Portland wedding photography by Jen Hecht

Jolie Holland and Her Magic Superpowers

Since today I’m off to shoot a wedding at Pendarvis Farm, the home of roots music festival Pickathon, it seems fitting to share a tiny look at one of the photos I took of the ultra amazing Jolie Holland and her band last week.  The band joked that they didn’t have a band name yet for the pack of talented musicians who play with Jolie on her new album, but they were considering Her Magic Superpowers… so there you have it.  More to come soon!


Mud and Love | Edgefield Wedding

Last night’s wedding at McMenamin’s Edgefield was just perfect.  The rain held, the brides were beautiful, awesome people, and Sara Bareilles played live in the amphitheater as the wedding reception morphed into a frenzy of dance.  More to come soon…


A + J | Hoyt Arboretum Engagement Session

Here’s just a smidge of a hint of a glimpse of the awesome love I’ve been photographing lately.  This love is so real, and so beautiful.  These two are amazing.  So much more to come very soon… but first, I’m off to Yachats to photograph an Oregon coast elopement!  XO!


Stephanie + Sean | Hood River Wedding

Exactly one year ago today, Stephanie and Sean had a gorgeous, love-filled Hood River wedding.   Stephanie and Sean are both funny, bighearted, passionate, talented people (she’s a craft beer marketing guru at Full Sail and freelance graphic designer, and he’s a straight-up jiu jitsu ninja — if you don’t believe me, check out the dancing photo below) and they’re adored and deeply loved by a big circle of people.  Friends and family celebrated their marriage with lots of laughter and many happy tears.  Here’s a little taste of the big day… happy one-year anniversary to Stephanie + Sean!!

Stefanie + Karla | Leach Botanical Gardens Wedding

Stefanie and Karla got hitched at Leach Botanical Gardens over the weekend.  It was a wonderful, heartwarming day.  So glad I got to be there.  I’m running off to the mountains for a week, but I’ll be back soon with more from the latest Portland weddings at Luminous!  Hugs from Yosemite already.  XO.
