Alicia and Jeffery’s wedding was held at The RiverPlace Hotel in Portland. After the ceremony, we took a walk along the river bank and down one of the docks. Completely unplanned, a large group of rowers on the dock raised their paddles and created an archway for our newlyweds to walk through, cheering them on. […]

It is hard to beat a sunset at Postlewait’s. Sarah and Juamaine’s vintage/country wedding produced many great images, this being one of our favorites. We’ve shot at this venue before and knew that, as we approached sunset, we’d need to sneak the newlyweds away on a walk to make a few portraits. To see more […]
