Christina and Isaac
A Blue Hour Portland Wedding

Capturing Christina and Isaac’s timeless and modern wedding was a dream! The couple got ready at The Nines Hotel, a contemporary and stylish luxury hotel located in the heart of downtown Portland. Christina looked so chic in her BHLDN wedding gown; a perfect combination of simplicity and intricate detail. Her classic flower arrangements, created by the talented team at Geranium Lake, complimented the bride’s ensemble exquisitely. The groom’s style was on point in his custom created tux by Suit Supply. Isaac even incorporated a creative detail by adding an embroidered inside joke that he and Christina had shared during law school into the lining of his jacket. The architecture of our iconic Portland photo locations, The Treasury and The Benson Hotel, were stunning and really encapsulated the vibe of the couple’s wedding day. Bold lines and modern shapes met with the historic elegance of the structure made for the ultimate venue composite. Christina and Isaac looked right at home with one another amidst the sleek corinthian columns. Following an intimate civil ceremony, Christina and Isaac treated their guests to an incredible experience at their contemporary Bluehour Restaurant reception! Guests had the pleasure of indulging in a 5 course meal that included caviar, Dom Perignon Champagne, and a beautifully minimalistic cake provided by Bluehour. Friends and family enjoyed each other’s company as they danced and celebrated the happy couple’s special Portland wedding day. I can’t thank Christina and Isaac enough for creating such an exquisite day and for entrusting me to capturing it. Wishing all the love and happiness for this sophisticated & sweet couple!

Caroline & Scott
A SE Portland Engagement

I met Caroline and Scott, a kind & quiet couple on a gorgeous afternoon in Portland for their engagement at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. Located in SE Portland, the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is a local gem for photographers with its variety of natural topography. It could not have been a more beautiful day with waterfalls and bursts of blooms in every color! I loved Caroline’s blue vintage-inspired dress that popped against the floral backdrop. I am so excited for their wedding this weekend at Cooper’s Hall! Thank you Caroline and Scott for entrusting me the honor to photograph you guys!

Billy & Griffin
A San Francisco Engagement

After photographing Griffin’s high school senior photos back in 2009 (omg) we’ve stayed Facebook friends since and I was overjoyed to see the notification that he and Billy were engaged! I met up with them in Sausalito for delish oysters and white wine and great convos before heading into the Marin Headlands to photograph their epic Golden Gate sunset portraits. I loved capturing their stylish and elegant yet laid-back styles and seeing them interact, laugh and love each other. I’m so happy these two found each other from Thailand and Oregon respectively in the Golden City.

Raishelle and Riley
An Oregon Wine Country Wedding

Happy anniversary to these two amazing people!  Raishelle and Riley got married on a magical late spring day at the spectacular Youngberg Hill. The skies quite literally took my breath away with the depth and dreamlike clouds. Raishelle wore a remarkable David Tutera dress that was perfectly her. The unique cake was done by Lux Sucre Desserts and dinner was catered by Willaby’s Catering and Event Design, serving the most delicious farm to table meal (just look at those bright red strawberries on the salad!). The night ended with Stumptown DJs putting on an epic dance party. The bride and groom broke it down on the dance floor with their guests all night! Thank you Raishelle and Riley for allowing me to photography your incredible big day!

Christy and Addison
A Seattle Engagement

Having the opportunity to travel to neighboring PNW cities to meet my lovely couples is an honor that I deeply cherish. I met adorable and fun couple, Christy and Addison, in Washington for their Seattle engagement! I loved the variety of Seattle we explored beginning with Volunteer Park Conservatory. The 15,000 square foot glass structure is a product of years of thought, design, and vision beginning as early as 1878 until its completion in 1912. The conservatory, originally modeled after London’s Crystal Palace, added its famous greenhouses by 1922. We continued our time together at various locations within Pike Place Market where the couple’s laid-back and sophisticated style shined. The quaint coffee shop, Storyville was a location for a many a date and the famous Gum Wall with over 20 years of gum stuck to it were just a few cool local spots we visited. We also discovered a nearby rooftop to capture some fab skyline photos that included the iconic Seattle Space Needle. SO happy for this smart and sweet couple who are getting married this August!

Patience & Egan
A Mt. Tabor Park and Waterfront Engagement

As soon as I met Patience and Egan we immediately clicked and ended up talking for hours about their world travels (Japan & Greece!) and where to find the best sushi in Portland! (Ichidai and Bamboo!) Egan fell for Patience when they met one another while at summer camp! These two are such a kind, beautiful, and empathetic couple who I had the pleasure of photographing their engagements at Mt. Tabor, a popular urban park in SE Portland known for it’s views and water reservoirs. With the Portland city skyline as our backdrop, we made our way to a few beautiful locations around this gorgeous urban park along with their cutie pie pup Corgie, Kevin. We headed to the waterfront for some iconic sunset photos with Portland in the distance. I’m honored to have captured the love between Patience and Egan as the sun peaked through the trees amidst mesmerizing sunset reflections on the river. I loved connecting with these two and Patience’s makeup and hair by Olivia Hawthorne. They are getting married this June at the Sentinel in downtown Portland and I just know that their day will be filled with so much love. Thank you Patience and Egan for allowing me to be a part of your story.

Kristina and Scott
A Silcox Hut Wedding at Timberline Lodge

I had the pleasure of first meeting Kristina and Scott at their Oregon coast engagement session and now am honored to have been a part of their majestic day at their unique Silcox Hut wedding. Built in 1939, Silcox Hut was originally used as a warming hut but has now transformed into the ultimate mountain bed and breakfast. Sitting atop Mt. Hood at a staggering 7,000 ft and approximately 1,000 ft above Timberline Lodge, we had to take either snowcats or 4-wheel ATV’s up to the quaint hut. Being that Kristina and Scott are an adventurous and nature-oriented couple & I couldn’t have imagined a more fitting venue for their intimate wedding. Kristina looked absolutely stunning walking down the aisle makeup by the talented Olivia Hawthorne and hair by Pin It Pretty. I especially loved seeing Kristina’s son, Aiden, walk her up the stairs of the hut to the aisle. Surrounded by Silcox’s incredible wooden architecture, Kristina and Scott exchanged vows to one another in front of their family and close friends. I love that they incorporated a tree-planting ceremony of an evergreen, which they will later re-plant in their yard. At over a mile above the ground, we were above the clouds and were able to create some incredible sunset photos. Silcox is truly a magical place and I am so happy to have been entrusted with capturing the undeniable love Kristina and Scott share. Wishing many years of love and happiness to this kind & wonderful couple!

Jackie and Jordan
A Portland Rooftop Engagement

I had the best time photographing gorgeous couple Jackie and Jordan alongside their cute pup, Buddy! We captured stunning photos amidst the classic Portland sign and downtown along the Park Blocks. I love when the Portland Art Museum has epic displays that make for interesting and artistic backdrops. We then enjoyed some VIP access to gorgeous sun kissed rooms and an incredible rooftops inside a Portland high-rise. This was quite epic as I totally love photographing on rooftops and this rooftop was non-accessible to the public, so it made the experience quite incredible. Enjoying each other’s company high above the city as the sun set below Portland, Jackie and Jordan danced and laughed together as they toasted to a bright future. Wishing these two all the love and happiness and I’m so excited to be documenting their destination wedding in Napa coming this May. Jackie and Jordan- Thank you for choosing me to capture the undeniable love you two share!
