Tog and Porter recently contacted me about this fun event they were hosting at Robert’s Salon of Portland. My first question was, “What’s Tog&Porter?” Ellie, the adorable and talented event designer, let me know that it’s an online personal shopping experience, unlike any other. This is how it works: you meet with your personal stylist over Skype, and they will learn what you like, dislike, colors that look good on you, your favorite features, measurements, etc and they will create a awesome box of clothes to ship to you at no charge. If you like the clothes, you keep them, if you don’t like them, or they don’t fit, you ship them back at no charge. Kind of awesome, right?! Check out all the info at the Tog&Porter website, and be sure to check out their video!
Tram and Souk are an intelligent, creative and kind-hearted couple that love to laugh and love! This candid pic really depicts their great energy together.
We loved this old truck we found parked in SE Portland. It was a perfect backdrop for some cool pics!
Souk proposed to Tram at Le Pigeon with Saint Cupcakes spelling out “Will you marry me?” See the actual cupcakes here -Super sweet and thoughtful!
Stepped into Le Pigeon for some spontaneous pics to really bring a new meaning to “Engagement Photos!”
Tram and Souk are having a July wedding that I’m so excited to be a part of. Tram and Souk are lovely and we had a great time walking around SE Portland to capture some awesome photos. We collaborated about making the images have a double meaning. Instead of the normal park engagement photos, we really told the story of their proposal in a creative and fun photo documentary way using location and props to tell the story. (Who doesn’t like cupcake props!) Special thanks to the new and always yummy, Saint Cupcake Deluxe and to Le Pigeon, an incredible French inspired restaurant serving beautiful farm fresh food. Can’t wait for your wedding and hope you love the sneak peek T&S!
The Lee On Dong Dance Team did the Lion Dance, symbolizing good fortune in the coming year. The lettuce symbolizes financial prosperity.
The Nines in downtown Portland is a couture boutique hotel with amazing architecture, poetic food and a friendly staff. Their Chinese New Year party was a rad event complete with great music, signature cocktails, incredible food and some of the best decor I’ve seen. A huge wishing tree was the central focus, along with lanterns and custom lighting, West Coast Event Productions pulled out all the stops when decorating for this cultural celebration. So happy I was there!
Thank you Libby and Kenneth for choosing me to document your rocking awesome day! Not only is this couple fun and amazing, so was the perfect
weather matched with a breathtaking view! The wedding ceremony and
reception were held at the The Viewpoint Inn
a historic boutique hotel in Corbett, Oregon. Their wedding colors were neutral golds and taupes with hints of black, which created
a classic vintage, timeless feel. The beautiful flowers were by A Floral Affair. Libby looked gorgeous in her Lea Ann Belter gown, and Stuart Weitzman heels. Kenneth was looking sharp in a classic tux and all the guys wore fun Mexican wrestling socks from Sock It To Me! They played very cool music courtesy of The Djangophiles, whose gypsy jazz tunes were the perfect compliment to the atmosphere. All the guests
marveled at the beautiful sky and the elegant surroundings while having
a very memorable evening of celebration complete with fake mustaches all around! Congratulations Libby and Kenneth and I wish you
both a lifetime of happiness! Enjoy the sneak peek:)

Taryn and Aaron are a wonderful couple
and have a great energy together! Their wedding took place on August 28th at the New Heights Church and the Vancouver Water Resource Center.
Their colors were red and black with spashes of yellow and purple and they reflected the fun
elegance of the day. The best part of the day was hanging out on the grounds of the Water Resource Center for fun pics of the couple and the wedding party. The view, the fountain, the sky.. It was all perfect and
the couple shows it! Thank you so much Taryn and Aaron for inviting me
to document your first steps together as husband and wife! Hope you
enjoy the view!
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:)
A beautiful bride! Austie created Michelle’s beautiful romantic look!
Dave opening his Peekaboo Book before the wedding!
Michelle and David said their I Do’s on August 8th among the rolling hills and sprawling grapevines of the stunning David Hill Vineyard in Forest Grove Oregon. The wedding was absolutely spectacular! The talented Austie did
Michelle’s beautiful makeup and also created her one of a kind hair
piece. The amazing flowers and decor were a perfect match to the
surroundings! Their colors were purple and green, with hints of gray
and ivory. The food was served family style, with individual salads. I
loved it 🙂 Voila catering did an outstanding job and everything tasted yummy! The dance floor was encircled in lights and everyone danced and ate yummy Saint Cupcake cupcakes for dessert. Leah and I had such a great time photographing and I’m so honored that
Michelle and Dave choose me to document their first steps together as
husband and wife! Hope you love the sneak peek and please leave your
