Kate and Dylan chose the Crystal Springs Rhododendron garden for their engagement shoot. We met up just before sunset to capture the golden summer light against the greenery, what a pretty location! These two are so incredibly sweet together and we had a lot of fun taking in the beautiful scenery and snapping these fun photos! Their love and happiness was obvious in front of the camera and easy to photograph. Congrats again Kate and Dylan!
We met Sara and Nick at The International Rose Test Garden for a romantic morning shoot! These two have such an effortless and sweet love that was easy to capture on camera. It was fun walking around the rows of roses and snapping photos of them enjoying each other’s company. We can’t wait for their wedding this September!
Melanie and Brian dazzled our hearts last fall during their engagement shoot, so we really couldn’t wait for their summer wedding at Horning’s Hideout. The day was perfectly curated with pretty details and attributes to their love and relationship. Melanie wore a gorgeous gown by Claire Pettibone that she got at The English Dept. and vegan leather shoes from Beyond Skin. Her hair and makeup, done by the talented Kirstie Wight, noted hints of Spanish style to go along with the overall vibe of their wedding. Guests enjoyed flavorful vegan cuisine from Verde Cocina, and a vegan/gluten free cake from Petunia’s Pies and Pastries! Other notable details were the incredible floral arrangements by Brier and Ivy, and hand painted tiles from Mexico as their wedding favors!
The entire day was filled with laughs, tears, and a lot of love. We are so happy this amazing couple chose us to document their day! Congratulations again Melanie and Brian!
From the moment we met Chelsea at our Portland studio, we knew that we wanted to work with her and her fiancé, Chris. They met us for their engagement shoot at Powell Butte Nature Park for a summer sunset session. Their charisma, humor, and obvious love for each other showed in every photo. We are so excited for their wedding this month!
