Portland Oregon Wedding Photographer {Laura & Michael sneak peek #1}

Once again I could not possibly combine all the photos I want to show off from Laura & Michel’s winter wedding into one blog post.  I peeked one quick one already here.  I had an amazing time with these two, and I think the photos show it! Laura & Michael got married in literally the biggest snow storm of the last 40 years. When I talked to the lovely bride the day of the wedding I thought for sure she was going to cancel but she was not only still game, but excited about shooting in the snow! I was excited to say the least. Or as Michael would say I was not “weak sauce” by making the big day.

Here are a few of my favorite from the first part of the big day:


Laura our beautiful bride


I loved the detail on her dress!


Michael our dashing groom.


so lovely together! and so daring in all that snow!


Have I mentioned how awesome they are for heading out in their full gear in the snow?


I always get the “wedding shoes” but these were too great not to capture.


see I was not the only one cracking up the whole time, I just adore these two.


See what I mean, that was one long post and we have not even gotten to the actual wedding yet! Another post soon to come. We are just thawing out here and I am catching up all around. I just had to show you some of these. I will be posting the ceremony and reception bits soon. Please leave a comment on this post if you want to see the whole gallery when it is ready.

Laura and Michael thanks again for being up for anything! I wish you nothing but the best, more to come!

Newberg Family & Wedding Photography {Laura & Michael Sneak Peek}

Not too long ago I was contacted by a local couple about shooting their Christmas time wedding. I don’t usually book anything around the holidays but I agreed to meet with them since they were literally right down the road. I am so glad I did. Laura & Micheal are so sweet, and their whole family is adorable. It also helped that when I walked into their home it was covered with beautiful family photos. When people are big photography fans to begin with, you know it is going to be fun working with them!

This last weekend we meet up for a joint engagement & family session. I had a blast meeting all the kids and seeing them together. Even the grumpiest teen was smiling by the end of the morning. :)

Here are a few of my favorites so far:


The whole family, I can not wait for the wedding it is going to be fun.


( I am pretty sure I can hear the kids saying “Ewww Gross” right about now, but how cute are they!)



Speaking of sweet, how sweet are these two. These soon to be step brothers made me smile.


Ok there is a funny story behind this one. Laura brought this cute hat for the baby of the family to wear. Typical little guy style he was not into the hat at all. But one of the older kids jokingly put it on, and we ended up getting every single family member in it except the one it was intended for. ;) I know I am easily amused but this cracks me up.


And here is the little guy. This special little boy really stole my heart.


Our soon to be bride & groom again.

Laura & Michael, I am really looking forward to your big day. Your whole family was an absolute joy to hang out with. Thanks for bearing the cold morning with me. I will have more from our morning session for you very soon!

Micah & Micah Love on Hawthorne {Engagment Photos Portland Oregon}

She is a soon to be school teacher

He is an architect

Together they are nothing short of adorable.

I met up with this fun couple on Hawthorne over the weekend to do some engagement photos. We had a good time walking around the area and finding cool buildings to use. I love SE Hawthorne, there are endless possibilities, every time I shoot there I find something new. Micah & Micah humored me with my crazy ideas. I will be shooting their wedding this summer and I can not wait! From all the reports I am getting it should be a beautiful affair.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

These two have been together since high school, how sweet is that.

And this crazy blue green wall, I had to tone it down a TON. Talk about bright whew. I loved all the fall tones we had going on that day.

The soon to be Mr. & Mrs.

How perfect is this wall mural! I have so many fun variations of this shot. It was just too perfect.

I loved the super tall window here. I think this one would look great printed large.

M & M thanks for traipsing around Hawthorne with me! I can not wait till your wedding, it is going to be beautiful. I should have this whole set ready for you with in a few weeks. I wanted wanted to post a bit of a teaser for you. And also because it is the season I would love to gift you a large print for your home. Let say if you can get 30 comments on this post I will throw in an 11×14 wall print on me .  Remember you can always post links to your myspace, and facebook accounts!

So get commenting people!

a nurse and a fire fighter get married…

Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke right? No joke here, just the results of  a wicked fun wedding. I had the pleasure of working with the super talented and over the top fun Kacy Jo for this one. I know I have said it before, but working with other photographers is always fun for me. There are a million ways to shoot a wedding, and it is always fun to see other photographers in their “zone”. Kacy is a riot, and this particular couple Marie & Jeff had us on our toes and laughing all day.

Ok I will stop talking, look here are a few (too many!) of my favorites from the day.

It was crazy hot that day, but they made it work. I love Marie’s expressions here, she cracked me up.

Check out that dip! Jeff & Marie did this great choreographed first dance, it was so cool!

And of course the “father daughter dance” had me tearing up, I am such a sap for that stuff. These two are super close so I know it was an important moment for them, and Dad can dance!

Jeff & Marie also did this great dance to honor all the couples who had been married for many years. The couple who had been married the longest went home with a lovely gift, it was very sweet.

And anyone who has ever read this blog before knows I am a sucker for cute kids dancing at receptions. This one had no shortage of cute little ones. And these boys and girls had some mad dance skills. I was impressed!

And the “small girl with the big camera” herself ms Kacy Jo. Thanks for asking me to come help out! I had a great time even in the crazy hot weather.
