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

 

Portland, Oregon Wedding Photography | Northern Virginia Wedding Photography | DJ + Photography Wedding Package

 

It’s so nice to be back on the East Coast and live closer to my family, but Chris and I are definitely missing Oregon! We would love to keep booking weddings in Portland and the surrounding areas, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if your wedding is going to be in the Pacific Northwest! Chris’ family still lives in Portland so we love having an excuse to visit (and eat at all of our favorite Portland restaurants)!

Our most popular wedding package is definitely our joint DJ + Photography package. My husband, Chris, is an A/V Technician and musician who has a serious passion for music. He spins a combination of vinyl and digital music, which means he can create custom playlists for you while also throwing in some of his own favorites from his vinyl collection. I like to describe my wedding photography style as candid, creative and comfortable. I shoot a mixture of film and digital images, which means you get to have that soft, vintage film look for some of your wedding photos, and that clean, crisp, modern look as well. To me, it’s important to give you a variety of photos from your wedding day so you’re not stuck with only posed photos. You can view my wedding photography here! My favorite images to give my couples are dreamy double exposures, colorful polaroids, and silly candid photos to remember your day by.

Contact us soon to book your wedding day! <3
