Portland Wedding Photographer Named 2021 Winner of The Knot Best of Weddings | Oregon

Winner of The Knot Best of Weddings 2021

15th Annual Awards Honor Top Wedding Vendors Across America

I am so pleased to announce that I have been selected as a 2021 ­­winner of The Knot Best of Weddings this award represents the highest- and most-rated wedding professionals as reviewed by real couples, their families and wedding guests.

Despite COVID-19 interrupting many 2020 weddings and social events, wedding professionals around the nation continued to support to-be-weds throughout their wedding planning journeys. From adjusting future schedules to make way for postponed weddings, to helping couples host socially distanced weddings following state and local guidelines and restrictions. Wedding pros—and the industry as a whole—rallied together in 2020, ultimately helping couples continue to celebrate life and love. The Knot 2021 Best of Weddings recognition honors the vendors who went above and beyond to help couples navigate the global pandemic.

I found Cambrae at The Portland Bridal show, and my (now) husband and I are so glad I did. With everything that 2020 has put us through and all the changes we had to make to still be able to have our wedding this year, we have been able to rely on Cambrae through it all. She was clear and precise with all the planning parts, while also being very fun to work with. She helped us consider all the different aspects we should consider for our wedding day and to plan out the different photos we wanted to make sure to get. On the day of our wedding she came up with so many great poses and shots, while happily embracing our personal requests, and capturing so many amazing candid moments. My husband and I are extremely happy with the photos that Cambrae produced, and that she was able to capture so many great moments to help us remember such a wonderful day.

In 2021, only five percent of hundreds of thousands of local wedding professionals listed on The Knot received this distinguished award. In its fifteenth annual year, The Knot continues its long-standing tradition of supporting local wedding vendors with The Knot Best of Weddings 2021, an annual by-couples, for-couples guide to the top wedding professionals across the country. This comes as the industry waits to prepare for an increase in upcoming celebrations due to postponed events throughout 2020 and the continued pandemic.

She is phenomenal!  Not only do we LOVE our wedding photos, but she made the entire process so wonderful!  She honestly made taking pictures so fun.  My now-husband is very uncomfortable taking photos, and he loved it!  He said it was one of his favorite parts of our wedding day, and I agreed!  She is so fun, and and not only blessed us with lifetime memories of our wedding day, but made memories in the process too!  We loved her as our photographer, and we absolutely recommend her, hands-down.  Every part of the process was easy, fun, and better than even imagined!  And we have so many beautiful photos from our perfect day--how could anyone ask for anything more?!

I absolutely loved working with Cambrae!  She is friendly and fun to work with, but also very professional. She took beautiful photos of my wedding party and family as well as candids throughout the ceremony and reception that really capture the feeling and excitement of my special day. Thank you Cambrae!

This is my first year being awarded The Knot Best of Weddings for wedding photography. It takes time to sit and write reviews but it means so much to me that so many of my married and soon to be married couples have taken the time. I am so lucky to work with so many amazing people.

Cambrae photographed my sister's wedding 2019. Her work is stunning, raw, and real. I loved how she captured all their sweet moments. I am so happy she is doing my fiancé and I's wedding 2021. She is not only an amazing photographer but she is so nowledgeable.  I can't say enough how help she has been through this planning process and such a joy to work with!

We booked Cambrae for our 2020 wedding reception (which is now postponed) and she was amazingly kind and made it easy to reschedule with for our new 2021 date. We ended up having Cambrae take post-elopement photos for us and she was incredibly flexible and easy to work with. I can be awkward on the other side of the camera but she gave great direction and made me look natural and confident. Cambrae is a genuinely kind and funny person and it really comes through in her work as well. I am more than satisfied with the photos, which came out better than I could have dreamed. Thank you Cambrae!

We loved Cambrae! She was very professional and patient with us, as well as personable. She researched some locations prior to our session, and even called ahead of time to make sure we could have access to certain spots. She guided us through poses when we were unsure and she made it feel very comfortable. Cambrae has a very creative eye and had so many ideas for us on the spot. Lastly, she made us laugh and have a very memorable session.

Our photographer Cambrae was able to be a bright light on the day of my daughter's wedding day.  She arrived early to captured photos of the venue we were surprised to see and of the car being secretly decorated.   She was very pleasant and respectful to the wedding party taking special photos of all of us. Cambrae was able to make adjustments to the requirements during the pandemic but not at the sacrifice of the getting lovely photos.

We absolutely loved working with Cambrae, she traveled out of state to do our wedding day pictures. She is very easy to work with, and considering I have a large Hispanic family she made pictures that much easier on our wedding day. We loved our wedding pictures and would recommend her in the future to family and friends. Her prices are affordable and fair, especially in the crazy wedding market today. She took the time to get to know us prior to our wedding during our appointments, just adding her personalized touch. She does webcam appointments which made it extremely convenient considering my husband and I lived out of state prior to our wedding. You will love your photos on your special day, and the experience you receive from Cambrae.

she was AMAZING!  she did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. she really is flexible to work with your schedule. She is well organized and efficient. super kind and genuinely cares about her clients.

Cambrae has amazing photography skills. She captured the beauty of our wedding and included the standard photos with family and somehow managed to make THOSE look amazing! We booked her for both engagement and wedding. Any time I needed to reach her, she was available or responded quickly. Her prices are beyond reasonable and is accommodating to requests.

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Cambrae on our wedding day.  From the first session we really liked her personality and professionalism. She listened to what we wanted, made a schedule and then helped us stick to it on the big day. She was also fabulous in engaging the young kids in the pictures and giving directions to the wedding party.

Super excited to work with Cambrae.  We had our consultation with her and she is knowledgeable, approachable and friendly but professional.
