Jake & Mariah | Cottonwood Beach Engagement Session

It was a crisp March evening, after days of rain and snow…..but it was glorious!! The perfect day!  Jake and Mariah were both in town for a quick weekend full of celebrations before zipping back to their separate towns, where they’re each attending college. It’s no easy thing doing long distance relationships! But these two showed up smiling and ready to soak up every minute in each others arms.

A beautiful love, a beautiful river, and a beautiful sunset!


Steven & Cassie | Mt Hood Engagement Session

From the moment I made the connection that the new couple referred to me by Your Perfect Bridesmaid was already in the circle of “my people”, I was so excited to meet Cassie & Steven. We attend the same large church, and love a lot of the same people, but had never met each other officially! It’s always fun to make those connections.

I was so excited when Cassie & Steven told me they wanted to have a snowy adventure for their engagement session! Last weekend we adventured up to the mountain in search of some snow, and found this beautiful spot!

I have to say, I work with a lot of happy couples, but these smiles! This is a seriously happy couple!! Enjoy the sneak peek.




Family Portrait Session | Portland, Oregon

Nothing fills my photograph loving, memory capturing heart more, than when I get to capture new chapters of my bride & groom’s life! Max & Lauren were married a few years ago in a private Catholic ceremony in Portland, followed by a big wedding & reception the next summer at the Peterson Farm Red Barn in Woodland, Wa. I was blessed enough to capture both ceremonies and the festivities! Then, earlier this year, I got to meet their new baby boy Charlie at his newborn session in their adorable home. Then, a few weeks ago, Lauren’s whole family came together at Cathedral Park, in Portland, to capture some fun family memories while the little guys  are still ….little! It was so fun to see Charlie & his cousin Gio interacting, and the love their family has for each other.

The last few years in their family have been full of love and new babies, but also carried  with it some challenges. It is SO darn good to capture the good moments like these, to hang on to and joyfully remember during the hard days.

These years go by so fast, it’s such a blessing to capture these new treasures for them!



Fall Family Mini Session // Battle Ground, Wa

Oh my heart!! I’ve had the joy of capturing this sweet family for many years…since the two girls were just babies, and the handsome boy was not yet in the picture!  It’s been so fun to get to know them over the years, and watch their family grow. These kids are a nice as they are cute!! They were such great sports on a VERY chilly morning, but didn’t mind cuddling up in these cute blankets and smiling and giggling together.


Maren Class of 2018 // Portland Or Senior Portraits

I really love capturing senior sessions! It’s such a momentous year, as students finish their final year of high school, and Maren was no different! I loved listening to her dreams of going to New York for college, and hearing about what she enjoys most in school (theater!). I had the joy of capturing Maren’s sisters wedding just a week later, and I have to say…I fell in love with her whole family!

For her senior session, we planned a fun city session, in the Pearl District of Portland with an urban feel to reflect Maren’s personality. I love love love when seniors choose somewhere that suits them so well! I so enjoyed spending an afternoon with Maren, a beauty inside and out!

Here’s a few of my faves from her session:

Grace Senior 2017 | Vancouver, Wa

I had the joy of hanging out with Grace a couple of weeks ago to capture this fun chapter of entering her senior year at Skyview High School! She is just the cutest thing!

Senior sessions are so fun, and always a good reminder to me, that these years go by so fast with our kids. And before we know it, we are sending them off for the final year of high school!



Kevin & Hollie | Novelty Hill-Januik Winery Wedding Woodinville, Wa

Kevin & Hollie’s wedding day was so full of joy, smiles, and laughter by everyone who was there! My assistant Rachel & I left with huge (tired) smiles on our faces. As I edited these photos, my face hurt from smiling. From the moment we arrived for getting ready photos, the room was full of easy laughter and delighted giggles. The whole day at the winery flowed just like that, Kevin & Hollie going with the flow, totally enjoying the time together with their loved ones.

I hope this sneak peek puts a smile on your face as you catch a glimpse of their day!

A Fresh Start

Well, hello friends! It’s a brand new blog!

There was a mishap with my blog hosting and all of my previous blog archives were lost. I am so sad about it! All my years of documenting my adventures and experiences with all my lovely clients have disappeared. But, I am looking forward to building brand new content! I also plan to go back and repost some of my faves from years gone by.

I also plan to share a bit more of my life here on the blog. Things are changing around here this coming season. For the first time in 13 years…I will have all kiddos in school for a few hours a day! I’m not gonna lie…I’m pretty happy about it! I’m hoping that those few precious extra hours will give me a little bit of time for blogging more frequently about my adventures in photography, adulting, and what’s going on my life.

In the mean time, if you are looking for more info about photography services, you can pop over to my website ErynKesler.com for info or email me!


Thanks for visiting! xoxo Eryn
