Hello. Jessi & Race here.

And we’re the dynamic power-couple behind Outlive Creative.

We grew up documenting life's raw moments. We made home videos and shot film, so naturally we have an affinity for all things grainy and priceless. When we met in 2014, we fell in love and merged our wedding photography (Jessi) and cinematography (Race) skills together and by the end of 2015 we shaped Outlive Creative.

Outlive is the culmination of a deep passion for art, the outdoors, music, and appreciation for clean and timeless design and aesthetic. Our company was founded on the purpose of delivering solid, beautiful, and cohesive photos and videos. We are not a photo company who offers video as an add on or vice versa. We are equally a photo company as we are a video company.

Our photography and videography style is timeless, stylish, and relevant. Our approach is journalistic with an obsessive focus to detail, light, composition, balance, and aesthetic. We utilize gorgeous - available - natural light to the best of our ability. We are passionate about the outdoors and love to incorporate the environment into our couples photos and videos to place context to the story. We are very intentional about creating a product that will Outlive the test of time and be relevant 10-20 years from now.

We want you to experience our passion for capturing moments with us and we want to be your wedding or elopement photo and video team. We’re stoked to hear from you, so let’s connect and see if we would be a good fit for each other!

 

 

MEET JESSI

"I fell in love with photography in 1996. I 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, lived in Arizona until I was 7, raised in the San Francisco East Bay, and currently reside in Portland, OR. My passion centers on creating photographs showcasing love, life, experiences and real moments. I love music, I love to hike, explore, snowboard, travel and spend time with my 7 year old daughter, Zoey Rae and my fur baby, Shasta. I can never have enough plants, I am in love with interior decorating, and I appreciate clean and minimalistic design and style."

MEET RACE

"I was born in Alaska and grew up in a small and humble town in Oregon called, Scio. I discovered my interest for making videos in sixth grade when I started skateboarding. 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 playing professional paintball, drumming in a band, skateboarding, and traveling. 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 explore mountains, ride powder, travel, shoot photos, and spend time with Jess, Zoey, and my Mini Aussie, Shasta."
