Who has missed my blog posts?! Anyone?? If so, leave me a comment and let me know you still want to see content! I’m still here and shooting all the weddings, just focused a bit more time to other media areas the past few months… but I’m back to catch up! So be ready for a wave of wedding awesomeness, it’s been a great year, and it’s not over yet! This year my season goes through December, what?!
First up we have my dear friends Gretchen and Michael. They were married at one of my favorite places in Oregon… Lost Lake Resort and Campground, up on Mt Hood near Hood River. It’s such a beautiful and magical place. I met Gretchen shortly after I moved to Portland, when I did some work for Urbaca Salon, and she’s been my friend and hair artist ever since! If you need a great salon, check out Urbaca! I’m in love with these images, and so happy for these two. Enjoy!
I think Melissa & Shaun had the best weather of 2017 so far, with their gorgeous wedding at the Oregon coast. Seriously, the day was beautiful. Not too cold, so sunny, with blue skies and fluffy clouds. And they looked pretty amazing themselves! We started at Ecola State Park for their first look and a few portraits. Melissa’s parents were there to help, and encourage crossing safety barriers and such lol 🙂 There was so much laughter, it was great! Then we headed to the other end of Cannon Beach for the ceremony on Tolovana Beach Wayside. Closer to the water it was actually freezing, so I arrived to all the guests huddled together for warmth. It was adorable. Finally, after the ceremony everyone headed over to Morris Fireside for an intimate dinner reception in their cozy fireplace room. Congrats you two!!!
