Matt + Bethany: A Love Story

Adam + Jackie: A Love Story

Jackie and Adam celebrated their April wedding in a serene and intimate little venue. It was our first time photographing at the Hopkins Demonstration Forest in Oregon City, and we fell in love! The weather could not have been more perfect (it doesn't happen often in April in Oregon!). The theme of their wedding was semi-rustic with a dash of sparkle and shades of purple. They chose to let the incredible Oregon backdrop do all the talking, and it was a great decision. The sweeping views and tall trees and sounds of nature all contributed to the perfect wedding. Our favorite part of the day? Watching Adam serenade his new bride during the reception! Swoon! What bride doesn't dream of a romantic moment like that?

Five on Friday: He put a ring on it

Its Friday! Woohoo!

Right after December, February is the next most popular month to get engaged, and we are loving seeing all these beautiful engagement stories pop up in our news feeds! You'll also notice that rings aren't the only thing being featured below in our "5 on Friday", let's hear it for plaid! It's not a trend in Oregon, it's part of our lifestyle! If you got engaged this month, we want to hear about it!

All you need is love...

And a little sunshine! We love when our couples opt for a late Fall or early winter engagement shoot, and we love it even more when the weather cooperates and we get gorgeous light like this! Tessa and Matt braved the chilly temperature and we lucked out with dreamy sunlight. We can't wait for their July wedding!
