Where to begin...

Bridal Veil Lakes is one of the most pristine, gorgeous locations in The Gorge-- hey, in all of Oregon. I was thrilled to have the opportunity of shooting there last summer with June Lion. Tiana and Ryan were just so sweet together, and they sure know how to throw a good party. Take me back to those summer days, please and thank 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.

I had the privilege of shooting this stunning wedding alongside Erin Riddle of Parallel Photography. Zenith Vineyard was gorgeous, as usual, and the weather put on quite a show. The couple, T + C, are (simply put) two incredible human beings. Spending the day with them, their friends and family, and helping to document their celebration was just lovely.

Plus, torrential downpour, and a rainbow over the ceremony? Yes, please. The magic in the air just further proved that these two uniting their lives is something pretty special. And that rainbow? Totally worth leaving the cover of the tent and getting completely soaked through for a good image or two.
