Aerie at Eagle Landing Wedding: Christine + Alexander

The Aerie is a beautiful wedding venue in the heights of Mt Scott area. This Portland wedding venue is a showstopper and offers guests a respite from the bustle of the city.  Alexander and Christine invited their closest friends and family to join them for a beautiful outdoor ceremony and with happy tears vowed to be husband and wife. 

  If there was one word that comes to mind when I think of these two, it's passion. They live life with such passionate intensity, every aspect of their life is touched by their radiating commitment. Anyone who comes within arms length will sense the incredible chemistry these two share. As shared at the reception, "I've never seen someone look at a woman the way Alexander looks at Christine". May it forever remain so. :)

A+ C- It has been such a privilege to walk this journey the last 12 months through their engagement, wedding planning and finally the anticipated celebration. Below is my behind the scenes perspective on your wedding, candid's and laughter included :D

Lacey Washington Wedding: Katie + Richard

Lacey Washington is a breezy suburb just outside of the Olympia/Tacoma area. It was an easy drive for us Portland wedding photographers and truly a privilege to be included in this special event. 

 After a private ceremony we slipped over to Woodland Creek Community Park for photos before heading to the roller rink for a celebratory reception. 

Richard and Katie typified their entire wedding, playful, relaxed and romantic. The perfect mood for this May wedding! 

We ended the night by enjoying golden hour photos in a nearby field, adjacent to the skating rink. The light was beautiful and the perfect ending to this Lacey Washington wedding. :D

Portland Portrait Photographer: Yanah + Piper

In between weddings, commercial projects and boudoir sessions I have had the privilege of capturing numerous portraits of some truly amazing women. 

  Piper is an aspiring model who came to me looking for a model portfolio. Yanah, on the other hand, is a professional photographer from Hawaii looking to get some portraits for her business page and website. Two totally different needs, but the end product is the same--> beautiful photos!  

Portland portrait photography is a competitive world and I'm so glad these special women found me, I feel so honored to work on these projects.
