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.
