Anna & Travis
A Mountain View Orchard Wedding

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.

Elizabeth & Tim
Bingham Estate Wedding

Wow! Elizabeth and Tim’s gorgeous wedding had all the feels (crazy laughter but mostly sweet tears) at Bingham Estate exactly a year ago! After first meeting Elizabeth and Tim during their very epic Crater Lake engagement session– I knew their wedding would be a love fest! Their wedding was like stepping onto the pages of a folktale…. only this Snow White leaned in and traded in her little cottage for a rustic estate and a gorgeous gown from Anna’s Bridal. With red brick archways overgrown in vines and wrought iron balconies, the fantastical Bingham Estate was the perfect setting for Tim and Elizabeth to declare their love among their best friends and family. Florals by Blum perfectly complimented the gorgeous grounds and old-time classic garden feel. Thanks to Nora and the Bridal Bliss team the ceremony was perfectly planned and there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience when Tim first set eyes on Elizabeth. After the ceremony Elizabeth and Tim and guests mingled on the lawn and had music by Event Team Entertainment.Then introduced into the first dance to “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole and guests enjoyed a delicious three course meal courtesy of White Pepper with a stunning cake and dessert from JaCiva’s. The remainder of the night was a whirl of dancing beneath the stars in celebration of Elizabeth and Tim’s sweet love. Many magical moments to come, Elizabeth and Tim!

Ellie & Nick
A Sunset Cove B&B Michigan Wedding

Ellie and I met while attending the School of Art at the University of Michigan during a “Art of the Nudes” summer class taught by the famous New York photographer Ernestine Ruben. It was a crazy amazing class where we photographed nude models in the woods around Ann Arbor (which later inspired me to start my boudoir brand Peekaboo Portland!) Needless to say Ellie and I hit it off right away that experience connected us ever since. We later worked together for years at both Cafe Zola and The Earle Restaurant (heyyy Earle crew!) in downtown Ann Arbor and even had a joint art show at a well known underground gallery bar together. I’m so lucky to know Ellie, (now an incredible pastry chef & baker) and I am so glad she found a fellow artist & soulmate in Nick. Nick is a musician in an amazing band called the Little Traps. He’s hilarious and they make a crazy magical couple. I am still smitten over their lakeside Michigan wedding one year ago today. The ceremony took place at Sunset Cove Bed & Breakfast, a stunner of a log cabin tucked between two lakes with sprawling views. Ellie wore a White by Vera Wang satin gown and couldn’t have looked more elegant and dazzling while walking down the aisle. She’s always been a total babe, but her bridal style was just perfect. (umm her nails though?) As you can probably guess from the photo, this was the moment Nick first saw Ellie and he was absolutely floored. #bestgroomreactionever The ceremony was coordinated by the talented Vows and Veils Wedding Crew and filled with special details like custom flasks for the groomsmen and hand-tied wildflower bouquets. After the ceremony, guests busted out on the dance floor to rock ‘n roll ballads, while enjoying food from Eat and a glorious custom Sweet Heather Anne black wedding cake with hand-applied sugar sequins. Wow! Rather than the traditional mother/son and father/daughter dances the couple chose to dance with their entire immediate families and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. (including my own! Also- can this be the new tradition forever? ) Cheers to Ellie and Nick, may the years to come be filled with endless happiness, creative genius and magic love. Love you guys!

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!

Monica & Jeremy’s Engagement

I met up with Monica and Jeremy at the Broadway Bridge for the quintessential Portland backdrop. We started their engagement photoshoot there and finished at the beautiful Hoyt Arboretum on a perfect Autumn day. These two make a very kind and cute couple who exude fun! I love that they made their engagement photos into a save the date photo card to send to family and friends. How cute are their cut outs and pin-wheels that they made together 🙂

I can’t wait to be a part of their big day at the Portland Art Museum! Congratulations on your engagement Monica and Jeremy!

Joanne and Cory
Rocky Butte Engagements

I recently met up with Joanne and Cory in NE Portland which is their old (and cute!) neighborhood. The two of them are very genuine, laid-back and fun and they make an adorable couple! We photographed their favorite theater, the Roseway, stopped for a tasty milkshake at the historic Fairley’s Pharmacy, and finished up their photoshoot with some great lighting at the Rocky Butte, which I had never been too before, so was blown away with the view and architecture.  Joanne and Cory are getting married this September in Portland and we’re so excited for their wedding!
