You guys!  I still can’t get over how great Tara & Stephanie’s wedding at Leach Botanical Gardens in southeast Portland was this past weekend!  It was my first time shooting at that venue, but what a hidden gem right in the city!   Both Tara and Stephanie were just glowing all day, and their friends and family were the sweetest.  At one point during the reception toasts, one of the little girls (who had made herself my new best friend) came up and held onto my arm while I was shooting, it was so adorable.  Their ceremony was officiated by a Buddhist priest and had a lot of special touches that I hadn’t seen before.  And of course all of their details were beautiful… anytime a bride wears torquoise shoes I know it’s a perfect photo match for me:)  I wish Tara & Stephanie all the best!!!
