Welcome to Our Blog.

The Blog is a place we like to share some of our recent photo sessions, talk about the amazing people we get to work with, and let you in on a little bit of our crazy lives. We are a wife and husband team, who love our job and love working together. That's a photo of us on the right we took during a snow storm in Central Park. Leave it to us to visit New York during one of the worst snow storms in 60 years! Of course it did make for a great photo. We hope you stick around to enjoy some of our work and get to know us. We promise to share some of our crazy adventures. If you feel like it be sure to show us some love by leaving us Blog comments, they always make us feel good. Thank you for visiting! ~Brandy & Justin

Jesse & Tonya's Engagement Session ~ Portland Oregon Photographers

We met Jesse & Tonya in Downtown Portland for their engagement photo session. Although the session started dry.....it didn't end that way. Part way through our session, the black clouds moved in, lightning stuck bringing thunderous echos off the skyscrapers and the rain began to pour. Like most Oregonians, we weren't about to let the rain damper our day so we continued to shoot this happy couple in the wettest of days.....well, until we were all completely soaked.

Jesse & Tonya, thanks for sharing many raindrops with us.

Ryan & Roni's Wedding ~ Willamette Valley Wedding Photographers

Fall weddings are beautiful and Ryan & Roni's was no exception. There was a briskness in the air as the beautifully colored leaves continued to fall and blanket the venue grounds. It was just the perfect time for love.

Thank you Ryan & Roni for letting us photograph your wedding and share in your day.

Again, congratulations to both of you and we wish you the greatest of journeys ahead.

Newport Oregon ~ McCloud Photography

Justin and I were in Newport, Oregon today photographing an engagement session. After the session, we threw out a blanket on the beach and enjoyed a picnic dinner. It was a beautifully overcast day on the coast and the rain held off just long enough for us to enjoy our session and our picnic.

The photos from our engagement session will be coming soon. As for now, here is a photo of our view while enjoying our picnic.

Engagement Photos in Monmouth, Oregon & WOU ~ McCloud Photography

We met Mike and Whitney on campus at Western Oregon University on Sunday to capture some engagement photos. Looking at the sky, we were a little worried we would have another drenching repeat of the session we had on Saturday. Luckily, the weather held and we were able to take advantage of the vibrant fall colors.

Mike and Whitney were an incredibly sweet couple who were so obviously in love, and absolutely adorable. They really made our job easy.

Each of them were athletes at WOU. Mike played baseball and Whitney played softball. Being that Justin played football at WOU, he loves talking sports with fellow Western Oregon athletes!

P.S. ~ Whitney we wanted to make sure we shared some more images on your Birthday. Happy Birthday and we hope you enjoy the photos.

Day at the Pumpkin Patch ~ McCloud Photography

What an honor it was to go with Natalee to the Pumpkin Patch for her first trip. Of course, Sean and Lindsey were with us too! It was a great day filled with good memories and friends. Originally wedding clients, Sean and Lindsey have turned into wonderful friends, I just love how that has worked out.

Justin and Natalee had to have a photo together at the pumpkin patch. It was the first trip to a pumkin patch for both of them.

Thank you Sean, Lindsey and Natalee for an amazing time.

Family Photo Session ~ Cannon Beach, Oregon ~ McCloud Photography

We photographed Angela and her family last week. It was an absolutely perfect day at Cannon Beach. An October day on the Oregon Coast with warm weather, no wind, and an amazing sunset. What a day for a family portrait session and what a wonderful family.

Family Session ~ Monmouth, Oregon ~ McCloud Photography

We had a wonderful time with Ben and Heather this past weekend. This was a family session for them and Marley, who is a very important part of their family. We spent an entire afternoon capturing images at the park and then at the Polk County Fire Station. They were so great about letting me try so many ideas. I felt like a kid at the candy store getting to take so many fun photos!

Thank you Ben and Heather for the great session. We have lots more images we will be sharing with you.
