Fine Art Canvas

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be offering more and more fine art pieces for my awesome clients! Introducing the fine-art canvas from Jessica Hill Photography. These canvas wraps are impeccable, have great craftsmanship, come ready to hang and they are made in the USA. The tight corners and archival paper back is also really nice. Request a proofing session to order an image or two from your shoot by emailing Lindsay, at orders@jessicahillphotography.com. The fun family portrait that you see was taken for the rad Fararra family session on Sauvie Island.

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.

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.

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!

As many of you may already know, I’m a HUGE Kate Davis fan! While Travis and I were celebrating my birthday at Wilf’s Restaurant almost two years ago we just happen to witness her poise, stand-up bass skill and incredible voice that night! We were in love 🙂 She was only 16 then and a Jr. in college and now she’s in NYC and a freshman at the Manhatann School of Music!  yeah! The afternoon of her last Wilf’s performance we met up for the shoot at Union Station for that subtle vintage-y feel. We were going for a hip holiday look, with nothing too campy or Christmas-y. I love the way the pics look and Kate’s cool green dress adds the perfect holiday touch. I can’t wait to hear the new album due around Thanksgiving! Please check out her awesome new website and listen to her music 🙂 Her rendition of My Funny Valentine always gives me goosebumps! She’s a talent that will take over the world soon. All the best to you and your successes Kate!
