Hannah and Jacob
A Downtown Portland Urban Engagement

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

Kerry and Jason! What a stunning couple and a match made in heaven (aka Portland!) Lindsay, my talented assistant and I met up with K&J in April for their engagements around the Pearl, the Waterfront and Downtown. I love the mix of fun and funky with romantic and classic.

Meghan and Tim
Washington Park and Portland City Grill Wedding


Family, love, laughs, forest dancing and a stunning couple! Meghan and Tim are a match made in heaven. The ceremony took place at Washington Park, under a canopy of trees and sky and the reception looked over the city from the elegant views of Portland City Grill. Meghan looked ahh-mazing in her Jim Hjelm dress, her makeup was done by the lovely Austie Eckley. Flowers were done by Sammy’s. You may remember this gorgeous couple from the concept shoot I did in Spring. The emotion, smiles and energy were inspiring. Thank you times a million Meghan and Tim, your wedding was perfect!

Petersen Family Update!

Hannah again, with more gorgeous family shoots 🙂 Allow me to reintroduce the Petersen Family, who you may remember from their 2009 family shoot in downtown Portland!

Isaiah, mom and dad had a fun shoot on the Park blocks of downtown Portland. These autumn leaves feature so heavily in our shoots for a reason – they’re beautiful, and they never last!

Look at that grin! Little kids are the coolest EVER.

Isaiah, mom and dad had such a nice little family shoot – these pictures really show off their closeness and they capture Isaiah as he grows up so nicely 🙂 Hope you love your sneak peek, all! xo Hannah
