WHO ARE WE?
Hi guys! Jessi and Race here. After working separately in the wedding industry for over 16+ years we met each other, fell in love and knew we had something amazing to offer to the industry and to the world. We wanted to merge our styles + our experienced and refined skills to shape Outlive Creative:
A fresh and new destination wedding and elopement company who is EQUALLY skilled in both photography & videography.
Outlive is the culmination of a deep passion for art, the outdoors, music, and clean aesthetic.
"I fell in love with photography 22 years ago and am especially drawn to medium format photography in which I love to implement into my wedding and portrait work. I was born in Denver, Co was raised in the San Francisco East Bay and currently reside in Portland, Oregon. My passion centers on creating photographs showcasing love, life, experiences and real moments. I love music (not the popular type), I love to hike, explore, snowboard, travel and spending time with my 5 year old daughter, Zoey Rae. I can never have enough plants, I am in love with interior decorating, and I appreciate clean and minimalistic design and style." - Jess
"I grew up in Oregon, in a small and humble town called, Scio. I discovered my interest for cinematography in seventh grade. Before I earned my video production degree, I spent three years working and snowboarding on Mount Hood. During my youth and young adult years, I enjoyed life as a professional paintballer, band member, skateboarder, and world traveler. As my craft matured, I found myself filming all of these subjects of interest, eventually leading me to find my love for cinematography. Aside from filming, I like to hike, explore mountains, snowboard, travel, shoot photos, and spend time with Zoey and my Mini Aussie, Shasta." - Race
