I was so excited to photograph this Indian Haldi Ceremony in Hillsboro, Oregon recently!   I photographed the festivities over 2 days.  The first morning began with this Pithi Ceremony, followed by the Sagai Ceremony and Sangeet in the evening!  After which, the official wedding was on the second day.  It was all so colorful!

This wedding at the Portland Yacht Club kicked off the year’s wedding season!  I had never been to the Portland Yacht Club before, but it is such a great venue, especially for an indoor wedding.  The venue does have the option for an outdoor wedding, however in March it’s safe to plan for indoors.  This […]

This bride and groom tied the knot at Coopers Hall in Southeast Portland, but we photographed most of their wedding portraits at Hotel Vintage and Tanner Springs Park.  Hotel Vintage is a gorgeous boutique hotel in downtown Portland. Tanner Springs Park is near Fields Park in the heart of the Pearl District.  The bride’s room […]

A Colorful Vineyard Wedding With Mezcal and Paper Picado This was such a vibrant and colorful vineyard wedding!  In case you couldn’t tell, that’s my favorite kind of wedding!  There were bright wildflowers everywhere, and rainbow colored papel picado strung throughout the rafters of the barn.  There were also thousands of tiny twinkle lights hanging […]

“Why do bees get married? Because they found their honey!” I only have the best things to say about these two. They are the sweetest couple, and if you don’t believe me just ask the bumble bees. These two were married at Youngberg Hill, which is a beautiful venue atop a hill, overlooking vineyards for […]

A Cambodian wedding with an infinity pool overlooking rolling hills and the Blue Ridge Mountains in October?  What could be better?  How about a mansion, a bright blue sky, amazing friends, and a gorgeous couple?  I could go on and on about this day, and of course this couple and their adorable baby.  The bride […]

These two had a wedding at THE WORLD FORESTRY CENTER in Portland’s Washington Park.  They are both very laid back and their day was perfect and reflected their style.  I loved the bride’s vintage style dress.  Her hair and makeup was by the talented JEIN KING, and was so pretty!  They married in Cheatham Hall, and […]
