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!
I met Caroline and Scott, a kind & quiet couple on a gorgeous afternoon in Portland for their engagement at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. Located in SE Portland, the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is a local gem for photographers with its variety of natural topography. It could not have been a more beautiful day with waterfalls and bursts of blooms in every color! I loved Caroline’s blue vintage-inspired dress that popped against the floral backdrop. I am so excited for their wedding this weekend at Cooper’s Hall! Thank you Caroline and Scott for entrusting me the honor to photograph you guys!
We met up with Natalie and Josh at the International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park for their engagement photoshoot and it was a beautiful evening making the day even more special. Natalie and Josh are a sweet, kind and fun couple. They are getting married in Sunriver, Oregon later this month and are very excited for their wedding! We love their engagement photos and wish them the very best on their upcoming big day!
Christina and Ed and I met up recently to document their engagement in Laurelhurst park and around SE Belmont. You can’t skip Stumptown for some great coffee and cute photos! It’s been so fun to get to know this incredibly kind and smart couple. They are so perfect for each other! They just got married this past weekend and I can’t wait to share the love from their stunning J Wrigley Winery wedding!
Hanging out on the streets of Mississippi Ave in N. Portland with a deep blue sky and vintage cruiser bikes is my idea of a good time! Erica and Cort and I, along with my awesome new intern Allison, took to the streets and found some great locations along the way. Erica’s cute yellow shoes and old school red Schwinn made for tons of great colors in these pics. E&C are so fun and energetic, it’s hard not to smile when you’re around them! I’m so looking forward to their wedding at Skamania Lodge in September!
Liz and David are a super cute couple that smile a lot!
Love this pic! The colors, the textures, the light…
The playful balloons and colors make me happy.
The vintage outfits at Union Station make this timeless and classic!
David and Liz are tying the knot in July at the incredible Zenith Vineyards and I’m super excited to be a part of their wedding. We met up recently for this fun shoot in and around Union Station. I love their energy together and loved the outfits they chose. (In love with Liz’s pencil skirt!) They are both engineers and love architecture, so we incorporated a lot into the pics. Hope you love the sneak peek L&D and I can’t wait for your wedding!
Jenni teaches at Barre 3 in the Pearl and we were able to photograph inside during the rain for some awesome pics! How bad ass is this pic!?
Love all these pics that truly embody J&K’s personalities! check out Barr 3 for an awesome workout that combines ballet barre, yoga and pilates!
My personal fave. Love the elements of nature coming together here!
What a hot couple!
Another fave. Check her eyelashes! Wow!
Their Pearl apt. is ultra hip and has great light and color!
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!
Kim and Peter had an incredible vintage-inspired wedding with their closest family and friends at their NE home.
K&P were inspired by vintage photos of their family and we tried to replicate the poses and coloring of these cherished photos that adorn their walls.
Kim looked incredible in her hand dyed dress, mary janes and feathers in her hair.
The ceremony was short and sweet and took place in their dining room with about 6 attendees. Very intimate and cozy.
The invites and cake topper all came from their illustrator friend who used the couple and Edward Gorey as inspiration.
The delicious food and bar was catered by the lovely folks at Holocene.
Duchess created and tailored the suit for Peter and they are awesome.
This wedding was so beyond average. It was laid back, artistic, intimate and tons of fun.
Kim and Peter created an incredible afternoon and evening of festivities surrounding their marriage on May 8th. With a small ceremony in their dining room, a cocktail and appetizer reception in their turn of the century home, this wedding was very one of a kind. Inspired by vintage images of their families ancestry and the illustrations of Edward Gorey, they created a unique atmosphere for their family and friends. I loved everything about this wedding and hope K&P love their sneak peek. Thank you so much for sharing your day and your story.
How fun and awesome is this pic…partly because of the No Parking detail, mostly because of Kaley’s awesome hair!
We found this great truck in a nearby parking lot, but much to our surprise their was a killer dog in the front seat. (well, maybe not killer, but really scary!)
I’m in love with the motion involved with this series.
This building is so very 1940’s Dick Tracy…so rad
Two great shots from my awesome new second photographer Liam. Great pics of a hot couple!
Kaley and Brent along with Liam and I met up recently for a creative and fun engagement shoot in the Pearl District and China Town in NW Portland. Kaley and Brent are a really fun and intelligent couple who are getting married in August at the lovely Waverly Country Club. I’m really looking forward to documenting their first steps together as husband and wife. Hope you love the sneak peek K&B!
