Delaney & Nick, like so many amazing couples that planned big wedding celebrations this year, had to rethink plans. These two planned the most incredible, beautiful and intimate wedding celebration in Oregon’s wine country. They rented a gorgeous house through Air B&B, had both their parents & their siblings be a part of their ceremony and wedding. They had two incredible chef’s from Spatzle & Speck come to the home and make them delicious meals throughout the night. Delaney and Nick wanted to hold the tradition of not seeing each other before their ceremony – and each got ready with their families on different sides of the house. Their wedding vows to each other were so heartfelt and emotional – it was such a meaningful ceremony. Delaney’s Dad officiated it, and they had their siblings come up and share words, too. They had their family toss pom poms on them for their first kiss & it was the best!! Don’t miss those photos below. They also had it live streamed on Zoom for all other family and their friends to be a part of their ceremony, too. It was truly a joyful celebration! The night was filled with such sweet, funny and emotional toasts, lots of laughter and fun during photos and all the moments in-between. Their wedding table centerpiece decorations were so pretty – they had sweet calligraphy name settings and gorgeous flowers. The house had an awesome pit and cafe lights hung over their outdoor dinner table, which sealed the beautiful and intimate ambiance. I’m so happy for these two and their families!

Stephanie and Andrew are two of the kindest people and I feel so lucky to know them and have photographed their elopement in the Columbia Gorge. Earlier this year, the day before the lock down was imposed, we did engagement photos at the beautiful cherry blossoms on the waterfront downtown. Back in early spring, we still didn’t know how things would change later this year, and Stephanie & Andrew had plans to get married back in their home state across the country. Fast forward all the months, and they knew it wouldn’t be possible to fly home and have their big wedding. Since plans changed, and it only made sense to get married in Oregon, they wanted to showcase one of the most gorgeous spots in Oregon for their wedding elopement to share with family and friends back home. They invited a few of their closest Portland friends, where we all met up in the breathtaking Columbia Gorge. Their vows were so heartfelt, each of their friends shared meaningful words & quotes, champagne was popped and the celebrations continued on through the night at Thunder Island Brewing. I’m so happy for these two!

Leah and Drew are some of the kindest and most loving people. Covid came, but nothing was going to stop Leah and Drew from getting married this year at Faith Hope & Charity Vineyard! Though, throughout the whole new planning process, their friends and family and their safety was central to it all! Faith Hope & Charity Vineyards was the perfect place to get married – the property is so big and beautiful, with so much space to spread out and be safe. The day was filled with so much joy, love and laughter. I’ve seen a lot of fun and sneaky ways brides and grooms have gotten their guests iced, but Leah sneaking a Smirnoff Ice in her dress right before Drew was to get her garter was one of the best things I’ve seen! We had magical light at Faith Hope & Charity Vineyard at sunset, and a beautiful sunset just as the dance floor was kicking off. Leah and Drew rocked that dance floor all night! I’m so happy for these two!

Regan & Rob had a beautiful elopement wedding at The Allison Inn & Spa. They had originally planned their wedding in North Carolina, where they live, but because of the coronavirus, they had to postpone their big celebration. They are both really into wine and wineries. Rob and his sister decided to plan a sweet elopement to take some planning responsiblities off Regan, since she had already done so much work for their original big wedding. Rob’s sister lives in Seattle, and they all decided to come down to Oregon’s wine country for a little vacation and made amazing plans for Rob and Regan to elope! It was such a beautiful day in wine country, Rob and Regan’s vows were so heartfelt and emotional. We walked around the gorgeous property around The Allison for awesome vineyard bride and groom photos. I’m so happy for these two and loved documenting this wonderful elopement! All the gorgeous florals by Bella Blooms.

Who doesn’t love a good end of the year post mid year? I have a whole line of excuses on being half a year late to posting this, but here we are. Some of my very favorite engagement photos from last year all wrapped up in this post. I know engagements are still happening this year, even through the pandemic and Black Lives Matter movement – love is still all around. I’m shooting a surprise proposal coming up in the next week and I can’t wait. Here are some engagement photos from the Oregon Coast to the Columbia River Gorge, to sweet urban spots in the city and the urban forest. Some of my very favorite spots with some amazing people I feel so lucky to know and document their lives and love.

Arti & John planned the most meaningful wedding day at Castaway Portland. They had a lot of family coming in from out of town, and they wanted a space that allowed them to have both indoor and outdoor components and have with a good Portland vibe. They kept the decor and color palette timeless and romantic. Their family style dinner showcased south Asian flavors and spices while still being familiar and accessible to all their guests. At the end of the night, they had Pips Donuts serving chai and donuts – sharing a little slice of some of their favorite things in Portland with their guests. Arti’s family is part of a religious minority of Hindus originally from Afghanistan. Their ceremony included a beautiful mix of Hindu wedding traditions and Western traditions. Their wedding kicked off with a baraat, the groom’s procession/parade. John rode on a bicycle pedicab – instead of a horse – total Portland style! DJ Adi made a custom playlist for the baraat and played the dhol (drum) as all their guests danced around Castaway Portland on the streets with the Portland bridges in the background – the energy was at an all time high! Arti wore a bridal lehenga for the wedding ceremony in a more modern color (pink instead of red). And for the reception, she changed into a gorgeous white dress made in India and intricately hand-embroidered. It was the perfect mix of both Indian and American style! The day was filled with such beautiful emotions!

Photographing people is such a beautiful and intimate thing and most times, my clients feel like family. I build such closeness with my clients as they let me document their lives. Though this wedding was family! This was my beautiful sister’s wedding at Ruth Bancroft Garden. It was such a meaningful day! They had a gorgeous Persian ceremony in the middle of the succulent garden surrounded by all their family and friends, filled with laughter and happy tears. Swift Fox Photography and I photographed this wedding together and it was so fun to both photograph and also be part of my sister’s wedding. The sunset glow at Ruth Bancroft Garden is incredible and we got the sweetest sunset photos. This wedding will always hold such wonderful memories for me!

Amber and Patrick’s backyard garden wedding in the West Hills was what dreams are made of! They had an intimate ceremony and reception in Patrick’s parents backyard with close friends and family, and the next day had a big party reception at Irving Street Studio – those photos to come soon. It was a perfect summer day with the most gorgeous wedding details. Long farm tables lined with colorful floral arrangements, personalized geode slices labeled with everyone’s name, napkins tied with a loose knot & a sprig of greenery was tucked under the geode for a sweet touch. Guests were greeted on Friday with an aperol spritz, Amber’s favorite cocktail, and dinner included Paella and a delicious flourless chocolate cake. Amber always dreamed of a small, intimate wedding outdoors and insisted that she would not wear shoes when she said “I do.” On the other hand, for Patrick, growing up in a large Irish, Catholic family meant Patrick would get to have all his siblings, cousins and extended family there to partake in the merriment. Patrick’s parents backyard boasted a beautiful, three-tiered garden that was perfect for the laid-back, garden party that they were hoping for. The two were officially married three weeks prior to their scheduled wedding date in a private ceremony at the Hospice House in Bend, OR where Amber’s mother passed away. The nurses at the facility planned everything for Amber, Patrick and their families, bringing in flowers and even setting up food for everyone afterwards. The memory of this special day and Amber’s Mom reverberated throughout the entire wedding weekend. A photo of Amber with both of her parents was displayed at both the ceremony and reception, and one of her mom’s favorite rings was Amber’s “something blue.” The Oregon Coast being Amber’s favorite place, Patrick surprised her when they took a weekend trip to Newport and he proposed at Yaquina State Park. They then returned to one of their first date spots, a “secret” beach just north of Cannon Beach, to take their engagement photos.

The Columbia Gorge is one of the most beautiful places and we are so lucky to live so close to it. For Brianna & Tyler’s engagement session, we ventured over on a sunny winter day to the Gorge and captured their sweet love. They even brought their beautiful dog, who debuted at the end of our session & it was so fun. I’m so excited for their wedding this fall – Morgan with MH Events Pdx is going to help rock their wedding!

Joy, excitement, tears of both happiness & laughter, and all the beauty of weddings. Looking back on the year through weddings I’ve photographed fills me with such happiness. Thank you to all my amazing couples that have me photograph your wedding – it’s always such a great honor and I love the connection we build. From out in the Columbia Gorge at Mt Hood Organic Farms to urban downtown vibes of the Sentinel and The Evergreen to wine country at Beacon Hill Winery and Maysara and all the other gorgeous venues in-between, there’s so much beauty at each unique venue.
