PDX & RVA Wedding Photography | Molly & Paul's Wedding at House on Metolius

Oregon has so many incredible wedding locations, but House on Metolius is SERIOUSLY beautiful. This was the second wedding I’ve photographed there (check out Katie & Mark’s wedding there too!) and it was even better than I remembered. It’s quite a trek to get there from Portland and includes almost 100 miles of twists and turns through Santiam Pass. We even had to help someone get their car out of a ditch on the way home! But there’s definitely something special about getting married in the middle of nowhere, especially when your family and friends make the journey with you. It forces everyone to relax, take a vacation, enjoy the scenery and experience everything that Oregon has to offer. Now that I live in Virginia, I miss Oregon and it’s beauty but I’m lucky enough that my job allows me to travel back and forth between the two states. I’ll gladly fly back to Oregon to photograph at House on Metolius any day.

Congrats Molly & Paul! You two are the cutest! <3

RVA Wedding Photography | PDX Wedding Photography | Emily & Alex Wedding at McMenamin's Roadhouse

 

Emily & Alex

I was so excited when Emily & Alex asked me to photograph their wedding. Emily is a super talented hair stylist based in Portland, Oregon. We’ve done tons of photo shoots and collaborations together over the last 6 years (like this one)! Emily & Alex had a beautiful ceremony at The Old Church in downtown Portland and then finished up the night with a reception at McMenamin’s Roadhouse. The weather was perfectly overcast (which is always great for photos) and the sun peeked out as the sun was going down for some lovely portrait backlighting. I brought a million film cameras with me (as usual) and took some magical polaroids and Holga photos. I always love working with friends like Emily, who truly value my work and let me get as experimental as I want with their photos. I love the vintage, yet modern aesthetic of Emily & Alex’s wedding - and any bride with lavender hair is immediately my kind of bride. Chris (my husband) was the DJ for the wedding (if you’re looking for a Photography / DJ wedding package - that’s us)! Emily and Alex now have the cutest twin boys (Hunter & Jack) and I love watching their love journey. You can follow Emily on instagram to see her talented hairstyling at @portlandhairstylist. Love you Emily & Alex! <3
