sondra + casey // married | crystal ballroom {portland wedding photography}

one more blog before i head to los angeles to photograph one of my sweet 2017 couples for their engagement session! (side note, i am writing this at 445am, after my dearest child decided 230am was the time we should wake up for our 7am flight...send coffee)

Sondra and Casey's wedding was one of my favorites ever, for many many reasons. First and foremost these two are warm and inspiring, kindred spirits. Their fantastic day was deeply heartfelt, unique and quirky, and so very meaningful. And they sure know how to throw a party! I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking. 

Big thanks as always to my wonderful second shooter, Sarah Valentine - some of her beautiful work is mixed in below.

jess + justin // married | hug point {oregon wedding photography}

Jess and Justin were married under a brilliant blue sky surrounded by sand and sea and loved ones. It just so happened that there was a tourist playing his ukelele near where the ceremony was to be, and he agreed to play for them. It was a beautiful and serendipitous addition to the wedding! xo

liz + bill // married {oregon/washington wedding photography}

a burst of sunshine on this icy day - i'm so happy to share Liz & Bill's wonderful wedding. they married under the apple trees at a family property near Stevenson, Washington. it was so beautiful to see the love poured into their celebration by friends and family in attendance - cooking, eating, playing games, toasting, making music, and dancing. as the sun went down and it got a little chillier, guests sang huddled under the lights in the apple trees. i left them still singing together, heart full, humming "wagon wheel" as i drove away.
