Jenny and I started chatting about her wedding last year before my maternity leave. We made plans to meet and it ended up being just the two of us talking weddings over truffle french fries. One of my favorite ways to get to know people. Jenny talked about her wedding, family, how she and Matt met. I was completely enchanted. The only piece missing was meeting this specific price charming, you see he was out of town on business and could not make the meeting. So this past week, on a beautiful evening in North West Portland I met up with Jenny and Matt to do some engagement photos. These two are so charming together, it was my pleasure to capture them as a couple in one of their favorite Portland spots.
Here are a few of my favorites so far:
See how lovely they are!
Miss Jenny actually ran/biked/swam an iron man competition just 2 days before out session, impressive right!
The rose gardens have some beautiful paths and old brick work around.
I just love this grand staircase. I do believe there it was Matt’s job to make Jenny laugh, and he did all evening.
The light that evening was beautiful, almost as lovely as our couple.
The way he looks at her here is super sweet.
After a bit at the Rose gardens we headed down to the PGE park area to catch some city backdrops.
I loved the way the light was coming through the city here. This might be my favorite set.
We also had to use some of the on site sculptures, again I love playing with the light when i have a beautiful couple to work with.
PGE park was super quite that night so we got to roam the front where ever we liked, I loved this ivy covered wall near the front.
Jenny & Matt both have great smiles, it is almost too easy.
And one last photo before the light left us.
Jenny and Matt thanks for meeting up with me and being up for anything! I am so looking forward to capturing your wedding in just a few short weeks time!
