gabby + alec // engaged {portland engagement photography}

Gabby and Alec's session was so perfect for them - we spent the time on their boat, exploring the river and their neighborhood of floating homes. gold light, beautiful couple, and the most beautiful sunset... such a fun, laid back evening. seriously can't wait for their wedding this summer!

dominique + alicia // married | lumos wine co {oregon wedding photography}

i've known Dominique and his family for a long time now but didn't get a chance to meet Alicia until i arrived in los angeles to shoot their engagement session - though it turns out we went to the same synagogue as kids in Corvallis, it is the smallest world - and i adored her right away!! they are such a beautiful couple and so much fun to hang out with and i just knew their wedding would be all kinds of amazing. Dom's family's gorgeous vineyard, Lumos Wine Company, was the most perfect setting. stunning florals, ice pops for the ceremony, tearful and heartfelt vows, a camper van photo booth, and of course, unbelievable food - Dominique is an *awesome* chef (if you are in LA, go visit him at L&E Oyster Bar) and i would have expected nothing less! also also check out the exquisite confection of a cake that Leslie (the groom's mom) made, complete with sugared flowers.

"heartbeats" played when Ali walked down the aisle... it happens to be one of my favorite songs, and it really speaks for the day better than i can. 

meli + ryan // married | noti {oregon wedding photography}

Meli and Ryan's wedding was so special! They were married under the very same cedar tree that Meli's parents said their vows beneath 34 years ago. It was colorful, cozy, and intimate. I loved the sweet details that Meli put together! The joy was absolutely palpable. I'm so happy for these two.
