Brian and Soyoung had a lovely wedding with close family and friends. The couple was so sweet together, you can really see love between two people. After a nice ceremony everyone headed over to the Governor Hotel for the reception where they enjoyed dinner, dessert and salsa lessons from instructors!
Urban backdrop for family photos, yes please! Let’s get out of the park and into the grit of the city. With textures and colors to work with, you never know what you’ll find around the corner that will be a great background for an image. I had a great time with the Clarkson family and the boys even enjoyed the photo shoot! Mission accomplished:)

Sally and Dallas said “I Do” on January 29th, 2011. It didn’t rain out at the scenic Columbia Gorge Hotel and we were able to walk around the grounds to take some pics of the happy couple. Despite the crisp chill in the air Sally kept warm with a lovely vintage fur wrap. Grandma made all the flower arrangement and the bouquet for the bride. It was an emotional day for Sally. Having her dad there to walk her down the aisle meant a lot since he had been very ill. He gave a touching toast and everyone celebrated into the evening with the newlyweds. Enjoy the slideshow.
Jane and Nick held an intimate ceremony at the charming Oaks Pioneer Church on the popular 10.10.10 date. Family and close friends attended the ceremony then everyone headed back over to the Waverly Country Club where more guests arrived to help them celebrate. Guests mingled, drank and snacked on appetizers all evening. Then the party really got started when the band started playing! Live music is so different than having a DJ, it adds a more interactive element and pumps folks up to dance! Click below to watch the slideshow of highlights from their fall wedding. Enjoy!
The second half of Danielle and Dane’s engagement session was a retro picnic in the park. Just a reminder this couple brought all the props for this shoot. She bought vintage soda (it was warm when they were drinking it!), a plaid blanket, wicker picnic box, old books and vintage camera. I was very impressed with everything she brought and it made for a really fun shoot. When you have props or something to do it makes the shoot easier for you. Many couples are very nervous to have their photo taken and this takes a bit of the pressure off. Enjoy!
