Jen and Vic | A Portland Art Museum Wedding

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

Jen and Vic evoke grace and style and they light up every room they walk into. I was honored to capture this beautiful couple this summer at their dream wedding taking place in Portland. The traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony took place at a private home, with the nuptials at the gorgeous St. Mary’s Cathedral and the reception at the ever-timeless Portland Art Museum. The style was on point with Jen’s stunning Monique Lhuillier dress and Vic’s elegant Tom Ford tux. We captured the wedding party at Fields park in NW Portland and around the grounds at the museum with an emphasis on romance and modernity. The immaculate reception space was dripping with orchids and roses created by Jordan at Blum Design in Flowers and the delicious food was catered by the A plus team at Art of Catering. The cake… honestly a work of art made by creative forces at Dream Cakes and it truly was a cake of dreams at 5 tiers!  I loved documenting the mix of colors and traditions and the endless array of stunning details. The couple treated the guests to the incredible beats of the one and only DJ Turbulence and it was a non-stop dance party and a night to remember. Congratulations Jen and Vic!

Sarah and Jason | A Pacific Northwest Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

I’ve been playing catch up with the blog as of late and this is one of the shoots I’ve been dying to get up. Sarah and Jason and I all met at Callie and Andy’s glorious wedding back in 2012. All at once, charming, striking and thoughtful, Sarah and Jason are a couple you remember. So naturally I was honored to hear from them as they are planning their 2017 wedding in Oregon’s wine country. We had fun galavanting around NW, including Forest Park and NW 23rd with a coffee stop at Barista. We all skipped through the forest with moss at our heels. (literally!) We met up early to get some nice light and I love the magic we made. Hope you do too. Can’t wait for Sarah and Jason’s wedding next July. xonw23-photos-portland-oregon-001 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-002 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-003 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-004 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-005 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-006 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-007 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-008 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-009 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-010 nw23-photos-portland-oregon-011nw23-photos-portland-oregon-012nw23-photos-portland-oregon-013nw23-photos-portland-oregon-014nw23-photos-portland-oregon-015nw23-photos-portland-oregon-016nw23-photos-portland-oregon-017nw23-photos-portland-oregon-018nw23-photos-portland-oregon-019nw23-photos-portland-oregon-020nw23-photos-portland-oregon-021

Elizabeth and Tim | An Old Church and Left Bank Portland Wedding

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

Imagine dancing to incredible live music beneath dazzling ivy while sipping a delicious glass of wine and nibbling fresh farm to table food. This was just a little of the magic of Elizabeth and Tim’s gorgeous wedding. Held in March over the St. Patrick’s day weekend as a nod to their shared Irish heritage, Elizabeth and Tim’s wedding was formal, yet laid back, fun and filled with personal details for each guest that only the top wedding planners at Bridal Bliss in Portland could dream up, including a wandering oyster bar and individual cakes by Dream Cakes for each guest! The heartfelt ceremony was held at Portland’s Old Church with the reception at the Left Bank Annex. Elizabeth looked stunning in her Pronovias dress from Anna’s Bridal with hair and makeup from Face Body Beauty and Tim looked dapper in his tux from the Black Tux. The stunning florals were created with love by the talented team at Zest and the delicious food was catered by Devil’s Food Catering. During dinner, a surprise team of Irish dancers took the stage and gave everyone a show during dinner. The party lasted all night with the high-energy band, Precious Byrd. So many good memories were made and I was beyond honored to document Elizabeth and Tim’s epic wedding weekend!

Elizabeth and Tim | A Plaza Del Toro Rehearsal Dinner

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

Delicious food in a stunning space, flower crowns for all the ladies created by Blum and wine o plenty! Elizabeth and Tim hosted the rehearsal dinner event of the year at Portland’s Plaza Del Toro, a unique event space located in the SE industrial area. Elizabeth and I go waaaayyy back to 2009 when she worked at New and Blue, a wedding boutique in the Pearl. Now, a lead coordinator with the amazing Bridal Bliss team, she’s a dynamic and creative planner, a beautiful and brave woman and a good friend. Tim is an intelligent & great guy, a talented musician and E&T have that kind of love you can actually feel when they look at each other. They light up every room they walk into and are a fun couple; perfect for each other. I’m so honored to have been there to document the moments that made up their gorgeous spring St. Patrick’s wedding weekend, inspired by their Irish heritage. Truly happy for these guys and their adventure together! plaza-del-toro-weddings-012plaza-del-toro-weddings-002 plaza-del-toro-weddings-003 plaza-del-toro-weddings-004 plaza-del-toro-weddings-005 plaza-del-toro-weddings-006 plaza-del-toro-weddings-007 plaza-del-toro-weddings-008 plaza-del-toro-weddings-009 plaza-del-toro-weddings-010 plaza-del-toro-weddings-011plaza-del-toro-weddings-013 plaza-del-toro-weddings-014 plaza-del-toro-weddings-015 plaza-del-toro-weddings-016

St. Jack Restaurant | Portland Food and Wine Photography

by Jessica Hill Photography in November, 2016

St Jack is one of the best French restaurants around and I was honored to photograph their ad campaign for their website and the event season. From their cocktail program, french wines, the amazing steak frites and fresh seafood, St. Jack is simply incredible. Chef Aaron Barnett is a culinary genius and well regarded in the french food world and I loved photographing this incredible space on NW 23rd and their beautifully crafted food. chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-001 chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-002 chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-003 chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-004 chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-005 chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-006 chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-007 chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-008chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-009chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-010chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-011chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-012chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-013chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-014chefs-table-st-jack-food-photography-015

Hannah and Jacob | A Downtown Portland Urban Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in October, 2016

Hannah and Jacob are just as kindhearted as they are beautiful and I’m so honored to have met them and worked together with them this year. Their engagements took place on a stunning Spring day on the rooftop of their apartment, which is where Jacob proposed to Hannah one fateful evening. We later adventured to Ace Hotel, in which we may or may not, have kicked a kind couple out of a sofa seat in order to get the shot (luckily they were sweethearts and totally understood!) We also hung out with their rad pup and had a lot of fun around downtown Portland. downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-1 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-2 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-3 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-4 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-5 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-6 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-7 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-8 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-9 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-10 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-11 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-12 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-13 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-14gustafsson-bagley-engagements-251 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-16gustafsson-bagley-engagements-257 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-17
