When you meet a couple that have been together for over a decade, have travelled the world, laughed and danced together, you know it’s going to be a truly incredible wedding adventure. Liz & Richard and I met up at the cherry blossoms at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park and had a blast in the blooms. Although it was scheduled to rain, we lucked out and had a great time. We then headed to the Japanese Gardens and made magic. Richard and Liz have a deep love of Japan and have travelled there. It was fun learning about the different garden features, ikebana and sensory experiences. It was a truly an amazing few hours spent with these two and I’m beyond excited for their wedding in wine country this weekend!
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!
I am so excited to be partnering with USB Memory Direct to provide wooden hard-drives to all of my couples with their digital wedding photographs. These drives are USB 3.0 meaning that they are fast and reliable…two of my favorite things! Although, I strongly believe in the beauty of printed photos for custom wall art or albums; it is so wonderful to have all of your wedding photos in one place on the drive. Thank you USB Memory Direct for these beautiful drives.
Mia and Chris and I met at a wine-tasting event WAY back in the day right around the time when Chris proposed! We photographed their apple-orchard inspired engagement session back in 2012 and had a blast together. Since then so much has happened, marriage, houses, careers (Mia is the manager at the Pearl Anthropologie!) and Mia and Chris welcomed their sweet baby girl Ceci into this wonderful world! Was so honored to photograph their sweet family along with their pups at their stylish home in NE Portland. I especially loved the Jonathan Adler couch! (Yes please) and Ceci’s hip and bright nursery. Their older pup passed very soon after these photos were taken so I’m very humbled to have photographed that sweet pup. So much love for this kind, stylish and creative family!
Elegant, Timeless, Classic and Fun!!! Loved getting to know this couple and the fun adventure we had during their fun engagement session. The lovely Elizabeth with Bridal Bliss coordinated and Blum Florals created the AMAZING florals with gorgeous and unique details (loved the blueberry gold dish centerpieces and the hand-painted masterpiece cake by Dreamcakes) and a fun party. The sweet ceremony took place at the historic First Presbyterian Church in downtown Portland where you could actually feel the love within the rafters! The classic and beyond stunning Governor Ballroom at the Sentinel Hotel was breathtaking. As Michael twirled Ande into the night, the incredible band Precious Byrd played on and kept the party going. As you can tell this was an evening to remember and we made some magic art. Loved this day and thank you Ande and Michael for trusting me with documenting your true love story! What a night!
