You’ll gain not just a photographer, but a creative partner. Someone who collaborates with you, bringing ideas to life in ways that exceed expectations and spark continuous inspiration and innovation for your brand.

Meet Your Brand Photographer

It was in the dimly lit corners of a high school darkroom, where the magic of photography first unfolded for me. As I progressed in life, I navigated a diverse range of professional realms—working in graphic design, elementary education, and event styling. Through all of these careers, photography remained the constant pulse of my creativity. In 2017, I decided to take the knowledge I built in events, design, and education and my skill as a photographer into my full-time business – founding Summer Hughes Photo + Film. Since then, my work as a Portland Oregon photographer has evolved and been driven by the profound realization that my art was not only about capturing moments, but about crafting visual legacies, ones that resonate with the core of the client’s identity and translate into the heart of their brand.

My Approach Is Simple

Capture the little details, beauty of light, and human connection

My job as a lifestyle photographer in Portland Oregon is to capture authentic moments, a glimpse into the real you. I don’t tell people how to smile or act. Instead, I create an experience in which people can just be themselves, product can stand on it’s own, and interiors are respected for their character. 

My style is to gently direct, capture what unfolds, and let the beauty of your life shine.
