Sarah and Nick are awesome, it is just that simple. They are fun, funny, creative and even make great beer. It is kind of ridicules how much I adore these two! Just a few weeks back I had the pleasure of capturing their big day. The event was held at the Acadian Ballroom in NE Portland. We lucked into some beautifully clear weather. It was cold, but no rain or snow, for Oregon that is huge! The day was great, we had lots of fun running around the neighborhood, finding local art for photo backdrops and lots of laughs. It seemed like every single person at the wedding had a great time. I know I had fun capturing it all.  Big thanks to the one and only Bryan Rupp for being my second shooter and all around right hand man. Some of the images you see below were captured by him.

I could talk all day about this wedding, but on to the photos! Here are a few of my very favorite, and then a bigger slide show.

Sarah & Nick thanks again for having me out to be a part of your wedding. I truly adore you two and wishing you lots and lots of joy in your life together. I will have your whole gallery up very soon. Friends and family hey, if you want access to the whole gallery too please leave a comment below!

(clearly I started this post on new years, got side tracked, and never posted it. I thought I should now before we get too far into 2011!)

There are no words to say how wonderful this year has been. I have met so many amazing clients & new friends. I have witnessed some amazing weddings, newborns, babies, families, beautiful ladies and even a birth! And well most personally important our little family has grown to include my darling son. All in all it has been an amazing yeah personally and professionally. I want to thank you all for supporting me and my love for this whole photo taking thing.

Here are a few (ha, like I could choose just a few) from the amazing 2010!

(one of the few cell phone photos you will ever see here, but an important image none the less.:)

Whew that was allot! Kudos to you if you made it the whole way through! Thanks again for making 2010 so amazing, 2011 has already been pretty great as well!  Here is to another amazing year!

    Lilly - Hey – we made the cut! But I think that one of the four sets of bare feet in (and above) the sand was my all time fave. OK, the bad-ass girl with the light saber is pretty darn cute. All of it is lovely work though, as usual.
