Lindsay & Roberto were an absolute joy to work with from engagement session to their amazing wedding. They had a beautiful day for their ceremony in Mount Tabor Park, with a highlight being the New Orleans style, second line parade. I could’ve done a blog post of just those photos. The reception afterward at Plaza Del Toro was also beautiful & of course, had amazing food.

Kevin & Travis travelled from Memphis, TN to have an intimate, river boat cruise wedding on the Crystal Dolphin. So, not only did I get to document the love of these two super sweet & relaxed gentlemen, I also was treated to my first cruise along the Willamette River on a perfect summer night. I love my job.

Gabby & Stephen - Wedding - Plaza Del Toro, Portland, Oregon

These two lovely humans moved to Portland from New York not so long ago & I'm sure glad they did. It was a pleasure documenting their beautiful wedding at Plaza Del Toro in Portland. Plaza Del Toro is an event space owned by chef John Gorham, who is responsible for a number of other amazing Portland restaurants (so the food was amazing, of course). PDX brought the PNW vibes in early June & it was perfect.

Janine & Robin - Couple's Session - Columbia River Gorge

Latourell Falls engagement photography017.JPG

Janine & Robin were traveling to Portland & wanted to a portrait session at the Columbia River Gorge as a keepsake of their trip. First we made a quick stop at the Portland Women's Forum State Scenic Viewpoint for a few shots overlooking the gorge. Then we headed to beautiful Latourell Falls. This lovely couple plus those falls... it feels a little bit like cheating.

Janessa & Charles - Wedding - Riverview Restaurant, Troutdale, Oregon

I loved this wedding on a lot of levels. Janessa & Charles (aka Chuck) are fellow ex-pats of Chicago that now live in Portland. Janessa & I both worked in the wedding industry in Chicago, but I hadn't officially met her or Chuck, a former wedding photographer himself, until here in Portland. Now they feel like old friends. Janessa owned her own floral business in Chicago, which you can probably tell from the amazing florals she had courtesy of Botanica Floral Design

Just a beautiful wedding of two terrific people on a perfectly PNW crisp fall day.
