Sunflowers & a ski resort gave this summertime wedding on Mt. Hood lots of charm. I love Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, and have had the pleasure of photographing quite a few weddings there. Although it’s a decent size resort and hotel, weddings always feel so intimate there. Maybe it’s because you get the whole entire […]

I have wanted to photograph a wedding at this incredible venue for years.  Therefore, when this couple told me they planned to get married at Deepwood Estate, I was ecstatic!  It is now called Deepwood Museum & Gardens, and it is located in Salem, just a short drive from Portland.  It was built in 1894 […]

This wedding ceremony aboard the Crystal Dolphin was a highlight of my year! The Crystal Dolphin is part of The Portland Spirit fleet, which everyone in Portland should be familiar with! The Portland Spirit is the sightseeing/brunch/dinner/sunset/party/dance cruise ship that travels up and down the Willamette year round! I’m actually surprised I’ve lived here for […]

I adored this Brush Prairie backyard wedding! I mean, if you have access to a beautiful piece of private property, why NOT have a backyard wedding?! Plus, this wedding included purple as a main color, and we should all know that purple is my favorite color! Brush Prairie Backyard Wedding I met this fun couple […]

This intimate Secret Garden wedding was so lovely. Did you know that Portland has a Secret Garden? It does! And it’s located in Washington Park… tucked away next to The International Test Rose Garden. But shhhhh…. don’t let the secret out! It’s a large grassy area surrounded by trees. There are 3 fairly hidden paths […]

Before I get started on how lovely this Caswell Sculpture Garden wedding was, let me clarify that this was actually a vow renewal. Whaaaat?! I know, right?! In fact, the couple have been together for 20 years. Whaaaat?! I know, right?! Are they even old enough for that to be true?! Haha. They eloped in […]

Last weekend I photographed a lovely Raven’s Nest Wedding at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood. It was a gorgeous sunny and warm day, but just because it’s June doesn’t mean Summer! Just a couple of days ago it snowed at Timberline. What?! I have so enjoyed working with this adorable couple, and I’m excited to […]

This wedding at The Laurelhurst Club was very romantic. If you’ve ever spent much time in Portland, you’ve most likely taken a stroll around Laurelhurst Park. It’s one of the prettiest parks in the city. There are majestic tall evergreens and even a large duck pond. The backdrop makes for beautiful portraits. What most people […]

This Scholls Valley Lodge wedding could not have been more perfect!  It was day 2 for me of photographing the festivities for this Indian wedding celebration weekend.  I started the previous day with the Haldi and Sagai Ceremonies as well as the Sangeet.  Be sure to check out the links to those blog posts down […]

This was part 2 of a colorful Portland Indian wedding I photographed recently.  I photographed the Pithi Ceremony earlier in the morning, and in the evening photographed this Sagai Ceremony and Sangeet.  The following day I photographed the official wedding at Scholls Valley Lodge in Hillsboro.  It was such an amazing weekend, full of bright […]
