April and Sam
A Woodsy Oxbow Park Wedding

“But darling, you are the only exception”  The only exception by Paramore

I recently had the honor of photographing a woodsy and magical picnic wedding celebration at Oxbow Park. April and Sam actually had a wedding in both of their birthplaces: Portland and India and wanted to celebrate with close family and friends with a fun picnic, croquet, yummy potluck and lots of darling photos. I love April’s dress, made by her very talented friend Rebekah Fink, and the locally picked wild flower bouquets. Hope you love the sneak peek A&S!

Erica & Mike
Portland White House Wedding



Erica and Mike are a splendid couple that I had the
honor of photographing last month. Their unique afternoon wedding took
place on
June 13th at the incredible Portland White House. I love photographing
the White House, which is a historic Bed and Breakfast located in NE
Portland and filled with vintage antiques and furniture. Erica and
Mike’s intimate affair was vintage-inspired and filled with unique and
fun details. Erica created her own feather hair piece as well as the
fun pink bridesmaid’s hair clips. The feathers were also Incorporated into the boutonnieres, made by the talented folks at Broadway Florist. The colors were hot pink and soft
blue, with vintage birdcages as centerpieces and a cake topper from the
1930’s that Erica’s dad painted to match the couple! (so cool and
adorable) The ceremony and reception were filled with happiness and love
and I am SO happy to have been in attendance. Hope you love the sneak
peek Erica and Mike and Congrats! Your comments are appreciated if you
have the time 🙂

Ali & Johnny
Spirit of Portland Wedding


I recently had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful and fun wedding, as well as another photographer’s sermon.. The Reverend Craig Mitchelldyer. When Craig asked if I would shoot his little sister’s wedding, I jumped at the chance! I’m a huge fan of Craig’s photo work, and epic lighting skill and I loved meeting his family as well! His darling daughter Jordyn was the flower girl and Grandpa walked Ali down the aisle! Ali and Johnny are a super sweet couple and hosted a beautiful wedding at a stunning location! The ceremony and reception took place on the top deck of The Spirit of PortlandNicole Wagner did an awesome job on Ali’s make-up as well! Thanks so much for the opportunity Craig and Ali and Johnny! It was a lot of fun 🙂
