kelsey + ryan | puerto vallarta destination wedding

When Kelsey + Ryan called and asked to bring me along to their destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, I think I almost jumped through the phone to say yes. A photographer's dream! But even more than that, getting to work with this loving, positive and enthusiastic couple was more than I could have asked for. Their families completely embraced Ali and I and showed us what the true meaning of love is. They said their "I do's" on the beach and danced the night away through sunset. Just wait 'til you scroll down and see those glowing dancing photos, I wish we could fly back and do it all over again. Thank you Kelsey + Ryan, I wish you the best!

native styled shoot | tyler rye workshop

I've blogged before about one of the shoots we had at Tyler Rye's Zion Workshop last fall at sunrise, but this shoot took a special place in my heart at sunset as the last shoot in our schedule. It was styled as a Native shoot with all kinds of goodies. We drove up to a cliff in the area and had to use ladders to get up and down from the location. We photographed as the sun went down and this real-life couple gave us stunning looks to shoot. The best part? We all got to sit around and dine on the delicious spread that Forever More Events had styled for us. It was a farewell to remember, and the photos still blow me away.

blakely + brandon | oregon gorge engagement

A few weeks ago, Blakely + Brandon joined me for an adventurous trip out to Rowena Crest in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. I say adventurous not because of the hike (we drove all the way up), but because of the insane winds! Luckily these two were up for the breezy temps and oh my goodness you guys, the wind added so much drama. I was loving it. Their wedding day is September 2nd here in Portland and I just can't wait to work with them again. Congrats on the engagement you two!

It's already May! Which means it's basically October... just kidding. But when it reaches May, I feel like time flies and before we know it, it's almost Christmas. Anyone else feel that way? Well, cheers to a successful and fun summer everyone!
