A few weeks ago Margaret, of Q6 Model & Artist MGMT, came by the studio for a quick photo session.  We kept it simple and sweet and I got to try out a few new things which was fun!  This girl is gorge, and such a great model!  I mean, how do I even start to narrow down my favorites, when she looks fantastic in every image?!

We headed out to Huntington beach for this bridal session, and it was a magnificent day at the beach. Lesile looked gorgeous and we were able to head to the Atalaya Catle for some evening shots. The setting was just right and this bride really wasn’t afraid of anything!

Ran & Rong were married at one of my favorite North Carolina wedding venues, the NC Museum of Art, in Raleigh NC!  I only met them briefly through Facetime a couple of months before their wedding date, so I was so excited to get to NC to meet them in person for their wedding day.  These two are just the nicest and sweetest, and I could have photographed them all day.  Their families and friends were all so friendly as well!  You could feel the love all around through the whole day.  It was so much fun getting to document a day with several Chinese traditions as well… such as the tea ceremony, and a game that is played between the bride and groom and their wedding parties… where the bridesmaids have to put the guys through a challenge of sorts before the groom can come steal his bride away.

Watch the slideshow below to see the full story of their wedding day, and then scroll down to see some of my favorite images from the day.  Enjoy!

Matt and Brandon wanted some head shots as well as some couple portraits, so we headed out to Cathedral Park in North Portland! I love this park because of its view of the Saint John’s bridge. The architecture of the bridge and the park coming together makes for great harmony. We had a great time hanging out in the park, these two are so cute together, and the photos turned out wonderful!
