Beth & John wanted a location full of green and trees, so we headed to Hoyt Arboretum in NW Portland for their Engagement Photos. It was such a pretty day, and these two are such sweetie pies together. I loved their lighter pastel colors. They eloped shortly after this engagement session up at Lost Lake in Mt. Hood. I was there to photograph it, so click the link to see photos from their wedding day too!
I was so excited for Maggie & Lydia’s wedding day. I’ve been wanting to photograph a wedding at the Kennedy School since I first moved here and walked through the quirky halls… it’s one of my favorite McMenamin’s for sure! And Lydia and Maggie are two of the sweetest out there, and were such a pleasure to work with… as were all their guests. You could really feel the love and happiness bouncing between everyone all day. Such a joyous occasion! And while same sex marriage has been legal in Oregon for a bit now, it was a wonderful touch that just a few days after Lydia & Maggie were able to tie the knot, the rest of the country now has the privilege as well. Love is a beautiful thing.

Newborn Bowie… first, can we say, great name?! Secondly, he came to his first photo shoot with his skateboard and his Kurt Cobain sweater… so we know this kid is gonna be the coolest on the block! He was a charm throughout the entire session, sleeping like a log and letting us pose him with all his favorite toys
Kelsey & Mike wanted their Engagement Photos to take place with Multnomah Falls as the background since they are also getting married there, so that’s just what we did! We started at the base of the waterfall trail and ended our session on the main bridge that goes over the two pools. It was a gorgeous day, and the area was so green and vibrant!
I’ve been looking forward to Katherine & Justin’s wedding since they booked last year. Then got even more excited after they visited Portland for their engagement session! Finally the big weekend came and I headed off to New Hope Pennsylvania (near Philadelphia) for their wedding day at Holly Hedge Estate. It was such a beautiful venue! The day threatened rain all day, and even though the ceremony was moved inside last minute just in case, it held off until late into the reception. Robb and I had such a great time working with everyone at this wedding! And I also got to see one of my past favorite couples, Molly & Bobby (Katherine was a guest at their wedding several years ago)! Be sure to watch the slideshow below for loads of photos and to see the full story of their day (including some video clips captured by Robb), and then scroll down to see some of my most favorite images from the day.
