2016 - A Look Back

It's safe to say 2016 has been a strange & eventful year in the world.  It has also been a year of major changes for me & my family.  In February, we made the big move from Chicago to Portland, Oregon.  It was certainly difficult leaving our family & friends in the Midwest, as well as the community of wedding professionals in Chicago.  That said, we are loving our new city & the Pacific Northwest, as a whole.  In the fall, we closed on a house in Portland, so we're definitely settling in here.

Professionally, I traveled for almost all of my weddings; shooting in: Puerto Rico, Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, Mexico, and here in Oregon.   As always, a huge thank you to all of my amazing clients that trusted me to capture their big day. 

I'm looking forward to what next year has to in store. If you're looking for a wedding or elopement photographer, I'm available in the Pacific Northwest and worldwide.

I hope your 2017 is a great one.  Thanks for taking time to look back at some highlights from my 2016.

Colleen & Grant- Wedding - Sellwood Park, Portland, Oregon

My first Portland, Oregon wedding was a summer afternoon wedding with these two lovely people.  Ceremony at the historic Oaks Pioneer Church, reception at Oaks Amusement Park.  We also did a post wedding portrait, dusk portrait session in Sellwood Park to get that ideal light.

Michelle & Michael - Wedding - Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL

From engagement session to wedding, these two were a joy to get to know.  Shot in Chicago, IL at Hotel Lincoln, St. Michael, and A New Leaf.  Always great working with Naturally Yours Events.

Marisa & Jisoo - Wedding - University of Chicago, Chicago, IL

I've been making the trip from Portland back to the Midwest for a number of weddings this year.  Marisa & Jisoo's beautiful wedding brought my first trip back, and it was at one of the prettiest spots in Chicago, in my humble opinion, The University of Chicago.

2nd photographer, Stephanie Bassos.
