Mia and Chris and I met at a wine-tasting event WAY back in the day right around the time when Chris proposed! We photographed their apple-orchard inspired engagement session back in 2012 and had a blast together. Since then so much has happened, marriage, houses, careers (Mia is the manager at the Pearl Anthropologie!) and Mia and Chris welcomed their sweet baby girl Ceci into this wonderful world! Was so honored to photograph their sweet family along with their pups at their stylish home in NE Portland. I especially loved the Jonathan Adler couch! (Yes please) and Ceci’s hip and bright nursery. Their older pup passed very soon after these photos were taken so I’m very humbled to have photographed that sweet pup. So much love for this kind, stylish and creative family!
Gosh- what can I even say about these two magical people!? Amanda and Lane and I all met up at The Vintages, a very hip vintage RV resort in wine country for a fun afternoon spent biking, making 1927 S’mores and dancing in meadows. After meeting Amanda at a backyard party after both photographing weddings, we instantly bonded and started working together. Amanda and Lane met and fell in love on a weekend holiday at The Vintages early in their relationship, so it made the engagement session extra special. (awe!) Many of you may recognize her as our talented studio manager & photographer at our awesome sister studio; A Lovely Day Photography! Their fun love and witty jokes had the Glitch Video team and I laughing all the way. (Click here to see their cool engagement video!) Their wedding this month at Union Pine going to be incredible and I can’t wait to document their wedding story!!!
Kelsey and Tyler and I all met up last fall in Sunriver Oregon at their family’s home. Sunriver is a magical little town outside of Bend with a wonderful community, tree-lined paths everywhere and incredible views of the Three Sisters and Mt. Bachelor. Since this place is near and dear to Kelsey and Tyler ( Sunriver is where Tyler asked the big question!) we decided to photograph their engagement session here. We got their cute pup in some pics and I love the Pendelton Blanket and champagne picnic that we started the session with. (yeah liquid courage!) Kelsey and Tyler are kind-hearted, intelligent and gorgeous (obviously!) and I’m mildly obsessed with the sunset pics from behind the Sunriver Resort through the tall grass with the mountains in the backdrop… Ohhh so pretty! The talented Kate Tuma did Kelsey’s hair and makeup for the session. They are getting married this August at one of my favorite downtown venues, The Sentinel Hotel and I’m so excited and honored to be documenting their wedding day!
Kristina and Scott along with Kristina’s son Aiden, all met up on an overcast yet calm Sunday morning on the coast, where the family was enjoying a long weekend getaway. This kind couple loves nature, hiking and being outdoors with family. So much so, that they are getting married this month on top of Mt. Hood at Silcox Hut! We explored old growth forests in Ecola State Park and danced on the beach. Kristina braved the chill in a long pretty dress and Aiden did rad ninja kicks for the camera. Thank you Scott and Kristina for choosing me to document these important moments with your family from ocean coast to mountain top!
It was a gorgeous summer’s day as I drove to Jenna and Greg’s family home on Sauvie Island in undeniably great light that only Sauvie Island gets. Jenna and Greg are just as kind and beautiful in person as they look and I literally had moments of the movie, The Notebook in my head as I was photographing this wonderful couple. Jenna and Greg met on the first day of medical school orientation and knew they had met someone special. They truly are soulmates and you can see it in the way they look at each other, interact and laugh. What Jenna says about Greg: “What made me fall in love with Greg first was his true happiness. It is the type of happiness that makes it worth getting up in the morning, no matter how hard the day looks. It is the type of happiness that warms you like a blanket on a cold day.” And Greg of Jenna: “I knew early on that Jenna was everything I could have ever hoped for in this world, the one girl I have been looking for all my life. And even after all this time and all the adventures we faced, I have only come to love Jenna more and more each day, growing not just as an individual, but as a couple of goobers who love each other more than we do ourselves.” WOW! What beautiful words and what a beautiful love! Beyond honored to be photographing their Portland wedding this summer!
I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah quite a few years ago at Callie and Andy’s 2012 wedding, as she was a bridesmaid. I instantly smiled when I met Sarah as she’s super funny, kind and gorgeous. I remember seeing Jason and Sarah swirl and spin together that night on the dance floor while laughing all the way and that still sums their love. They laugh together. A lot. Their wedding was all of that laughter and love all rolled into one insanely gorgeous and fun summer wedding at Maysara Vineyards. The flowers… just wow! Kim with Swoon Floral Design made the winery into a magical garden with pink and magenta blooms everywhere. The chuppah was magnificent and so was the cobblestone stairwell lined with greens. Megan with Bridal Bliss coordinated perfectly while White Pepper catering made a menu to remember! Dream Cakes and Chad Dowling DJ helped to complete the evening with wonderful cake and music; still smiling while remembering dancing with my camera to Despacito;) It was a night to remember in a stunning location with a gorgeous couple. Thank you SO much for choosing me to document your dream wedding!
Taylor and David live and love the Aloha spirit in the way they peacefully interact with each other and all around them. This couple is kind, endearing and oh so beautiful! Since they live in Hawaii but are planning a Portland wedding, we planned their fun engagement shoot for the beaches of the Pacific Ocean! This spring we met up at the awe-inspiring Ecola State Park and the iconic Cannon Beach! Taylor and I met back in 2007 when we worked together at the Heathman Restaurant, now called Headwaters. When she was wedding planning she found my name and reached out!!! SO fun reuniting with this lovely woman and her true love! Couldn’t be more excited for their wedding at the Lan Su Chinese Garden!
April and Justin’s square 12*12” album is a thing of beauty. It’s so timeless, elegant, yet approachable at the same time. It’s a black and brown leather that’s worn in but clean and goes great with their Medicine Creek Vineyard wedding.
Cat and Sam’s gorgeous 11*14 Heirloom album has arrived and looks incredible. The gorgeous Dulce de Leche leather cover and the square spine are timeless, and the photos and design are expressive, fun and clean. Check out their wedding photos. Can’t wait to share their parent albums, coming soon!
