Monica and Sara
A Gorge Crest Vineyard Wedding

Monica and Sara have a great love and threw a huge celebration to honor it! Monica and Sara’s wedding was a joyous party at the most beautiful location at Gorge Crest Vineyard in Washington on the Columbia River. With Mt. Hood in the distance, family and friends dancing under the stars and a momentous love that moves mountains, this wedding was unforgettable in every way. Monica and Sara are a great couple as they compliment each other and have a way of making everyone around them feel welcome and comfortable. They found their gorgeous dresses at Lena Medoyeff in the Pearl and their florals were created by the talented Leah at Rockwood Urban Farm. Their wedding day coordination and rentals from the amazing Debbie at Hitched in the Hood and makeup and hair from Kassandra Sommerville. What a wedding!

Monica and Sara
A Hood River Rehearsal Dinner

Monica and Sara’s rehearsal dinner last summer was a truly enchanted evening at a historic sunken wine cellar. Complete with great wine and food, brand new babies and mammas to be, friends singing great songs and beautiful love from a beautiful couple. The toasts were abundant with love and praise and poetry and many a tear was shed! This magical space is called Springhouse Cellars in downtown Hood River and you should visit soon for a tasting! hood-river-weddings-001 hood-river-weddings-002 hood-river-weddings-003 hood-river-weddings-004 hood-river-weddings-005 hood-river-weddings-006 hood-river-weddings-007 hood-river-weddings-008 hood-river-weddings-009 hood-river-weddings-010 hood-river-weddings-011 hood-river-weddings-012 hood-river-weddings-013

Desiree and Kate
An Urban Studio Pearl Wedding

Des and Kate’s wedding was full of pure joy, lots of happiness, and dinosaurs! Their wedding took place this past spring at the contemporary Urban Studio with Pearl Catering providing the yummy food! I was smiling all day during this wedding as the brides and their family and friends were so fun and laid-back. I loved their mis-matched farm chairs from Something Borrowed and their vintage rustic vibe. With awesome coordination from Natalia at Bridal Bliss, pretty flowers from Blum, tunes from Dowling Productions and a tarot card reader, this event was one for the books. Love wins always! urban-studio-event-photography-001 urban-studio-event-photography-002 urban-studio-event-photography-003 urban-studio-event-photography-004 urban-studio-event-photography-005 urban-studio-event-photography-006 urban-studio-event-photography-007 urban-studio-event-photography-008 urban-studio-event-photography-009 urban-studio-event-photography-010 urban-studio-event-photography-011 urban-studio-event-photography-012 urban-studio-event-photography-013 urban-studio-event-photography-014 urban-studio-event-photography-015 urban-studio-event-photography-016 urban-studio-event-photography-017 urban-studio-event-photography-018 urban-studio-event-photography-019 urban-studio-event-photography-020 urban-studio-event-photography-021 urban-studio-event-photography-022 urban-studio-event-photography-023 urban-studio-event-photography-024 urban-studio-event-photography-025 urban-studio-event-photography-026 urban-studio-event-photography-027 urban-studio-event-photography-028 urban-studio-event-photography-029

Monica and Sara
A Sokol Blosser Engagement

Monica and Sara and I met up on a gorgeous autumn day deep in the heart of Oregon wine country at the stunning and modern Sokol Blosser winery, which is where Sara and Monica were engaged! This has to be one of my all time favorite vineyards in Oregon, with the sweeping views, angular clean construction and delicious award winning wine, it’s a memorable experience for sure. Monica and Sara are a great couple that balance and compliment each other perfectly and we had a blast hiking around the area with their pup and and I’m really looking forward to their wedding in the Columbia River Gorge this Summer. Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-001Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-004 Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-002 Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-003 Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-005 Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-006Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-007 Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-008 Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-009 Sokol-Blosser-Weddings-010

Desiree and Kate
An Urban Winery and Arcade Engagement in Portland

Desiree and Kate are the kind of couple you meet and just click with. Hours seem like minutes and my face hurt from smiling so much. I loved their plans for their engagement shoot around Portland, incorporating wine tasting at Enso, a vintage arcade and a walk in the woods with their three labs. It makes me so happy when a couple truly uses their engagement shoot as way to reflect on their shared interests and hobbies. The wine was a little more Des, the arcade a little more Kate, and the woods were truly them. We had a blast and I am so looking forward to their downtown Portland wedding in April! Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-001 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-002 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-003 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-004 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-005 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-007Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-009 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-008 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-011 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-010 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-012 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-013 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-014 Portland-Love-Is-Love-Engagements-015

Gloria and Maggie
A Eugene Winery Wedding

On a warm Thursday evening in July, 100 of Gloria and Maggie’s nearest and dearest family and friends gathered at Sweetcheeks Winery beneath a giant oak tree in the gorgeous Willamette wine country near Eugene, Oregon to celebrate love. And Oh how Glo and Maggie’s love was celebrated!!! With lots of laughter, readings from the most recent Supreme Court Ruling for united marriage equality, light up bowties, a bubble machine and so much love… this was one of those weddings that I’ll never forget. I made new friends and I felt like family. Thank you Glo and Maggie, you two are amazing and I was honored to document your truly remarkable wedding.

Love Wins! Oregon United for Marriage at the Melody

Last week, a historic event happened in Oregon. Oregon announced that same-sex couples can legally marry! I have always felt that marriage and love is not a privilege kept only for those who have a traditional relationship, but a right for everyone to love and marry whom they choose. I was honored to volunteer at the Melody Ballroom last week on Monday, May 19th, 2014 with Oregon United for Marriage, a wonderful organization that has worked really hard to change the way marriage is viewed in Oregon and beyond. Honoring same-sex couples in marriage strengthens our community, our state and the nation. I witnessed and documented over 10 weddings and thousands of couples who have been together for, sometimes, decades waiting for Oregon to finally recognize them as a married couple. I was humbled and honored, brought to tears, laughed until my face hurt and danced in celebration. Thank you Oregon. Love Wins!
