David and Taylor, Intimate Vow Renewal, Portland Lan Su Chinese Garden

This morning I was honored to capture a very personal ceremony for David and Taylor, along with their family. An extremely kind and beautiful couple, David and Taylor wanted to bring their family together for a private ceremony and photographs to remember forever. I was so touched today, not only by their personally created vows, but by the gentleness and carefulness they show to one another. Thank you both for choosing me to document this day in your life. I wish you success and happiness – actually, double happiness. 🙂 I hope to see you again soon for the next big moments in your journey!

Maxwell and Crystal, Meet the Coles, The Ballroom at Church Street

I was so excited to capture wedding memories in Florida for a very sweet, talented and genuine couple. Max and Crystal have been together for eight years – they were high school sweeties! They were sitting next to each other in one of their classes and their story quickly began. Now their journey gets a beautiful new chapter as husband and wife! They were married at the beautiful Ballroom at Church Street in Orlando. It’s one of those timeless locations that can take you back in time and I love the dramatic feeling the venue has. The details at the wedding were beautiful and glamourous with a vintage twist everywhere you turned. I was really in awe of the thumbprint guestbook that Crystal illustrated herself of a champagne bottle. Crystal, get your Etsy account going if you haven’t already! These two are head over heels for each other and I loved seeing them so relaxed and blissful on their wedding day. I wish you a lifetime of laughter and love – you deserve it all and so much more!

Senior Photo Photographer, SE Portland, Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden

Here we are, at my favorite place: Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. I am here a few times a month, for taking photos and just to enjoy this magical place. And now I hope the park might become one of Jared’s favorite places to visit for a quiet moment! We had a blast taking his senior pictures today. I gave the photo collection a bit of a moody, vintage vibe. I always love an opportunity to help someone’s personality shine through and give them pictures they can use in a variety of ways – not just for sending off to the yearbook committee. Thanks so much for choosing me to take your senior photos, Jared! I hope your senior year is the most rewarding and memorable year ever.
