ooh look sparkly!

While cleaning up the wedding website recently I came across some of my all time favorite ring shots.

I don’t know why but I just LOVE shooting the rings, they are so sentimental, so symbolic, so…. sparkly!

So I thought I would show off some of my favorite ring shots of 2008!

Not a complete list by any means, just a few that stuck out.







Have a lovely weekend everyone!

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!

Celebrating my new wedding website with a special!

I am so excited to announce that I just launched my brand new wedding website!


www.emilygphotography.com/weddings is now the home to all things weddings.

I have separated my wedding and portrait work on two different websites, I am so excited. This has been a long time coming, it is so nice to have it all up. If you go to the main page you can now pick between Weddings, Life, Blog & Shopping. Lots of stuff to look at. On the new site (that has been live in beta form for about a week if you are sneaky) you can now find complete weddings, some of my all time favorite images, style and all sorts of additional information about my wedding work. I have also done some updating of my Life/Portrait site so check it out!

Here is what the new splash page looks like:


To celebrate my new wedding site the first couple to book with me for 2009 that references this blog post gets a $100 off their wedding collection! I know lots of couples are in wedding planning mode right now, my phone has been ringing. And remember there is also a special bonus for any previous clients that refers a couple to me! I am so excited for wedding season 2009, so many fun couples have booked already, and I am sure more to come.

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.
