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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
There are so many phenomenal locations for portrait session in and around Portland, we sometimes forget that keeping it local works just as well. Plus, it’s a total bonus when our clients are in the neighborhood! For this session, we started at Rachel & Kori’s North Portland home. After photos with their pets at the house, we walked to one of their favorite neighborhood spots, The Box Social (which also happens to be one our favorite places to grab a cocktail), taking advantage of the great light & buildings along the way. An evening well-spent, indeed!
For their engagement session, Christina & Matthew wanted a classic “night-at-the-theater” downtown feel. We started with drinks at the Heathman Hotel, and then hit the streets outside the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Some things never go out of style!
