Who am I? A former Pulitzer nominated, state, regional, and national award winning photographer who loves doing pictures. That's why I'm so reasonably priced. Making and sharing art brings me joy. My joy in doing pictures shows through with what you get. My real start in photography, before going back to school to study photojournalism at San Francisco State, was by hanging out with friends in San Francisco and taking pictures of them partying. That was a long time ago. How long have I been doing pictures starting with my friends you ask? M.C Hammer was new and we were dancing to his music in the clubs.

Here's what you get: a super reasonable price for unlimited time at your wedding with my camera, my lights, and my thirty years of newspaper and wedding photography experience. After about a week (usually) you get about 150-200 fully edited and adjusted images to print, share, make into books or however you want. I can also make you exclusive bespoke wedding albums.

I do go on backpacking trips and to triathlon races around the world. Sometimes being gone or having plans takes away from weekend wedding time and getting the pictures back within about five days. Because of this, my wedding schedule fills up quickly.

Great to work with and amazing photos

Michelle and Pete were such fun to work with! For our engagement shoot they picked a lovely location and guided us through the whole process (we definitely needed help in the posing department!).

For our wedding Michelle was so great at keeping us on track timewise without feeling like we were being rushed or hurried! They both captured us and our once in a lifetime moments with some amazing photos! We especially loved the different shots that came from having both straight photos and ones with special lighting...we had many comments on how we looked like we were in a fariy tale!

Thank you Four Eyes Photography for giving us photos we will cherish and love for a lifetime!

Pete did an awesome job with our wedding photography! We got married in Bend although we live in Portland so we needed somebody who knew the area, was flexible, and would take awesome photos. Pete did it all (in 90+ degree weather) and had a smile on his face the whole time. Thanks Pete!

Pete was an exceptional find for our big day! He met with us beforehand to get to know us, our style, and what our expectations were. Our ceremony was outdoors in the rain. He was enthusiastic and found new artistic ideas everywhere that looked great. He was also very responsive to our ideas and positively influenced them. Out of every detail of our experience with Pete, we can't find anything negative to say. We highly recommend him for anyone else's special day.
