Meet Ara

Owner & Lead Photographer

An unusual combination of both an award-winning wedding and landscape photographer, Ara creates images that seamlessly weave together natural beauty, emotion, artistic portraiture, and atmosphere.  Whether your love story brings you outside or in, requires heels or hiking boots, she's equally at home at wineries, towering ballrooms, windy beaches, cozy restaurants, or the misty base of a waterfall.  She is based in Portland, Oregon, and cheerfully travels worldwide to follow her clients anywhere they may roam.
