Sonja contacted me a while back to set up photos with her sweet little boy and family. When she said she found me through a dear friend (and fellow rad wedding photographer) and her super rad former neighbor (Portland’s Reining Radio Diva) I knew we would have fun with this session. We met at the family’s beautiful NE Portland home and played for a while, after a bit we ventured out to a local park. We scored some seriously beautiful weather! We had a great time bouncing around, following the little guy in charge and makeing some photos.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

 

Sonja & Todd thanks again for being up for anything! I hope you like the sneak peek. Thanks for having me out to capture your beautiful family. I had a great time getting to know you all.  As a new client I would love to offer you a little blog challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post I will throw in a darling little wallet brag book. Perfect for showing off a certain adorable family . So leave some love people!

Last week I had the privilege of being a part of  an incredibly fun event.  The Luxe Bridal Event in the Pearl was so fabulous! I don’t normally do bridal fairs, but this was killer. Good food, good people, even cocktails! Not your normal stuffy bridal show. During the downtime before we officially started I took a few moments to snap a few photos of my fellow vendors.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Moi! And one of my best girls and often second photographer Maricar Lianne. Our booth was pretty cool if I do say so my self. Recognize anyone in the mural behind us?

The Party place did all the table & other rentals for the show. Their space was also adorable. Kathy, who did all the pre-planning and on site management of that piece pretty much rocks.

undefined

Check out the lovely Miss Ashley! She is one of the event coordinators of Luxe productions, and did a great job of running the set up of the day. She is also incredibly adorable rocking one of the bridal dresses on hand!

Are you throwing a vintage inspired wedding? Well then you need to call Marigold rentals asap. They do vintage inspired rentals from large furniture to detailed pieces. These girls have some great style too.

Right behind my area was Hotel De Luxe, by far my favorite boutique hotel in Portland. I love shooting there! You can check out some of the times I have shot there here & here actually.

I had the pleasure of sharing a corner with the oh so adorable Jennie of Magnifigue Boutique. Man she has some amazing dresses, and is super sweet.

undefined

Also rocking the show was Ryan of Focal Point Media. Ryan is always fun to work with, and does such an amazing job capturing a wedding day.

undefined

Who is that you ask? Just the always lovely Alice of Mosco photo! Clearly we were all excited about the show.

undefined

Also right next to me was Cupcake Jones, I might have had a few tastings, and YUM!

undefined

Microbrew media was there showing off some amazing invitations and printed products.

Rafati’s catering also did an amazing spread. I am not going to lie sharing an isle with them was Delicious!

    Cherie Ronning - Great photos, so sorry to have had to miss the event. The Magnifique Boutique owner is Jennie – not Haley – and yes she sure is super sweet.

    Loved the look of your booth – very fun and creative, I hope you booked some great brides at the show.

    Best ~ Cherie

    Blaine Thornton - Great photos! Knowing Shawn and Paul personally, I would say some of these photos also capture a bit of their personality, which I really like.
