Kristina and Scott
Oregon Coast Photography

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!

Engagement

Jenna and Greg
A Sauvie Island Engagement Session

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!

Wedding

Sarah and Jason
Maysara Winery Wedding

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
A Cannon Beach Engagement

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

Albums

April and Justin’s Album

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.
