Brett + Anna = Married & In LOVE!

Brett & Anna were married on a sweet sunny day in early October at the Camas Meadows Golf Club.  Though we didn’t get to spend too much time together prior to their wedding, I am so happy and honored to have been chosen to capture their special day.  They are two beautifully genuine people with personality and glowing smiles to match!  We have more to come, but for now: turn up the volume, click the link below and enjoy a special highlight of their wedding :)

Ryan & Maegan are Married!

I have been so so blessed this year to have such beautiful clients, inside and out.  Ryan & Maegan [and their wonderful families] are among two of my favorites!  Sweet, kind and simply fun loving – these two are a match made :)

Glowing & In LOVE is exactly how you should be on your wedding day!

Here is an absolute dreamy wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes shot by [me!] Portland base wedding photographer, Erica Hartman.

Carrie is one of my close college friends and is completely responsible for sparking my intrigue with Portland.  If you’re happy I’m here, you should thank her [and my fiance!]  After an attempted move up together, then a move back home… 3 years in between… we now both live in Portland and have businesses just minutes from each other in the Pearl.  It’s pretty awesome to have an old friend here!  Almost as awesome as her finding the love of her life in the Pacific NW!  It was always meant to be :)

I have to say, I was actually there on Chris & Carries first (un-official) date.  Yup.  The LUCKY Lab, a few beers and one lady who-ALWAYS-gets-what-she-wants set the scene for a happily ever after to be!  I’m not quite sure Chris knew it at the time, but saying yes to hanging out after a soccer game was one smart decision!  Chris is the Rector at St. Michael & All Angels and Carrie is a Massage Therapist and the owner of Balanced Bodywork .  These sweet, fun loving, career oriented ladies are a perfect match and it was an honor to photograph their wedding. They set a true example of what it means to love and to marry. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!  xoxo ~

Below are a few of my favorites from their wedding day at Bridal Veil Lakes.

-Hi Parents-

Saturday, Sunday & Team galleries are now online!!

I’ve created a little sneak peek below so that you can see what the images will look like when retouched.  They’re beautiful!  The Monday & Tuesday pictures will be up in just a few days, so check back!

Thank you ALL for signing your talented gymnasts up – it was such a pleasure to be able to capture their love for an amazing sport!  If you didn’t know, I was a competitive gymnast myself and a coach for over 22 years.  I grab every opportunity I can to be in the gym working with children: helping with goal setting, increasing their confidence & self esteem, and documenting their hard work & dedication!  I commend you ALL for having your kids so cute and  picture ready, and for taking the time to be at the gym on the weekend :)  Your hard work paid off – their pictures are AWESOME!!!
