Peter Mahar Photography is a wedding photography business operating out of Oregon City, Oregon. Operated by a husband-and-wife team - Peter and Susannah - this service aims to give couples exactly the photos they want for their special occasion. A personable, friendly, and easy-going pair, Peter and Susannah enjoy taking photos of newlyweds who plan original and distinctive weddings that brim with meaning.
This couple of photographers enjoy capturing the natural and unscripted moments at weddings. Owing to their ability to switch styles (they can produce contemporary, natural, and photojournalistic photos), they know how to create diverse photo albums. Their main mission is to allow couples to feel at ease - and this means that they can document the candid smiles and the in-between moments. They offer two distinctive wedding packages so that clients can choose the one that best suits them. With the first option, couples can benefit from one photographer, eight hours of coverage, up to 600 images, web galleries, prints, and delivery of images. Their second choice provides an extra photographer, up to 1,000 pictures, plus everything from the first offering.
Conveniently, Peter Mahar Photography can also provide customized packages for elopements. Additionally, for those who would like a photo booth at their wedding, Peter and Susannah can supply one as an extra. They also offer three engagement session packages which can last between 30 minutes and two hours. Other services available include:

Our experience with Peter Mahar photography was exceptional and completely above our expectations. The photos Peter and Susannah took captured more than just the activity of the day but so many of the emotions, special moments, and love that we felt. Working with them was a pure joy and their love for what they do shines through in their work. We and our guests felt very comfortable with them and they kept such a fun and relaxed vibe the whole day. They listened and were able to really capture what we were hoping to have as keepsakes from the day. Everyone who sees our photos can't believe how beautiful and alive they are, and on top of that how quickly and professionally everything was done. We did a lot of research before selecting our photographer and have to say without a doubt that paid off and we had the most outstanding pictures and experience with Peter Mahar. We would absolutely recommend Peter's work to anyone who wants their pictures to be more than photos, and instead tell the beautiful story of your special day.Sent on 01/18/2015

The absolute best
I can’t recommend Peter & Susannah enough as wedding photographers. (In fact, I already have—our friends got their engagement photos done with them and loved them!) I hate having my picture taken and almost always feel awkward. My husband and I had SO MUCH FUN taking pictures both for our engagement and wedding. Peter is fantastic about coaching shots, giving you an idea of what to do and where to look, and most importantly—what to do with your hands. He will quite literally climb rocks or dive onto the ground to get the right shot. On the day of our wedding, Peter and Susannah showed up right on time and dressed professionally. My wedding coordinator was essentially nonexistent, and Peter stepped in and took over that role. He had my schedule printed out and in hand the whole time, making sure the day went smoothly. From the first look to the ceremony to the reception, it flowed exactly how I wanted. We just got our photos back and I cried. I didn’t even cry on my wedding day! They were absolutely perfect. Not just the way that they were edited and posed, but the way that he captured all of the emotion and joy of the day. There are moments that I didn’t even really remember because I was so caught up in everything—but Peter and Susannah were there to make sure I can remember them forever. I have had multiple people tell me that these were the best engagement/wedding photos they’ve ever seen. I’m biased, but I agree. They gave me about twice as many photos as I was expecting, and I love them all! Now I just need Instagram to lift their posting limit so I can blow everyone up with these incredible pictures. Thank you, Peter & Susannah!!!! You are AMAZING!Sent on 08/29/2019

Peter was the BEST!
Peter was so easy to work with, especially for a destination wedding! He met us over FaceTime, and invested in getting to know us so he could really get the best shots for us. He was great with our family too, and not intrusive at all. The photos were early, and amazing! He shared over a blog post right away as well as an easy digital link to download. We are so happy with everything - he and his team are very talented. Highly recommend.Sent on 08/13/2019
Peter and his wife photographed an event here at Lakeside Gardens this Summer, and I hope to see them here again soon! Peter was organized, professional, and very friendly. His turn-around on editing the photos was lightening quick, and they were beautiful! I would feel confident recommending him to our brides!
Peter and his wife are amazing! They are so happy and genuine and it's absolutely contagious when your with them.
