I just went to the Woodburn Tulip for the first time and it was gorgeous! I got to do a bridal photoshoot for Billy and Karen for their pre-wedding photos. They’re having a big reception in Hong Kong this fall so we took photos to display on an easel and in albums at their wedding reception. It was so much fun just wandering around the acres of tulips. I wish tulips were around longer than just a month or so each year, they’re so beautiful! Congratulations Karen and Billy, I’m so excited to get your double volume albums printed! See the rest here at Erica Ann Photography!

Summer Sunset Wedding Photography
I love summer sunsets in Portland! A better yet are sunset weddings!
I was on the Crystal Dolphin for a wedding last night and there was a beautiful sunset and it has me so excited for the summer.
I also couldn’t help but think of this amazing sunset at Lindsay and Steven’s wedding. Their wedding took place at The Troutdale House by the Sandy River. We were actually all done with taking portraits for the day and were well into the reception when I ran out to my car. When I turned around I saw this amazing sunset. I ran inside and told the couple to just give me 10 minutes and they wouldn’t regret it.
And they didn’t!
This image became a large canvas for the wall in their home and the sister image to this is the front of their wedding album.
While this summer is almost booked we do have a couple dates left, contact Photography by Cambrae about booking your own sunset wedding portrait session via our website www.photographybycambrae.com or call us at (503) 706-0130.

Their amazing reception, complete with rap duet toasts and a Macklemore style Dance Off? Maybe you should just choose for yourself – there are so many great moments!
Yes! Aaron and Ann’s wedding was so much fun and so completely gorgeous. I’ve known Aaron since college and I cannot think of a better match than beautiful Ann! These two are both in the navy – I loved all of the traditions and navy wedding decor. Check out more photos of this gorgeous wedding at Erica Ann Photography!
Have you wondered why photo booths have become all of the rage at weddings lately? Here are a few of the many reason’s why it’s a good move to add one to your party entertainment for your wedding day…
- RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS OF FUN – Your guests will surely be entertained at your wedding with a photo booth! At every event we do and the thousands of photographs taken you always see smiles, creativity and often some shenanigans ensue in every capture. It doesn’t take long for the line to form and everyone is wanting to get into the next photo. Not every one will cut a rug on the dance floor, but most everyone will pose for a silly photo booth pic with their BFF or their favorite Aunt at the wedding.
- GOOD CLEAN FUN FOR ALL AGES – From infants to grandparents, at all of our events, everyone has a great time! We also love being able to send home all of the kids that use our booth their very own print for their wall at home and one for their parents for the fridge.
- A GREAT TIME FILLER – Need to keep people occupied while you and the bridal party are taking photos with the professional photographer? Having a photo booth ready to keep everyone busy means they won’t be standing around wondering how much longer until the party gets started…it’s already begun and you haven’t even been announced by the DJ yet!
- KEEPSAKES FOR YOUR GUESTS…

Normally, I can caption a photo. Over here at Emily Hall Photography, I pride myself in being the funniest person in the (admittedly lightly staffed) office. It’s not always the perfect caption, but usually, I can come up with something at least mildly witty. Today, not so much. So, I…crowd-sourced it, and here’s what I got:
-Oh… the LEFT hand!
-Pure joy, the very best way to start a marriage! Pure joy the best way to maintain a healthy marriage.
-Love and laughter as they start their happily ever after…
-Knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with you makes me so happy!
-Just one of the many smiles we get to share over the course of our marriage, priceless!
–Let’s laugh our way through life together
How would YOU caption this photo? Keep in mind that these two people are AWESOME. Bring your best stuff!
As a Portland wedding photographer I’ve seen it all at weddings! Couples who are calm and almost zen-like, stressed, and everything in between. I’ve curated a list of tips and things to keep in mind to help you keep it all in check and be sure you have the best wedding day possible without letting petty things bother you.
Everyone dreams of a wedding day with no hiccups, setbacks or stress. Which is why the reality can sometimes be a let down. But don’t despair! With my years of experience shooting weddings, I know my way around stressful days. So repeat after me: Calm, serene, peaceful…calm, serene, peaceful…
Sometimes at the Pacific Northwest weddings it rains (shocker!!) when we really want the sun. Sometimes the florist brings the wrong color flowers. And sometimes your flower girl just doesn’t want to be sweet and instead wants to test out her lungs in the form of an epic tantrum.
So, what are you supposed to do?
Here are my best tips:
- Keep it in Perspective! The flower girl screaming is going to make a hilarious story when she’s 17 and trying to be the coolest kid ever. And, really, orange flowers instead of yellow won’t ruin your entire day. You’re there to get married, to have a great party, and commit to your best friend. Remember to take a deep breath and focus on the actual priorities of the day.
- Have A Plan! Make sure you know who’s supposed to where and when. Oh! And make sure they know where they’re supposed to be and when. It’s easier to redirect one person than it is to try and herd a whole group! Better yet, make sure your photographer has worked a solid plan out for you, knows the schedule, and is able to help you stick to it.
- Keep Calm and…Delegate! Don’t try to do it all. You and your love are beautifully dressed and ready to have that calm, serene, and peaceful day we just discussed. In the words of Taylor Swift: shake it off…and delegate! Your wedding party is there to support you in your quest to have the best wedding day ever, use that support and love.

So… this was a WOW wedding. Seriously, that is one over the top insane botanical wedding arch! Roger and his team at Haute Flowers did an amazing job with everything. Botanical was definitely the theme of this Black Butte Ranch wedding and I loved it!

Well it seems as though the snow has come and gone for this year, just visiting us in Portland for Christmas eve. I have never been one to long for snow but somehow compared to last year this January doesn’t feel as much like winter. It got me thinking about this beautiful winter wedding styled session I did on Mt. Hood. The lovely Shelley brought out her beautiful wedding dress so we could play in the snow, and I am so happy with the results.
Cannon Beach Photographer – Jaime Kae Hazen’s Rock the Dress Photo Shoot
When Chandra approached me about doing a beach photo shoot with a beautiful flowing dress to celebrate her birthday I was totally stoked! It’s refreshing to see someone excited to celebrate something all their own. All to often women hide behind the camera, avoid spending money on themselves, and don’t enjoy looking at their photos without picking everything apart. Don’t think for a moment that being confident and excited to be who you are is the same as being vain. It’s so not the same!
When Chandra came in to view her images yesterday she was so nervous and afraid of how she’d look in her images, and wouldn’t you know it she was absolutely thrilled with how they came out!
This is the perfect kind of session you can incorporate for high school senior girls, bridal sessions after the wedding, glamour makeovers or just for you anytime you like!
Check out this beautiful wall arrangement from Chandra’s session that can be ordered in canvas, metal or wood prints. Worried about what people might think about you putting art of yourself on the wall? Why??? That says more about them and their insecurities than it does about you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Choose to be happy and confident, that’s what matters!
More from Chandra’s session can be seen in this YouTube video:

I was lucky enough to be among the group of friends that was present for Jesse’s proposal to Sion. Like many proposals, after a day of failed attempts around the celebration of her birthday, a group of us found ourselves together in their SE Portland home. I remember Jesse showing me the ring in his pocket and saying it was going to happen now. I myself had no idea he was planning things for that day and was so excited to see this happen. Of course she said YES and we spent the rest of the night celebrating.
Veronica and Dale were married at the picturesque Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center. The building stands so strong and made of stone, yet surrounded by beautiful delicate flowers. But the true gem of this venue is in the architecture of the interior ceiling. It made a grand backdrop for the coming together of these two families.

A small intimate wedding with just close friends and family aboard the Portland Spirit. We all enjoyed being carried along the Willamette River and seeing the sites while watching these two say “I do”. We were all excited to help them celebrate the beginning of this new chapter in their lives.
After the wedding we all had a little fun at the front of the boat with the captain. He let Bree-Lyn and Forest take over stirring the boat. Bree-Lyn couldn’t help but giggle as we talked Forest into a photo in the captains hat.
Without a game-plan for documenting the wedding day details, it’s oftentimes easy to get so caught up in the happenings of wedding day that they can easily get lost in the shuffle. As a photographer who prides herself in capturing the raw emotions and being a storyteller of the wedding day, I could easily tell myself that there are more important things than documenting tables, guestbooks, jewelry, etc. But if I did that, I’d be missing an important part of the story. Most of the couples I work with put a lot of time, emotion, and energy into their wedding day details. Many items are handmade and are the result of countless hours of brainstorming and decision-making as the vision for their wedding day develops. Most of these items are sold or discarded after wedding day, and what remains are the memories. I love it when my mom fondly recalls the details of her wedding and the efforts of my grandmother and my nana went to to make the day extra special for my mom. I am forever grateful to my wedding photographer for taking the time to document the many handmade details that I spent way too long making, and I look forward to sharing those memories with my own daughters one day – WITH pictures!
With their seven children combined, the officiant and myself as a witness Regan and Kelly were married on the Oregon Coast not too far from Astoria, Oregon. The weather this year has been much cooler and wetter than usual and made it a challenge to get many photos of them on the beach before their ceremony. By ceremony time the sun was out and we were able to get some gorgeous photos of them on the beach together after they said their “I do’s”.
