Jennylyn & Daniel
A Chinese Garden and Waterfront Engagement

I met sweet and playful couple, Jennylyn and Daniel, at the magical Lan Su Chinese Gardens in Portland’s Chinatown. The gardens don’t allow professional photography within its walls but the outside made for quite the impressive scene! The simplicity of the wall’s architecture detailed with lively green plants really let the couple’s fun personalities shine.

Jennylyn and Daniel brought some hip jackets to switch up their looks and I’m confident we snapped some cool shots for their mixtape that may or may not drop!  As the sun set lower into the sky we captured lots of laughs and playful poses at the SE waterfront. This stylish couple from California is planning an intimate destination Portland wedding this month! Thank you for choosing me to convey the special love you share together.

Elizabeth & Tim
A Crater Lake Engagement

Famous for the water’s deep blue color and pristine clarity, Crater Lake is a unique earth formation that I was honored to photograph. Elizabeth & Tim have connection to this sacred place. Being able to capture their love in such a historic and sentimental location warms my heart. Elizabeth and Tim shared genuine smiles and laughter as they enjoyed each other’s company sitting on a Pendleton blanket under a vast blue sky with epic mountainscapes surrounding us. There was so much love between them, it felt like no one in the world (not even me) was there with them! They are set to get married this month at Bingham Estate and I’m so thrilled to be documenting their first steps together as husband and wife!

Christy and Addison
A Seattle Engagement

Having the opportunity to travel to neighboring PNW cities to meet my lovely couples is an honor that I deeply cherish. I met adorable and fun couple, Christy and Addison, in Washington for their Seattle engagement! I loved the variety of Seattle we explored beginning with Volunteer Park Conservatory. The 15,000 square foot glass structure is a product of years of thought, design, and vision beginning as early as 1878 until its completion in 1912. The conservatory, originally modeled after London’s Crystal Palace, added its famous greenhouses by 1922. We continued our time together at various locations within Pike Place Market where the couple’s laid-back and sophisticated style shined. The quaint coffee shop, Storyville was a location for a many a date and the famous Gum Wall with over 20 years of gum stuck to it were just a few cool local spots we visited. We also discovered a nearby rooftop to capture some fab skyline photos that included the iconic Seattle Space Needle. SO happy for this smart and sweet couple who are getting married this August!

Cat and Sam
Ann Arbor, Michigan Engagements

The vintage wallpaper in Cat and Sam’s apartment is simply wonderful, but not as great as this beautiful, kind and creative couple. Cat and Sam live in Ann Arbor, they met in DC and they are getting married in Oregon this summer. I met Cat when she was the maid of honor at Callie and Andy’s unforgettable wedding. This photo shoot was especially inspiring for me because I lived in Ann Arbor for over 6 years and that’s where I started my career in wedding photography while earning my BFA in Photography from the University of Michigan. Cat and Sam are both graduate students at UofM and it was so fun to hear and see how things are the same, yet so different. We discovered hidden ivy walls, rode bikes and had too much fun at at a bar called bar. Needless to say, I cant wait for their wedding.

Adrianne and Daren
Livermore Wine Country Wedding


Adrianne and Daren’s dream day was garden-inspired and gorgeous! I’m so honored that A&D chose mt to document their destination wedding in Livermore Valley Wine Country in California. The ceremony and reception took place at the stunning Casa Real at Ruby Hill Vineyard. Adrianne looked absolutely beautful in her Angel Sanchez gown, and Daren was a handsome groom with his Louis Vuitton cufflinks and white tie/vest combo. The day was nothing short of perfect and Erica and I had a blast documenting the day! Thank you so much Adrianne and Daren, and congrats to you both!
