Catherine & Miles
A Seattle Engagement Session

Oh how I love Seattle! I met Catherine and Miles along the Puget Sound for a gorgeous and iconic Seattle waterfront engagement session. Catherine and Miles live in Seattle but are having a destination wedding in Portland, as Catherine is originally from here. The best of both worlds in my opinion! We snuck away from the crowds to find some quiet and intimate photo locations while also capturing those classic shots of Pike’s Place, the Gum Wall and the Seattle waterfront. I just love this easy-going and sweet couple and I can’t believe their wedding is almost here! What a way to “ring” in the new year! 

(p.s. Have you seen my photoshoot at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory?)

AnnaMaria and John
Sauvie Island Engagement Photography

AnnaMaria and John met me out on their family estate on Sauvie Island to celebrate their engagement! These two cuties met in high school and are so sweet together. I’ve also had the honor of photographing the weddings of AnnaMaria’s siblings. First her sister Jenna and then her brother Alfonso. I love feeling like part of the family at this point! During their engagement session we ventured around the farm before ending the photo shoot along the Columbia River for some fun pics in the water. I can’t wait for their wedding this weekend at the Portland Golf Club.

Katie and Dan
An Iconic Portland Engagement

Katie and Dan were making a big move to Texas after getting engaged, but wanted to commemorate their time together in Portland before leaving. We made sure to include all the most iconic Portland scenes including beautiful city views in SE Portland along the East Bank Esplanade and gorgeous forest scenery in Forest Park at Hoyt Arboretum. I’m very excited & honored to travel to Austin this weekend to photograph their wedding!

Laura & Gary
Portland Waterfront Engagement

Laura and Gary are a fun and laid-back couple who wanted their engagements to showcase all the beauty of fall in Portland. We met on the East Side Esplanade for sweeping views of the city and stunning architectural photos on the Tilikum Bridge. Their wedding is just around the corner and will be hosted at The Evergreen among close friends and family.

Portland is known for its bridges, check out this blog with Kristin and Jay at St. John’s Bridge.

Dominique & Kevin
Downtown Portland Engagement

Dominique and Kevin are a travel-loving couple from Chicago who have been all over the world together. Now they’re both looking to make a home together… which starts with getting married! For their engagements, we walked along the riverside in Portland for some stunning photos filled with some of Portland’s most iconic bridges and skyscrapers. The couple are getting married at an intimate ceremony here in Portland and I can’t wait for their big day!

Hannah & Sam
Columbia River Gorge Engagement

Overlooking the Columbia River Gorge on a little island named Government Cove, Hannah and Sam danced among the lupine and golden grasses for their sunset engagement photoshoot. This location is fast becoming one of my go-to spots near Hood River because of it’s picturesque and diverse views. One of my favorite moments came when Sam slipped his hand into Hannah’s back pocket, a sweet and loving gesture that was completely unprompted. It’s the little moments like this that make my heart sing! We photographed their engagements a year ago and now their wedding day is just a few days away. Hannah and Sam are such a sweet and loving couple and their wedding is one I’ve been anticipating for a long time!

Trish and Josh
A Vancouver Engagement

Trish and Josh are the sweetest couple and so well matched. Our sunset engagement session along the Vancouver waterfront was the perfect start to the wedding countdown. We revisited where Trish and Josh met each other in this exact spot for their very first date. A few hours turned into a whole day of talking, biking, and sipping margaritas at Who Song and Larry’s with a riverfront view, which then carried into the week, the month and the years!  This golden hour engagement made my heart soar and I just know that their wedding this weekend will be beyond amazing.

Sara and Ben
Olympic National Park Engagement

Sara and Ben’s engagement was a true Pacific Northwest adventure! This two day adventure started with a sunset hike on Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park for sweeping views of the mountains and dazzling golden light and woke up bright and early for a dawn session for a morning SUP board paddle on Lake Crescent while the sun rose.These two have a deep love of their home in Washington and all the outdoor activities it provides. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day with more beautiful people! Congratulations on your engagement, Sara and Ben!
