Wedding Photography

Becky Nerpel


“What does 623 stand for?” It’s the most frequent question I get so I’ll start off my bio with the answer! Ever since I can remember, I’ve randomly seen the clock almost daily at 6:23 am or pm. It’s kind of a weird lucky number thing and I went with it when naming my business. Being asked to think about it so much in answering the “Why” behind the name has inspired some deep thoughts though. My job as a photographer is essentially to freeze time and preserve memories so I recently incorporated a clock into my logo to tie in the reference to my lucky time number and my mission as your photographer. My style is considered Freestyle or eclectic; my approach being to capture the traditional posed photos but also incorporate fun, candid and journalistic photos and artistic details into the final gallery. My shooting and editing style is crisp, clean and timeless. In 2015 I added a staff of amazingly talented photographers to my team ensuring that your special day is ALWAYS available at an affordable price.

Wedding Venue

Mark & Jean Wonser


Wonser Woods, LLC is a 622-acre tree farm established in 1990 by Mark & Jean Wonser. In 2014 Wonser Woods Estate, LLC was established in order to promote the use of our farm as a wedding and event venue while also offering room and board.

Our ground covers from 500 to 1000 feet of elevation and is tucked neatly into the foothills of the Cascade mountain range. Several miles of Clear Creek and two of its tributaries run through the property. It is a major tributary of the Clackamas River and breeding ground to trout, steelhead, Coho and Chinook salmon. We have excellent views of Mt. Hood, Goat Mountain and the Willamette Valley while Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams are also nearby and visible from remote portions of our property.

The activities of our farming operation include growing Christmas trees, wheat, oats and vegetables. We also use various cover crops for soil enhancement when the need arises. We log our timber for the production of lumber, poles and firewood always exceeding Oregon’s stringent logging practices guidelines.

Wonser Woods Estate, LLC was established to allow us to share our property with neighbors and friends interested in weddings, family gatherings, large parties, business and corporate meetings and retreats. The estate is a mile from our nearest neighbor and the only sounds we are able to hear are those of nature and an occasional farm vehicle.
