Do you know about NW Wedding Underground? It’s a project that I started last year that features the best wedding venues and vendors around (like this one featuring The Evergreen & Voysey Wedding inspiration)! For each feature, a team of vendors get together to decorate the venue and show off what they do best. Photos and […]

Last month I got to photograph a beautiful winter wedding at River’s Edge & Rosswood in SW Portland. Lots of red and green of course, and the couple included their two adorable dogs, which is always a fun time! These two love dogs, and stopped to pet every dog that passed by when we were […]

I loved photographing this Abigail’s Hideaway Wedding at The Duniway Hotel for the project that I started called NW Wedding Underground. NW Wedding Underground is a website that features favorite wedding venues and vendors in the Portland area and beyond. For each venue I feature, a bunch of talented vendors come together to beautify the space […]

Last week I got to photograph a company Christmas holiday party at Saint Irene’s, and it was so much fun! They had one of the best white elephant gift exchanges I’ve ever seen. Santa was there! Food, and drinks, and holiday lights! I love a good Christmas party. Holiday Party at Saint Irene’s Saint Irene’s […]

In case you missed my earlier post, I started a new project this year, called NW Wedding Underground! It’s a website that features favorite wedding venues (like this featured Oregon City outdoor wedding venue, Ainsworth House & Gardens) and vendors around Oregon and beyond. For each shoot, a bunch of awesome vendors come together to decorate […]

Some fun news! I started a new project earlier this year, called NW Wedding Underground, that I’m really excited about! It’s a website dedicated to featuring favorite wedding venues (hence this Victorian Belle Mansion wedding feature) and vendors in the Pacific Northwest. For each feature, a bunch of awesome vendors come together to enhance the […]

Fall photos at Al’s Garden Center are here again! Can you believe it’s already that time of year? With the success of last year’s pumpkin mini sessions, we are partnering up with Al’s Garden Center again to continue the tradition. One session will be on October 12th at the Al’s Garden Center in Sherwood. The other session will be on […]

I finally had a chance to shoot a Bridal Veil Lakes wedding, and it was all I had ever dreamt of, and more! This is hands down my all time favorite wedding venue in Oregon. It. Is. Gorgeous. Magical. A fairy tale land. I started the day with some detail shots of the venue. The […]

I love this place! This wedding at Lost Lake Resort & Campground was the most laid back, fun and colorful wedding of the year! I’ve been visiting Lost Lake ever since I first moved to Oregon in 2012. Day trips up there is one of my favorite summertime activities. So, I was more than thrilled […]

This wedding at Wind Mountain Ranch was an extra special occasion! When I moved to Portland, the groom had two open rooms in his home that my friend and I rented. We lived there for an entire year. We were there when he got back from his very first date with his now bride. He […]

Wow.  Wow wow wow.   This couple wanted amazing images of their Latourell Falls elopement, even if that meant jumping in, which we all practically did!   The heavy rains and snowmelt combined with extremely windy conditions. Neither of which are very unusual, but it definitely made the falls unpredictable! You never knew when a bucket-full […]

This wedding at Polaris Hall was so colorful and pretty! Polaris Hall is also a concert venue, and I’ve seen many shows there. Not to mention, this venue is like, less than a mile from my house, so that’s a definite plus! This couple was so adorable. There were so many kids included in the […]

This wedding at Cathedral Park was perfect. This couple lives just down the street from Cathedral Park, so it was only fitting that they chose to get married there as well! I like to joke, “you got married under a bridge?!”, but it’s really no joke how beautiful this place is. It is the most […]

This wedding at Coopers Hall was a blast! Coopers Hall is such a great urban venue right in central SE Portland. We started the day at Hotel Lucia in downtown Portland. We took some portraits around the Park Blocks, and then headed across the river for the festivities! Coopers Hall is a winery and taproom […]
