to tell a story and spread the joy of a wedding day.
I aim to capture your day in a photojournalistic and story telling style. This simply means I'm attentive and prepared to capture the people and emotions present around me. For me, these in between moments and relationships we share are the most important part of a wedding.
To shoot this way, I'm comfortable blending in to your event and creating photographs based on the natural flow of the day. Some of my favorite compliments I have received were from guests who mentioned that I fit right into the day and almost could have been a guest. At the same time, I've had the privilege to shoot many weddings and I use my experience to guide and assist you throughout the day. This includes helping organize family photos, choosing key locations, and pointing us toward the best light. I want to help create beautiful photographs, not take charge of your day.
Full day wedding packages start at $2700.
I am also available for portrait sessions and commercial work. For more detailed pricing and availability please send me an e-mail.
If you have any other questions I’d be happy to hear from you.
