Erin & John: Engagement

I'm really excited to photograph Erin & John's wedding this coming weekend! I know it's going to be so special, because these two are! They have been living out of state and flew in early this week to wrap up a few wedding details, spend time with family, and for their engagement shoot.

I had such a great time with them, and love seeing what a team they are. They are truly best friends in love. Here are a few of my favorites... such a beautiful couple!

Jessica & Bryan: University of Portland Wedding

Jessica and Bryan's wedding day was very much like them. Relaxed and beautiful. It was such a great celebration! These two are so well accomplished and hard working. And even though Jessica is magazine-beautiful I love that she doesn't take herself too seriously.

From the very start of the day I could tell it was going to be fun. Jessica was surrounded by the sweetest friends and family as she got ready, and there was so much joy in the room.

Jessica and Bryan decided to do their photos before the ceremony, but opted to have a private, unphotographed, first look time alone, which I thought was really special. Then we took photos on University of Portland's beautiful bluff behind the bell tower and Chapel. We had such beautiful light at that time, under the most lovely trees.

Here are a "few" ;) of my favorites from their day:
Jessica, you are STUN-ning!
This group of guys has staged this exact pose many times over at special events or one another's weddings. I think the original photo was from high school or college... It's the friendship photo that lives on! :) Love it!
Congratulations Jessica & Bryan! I was so honored to get to capture your beautiful wedding day!
