Ponzi Vineyard Wedding: Portland Weddings

I love working with the team from Ponzi Vineyards, their impeccable service makes Ponzi Vineyards an ideal wedding venue. And how can you beat those views? I love the geometric lines and variety of backdrops the vineyards present for wedding portraits, I could shoot there for hours! Rachel and Nick hosted their intimate wedding in the Sherwood location, with epic views of the surrounding valley.

As a Portland wedding photographer, I love getting outside the city into the natural beauty of the Oregon wine country. Most of the images above were shot on 35mm, Portra 400 and developed/scanned by Photovision Lab 

Portland Boudoir Mini Sessions

The Wedding Anniversaries are right around the corner which means it's perfect time for a Portland boudoir mini session. Portland Boudoir sessions are based out of our studio in SE Portland, and include up to 4 looks and 10 digital files. It's an hour of relaxed fun in front of my camera with me guiding you every step of the way.

Boudoir photography is intimate portraiture at it's best. Vulnerability, beauty and allure meet and you will walk away with the most beautiful photos of yourself you've ever seen. Our mini sessions sell out every year and are especially popular with our brides (#bestgiftever).

Green Villa Barn and Garden Wedding: Featured on Oregon Bride Magazine

Wow. The Green Villa wedding venue is simply stunning. With a profusion of cultivated gardens, on site gazebo, lush grounds and expansive reception, it is easily the best wedding venue in Independence. Just an hour South of Portland, Green Villa invites guests to explore the grounds, cocktail in hand while watching the sunset filtering through the trees. 

Jeff and Hannah were one of my all-time favorite couples. I guess I see so much of myself in Hannah and felt an instant connection with her from the start. (maybe it's our mutual dislike of burlap... ;P ) Either way, Hannah gave me the trust and freedom I need to do my job to the best of my ability. 

 The morning dawned clear and bright on their Summer wedding, promising a beautiful day. Just an hour South of Portland, Green Villa is a sizeable barn with an expansive garden across the street. Rented separately or as a whole, it is incredibly beautiful. 

 We laughed all day long, and thanks to my second shooter Crecia Page, we rocked it out of the park. You can enjoy this photo story of their day and check out the feature on Oregon Bride while you're at it :)  Rated as one of the TOP TEN REAL WEDDINGS of 2016 by Oregon Bride Magazine.
