Hi!  My name is Kathy and I specialize in weddings + elopements in The Gorge on both the Washington + Oregon sides.  I am based out of the Hood River / The Dalles area of The Gorge and if you have never been here it truly is a special + beautiful place.  I have been a professional photographer for just over 13 years.  I started my business in the greater Boston area (Massachusetts/New Hampshire) moving out to the Pacific Northwest about 5 years ago.  


I photograph all kinds of things from fashion + fitness models to families, high school seniors, small businesses and marriages.  Over the years I have had work featured in WellWed, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, WedVenture as well as some smaller local publications in New England and the PNW.  


My style of photography is a combination of natural, photojournalistic and fine art.  Please take a look through my images here in addition to my instagram ( @kathypothierphotography ).  My favorite weddings + elopements have the majority, if not all, of their day outside.  I enjoy capturing everything from simple + elegant garden weddings to bold colors with funky fashion on the water to hiking through the woods to a favorite waterfall or river view for an intimate elopement.  I crave variety and truly enjoy fun couples.  Please note that all couples are welcome.  I firmly believe that love is love and it is beautiful. 


All Best,
