When I first met with Sarah about her wedding she brought with her a binder over flowing with amazing wedding ideas. Some brides have big ideas but slim it down to a manageable amount. Not our Sarah, she put together a wedding packed full of beautiful moments, amazing decor, and a killer fun vibe. She pulled off every thing she dreamed up, and with style! It really was my pleasure to capture this intensely fun and glamorous event. Who knew she could out do our fun engagement session not to long ago, but girlfriend blew it out of the park! She also looked amazing in both (yes both!) of her stunning dresses. The venue, the details, the magical moments, it was all just perfect. And above all that, we had two people deliciously, and madly in love. Nights like that make my job the best ever.

Here are some of the vendors that made the magic possible:

Venue: Hotel DeLuxe

Coordination: Bash Events

Food: Gracies

Floral & Design: Blum Floral

Cake & Cookies: Le Cookie Monkey

Paper Products: Maid of Honor

Photo Booth Fun: Original Photo Booth

Pedi Cab: Portland Pedicabs



Now on to the photos!

Sarah & Drew thanks again for trusting me to capture your amazing day. It was really my pleasure, we had a wonderful time! I so enjoyed getting to know all of your friends and family as well. I hope you had a wonderful honeymoon! Enjoy your sneak peek , the whole gallery will be up very soon. Friends & Family if you would like to see the whole gallery when it is ready please leave a comment below and I will send you the link when it’s time.

    Sarah - You know I love them! Can’t wait to see them all!
    You are the best, Miss Emily! Thank you!


Remember the sun? You know that thing that came out in the day and warmed us all up? Yeah, I remember that. Don’t get me wrong I love the lush green thing we having going on in Oregon, due to the massive rainfall. But sometimes, when I am editing a session from just a few weeks ago with delicious warm rays of sun I miss it a bit. *Sign*

This particular session I want to show off is from just one of those days. I met Brandin and her darling hubby Westly in one of my favorite state parks a few weeks back. She wanted to capture the current state of her beautiful belly, and I was happy to oblige. She is such a stunning pregnant mama! I also know for a fact that the babies in her family tend to be super adorable (check out her nephews here & here). We had a great time chatting about southern weddings, babies and cousins.

Here are a few of my favorites so far…

Brandin & Wes thanks again for meeting me out in the park, and for your flexibility. I am so happy we lucked into such a pretty late fall day to capture this special session. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek! I will have the whole set done shortly!

When I am not capturing fun weddings & beautiful babies I sometimes take on commercial & head shot clients. I tend to work best with creative types, and have some great sessions in the past you can check out here if you like. One of my most recent sessions was with a wonderful former wedding client. You might remember  Sarah & Mary’s wedding at the Rose Garden & Zoo just over 2 years ago. I had so much fun working with these ladies, it was my pleasure to capture Sarah again in her most recent business pursuit. Sarah is a musical therapist specializing in special needs kids. I am in awe of the work she does, and the  love she has for her clients. We got together recently to do some promo shots for her business Notable Connections.We did some of just her for her new site, along with a few inducing a cute little client. It was fun to capture her at work. 🙂

Here are a few of my favorites.


Sarah thanks for hiring me to capture this next chapter in your life. It was a pleasure to work with you again, and I wish you nothing but success in your business!

    Kathy - This is absolutely beautiful!

    So well done!


In my life time as a wedding photographer I have not done many wedding shows, just a handful. Lucky for me most have been a wonderful experience. I have enjoyed meeting new people, and setting displays covered with happy in love faces. I thought I was done for the year, but then recently I was asked to take part in a brand new show. “Say I Do for Us Too” is an amazing show happening in just a few short week. The show is specifically for LGBTQ couples planning  wedding in the NW, and actually a fund raster for Proposition 74 (the marriage equality act) in Washington State. I am honored to not only be taking part in the show, but be the main photography sponsor.


You can read more about the show on their site here. It is Sunday November 4th at the Vancouver Wa Hilton. It should be a really fun time, with some great vendors involved. I am really looking forward to it! If you want to come let me know and I will see if I can get any discounted tickets. 🙂
