April Wiliams Photography specializes in weddings and portraits throughout the Vancouver, WA and Portland Metro area, as well as around the world.

What do I love about what I do?

Pretty much everything, but the best part is all of you. I consider it an incredible privilege to be invited into your weddings and lives, to share your moments and help you tell your stories. And, what amazing stories! I am blessed, no, lavished with amazing clients who share their lives with me and often become my friends. What isn’t there to love about that?!

Oh, and, yes, I’ve won awards (Portland Photographic Society and Bravo Weddings) and I’ve been doing this for a while, over 15 years and 300 weddings. I’m still crazy in love with my husband, Vince, after 20 years of marriage. I have a beautiful daughter, Paris, who I will never tire of making banana bread for. I live with my Russell terrier, Fitz, who loves new friends. And, I’m in love with anything Italian—in fact, I love to travel so much that even going to Iowa gets me excited (no offense Iowa).

But, enough about me, let’s talk about you.

Life as Art

It's more than my brand. It's my passion. But what does Life as Art mean?

We Find The Real

Real moments lead to real memories that matter. There is no need to generate or manufacture the beauty and realities of our lives. My job is just to capture the moments as they pass. I want you to feel comfortable and connected so that your photos showcase your unique story.

Classic Photography that lasts

With over 15 years of experience, I've seen photography trends come and go. But, the real goal of photography is to deliver memories that hold up to time. We tell the story that your event paints. Some are bright and colorful, while others are best shared in black & white. Whatever the feel we want it to hold up against the clock, so you can be proud of your memories as they grow farther into the distance.

Art made for Showcasing

I very much believe in the idea that photography was meant to be seen as art. Sure some photos are great for sharing via phone or looking at in a small frame. But some photography is at its best when delivered as artwork. Grand photos hanging on walls to be seen by everyone that comes into your home.
