Kaitlyn & Scott
A Smith Rock Engagement Session

Smith Rock is one of those places that makes your jaw drop and your hairs stick up on the back of your arms and makes you say… “Really Oregon…?” WOW! Smith Rock is one of Oregon’s many wonders and I loved photographing Kaitlyn and Scott’s wondrous connection there back in late winter. This kind and fun couple and I had a lot of fun hiking around the area and finding the winter sun through the rock slivers. From the sage grass to the juniper, I love the high desert vegetation of this sacred land near Bend, Oregon. One of my favorite moments is when an older hiker came up and told the couple “Well, that would be a really great photo!” We laughed as he didn’t see me taking pics all the while. I’m so excited about Scott and Kaitlyn’s wedding in the Bend area this summer!

Tori & Carter
A Domaine Roy & fils Engagement

Tori and Carter are a gorgeous and kind couple who love travel, good food & wine, and most of all, laughter. I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Tori when she was the Maid of Honor at her sister, Libby’s stunning Portland wedding, over seven years ago! We hit it off and instantly clicked. I was squealing with delight when she reached out to me via Instagram to let me know it was her turn to tie the knot with the love of her life! It was non-stop laughs when we met up on a perfect autumn day at the beautiful Domaine Roy & fils in Dundee, Oregon. We walked in the vines and took in the epic views from the terrace. Of course ending the session in a little dancing and a delicious wine tasting at sunset. A perfect evening in wine country. Very honored and excited to be documenting Carter and Tori’s wedding very soon at the Portland Golf Club!

Carly & Alex
An Oregon Coast Engagement

Carly and Alex are a fun loving and kind couple with a love of nature and adventures. To replicate one of their first dates, we headed to Cannon Beach at the Oregon Coast. We also fit in a quick stop to Ecola State Park with sweeping views of the shoreline, mountains and ocean for miles. From adventuring into the deep grasses at Ecola to splashing in the Pacific Ocean waves, we had a total blast and I’m looking forward to their wedding this month at the gorgeous Scholls Valley Lodge.

Jordan & Steven
A Vancouver Waterfront Engagement

Jordan and Steven and I met up along the Vancouver waterfront last fall for their fun engagement session. From the urban vibe of tall buildings, modern bridges and a killer waterfront view to the more intimate time over drinks at the stunning Dosalas Restaurant we had a total blast! Loved their champagne spray moment of pure hilarious-ness! (is that even a word? If not, it should be!) They are one of the many couples effected by Covid and finally have their big fun day planned for this month! So happy for this beautiful and kind couple!

Monica and Jim
A Mountain View Orchards Engagement

Monica and Jim and I met up in spring and Oregon, yet again, proved to be unpredictable with the weather… But the love was delivered!  The stormy evening took place in a field of tulips at the mesmerizing Mountain View Orchards venue. Despite the weather we had a blast, made magic and then Mt Hood peeked out for the grand finale. Monica and Jim, a gorgeous and super fun couple are getting married this weekend, and I’m so excited! . Honored and excited to document their wedding at Amaterra!

Anna & David
An Ironlight Wedding in Lake Oswego

Anna and David are such a fun and chill couple! They decided to tie the knot at Lake Oswego’s Ironlight, a gorgeous venue not far from the waterfront with rooftop deck and plenty of space for dancing. Wedding planner Catherine Sammon with Bridal Bliss PNW, did a wonderful job organizing the day from cocktail hour to ceremony to reception. When Anna walked down the aisle, David played “Blackbird” on his acoustic guitar and the guests were all moved to tears. There wasn’t a dry eye in the venue (except for their son, Jack, who was fast asleep on grandma’s shoulder)! Anna was absolutely stunning in her Essense of Australia gown from Ania Bridal along with makeup and hair from Blossom and Beauty. The party was epic with music pumping, guests dancing on the literal rooftop while watching the sunset. Congratulations Anna and David!

Lucy & Matt
A Smith Rock Engagement

Lucy and Matt are a wondrous couple full of joy and laughter. They love the outdoors and we met up recently at the iconic Smith Rock in the Bend, Oregon area for their stellar engagement session. I loved their wolf shirts, which we just had to capture with their cute pup, Ursula. The weather was especially great for late winter and Bend, Oregon provided for an amazing sunset with lots of lens flair and perfectly windswept hair (and Lucy’s skirt!) I love movement in photos like this so I was squealing with happiness at the magical art we made together and the fun we had. Can’t wait for their intimate Mt. Hood wedding at Timberline Lodge soon!

Sudarshan & Priyata
A Nepali Engagement & Bridal Session at Mt. Hood

Sudarshan and Priyata and I met up at the gorgeous Mountain View Orchards on a beautiful summer evening.  We started with their engagements among the vines and the apple and pear trees on the property. The couple then changed into their traditional Nepali wedding wear for their bridal session. I loved the red and gold and the way the glitter on Priyata’s dress sparkled in the sun. They are having a traditional Nepali wedding in their backyard this weekend and then a huge party with lots of family and friends in the fall. So honored and excited to document this wonderful couple’s big day(s)!

Josephine & Allan
An Oregon Coast Engagement

I met Josephine & Allan and their sweet Corgi, Kobe last summer at the Oregon Coast, Cannon Beach to be specific! This is where the sweet couple shared a lot of fun memories and we continued that shared history with their beautiful engagement session. The coast weather is always unpredictable and we lucked out with beautiful weather. The sky was rapidly changing from white to light blue to dark indigo to then an amazing sunset. I loved the way Haystack Rock was showing up for us as we caught high-tide and were able to get pretty close. Josephine’s dress danced in the wind while Kobe ran around and we laughed a ton and had a blast. Can’t wait to document Josephine and Allan’s wedding this month in SE Portland.
