Mandy and Avery | A North Portland Engagement Session

by Jessica Hill Photography in May, 2017

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.

Hannah and Jacob | A Downtown Portland Urban Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in October, 2016

Hannah and Jacob are just as kindhearted as they are beautiful and I’m so honored to have met them and worked together with them this year. Their engagements took place on a stunning Spring day on the rooftop of their apartment, which is where Jacob proposed to Hannah one fateful evening. We later adventured to Ace Hotel, in which we may or may not, have kicked a kind couple out of a sofa seat in order to get the shot (luckily they were sweethearts and totally understood!) We also hung out with their rad pup and had a lot of fun around downtown Portland. downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-1 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-2 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-3 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-4 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-5 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-6 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-7 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-8 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-9 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-10 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-11 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-12 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-13 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-14gustafsson-bagley-engagements-251 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-16gustafsson-bagley-engagements-257 downtown-portland-lifestyle-photographer-17

Jen and Vic | A Pearl Portland Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in July, 2016

Jen and Vic and I met up in the Pearl and Downtown Portland in the Spring for their urban inspired engagement shoot. From their killer style, complete with a sequin gown and tux on a rooftop to some awesome industrial walls and the setting sun- this shoot was made. This couple is not only gorgeous, but just as kind-hearted. You can feel their love when you’re around them (they seriously glow!) and they light up a room, or a rooftop, with their fun personalities. I can’t wait to be documenting their epic wedding this weekend at the Portland Art MuseumPortland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-01 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-02 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-03 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-04 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-05 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-06 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-07 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-08 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-09 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-10 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-11 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-12 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-13 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-14 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-15 Portland-Engagements-Lifestyle-Pearl-Photos-16

Allison and Aaron | A Timberline Mt. Hood Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in April, 2016

I couldn’t stop smiling with Allison and Aaron as we tromped around Mt. Hood in the knee deep snow for their engagement session. They are college sweethearts and have that kind of familiarity that is truly a joy to be around! They were troopers during the shoot as we had an icey rain pour on us and we were all freezing and wet. You can see how soaked we got in the last few pics!

I’ve known Allison and Aaron for over 5 years now and I had the absolute pleasure of having Allison as my intern from 2011-2012 while she was attending college at the Art Institute of Portland. She’s a super talented photographer and graphic designer and now works full time at Columbia Sportswear in the design department. SO proud of her and her accomplishments! When they contacted me about their wine country wedding for this August, I couldn’t have been more happy to hear that she and Aaron are getting married- as they truly are the perfect couple. VERY excited for their upcoming wedding at Vista Hills Vineyard. Love you guys!

Melissa and Landon | Portland Engagement Photography

by Jessica Hill Photography in April, 2016

Landon contacted me recently for a surprise engagement shoot for Melissa as a Valentine’s Day gift. He told me the concept of both natural and urban settings in classic Portland locations, like the waterfront, the White Stag building and Mt. Tabor and I was IN! Melissa was surprised and delighted and I had a ton of fun with this stylish couple all over Portland. With Landon being a musician and Melissa being an artist, I was in my element while we created some artistic and non-traditional images to match their creative love. We braved rain, icy temps and high winds and it was all so worth it. Thanks for choosing me L&M for your artistic and inspired engagements.

Elizabeth and Tim | A Portland Waterfront and Coopers Hall Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in February, 2016

Elizabeth and Tim are one of those couples that you meet and think…”I want to be their friend.” They have a natural ease and joy to them that’s magnetic. Lucky for me, I am able to call them friends and I’ve known Elizabeth now for over 6 years. She’s not only a delightful human, but she’s also one of my favorite wedding planners at Bridal Bliss Events. We’re coming full circle, as she helped plan and coordinate my own wedding, and now I have the great honor of documenting hers this coming March. This is one of the many reasons I love the Portland wedding community! Elizabeth and Tim and I all met up this winter for their engagement lifestyle session at the Portland East Bank Esplanade waterfront park and then afterwards for a cheers at Coopers Hall Urban Winery. Love the fun candid moments mixed with artistic intimacy here and I’m so excited to be documenting their first steps together as husband and wife on the exciting adventure of marriage.
