Portland Wedding Photographer
I am Michelle Stevens, a Portland wedding photographer, but I love to travel anywhere in Oregon or around the world to capture special events. Wedding photography in Portland is unique as we have so many amazing venues. Oregon has some of the best scenery in the country for wedding photography, from our gorgeous wine country, to Mt. Hood, to the most spectacular coast! I also love to shoot destination weddings, here in the US, Mexico (especially the Riviera Maya), or anywhere in the world. My style of photography is storytelling with an elegant, editorial feel. I am classically trained in portraiture and lighting and I use that every day to keep my images looking timeless.
I am honored to have been chosen as one of the best wedding photographers in Portland by Professional Photographers of Oregon. I held the title of wedding photographer of the year for five straight years. I have won many state and national awards including five of the prestigious Kodak gallery awards and four Fuji masterpiece awards. I also have had a number of wedding albums chosen for PPA’s international loan collection.
Use the social media buttons in the contact area to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. I post specials on there frequently, as well as occasional photos of Poopsie, my rescue greyhound. Thank you for stopping by!
Engagement photography is also a large part of my business. I really love themed engagement shoots, and enjoy working with couples who are looking for something with a more fashion or magazine look. If you have an idea for engagement photos that you would like to try, we will work together to create some totally unique images. You can see some of my examples of engagement sessions here. If you are looking for some tips and advise on preparing for your portrait, you can check out my engagement information page.
Besides weddings, family portraits are some of my favorite things to shoot. I shoot portrait sessions in the snow one weekend every year at Mt. Hood. My clients who are looking for unique family photos love this! I also do family portrait sessions at the beach. One of my favorite is a little place just south of Cannon Beach. I also love senior portrait photography.
