Welcome! My name is Mario D. Vaden. I live in the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon, with my wife Jan. We moved south in 2016 for a more relaxed environment than Beaverton, which used to be rural. My interest in photography all began in Redwood National and State Parks forest, eventually evolving into portraits too. A lot of my photography is outdoors but indoor space is available. I photograph engagements, weddings, seniors, head shots, maternity, individuals and families. I'm also open to sports, entertainers and small events. Let me know what you need for time, location and images because cost is flexible. I prefer a flat rate and offer individual pricing. Minimum starts at $50 to $100 and the rest falls somewhere between $100 to $2000 plus ... All I need are a few minutes to understand your event and needs first. Our email is meant for things like sharing of sample images, lists or directions. Quotes require a phone call, because it's far more efficient.
My photography includes both natural light and supplemental, with portable lights to provide or enhance light as needed. Scroll down for a few more images.
