Their lovely letter press invites and unique rings, alongside the stunning bride, whose makeup was in the good hands of Nicole Wagner… Ahhmazing!
Love this image~ Beachum looking dapper wearing Dolce&Gabbana and Nicole transcended “bride” in her silver Vera Wang with a backdrop of modern day graffiti in SE Portland.
Love that the tables were named after the Portland precincts, and their favors were customized jam jars, created by the couple from Beachum’s family recipe! The incredible Mandi Downs with Blush Bridal Consultation did an outstanding job making the day run smoothly.
The West End Theater fit their modern day vintage vibe perfectly.
Instead of the traditional cake cutting, the couple chose to break creme brule. (my personal favorite)
Considering this was our last wedding shoot of 2009, I can’t contain my excitement about how incredible and perfect this wedding was. From the super hot style, the gorgeous flowers (created by Nicole’s grandmother) to their first dance song by Neko Case, I couldn’t have planned a more perfect day for this artistic couple. Nicole and Beachum are filled with compassion, sincerity and kindness and I’m so so so honored to have been in the presence of their family and friends as we celebrated their palpable love. Thank you so much to Nicole and Beachum for sharing the perfect wedding to close out a wonderous year of weddings. Love you guys big.
My grandparents are incredible and I’m so blessed to have them in my life! Shirley and Doug (aka Grams and Gramps) are super active and love tennis, bridge, their Christmas tree farm and their mystery club, which is this cool club they belong to that holds their meetings at a mystery location each month! I recently discovered these photos of them and wanted to share in the bliss.I love the wedding pic on the doorstep- taken 60 years ago! This photo is a testament to my passion and mission as a wedding photographer… To document timeless and endless love that future generations will smile about, if only for a moment.
Erica and I were honored to document Aubri and Byron’s wedding on August 21st at the amazing Queen Anne Victorian Mansion.
This remarkable Victorian home in North Portland is perfect for eclectic and elegant weddings! The home is filled with 17th and 18th century antiques. Aubri and Byron’s wedding was incredible and matched the vintage-inspired feel of
the location. The details were immaculate and ranging from Aubri’s vintage pill box hat and veil to bouquets of feathers in the deep purples and greens of the day. The stunning bouquets were created by the talented Quinn of Quinn in the City. It was very vintage and so unique! Watch for the fun details and a story of the day on Wedding’s Portland Style in the near future! The ceremony was poetic and
intimate and the reception was lovely and filled with great toasts,
laughs and a lot of fun dancing. Thank you SO MUCH Aubri and Byron for
inviting me and Erica to celebrate your unique wedding with you and your wonderful family
and friends! Hope you enjoy the preview… Your comments and thoughts are appreciated:)
Ali and Jared’s wedding was incredibly beautiful and inspiring! From the vineyard vistas to the garden elegance, Garden Vineyards is a stunning venue located in Hillsboro, Oregon. Jared and Ali looked amazing and exchanged vows with family and friends and their awesome dog, who also joined them on the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife! The flowers (insanely awesome!) were done by one of Ali’s close friends:) The exquisite food was both vegan friendly and delicious by the talented team at Art of Catering. The seriously good music was spun by Mr Mumu – who I can’t wait to dance to again soon at Saucebox. Thanks So very much for choosing me to document your gorgeous wedding and enjoy the sneak peek! Please leave a comment if you can find the only autumn leaf on the dress tree… or just because!
I was honored to document Amber and Kody’s wedding on August 3rd at the Portland Rose Garden and The Portland City Grill. Amber and
Kody both wore TOMS Shoes and I think this really speaks volumes about
their compassion and love, not only towards each other, but for the
world. See TOMS mission here. Their lovely sermon focused on Amber & Kody’s love of nature and animals. (I’m totally in love with their awesome dogs Wheezy and Marley:) They were also attendants at the wedding! Amber wore Lena Medoyeff and looked gorgeous with her hand crafted bouquet made from fresh flowers from the local farmers market! 🙂 Yeah! (Didn’t she do a GREAT job!?) Their wedding was incredibly fun, hip and relaxed, with Grandma and Dad doing the Wave and napkin hats with the family! I had so much fun & I’m super honored to have been a part of the adventure! Hope you enjoy every instant of the preview. 🙂 Your thoughts are welcome!
Megan and Ryan’s spectacular wedding took place on August 2nd at Skamania Lodge.
Overlooking the George, Skamania has a poetic mountain landscape on the Columbia River. Ryan and Megan and their amazing cutie-pie daughter Reece, celebrated in style with vows said in the cool summer breeze, delicious food and gorgeous flowers by Geranium Lakes. Megan’s stunning hair and makeup by the fabulous Jennifer Walker of Face Body Beauty. Erica and I had a blast capturing
all the artistic and photojournalistic moments. The wedding was beautiful, emotional, fun
and very modern with a great color palette of greens, purples and ivory! Thank you so much Megan, Ryan and Reece for choosing
Jessica Hill Photography to document your first steps together as the Kramer family!
The day-after shoot for Crystal and Patrick was nothing short of
astonishing. The weather was perfect and Crystal and Patrick were up
for adventure! We first traveled to an abandoned church with incredible
arch windows and cool graffiti, then we climbed onto the cliffs at
Crane Beach for some spectacular Caribbean waves. Although we all got a
little wet, it was worth it for these pics! I’m experimenting here with
some new post-processing and I think it really adds to this style and
the tropical colors in this set. Enjoy and please let me know your thoughts!
Crystal and Patrick’s awe-inspiring wedding took place on the stunning
and world renowned beaches of Barbados! Travis and I were blessed to be
flown to Barbados, which is located in the West Indies,
to document their incredible day. The ceremony took place on Bottoms
Bay Beach which is a small, quiet area of Barbados. The local family
pictured was hanging out near the party, and I love how happy they are
as they watched the couple say their I Do’s! The amazing dinner
reception took place at The Crane Resort,
located on the Crane Beach, which was named one of the top ten beaches
in the world by Lifestyles of The Rich and Famous. Yes- the Caribbean Sea is really that color! A destination
wedding was the perfect way for Crystal and Patrick to have an
intimate, adventurous wedding with their closest family and friends.
They traveled to Rome for their honeymoon, as the bride and groom love
to travel. Hope you had a fabulous time on your honeymoon and you both
love the sneak peek. Thanks so much Crystal and Patrick for the
unforgettable experience! Your comments are always welcome!
