Missy + Chris

My heart has held a very special place for Missy since the first time I held her as an infant over 20 years ago! My darling cousin married Chris, the love of her life, a month ago on a GORGEOUS Portland afternoon at Krueger's Farm on Sauvie Island amongst their beloved family and friends. Their day was perfect. I am SO VERY HAPPY for these two and can't wait to see them grow in life and love together. Thank you SO MUCH, Uncle Ken, Aunt Aimee, Jess, Ben, Missy and Chris - enjoy the Slideshow - and I can't wait for the "month after" portrait session we get to do next time you're in town!

How cool are we? AND A CHANCE AT $25!

KKP (Kate Kelly Photograph) is the proud owner of a brand spankin' new set of hot walkie talkies! How sweet is that? Now at weddings Angie (or one of my other fabulous second shooters) and I can communicate - often I'm with the bride while she's getting ready and Angie is with the groom, or vice versa. They'll be MOST useful in cases where brides and grooms don't want to see each other before the ceremony. They also will come in handy at our next MINI SESSIONS (October - stay tuned for details). I can shoot away until I hear the STOP command loud and clear from Angie! This is so funny but practical... we're stoked! Maybe we can find hot holsters or something for them! What do you think? Angie and I are wondering what our code names should be - the person who LEAVES A COMMENT WITH THE CODE NAMES FOR US

Christine and Wes’s most beautiful ceremony was held at the mother of the bride’s gorgeous home in Lafayette, California in April. Their family and close friends helped them celebrate their union at the backyard reception complete with divine food, flowers, wine and espresso – naturally! Christine and Wes own Espresso Arts Catering – please check out their site and keep them in mind for weddings and events!

Christine and Wes, you guys are incredible and your wedding day was perfect! I’m so glad to know you and can’t wait for tomorrow’s Portland Reception! Enjoy your Slideshow

My Beloved Sister and her Beloved Dave!

My beautiful sister Jen and her fabulous fiancee Dave were recently in town for our dear Cousin Missy's wedding (yes, I photographed, will be on the blog next week!!!). We shot their e-session at the scene of the crime - where it all began! Their first date started out at Starbucks. They each liked what they saw in each other so they then extended the date beyond coffee. They headed across the street to The Baghdad Theater and caught a film. Since it was still going so well, Jen and Dave walked down to Hawthorne Cafe for a meal. That evening was the first of many dates and the start of their beautiful relationship.

They will be married at
CalNeva Resort on the California Nevada border in July and I'm honored to photograph AND serve as co-maid of honor with our sister, Claire. Dave and Jen, I love you guys and can't wait to see you next month! Enjoy your Slideshow!

Mini Sessions and Cystic Fibrosis

Angie and I have been buzzing around offloading the GORGEOUS images from last weekend's two fabulous weddings! And we've been finalizing the mini session processing.... we're SO EXCITED with how things turned out! Below are a few favorites - but stay tuned for MORE.

And last night we photographed the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's annual Chef's Dinner gala at the Oregon Convention Center. Photos in a few weeks! I'm THRILLED to hear the event raised over $75,000 for such an absolutely wonderful cause!
