Hillary and Tyler were married in the Portland LDS Temple  on a gorgeous end-of-August day!  Since they both worked in Alaska over the Summer, this is my first bride and groom that I did not meet until the actual wedding day! I think it was love at first site though, because the heavens aligned with my move to Portland just a week before their wedding–making this picture perfect couple a breeze to photograph.  Their love was so contagious, I almost didn’t want to see them go!  Congrats, love birds!

This wedding was AMAZING.  Kalli and Mazi were so stunning, calm, and enamored with one another and it just made the day even more dreamy than the location already set the stage for.  Their wedding took place at Red Barn Studios in Chehalis and from the big red doors, all the way to the gorgeous sunflowers, it made for a chic and relaxed event.  It was a photographer’s dream!  Congratulations, lovebirds!

My sweet friends had their baby last week and I was just thrilled to be able to capture his tiny self and his new big brothers.  Their house is so cool and colorful, so it was the perfect backdrop for this trendy babe (and all that hair!) to get his first photos.  He is just adorable and I could have photographed him all day.  I seriously love love love my job.

I’m so excited to kick off this Sunny Summer with such a sweet family!  They were a joy to photograph–and their littlest firecracker had me rolling because she could not stay still– I wish I had her energy!  It was the perfect family session for a perfect evening.

I was so excited to photograph this family once again!  Their daughter is just darling (with the best nicknames ever), and I always love that we can reminisce about how much we miss eating at Chick-fil-A in Georgia since we have both transplanted from there.  These pictures just speak JOY to me and I can’t tell you how much I love having them as clients!  The color in these photos makes me super happy.
