Urban Wedding at The Little Church- Portland OR Wedding

Ryan and Tiffany's Portland Wedding. 

This wedding was different than any other wedding I've shot. Partially because the couple was so super cool and fun to work with but also because it had more locations than any other wedding I've done. We started at the Kennedy school, Then headed downtown to the hotel where the bride was getting ready then back to the otherside of town to the wedding venue then back downtown for the reception. 😳  It was a little crazy to think about how it was all going to work when creating the timeline-- but it worked. 
What an incredible day it was. Seriously I am so so lucky, I get to work with such awesome couples like Ryan and Tiff.  When I met them, I knew their wedding was going to be such a fun day to capture.  I had the best time getting to know them at their engagement session and talking over all the wedding details. So day of, when I showed up to the Mcmenamins Kennedy school to photograph the guys and I saw chalk art that read "Game time MotherF@#ka" outside the room, I knew my 2nd shooter and I were in for a treat. 
I think we spent the entire day laughing with the bridal party and their families. My face hurt from smiling.  The couple made my job easy because they are smokin hot! The details were so cute and personal to them. The bridal party was so much fun and so full of energy. Here are the highlights from their day: 

Ceremony: The Little Church
Reception and Catering: Bridgeport Brewery
Hair and MUA: Ivy Barr
Flowers: Gypsy Bleu

"Sometimes you just know" Mark and Lindsay Engaged {Vancouver WA Wedding Photographer}

"Sometimes you just know!" That's what Mark said to me as he explained his marriage proposal story. I listened to him as he described the experience and I watch her face light up with the most beautiful gleam. Totally and Completely in L O V E.  (All the feels people seriously!)  The way he spoke about Lindsay and how much he loves and wants to marry her-- I thought to myself "I have to photograph this wedding" 
I'm such a sucker for love.. but sometimes I have these clients that I just completely fall in love with!! (who am I kidding.. I love all of them) But- this particular couple just made me so excited to document their special day. Seriously- I'm so honored that I get to photograph their wedding at The Country Garden Estates this summer! 
These two just hit the road and moved to Sunny Arizona. With about a week's notice, we managed to squeeze in an engagement session just before they left. It was a super yucky rainy forecast-- One I'm particularly used to, living in the NW as Photographer. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find the location, when it's super cold and wet outside.  So we hopped in their truck and we drove around downtown Vancouver. I had an idea of where I wanted to go and I told them I'm going to just look for areas based on the light and what inspired me. 
I actually love being forced out of my comfort zone and finding a new unexpected place to shoot. So here are the images from Mark and Lindsay's Engagement Session: 

 I think this last set are my faves!! 😊😊😊😊😊

Are they not just the cutest ever?!?! 

Can't you see why I loved them instantly!! Congratulations Mark and Lindsay! I can't wait to photograph your wedding 💗💗💗💗
