love all the way around

Aimee contacted me just a few months back inquiring about wedding photography. I happily sent her my information packet and went along my merry way. When just a few short weeks ago she emailed again saying she was getting married and wanted to meet & book me I have to say I was a little excited. While I adore getting to know my wonderful clients over long periods of time, it is also very exciting to get a last moment booking! It pumps the adrenaline and gets you started for the mad dash of learning as much as you can about the couple & event before the big day. We are still just a couple weeks off from the big wedding, but this last weekend I met up with Aimee, Dan and Aimee’s adorable little boy for an engagement/family combo session.

I loved taking them to the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge and capturing some fun images of this adorable couple and little family. The way Dan & Aimee look at each other is adorable, but the way they both look little dude is just heart melting.:)I can not wait to capture images of their big day! But for now here is a sneak peek of our session along the river.


check out “E” such a little charmer, he is 5 and full of energy!


Yep these three have lots of fun together!

Aimee & Dan are also incredibly sweet on their own.


The way Dan looks at his beautiful future wife is pretty darn sweet.


And the opposite side of that is I got the best smiles out of Aimee when she was looking at her man.

So looking at these two cute love birds you might be wondering, where is the little man during all this smooching?


Mr. E made a little furry friend! I love the smile on his face, he was o into the little fuzzy guy.




This one might be my favorite of our lovely couple. I love Aimee’s huge smile, you can not help but smile back!


Another adorable smile belongs to this silly boy. Such a ham!


One last set of the lovely couple.


And one last one of the cute little family.

Aimee & Dan I am so looking forward to your big day in just a few short weeks! I am excited about all the rad details you have planned, but mostly about seeing you three again. I had a wonderful time with you guys, little Mr. E charmed my socks off, such a great kiddo. I hope you enjoy your little sneak peek. I will have the whole gallery up for you very soon. And of course as new clients I have to hook up the comment challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in a 11×14 on me of your favorite from the set! So leave some love people!

Dan once said to me “Aimie is the best thing that has ever happened to me” I’ve heard that expression before, but this was the first time it wasn’t “just” an expression! Very nice pic’s, no posers here.
