Kellie + Anthony / Willamette Valley Engagement Photographs

I am not sure which was better: chasing the light into a cow pasture, or seeing a harvest-moon rising directly above Mt. Hood; but the best part of this session was spending a gorgeous fall afternoon with Kellie & Anthony.

Katie + Joe / Husum Highlands Wedding

This Columbia River Gorge wedding at Husum Highlands B&B included all of the best aspects of the Gorge: a beautiful country setting, orchards, sweeping mountain views, good food & drink, and plenty of sunshine! When I first met Katie & Joe, we instantly bonded over our mutual love for this landscape and all that comes with it. (Including all of the awesome outdoor recreation!) It was an honor to document their wedding in this place that is so meaningful to both of us. We kept joking with each that we may end up neighbors in the Gorge one day, and I don’t think that’s too far of a stretch of the imagination. Let’s just say we wouldn’t be disappointed if that happened!

Katie + Joe / Downtown Seattle Engagement

Seattle sure knows how to Summer! Even on a cloudy day. Just look at all that traffic on Lake union (there were even a few seaplanes cruising overhead at one point). We had a wonderful afternoon earlier this year visiting some Seattle favorites with Katie & Joe for their engagement session. This downtown Seattle session was a great contrast to their rustic wedding high in the hills of the Columbia River Gorge. downtown-seattle-pioneer-square-engagement-002 Read more →

Jestina + Chris / Merrywood Farm Wedding

After Chris & Jestina’s wedding, we will gladly add “working Christmas tree farm” to our list of unique Oregon wedding venues. Merrywood Farm is a true gem, and somewhat “undiscovered” when it comes to the Portland wedding world. We would absolutely love to shoot here again. The owners were amazingly gracious, and not only do you have access to the entire forested farm, but they have multiple barns filled with an array of antiques and collectibles. It’s perfect for the couple looking for a laid-back venue with tons of vintage-rustic charm. Which is exactly what Chris & Jestina were looking for… that, and excellent food. Their dinner was catered by mobile bbq masters, Rip City Grill, and afterwards guests were treated to both Gelato, and a Liege Waffle station! Jestina & Chris, thank you for feeding me so well and for being such wonderful people.

Venue:  Merrywood Farm
Floral Design:  Amanda Whitman
Make-Up Artist:  Kirstie Wight

Laurie + Dan / Anderson Lodge Wedding

If you can’t tell by her sparkling smile and quick laughter, Laurie is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet; and Dan is one of the most genuine & sincere people you will ever meet. Together, they make a great combo, and this was approved whole-heartedly by their family and friends on their wedding day. I had a wonderful time getting to know these two and feel fortunate to now call them friends.

Kathy + Yan-Yu / Cathedral Park Wedding

Kathy and Yan-Yu contacted us to photograph their simple & sweet US wedding ceremony, which was attended by a handful of their closest friends. Although they are both from Taiwan, this couple chose to have their legal ceremony in the city  where they met and now call home.They also plan to have a major celebration & Taiwanese ceremony with most of their family & friends. We had a great time making these images in one of Portland’s most iconic parks.

Kristin + Nick / The Photobooth

We kicked off a packed weekend of weddings with Kristin & Nick at Youngberg Hill Inn & Vineyards on Friday. The very first time we met they mentioned that their wedding guests would be very hip to the photobooth, and they did not disappoint! Here are few highlights. You can see all of the photobooth images on our Facebook Page. Enjoy!

Kristin + Nick / Sauvie Island Engagement

This casual session on a recent summer evening was a blast! You can’t really go wrong with windswept hair on the beach in our book. Kristin & Nick were so relaxed and joyful together, we can’t wait to photograph their wedding at Youngberg Hill this weekend!

Lynn + Zach / Kelley Farm Wedding

The modern & rustic barn at the Kelley Farm was an amazing backdrop for Lynn & Zach’s June wedding. A big thanks to Boone Rodriguez for bringing his skills up to Washington & shooting this with me. We had a blast documenting this celebration & getting to know Lynn & Zach, and their friends & family!

Casie + Ian / University of Washington Engagement

Boating under a freeway overpass to a secluded lagoon on a perfect Seattle evening (while rescuing stray-ducklings), was a perfect way to get to know Casie & Ian! After rowing around with them for a few hours, we are really looking forward to their wedding in the mountains east of Seattle this Fall.
