Portland Wedding

Blockhouse PDX Wedding | Jenna + Matt

Jenna and Matt are absolutely hilarious.  I laughed so hard with these two, it was a complete giggle storm out there.  They are also incredibly warm and caring people, I saw this in their relationships with their friends and family, and also the way that they treated me throughout the day, I definitely didn't feel like a vendor at all, but like a friend who had brought along a camera.

They had a beautiful wedding at Blockhouse in Portland, a newer and really awesome venue in Portland.  I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story...

Portland Wedding Photographer | Ally + Zach

I had a complete blast with Ally and Zach, they're both so kind and down to earth, and they had their wedding in Ally's parents back yard which added an intimate element to their wedding.  Imagine a backyard dinner party with all of your favorite people, that's what I'm talking about.  

I believe Ally's mom is a landscape designer, so for me it was fun to capture the beauty of their back yard (which I do at any wedding), and know that it had a more personal and meaningful element to it.  It's little things like this that make my work more meaningful and enjoyable to me.

Hornings Hideout Wedding | Featured

I don't really seek out getting my work featured too much, I send a few weddings to Portland Bride and Groom every year, and if I think something is a great fit for a certain publication I might submit it, but overall I've been able to find amazing clients that fit me so well without spending a lot of time submitting weddings, since I didn't become a photographer to spend my time submitting stuff (even though getting published is fantastic marketing, and I'd even recommend it, it's just not where I choose to spend my time at this phase in my life.)

Anyways, all that rambling, but I was stoked to get an email from Luxe NW, who I worked with on Shannon and Dillon's wedding at Horning's Hideout this last summer, letting me know that an image from their wedding was published on Inspired By This.  It's always an honor to have work featured, and Shannon and Dillon are incredible, as was their wedding, I'm so grateful to have gotten to work with them and their amazing vendor team, it was a moving and fun day behind the camera in Portland.  Click here to see the post.
