Ande and Michael | A Japanese Garden Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in October, 2017

These two!!!! Ande and Mike are full of life, love and so much spirit! I had the absolute honor of photographing at the Portland Japanese Garden, with permission of course. I was overwhelmed in beauty by the trees, koi fish streams and waterfalls and had this crazy idea for the koi fish to be circling their heads. Ande and Mike laid on the dock and waited patiently for the koi fish to line up perfectly and it was hilarious! We stopped foot traffic and I was talking to the koi fish to align. For sunset we hung out on the SE Waterfront and had fun dancing with the fading sun and calm waves. Ande and Mike- You guys are so awesome and I’m so beyond elated to work with you at your Sentinel wedding this weekend with Bridal Bliss! It’s going to be MAJESTIC!

Vi and Alex are the kind of people that feel like old friends right when you meet them. From the Departure rooftop at the Nines in downtown Portland to the SE industrial docks, they made Portland shine a little brighter and look a little hotter. Literally, it was the hottest day of the summer and these two still smiled, laughed and looked incredible! I’m so elated to be photographing their wedding this weekend at the elegant Oregon Golf Club!

Imagine strolling along the french countryside on a late summer eve to find the most beautiful of antique barns. Now imagine attending a stunning dinner party in that barn surrounded with friends, wine, music, candlelight and happiness all celebrating true love. A dream day for sure; which is exactly what Ellie and Matthieu’s wedding was! After meeting in Paris, this kind and enchanting couple fell in love and had an intimate elopement beneath Bridal Veil Falls in Spring with family.

Lucy and Paul | A SE Portland Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in August, 2017

For Lucy and Paul’s engagement, we decided to do a beautiful mix of Portland nature and urban scenery. I met up with them at Mt. Tabor park to capture their sweet love among the tall trees and greenery. We then headed across Portland’s newest pedestrian-only bridge, Tillikum Crossing. We ended capturing the couple on the Southeast waterfront at sunset. These two kind hearted and laid back people met and live in lucky Las Vegas and Lucy grew up in Portland which brought them to plan their wedding here! I can’t wait for their wedding this weekend at the stunning Youngberg Hill Winery!

Megan and Anton | A Mississippi Avenue Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in July, 2017

Megan and Anton and I met up at my studio on the ever-changing Mississippi ave in Portland to adventure along to find awesome murals, a great open field and we may have broke into a construction site! Megan and Anton have a kind and compassionate love and super fun personalities. Anton is actually a killer hockey player for the Vancouver Canucks and Megan is a children’s nurse in her residency. I went a little crazy photographing their artistic tattoos. Anton’s were done by the very talented Fred Flores (click on his name to check out his awesome Instagram!) SO excited for their wedding this month at the historic and beautiful Oregon Golf Club.
