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. Congrats on your upcoming wedding!city-scape-engagements-portland-001 city-scape-engagements-portland-003 city-scape-engagements-portland-004 city-scape-engagements-portland-005 city-scape-engagements-portland-002 city-scape-engagements-portland-006 city-scape-engagements-portland-007city-scape-engagements-portland-008city-scape-engagements-portland-010 AdobeBridgeBatchRenameTemp3city-scape-engagements-portland-012 AdobeBridgeBatchRenameTemp2city-scape-engagements-portland-011 city-scape-engagements-portland-009 city-scape-engagements-portland-013

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.

Megan and Brian | A Cathedral Park Engagement

by Jessica Hill Photography in February, 2016

Megan and Brian and I met up beneath the St. John’s bridge in Cathedral park this autumn for their engagement shoot. This couple loves adventure and their adorable rescue pups, both hounds, and I was in puppy hound heaven.  It was a pretty cold and blustery day and they both just went for it- sans coats and next to the water no less! Megan and Brian have that unspoken love that you can feel from across the room (or a park) with their glances and their laughter. I love the architecture of the Saint John’s Bridge and I love exploring new parts of this masterpiece with each and every shoot I do there. So looking forward to their wedding this September at Youngberg Hill Vineyards!st-Johns-engagements-1-2st-Johns-engagements-1-3st-Johns-engagements-1-6 st-Johns-engagements-1-1 st-Johns-engagements-1-13 st-Johns-engagements-1-4st-Johns-engagements-1-7 st-Johns-engagements-1-5st-Johns-engagements-1-9 st-Johns-engagements-1-10 st-Johns-engagements-1-8 st-Johns-engagements-1-11 st-Johns-engagements-1-12

Top 15 of 2015!

by Jessica Hill Photography in January, 2016

Every January I compile a handful of my favorite images from the past year. I like to limit myself, because I would honestly have a blog of 2,910 favorite photos! Since 2012, I’ve done the top 12, 13, 14 and now 15 favorite engagement and wedding images corresponding to the year. It’s been such a pleasure photographing each and every couple during the past 12 months and I am so humbled by the creativity, true love, trust and uniqueness I document at every engagement and wedding and I would honored to document yours. Thank YOU to all the couples over the past 10 years that have trusted me to document their most endearing life moments!

Ellie and Matthieu | Paris to Portland with Love

by Jessica Hill Photography in January, 2016

I first met Ellie and Matthieu back in 2012 at an incredible wedding and we just clicked. They are kind, beautiful, creative and intelligent and I remember thinking what a great couple they made. Ellie and Matthieu first met during Ellie’s time abroad in Paris. They met at a cafe and Ellie asked Matthieu to “break” ten euros but in not-so fluent english so it actually meant to tear in half (cute right!) and from that moment on they started falling in love. Over five years, many travels and now speaking perfect French, Ellie and Matthieu are getting married this upcoming September. Because they are still traveling from Portland to Paris, they looked though these engagement images together via Skype and this is what Ellie shared with me about that moment. “He was smiling the entire time. Ear to ear. He told me they are way better than he was expecting. Thank you so much Jessica. You truly made our hearts feel warm, looking at them together. Just no words. They showed who we are and I love that. Thank you thank you.”

Receiving emails like this truly confirm my life’s work and love. Thank YOU both Ellie and Matthieu and I’m beyond excited to be documenting your first steps together as husband and wife this year and to share this with your amazing family and friends.
