Cheri + Steve's day-after shoot

We met Steve and Cheri for an extra photo shoot the day after their wedding. We started at the lovely Classical Chinese Garden in Old Town and then ended the shoot at the Pittock Mansion. It was nice to get a little extra time with these two and to photograph Cheri in her purple gown.

Cheri + Steve's wedding

Cheri and Steve were married this past Fourth of July at the Abernathy Center in Oregon City. The day had perfectly overcast skies which are perfect for us photographers! As you can see Cheri is absolutely stunning. Not only is she gorgeous, but she is the sweetest bride ever! I just loved being around her all day. Cheri and Steve did nothing but enjoy one another and have a great time with their friends and family. Their easy going and kind personalities led to a smooth, relaxed and romantic day. One of the best moments to experience was when Steve got to see his bride for the first time. To say the least, he was completely taken back by his bride. They laughed, hugged and even danced a little, acting as if we weren't even there. They seemed to just be lost in the moment with one another. It was really sweet.

We were able to spend the day working alongside some talented vendors...

SNEAK PEEK! Matt + Jaci's engagement

SNEAK PEEK! Sophia + Tam's wedding

Sarah + Lee's engagement

Sarah and Lee just booked us for their 2011 wedding next summer. They are both moving to Alaska this month so we went ahead and did their engagement shoot before the big trip. They live in the Gorge and both love the outdoors so we went out to the Vista House in Corbett. As you can see, the view is amazing up there! After we got our fill of the beautiful scenery from above, we headed down the road to Bridal Veil Falls. It's a perfect little hike down to the falls. Sarah and Lee trekked around the bottom of the falls and even went out into the river for some shots.

We loved their playful personalities. They were so comfortable and happy together. Despite how it can be a little weird to have your photo taken, Lee managed to smile and laugh through the process which kept us all having a good time.
