Cadence + Rob hold the distinction of being my very first solo wedding since our move to Portland. They were married last March (almost a year ago now), and are just about the loveliest people you'll ever meet. Their Oaks Pioneer Church ceremony was such a warm affair, with such deliciously moody light. Afterward, they headed over to the incomparable Opal 28 for a reception with some of their closest friends.

The emotion and genuine affection, not only between Cadence and Rob (as is evidenced in the photos), but between every human present at this wedding still warms my heart today as I look back at these. Moving my wedding photography to Portland has been a challenge, to say the least, but I am excited to see what 2018 brings. 

Getting married? Looking for a rad wedding photographer that knows what moments to look for, can capture real, raw emotion without being intrusive, and is generally a hoot to be around? That's right, I'm talking about myself like I'm the coolest thing since sliced bread. Gluten free sliced bread, of course.

Let's talk. I'd love to know you.

At last, a moment to breathe, and to work on the blog.

Between traveling for the holidays and surfing the joyous, chaotic, ever changing waves of toddlerhood with L, I feel as though I haven't had a chance to do a lot of non-absolutely-essential work of late. In a quiet moment this morning, I realize that I haven't actually blogged a few full weddings from this summer. What a shame! Here we go, the remedy.

Emilie and Ronald were married at Port Gamble Pavilion in... you guessed it, Port Gamble. It was a gorgeous sunny day, made brighter by Emilie's incredible purple hair.
