Niall | Portland Senior Pictures

Niall is a senior at Sunset! We had an awesome time take these pictures at the Hoyt Arboretum and downtown near Water Avenue in Southeast Portland. He’s got to be one of the most photogenic senior guys I’ve ever worked with!

Aranda and Ryan | Lake Oswego Wedding Photography

ArandaRyanWedding-6452-copy.jpg

 

You know how weddings are supposed to be crazy and stressful? Occasionally drama filled?

Well, this one wasn’t.

This was the most relaxed, happy, easygoing, awesome, stress-free wedding day I have ever seen. Ever. End of story.

This is going to sound cheesy, but whatever. It was almost as if the day was just as perfect as the couple themselves. Aranda and Ryan are SO chill. They were so happy to be getting married to each other, and everything else just sort of fell into place with the help of amazing family, friends, and vendors.

It was so refreshing.

It’s easy to get caught up in wedding-day insanity. It’s easy to lose sight of the big picture. But Aranda and Ryan never did. The look on Ryan’s face when he saw Aranda for the first time says it all. The tears streaming down their faces as they said their vows. Heck, even the way they both collectively lost it and did the Harlem Shake like their lives depended on it. They laughed together. They cried together. They were awesome. Their wedding was amazing. I am so happy that I got to be the one to document it!

The day started off with a few photos of some pretty fantastic groomsmen. I mean, really.

After a bit of goofing around, the girls arrived dressed and ready, so Aranda and Ryan did their first look on a dock above the river!

Yes. They gave each other a wedding-day high five. I love them.

From there we continued to take a million pictures of Aranda and Ryan being perfect together, because… well… yeah.

Lexie | Cannon Beach Senior Pictures

Lexie is a beautiful senior at Sunset high school, and she happens to love photography too! She brought along some of her awesome vintage cameras to our photoshoot which started out at Washington Park in Portland and ended at Cannon Beach on the Oregon Coast. The weather could not have been more perfect, and this was honestly one of my most favorite senior shoots that I have ever done.

The Ihdes | Portland Family Pictures

I absolutely love getting to work with this family every year and see how the boys have grown! This year we went to the Jenkins Estate and had an awesome time goofing off around the property. Ryan and Jeannie are actually my accountants as well, so if you happen to need someone, they are amazing at what they do!
