He is one of the coolest Father of the Groom / Best Men I have ever met. He looks like a total badass here, however he is quite hilarious and entertaining! Thanks for the killer look, Randy!
Everyone had a blast at Rachel and Brenden’s wedding in the PartyBooth! The bride and groom thoughtfully provided some crazy wigs that were equally horrendous and outrageously awesome. We usually post PartyBooth photos in black-and-white only, but who can resist electric blue? Enjoy!
We have had a wonderful time getting to know Michaeline and Marty over the past few months. After an awesome engagement session on Mt. Hood, we knew their wedding would be special. Near tragedy struck a few weeks before their wedding when Martin informed us that Mikki had accidentally dropped a kitchen knife on her foot, cutting one of her major tendons. At the time, he informed us that we better get our camera’s ready for a beautiful bride with a big black boot! (aka a walking cast). A few days before the wedding, Mikki happily shared with us that she didn’t have to wear the boot for our photo time before and during the ceremony. However, she did rock the boot at the reception with style and grace–a testament to her wonderful attitude and personality! Click the photo or link below to view more images from their wedding. Enjoy!
This post takes us back to the spring snows on Mt. Hood for Matt & Logan’s wedding at Timberline’s Silcox Hut. There were so many amazing details and stunning photos of the couple spread out over multiple blog posts that we did not get around to properly wrapping it all up. The photos below give you a glimpse of the glorious weather Matt and Logan awoke to on the morning after their wedding.
After a non-traditional send off involving snowballs in lieu of rice or bubbles (this was a complete surprise to the bride and groom, of course!), Matt & Logan took off down the mountain for their first ski–the first of many bluebird days together!
On July 25th, Bethany & Olivia joined their lives together in front of small group of family and friends at a private residence in Portland. We were so honored to be a part of this intimate and emotional ceremony! It was truly touching to see how much support these two beautiful brides have from their loved ones.
A worthy celebration followed at the Secret Society Ballroom that evening where even more friends and family gathered together to celebrate this couple’s love and new life together!
In the midst of Portland’s current 100+ degree heatwave, it is hard to remember that we received nearly a full day of heavy rain a little over 2 weeks ago! During that weekend, we were scheduled to shoot Jessica & Bryce’s wedding on Cannon Beach. Due to the weather, they made a quick decision to move their ceremony indoors to their reception location: The Loft at the Red Building in Astoria, Oregon. The Red Building is a beautifully renovated space situated on a pier at the mouth of the Columbia River, just under the expansive and awe-inspiring Megler Bridge.
It may not have been a sunny beach, but the stormy weather brought with it dramatic skies and a beautiful, soft light that made for wonderful portraits! Jessica & Bryce embraced the location and were a joy to work with. As artists, we strive to bring all of the unique elements of your wedding into your photos to capture the true essence of your day, whether they be tiny details, a quick glance across a room, or the weather. Congratulations, Jessica & Bryce, we hope you enjoy your photos!
Kristin & David’s wedding was punctuated by colorful details, a few funky surprises (check out those sunglasses!), and lots of laughter. A big heartfelt thank-you to you both for being so wonderful to photograph!

There were so many amazing details from Matt & Logan’s Mt. Hood wedding that they deserve a blog post of their own! What really stood out to us about the details and planning of their wedding was the uber-creativity and DIY aesthetic that defined every last detail, as well as an environmentally sensitive approach. Not to mention the thoughtfulness and soul that imbued everything. For example, the image below is of a newspaper flower. As beautifully simplistic as it is, the real beauty of this detail comes from it’s backstory….
As Logan explains it, the newspaper-flower idea was born from their Sunday morning routine of reading the New York Times together–a simple pleasure they love.
There were literally hundreds of these flowers worked into the decorations for the wedding, and each one was hand cut and put together by the bride and groom, with a little help from family and friends. This is particularly amazing given the fact that they both finished medical school the week before the wedding! [I will be signing up for productivity and time-management classes as soon as they start offering them!]

One of the best aspects of calling the Northwest home as a photograper is the diversity of amazing locations. Beautiful beaches, majestic mountains, cool towns, pastoral valleys . . . I’m sure you’ve heard it all before (but it’s true)! One of our favorite aspects of being wedding photographers is the rare opportunity to photograph weddings of friends. I say rare, because often we don’t even get to attend friends’ weddings due to prior bookings. You may think this could be perceived as unenjoyable work to us, but it is quite the contrary. We love the opportunity to capture the spirit and moments of a wedding for all of our clients, but it is especially rewarding when you have a special connection and history with the bride and groom. All this aligned in April when we were able to photograph the wedding of our dear friends Matt & Logan on Mt. Hood!
Being avid moutain folk (Matt hails from Central Oregon, and Logan from Colorado), they chose Silcox Hut at Timberline as the epicenter for their wedding celebration. Their family and friends converged there for an intimate celebration under the stars and the peak of Mt. Hood. It encompassed everything the Oregon Cascades have to offer in spring: a little snow, a little sun, and nice conditions for a ski back to the lodge the next morning! Logan also put a ton of time into many thoughtful details that warrant their own blog post, so stay tuned for more. For the time being, we hope you enjoy some images of this amazing couple!
