I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Portland, OR and available for travel anywhere. I specialize in intimate weddings and elopements and mostly use natural light. I am very adventurous and so are my clients. I would love to travel to Mt. Hood, the Gorge, the Oregon coast, or anywhere in between to take your photos. I also specialize in family photography. I have photographed kids for 8 years and have a great connection with them.
My daughter doesn't like having her photo taken so senior photos were a difficult ask. I was fortunate enough to find Rachel. She made my daughter feel comfortable immediately and they had fun during the photo session. The photos arrived 2 days later in my email box and they were amazing. My daughter had to admit she loved them! I am so thankful for Rachel's approach and expertise. I highly recommend her.
Kilen Murphy Photography
I am a Wedding Photographer based in the Vancouver and Portland Area. I don't view a wedding as just another booking. You are inviting me in to capture one of the most important times of your life. In front of friends, family and loved ones. Usually the photographer spends the most time with you compared to anyone else on your wedding day. My photographic style relies heavily on telling your story exactly how you remembered it.
I met Kilen through a friend and was super excited when he was willing to help take pictures of our Girls Ultimate Frisbee Clinic! He jumped through all the necessary hoops (background check, sending over previous photos, etc.) in record time and showed up on time to the clinic. He was super easy to work the day of and got us the photos within 3 days! The guy is a rockstar! I am definitely excited to work with him in the future and recommend you reach out and book with him before someone else does!
Good luck Kilen!!

Erika Ellis Photography
I'm a Beaverton, OR based wedding and portrait photographer who offers packages for weddings, engagements, families (including maternity and newborn), as well as other individual and portrait specific sessions.
Capturing an authentic moment! I often will provide cues for getting couples, families or individuals comfortable. I try and incorporate humor and personality into the session as well. I find that the secret for capturing those memorable moments can be in getting the subject to laugh, move, pose, etc. in an authentic way.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
Do you have a location in mind? Are you trying to capture or portray something specific? Do you have ideas of specific poses or items that you would like to incorporate?
What do you love most about your job?
I'm privileged to be with my clients during their special moments and significant milestones. I honestly feel like I have the best job in the world because I have the ability to express my creativity through photography with the added bonus of being able to work with clients in such a meaningful way. Capturing those magical moments are what I Iove most!
What inspired you to start your own business?
I was inspired to start my own business when I had an amazing experience with my engagement and wedding photographer and I thought, "I want to do that!" My photographer has since become a close friend and mentor through the experience so it's a win win.
Why should our clients choose you?
I'm an outdoor enthusiast and fun-loving Momma to my son Oliver James and four-legged English Labrador, Gus, looking to capture your memories in the Pacific Northwest. I love documenting memories in unique locations that highlight the amazing landscape that is our backyard here in Portland, Oregon. If you love my work and are in need of a photographer, I'd love to hear from you!
