Cue the wedding bells! Nic and Bri are getting married this month at the historic Grey Gables Estate and I’m so excited to see this kind and sweet couple make it official! Their engagement was at the gorgeous Alloro Vineyards, a tuscan inspired winery and tasting room in Sherwood, Oregon. It was a fun and romantic photoshoot as we wandered around the sweeping vineyard & beautiful grounds. The chemistry between them was so magical and we even had the chance to sneak some intimate moments in the wine cellar, since they are wine club members. I know their wedding will be a beautiful one, so stay tuned!
This stunning Cathedral Park engagement session with Kristin and Jay was so much fun and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple or a more gorgeous evening. Kristin and Jay first set eyes on each other at a Seahawks game in Seattle. As fate would have it, they were brought together again in Portland several years later and things just clicked! We were joined by their dog, Russell (as in Russell Wilson! Go Seahawks!) and we spent a lovely evening wandering the beach beneath St. John’s Bridge, capturing stunning sunset photos along the river, and laughing over old memories the two shared. They’re getting married next Spring at Abbey Road Farm in Carlton, Oregon and I can’t wait!
Anna and Travis said their vows one year ago at the beautiful Mt. View Orchard in Hood River, Oregon wedding. Beautiful rows of apple trees and the silhouette of Mt. Hood made for a gorgeous location for a simple yet elegant wedding in the orchard. It was the perfect backdrop for a day filled to the brim with excitement and oh so much love! After photographing their snowy vintage-inspired engagement at Timberline Lodge, I knew it would be a thoughtful, casual and beautiful event. Anna stunned guests and Travis alike in her BHLDN gown. Her rustic bouquet and the florals were created by Travis’s mom, a florist in Napa. The wild flowers really added to the rustic location and I loved the mis-matched bridesmaids dresses. The ceremony followed with an amazing fresh meal from a Hood River local food truck, plenty to cheers, and a flash hail storm!!! What happens when a hail-storm hits your outdoor wedding? You dance all night to the incredible beats of DJ Jimbo of course! (Did someone say conga?) What a wedding! Many happy memories, Anna and Travis.
Wowzah! What a stunner of a wedding! Ellerey & Dan are such a fun, laid-back, intelligent and gorgeous couple and their wedding was pretty much the same! Waverley Country Club is a historic, elegant and beautiful venue on the Willamette River. Ellerey & Dan planned a super fun celebration with so many unique and imaginative details. The Llamas were such a delight (RIP Rojo!) and brought smiles to everyone’s face and the neon light- champagne escort card wall was bonkers elegant and fun! With stunning florals by Blum, perfect coordination & styling from Bridal Bliss, entertainment by Event Team, and a gorgeous 5 tier cake from Dream Cakes, this was one amazing wedding for the books! Happy 1 year anniversary Ellerey & Dan! Cheers on a lifelong adventure of laughter, joy and love!
Thanks so much to Lights in the Attic for creating a unique and personal video for my bio! Jeff is a super talented videographer and you can check out his site here. I decided to create a fun promo video for clients to get to know me and who I am… (and yes, at times I’m totally cheesy!) Enjoy 🙂
Jenni teaches at Barre 3 in the Pearl and we were able to photograph inside during the rain for some awesome pics! How bad ass is this pic!?
Love all these pics that truly embody J&K’s personalities! check out Barr 3 for an awesome workout that combines ballet barre, yoga and pilates!
My personal fave. Love the elements of nature coming together here!
What a hot couple!
Another fave. Check her eyelashes! Wow!
Their Pearl apt. is ultra hip and has great light and color!
Jenni and Kyley and I all met up recently for a quintessential Portland photo shoot, with a little bit of sun and a lot of rain. Luckily, J&K live in the Pearl and we had a few awesome opportunities to duck for cover and create personal pics of the couple in their hip apartment, and in the courtyard of the impressive building. They are also in the process of selling their space, so these pics will be really meaningful after they’ve moved and can reminisce about their first space together as a couple. I’m really looking forward to their Aug. 28th wedding and hope they love the sneak peek!
How fun and awesome is this pic…partly because of the No Parking detail, mostly because of Kaley’s awesome hair!
We found this great truck in a nearby parking lot, but much to our surprise their was a killer dog in the front seat. (well, maybe not killer, but really scary!)
I’m in love with the motion involved with this series.
This building is so very 1940’s Dick Tracy…so rad
Two great shots from my awesome new second photographer Liam. Great pics of a hot couple!
Kaley and Brent along with Liam and I met up recently for a creative and fun engagement shoot in the Pearl District and China Town in NW Portland. Kaley and Brent are a really fun and intelligent couple who are getting married in August at the lovely Waverly Country Club. I’m really looking forward to documenting their first steps together as husband and wife. Hope you love the sneak peek K&B!
David proposed to Britt with 1000 paper cranes that he folded. The tradition comes from an ancient Japanese legend, which grants the receiver of the cranes with 1000 years of happiness and prosperity.
Love these vintage-inspired images in a cool phone booth. These things are practically vintage!
David brought his bow and arrow and we set up some imaginative theme photos. I love love love this image!
Britt is in medical school and is almost Dr. Brittany! Her wonderful parents bought her this medical bag to keep her supplies in.
Their dog, Tycho, was in tow and was the sweetest thing ever! How cute is it that they all match!
Britt and David are tying the knot in September of this year at the incredible Lac de Fleur gardens. We recently met up in SE Portland for their unique engagement photo session, which was inspired by all things B&D! They brought their favorite things that meant the most to them, including David’s bow and arrow, Britt’s medical bag, and of course, their awesome dog, Tycho! Britt and David are a creative and intelligent couple and I can’t wait for their wedding! Hope you love the sneak peek B&D!
I love the fun and nature loving energy of this great couple!
In love with this pic and the incredible backdrop of cherry blossoms!
Zoe is an impressive Mastiff, who’s actually the runt! Her mom is 98 lbs! She’s a cutiepie!
Jaimee and Steve are a really fun couple with awesome energy and spirit. Jaimee and Steve really love nature and are inspired by the Oregon rivers, forests and trees and I love that! Travis Shields, of Shields Films fame, and I recently met up with the cute couple in Laurelhurst Park in SE Portland with their wonderful dog, Zoe. I’m really excited to be documenting their wedding taking place in July at Timberline, one of my favorite venues! J&S- Hope you love the sneak peek and I can’t wait for you’re amazing wedding!
