Julia + John | Engagement shoot, Laurelhurst Park, Portland Or.

finals (3 of 10)


Julia and John's engagement shoot was a walk in the park, literally. These two were so happy and easygoing, from climbing trees to playing catch. It seems I always have couples do something adventurous during their e-shoot. With Julia and John, I had them climb this huge tree. John got up fairly easy but Julia had a little bit harder time. So I gave her a little boost, sorry about the hands :)

I am totally looking forward to their wedding this weekend! John and I go way back to when we used to live in Bend but I moved and we lost touch. When Julia was looking for a wedding photographer she found me and had no idea I knew John. So when we met to go talk about their wedding it was hilarious cause John and I totally did this huge double-take. It's great to see him again and I can honestly say that him and Julia are perfect together.

See you two this weekend--can't wait!

Sarah + Eddie | Treasury Ballroom, Portland, OR

blog (2 of 3)


Eddie has the most infectious laugh I have ever heard. And Sarah could not stop smiling the entire day. The two of them are a match made in heaven. Such a great, fun loving couple. I had the pleasure of having Aubrie from Capturing Grace Photography to be my second shooter. She did a great job.

It was all emotions during the toasts, especially when they played a video of Sarah when she was super little singing about how she is going to have a bubble wedding in the bathtub. She even made a veil out of bubbles. It was one of the cutest things I have seen at a wedding.

Cheers to Eddie and Sarah!

Josh + Jessica | Camp Melacoma, WA

blogs (7 of 10)


Here are just a few of the shots and a slideshow from Josh and Jessica's wedding. The wedding and reception took place in the woods, a place where they are completely happy and it made for an amazing backdrop.

Let me tell you, there was no shortage of pocket knives.

Josh and Jessica have such a great sense of humor and understanding of one another. Every time I clicked the shutter, they we're either laughing or smiling.

One of my favorite parts of the night is when Josh put together a last minute band and serenaded Jessica. Her facial expressions are absolutely priceless.

Aaron + Vilma | St. Peter's Church and Terra Gallery, San Francisico, CA

blogs (11 of 11)


My twin bro and his awesome wife, Vilma, had an amazing wedding. Yes, I was the photographer (along with Lindsay) and the best man :-) It was really fun!

They exchanged their vows in the same church Marilyn Monroe did right in the heart of San Francisco. They had two Priests, Father Pedro and Father Jack. I loved the way Father Jack would say their names in a soft raspy voice that trailed on "Aaron and Vilma...ahhhhhh".

After the ceremony, we partied at the Terra Gallery. Great music, family, food and fun! I am incredibly happy for my brother and Vilma. I love you guys so much.

Watch the very cool at the bottom of the post or see the full screen slideshow here .

The 1/5th Road Trip | OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, UT, CO, NM, AZ, CA

Road Trippin'


I am at our last stop of the road trip...California. It has been an amazing trip. We traveled through ten states and drove who knows how many miles. It was such a great experience and it was even more incredible to spend that time with Lindsay on the road. Here are a few shots from the trip. I did spend some time around the campfire with my computer editing wedding photos :)

We took this trip because from now until the end of the summer, I am booked with weddings. Not to mention the weddings I've shot in recent weeks that still need to be edited and posted! So stay tuned and enjoy!
