It’s been such a beautiful October for photos this year! Here’s a lovely little engagement session with Jenny and Charlie in Lower McCleay Park and Trail in Portland’s Forest Park. It was great to spend an afternoon with them and get to see their playful side! I’m looking forward to working with them again for their wedding next summer.
I was so excited when Lauren and Daniel got in touch with me about photographing their wedding. Daniel was the best man in a wedding I photographed this past summer, and he and his fiancée Lauren were about as much fun as wedding guests could be at that reception. I can't wait to photograph their wedding in Bend next summer. . .
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.
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!
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!
How stinking cute are these two? It's been pretty rainy in Portland, Oregon, lately, so it took us a few weeks to get a day with reasonable weather. We worked it out, though, and I think it was worth the wait. Looking forward to their 2017 wedding!
Paula and Mike wanted an industrial feel for their engagement session, and they had their first date at a coffee shop, so Paula found the lovely Ristretto Roasters at the Schoolhouse Electric Building in the NW industrial area. I love the exposed beams and open space there, paired with the vintage-style fixtures from Schoolhouse Electric. So many fun options for me! Afterwards we went to Tanner Springs - a city park with an industrial feel - to finish out the session. I couldn't be happier with the way the photos turned out, and I look forward to their wedding later this year!
