Come on in, the water’s fine.

Kami and Brett are a super kind-hearted couple. We photographed at Rejuvenation in SE Portland.

They met while parking their cars at the same time beneath the Hawthorne bridge, this is the exact location.

Kami and Brett are such an awesome couple who are getting married in May of this year. For their engagement session we had quite the adventure! We started at an architectural salvage shop because K&B just bought their first home together and love to work on home projects together. Then we went to the waterfront beneath the Hawthorne bridge to document where they first met. I was completely inspired by their story and their positive energy and I can’t wait to be a part of their wedding soon!

Portland_Engagement_session.jpg Sally and John are a really kind and wonderful couple.

Portland_Wedding_Engagements4.jpg This shadow of Sally and John together makes me smile.


Sally and John and I met up at Laurelhurst Park in SE Portland for their fun engagement shoot. The weather was perfect, the colors were incredible and Sally and John are in love… What could be better? Sally and John met on Alberta Street and are inspired by nature, God and each other. I can’t wait to be a part of their July wedding at the World Forestry Center in the Hoyt Arboretum! Enjoy the sneak peek S&J!

are you kidding is the new yes.

Engagement_Portland2.jpg Amy’s eye’s are an incredible blue!


When I asked Kevin and Amy about their engagement they both laughed a little and looked at each other. I was wondering what really happened!? As it turns out, Kevin was working in London at the time and Amy came to visit him. They went for a walk (in the rain) and Amy wanted to head back to the flat. Little did Amy know that Kevin was on a mission to propose to his high school sweet heart and carried on with the walk. When the moment happened and Kevin pulled out a stunning solitaire and the question: “Will you marry me?” happened, Amy, out of shock and joy and surprise blurted out “Are you Kidding!” Of course that was a Yes and I can’t wait to document their Eugene Oregon Vineyard Wedding in July. Thanks so much Amy and Kevin for making it to Portland from your lovely home in Cali and for dealing with the crazy lady, the rain, and the cold. Hope you love the photos and hop up and down with excitement. jh

Courtney & Brad
Eleuthera Bahamas Wedding

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas19.jpgMeet Brad and Courtney, an incredibly kind-hearted, fun and exuberant couple.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas2.jpgThe rehearsal dinner was held at the beautiful Sky Beach Club. The night was filled with hip-shaking island music, a fish fry and good laughs and a hilarious toast given by Brad’s Dad.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas5.jpg This welcome bag was given to all the guests which had lots of thoughtful treats, a bottle of wine, a map of Eleuthera Island and the keepsake canvas beach bag, which replicated the artistic invite. This is just one example of how friendly and sweet B&C are.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas9.jpg Fun shots of the guys. Brad’s coat created by Portland’s own Este’s Men’s Store.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas12.jpg Courtney was a breathtaking bride, wearing a custom dress by Phillips Bridal, located in Portland.


Destination_Wedding_Bahamas14.jpg The exquisite sunset ceremony was held on the Caribbean Sea. All the guests and couple were barefoot with their feet in the soft sand.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas11.jpg The centerpieces were created using vintage tea canisters, which Courtney had been collecting for the occasion. The flowers included a colorful array of roses, zinnias, mums and tropical greens.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas20.jpg The wedding took place Cocodimama, an elegant and charming beach resort with an Italian rustic menu. The rooms, service, food and atmosphere were beyond amazing.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas22.jpg The dancing, laughs and fun went on throughout the night.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas30.jpg Judith Arnell created the sophisticated custom wedding bands. Danae Hernandez with I Dream of Letters was the brilliant calligrapher behind the invite design.

Destination_Wedding_Bahamas25.jpg A relaxing and yummy good bye brunch was held the next day at the Sky Beach Club.



As I start to reminisce about the beauty and power of Courtney and Brad’s Bahamian wedding I get goosebumps, as the memories of the sea, the vivid colors and the warm-hearted nature of everyone involved starts flooding back. This makes me so happy. Brad’s genuine and caring nature and Courtney’s fun-loving and compassionate personality welcomed us and showed us why their family and friends traveled to be near them on this day. Travis and I thank you for having us there on your remarkable day.
