Katie + Trevor | PNW Intimate Backyard Wedding | Portland Wedding Photographer

So, I was really excited for this wedding. I've known Trevor for a while now and could not wait to officially meet his love, Katie and their adorable baby girl, Paige.  They got married in their hometown of Spokane, WA at a family barn and it was just the sweetest.  We were surrounded by all of the love of their joyous family and friends and the overwhelming beauty of the PNW. Katie and Trevor were high school sweethearts and life brought them back together.  I love love.  Thank you Trevor and Katie for such a beautiful day and for having me there to document your intimate wedding celebration.  It was such a honor.  

Jean + Tylor | Intimate Eugene, Oregon Backyard Wedding | Portland Wedding Photographer

This wedding was extra goodness for me because I've known Jean and Tylor for a bunch of years and I love their little family.  They are amazing!  With three kiddos (one is a newborn) they still managed to pack up their entire lives and move from Las Vegas to Eugene, OR and simultaneously plan and throw the most beautiful backyard wedding I've ever been to. I spent 2 days in Eugene, OR and became quite smitten. The previous morning I was able to take a boat ride on the Fern Ridge Reservoir and walk Downtown before their rehearsal dinner. I arrived that evening to house full of so much love and warmth and as I took pictures I got hear Tylor and Jeans family and friends talk about how much the bride and groom mean to them and how their love has inspired each of them.  It was very special.  The following day was their wedding and it was so fun to spend time and watch as everyone got ready.  Much of the day was spent with them loving on their kids and just hanging out.  They both were so peaceful and relaxed and it was so nice to see them actually enjoying those hours before they said I do...It was such an honor to witness and document their intimate wedding.  Thank you Jean and Tylor for trusting me with some of your most special memories!

Rachel + Sam | Columbia River Gorge Wahclella Falls Couples Session | Portland Wedding Photographer

This was such an awesome day!  It was my first time to the Wahclella Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.  The sun was beaming and Rachel and Sam were two of the happiest love birds I have had the pleasure of photographing!  There were several of us photographers out here for a workshop and we were all pumped for this Couples Session!  We made several stops along the river to take some shots and soak in the views.  I couldn't stop smiling. . .Wahclella Falls had become one of my favorites places ever! Rachel and Sam were just as excited as I was to get down close to the spraying, misty falls and dip our feet in the chilly water.  It was a day full of exploring and learning and making incredible memories.
