Campfire Inspiration

Oak & Ivy Photography was born from countless back-country campfire musings, fueled by coffee and BIG dreams.  

We designed our wedding & destination adventure elopement photography business in the image of our core values - 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 photography session, 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 alive.

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. Being centrally located allows maximum flexibility and ease of travel to any adventure elopement or destination wedding location.

We also spend a lot of time in Pacific City, OR, enjoying the iconic Dory boat fleet, exploring the unimaginable natural beauty of the cliffs carved by the persistent waves of the Pacific and the hidden coves that inspire hushed tones and fiery kisses.

Our ideal clients are wildly in love, adventurous, nature lovers. They are happiest trudging up dirty, dusty, 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!!
