Champoeg Wedding Photography: Neon + John at Newell Pioneer Village

I love this couple and this wedding. (I love it so much that I just ordered a new sample wedding album for my studio using these photos.) It was the first time I saw rain on an August wedding in Portland Oregon in my photography career (despite our wet reputation, it never rains in August here!) — and with another couple, this might have spelled disaster or at the very least, caused a few tears. Not these two. Neon and John stood in the rain to say their vows with smiles on their faces, and enjoyed every bit of it, as far as I could tell. Really, the drizzle lasted just long enough to break the humidity from earlier in the day and give everything a bit of a glow for the photos, so I enjoyed it immensely. And when it was done there was delicious dinner from ¿Por Que No? Taqueria, heartfelt speeches, homemade pies and lots of dancing. As a wedding photographer, there wasn’t much more I could ask for.
