There is no other way to say this, I adore Many & Melissa! These two ladies are some of the sweetest, kindest people I have had the pleasure of working with. You might remember their beautiful golden summer’s evening engagement session not too long ago. Well their wedding day was beautiful, filled with love and family. Though the weather was a bit different. Driving up to Stevenson Washington I was a bit worried about the weather, but as luck would have it we ended up shooting portraits during the one dry hour of the day. It was rainy, but the entire day was so full of love you would have never known it with the smiles going around. I had a wonderful time getting to know friends and family, and of course taking some lovely photos of our happy couple. I should also give out a huge thank you to my right hand diva of the day Ms Heather Espana. She took some of the photos you see below.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Mandy & Melssa, thank yo uso much for having us out to be a part of your big day. I had a wonderful time, you two are the sweetest! I hope you like your peek. I will have more very soon!

I love doing engagement sessions, they are always fun and boarder on the silly side. Well some boarder, and some leap head first. A few weeks back I had the pleasure of taking photos of the super adorable Mike & Jodi. Planning their wedding from San Fransisco this was my first opportunity to meet Mike and only my second to meet with Jodi. I wanted some time with these two to get them comfortable with me and my camera before the big day. Especially when that big day was just two days after our session.:)Well clearly we got along just fine, and I got to learn first hand what a goof ball our groom was. Just check out how we started the session…

See, goofball, I love it! We had a great time wandering around downtown Lake Oswego and taking some photos. Here are are a few of my favorites so far:

Mike & Jodi thanks for taking time out of your wedding planning buz to meet with me. I am glad we did. I will have wedding photos up here shortly for you to check out!

While I always love meeting new people, one of the other  best parts of my job is being able to capture special times in friends & loved ones lives. I have know Jaime for a long, long time. It was my honor to capture her wedding not too long ago, then her beautiful belly, then visit her in the hospital when a certain little one arrived. Well of course Mr. Liam the king of cute got his own special photo session. Gah I love the newborns, even if the make me work for it. All of the shushing and rocking paid off, I am really pleased with the photos we came out with.

Here are a few of my favorites:

such a beautiful boy!

those little feet get me every time.

Such an alert boy for only 1 week old too.

His beautiful mama.

Such a smoochable face too.


I love the way Will talks to him too, you can tell these two are going to be close.

The whole family.

Clearly there is no shortage of love here.

Liam welcome to the world, I can not wait to see you grow up. Pretty soon I am sure you and my Giffin will be wrestling and running around the house. I can’t wait!

I have to admit I have been looking forward to Monica & Jordon’s wedding for quite some time now. The Bride & Groom are two of the most hilarious people I know, the venue was amazing, the Uber Talented wedding coordinator Misty is always on her game, the DJ of the evening is always fantastic, one of Oregon’s best video companies would be there, and to top if all off the best caterer in town would be there.  Paige from Vibrant Table also did the amazing flowers. I knew this event was going to be killer, and I was not disappointed. Monica & Jordon put on an amazing event, it was my pleasure to capture it all with my camera.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Monica & Jordon thanks again for having me out to capture your big day. You two are fantastic! I loved meeting all of your friends and family. Everyone was wonderful. I hope you like the sneak peek. I will have the whole gallery done very soon. If you are a friend or family member reading this, please leave a comment below if you would like access to the whole gallery when it is ready.
