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


Elizabeth & Michael's Dreamy & Intimate Wedding at Opal 28 in POrtland


Elizabeth & Michael's Wedding at Opal 28 was elegant, simple and beautifully classic. They are both adorably sweet and couldn't seem to stop smiling the entire day. Opal 28 has the most gorgeous natural light and is close to Laurelhurst Park (one of my favorite parks in Portland), where we went for photos with their bridal party after the ceremony. They had family fly in from all over the world and it felt truly special to be a part of their day. I still can't get over how stunning Elizabeth was, such a beauty. Congrats Elizabeth & Michael!
