james + janessa // married | urban studio {portland wedding photography}

when your friend finds the love of his life, and she's completely amazing in every way... being a part of this wedding was SO special for me. James and Janessa are such thoughtful friends and complement each other so beautifully.

photography-wise, i was pretty much in heaven with this stunning bride and groom; two spectacular dresses; bridal party in classy all-black; everyone getting ready in a light-filled condo with a great view; all that winter light, ahh i could have wandered around downtown Portland all day with them! Urban Studio felt cozy and intimate - filled with candles, hanging lights, beautiful florals, and geometric details highlighted with gold and glittery table numbers. Janessa's father and her grandfather made the most awesome arch for the ceremony, and it made a stunning focal point for the dessert table during the reception. it was a magical night!

i am indescribably happy for these two and cannot wait to see how their life together unfolds!!
