Stuart and Anca’s Portland Elopement was probably the most unique elopement I have ever shot. Stuart called me to tell me that they were needing to elope before having a wedding overseas. At the last minute they decided to make a real day of it and elope on the OHSU Tram, or flying potato as Stuart calls it. Plan’s were in place for a Saturday morning, which happened to coincide with a forecast for snow. They pressed on with their plans anyway! Despite freezing temps we all met at the bottom of the tram and rode the tram up while Stuart and Anca exchanged vows.The view was incredible,and the mood was playful. After riding the tram back down and seeing that the snow had kicked into full gear, we scrapped our original plan of shooting at the top of the tram and headed to The Ace Hotel to take advantage of their warm lobby, and fun photo booth. It was such a great time. Stuart and Anca were up for anything and trusted me to make a last minute change of plans. I am so glad we did. We had a really great time and got some beautiful images. Congratulations Stuart and Anca! P.S. The top image from this elopement was featured on Looks Like Film. What an honor!

It was so much fun to tag along with a fellow local Portland wedding photographer on this St Johns wedding! The Colony was the back drop for the entire day. This venue was full of character, texture, and visual interest. On top of all that the main building has to offer, outside is a collection of vintage trailers that made for a fun backdrop for bridal photos! Did I mention it was NYE? What a beautiful way to bring in the new year.

We started the day in the bridal suite capturing the bride getting ready, and all the fun details. Her bouquet was lush and beautiful with a relaxed organic shape. It was the perfect compliment to her dress which was understated and elegant. Beneath that beautiful dress were these fun, sparkly Kate Spade keds. Her style was a perfect blend of elegance and simplicity with a touch of playfulness (those shoes!).

Once the bride and groom finished getting ready we took them outside for some portraits of just the two of them. It was a bitter cold day! luckily we were able to use the vintage trailer The Colony has on site. This made for an intimate and fun backdrop for bride and groom portraits. The signing of the ketubah came next, and then the intimate evening ceremony. The bride and groom were flanked by a beautiful swag of greenery and candlelight.

Finally, the traditional breaking of the glass which signaled the end of the ceremony, and the beginning of the party. Toasts, laughter, good food, and lots of dancing. It was a memorable affair filled with warmth. Extra special thanks to Portland Wedding Photographer Jamie Jones for having me along to second shoot with her. We had so much fun shooting together (and posing for shots in the photobooth!)

S+B’s wedding day couldn’t have been more intimate and perfect.  I joined another Portland wedding photographer to shoot this wedding and I am so glad I did!

The bride and groom chose to get ready in at home. It was a quintessential old Portland house, and their decor eclectic. We found personal touches throughout the home. This is a veritable treasure trove for me as photographer, because I love incorporating special object in the images whenever possible. I photographed her heirloom Tiffany & Co earrings in a champagne glass surrounded by spirits on the bar cart, and their custom letterpress invitation suite was laid out on their cowhide rug.

The backyard ceremony (held at a family members home) was small. They had a beautiful altar and a dear family friend to officiate. Their ceremony was beautiful, and it was custom tailored to reflect their history together. It was elegant & intimate, yet understated. It was obvious that a lot of thought went into crafting the day.

Finally, they were joined at Elder Hall by close friends to have a family style dinner. I really cant think of a better way to do it!  The entire event was small and simple like an elopement, but with all the festivities and the company of those who are near and dear like you would expect with a traditional wedding. I was so inspired by the entire day; I came home and announced to my husband that we needed to renew our vows so we could have an event like this!
