Kristin & Jay
A Cathedral Park Engagement

This stunning Cathedral Park engagement session with Kristin and Jay was so much fun and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple or a more gorgeous evening. Kristin and Jay first set eyes on each other at a Seahawks game in Seattle. As fate would have it, they were brought together again in Portland several years later and things just clicked! We were joined by their dog, Russell (as in Russell Wilson! Go Seahawks!) and we spent a lovely evening wandering the beach beneath St. John’s Bridge, capturing stunning sunset photos along the river, and laughing over old memories the two shared. They’re getting married next Spring at Abbey Road Farm in Carlton, Oregon and I can’t wait!

Patience & Egan
A Mt. Tabor Park and Waterfront Engagement

As soon as I met Patience and Egan we immediately clicked and ended up talking for hours about their world travels (Japan & Greece!) and where to find the best sushi in Portland! (Ichidai and Bamboo!) Egan fell for Patience when they met one another while at summer camp! These two are such a kind, beautiful, and empathetic couple who I had the pleasure of photographing their engagements at Mt. Tabor, a popular urban park in SE Portland known for its views and water reservoirs. With the Portland city skyline as our backdrop, we made our way to a few beautiful locations around this gorgeous urban park along with their cutie pie pup Corgie, Kevin. We headed to the waterfront for some iconic sunset photos with Portland in the distance. I’m honored to have captured the love between Patience and Egan as the sun peaked through the trees amidst mesmerizing sunset reflections on the river. I loved connecting with these two and Patience’s makeup and hair by Olivia Hawthorne. They are getting married this June at the Sentinel in downtown Portland and I just know that their day will be filled with so much love. Thank you Patience and Egan for allowing me to be a part of your story.

Brianne and John
A Pearl District Engagement

Brianne and John are a fun and gorgeous couple full of love, energy and good times! We met up recently for a perfectly Pearl district engagement shoot around a few local landmarks in the Pearl. The bridges, the waterfront, Tanner Springs Park and Via Delizia in the Pearl for some yummy hot coco’s. Love it and can’t wait to photograph their July wine country wedding!

Jill and Matt are the sweetest couple and super cute. They are in l-o-v-e and getting married in downtown Portland in November. (I love Fall weddings!) Hannah and I met up with them at the studio in Union Station and walked all over the Pearl and the Waterfront for some special pics. Hope you both love the sneak peek J&M and I can’t wait to be a part of your day!

Jenni and Kyley and I all met up recently for a quintessential Portland photo shoot, with a little bit of sun and a lot of rain. Luckily, J&K live in the Pearl and we had a few awesome opportunities to duck for cover and create personal pics of the couple in their hip apartment, and in the courtyard of the impressive building. They are also in the process of selling their space, so these pics will be really meaningful after they’ve moved and can reminisce about their first space together as a couple. I’m really looking forward to their Aug. 28th wedding and hope they love the sneak peek!

Britt and David are tying the knot in September of this year at the incredible Lac de Fleur gardens.

They brought their favorite things that meant the most to them, including David’s bow and arrow, Britt’s medical bag, and of course, their awesome dog, Tycho! Britt and David are a creative and intelligent couple and I can’t wait for their wedding! Hope you love the sneak peek B&D!
