Nicole + Ian / Downtown Portland Wedding

Hailing from our sister city on the eastern seaboard, Nicole & Ian planned an intimate destination wedding in downtown Portland. These Brooklynites said their vows on the roof-top deck at Ecotrust in front of a small gathering of family & friends. Before their ceremony, we took a stroll through downtown visiting a few well-known landmarks & discovering others with a little ice-cream break in between. Their casual style and relaxed nature made for an ultra-fun shoot and a fantastic wedding!

Kelsey + Tyler / Oregon Farm Wedding

With an orchard ceremony, a beautifully slow sunset, and dancing into the twilight & under the stars, Kelsey & Tyler’s wedding was the epitome of a mid-summer Oregon celebration. The wedding took place at a private family home just outside Portland, with a perfect balance of country close to the city. A big thanks to Roger Porter for shooting with me.

Erin + Brian / Crag Rats Hut Wedding

The Crag Rats Hut is a wonderful place for an intimate wedding in Hood River, if you don’t mind being surrounded by orchards with an amazing view.  On one of the hottest days of the year, Erin & Brian celebrated with their friends and family and danced the night away as the sun slowly sank behind Mt. Hood.

Suzette + Jonathan / San Francisco Engagement

I recently had the opportunity to spend a morning and afternoon with this sweet couple to shoot some engagement photos at their home in San Francisco & around the city. We started off in their SOMA apartment while Jonathan prepared breakfast-in-bed for Suzette & demonstrated his pancake-flipping prowess. (If you take a look at the magazine photos, you may understand why Jonathan is the cook of the family.) We then hit the streets & headed to the beach, with a stop off at the rugged Sutro Baths in between. It was quite a day, and an awesome way to get to know these two. Suzette & Jonathan, thank you for inviting me into your home and sharing your city!

Katie + Matt / Gorge Crest Wedding

The recent return of rain here in western Oregon seems an appropriate time to share this wonderful Columbia Gorge wedding at Gorge Crest Vineyards. Historically, the weather towards the end of September can go either way. If the sun is out, it is one of the most beautiful times of the year here, but the chance that it will be stormy is just as strong as the chance for sunny skies–and sometimes we have both in the same day.

Although there wasn’t much rain on Matt & Katie’s wedding day, the majority of it fell during the ceremony, starting with impeccable timing right as the bride walked down the isle. In true Oregonian spirit, they embraced the crazy weather and the harder it rained, the larger their smiles became. Everyone reveled in their joy & the visceral experience of sitting in the rain watching storm clouds roll over the Columbia river and the mountain range beyond.

That pretty much set the tone for the rest of the day, and it was an awesome celebration! I particularly loved the dramatic skies we were able to capture for our “sunset” photos. A big thanks to Roger Porter for photographing with me & putting up with a bit of drizzle.
