Danile lives in Portland, but happens to have gone to college in NC in practically the same town as me and my roommate. It was a neat connection to have, and we’ve all become friends over the last few years living here. When we first met her she had long long dreaded hair. Unfortunately she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and she lost her hair. She wanted to take some portraits to document this part of her life, so we did! Her dreads were awesome, but I think she looks so gorgeous and fresh even without hair!
Tynan & Scott wanted Cathedral Park engagement photos for their session in North Portland. We walked all over the park and got a variety of looks for the photos… from the stairs and stones, to the bridge, to the waterfront, and out into the grass park. They were such a lovely couple, great in front of the camera and really easy to work with. And I loved how vibrant both of Tynan’s outfits were!
Where do I start?! Kayla is one of my dearest friends and I was so happy to be able to document her wedding day! We’ve been friends since at least middle school, and have had too many fun adventures to count, one of our favorites being driving cross country together a few years ago! Kayla & Beau are a perfect match… both silly and laid back and just all around sweet & fun people Having dated briefly in high school, they both knew that their story together wasn’t finished. I’m so excited for them and this new chapter in their lives! They were married at the cutest little farm, Old River Farms, in our hometown of Burgaw North Carolina. Rain threatened all day, but the blue sky came out just in time for the ceremony and the clouds gave some gorgeous drama to the images. It was so pretty! I love and miss those Eastern clouds and storms. Be sure to watch the slideshow below for a ton of images of their day, and then scroll down to see a handful of my top favorites! Oh, and be sure to check my Facebook business page in a few days for even more!
And also! Many thanks to our friend Jennifer, who helped assist and second shoot for the day! She captured so many great moments! Here she is playing a spy during the ceremony

I shared a few of these on Facebook last year, but I completely forgot to post them here! So, baby Jaxon is quite a bit older now, but he’s still just as cute! This is my newest little cousin, so I snapped some photos of him playing in the yard while I was in NC.
I also visited my friend Leeann & got to see her baby Alice for the second time (the first time was in the hospital after birth). And she’s such a doll too! She was playing next door with her neighbors, so I snapped a few photos of everyone
Last year around this time I spent one of my weekends working for Stephanie Kaloi Photography as a second shooter. The wedding was at Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, on Mt. Hood… just a couple of hours outside of Portland, Oregon. It was gorgeous! I loved the venue and the day, and the couple and the details and the guests! I’ve been hoping for a chance to shoot there again ever since, and luckily it didn’t take too long before I had a couple book me for their wedding there! I’m heading there this weekend to photograph Liz & Moses’ wedding and I can’t wait! In the meantime, enjoy these photos I captured while working for Stephanie last year… and be sure to take a peek over at her website too… Stephanie Kaloi Photography!
