Portland has such a wonderful variety of venues to choose from for your wedding.  Whether you are looking for a vibrant venue and colorful wedding photography, or a more natural venue and scenic outdoor wedding photos, the Portland area has it all!  No matter which of those you prefer, my style of photography is a pretty perfect blend of the two.  I LOVE shooting outdoors, I LOVE vibrant colors, and I LOVE natural images that are true to life and will stand the test of time.  You won't see many trendy edits here.  Nothing dates a photo faster than an old style of editing or using filters that alter the colors or tones of an image.   
My favorite ceremony locations are those that are outdoors, surrounded by trees.  It's so pretty when the sunlight filters through the leaves, and creates a sparkle.  But, whether you've chosen a forest, a snowy hillside, a vineyard, or the oceanside for your nuptials, you really can't go wrong.  There's just so much beauty found in this state.   And if you don't find the venue you're looking for in the Portland city limits, you can certainly find it within an hour or two drive!
