These guys! Jeremy and Eric held an intimate backyard wedding for family and close friends earlier this summer and followed it up with a seeeeerious party at Seattle’s Melrose Market that evening. This wedding was full of a bunch of firsts for me: my first time meeting a hairless cat in real life (OMG), my first time watching Mama Tits of Mimosas with Mama perform (DOUBLE OMG), and my first time witnessing two grooms enter the reception space each shackled to a ball and chain (TRIPLE OMG?). BASICALLY: it was awesome.

A few months ago I took a series of photos for Metropolitan Family Service in Portland. The organization was in the middle of a rebranding, and felt that having photos from a few photographers in the city would make the site more dynamic. I visited the spots they asked me to (including an elementary school, but can’t share the photos of the kids!) and turned in my work without knowing what would be used, if anything. I just found out that quite a few of the photos are on the site (along with the work of other photographers), and wanted to share! Here are a few more — both some that the organization used, and some that they didn’t but that I really like:
I love a good courthouse wedding! My husband and I got married in the courthouse in Huntsville, Alabama, and I was so excited when Mary + Paul asked me to shoot their own courthouse wedding here in Portland. There’s something really fun about punctuated wedding days — the usual wedding blur happens at a faster rate and it’s just fun to watch everyone move through it so quickly, but just as excited as they would be at a wedding anywhere. Here are some photos from the day!
YAY let’s talk about Cait and Matt! These guys had the super awesome themed engagement session, and I knew the wedding would be a lot of fun. This was my first time shooting at the Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom, and I think this venue was the peeeeeeerfect choice for this wedding.
