Welcome. My name is Mario Vaden and my wife's name is Jan. We are located in Medford, Oregon, sharing space with a few dogs for creature comfort.

My love for photography started years ago in the coast redwood forest, followed by a passion for portraits. I enjoy portraits as much as landscapes, maybe even more. Photo sessions are relaxed, and sometimes entertaining. Maybe it shows in a few photo samples.

Most of my working years have been outside, and outdoor photo sessions are among my favorites. But indoor space is available if needed.

I have ample gear for portraits, weddings and some commercial work, using both natural and supplemental light.

For anyone interested in extra personal stuff, I enjoy hiking, chess, reading and gardening, and searching for world record size trees, including a largest coast redwood and others. This is another reason why some couples enjoy me capturing their redwood wedding photos.

The email above is for sharing sample images, lists or directions. Facebook is not practical for contact and I don't use it very often. This website and phone are the best way to get in touch.

Every few weeks, I may be away from phone or internet signal for a couple of days during photography or exploring, but check messages right away afterward.

I don't cram my schedule too tight, and usually have excellent flexibility to fit your event on my calendar.

Meanwhile, a few extra notes are provided for you under "More" in the menu.

Cheers !
Mario Vaden
