Get to know me

Portland-based elopement photographer and outdoor fanatic.

Hi, I'm Mattie and I am so happy you're here. I was born and raised in Minnesota and I have always loved two things, creating and being outdoors.  After graduating college with a degree in Wildlife Biology, my Husband, Gunnar, and I went on the road, living full-time in a fifth-wheel trailer with our two precious doggos. We vowed to not let life pass "Before Our Eyes"; This is where my photography journey started, with the overwhelming desire to capture our experiences so we could relive them. 

Which brings me to you. I absolutely love capturing photos that you will love and look back on for years to come.  So reach out and let's plan a rad session for you and your other half.

Some of my favorite things..
