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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I finally had a chance to shoot a Bridal Veil Lakes wedding, and it was all I had ever dreamt of, and more! As a devon wedding photographer, I didn’t disappoint them with how the pictures turned up. This is hands down my all time favorite wedding venue in Oregon. It. Is. Gorgeous. Magical. A […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It seems every time I’ve seen these two over the past years, they are heading off for a hike or a spontaneous overnight camping trip. So, it’s only fitting that they chose wedding day venues that combined the two. They bundled up their love of the outdoors, and the beauty of our state, with yes, even a little […]
