Venturing Vows

Based In: Oregon

I’m Mikalynn (aka Miki) and I’m so excited that you’re here! I’m based on the southern portion of the Oregon Coast. This has always been one of my very favorite spots and it is a truly stunning backdrop to any elopement.

Adventure and authenticity drive me and I hope to bring those two elements to your special day. Your wedding should be everything you’ve ever dreamed of and more. Your day is a clean slate that you can fill with whatever will fill your soul. You have the freedom to abandon everything your wedding is “supposed to” be and embrace everything it could be.

Each relationship is so unique and special. You’ve put in so much work to build your relationship and now you’re taking the huge leap to marriage! Your wedding should be true to you and what you’ve built together. One of my goals as a photographer is to capture the simple, natural moments of your relationship. My photos focus on capturing moments between the two of you that regularly happen and not forced poses. It feels like a disservice to what you’ve built to photograph anything except your love in its most genuine form.

It’s truly my passion to ensure each couple I work with gets the wedding of their dreams. Throw out any tradition you don’t want and add in any activity you love. I eloped myself on the Oregon Coast so I’ve been where you are. It’s tough to lean away from tradition but it’s oh so worth it.

Mikalynn is the best photographer I know! Her photography skills are amazing, and she is fun to work with. She is always accommodating, professional, and enthusiastic during any photography sessions. She does whatever she has to do to get the perfect picture. From taking pictures in blizzard conditions, to climbing in a tree to get the perfect framing, to even hiding on the side of a rocky hill to get the surprise engagement photos. She even takes on the challenging task of including dogs in sessions. All the while, she is capturing amazing moments that will last forever. Her enthusiasm is contagious during any of her photography sessions. I always felt as though she wanted the most amazing pictures as much as -and sometimes maybe even more than- I did. This enthusiasm along with her overall kind attitude has always eased my nerves and made me enjoy the fun adventure the photo shoot becomes. Doing this also allows her to capture real pictures of us being happy together instead of more staged photos in which we are forcing smiles. She captures moments of genuine happiness in beautiful scenery. While I love her outdoor sessions of events that can and should become a beautiful, intimate adventure like an elopement or an engagement, I will always recommend Mikalynn to be your photographer at any event. She is absolutely worth investing your time, money, and trust.

We hired Miki last minute after covid changed our wedding plans from a 150 person party in Eugene to an intimate elopement in Mt Hood. I could not have been more overjoyed with stumbling upon Venturing Vows! From the moment we booked her, Miki showed such passion for not only being a great photographer, but for making our day as special as it could possibly be. She went above and beyond to research beautiful hikes in the area for us to have a photo adventure and she was extremely responsive with communication while the rain kept shifting our plans. She even brought extra tools to entertain our new puppy! Miki was a joy to be around the day-of and her work flowed seamlessly into our activities. We had a great time taking photos with her! Of course one of the most important things is that the photos are BEAUTIFUL! She captured things just as I would have hoped, and used different styles to ensure that the details and the important moments were well documented. Definitely the best investment of our wedding. Thank you, Miki!
