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 […]

You guys!  I still can’t get over how great this Leach Botanical Garden wedding was! This venue is in outer SE Portland and truly a hidden gem.  It was my first time shooting at the venue, and I can’t wait to go back!   I loved all the vibrant color incorporated into this wedding. All […]

This wedding at Ainsworth House & Gardens was a dream. This venue is definitely one of my favorites in the city. It’s actually located in Oregon City, but it’s so close to Portland, you can barely tell the difference. It’s a historic home in a neighborhood, but it’s surrounded by such lush landscaping, that you […]

I hadn’t known these two terribly long when they first booked me for their wedding, but they have since become some of my favorite people and best friends in Portland. I was so excited for their winter wonderland snowy Timberline Lodge wedding on Mt. Hood.  (At least I had been hoping there would be snow… and […]

I first met this cute couple (and their pup Sadie) over Skype. It was nighttime here in Portland. They were having their first coffee of the morning in their living room in Singapore.  These two were the cutest and I wanted to be their friend!  They were planning a Youngberg Hill wedding. I loved all […]

This adorable couple were married at the most unique venue, the TIPI VILLAGE RETREAT in Marcola Oregon.  Having a wedding at Tipi Village Retreat is a must for anyone who loves spending as much time outdoors as possible. And especially if a camping style weekend with all your friends and family sounds perfect. Tipis fill the forest […]

I knew these two were going to have a fun wedding when I learned that their wedding weekend involved a big celebration kickball game the day before.  I’ve been playing kickball since I moved to Oregon in 2012, and have made so many great friends because of it! Their wedding at Castaway Portland was located in […]

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 […]

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! […]

I first met with this couple only 2 months before their wedding.  These cuties were a couple for six years, so when they got engaged, they decided on a short engagement.  Even with only a few months to plan, I could tell that the details for a thoughtful wedding were in good hands.  They planned […]

If you’ve followed my work for any time at all, you can certainly tell that I love shooting in nature. My images are often full of lush greens and plenty of trees. Even if I’m shooting at a venue that is in the city, I’ll find the one tree around! Therefore, when I learned that […]
