My passion for photography began as a senior in high school, and really flourished after I graduated from Portland State University in 2008. With a degree in communications and a Nikon on my back, I began Amber Hempen Photography. I typically shoot in a more photo-journalistic style, to capture the true emotion of the moment. This translates beautifully to weddings and other celebratory moments. Lately, I have begun to grow my portfolio with posed model shoots, band promos, and portraits.
What I love about photography is seeing beauty in the smallest of details. I also love to make people happy, and capturing happy memories is a true joy and easily the best part of what I do.
