Not my usual sort of post, but I had to share this! My husband, Thom Lyons will be opening for THE @rachaelyamagata at @oldchurchpdx on March 7th!!! Seriously can't wait for this show. Thom will be singing with the crazy talented @marialytle for the first time in concert. I've heard them practicing in my livingroom and y'all are in for a treat! If you're in the Portland area on March 7th you should most definitely go to this show. Get your tickets now because the will sell out (if they haven't already). You can get tickets by going to the link in @thomlyons bio. See you there! PS. I took the photo of Thom, but I'm not sure who to give credit for the lovely photo of Rachael. . . . . #whitneylyonsphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #oregonphotographer #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #muscian #supportmusic #supportlocalartists #supportlocalmusic #pdxmusic #portlandphotographer #portraitkillers #portraitphotography #moodyports #lovephotography #musicmakestheworldgoround #pnwlife #pnwportraitphotographer #makeportraits #pnwportraits #portlandmusic #portlandmusicians #lovemusic #singersongwriter #folkmusic #indiemusic #pop

So excited to have just booked my first destination wedding for 2019! As I've mentioned before, I LOVE to travel and am more than happy to photograph your wedding or elopement wherever it may be. Wedding photography has taken me all over the PNW, Mexico, London, Vegas, Georgia and more. Thank you so much to all the awesome couples out there who have trusted me to capture one of the most important days in their lives. @dunnmoll I can't wait to capture your amazing day and am absolutely swooning over your venue choice of Sandy Creek Barn in Greensboro GA! Give me all the beautiful barns to photograph weddings in! 😍 Continuing to book 2019 weddings and I have some 2018 weddings left! DM me for details and inquiries. . . . . . #whitneylyonsphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #radlovestories #belovedstories #lovephotography #pnwweddingphotographer #muchlove_ig #elopementphotographer #destinationweddings #destinationweddingphotographer #wildlifewildsouls #happilyeverwild #adventurouswedding #adventurebrides #pnwbrides #wanderingphotographers #dirtybootsandmessyhair #pnwlife #pnwwonderland #portlandphotographer #firstandlasts #authenticlovemag #junebugwedding #lookslikefilmwedding #loveandwildhearts #heyheyhellomay #helloadventure #portlandbride

I've never done this so I guess I should introduce myself! Now the line "just let me introduce myself" is running through my head and I am singing the Humpty Dance song, which totally ages me. I'm Whitney, the face behind the camera (where I prefer to be, hence the late introduction). I'm married to British rockstar @thomlyons so I can happily check that off my childhood dream list. When I'm not taking photos, I'm tackling the next DIY project on our home or dreaming up the next big plan I have to add the 'modern' to our cute mid-century house (Insert husband's eye roll here). I'm a native Oregonian who has traveled the globe and has lived in 4 countries. I continue to travel as much as possible. Iceland is at the top of my list to visit now. Snow peas and sushi are my favorite foods. Almost Famous is the best movie ever made. I knew it was true love with my husband when he also thought this to be true. I am always up for an adventure but have grown to love staying in and having game nights with friends where we have a few drinks and talk about what our cute animals did that day. Enough about me. Tell me a little bit about yourself! 📸 @laurakathryn1012 . . . . #whitneylyonsphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #oregonphotographer #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #chasinglight #discoveroregon #bestoforegon #lovephotography #portlandphotographer #pnwlife #pnwwonderland #portlandbride #bendbride #destinationweddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #intimateweddings #adventurebrides #adventureweddings #pnwportraitphotographer #shesaidyes #fridayintroduction #thisisme #portlandweddingphotographer #pnwelopement

I love being a tourist is my own state. I think most of us look to exotic destinations far from home when vacationing. I know I do - and to be honest it's one of my favorite pastimes. But whenever I have visitors stay with us, I love to take the opportunity to see my home through their eyes and experience things and places that I take advantage of living in such an amazing place. . . . . #whitneylyonsphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #oregonphotographer #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #chasinglight #discoveroregon #bestoforegon #exploregon #pnwlife #pnwwonderland #portlandphotographer #pnw #communityovercompetition #lookslikefilm #pnwportraitphotographer #lovephotography #elopementphotographer #destinationweddings #indiewedding #bohoweddings #getoutside #wanderlust #traveloregon #cannonbeach #oregoncoast

Time to celebrate! I'm picking my best friend up at the airport tomorrow and I can not wait!!! Together we've survived 4 years of college, two months traveling around Europe, the NY blackout and so much more. Really, it's amazing we're still going strong after some MAJOR mishaps on our travels. We should write a book. But those crazy "we barely survived that, what were we thinking" stories make the best memories. Am I right? Can't wait for some new shenanigans @laurakathryn1012 ! And thanks to my other best friend @mynameisnikiniki and her rad husband, Ade for rocking this photo and throwing one of the best parties England's ever had! . . . . #whitneylyonsphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #chasinglight #discoveroregon #bestoforegon #lovephotography #lookslikefilm #bendweddingphotographer #bendbride #portlandbride #mountainbride #heyheyhellomay #indiewedding #bohoweddings #wanderingphotographers #adventurouswedding #helloadventure #dirtybootsandmessyhair #intimateweddingphotographer #wildlifewildsouls #happilyeverwild #muchlove_ig #elopementphotographer #destinationweddings #discoveroregon #pnwlife #pnwwonderland #portlandphotographer

Today is a great day. My mom has officially finished all of her chemo rounds and her radiation is done. She has a cute pixie cut and her hair is salt and pepper rather than her signature blonde I've known my whole life, but I love it. She's looking forward to not feeling like crap. I would post a photo of her but she's camera shy so she's a hard one to capture. Instead I'll share these happy tears from one of my all time favorite weddings. Happy Saturday friends! . . . . . #whitneylyonsphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #oregonphotographer #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #chasinglight #loveinthepnw #lovephotography #lovebig #authenticlovemag #portlandbride #mountainbride #heyheyhellomay #indiewedding #bohoweddings #wanderingphotographers #pnwlife #helloadventure #dirtybootsandmessyhair #intimateweddingphotographer #oregonbride #destinationweddingphotographer #muchlove_ig #lookslikefilmwedding #loveandwildhearts #wildlifewildsouls #happilyeverwild #pnwportraitphotographer #elopementphotographer #cancersucks

I love listening to my iPod (yes I still have one!) on random and every few songs my friends start to sing to me. I am in aww of all of the talented people in my life and those that I've meet along life's path. Go out and support your favorite local musician this weekend. Happy Friday! . .

Yesterday I was in a huge funk. I couldn't pinpoint what exactly was bothering me - it was just EVERYTHING. I was in a "why should I bother with photography - everyone is so much better than me" kinda mood. I was even taking the old "follow/unfollow" people like to do to heart. I am generally an easy going, happy individual - this is NOT the normal me friends and I was annoying myself. Then I realized I hadn't worked out in 3 days because I'd been busy with work and was putting everything else before physical activity. This REALLY effects me. Today I woke up to surprisingly sunny skies and took my dog for a run. I feel re-energized and my state of mind is back intact. Tomorrow I'm giving @orangetheory a try for the first time. I've been hearing amazing things about them and am really looking forward to trying it out. Who else goes to Orange Theory or has tried it out? Do you get in a weird funk if you haven't worked out or is it just me?! . . . . . #whitneylyonsphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #oregonphotographer #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #chasinglight #discoveroregon #bestoforegon #lovephotography #pnwportraitphotographer #pnwlife #pnwwonderland #portlandphotographer #lookslikefilm #traveloregon #localmusicians #adventureportraits #getoutside #wanderlust #elopementphotographer #destinationweddingphotographer #pnwbrides #portlandbride #getactive #adventurouswedding #adventureawaits

This morning I watched the news. I really shouldn't have. I cried when I heard the heartbreaking stories happening around the world and I cried again during a happy story. I'll just be over here wiping my tears off the floor for the remainder of the day! Geez! I'm now in my happy place editing happy people madly in love. I think that's part of why I love my job so much. There's so much good out there in the world and I'm reminded of it everyday. #whitneylyonsphotography #loveinthepnw #pnwphotographer #bendphotographer #chasinglight #discoveroregon #communityovercompetition #elopementphotographer #destinationweddings #weddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #authenticlovemag #muchlove_ig #intimatewedding #heyheyhellomay #helloadventure #dirtybootsandmessyhair #wanderingphotographers #radlovestories #belovedstories #lovephotography #proposal #bohoweddings #indiewedding #Adventurouswedding #lookslikefilmwedding #loveandwildhearts #bohobride #portlandbride #mountainbride
