Megan and Anton
A Mississippi Avenue Engagement

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.

Mandy and Avery
A North Portland Engagement Session

Any afternoon spent eating oysters, exploring the best murals in Portland and jumping in the river is pretty much the best afternoon ever. Not to mention spending it with two astonishingly wonderful people. Mandy and Avery are perfect for each other in every way- they laugh together all the time, bring out the best in each other and have a lot of fun together. They met while Mandy was traveling to Colorado for work and decided to make the long distance thing work. “Jumping in has always been a theme of our relationship from the start” said Avery of their love. Not surprisingly, he proposed while traveling in Ireland right before plunging into the Atlantic ocean in winter. “Will you jump in with me?” He asked- “Yes!” She replied and Splash!!! They are tying the knot this June and it’s going to be insanely magical.  Our fun adventure started at Eat : An Oyster Bar, near their home in North Portland where they like to hang. We ate raw oysters and cheered Negronis! We then explored the many incredible murals on Alberta and ended at sunset on the docks in SE Portland. There was another photographer shooting a guy dressed up as a T-rex so we posed with him and he recognized Mandy! They are mutual friends and it was hilarious. Only in Portland in all the best ways. Can’t wait for Mandy and Avery’s wedding for sure.

Erin and Dylan
Portland Kenton and Overlook Engagements

Words like whimsical, fun, adventurous and compassionate come to mind when thinking about Erin and Dylan (and their rad dog Easy E!) Their incredible kindness, silliness and impecable style shine through in these fun images from their recent engagement session all around North Portland. We photographed a roof in NE industrial, a vintage Victorian in Overlook, the famous Paul Bunyan statue in Kenton and ended the evening with dinner and drinks at Kennedy School, which is where Erin and Dylan shared their first kiss together over 5 years ago! I had the amazing opportunity to share and witness a wedding with Erin and Dylan back in 2011 when Kirstie and Jason were married in their SE Portland home. Sharing that experience was bonding and I’ll never forget that first day I spent with this amazing couple. Actually, Kirstie with Kirstie Wight Makeup Artist created Erin’s soft and natural makeup and hair. Their upcoming “adventure” theme wedding in the Gorge this July is going to be a total blast and I can’t wait to be there. Big love!

Jessica and Jason have been together for over 15 years and had the most beautiful baby girl, Gracen 9, months ago. They are now anticipating their upcoming nuptials at a stunning resort in Idaho, which I’m honored to document in September! We had a lot of fun around N. Mississippi and I love the mix of country and city within these images with the grasses, the truck and the murals.
