carly + mischa // married | cooper spur mountain resort {oregon wedding photography}

Carly and Mischa's wedding was like a burst of sunshine in every way. The bright primary colors of the bridal party, details and florals added such exuberance to the gorgeous rustic wooden scenery of Cooper Spur. Everywhere I looked, sun, trees, lavender, and the majesty of Mt Hood, and the beaming faces of everyone present. A kazoo rendition of "Lean on Me", a fun "how well do you know them" game, and oh my gosh the toasts. I'll never forget the beautiful, heartfelt, and hilarious stories that were told and I'm sure no one else will either. 

what a celebration. i'm so thankful i got to be there to document this wonderful day, and so very happy for Mischa and Carly and their loved ones!!

katie + ashley // married | cedarville lodge {portland wedding photography}

Katie and Ashley were married this past spring in the most beautiful ceremony at Saint David of Wales Episcopal Church. It was such a joy to photograph them together in the trees at Cedarville Lodge before joining their cozy reception - lit with candles and filled with their family and friends. Great food, sweet toasts, dancing, and an awesome paper-airplane exit capped off their day!
