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.

Brittney and Justin, Portland Oregon Wedding Photographer, Newberg Wine Country Wedding

Just when I feel like I’ve met the most relaxed, made for each other, lovestruck couple, then I meet the next one! Brittney and Justin were so fun to work with and I loved every moment of their very intimate wedding ceremony right outside of Newberg, Oregon. Being a Portland wedding photographer allows me to shoot in the  most unexpected and beautiful locations around the area, many of them being private. Their venue was no exception being the home and farm that Justin grew up on. As I was driving down winding roads and going up hills, I was more and more intrigued by the unknown place I was going to. When I arrived, the view was completely stunning. I was in awe that this family can see this landscape surrounding them all of the time. What a beautiful and peaceful place to have a wedding! Brittney and Justin were at ease and ready to celebrate their union. I truly believe that Brittney felt so free and beautiful on this day and Justin was adoring her in that gorgeous dress every minute! Thank you both for allowing me to capture these memories. Your love is ever present everywhere. 🙂

Lynne, Open Door Real Estate, Portland Realtor Headshots, Modern Portraits

Lynne is a wonderful soul with one of the biggest smiles in all of Oregon. No kidding, and it’s no wonder she makes buying or selling a house so painless. Everyone loves Lynne! She is so easy to talk to and feels like a friend in the entire process.  I think the photos we captured during her portrait session perfectly captured her awesome spirit. I can’t wait to see her photos on for sale signs at Portland homes. If you or someone you know needs modern realtor headshots, get in touch with me! It only takes about 30 minutes to get about 50 images to pick from. These photos were taken at Peninsula Park! I love the scenery there – it’s one of my favorite parks in Portland.
