Caroline & Scott
A Coopers Hall Wedding

Scott and Caroline planned an elegant, fun and colorful Coopers Hall Urban Winery wedding, which is one of my very favorite spots in Portland. From the hip industrial architecture and plants adorning the space to incredible food, wine and staff, this place is really quite amazing! I loved Caroline and Scott’s kind quiet love and we had a blast getting to know each other better at their Rhododendron garden engagements. Their wedding started with getting ready pics at the iconic Hotel Eastlund and we stopped along the way to the venue for fun and creative photos. Loved loved love Caroline’s bridal style with her tea-length dress from House of Mooshki Bridal and Jimmy Choos. The very fun & colorful florals were from Here Comes the Bloom. Epic entertainment from John Ross Music. Here’s what Caroline had to say about her wedding vision: “I really looked forward to walking down the stairs of Coopers Hall and down the aisle with my father to the song “Sweet Caroline”. The song was a surprise to our guests, but they all enjoyed joining in the chorus! Our first dance was also a wonderful moment, accompanied by John Ross playing acoustic guitar. It was nice to enjoy the moment together, and we both were excited that all the formal parts were over, and we could dance the rest of the night away with all of our guests! We also loved taking pictures with Jessica all around downtown Portland. Having complete strangers congratulate us and enjoy the day with us is something we won’t forget. Her wonderful advice for other couples planning their big day: Choose the things that are important to you, and let everything else go. Otherwise you’ll get stuck in the spiral that is wedding planning, and lose sight of the fact that the act of getting married is the only thing that really matters that day.”  HECK YES! Thank you Caroline and Scott and happy one year anniversary! Also- this wedding was just featured over on Boho Weddings, a very cool European planning blog!

Patience & Egan
A Sentinel Hotel Wedding

“Our vision was for a super elegant and formal wedding with a reggae and hip hop sound track. Everyone told us those would clash but we were determined. Frank ocean for my walk down the aisle, Popcaan for our entrance to the reception and Bob Marley, Lauryn Hill, Sir, SZA, Nipsey Hussle and J Cole in between. It was romantic and elegant with a vibe full of soul and culture. Exactly what we wanted.” Patience and Egan’s wedding was elegant, chill and oh-so very fun! With a timeless and classy vibe that only the downtown Portland hotel, the Sentinel could provide, Patience wore a stunner of a dress from Ania Bridal and her gorgeous makeup and hair was by Olivia Hawthorne Makeup with detail-perfect coordination from the impeccable able Bridal Bliss family. Florals by the one and only Leah with Indigo Garden. As soon as Frank Ocean via Paradox Productions faded in as Patience walked in during the ceremony ; I was floored and knew that I was in for a new take on “formal”. Needless to say it was everything and more and I absolutely loved this couple, their style, their laughter and their sweet love and I am so very happy for these two on their one year anniversary. See their fun PDX engagements here.

Christina and Isaac
A Blue Hour Portland Wedding

Capturing Christina and Isaac’s timeless and modern wedding was a dream! The couple got ready at The Nines Hotel, a contemporary and stylish luxury hotel located in the heart of downtown Portland. Christina looked so chic in her BHLDN wedding gown; a perfect combination of simplicity and intricate detail. Her classic flower arrangements, created by the talented team at Geranium Lake, complimented the bride’s ensemble exquisitely. The groom’s style was on point in his custom created tux by Suit Supply. Isaac even incorporated a creative detail by adding an embroidered inside joke that he and Christina had shared during law school into the lining of his jacket. The architecture of our iconic Portland photo locations, The Treasury and The Benson Hotel, were stunning and really encapsulated the vibe of the couple’s wedding day. Bold lines and modern shapes met with the historic elegance of the structure made for the ultimate venue composite. Christina and Isaac looked right at home with one another amidst the sleek corinthian columns. Following an intimate civil ceremony, Christina and Isaac treated their guests to an incredible experience at their contemporary Bluehour Restaurant reception! Guests had the pleasure of indulging in a 5 course meal that included caviar, Dom Perignon Champagne, and a beautifully minimalistic cake provided by Bluehour. Friends and family enjoyed each other’s company as they danced and celebrated the happy couple’s special Portland wedding day. I can’t thank Christina and Isaac enough for creating such an exquisite day and for entrusting me to capturing it. Wishing all the love and happiness for this sophisticated & sweet couple!

Jackie and Jordan
A Portland Rooftop Engagement

I had the best time photographing gorgeous couple Jackie and Jordan alongside their cute pup, Buddy! We captured stunning photos amidst the classic Portland sign and downtown along the Park Blocks. I love when the Portland Art Museum has epic displays that make for interesting and artistic backdrops. We then enjoyed some VIP access to gorgeous sun kissed rooms and an incredible rooftops inside a Portland high-rise. This was quite epic as I totally love photographing on rooftops and this rooftop was non-accessible to the public, so it made the experience quite incredible. Enjoying each other’s company high above the city as the sun set below Portland, Jackie and Jordan danced and laughed together as they toasted to a bright future. Wishing these two all the love and happiness and I’m so excited to be documenting their destination wedding in Napa coming this May. Jackie and Jordan- Thank you for choosing me to capture the undeniable love you two share!

Ande and Michael
A Downtown Sentinel Hotel

Elegant, Timeless, Classic and Fun!!! Loved getting to know this couple and the fun adventure we had during their fun engagement session. The lovely Elizabeth with Bridal Bliss coordinated and Blum Florals created the AMAZING florals with gorgeous and unique details (loved the blueberry gold dish centerpieces and the hand-painted masterpiece cake by Dreamcakes) and a fun party. The sweet ceremony took place at the historic First Presbyterian Church in downtown Portland where you could actually feel the love within the rafters! The classic and beyond stunning Governor Ballroom at the Sentinel Hotel was breathtaking. As Michael twirled Ande into the night, the incredible band Precious Byrd played on and kept the party going. As you can tell this was an evening to remember and we made some magic art. Loved this day and thank you Ande and Michael for trusting me with documenting your true love story! What a night!

Jessica and Bradley
An Evergreen Portland Wedding

Jessica and Bradley wed on a gorgeous day in spring of this year.  This intelligent and stylish couple had a wedding night to remember and I absolutely loved the color palette and decor they chose which incorporates golds, pinks, Himalayan sea salt, succulents and candlelight at the stunning Evergreen Event Space in Portland! The wonderful Katie Wilgus with Gather Events coordinated the day while Briar and Ivy created the stunning florals. The bridesmaids all held wreaths, which was a unique and elegant detail. Jessica had pretty and natural makeup and hair by Cassandra Kennedy Beauty and her incredible dress was from Daughters of Simone. The guests dined on delicious food from the award-winning team at White Pepper catering. Jessica and Bradley opted for the talented Essentials band over a dj, which makes for a classy and fun evening of dancing and party! The traditional jewish hora dance done to live music was especially memorable and hilariously fun to document! A fun and classy wedding with low-key vibes – yes please! Thanks Jessica and Bradley for choosing me to document your day!

Jen and Vic
A Portland Art Museum Wedding

Jen and Vic evoke grace and style and they light up every room they walk into. I was honored to capture this beautiful couple this summer at their dream wedding taking place in Portland. The traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony took place at a private home, with the nuptials at the gorgeous St. Mary’s Cathedral and the reception at the ever-timeless Portland Art Museum. The style was on point with Jen’s stunning Monique Lhuillier dress and Vic’s elegant Tom Ford tux. We captured the wedding party at Fields park in NW Portland and around the grounds at the museum with an emphasis on romance and modernity. The immaculate reception space was dripping with orchids and roses created by Jordan at Blum Design in Flowers and the delicious food was catered by the A plus team at Art of Catering. The cake… honestly a work of art made by creative forces at Dream Cakes and it truly was a cake of dreams at 5 tiers!  I loved documenting the mix of colors and traditions and the endless array of stunning details. The couple treated the guests to the incredible beats of the one and only DJ Turbulence and it was a non-stop dance party and a night to remember. Congratulations Jen and Vic!
