As I am prepping for my last two destination weddings of the year, I am reflecting back on my favorite spots from my Europe trip back in July!  Full Blog post coming soon!

-Nuremberg, Germany

Fuji 400H

Bijan and Brianna traveled down to Portland from Seattle on a very rainy day for a fun weekend of pre-wedding activities and parties.    My plan from the beginning was to photograph them in a “minimalistic” environment that would allow them to naturally find their rhythm in front of the camera.   I really wanted them to shine in this series, without any distracting elements…to keep it simple, honest, and raw.    I was excited to photograph them during their romantic afternoon, while they were prepping for a surprise party they were going to attend that evening.   Bijan arrived to their Airbnb with flowers in hand, which naturally led to hugs, cuddles and dancing in the kitchen.  It was pouring buckets of rain outside, which only enhanced the coziness and romance of the atmosphere .   They shared a bottle of wine while we all  laughed and chatted excitedly about their 2018 wedding.   These two are so fun loving and I was especially happy when Brianna initiated a playful pillow fight to finish out our time together!  I have always wanted to photograph a couples session in all black and white,  and I am so grateful Brianna and Bijan trusted my perspective, and vision!   I am really looking forward to their beautiful 2018 Portland wedding!

Yankun and Ming’s intimate winery wedding was so full of beauty!  This precious couple had such impeccable taste, and I absolutely loved documenting their celebration.  We were blessed with the most glorious day in Seattle!  Yankun and Ming celebrated with their nearest and dearest, and I am so grateful to have been a part of such an amazing team of vendors!  Thank you Yankun and Ming for giving me the honor of photographing  your beautiful day!
