When I started this little photography business, it was only natural for me to take a piece of that little girl that Mama and Papa called ‘Feedle Dee’ who was always found flipping through photo albums, and merge her with the woman that appreciated capturing those moments just as much.

Hey there everybody!
First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking time to peruse my new website and blog. It means the absolute world and more to me that you have taken time to do so. I wanted to take the opportunity with this first blog (and you guys, I’m totally new to this blog life so hang with me ha) to introduce who I am, and who my sidekick AKA my handsome hubby is!
Basically, this is us – Felicia and Eric! Some kind of coffee in our hands (usually a Dutch Bros non-fat Annihilator in my hand and a Mocha Freeze in Eric’s), enjoying each other’s company, and making each other laugh. We both feel that laughter is truly the best medicine and life would be so boring without it. When you meet us and/or work with us you’ll find out that we love to get to know your story, care about who you are, and will do whatever we need to to make you laugh!
Our little back story: Eric and I met towards the end of 2012 at a fire station that he interned at for 4 years. He invited me over to watch an Oregon State football game (we’re BIG Beaver fans) with his fire station buddies, we connected instantly, and within a couple months of hanging out we officially started dating. We dated several years and then a few days after my 31st birthday he proposed to me on the Oregon Coast – a very special spot at the coast that my parents and I frequented when I was a little kid. *HAPPY TEARS* Exactly two months later we tied the knot at a sweet little local park. We had a very small and intimate ceremony (it was basebal themed – you’ll learn that we’re giant sports fans) surrounded by our immediate family. We had a short engagement because two very special people in our lives were very fragile. My Mama and one of Eric’s Grandma’s. Six months and 1 day after we got married my biggest blessing and cheerleader, My Mama, passed away. Not long after Eric’s Grandma became more fragile and passed away earlier this year. We are SO glad we decided to get married when we did because we truly needed those important people there with us.
Here are just a few photos from our wedding day:
And here we are getting towards the end of 2019 so very grateful for all that life has given us the past few years. An amazing photography and videography business that has seen so much amazing growth since it began, the perfect starter home we’ve gotten to call our own, the BEST Chocolate Lab pup named Seager, and many, many other things!
Here’s Eric with Seager because, well, he’s the best pup and we LOVE dogs!
For the sake of this being a huge novel right out the gate I will leave you with just a few more fun facts about Eric and I:
-As I mentioned before, we’re giant sports fans! We’re avid supporters of these teams: Oregon State Beavers (all sports!), Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees (Eric, not so much me ha), Seattle Seahawks, and the Portland Trailblazers.
-We are obsessed with all things Disney and yes, we definitely signed up for Disney Plus! Our favorite rides are Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Test Track, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Slinky Dog Dash. Eric loves Donald and I love Goofy, and we go nuts for the Halloween and Christmas parties at the park!
– I grew up singing with my parent’s Dixieland Jazz band which performed in Japan twice and up and down the West Coast. I also played softball for more years than I can count. Eric grew up playing with firetrucks and was a very talented baseball player! Had he not torn his rotator cuff in high school who knows where he’d be playing today!
THANK YOU for hanging around and reading a little bit about us. I’m excited to start blogging more. Let me know in the comments what you’d like to see me blog more about (I’ll for sure be blogging sessions/weddings.) Also, drop a little fun fact about you in the comments too!! We can’t wait to get to know you better and take you along for the ride of our business and life!
All my best,
