Newell House Wedding – Anna and Jacob

view full post


Also, check out those flowers. Oh my gosh! Anna hired her friend who is an amazing florist, Sweet Nellie’s Flowers and just let her go crazy! She must have used at least 50 different kinds of flowers and the reception looked absolutely perfect! My good friend Dee Richardson, owner of Diva Matters Ministry officiated and did a wonderful job making their ceremony personalized just for them! Michael of John Ross Music sang and played beautifully during the ceremony and reception. (Seriously, he sounds like Jack Johnson) And then of course the dinner and h’orderves were catered by Rogue Gormet, located in Newberg.

Portland Waterfront Engagement Session – Kimi & Khiem

Oh my gosh, Kimi and Khiem were so much fun to photograph! Even though the engagement session was the first time we had ever met, they were so easy going, we hit it off immediately. We started out just strolling around the SW waterfront area in downtown Portland. I loved how windy it was! Kimi’s got the perfect hair for blowing in the wind.

One of the really cool things about this shoot is that Khiem is one of the engineers who helped design the new Transit Light Rail bridge and we were able to get it in some of the shots! Its a pretty fun addition to the Portland waterfront skyline.

Bridal Veil Falls and Lavender Farm Engagement

Bridal Veil Engagement Session

As we made our way back to the falls, we stopped on the side of the road where there was some amazing light streaming through the trees and a spectacular view of Mt. Hood!

But my favorite part of this engagement session and where the real adventure began, was with our hike to Bridal Veil Falls. Jeff and Nicole were totally open to my “creative vision” and climbed up a massive boulder to stand up in front of the falls. We found the perfect beam of light peaking through, and then a nice breeze came to pick up Nicole’s skirt a little. I wish I could take credit for it, but at least I pushed the button at the right time, right?

Yellow Gold Farm Sunset Wedding

I’ve definitely learned the secret to having a great wedding: Surround yourself with people you love and let everything else go! I can easily say that Aubrey and Nathan did just that.

Their wedding was vibrant and beautiful with blue, purple, pink and orange hues. The bride worked with her florists of Celebration Floral to come up with a gorgeous new design of floral trees for the ceremony and reception. Celebration has even named this after her, you can also request to have “The Aubrey” at your wedding!

Portland French Bulldog Engagement

we walked along the boardwalk of the Columbia river in Vancouver. The sun was just starting to set so we got that beautiful warm light everywhere. I love the color pallet of this whole engagement shoot! The purples and oranges are so good together.
