Oh man, where to even begin with these two. I’d previously shot their adorable in-home engagement session, and I pretty much fell in love with them while we bonded over champagne. I knew their Palm Springs inspired wedding at Plaza del Toro would be gorgeous, but it totally blew me away! Georgia’s boho dress and Brian’s hip, red suit perfectly represented their personalities. Then showing up to see an industrial restaurant venue transformed into a bohemian and classy event space was the icing on the cake. They had a small ceremony with family and close friends, and afterwards the rest of their guests arrived. There wasn’t a sit down dinner, and the whole reception felt like a hip cocktail hour turned dance party. These two did things their way, and I couldn’t have been more excited to capture it all.Read More
To be honest, I shot Gwen & Ben’s Joshua Tree elopement a year and a half ago. It’s one of those photo sets that I’ve been meaning to blog, but I kept putting it on the back burner while I shot new work. It was fun to go back through their day and put this post together.
A little about Gwen & Ben… they actually had a handful of weddings all over the United States! Since they had family spread out across the country, they had this incredible idea to take their wedding to all of them. They traveled for weeks in a darling vintage airstream and stopped to have weddings and celebrations with all of their loved ones along the way. I shot their first one (that also should be blogged someday, but oh time!) and also this one, their last in Joshua Tree. I loved how this one was at the end of their journey, and it felt like the perfect, relaxing celebration before heading back to Portland.
Here’s Gwen & Ben.. being effortlessly cool. Enjoy.Read More
I met up with these two on a day when Portland was grey, dark and clouded in mist, but when we drove out to the gorge the clouds parted and the sun was far too bright for us to begin the shoot. We detoured to a local brewery and sipped beer while we waited for the sun to go down a bit. When we arrived to Government Cove the lighting was literally perfect. The mist still covered some of the mountains and also created a beautiful filter for the setting sun.Read More

I had just flown into Morocco only one hour before meeting Michelle and Jonas. I was filthy and completely jetlagged, and they just looked perfectly sunkissed and relaxed. As soon as I saw them I knew that I wanted to ask to have a mini-session, but I also didn't want to seem completely crazy! I went for it anyway, and even though they were literally checking out (like bags packed out the door kinda thing) they said yes and we spent about half an hour just roaming around our stunning riad taking snaps.Read More
