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.
