weddings, elopements, portraits — oh my!
from large weddings to small elopements to family photos to senior portraits - we document both big milestones and the sweet in-between moments in life
500 weddings? We’ve lost count, but we remember every one. We take on ~25 weekend weddings a year and are no strangers to travel; in the past year we’ve shot weddings in Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, DC, Minneapolis, Alabama, Milwaukee, Ohio, Maryland, Kentucky, and Virginia. (And all over WV, of course!)
Even before 2020 (😅), we were no strangers to elopements and microweddings! We’ve since expanded our packages for smaller weekday nuptials, and love documenting (& helping couples plan) these little, laid back days.
We love portrait sessions of all kinds! Our specialities are family portraits, senior portraits, and branding/headshot sessions. We also have a knack for photographing the furry buddies in your life, so if you’re obsessed with your fur-babies and would rather plaster your walls with photos of them, we’re probably the photographers for you.

What’s in a name?
The Oberports is a combination of our last names - Bobby OBERlander and Emily PORTer. It started as an affectionate nickname among friends (at first they tried Portlanders but.... yeah), and now it's also our business name!
When was the last time you had photos taken of yourself? Whether you need some for your business or you just want some updated photos, we have packages for you!
