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. ­čÖé I hope to see you again soon for the next big moments in your journey!

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.

St. John’s Portland Engagement Session, Cathedral Park, Damian and Jessica

These two. How can I begin? They are just radiating love. From their smiles, laughter, hugs and squeezes, you can tell they are truly meant to be. We had a blast shooting together on a beautiful Portland day when the weather was just absolutely perfect. Between seeing a┬áfew goose friends to enjoying all of the spring foliage in Cathedral┬áPark, we really got some beautiful shots that capture the way they care about each other. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out and so glad I was able to meet them during their trip to Portland!
