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.

Sunset Wedding photo Oregon Coast | Karen & Mark

Give me a Sunset Wedding on the Oregon Coast any day! Karen and Mark had a very intimate wedding at Otter Crest Lodge and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Karen and Mark chose their destination wedding to take place on Oregon’s gorgeous coastline and on the most perfect day. Coming all the way from Missoula Montana, they took a chance in hopes the coast would really shine that day and seriously we couldn’t have asked for a better weather day for the coast. As all of us know that are from Oregon, this can be a hit or miss on weather.  Although I truly think the Oregon Coast is GORGEOUS any time of the year, they lucked out and got exactly what they had hoped for. Otter Crest has a gorgeous rocky beach and its one of my faves for sure.  They had a lovely ceremony on the cliffs and gave me plenty of photo time during sunset to get some truly magical imagery. These two are so in love and it really makes my part of the job really easy, simply to capture that love on film.

Here are some sneak peeks of their wedding portraits on the coast. Thanks Karen and Mark for trusting me with your beautiful wedding!

Oregon Bride Magazine Cover Photographer

Oregon Bride Magazine Cover Photographer

Hi Lovelies! I am FINALLY sitting down to blog this seriously awesome experience photographing the COVER and 6-page feature of the current issue of Oregon Bride Magazine! To say I was excited to be commissioned to do this is an understatement! And I would love to share with you my experience throughout the whole process.

When I received the original email from the very talented and sweet Amanda Hill who is the Art Director on this particular issue, I was beyond thrilled and at the same time surprised as there are so many talented photographers from all over that have been asked to do this in past issues. I was honored and completely up to the task and told my self “seriously why are you so nervous? you deserve this and can TOTALLY do this!”

Photographing Bridal fashion of any kind has been my jam for a while now and am obsessed with it, so when I get asked to photograph a Look Book for a designer or photograph a magazine spread, Im all over that and jump on the planning! Photographing pretty things on gorgeous people or couples is what dreams are made of right? Well it is for me especially when I am involved in the styling and art direction of the shoot. I could seriously photograph fashion editorial every single day and be perfectly content!

So getting back to the always amazing Oregon Bride Magazine, I had no idea of how or what I was shooting up until a few weeks of the shoot and I was super nervous not being in the know but knew that Amanda Hill was going to do a fabulous job on art direction and styling by Sarah Mansfield. They told me we were shooting a bridal makeup and hair feature and we were featuring several of Oregon’s top makeup and hair professionals! Yes! and when I heard we were working with some of my industry friends, I was even more excited because I knew it would be absolutely PERFECT!

When I arrived at the studio, I walked around preparing the studio for what I knew was going to be an insanely busy and crazy wonderful day. Bringing the fans in, start the music, and get all of my gear out and make sure everything is ready to go. Setting up tables and chairs for each hair and makeup artist and space for the models and their gowns. As the awesome team of professionals started flowing in, I knew it was almost time to turn up the music and start getting myself mentally ready, HA! We had 4 hair and makeup teams come in as well as a stylist, assistant, Art Director, Senior Editor, 4 models…. feeeeewwww it was getting all crazy up in here! Each Model got a different look for bridal makeup and hair showcasing a classically natural look on our beautiful cover model Alyssa, a romantic braided updo and flowing tresses on the lovely model Clara, a stunning updo on our stunning model Michelle and a Platinum glam look and updo on our beautiful model Claire. Our Stylist brought us several different wedding gowns for the shoot including designs from English Department, Divine Designs and Merrime Bride and Soiree.

If you have ever worked a full day shooting for a magazine then you know you run on adrenaline and once you here the words “thats a wrap!” there is an overabundance of joy and satisfaction in knowing this day went good, this day went REAL good. And next was getting these images to the magazine and waiting for what seemed like the longest few months in history to see what images they decide to use for the cover and the inside feature. And what a great way to see the cover than at the wedding Industry’s favorite party of the year; The Oregon Bride Magazine Best of Party! Everyone seriously rocked it and I couldn’t have worked with a better team and hope to do this again real soon!

If you would like to see the issue, I have some in the studio and the issue is on the stands now, so grab your copy!

Illahe Hills Country Club Wedding Photo | Alix & Cam

Best Wedding Photographer in Oregon

Happy Wednesday friends! I am so excited to share this absolutely STUNNING Illahe Hills Country Club wedding or Alix & Cam beautifully planned by the VERY talented Katy with Bridal Bliss! To be honest with you, I had trouble narrowing the images down because I truly love them all and there were so many beautiful elements to their wedding and must share moments!

Alix & Cam are both beautiful souls and genuinely good hearted people. When we met for the first time, I just knew we clicked and was so honored to be chosen to photograph their engagement portraits and their wedding!

Their wedding day rolled up and the sky was giving us a little bit of a scare, there was lightning, thunderstorms and rain in the forecast but it held JUST in time for Alix and Cam and their guests to enjoy the wedding day and throughout the day and evening, the skies would open up and send down some of the most beautiful light, we couldn’t believe it! There were so many sweet intimate moments during their getting ready, Alix and her mom literally brought me happy tears watching how sweet Alix was with her mom and helping her get ready and the laughter and smiles as her mom watches her prepare for her wedding day. Alix’s Watters Wtoo dress was seriously the most beautiful wedding gown I have ever seen! It was the most perfect dress on Alix, seriously just wait until you see it!

The details throughout were perfect for the setting at Illahe Hills Country Club, Blüm designed a gorgeous floral chandelier that hung beautifully over the center of the room. I loved how the silk ribbon hanging from the bouquet blew so softly in the wind, it really fit in with the softness of Alix’s entire look.

Alix & Cam, it was an honor!

Oregon Family Photographer | Brayden is 3

I don’t even know where to begin with how special this family is! I always love getting the call from the Griffith family letting me know that its time for pics! I love that we have photographed the last two years of family photos and their son’s 2 and 3rd birthday portraits up on their farm! They are in their element for sure, and LOVED walking around the property while they play with their goats, chickens and their pups. It was such a blast getting to photograph Brayden’s 3 year photos, he is such a sweet boy and love watching him do what boys do and photographing this while it unfolds.

Bringing something personal to your family session or photographing them at your family home or somewhere that puts you in your element makes your session even more personal and really brings out those real moments between a family.

See you next year!

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!
