When I asked a dear friend of mine why she decided to wait until birth to find out the sex of her baby, she said to me “…because there are few true surprises in life” and that has always stuck with me. So when Andrea and Stefan told me they were waiting to find out the sex of their first child, I was so excited for them knowing the true surprise they had to come.

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.
I first met Daine oh so many years ago not long after graduating high school. He worked with a dear friend of mine and was often one of the singles at group parties…..until one day he walked in the door with Linda. Not only was she beautiful, but smart, and you could see by the way Daine looked at her, this girl was something special.
Over the years our little group has drifted a bit as people got married, changed jobs and had kids. So when an email popped into my inbox from the two of them asking about wedding photography I could not have been more exited! Not only for the two of them, but also for how honored I felt that they thought of me to be a part of this special day in their lives. And a truly special day it was.
We all met ahead of the ceremony at Laurelhurst Park for the first look and some bridal party portraits. When I saw Daine’s reaction to seeing her for the first time, it melted my heart.
I was so proud of Courtney and Nick for doing this beautiful sexy beach session. They are married, first time parents, and still a young couple in love.
Sessions like these are a great way for couples to connect, and have something that is just about them and just for them. This adventurous couple, climbed giant piles of beach wood, braved the ocean water, and bared a little of their hearts to create this images.

James and Kristine created such fun art deco details for their wedding at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. All the details from the table settings, to music, to cake really allowed their guests to get into the 20’s feel. The roadhouse also lent itself perfectly with McMenamins trade mark pastel decor and funky paintings. A good time was had by all at this intimate affair.

The beautiful Longview Community Church stood proud and picturesque at this wedding on a hot day this summer.
I couldn’t help but smile all day watching these two prepare to get married. They were so obviously in love. They would steal glances and kisses when they thought no one was watching.
It is these types of moments I will be thinking about over the winter as I excitedly await all the fun weddings to come in 2017.

Many couples work so hard on all of the details for their wedding. I love taking the time to capture these during the wedding day. It’s not only for the couples, but they also help bring to life the story of the day for people who couldn’t be there. Details for brides might include jewelry, garter, and shoes, while grooms may have cuff links. crazy socks, or a special watch. Not to mention all the details put into decorations, gifts, and more.

It sure doesn’t feel like a year ago that I was photographing this little guy at just a few days old. It is amazing how the times files…..and they will only be this age once.
It has been an honor to work with Levi during his first year, and I look forward to more fun with the rest of his beautiful family soon!

This rental home was such a lucky find, spacious large home, winding wood desks, and beautiful outdoor space looking into the woods. It was the perfect setting for Stacie and Choncy to hold their intimate wedding.

After a romantic early Valentine’s day dinner at Departure, Travis walked his bride to be, Riann, along the waterfront. Little did she know the photographer they just passed “taking pictures of the bridge” was about to become a part of her proposal story. As soon as I saw Travis go down on one knee I turned my camera towards them and was able to capture some priceless expressions. I moment none of us will soon forget.
After the ring was on her finger, and she knew I was in on it, we spent some more time walking around together taking pictures by the Hawthorne Bridge and the World Trade Center Portland.

When guests arrived for this 10th anniversary party at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse they were greeted at the door by a surprise wedding certificate. Nick & Kelley, the couple who said they would never get married, surprised family and friends by getting hitched in a small private ceremony just moments before the party started. Guests could not be happier for this long time, life lovin’ couple. And to top if off this location was where they met 10 years ago, both working in the kitchen for McMenamins.
As their love was written in the stars, their party had a fun celestial theme including, constellation cards on tables, a moon photo booth, and fortune tellers.

I am so excited to be the newest member of Photographers of Portland, being surrounded by so many other great creative photographers is a joy.
Every time I look at this picture of Stacey & Choncy I can’t help but smile, their love and affection for each other is so obvious in this sweet simple image taken at Portland’s Laurelhurst Park. We really lucked out when we went as the day ended up being beautiful and even a bit sunny. I look forward to sharing images from their wedding soon.
