You remember the incredibly wonderful and adorable Aimee & Dan from a last month right? Well a few short weeks ago Aimee & Dan tied the knot, and man did they do it in style. I had an absolutely wonderful time capturing every little detail. These two put on a wonderful event! Even when things ran late and we had a little time crunch I had a great time just laughing with them. I also loved meeting many, many wonderful family members & friends. Seriously these people know how to throw a party! The day was also made even more lovely by the addition of my partner in crime/ 2nd shooter for the day the always fantastic Mr. Kip Beelman of Seattle. Some of the images you see below are thanks to his talent & lens! Thanks again Kip for all the help!
We Started in SE Portland at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church, a beautiful building! I hope we did not freak out the father too much by hanging Aimee’s stunning dress on his door!
Aimme was an amazing bride to work with. So beautiful and fun, seriously Aimee you looked amazing.
Dan was also quite the dapper fellow.
see what I mean, dapper right.
And of course our first look was fantastic. While Dan brought the dapper gentleman vibe, miss Aimee brought the va-va voom! I am pretty sure Dan lost his breath for a few moments there seeing his bride all dressed for the first time.
see what I mean, he could not take his eyes off her. I love this set here for a few reasons, you get the beautiful full wide shot and the close up view of the same moment. How we pulled it off is I am out front and Kip is getting all ninja in the greenery to capture the shot on the right. This is one of the many reasons I love having a second shooter along for weddings. It is always nice to have different views of the same day to get a real variety of creative moments.
I just adore Aimee’s smile here.
We also found this amazing orange wall/garage door in the neighborhood. Just too perfect not to use, especially when orange was in the wedding color palette! Too perfect.
they are just so lovely together these two.
check out our entire wedding party here, seriously fun folks!
after portraits we made our way back to the church for the big event.
The chapel was set up beautifully, I loved Aimee’s stunning flower choices. Check out these unique arrangements.
Aimee looked nothing short of amazing walking down the isle.
the ceremony was beautiful and very moving.
I just loved being able to capture all the special moments.
After the ceremony and some family photos we took a short drive to the most fantastic reception venue. A converted warehouse owned by a wonderful family member of Dan’s. Seriously this place was amazing. Every little corner was bubbling with character.
Yeah pretty much amazing right!
Doing more ring shots was so fun, every corner had a classic car or fun antique to incorporate.
Check out Kip the ring shot master at work, and the rad result on the right. 100% Raddness.
Everyone had a wonderful time at the reception, you could tell. Lots of dancing and smiles all around.
We even had some mini pool sharks out and about.
Like I said these folks know how to throw a party, we had a great time roaming around the place snapping away.
and one last set with some of that amazing color the place was popping with. I could not get enough of these vintage cars!
Aimee & Dan thanks again for having me out to capture your big day. I really truely loved spending time with both of your amazing families & fun friends. You all know how to throw a great event!
