I was more than happy to play mid-summer tour-guide for Courtney & John during their recent visit to Portland. We are really looking forward to photographing their wedding next year!
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!
Thanks to Laurie, Dan, and the Portland Fire Bureau for giving us this opportunity to make some unique images! At Dan’s suggestion, we decided to drop by our local neighborhood fire station on our way to catch the sunset on Sauvie Island. No big deal. I’m really looking forward to this fun couple’s wedding in the foothils of Mt. St. Helens this weekend!
I met with Katie and Daniel this Summer on Sauvie Island while they were in town on a visit. It was fun to get to know them while we explored the orchards and fields of flowers, and I am really looking forward to photographing their Mt. Hood wedding this Spring!
Casey & Emily are serious fun-spirited adventurers. I don’t know too many people who would jump at the chance to stand in 40-degree water or train their dogs to sit on top of fence posts in the name of unique photography. They definitely know how to keep it interesting!
Call it a garden, call it a farm—-I call it AWESOME! Stephanie & Brandon cultivate a lot of gorgeous vegetables & flowers on about an acre of land on Sauvie Island outside Portland. This has been their labor of love for nearly the past year, so it was only natural to shoot their engagement session there, and I am so glad we did. Their joy for farming & each other is completely infectious, and their talents are evident by the abundance of beets, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, melons, beans, squash, and a few other exotic things I can’t remember the name of! If you’d like to try their crops for yourself, you can buy directly from them at the St. John’s farmer’s market. Trust me, they are delicious (we got to eat just about everything you see in this shoot)!
This weekend, we will be photographing Kendra & Nixon’s wedding in downtown Portland including a morning Vietnamese tea-ceremony, waterfront Western ceremony, and evening reception at The Nines. That may sound like a long day, but we are truly looking forward to it after spending time with them (and their pup) for their engagement session. We met under dramatic skies on Sauvie Island for an evening session to capture a more natural feel to compliment their urban-inspired wedding. Enjoy!
Sauvie Island in the springtime is one of our favorite locations for gorgeous light & lush green fields. Getting to know Erin & Jasen and seeing their relaxed fun-loving nature together, in addition to the stellar location, made for a seriously memorable evening & some great photos!
