This just in: the Oregon coast is gorgeous. Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area in Pacific City never disappoints. I had such a great time capturing Lindsey & Roberto on a beautiful March day. Can't wait to document their wedding in Portland this summer.

Anna & Enrique - Wedding - Gordon Lodge, Door County, Wisconsin

We had a really dry summer last year in Portland. However, Anna & Enrique's gorgeous wedding at Gordon Lodge in Door County, Wisconsin brought the Pacific Northwest vibes. Moss, evergreens & cool, overcast weather (my favorite). Ceremony at Stella Maris Catholic Church.

Special kudos for one of the best choreographed first dances I've seen... such an amazingly sweet couple.

Mary & Derek - Wedding - Meydenbauer Yacht Club, Bellevue, Washington

One thing I love about documenting weddings is the range of emotions that I get to capture. Tear up, when it's time to tear up... then tear it up, when it's time to tear it up. These two did just that & they also couldn't be sweeter.

Not only are Diana & Trevor sweet & laid back people, they are also both talented photographers. It's always a bit of an extra honor for fellow photographers to entrust me to document their big day. Their beautiful wedding was at  The Laurelhurst Club in Portland, Oregon. One thing that's amazing about Portland is how many gorgeous parks there are scattered around the city. You don't have to travel far for picturesque backdrops.

Great working with wedding planner, Rose & Stone on this wedding.

Orli & Brandon - Wedding - Bridgeport Art Center, Chicago, IL

These two are so sweet, lovely & brave enough to take some outdoor portraits in the chilly February weather of Chicago. This wedding is also special because I photographed Orli's sister's wedding in 2014 & I'll be capturing their mother's wedding this spring. It's a wonderful feeling to be so appreciated & welcomed by the same family that they've entrusted me to document so many important moments.
