{Emily + Danny: Married!} | Warrenton, OR wedding photographer

Emily happens to be my oldest friend in the world. Her parents and my parents have been friends for years, and she and I grew up together. To this day, we still share a special friendship and not only that, but she is my hair stylist extraordinaire! ┬áIt was my honor to shoot her wedding in September, to Danny, who is her perfect match. Their day was my so much fun, and I was so lucky and so happy to be a part of it. Danny’s parents live in Warrenton, OR, on the coast. The wedding and reception was held at their home, but Emily was adamant that she didn’t want it to feel like a “beach” wedding. It didn’t, and we we lucked out with sunshine and mild temperatures. Enjoy their day!

Emily’s gorgeous dress

This was a sweet moment as Danny’s Dad came in and presented Emily with a beautiful diamond necklace to wear on her special day

Emily and Danny elected to do pictures before the ceremony

The first look!

Emily’s Mom with her adorable Grandkids, who played flower girl and ring bearers for the day

Emily’s beautiful sisters, Wren & Rachael looked gorgeous as the matrons of honor

Love this one of the boys

Danny and his groomsmen all had custom Nike AirForce Ones. Pretty cool idea!

Quite possibly my favorite of the day!

Well, maybe I lied, this one is probably my favorite

Emily, expectantly waiting for the ceremony to begin, watching the guests come in. She looks so beautiful!

Exchanging rings and vows

Emily did almost all the decorating herself. Love these flower balls for the reception

Emily’s best friend Bethel did all the cupcakes for the wedding. They were adorable!

I can’t believe its already been 2 months since the wedding. I’m getting a little teary eyed going through the pictures of their day again. It is always a joy to see two people in love on their wedding day, and the happiness is contagious! For me, the greatest thing about being a photographer is capturing the happy memories that will be remembered forever…and if it happens to be a friend, it is even more rewarding.

Danny and Emily, thank you again for the honor of photographing your wedding day. I love you both, and wish you a lifetime of love and joy!

{Mr. C is 6 months old!} Portland, OR family photographer

Its hard to believe its already time for Mr. C’s 6 month pictures! Time is flying! I have been keeping really busy with weddings, families, seniors etc during late summer and early fall. Now that the weddings are over for the year, I can take more time to edit and update my site and blog. Yay!

Here are some pictures of the cutest 6 month old around!

Mom wanted to get a few shots of Mr. C in his Halloween costume. Too cute, little Lion Man!

I actually really loved Mom’s idea of doing pictures around their family home, just doing regular routine things around the house. She wanted to capture some of dinner time, since baby is just recently eating food.

I loved this “baby bird” shot!

He wouldn’t stop flirting while eating! Watch out ladies!

After dinner we got some naked time and tummy time!so cute!

Emily and Brandon are such great parents. I love watching them interact with their little one!

Such a big boy!Thanks again E & B for having me in your home to capture some precious moments with your little one! I’m looking forward to our next time already, and seeing how Mr. C will grow and change!

{Nik + Rachelle: wedding!} Sandy, OR wedding photographer

Nik and Rachelle are friends of mine, and their gorgeous July wedding was one that I got to attend as a guest, rather than a “working” guest. However, I can’t resist taking lots of pictures at weddings, even when I’m not working, and since Rachelle was such a stunning bride, I have to share some pictures!

Their wedding and reception were at Nik’s parent’s house, on the Sandy River. It was a perfect night-not too warm or too cold, great food, drinks and friends and we even got to end the night with a wedding beach bonfire! I loved the whole thing. So, for some pictures!

I loved Rachelle’s dress, it was so amazing on her.The sun hit her just right as her step dad walked her to the aisle

Her Dad walked her down the aisle

Nik’s face is so sweet as he waits for her

Mr. & Mrs!

For the cocktail hour we had drinks on the private beach and the bride and groom walked down for some pictures

Here’s Rick and some of our friends on the beach

And one last one of the table setting. I loved the colors.

Congratulations again Nik & Rachelle. It was such a gorgeous wedding and we had so much fun! So happy for you both :)

Connolly Family

Nichole asked me to take pictures of her whole family as a Christmas present for her parents and Grandma. We rounded up the whole family over Christmas weekend, and since it was a very nasty day outside, we decided to use the common room at Nichole’s condo building. It ended up working out well and we got some great shots of a great looking family!

4 generations of women

I love this one of Nichole and her brother

Nichole’s immediate family

Nichole’s brother and his adorable family

Thank you again Connollys for spending some time with me over Christmas. It was a joy to take pictures with you all!
