A Love Story

I love this.  So much.

Angela and John (known as “Fuzz”) hosted a tiny, beautiful, HOT wedding at Alloro Vinyard in Sherwood.  Angela took great care with all her details, and this is my absolute favorite thing she had out at the reception.  They have a fab love story.

So, while these two lovebirds sipped Moscow Mules in beautiful copper cups, chatted with their guests during an exquisite sunset, served wine and cake and beautiful food, everyone had a chance to remember how perfectly ridiculous and ridiculously perfect love can be, and how meeting your favorite person can be a complicated matter.

Bridal Party Photo Deyla Huss Photography

This lovely bridal party were soaking in the sun rays during what was probably one of the coldest days we had in a while in West Linn, Oregon and they toughed it out for some gorgeous bridal party photos outside per request by the bride. And to top it off their stunning gold Badly Mischka Sequin dresses really sparkled in the sunshine!

Making sure you get plenty of photos with your bridal party before the hustle and bustle of the day is something that you will remember always, laughing and sharing stories and helping each other get dressed and so on is what is all about.

Enjoy those sun rays, laugh a lot, and embrace the day!

We make it a point at every wedding to shoot from as many angles and as many focal lengths as possible to produce a wide variety of imagery. We love the gazebo at the Abernethy Center – it is a beautiful space to make photos like this during the ceremony. We held a fisheye lens overhead on a monopod to capture a picture from as high as possible. To see more images from this wedding, visit the sneak peek album on Facebook.

South Waterfront Lifestyle Engagement Session

Portland is such a fun town to photograph in an offers so many opportunities for awesome imagery.  The newly renovated South Waterfront has provided some fun new perspectives of our expanding Rose City and is a great location for Lifestyle Engagement Sessions.  Our “Engagement Sessions” are actually “Lifestyle Sessions” as we go to greater lengths and commit more time into creating imagery. We take pride in creating art and feel that the better we know our couples, the more true their imagery will be.  Photography to us in not a mere business transaction.  We take time to get to know our clients, their chemistry and their story.  These lifestyle sessions may take a few hours, or may take the entire day.  We weave elements of their story into their imagery by including activities and environments that are true to them.  Environments play a large role in telling one’s story so we search for locations that make sense and matter to them. Hip Urban Scenes, breathtaking forests, waterfalls and romantic beaches are all at our fingertips for fun and unforgettable lifestyle sessions.

If you are looking for true, artful imagery to document the most important people, places and events in your life, give us a call!  We can’t wait to meet you!

putting on wedding shoes-davidbarssphotographerI love the focus and determination during the process of getting ready for the wedding day. Here as a bridesmaid is putting on the shoes of the bride you can see the moment in the poised tension of her feet, yet delicate touch of her hands.

Have a good one.

Confetti Cannons at a Wedding Reception

I love the expression of our amazing clients when the confetti cannons burst and brightly colored paper fluttered around them. It was fun to see the added flair throughout their wedding day that kept the fun flowing non-stop!

Ashlyn & Chad had a rockin’ first dance during their reception at the Benson Hotel.  It was incredibly fun to watch and the guests absolutely loved it.  A few twists and turns, some hands waving in the air, and lots and lots of laughter.

A special thanks to Ryan the DJ with a Perfect Memory Events.  Ryan is a true professional who really gets the dance party going and is very fun and interactive with the guests.  Following the couple’s first dance, Ryan kept the dance floor very active with guests of all ages.  It was an absolute blast.

Congratulations to Ashlyn & Chad!

The Aisle Walk is that great part of the day when you have made it past the hard work… nothing but good times ahead, right? Emotionally, this walk is a real mix for most people… sometimes the newlyweds are able to focus on the faces of their friends as they swing by and sometimes they are too stunned to focus on anything except getting out of sight for a few minutes. Mostly, I see huge amounts of joy and the camera loves that. ;0)

Personally, I think this is one of the best arguments for doing the formal group photos before the wedding. The Aisle Walk is the beginning of the face time with your guests and you can bet they are ready to get on with it! If you can dive right into the crowd during a cocktail hour, no one is going to feel left out. Receiving lines and bossy photographers can harsh that vibe in a heartbeat. Plan on getting the “business” photography out of the way early and then, if you and your photographer want a small session of relaxed portraits, it can be done easily.
A lot of my couples opt for a 15 minute session right before dinner… they get to have most of the cocktail hour and then when their guests are starting to jockey for a table, we head out into the softer light and get the romantic shots. Nobody misses you for that short time and, if you like, you can be announced to the crowd when you come back. Party on!

I love my job!

When Jessica and JR got married, they surprised a lot of people. But not in the way you might think. Continue reading →


I joined Megan & Max at Road’s End beach in Lincoln City for their tiny wedding/elopement in May.  It was the perfect afternoon–all high clouds and peeks of blue, a little bit of wind, and warm enough to enjoy it all without two jackets, gloves and a scarf.

I followed Megan and her dad down from the host beach house to the sand, and I love the look on Max’s face as he watches them approach: quiet, sweet and utterly smitten.

More of their images are here on my blog.

We’ve probably said it before: we love father and daughter pictures. This one, in particular, was one of our favorites from 2015. Christa and her dad walked candidly down the aisle, laughing with each other every step of the way, and then we caught them in this little pocket of sunlight.

Hair and Make Up, Please!  We love it when our clients take time for hair and make up before their portraits.  Wedding day or otherwise, we always see a huge difference in someone’s confidence when they have invested in extra care.  When you feel good, you look good, and that definitely shows in photos!  Hair and Make Up Artists enhance your best features which show favorably in your photos.  Photographers always appreciate photographing whats really there instead of trying to photoshop something later.  And when you are investing in professional photography – something that will last for generations – chances are, you will want to look your best!
