Haley + Deanna // Intimate Columbia Gorge Wedding // Government Cove, OR

Where to even begin with these two. They stole my heart the moment we met over drinks to discuss their wedding. The joy that they bring into each other’s life is contagious and undeniably clear. Their wedding day was focused on the love that they share, with the dramatic backdrop of the majestic Columbia River Gorge. They had an intimate gathering at their home afterwards, filled with homemade cake, blackberry cheesecake made with berries from their yard, and pizza also lovingly made by their friend (http://hogansgoatpizza.com/pies.html). I am happy that they have naturally transitioned from amazing clients to dear friends in a short amount of time.

Adele and Jamie // Newquay Cornwall Wedding // Destination Wedding Photographer

14 years ago (!?!?) I went to study in the UK – having barely ever taken a photo, let alone considered a career in photography – and met Adele. This summer I returned to capture her incredible wedding on the wild, beautiful coastline of Cornwall. It’s amazing how so much in our lives has changed since 2004, and, when it comes to our friendship, how little hasn’t. Connections that withstand the test of not only time, but also distance, are one of life’s greatest treasures. This wedding was full of beautiful words and songs to celebrate the love between Adele and Jamie, and I hope these photos show the love I carry for them as well.

Intimate Mountaintop Wedding // Hannah + Kevin // Lookout Mountain, Oregon

The day began just before sunrise, with a sweet first look on the balcony of their SE Portland apartment building. We then started the drive, as the fog settled in and the sun turned from pale pink to vibrant orange as it climbed higher. Through bumpy and dusty forrest roads, we made out way to the trailhead. They were greeted with hugs and smiles from their close friends and family. And then began the intentional and scenic walk to the top of the mountain, to get themselves married…!
