When Lily & Tim began planning their special day, they knew they wanted a small, intimate Portland Elopement. They picked a spot in Washington Park, where they could have their ceremony on a beautiful stairway covered in leaves, ferns, and moss with a backdrop of northwest greenery. They asked their mothers and two best friends to witness their Portland Elopement, and of course their sweet dog Leo. The couple exchanged vows they each had written, sharing memories of how they met and their time together. After the ceremony, Lily and Tim joined their family and friends for a brunch in downtown Portland.
It was such a treat to photograph this lovely Washington Park Elopement! Congrats to the happy couple! Read More
As Portland, Oregon wedding photographers, Angelina and I often reflect that connecting with others and documenting something so special is immensely rewarding. We love not only the photography aspect, but the opportunity it gives us to meet and get to know so many different people.
All of the weddings we are part of are special to us, but we have especially fond memories of Charlotte and Brad's wedding. It was one the first weddings we documented together and it was the most intimate of ceremonies — a Bridal Veil Falls Elopement! We all hiked together to the beautiful Bridal Veil Waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge, documented the special elopement, served as witnesses, and then had an awesome time taking photos after. It was such a wonderful day and we loved getting to know Charlotte and Brad, and their sweet rescue dog Riley, who they brought along to be part of their wedding day. Read More
We first met Cherie and Patrick when we photographed their woodland engagement on New Year's Day, and we were honored when this charming couple asked us to capture their summer wedding. As we spent time getting to know them, we were struck by their chemistry and connection, the kind that comes from a relationship which began as friends over seven years ago. Cherie told us she is so lucky to marry her best friend, and we couldn't agree more.
Cherie and Patrick planned a small wedding at a quaint Bed and Breakfast in Oregon. Patrick's work requires a lot of travel, so their time together is precious. Having both photos and video highlights of the entire wedding day was important to them as they started their life as a newly married couple. Summer weather for a Pacific Northwest wedding can be a bit unpredictable, but the afternoon rain showers just added to the fun of their special day. Thank you so much to Cherie and Patrick for letting us document your wedding - cheers to you both and your adventures together! Read More
