Hello!

Hi I'm Deyla! I am wedding and lifestyle photographer, a dreamer, passionate about love, a mother of two pretty amazing kids, completely in love with my husband, pug lover, driven, romance fanatic, laugh loud, and hug tightly.  

I have been priveleged to photograph over 100 weddings and thousands of Portraits. I have been honored to be a part of so many lives and get to know all of these lovely people. I believe each story is it's own with real, intimate 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 have forever.

Thank you for taking the time to view my work and I look forward to hearing from you! 

Deyla has photographed Weddings all around the US such as Florida, Illinois, Georgia, New York, Washington, California and of course her home state Oregon. You can find her work featured on many online wedding blogs such as Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, Style Unveiled, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Brides Magazine and The Knot.

White Salmon Engagement Photos | Heather & Todd

This couple was a dream to photograph, Gorgeous couple + Perfect light + Stunning location= PERFECT! When Heather mentioned her grandparents property up in White Salmon, WA  followed by some pics of the property, I couldn’t be more excited to get these to in front of my camera. Im talking 240 acres of hills, trees, pure bliss for this gal and we had such a blast and it was so fun getting to know these two even better and I can only imagine how their wedding day will be!

Feast your eyes on these two cuties, I promise you won’t regret it one bit ;)

Oregon Coast Family Photographer | Nuttman Family

Oh my I do adore this family! We are very lucky to live only an hour away from the coast and an hour away from the mountains, Its pretty awesome and sometimes I think we take Oregon for granted and not fully appreciate the beauty that surounds us. but not this family, meet the Nuttman family, they rock… they really do and I have been super lucky to photograph them a couple of times now and always end up having a blast with them. They wanted to take advantage of spring break and head to the beach for their family portrait session. I don’t know if you remember but spring break wasn’t the best weather time we have had in the past during then but that didn’t stop us from heading down to the beach for a break in the rain and get some fun family portraits.

You may recognize the lovely lady in peach, thats Amy, she’s the fabulous owner of Blush Bridal Events go check them out, they plan some beautiful weddings and events!

Oh and one more thing before I show you their awesomeness… we JUST sent out our summer newsletter and announced our July Beach Session Event, if you didn’t get that, click HERE to view.

Tangible memories displayed in your home

I get so sad when I hear from clients “I haven’t even printed from our digital images yet” even after a couple of years and that disk or usb is collecting dust next to your computer because well I get it…. life.  I cannot stress enough how amazing it is to see touch and feel those images either hanging on your walls, made into a gorgeous leather flush mount album for everyone to ooohhh and ahhh at.  your memories in tangible format, yep do it! We don’t realize how easily forgettable our digital images are, not because you don’t love them but because they are not physically in front of you to touch and feel.  We are an out-of-site out-of-mind type of generation, everything is digital.

Most of my wedding collections come with an album credit because thats how I encourage my couples to invest in their portraiture. Would you forget about a $500-$800 credit? Can’t figure out how to display or use your images? I have some ideas for you and happen to be the most popular with clients.  Each one of these products are available through us and we have a little contest to boot, keep scrolling down to get more info.

Flush Mount Albums, this is a 10 spread 10×10 leather bound flush mount on thick watercolor paper. this cover is one of my faves, Sahara in distressed leather.

Another awesome way to display some of your images is displaying some Gallery Prints on a wall shelf or easel, these are matted prints and probably one of my favorite ways to display gorgeous photographs in right now. The matte is super thick and has backing on it so it really doesn’t need a frame to go with it, they are meant to do without the frame and look so classy and elegant.

Canvas prints are also a great way to display larger pieces of art work on your walls, and Im not talking 8×10′s or 11×14′s Im talking about that 24×36 Canvas in your bedroom or over your sofa in your living room! I have several large canvases in my home and the minimum size I have displaying my family pics and of my husband and I is a 18×24 and up to a 24×36. It makes such a statement and is your very own piece of art.

This is a 28×20 .5″ thick canvas in my office, the .5″ is my preference although I have several 1.5″ thick canvas’s around my home as well.

Portland Marina Family Portraits | Williams Family

I do love a Portland marina family portrait session! and this family braved the wind and sprinkles that chilly Portland day.Being commissioned by another Photographer  is always a bit nerve racking but always an honor as well. The lovely momma in this shoot is just that, a local photographer and she has two very sweet rambunctious boys that want to run and be boys and so we shall do just that and sneak in a few of mom and dad along the way :)

Here are some of my faves from their session…

Portland Maternity Portraits | Roselyn

I know I have said it before but I absolutely adore photographing this beautiful time in an expecting mother’s life and their family’s lives as well. And I absolutely loved getting to know Roselyn and her beautiful story.  Roselyn wanted simple but beautiful portraits of her pregnancy in the studio and I didn’t want a lot going on in the backdrop for this, I wanted the photos to focus on her and this beautiful moment for her. I get asked a lot about when I shoot in studio, Are you using studio lighting for these? and the answer is I never use studio lighting because I love using as much natural light given to me as possible. There is nothing wrong with studio lighting, in fact I know some very talented  photographers in Portland that primarily use studio lighting, but for me, its never been the style and feel of the sessions I love to photograph. And Roselyn wanted just that, soft natural light and I’m lucky to shoot in a studio that gives me enough of this delicious light.

Roselyn made her session a big deal because it is a BIG DEAL. Unless you’re Kim Kardashian, how many times do you actually have professional photos taken of you? I always recommend choosing outfits that make you feel beautiful as well as comfortable for maternity, loose fitting chiffon dresses are always recommended as well as hair & makeup professionally done, because why not pamper yourself?

Well Roselyn did exactly that and had fun with her outfits and brought in 3 different beautiful outfits.  Jennifer from Face Body Beauty came in and pamper her with makeup and hair. She looked absolutely stunning and felt gorgeous and that is the goal I strive for any Portrait session.

Here are some of my favorites from her Maternity Portrait Session in the studio:

Washington Park Anniversary Portraits | Christina & Kyle

What better way to celebrate one another then having a portrait session just for the two of you!

These two cuties wanted to celebrate their 5 year wedding anniversary photographing in Washington Park with a romantic picnic. So fun! I love that they wanted to incorporate things from their wedding such as this little stool they bought as a decor item for their wedding and pears were also a significant thing at their wedding as well. Ofcourse wine and cheeses and a baguette added to the romantic picnic also! they also brought their sweet pup to the shoot.  We lucked out since it was a tad muddy around the park still from the rain, I found a gorgeous magnolia tree to be a nice setting for their picnic and I couldn’t have been happier about that!

Happy 5 year anniversary Christina & Kyle! it was truly an honor photographing this time for you both!

Hillsboro Newborn Photographer | Baby D

 

 

I love getting a call from a brand new client saying they want soft intimate lifestyle imagery for their portraiture session. They moved up here from California and have no family up here so what better way to let their family and friends step into their lives but by showing them portraits of a day in the life adjusting to parenthood and a new beautiful baby boy. People ask me all the time, what are your favorite type of portrait sessions when it comes to families and kidos? I love when families PLAY with their children and interact with them for their photos, Im not a traditional portrait photographer and try to steer away from the more traditional shots of families and babies. I love to watch brand new families interact with their newborns and work together when taking care of them, It is so beautiful to watch and photograph this time in their lives. Here are some from their session…
