Madeline & Dan: Engagement

I loved meeting Madeline & Dan for coffee to talk about their wedding, back at Christmas time. I instantly liked them both. They were so sweet and friendly, it was easy to see the strong connection between the two of them. They fit so well with one another. I'm looking forward to photographing their wedding next month at the Lake Oswego Country Club!

Here are a bunch of my favorites... as you can see I had trouble narrowing it down! They are such a beautiful couple!
I love this image on the left! 
Madeline, you are gorgeous!

Chad & Kristin: Puerto Vallarta Destination Wedding

I feel like I don't even know where to start when telling you all about Chad & Kristin's wedding, because it was just SO amazing!

It was the perfect way to kick off my 2013 wedding season. Josh got to come along and shoot this wedding with me, and we also got to stay and vacation in Puerto Vallarta with the wedding party & guests! Oh man, it was so wonderful! The weather was beyond perfect, the resort was so beautiful, the company was a treasure (such a great group), and Chad & Kristin have to be one of the most caring couples I've met. It makes sense that Kristin is a medical nurse because she is so selfless and always thinking of others. Truly beautiful inside and out. And her whole family is the same.

Chad & Kristin got married on an exclusive, private beach hideaway called Las Caletas. We all arrived by boat, and were welcomed in by dolphins swimming alongside our boat, parrots flying overhead and pelicans perched along the coastline. The whole feel of the place almost seemed unreal, like it was out of a fairy tale, or maybe a Disneyland attraction, just so perfectly put together.

Chad & Kristin's wedding was intimate with their closest family and friends in attendance. It was fun watching them all dance the night away, laughing, hugging, and having water fights in the heat of the night. :)

This will always be one of the most memorable weddings I've shot. Everything about it was beautiful, especially the two people who vowed their lives to one another. Congratulations Kristin & Chad! May God richly bless your adventures ahead.


I had to throw this one in because it made me smile... :)
The fire dancers were Uh-mazing! And Chad & Kristin were so brave... Josh called these "firey nunchucks".
What a spectacular day! I was beyond honored to get to capture it.
...we're all going back next year, to celebrate your 1 year anniversary, right? ;)
