Tegan and Justin’s stunning sunrise session in the Columbia River Gorge.
“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” – Albus Dumbledore
The Columbia Gorge is a magnificent piece of nature, especially in the fall. So when Stephanie contacted me about possible locations for their engagement session, I added the Cascade Locks to the list.
Dani and Dan had a sweet country wedding on their property out in North Plains, OR. It was mid-July, so of course, the sun was bright, but the skies were gorgeous. When we arrived, I headed down the road to a family members house to meet her and her bridesmaids while Bill met up with the boys at their home. Their little boy … Read More A Country Wedding in North Plains, OR | Dan and Dani
I may be a little biased as Makaila is family, but I LOVED her and Miles’ wedding at Deep Woods Events in Elmira, OR. Being a geek fits into our family. Technically she’s my husband’s cousin, but I have known her since she was in the single digits. A while back, she brought Miles to one of our family holidays, and we instantly felt … Read More A Very Nerdy Wedding at Deep Woods Events | Makaila and Miles
Kristina was a friend from childhood. We use to spend our summers together camping around Mt. Adams, boating in Lake Merwin, and having BBQ’s with our families. Our families drifted apart when I was a teen, so we lost touch until my brother found all of them again. So when Kristina contacted me about her wedding, I was thrilled! Living in Tacoma now, we … Read More A Vancouver, WA Waterfront Engagement | Kristina and Josh
Portland in January is exactly what you think it is, dark and rainy. But that doesn’t deter me from capturing amazing people getting married, especially when Bridgeport brewery is involved! Ashley and Kevin were getting ready at the Heathman Hotel and then having their ceremony and reception at Bridgeport Brewing, which I got super excited for as its a mix of two things I … Read More A Portland Bridgeport Brewing Wedding with Ashley and Kevin
Trying to find a non-rainy in February here in Portland is a tricky thing to do. Luckily, we scheduled Amanda and Jamison’s engagement shoot, and the rain stayed away from us the entire time. However, the Hoyt Arboretum does provide a fantastic tree canopy in case the rain starts up. We started just above the Wedding Meadow and hiked down along the path to the Redwood … Read More Hoyt Arboreteum Engagement | Amanda and Jamison
“For Every Blue Moon and Berry Burst Moment, there’s been you.” That was on a placard at the head table, and Sarra had made sure to pull me aside and let me know what it means. They just happened to be drinking BJ’s Berry Burst during some high points in their relationship. For bad days, they always seemed to be reaching for a Blue … Read More Summit Grove Lodge – Sarra and Chris
When two best friends get married the same year and then get pregnant around the same time, you know their children are going to be best friends growing up. Holly and Tahnee were so excited to have their maternity sessions together, and not to mention it’s a great way to get everyone together and hang out in the snow! I had the pleasure of … Read More A Snowy Maternity Session – Times Two | Holly & Jeff and Tahnee & Jacob
And we’re back with Kylie and Kelly! I really loved working with these two and had to share more from their finished session.
When Mariessa told me she was getting married out by Sunset Falls out in Yacolt, WA I got super excited. I grew up going to that area with my friends to go swimming, hiking, and camping, and I currently live a very short ways away.
I put the address into my GPS and headed into the great dark area. I call it dark because there is no phone service there and the GPS services kinda, sorta know their way out there.
