Beth + Lee's engagement

I met Beth and Lee on Saturday down in Corvallis for their engagement shoot. They both live down there so we started the shoot in downtown to capture the city before heading out to Lee's family vineyard just north of Corvallis. I photographed Lee's brother's wedding last summer at the same vineyard, so I knew I was in for a treat. The vineyard property is stunning! There is a hill in the middle with several huge oak trees. This hill overlooks a gorgeous valley. I love the Oregon countryside, it is so stunning! They brought along their 13 week old puppy named Barley to the shoot. She is such a sweetie! She definitely had some crazy puppy energy and went on a couple runs around the vineyard while we were taking photos. Overall the day was perfect and I'm looking forward to shooting Beth and Lee's wedding in a few months.

sweet Kiersten

I haven't posted about Kiersten in a long time! I had the pleasure of getting to see my 2-year old niece last week on a gorgeous day. Nicole (my sister) and I took Kiersten on a long walk in the sunshine. She is really starting to get silly and show her personality much more. She talks and talks, laughs and laughs, runs and runs, and even has a great sense of humor! Not that I was being funny... but at one point I said goodbye to a butterfly and she started cracking up. I loved that! I love this little girl.

Ashley + Tim's engagement

Engagement season has officially hit! We have several more shoots lined up in the coming weeks now that the clouds have parted and the sun is showing its lovely face! We start off this string of shoots with Ashley and Tim. Shawn and I met up with them this last weekend and we all wandered around some industrial areas in NW Portland. We love shooting in industrial areas for good textures and colors. These two are really sweet together and we look forward to shooting their wedding in just a couple months.

Daily Diptych project

I am very excited to introduce you to a photo project I have been working on with friend and fellow photographer Cory Reed. We started Daily Diptych on January 1st this year and have a total of 79 photo diptychs completed and posted on our new website: http://dailydiptych.com. The website as you see it now is temporary and will be evolving in the coming weeks.

A little about the project: Every day we take a photo and chose one without knowing what the other photographer has shot that day. Then we put the two photos together and post them on this site daily. Cory is always on the left and I am always on the right. Along with this website, we plan on having gallery openings, press releases and a book out at the end of the year. Stop by the website and follow the project on twitter.

Heidi + Adam's wedding

Heidi and Adam were married last Saturday at the Hotel Deluxe. As you can see from the photos, all of Heidi and Adam's friends had cute kids! They made up the wedding party for the day! All of the girls got to wear bright pink and red tutus with matching sneakers. It was too cute. Right after the ceremony we all headed up to Heidi and Adam's hotel suite for some photos. The kids came along and went bonkers jumping on the bed! I will post some of those photos in the slideshow soon. The rest of the evening went perfectly as our great friends Shawn and Marc of Event Team Entertainment led the rest of the night with great music and entertainment for all of the guests. Congrats to the happy couple!
