Sarah and Joe are a rad couple who I’m happy to know! We met up in the Industrial area of N. Portland and had a lot of fun among the trees and brick buildings along N. Mississippi ave. Kirstie Wight Makeup created Sarah’s beautiful and natural look for the photos. Their Gorge Crest vineyard wedding this Aug. will be a blast. Can’t wait! (and yes, it’s true that Joe did flips!)
When Katie and Chris walk into a room, the energy lights up, people smile and eyes sparkle! I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Kate for about 5 years and when she met her soul mate, Chris, I have been happy to know him as a friend as well! Kate is a phenomenal wedding photographer and she owns Kate Kelly Photography. We had an adventurous day of shooting around Portland for their day-after session. Since K&C had a destination wedding, we thought it would be fun to have some bridal portraits around Portland, their hometown. Kirstie Wight makeup did Kate’s hair and makeup and styling and I love the fresh vintage feel this gorgeous couple embody. We finished off the shoot at Lincoln Restaurant with incredible food created with love by Jenn Louis. Check out Culinary Artistry, Lincoln’s catering division, if you’re looking for catering!I am so happy for you both Kate and Chris. You make me smile, and the world is a better place because of your love! xoxo
I was so excited to have the third annual Client Appreciation Party and Open House at my new studio on Mississippi Ave. A huge thanks to everyone who came out to make this fun party happen! The gorgeous tables, linens and glassware and bistro lights were from the experts at West Coast Event Productions. The stunning flowers made the Spring theme alive, from the fabulous Jordan at Blum Design in Flowers. The music was awesome, thanks to Lisa spinning vinyl via DJ Bad Wizard. The fun photobooth was insane and always a party hit, the Original Photo Booth makes it happen! The lovely Hors d’oeuvres were created with love from Tarri Butler, with Tarri’s Table. Mini yum yum cupcakes were the perfect treat from Cupcake Jones. My makeup and hair and tons of help and love from Kirstie Wight with Kirstie Wight Makeup. Photos taken by the talented Elijah Hoffman. The biggest thanks goes to my clients for making my dreams a success and my life a happy and fulfilled one. Thank you so so much!

Kate Davis and I go way back to when I first moved into Union Station and saw her perform at Wilf’s Restaurant. Travis and I couldn’t believe that a voice like her’s and base skill that she was only 16! Now in college at the Manhattan School of Music, her career is about to explode! I’ve been photographing her for her albums and professional head shots for a while! Check her out on March 5th in Portland! http://www.katedavismusic.com/
