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 &qu

"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 p

The Inn at Red Hills Wedding in Wine Country {Dundee, OR Wedding}

They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. So a lot of rain on your wedding day, must mean it will be a long happy marriage! Natalie and Andy got Married at the Inn at Red Hills in Dundee, Oregon. The rain poured down from the sky on this fall day. It was my second wedding after having baby Rowen just about 4 weeks prior. I knew it was going to be a great event because Natalie chose some of my favorite vendors. The details executed by my friend Liz at Soliel Bliss Event Productions and Miss Formal Event Rentals created a romantic atmosphere and the rainy weather didn't stop us from celebrating and capturing a beautiful ceremony and reception. Many of the businesses located in the same building as the Inn were so gracious and welcoming and allowed us to take photos in their tasting rooms to keep out of the rain. We really lucked out with some super nice people and some great photo spots. Here are some highlights from their fall wine country wedding:
