A Lovely Day | Portland Oregon Wedding Photography »

Carissa and Shawn planned their entire wedding in two days (yes, really!) They eloped at Produce Row Cafe in Portland on St. Patrick’s Day. After their ceremony witnessed only by their nearest and dearest, they rode off in a vintage Mini Cooper to their after party at Paddy’s Bar in downtown Portland. They partied the night away (as they should!) with their friends and celebrated their love on a very lucky day. Congrats Carissa and Shawn!

Portland Bride and Groom has done it again with another successful Rocked Bridal event! The Nines Hotel was decked out and filled with incredible vendors and delightful brides and grooms-to-be. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, colorful cocktails, and hard sodas from Henry’s. All while taking in the creative booths and swooning over the dresses from BHLDN. We had the pleasure of meeting many of you and it was so great to hear about your weddings! Congratulations to the big winners from the event as well!

Hooray for engagement sessions! Now that the weather is getting nicer here in Portland we are taking advantage of it! Aly and Eric met Amanda in Downtown Portland for an urban shoot during golden hour. We walked along the waterfront and into downtown for the city vibes and murals.  We even snagged some seats inside the lobby of the iconic Ace Hotel, but didn’t leave without jumping into their photobooth for a keepsake! Aly was such a trooper walking all around even on a sprained ankle! We loved getting to know this couple while shooting and we can’t wait for their wedding at Hotel deLuxe at the end of the summer. Congrats again Aly and Eric!

Thank you all for coming to the 2017 Portland Bridal Show at the Oregon Convention Center last weekend!  It was awesome to meet so many enthusiastic brides and grooms and hear about each and every wedding.  The show was truly unforgettable and filled with wonderful vendors and attendees. The fashion show was exciting with remarkable gowns and tuxes from some of Portland’s best bridal shops (did you see those gowns from Anna’s Bridal? OMG!) Our booth was a hit and our 2017 wedding season is looking to be our best year yet.

We also want to congratulate the winners of our wedding giveaway—Kiersten and Rich! We cannot wait to photograph your big day!

Thanks again to everyone that came to say hello. We can’t wait for next year!

As always, we couldn’t do this without our beautiful and fun-loving clients. Thank you to everyone that helps us live our dream and we are so excited to kick off wedding season 2017 with the Portland Bridal Show this weekend!
