Courthouse Wedding


Stephanie and Donovan were recently married at the courthouse in downtown Portland. The couple exchanged their vows in front of the presiding judge and their closest friends and family members.

Just prior to their wedding ceremony, we met up at Laurelhurst Park so the couple could have an opportunity to see each other for the first time and have portraits captured together throughout the park. Even though the forecast for the day was primarily rain, it held off during the couple’s first moment and portrait session. As we headed over to the courthouse, the rain began to make it’s presence. Luckily we were inside. Then, after the ceremony concluded, we headed outside to capture portraits with friends and family, and once again, the rain subsided. The timing was perfect.

No matter the location, the style, or the level of complexity, every single wedding is an honor to photograph. It is such an exhilarating experience to participate in such a momentous occasion in a couple’s life and to be the one trusted to document the day.
