Hi, I'm Deyla! I am Portland and Seattle wedding and lifestyle photographer, but more then that I'm a mother of two awesome kids and completely in love with my super hot husband of 13 years! Here are some other fun facts about myself...


* I am giddy about love. 

* I drink capucino like its going out of style.

* I Love the water, something so serene and soothing, I can't help it.

* I am happiest when my ideas unfold, and with those who trust me to do this for them in their sessions.

* My husband says I have too many pairs of shoes... I disagree.

* I will hug you when we meet for the first time.

* Milk Chocolate is my friend

* I love to travel

* I frequently volunteer at my children's school 

* I work out of my home office and I love it! 

* I have no idea what my natural hair color is

* I'm one of those "big" laughers

* I have a handsome 14 year blind and deaf pug named Duke, he's my buddy.

* I genuinely and wholeheartedly love what I do!

I have been privileged to photograph over 150 weddings and hundreds of Portraits. It has been an honor to be a part of so many lives and truly lucky getting to know all of these amazing people. Seriously from the bottom of my heart, I love all of you! I believe each story is it's own with real moments and I capture these in a beautifully classic way.

I would love to get to know you, meet you and hear your story and in turn make some beautiful imagery for you to hang on to forever.

Can I take you out to a cup of coffee (did I mention I love cappucinos?)? Looking forward to meeting you!

Deyla's work has been featured on both print and online wedding blogs such as Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, SGreen Wedding Shoes, Style Unveiled, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Brides Magazine and The Knot.

Portland Maternity Photographer | Deena

As I sit here typing out this post, I can’t help but think about the strength and beauty of expectant mother’s. This one in particular as she comes due in just a few weeks. Photographing her Portland Maternity Session was such an honor, as they share these beautiful moments with her growing family, laughing, playing, and simply loving one another, makes my heart so happy. They have SUCH a beautiful relationship and I had hoped to portray that in these photographs.

I know when I was pregnant with my now teenagers, These types of photos were not really popular at the time and I totally wished I had some beautiful photographs taken while pregnant, I felt so beautiful and content and would have loved to have that captured on film. If you have thought about having a maternity portrait session, please consider it and contact me to ask any questions or concerns you may have, I’m happy to help show you how beautiful you are and how important these photos will be from now and years to come.

Downtown Portland Engagement Photo | Elise & Louis

Elise and Louis went to Serratto for the first date, they sat in the corner by the window wondering what will happen next. Well we all know that what happened next was falling in love and then Louis proposing! I am so excited to photograph their nuptials in a couple of weeks at the gorgeous Skamania Lodge.

For their Downtown Portland Engagement photos, we went to some of their favorite spots and what better way to start off their engagement session was at the very first place they met, Serratto! They sipped on dry martinis and just simply enjoyed each others company. After an outfit change, we went to walk around the Pearl district a bit, stopped in for another drink at the Hairy Lobster in the pearl and ended our evening photographing them in their true element, playing tennis together! Loved watching them!

Thanks for such a fun evening and I cannot wait for your wedding!

Belles On The Bluff Wedding Photo | Abdean & Jennifer

Jennifer and Abdean had their wedding at a new Spokane, Washington venue called Belles On The Bluff, its stunning views overlooking the valley are nothing short of amazing! Jennifer and Abdean are two of the sweetest people on earth and photographing their wedding day was such a pleasure. Their family also has a special place in my heart as the bride is the sister of my husband’s childhood best friend. Burke Vineyards brought some of their amazing wine to sip and everything from the decor to the custom made farm tables really put everything into place perfectly.

I thought I’d share some of my faves from their wedding day! Congrats to you both!

Basel Cellars Wedding Photo | Lauren & Devin

Lauren & Devin’s stunning destination wedding at Basel Cellars in Walla Walla Washington was not only gorgeous but the friends and family surrounded them with so much love and support, it was pretty awesome to be around.

Lauren and Devin live in Montana and were looking for a beautiful venue on this side of the woods due to some family and friends living in the northwest, but of course picking their venue was not hard when they came across Basel Cellars! they rented the entire estate for about 4 days it has some of the most beautiful features! First off the woodwork in this estate is insane! secondly there is a killer Guys area downstairs complete with dance stage, theatre, pool table, and bar! I mean seriously! Lauren and Devin have a beautiful fur baby  named Brooks who really captured the show during their wedding rehearsal with his swimming, and going down the water slide and carrying around his giant rock.

From the details, the touching moments of both first looks (one with dad and brother and the other with Devin), the stunning Walla Walla valley, and gorgeous sunsets, their wedding day was nothing short of perfect.

My favorite photo of the day with two of my lovely brides! What an amazing experience it is to photograph not one but two weddings from the same wonderful family. Love these ladies!


Resort At The Mountain Wedding Photos | Nicole & Nick

It started out at a Huskies fraternity tailgate and continued on to be a match made in heaven truly! What a beautiful wedding at The Resort At The Mountain in Welches, OR! We were expecting sunshine and open skies but instead we got a little rain and a whole lot of fog! But that didn’t stop this wedding from being gorgeous thanks to the amazing Elizabeth of Bridal Bliss! Having to change things up a bit last minute was nothing short of flawless!

Watching Nicole with her mom and sister was so sweet during the preparations, both mom and sister helped her get her dress on, and its usually one of my favorite times during the day to photograph because it is such a sweet memory being built for them. There was music and lots of dancing when the girls were getting ready! During the ceremony, Nick and Nicole exchanged two red roses symbolizing something like a unity candle would, very neat idea! After the ceremony, everyone moved over to a cocktail hour on the deck outside of the ballroom and THAT was just the beginning of this evening! It was filled with SO MUCH dancing and fun which led to some amazing reception photos! We ended the night with all the University of Washington Alumni on the dance floor for a group shot throwing up their “W” can’t get better then that!

I was truly honored to be a part of Nicole & Nick’s beautiful day, Getting to know them both over the last year through the planning process was such a pleasure. Love you both and wishing you the very best on life, love and marriage!

Union Pine Wedding Photos| Alice & Joel

To find each other was meant to be for these two! Alice & Joel are such a sweet and loving couple, and it was an honor to watch their beautiful day unfold. They started off at one of my favorite hotels downtown Portland; The Sentinel  getting ready with some of their closest friends and family. Then we were off to the funky hip Portland venue; Union Pine, for the ceremony and reception. I absolutely loved the tropical elements with Portland flare that Kirsten with Bridal Bliss pulled together, to make this one heck of a wedding! So many family members and friends from afar shared in their day and they were surrounded by so much love. It was truly an honor!

Lake Oswego Maternity Photo | Christa & Dan

There is just something so beautiful about the relationship between two expectant parents. It’s a deeper love then anything else. Christa (a fabulous photographer btw) and Dan came to my studio in Lake Oswego and we started off their Maternity portraits in studio and then ventured out to George Rogers Park on the water. Christa wore this gorgeous cornflower blue dress and brought a stunning bouquet as an added bonus to use in some of our photos. But nothing beats the photos with both expectant parents together enjoying this special moment with one another and just being with one another with nothing but duck calls in the background peacefulness.

Photographing them was such a pleasure and Im so incredibly happy for them both!

Blame it on the Rain

Yep I know you had that song in your head! I broke out the song Blame it on the Rain by Milli Vanilli yesterday and it couldn’t have been more perfect for what yesterdays crazy insane weather was like! Oh I do love living in Oregon and I really don’t complain ever about our weather because really it is truly one of the most beautiful places to live because of it. But common!

I announced my Spring Mini Sessions a couple of weeks ago and I KNOW there was so much hesitation because our weather has really just been nasty and not Spring like at all. I get it, I do!

But hey, I see some sunshine in our near future and It may just give us what we need, MUCH NEEDED Vitamin D!

Do you feel me?

Oregon Golf Club Wedding | Tori & Brett

What a way to ring in the New Year and have all of your friends and family in one place celebrating the beginning of the year with a wedding at the Oregon Golf Club. The cold winter day was filled with sunshine and couldn’t have been more perfect.  Elizabeth with Bridal Bliss planned a wedding to remember and the details throughout were exquisite. We started off the day at Tori’s parents home, which in itself was also pretty darn gorgeous! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect bride and bridal party and Tori’s mom and dad are seriously the sweetest people you will have ever met!

Their wedding was held at the GORGEOUS Oregon Golf Club and the views are to die! this wedding was filled with lots of white drapery, white flowers, glitz and glam! and definitely was a perfect way to end a wedding season.

Portland Family Portraits | Starbuck Family

I have had the joy of photographing these Portland family portraits since sweet beautiful little Ainsley was in her mommy’s tummy! And it’s always a good time with this family. We decided to venture over to the Columbia River on the Portland side to get some sunset shots and to celebrate Ainsley turning 4! Ofcourse momma always dresses her in the cutest outfits, I absolutely adored the fox sweater!

They scheduled a Mini session which are always great fore those with smaller children that cannot handle a full session and you still get a lot of beautiful photos to view and select your favorites from on your final online gallery. Mini Sessions are offered all year long now and we still have special mini-session events in March and October. email us to request your Portrait PDF packet today with all the details!

Here are some of my faves from their Portland Mini Portrait Session.
