Big Sur Elopement | Beatriz + Morgan

Beatriz and Morgan eloped in Big Sur California, one of the most romantic places on earth. Where else can you be emerse yourself in thousand year old trees, miles of waves, and endless cliffs all within a short walk or drive?

Simple and beautiful. These two ditched the idea of a big wedding and instead decided on an intimate celebration of love surrounded by beautiful scenery. They focused on what mattered most to them, a meaningful spiritual ceremony and spending time connecting with each other. 

“I never imagined that one could be wed in such an adventurous and liberating way.” Beatriz

To be able to witness this connection within a couple who radiates their love with every cell in their body is truly beautiful. We try and use our cameras to tell their story but it’s only through truly experiencing their energy can one understand this connection. We hope these images give you a glimpse into two humans who were made to be together.

Columbia River Gorge Portraits

Last year Jameykay and Arlie came to Portland to proclaim their love and elope in the forest. One year later and they returned to celebrate with an anniversary session. We took them to the Columbia River Gorge, one of my favorite mini escapes from the city. Surrounded by the mountains and cliffs we almost didn’t notice the frigid temperatures. It’s wonderful to see a couple a year after the wedding still madly in love and talking about their lives together.

Cheers to you two!oregon-gorge-engagement-photos-0001oregon-gorge-engagement-photos-0002 Continue reading »

Mt. Hood Organic Farms – O’Dessa + Patrick

O’Dessa and Patrick were married near the base of Mt. Hood in front of a gathering of friends and family. I can’t imagine a better backdrop to an Oregon wedding.  The light and airy details were the perfect compliment to a bright summer day.

VSCO Film 06 Review

VSCO released their latest film emulation plugins for Lightroom and ACR today, The Alternative Process Collection. These are very interesting for us as many of our favorite film images are from Portra 160 pushed a stop. These plugins should be very versatile for photographers shooting weddings, editorial, or personal work. This is definitely a popular aesthetic and VSCO seems to have more refined presets with each release.

Roll-over the images to see the before & after.
