Fort Vancouver, Washington was a fun setting for this recent shoot. Engagement sessions often lead us downtown or to one of the many popular Portland parks, so it’s nice to take clients to places that are a little different. We are looking forward to shooting at many more new locations in this upcoming wedding season!

We mentioned before that Adam and Katie’s stunning wedding last summer was held in what was probably our most favorite venue of the year…except that it wasn’t actually a venue; it was Katie’s parents’ forested backyard that they transformed into a wedding wonderland. The peach-colored curtain they extended between two trees made a lovely backdrop […]
It was hard to narrow down our most favorite images from Jessikah & Luke’s wedding in Forest Grove, but this was definitely one of them. I cannot remember what was so funny at this point in the ceremony, but clearly, genuine smiles from this bride and groom were not lacking that day. To see more […]
Hannah and Wouter looked happy and in love as they made their way to the exit after saying ‘I Do’. This was a beautiful winter wedding held at the Sentinel Hotel in Portland. To see more images like these, visit Hannah and Wouter’s sneak peek album on Facebook.
We previously posted about a beautiful wedding we shot at Belle Fiore Winery in Ashland over the summer. A nearby forest fire was causing smoke to slowly fill the sky, the one positive side being that it made some beautiful sunlight in the evening. We paused for a moment to capture this lovely bride in […]
Little behind-the-scenes moments like these make lovely, memorable wedding images. Before Felicia and Genaro’s ceremony at the Ace Hotel, the couple worked on finishing touches upstairs. As we were headed downstairs with the soon-to-be newlyweds, Felicia stopped to help Genaro pin on his boutonnière. There happened to be a window behind them creating a soft, […]
We posted a few photos previously from Catherine and Peter’s wedding on New Year’s Even in Sacramento. Here is a another view, this time in the daylight, from the balcony of the Citizen Hotel. It was late evening, warm, and with that soft winter sunlight beaming through the skyline. To see more photos from this […]
We make it a point at every wedding to shoot from as many angles and as many focal lengths as possible to produce a wide variety of imagery. We love the gazebo at the Abernethy Center – it is a beautiful space to make photos like this during the ceremony. We held a fisheye lens […]
We’ve probably said it before: we love father and daughter pictures. This one, in particular, was one of our favorites from 2015. Christa and her dad walked candidly down the aisle, laughing with each other every step of the way, and then we caught them in this little pocket of sunlight. To see more images […]
Janelle and Garret’s wedding at the Abernethy Center in Oregon City was all kinds of fun. One of our favorite moments of the reception was one everyone joined in on the dance floor and pulled out these foam glow sticks. At the end of the night, all of their guests formed lines to make an […]
