This couple met at Lewis and Clark College, so the lovely gardens there were a great choice for this adorable family session. I had such fun with them and their giggly little girls, and I couldn’t get enough of the adorable cowboy boots.

When I was discussing locations for their family session with these adorable folks, the idea of the coast came up, and the boys apparently chanted “BEACH! BEACH! BEACH! until the decision was final. Which was perfect, because everyone was so happy to be on the Oregon coast! (It’s truly one of my favorite places to be - I could stand and stare at the Pacific Ocean for hours.) We had so much fun during this session. And the finished products - big, lovely bamboo mounted art for the living room wall - was truly stunning. . .

Niki and Jeremy’s Columbia River Gorge wedding was so much fun! It was quite a bit snowier in The Dalles than it had been when we visited the venue together last December - and colder too! - but the happy couple and their bridal party took it in stride. I think the credit really goes to Niki and Jeremy for keeping each other and their friends laughing all day. . .

I love it when my wedding clients get back in touch as their families grow! Just a few short years ago we were celebrating their love at Bridal Veil Lakes, and now they have a whole new person to love (and MAN are they in love with her)! I can’t wait to see little Kate grow up. . .

Astoria Wedding Photography

Astoria Wedding Photography

This was my first time photographing a wedding in Astoria, Oregon, despite it being so close to my home in Portland, Oregon. And what a beautiful day it was! I loved our first look in front of the iconic Astoria Bridge, the big windows during their lovely bilingual ceremony, and the gorgeous sunset at the outlook at the Astoria Column. The beautiful bridge was a great metaphor for Johanna and Philippe’s marriage - a bridge between her American family and his French family. . .

I was thrilled when Lauren and Daniel got in touch with me about photographing their wedding after Daniel was a groomsman in a wedding I shot on Whidbey Island last year. I definitely remembered them as “the fun couple” from that wedding - the ones on the dance floor having all the laughs. I had a great time at their engagement session last fall, and their wedding didn’t disappoint: a gorgeous high desert sunset, lovely friends and family, and about the most fun I’ve ever seen on a wedding dance floor. . .

Portland Engagement Session

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.

This was a first for me but so much fun - Chase practices historic European martial arts and wanted some photographs in his armor. We wanted a natural, wooded setting but still a dramatic, low-key look. We drew quite a bit of attention in Portland’s Forest Park on a beautiful Fall afternoon! Such a great mini portrait session - I’m looking forward to working with Chase and his fiancée Danielle on their upcoming wedding!
