SYD + AARON | MT. TABOR PDX WEDDING

I could never do these two justice by writing a few paragraphs. Knowing Sydney since she was in high school, discussing life and photography with Aaron for 5 1/2  years… there’s too much ground to cover. I have so must respect and love for these two, the way they live their lives, and the creativity they bring into the world. I wanted to show their story as simply as possible, no color, no extra words or hashtags. Just an old fashioned love story. Here’s to a hundred more anniversaries.

ERYN + MICHAEL | LEFTBANK ANNEX WEDDING

Occasionally I would have a senior who talked more about me photographing their wedding day than the session we were currently shooting. I photograph weddings, seniors look at wedding photography, it makes sense. Often it doesn’t happen that way, though. Life moves on, people move states, they meet new photographers and create a bond with them. No harm, no foul. However, when I get the chance to watch these senior girls turn into dynamic women, and be involved in their lives… it’s an immense honor. I count it a double honor-blessing-joy to be present for their wedding, which has apparently been in the works since they were 16. 🙂  From the Bieber poses (mixtape dropping soon) to the laughter during the engagement session, I felt a sense of relief at what an amazing man Eryn chose to be her partner in life. They both chose well.

Having photographed two of the sisters’ weddings now, I feel like I have a good grasp of how special the family is, and how lucky Eryn and Michael are to have each other. I see so much on their faces every time they look at each other. What a joyful couple. What an emotional day. From senior, to engaged, to bride… Eryn’s wedding couldn’t be any more special to me.

A thousand thanks to my friend Daron for shooting with me, and thanks to Leftbank Annex for taking good care of us.

ABBY + CHRIS | HOYT ARBORETUM + ECOTRUST WEDDING

I never went to parties when I was younger. I should clarify that it was probably due to a lack of invitations, not a lack of curiosity. This wedding reception felt a lot like what I imagined a good party must be like. The connection between friends, the music, the laughter… it was glorious. Wedding receptions are often my highlight of the entire day, and I see why people love parties so much. The sense of belonging alone is intoxicating, especially when combined with actual intoxication  😉  I often watch the bride to see her reaction to all the fun being had, and the combination of pride and relief is incredibly sweet. Brides often spend a year planning for their day, and the pressure for everyone to JUST HAVE A GOOD TIME can be overwhelming, for some. When it all comes together, it’s absolute magic.

It’s ironic that I’m now a bit of a professional party-attender. Who would have guessed?  Granted, I am there as an observer, rather than a participant… but if I’m being honest, that’s my best case scenario for social gatherings, anyway. Abby and Chris, I hope your life together is as great a party as the wedding was.
