Angela & Damon’s portland engagement

This engagement session was by far the most relaxing one I have ever photographed. Angela and Damon just asked that we walk around Portland to some of their favorite spots. It was perfect.

Paul & Meg’s 1920’s Portland wedding

This wedding was a blast to photograph. There were so many details that I just loved. Especially the fact that the reception was in a library. So rad. And the 1920’s theme was just perfect for Paul and Meg and they pulled it off so well!

Their wedding took place at the Governor Hotel in Portland. Every detail fit the theme of their wedding. Even the guests dressed for the 1920’s. It was so great and I’m so happy I was there to capture it! Congratulations Paul and Meg!

Iggy & Priscilla’s Arizona wedding

These two.

There are so many words I want to say about this wedding and this adorable couple but I’ll keep it short and sweet.

Iggy and Priscilla are not only insanely photogenic (I mean SERIOUSLY photogenic) but they are incredibly sweet and so kind. Priscilla couldn’t stop smiling and laughing throughout her wedding day and it was so contagious! And any couple that is up for getting into a tree is awesome! I loved everything about this wedding and am so thankful I was able to be a part of it and be able to capture their love

And a big thank you to my sis-in-law Lacey for shooting with me. Check out her stuff cause she’s crazy talented!

Crystal + Kenny

I had so much fun wandering around an open field with these two! Our feet were soaked by the end of the shoot from all the puddles of water but it was so worth it cause these shots are some of my favorites!

Vanessa & Chad

This wedding was so much fun to shoot! It was so beautiful and full of lots of love. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye during the ceremony!
What I love the most about weddings is always the getting ready photos. And with this wedding I was able to get some really fun shots that I just love. And how awesome are Vanessa’s shoes?!

The Van Valin Family

I adore this family. And they take super good pictures. Definitely one of the most photogenic families I’ve ever met.
I’ve known Rachael since I was a little girl and I feel really blessed to now call her my sister-in-law and be an aunt to her kids. Rachael and Nate, it’s so fun watching your family grow and I can’t wait to see where God continues to lead you
And a big thank you to Alisa at The Attic for the props. I just love that couch!

Bryce & Katy married

This wedding was awesome. Bryce and Katy really adore each other and it’s so clear in the photos. That’s always the best feeling as a photographer when a couples’ love comes through in your pictures. It was such a beautiful day. And the dancing at the end of the night was some of the best I’ve ever seen at a wedding. This couple knows how to party :)
Congrats Mr & Mrs Williamson!

A wild(e) child

Meet the newest member of the Wilde family, Mercy Joan! I still remember finding out my brother in law and his wife were expecting a little girl. I can’t believe she’s here :) And I was pretty excited to get to take pictures of her at just four days old! We didn’t plan this shoot at all. It was a spur of the moment thing but I think it turned out pretty great. And Mercy was the best model despite the cold breeze that day.
