liz + david | idaho winery wedding

This dreamy setting for Liz + David's wedding took place at David's family vineyard in his hometown of Lewiston, Idaho. Liz wore a veil that was handmade by her mother, and rain clouds rolled through in the morning that cleared just in time for "I do's". This couple was one of the sweetest to work with, every story shared about their relationship spoke highly of their love and respect for each other and those around them. Oh, and they surprised all guests by arriving to the reception in style - in a flashy helicopter! I truly wish this couple the best in their next chapter.

andrell + kyle | southeast portland wedding

I knew this would be a fun wedding to shoot after spending some time with the adorable couple last September shooting their engagement photos out in the gorge. The Evergreen was such a classic and beautiful venue for their wedding day, and the sunset we were lucky enough to catch on the water made for a stunning backdrop. I'm always a fan of a groom in a tux, ladies am I right? I'll let the photos speak for themselves, vendors linked on the bottom!

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.
