Love Wins! | Marriage Equality Ruling

Today was an amazing day. It’s been a rollercoaster of love and thrills and weddings and happy tears, especially at the Multnomah County Building and Melody Ballroom, where I had the extraordinary experience of photographing some of the first legally recognized same-sex weddings in Oregon. I can’t wait to share with some of the photos of the incredible couples who finally married today!
In the meantime, any same-sex couples who need a photographer for their weddings, elopements or vow renewals should absolutely contact me; I’m passionate about making sure all couples have access to beautiful documentation for their big days!

Kim + Anne | Edgefield Engagement Session

On a surprisingly sunny winter day just after Christmas, I photographed these two as we explored the sprawling landscape around McMenamin’s Edgefield. During the session, the two talked about their future plans together, and remembered some of the most meaningful and rich moments in their relationship to date. I was moved by how much Kim and Anne love each other, and I can see their connection so clearly in the way they are with one another, and the way they talk about each other. Tomorrow I’ll photograph their wedding at Aspen Hall in Bend; I can’t wait for the adventure, love, and celebration this weekend will bring. I’ll be sure to report back soon. :)

Julia + Ashley | Sauvie Island Wedding Photographer

I’ve tried writing this post a few different times, and each time I fear I’m going to write a book instead. I keep thinking there’s just no way I can even scratch the surface of Julia and Ashley’s wedding with just a few words… but I’ll try.
