Welcome TO THE

Jenna and Armando are the kind of couple who are MEANT to be: the kind who finish each other’s sentences and whose first concern is always, always each other.  It’s been such an honor getting to know them over the last year!  We first met at Lauren and Corey’s forest wedding, and when we discovered we […]

Taylor and Colby have been together for ten years, and this spring they decided to make it official and become HUSBAND AND WIFE!!  Colby proposed in Pacific City (remember their epic beach engagement session there?), and they held their wedding yesterday at the beautiful Carlton Hills Vineyard. Let’s talk daddy-daughter first looks!  Literally MY FAVORITE!!  […]

You remember Lauren and Corey’s forest engagement session with their sweet dogs, right?  I knew their wedding would be just as fun and relaxed–it was in the forest with their dogs too!  Lauren and her bridesmaids got ready at McMenamin’s Grand Lodge, and I met them there for some photos before we made the drive out to their […]

The week of catching up on wedding blogs continues!!  Next up is Kailey and Andrew’s wedding in St. Helens.  Their engagement session at Champoeg State Park was super fun and I was so excited for their big day!  They started the day by getting ready at a family friend’s house, where they had their first […]

Pink and gold!  AHHH!  My favorites!  There was so much fun sparkly details to this wedding!  From the fabulous pink and gold cake to the gold sequined tablecloths–I knew when Lindsey told me about these colors that I HAD to photograph this wedding!  Pink and gold were my wedding colors when I got married in […]

If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve seen photos from Camille and Michael’s fabulous Thanksgiving-weekend wedding at Troutdale House, but I just realized I never shared them here!!  What???  I blame the holidays. Camille and Michael both got ready on different levels of the venue, but didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony.  […]

Kate and Dustin’s August wedding at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains had pretty much everything that makes a truly excellent wedding: a couple in love, surrounded by the love of their closest friends and family, a post-ceremony exit on a paddleboat, and a giant heart shaped donut from Voodoo Donuts instead of a cake!   The […]

From the minute I met these two, I knew their wedding was going to be an emotional, joyful day and it totally WAS!  You might remember their Jenkins Estate engagement session last fall, where they were basically just super adorable and cuddly and in love, making my job super easy.  A few weeks ago, their wedding […]

I’m so thrilled to share Emily & Ryan’s fabulous fall wedding at the Green Villa Barn in Independence!  First, can we talk favorite things?  A barn, burlap, lace, and heirloom details are IT!  Emily and Ryan put so much effort into making each detail truly meaningful to them and their families, and intertwined that with […]
