One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is when an old friend gets in touch about her big day. So I was delighted to head down to Ashland for Rhea's wedding, and to meet her husband and family. Such a lovely day! Here are a few early favorites, I can't wait to share more soon!
I think this is my sixth (or maybe seventh) session with these lovely friends and their growing family, and every time, it's such a delight. And this time I got to take adorable sister photos too! Lulu is reportedly having a bit of trouble adjusting to not being the baby anymore, but she did a great job at being the big sister while I was there . . .
Burt proposed to Emily earlier this week, and then we walked around the Portland Waterfront and took photos together. They were SO happy and relieved and excited and adorable. It was a great afternoon.
Compared to the crazy weather Portland has had for the last month or so, the snowfall on Lisa and Michael's beautiful Elder Hall wedding looks fairly quaint, but I remember being pretty concerned about the weather the day before. . . but Elder Hall in North Portland is such a lovely, warm place to come in out of the snow. Add some delicious food, whiskey, and good friends and family and the day turned out perfect - intimate, warm, and a ton of fun. I am so honored to have been a part of it!
It was very icy at Cathedral Park when I met up with Jessalin, Kevin, and their adorable dog Eddie -- kids in the neighborhood were having a great time packing down the snow with their sleds and snowboards. So it was a festive atmosphere, but a little tough to get around. We still had a great time, though, and Eddie got to show off his adorable scarf, so it was all good. I can't wait for their wedding this summer!
Anna and Chris braved the cold and the ice for a (very quick) engagement session in the Columbia River Gorge today. Did I mention it was cold? It was cold. But oh-so-pretty! And everyone was in surprisingly good spirits. Looking forward to their (undoubtedly warmer) wedding this Fall!
Lisa + Michael and their families and friends braved the weather this weekend for a beautiful snowy wedding at Elder Hall in North Portland. I can't wait to show off the rest of their beautiful wedding photos!
I'm always excited for engagement sessions with my wedding couples, but I'm especially excited when I get to meet their puppies! (Casey + Morgan's adorable French Bulldog was a little more excited about the other dogs in the area than he was in me, but I didn't take it personally.) We had a lovely time walking around the city and getting some winter engagement photos!
