Peacock Themed Wedding at The Water Oasis | Photographers of Portland

Sarah and Eric’s ceremony was so sweet – the groom had already been crying half the morning (with excitement – don’t worry!) but as soon as he saw his bride start down the aisle it was all over. Tissues were out, emotions were high, I think Sarah might have even shed her first tear of the day. Of course, that’s when the bubble machine kicked on. Plenty of weddings have bubbles at the end, but how many have you seen with actual machines creating bubbles throughout the ceremony? Personally, I loved it. Its the little quirky details that make Portland weddings so perfect and personal. Check out Sarah and Eric’s whole peacock themed wedding here.

Georgetown Engagement Session | Photographers of Portland

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to photograph Marina & Anthony’s engagement session at their new home, Georgetown. I had never been and was so blown away by all the amazing brick, quaint streets, and gorgeous weather. It was a dream photographing them and the start of their new life together on the East Coast. Next year they’ll be making the trip back to Portland to say their “I-Do’s” though!

Banks, OR Sun Soaked Senior Portraits | Photographers of Portland For these senior portraits, we basked in the late summer sun and then we broke out the lights at dusk for some sunset images. I think Emily’s grandparents’ scenic wheat field in Banks, OR was the perfect setting for these portraits. Our props included a horse, a letter jacket, and a soccer ball — pretty much all the essentials! Click over to the Jenna Saint Martin Photo blog to enjoy more photos from this session.

Shabby Chic Washington Wedding | Photographers of Portland

Amber and Trevor were married at Willow Lake Estate this past year in the most classy and chic of ways. I absolutely loved that they chose to decorate with mercury glass instead of vases/mason jars. Plus, Amber’s mom made and decorated pink and gold cake pops for everyone! Don’t miss any of the other amazing details from this Shabby Chic Washington Wedding by Brittany Lauren Photography.

Ridiculously Fun and Sexy Engagement Session in Newberg Oregon | Photographers of Portland

Welcome to what was quite possibly the most fun I’ve ever had on an engagement session. Getting to photograph couples like Amanda and John is what makes my job the best. Sorry florists and caterers, you just don’t get to hang out with your awesome couples as much as I do. In fact, somehow, this “90 minute” engagement session turned into nearly 4 hours! Check out the entire engagement session here!

Awesome Succulent Bouquets: Langdon Farms Wedding | Photographers of Portland

Wedding days are full of fluff, tulle, and pretty smelling flowers, but what do you do when you’re allergic to flowers and still want to carry a bouquet down the aisle and decorate your event space? Well, the bride at this Langdon Farms Wedding had an entire bouquet of succulents. Not only did it solve the issue of a possible sneezing attack mid “I do’s,” but it just all around looked awesome! Definitely something to consider if you also have an allergy, sensitivity, or just want to do something cool and different.

Portland Headshots with Personality | Photographers of Portland

Liz didn’t want the traditional style headshots for her new business venture (the exact nature of the venture is a secret for now!). We sat down and discussed the vision she had for her business and I designed a shoot that would produce images to come in line with that vision. She wanted something that reflected both her relational personality as well as her urban, modern style. You can check out more from Catalina Jean Photography by clicking here.
