Lyndsey + Rich | Portland, Or Wedding Photographer

I adored these two and being a part of their wedding day. They are such a welcoming and honest pair.

My favorite moment of the day: while getting ready and traveling to the venue, Lyndsey was becoming more anxious and nervous by the minute (entirely acceptable on your wedding day). But the moment she saw Rich for their first look, you could see it all melt away. You could actually see her relax and become present. It was an amazing connection to witness.

Their wedding was small and intimate. Everyone there was of great importance to them. Not extra frills and fine details. This day was purely a celebration of their love for each other and the people that mattered to them most. And that's exactly what its all about.

Andrew + Keisha - An Engagement

A couple months ago I received a phone call from my friend and partner in photo-crime, Jason. Some friends of his were in town for the weekend and wanted to get engagement photos done while they were here. So we arranged to meet the next after noon at Pomarius Nursery. They have the most beautiful green house that I'd been waiting for a special occasion to photograph in, and these two were a perfect match. 

It ended up being a cloudy, drizzly morning, which is not so great for the Nursery Business but is perfect weather for photographs (it creates buttery, soft tones and makes your skin look amazing).  

The shoot went fantastic, everyone was in a great mood and it was a dream photographing in the green house. I knew, without question, we created something pretty awesome that day.

But I have to say, with the love and chemistry these two have for each other, I could have taken photos of them in a gravel pit with the wind blowing, in the pouring rain, wearing dirty clothes and it still would have been amazing. 

That's one of those things I love about photography. You can pose people and tell them to smile but it's really about that extra somethin somethin.

It's the love. Whether or not you are photographing engagements, weddings, or families, the chemistry between each other always allows their personalties to shine through. Which in turn allows that true love to shine through. So no matter what "pose" you may put them in, they always have a beautiful way of making it their own. 

And when that happens, that is where the real magic is. 

To Andrew and Keisha - it was such a joy photographing this exciting time in your lives. I wish you so much happiness and I am sure your Montana wedding is going to be nothing short of amazing.
