- Nick + Amee
Connecting with others is at the core of all relationships and your own love story. Similarly, it is really important to me that I get to know you as people and we build a wonderful, trusting connection so I can capture your love story in the most authentic way possible. If you are looking for a hands-off person with a camera to simply show up, be a fly on the wall and leave never to be heard from again - I might not be your photographer. But...
From our first contact, you can expect excellent communication, a safe space for all the feelings and emotions that come with this pivotal time in your life and your own hype woman who has your back no matter what challenges arise during your planning process. I got you!
Attention to Details. From the start I am noting all those special details that make you, you! And thinking of ways to incorporate them into your wedding experience.
Organized, Planner Mindset. I am all about having a fun relaxed day, but when will the fun be starting? Where are we heading? What time is sunset? ;) These are all the things I put together to create an awesome experience for you!
Creative Storytelling. Your day is unique to you and I love that! Customizing how I document your day to capture your most authentic self is what I live for.
Open Book. I want you to have the best day possible and will gladly share any and all info to help your dream day come to life!
Can-do Attitude! Have some bumps in the road during planning or day of? No problem! We are going to make this work and better yet - we are going to make it awesome!
Love Forward Thinking. In everything, your love story and relationship together come first. :)
Communication is key! From inquiry to photo delivery and beyond - clear, real and honest communication is a staple of Myrtle Creative Co!
Experience. Let's face it, I have been doing this for a while. I have connections, tons of ideas, insight, am reliable and I have been married for 13 years so I get the many facets of a long-term relationship.
Hello! It's me,
Close your eyes and imagine for a moment your ideal wedding or elopement. Imagine the sights and sounds. Who will be there with you? What does your day include? How do you want your day to feel? And what memories do you want to make?
These are the questions I care about as I learn more about you and your unique dream day because just as no two couples are the same, no two wedding or elopement days are the same. And that is what I am here for! Your unique touches, moments, and experience. Your day is more than just your ceremony when you say 'I do.' And it is definitely not a 'photo shoot'.
This is your wedding day. The day you marry your best friend. The day that begins the rest of your life together, no matter how many years you have already been together or how cliche that sounds, it is still true. This is a celebration of your love and you get to choose how you spend it. No need to incorporate traditions just for traditions sake - do what is true to you and your relationship.
Not sure how to incorporate something? Or need inspiration to create your unique day? That's one of the many things I am here to help you with! Myrtle Creative Co. is all about...

What is your Approach to Photography?
I am a storyteller at heart and am all about capturing your day fully. I will not disrupt organic moments to make them more 'perfect' but rather document them authentically. Real life isn't perfect and that is beautiful. :)
What if we feel awkward in front of the camera?
Not to worry - I got you! From building a relationship with you in advance to guiding you in a natural way on your day I will make sure you are comfortable in front of the camera. I certainly have a few tricks up my sleeve to make photo time super fun for you!
What is your Included Travel Range?
I include travel within all of Oregon and Washington in my regular pricing because as a native Oregonian, I love the entire PNW and have experience in many areas. While based in NW Oregon I travel often to southern Oregon, Seattle, Northern WA and more.
Do you do Destination Weddings and Elopements?
Yes! I would love to chat about your plans and provide a custom quote for your destination wedding! I love traveling and travel often on my own as well. In fact, my husband and I lived and travelled nomadically for 4 years and I have vast experience in a variety of areas such as Moab, Sedona, Zion, etc.
How do Payments work?
A 30% retainer is required at time of signing to officially book your day. The remainder is then broken into to 50/50 payments including a midway payment with final due day before your wedding. All payments are secure, online and you can even set up auto-pay.
What are the next steps?
If interested in working with me (yay!), the next step is to inquire via my Contact page. I can confirm if I’m available for your wedding date, schedule a chat. answer any questions you may have, and start the all-important “getting to know you” process.
"We can't thank her enough for her amazing attention to detail, organization, and absolutely beautiful photographs. Her industry knowledge blew us away. The whole experience with her was so fun and she showed to be such a professional.
She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and was truly prepared for anything (like last min bouquet tosses with a centerpiece). Plus, our crazy bridal party adored her! She truly contributed to making our day special.
We are so grateful for you Ann Marie! Thank you!"
"From the minute we got on the phone I felt like I had hit the Jack pot. My wedding photos were so important to me because these photos will be what are passed down in my family from generation to generation. I wanted the best and I found her. Not only did she take jaw dropping photos of the groom and I but she really captured the decor, my family etc.
She also helped me every step of my day. She spent time with me on the phone planning my entire itinerary and knew exactly what I wanted and had a plan to execute it. She made me feel so comfortable and handled business. When any problem arose she jumped to fix it! She even had extra special things to make my day unique. It was truly remarkable watching her work. She knows what’s up!!!!!"
