Campfire Inspiration

Oak & Ivy Photography is born from countless conversations around a campfire in the back-country, fueled by coffee and BIG dreams.  

We designed our business in the image of our core values which translates to a commitment to family, building deep relationships, authentic story telling, fearless pursuit of adventure, living outside of our comfort zones, nurturing our environment, using our gifts to enrich our local community and belly laughing on the daily. (Oh, and drinking coffee. Seriously, ALL the coffee.)

Authentic Story Telling

Every human being has a spark. A certain  je ne sais quoi that makes them unique and that's exactly what we hunt for, nurture and capture!

Whether we're shooting an adventure elopement, a senior photo session, a moto-venture, a family session or a product line, we are fierce in our determination to tell YOUR story; to capture your love, your passion, your joy, your angst, your reckless abandon, your creativity, your love for donuts, vinyl, tattoos, ants...whatever it is that makes you feel authentic.

Fortune Favors the Bold

We LOVE the PNW and find so much creative fuel here. 

We are based in Yakima, WA; the Fruit Basket of Washington State, which is the perfect launching point for our adventures in photography. 

We've been invited to shoot adventure elopements all over the PNW,  Utah, Nevada, New York and a handful of international locations. 

Our clients take us trudging up muddy trails in search of breathtaking vistas,  frolicking in the ocean dressed to the nines just to get that one bucket-list shot, twisting the throttle down a dirt road or winding through single track on their dirt bikes,  even getting married waaaaaaay up in the tippy top of the tree canopy.  

We haven't encountered an adventure we weren't willing to take on, so do your worst and invite us along! Photos or it didn't happen!!


When we're not out on location, we can be found hiking with our dogs, dirt biking, celebrating the success of our kids, skiing, fishing, enjoying the respite of our apple orchard, frequenting some local pubs, sweating at our favorite CrossFit gym, hosting dinner parties and game nights with our family, kicking back with a good book and some of our homemade vino letting the vinyl spin; ultimately maximizing the deposits we make in our memory banks, together. (Did I mention we drink a lot of coffee?)

So, what are you waiting for?! Send us a message so we can be bold together!
