worth the wait: the sneak peek of Emily & Stephen

Emily & Stephen are fabulous in every way. They are sweet, kind, welcoming, adorable, and wickedly funny. They also put on an amazing wedding. I really could make this the longest post in the world with all the details of their wedding, they had a lego cake topper, need I say more?! But the reception details will have to wait. For now I want to share the first part of their day, we had SO much fun tromping around McMinnamin’s Kennedy School in NE Portland.

We laughed, we smooched (ok they smooched) and we took some fun photos.

I hope it is worth the wait guys!


Emily’s dress & details were so fun. I loved the vintage flair to it all!


Stephen is so ridiculously fun. In case you can not read the upper right hand pic, that would read “Steve + Emily + Mr. T”


Emily’s girls took great care of her. Her hair & make up were impeccable. 🙂


Emily & Stephen were so cute together. You can tell all the anticipation was worth it. I love everything about them together, even down to the crinkled noses!


The Kennedy School had some great locations in side and out. 🙂




the cuteness.


This crazy pipe stairway might be my favorite of all locations.


The whole wedding party was absolutely wonderful.


Gah these two are so cute together! I just loved everything about their day.


The girls were always laughing and keeping Emily smiling. So much fun to shoot.


And of course with this venue I just had to do some funky vintage treatments. These kind of echoed some of the old photos on the walls.


Much much more to come folks, I mean there was a Lego cake topper, how can in not blog that. Much more soon. Em & Steve, thanks again so much for having me be a part of your day. I had a wonderful time capturing your amazing day. As always friends & family if you are reading this and you want notification of the full gallery being ready please do leave a comment below.
