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 Engagement Session ~ Alycia & Jon

What? you say two posts in just a matter of days!!! yes thats right folks Im playing catch up and Its gonna be like BAM BAM BAM and BAM! Summer is ending and it is time for those awesome fall photos you know you want to book!! I have a promo out right now that is fabulous and I will share that tomorrow, so stay tuned! Now the spotlight goes to the fun and spunky couple Alycia & Jon!

It was their freshman year in College and they lived on the same floor of their dorm, sure they ran into eachother and developed a lasting freindship over the first year. They were the kindof friends that people around them knew they should be together and assumed they were because their connection was so deep. They went on a camping trip with some friends and Jon had asked her to start seeing one another. They have now been together for 4 years and on their 4 year anniversary he took Alycia on a dinner cruise on the Portland Spirit and proposed to her on that boat that evening.

They soon graduated from Portland State and as a graduation gift Jon had gotten Alycia an adorable Black Lab puppy named Olive! Oh to be parents of an adorable hairy child! love it!, And heres a taste of our fun times down on the waterfront! enjoy



These two love to laugh and be goofy together, its so sweet!




This is Olive, oh sweet sweet Olive, oh how I wanted to take you home with me! HA!






You are beautiful Alycia!



This one makes me laugh, again so goofy!


Ok so these to LOVE to make funny faces, and they decided to show me a few of those funny faces…..


And then Jon decided to be a stinker and say he was going to and only Alycia did and he ofcourse thought that was halarious!!



and to end this post, I haveto say his shirt was appropriate for this occasion
