Allison and Bill were married a couple weeks back inside the Adrianna Grand Hill Ballroom in downtown Portland. The day was smooth, easy going and filled with personal touches from the bride and groom. Allison had some rad custom Nike’s for dancing, while Bill sported his Arizona themed cuff links. I also loved the Oregon themed decor complete with pinecones and a beautiful Oregon guest book and Oregon ornaments as favors for each guest. Most of all, I was beyond thankful for a short break in the weather so we could venture outside for some photos in the empty rain soaked Portland streets. That 20 minute walk around the block with Bill and Allison was my favorite part of the day. The night ended so well when all the guests lined up and they slowly walked through saying their goodbyes as everyone cheered them on. I definitely got the vibe from watching them, and from seeing the love and support of their friend’s and families that these two are so great together. Congrats Allison and Bill!

Kim and Russel met with me for their engagement shoot on a super chilly Portland day. They did an incredible job of keeping happy and looking as not-freezing-cold as possible We took photos at Washington Park to start and then they led me to the place where they first meet in a Portland running group. We headed over to the base of Mississippi Street and walked around the sidewalks under the highway overpasses. The personal touches people bring to shoots are always my favorite, especially when it brings us to a cool location I haven’t photographed before. There was even a heart painted on a wall close to where the magic all began. (I didn’t do it, I swear!) Looking forward to these two tying the knot on a (much warmer) day this coming summer!

Incredible winter weddings can happen here in Portland, especially with these two. Rain or shine, love always wins.

We chose the perfect day to shoot in Washington Park with the sun shining through the dense woods of Forest Park. Kaycee and Mike are good friends of mine and I’m so thrilled they’re getting married! They were that couple we all patiently waited for to get engaged. Mike did it right and proposed to Kaycee on top of a mountain on a recent trip to Europe. Swoon! So romantic.
Congrats you two! You’re fun, playful and marriage is so the right step for you. Can’t wait to see what this next year brings for you!
