Sending love to you all as we transition to fall. Transitions are beautiful and wonderful and challenging, and I’m feeling the impact of less vitamin D in my life. It’s really hard to share about mental health challenges publicly (especially when you’re in the midst of them), so I just wanted to take a moment and say to anyone who needs to hear it - You’re seen. You’re loved. You’re doing fine. Be gentle with yourself. Xo .

Do you all remember a couple weeks ago when I was flailing with my schedule? I was pleading for just a couple more days to be added to September, preferably somewhere in the September 14, 15, or 16 range? Well, here we are at September 19 and I made it...I delivered a bajillion senior galleries, three weddings, watermelon minis, three corporate shoots, and even shot 8 more sessions. I designed and printed some senior magazines and albums and I even made a little photo gift for the poor victims of SliceGate 2018. Don't go thinking that all my sessions are delivered...ha! No...I just put myself in an impossible timeline position this last month and somehow, by the grace of a patient husband, understanding child, and no sleep for the last week, managed to get it all done on time. I still have 30 sessions in the queue (including this GORGEOUS wedding from 9/1) but they'll make their timelines. Because, here I am on a Wednesday without a photoshoot on the calendar for a full three days! Those three day gaps are all it takes for me to stay on track. Annnyways, the point is, rest-assured dear readers. Sneaks will now be coming at you with more consistency...at least for now...until I completely overdo it again in approximately 8 days. 😜 Makeup by the amazing @beauty_by_kristen_nicholle Hair by the incredible @ashlie.marie541 #kelseajoannphotography #justalittleloveinspo #nwweddings #firstsandlasts #pacificwonderlandweddings #dirtybootsmessyhair #northwed #oregonbride #cakeandlaceblog #pnwedding #kelseajoannweddings #itstartedwithyes #junebugweddings #greenweddingshoes #smpweddings #100_layercake #authenticlove #radlovestories #inspiredbythis #oregonweddings #offbeatbride #oarsandbeanies #thatsdarling #thatoregonlife #pnwisbest #bridalmusings #theknotweddings #oregonweddingphotographer #loveandwildhearts #huffpostweddings

Guys, married couple sessions need to be more of a thing. Even if your kids are running around like crazy in the background, taking the time to snap a few pics with your partner is SO⠀ IMPORTANT. It’s like an engagement session but wayyyy better because you’re already married. 🙌🏻⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love this snap of two of our college friends down on the Oregon Coast earlier this summer. 💕⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #katiekolbrickphotography #seattleweddingphotographer #tacomaweddingphotographer #waweddings #nwweddings #pnwwedding #pnwedding #cascadeweddings #theknot #marriedlife #aisleperfect #huffpostido #stylemepretty #radlovestories #theknot #weddingwire #loveauthentic #relationshipgoals
Bruce & Neny married in a lovely, intimate ceremony at Bend’s downtown historic Catholic Church.

We love this time of year and all the rich colors that come with it, but we aren’t lying when we say we have a MAJAR CRUSH on the soft pastel colors of this bouquet!

What are your kiddos going to be for Halloween this year? We have a fun surprise planned!
Do you know I wrote some of my instagram headings at 6am (3am my time), jet lagged, exhausted, and kind of overall gross? Haha. Work never stops for me and sometimes inspiration for shoots or social media comes in the wee hours of the morning. I think it’s funny some people assume I’m behind a desk all the time in a nice outfit! Nope. When inspiration comes, I take it! When do you feel most inspired? It’s not always easy. I wanna hear about it below! . . . #gracehelenphotography #oregonwedding #oregonengagement #pnwweddingphotographer #oregonengagementsession #NWweddings #oregonweddingphotographer #pnwedding #portlandwedding #destinationweddingphotographer #oregonbride #portlandweddingphotographer
When a guy proposes to his girl, and asks afterwards, what should they do now....and her response is "Let's go finish watching the KU game!" - it's obviously an instant reminder that you're a lucky guy who just made a fantastic decision! Angel is a keeper for Kyle.....and Kyle for Angel, likewise!⠀ ⠀ ALSO....it might be almosttttt Fall, but I am loving all the gorgeous flowers that KC is offering up these days!
I’ve been a miner for a heart of gold.
I choose you. And I'll choose you over and over and over. Without pause. Without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I'll keep choosing you. Bride: @kendalljolma18 Venue: #summitgrovelodge Location: #ridgefieldwa

Who knew that kody could river-dance? I mean I knew Cyd had it in her.. but dang, this groom is killing it in the dance department. 2018 River dancing duo of the year.
when tattoos take an image from one level to a whole other one 🖤 guys, these two and their love story and all my fave images from their engagement session are all on the blog this morning!

Wedding days are tiring, and looking this gorgeous is definitely draining, don't forget to plan a snack break during your day, or have McDonalds delivered! First meal as husband and wife ✔️
OMG! I had so much fun at The Vanvouver Wedding Showcase tonight! It was great to tour the beautiful @creeksideestate venue and chat with fellow wedding profs @privychambers @yourbigdaycamas @littlephotobusofportland @weddingllamas @classycamelids @momandicakery and finally a great big thank you to Melodi of @1000storiesevents and @brickstoneballroom for her continued commitment to the @vancouverweddingshowcase and all the wonderful wedding vendors out there in and around Vancouver, WA. Keep up the great work, Melodi! . . . . . #weddingprofs #eventprofs #weddingplanners #weddingplanning #weddingplanner #weddingvendor #swwashington #vancouverwa #vancouverwashington #thecouve #weddingshow #weddingevent #weddingshowcase #weddingideas #weddinginspiration #weddinginspo #instawedding #pdxwedding #nwweddings #pnwwedding #portlandbride
During the father-daughter dance, Tianna’s abuela made her way over to David and started to pull him onto the dance floor. At first he tried to politely decline, as to keep all of the focus on Tianna and her father. Abuela insisted, however, and how could David say no?! Before long they were also out on the dance floor, grinning and laughing and spinning around together. Without sharing the same language, they still shared such a joyful connection. These are the little moments that are so worth preserving ❤️ We received the very sad news that Tianna’s abuela passed away this week after a long battle with cancer, and just weeks after these photos were taken. Our hearts are heavy for her family, and we are sending so much love as they navigate the pain of this loss. It is our sincerest hope that these images will help them to feel close to their abuela- and that they will smile every time they are able to relive this adorable unplanned dance.
It’s wedding week for this happy couple. I am so excited their wedding day is almost here. It’s going to be quite the celebration! #fullofsass

Heard something this morning in the @sinclairandmoore workshop that just stuck with me. He was talking about how more often he sees creatives trying to outdo each other via social media rather than just putting focus on serving their clients. This brought me right back to my “why.” We SERVE you, we work for you and that should be a creatives main purpose. We are in the service industry after all ;) Such a good reminder, when it’s so easy to get caught up in these little squares . . . . . . . .

It’s been a few days since we posted and we’re so excited to be back, but also a mini break from caring about the world of Instagram was sooooo nice. We spent time with family, went to the Washington State Fair, ate all the scones, got our caricatures drawn, saw an amazing concert and didn’t work (!!). Feeling refreshed going into the week + excited about our weddings this weekend. ♥️ • • • @peytonrbyford @unioneventco • • • • • • • #adventurouswedding #bohobride #bridalmusings #oregonbride #portlandbride #pnwedding #nwweddings #heyheyhellomay #weddingflorist #huffpostido #oregonflorist #theknot #pursuepretty #beating50percent #stayingido #thebelovedlife #dsfloral #PNWedding #weddingphotoinspiration #bohowedding #indiwedding #brownflowers

This is what teamwork looks like 💚💚💚 Keeping Bramble small enough to be fully hands on and care for each couple in the best way possible, while not overworking myself or pushing the wrong limits is a really tough balance. I want to be there for more couples and create more amazing, unique designs, but I can’t do it alone. 🌿🌿🌿 I’m so thankful for the people who have figured out how to read my mind and make things happen with me, and for the rad floral community we have here with so many florists willing to lend a hand. 🌸🌸🌸 Community over competition is no just a phrase - it’s the most important thing! Thanks to @citrineflora for helping me make so many arrangements, and for @shrekpdx and @zoe_cope_creative for bringing every corner alive. (And we’ve been really missing you @rebekahjule !) And for @sea.of.roses stepping in when we need you! 🙌🙌🙌
Summer is fading, but with that comes another beautiful season with bold, cool tones. #weddingblog #weddingmonths #summer #fall
I live in the most magical and wild place in the ancient juniper and sage forest just far enough away from town where we feel secluded, but close enough to grab take out if we want it. Our nearest neighbors are the great-horned owls and coyotes. It also happens to be a great spot for photo shoots, especially, in the waning light of day. ⠀ photo @dawn_photo // planning &styling @maeandco_creative // dress @aandbe_bridalshop •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #oregonbride #pursuepretty #belovedlife #theknot #NWweddings #thatsdarling #bridalstyle #pnwedding #bridalbouquet #underthefloralspell #PNWedding #weddingphotoinspiration #bridalflowers #bouquetinspo #epicbridalbouquet #bohobride #dirtybootsmessyhair #floraldesigner #ribbons #bendflorist #bendweddings #coutureflowers #inbend #bendoregon #hopsbouquet

Signature cocktails at weddings are a fun and cost-saving alternative to a full bar, and custom names make them even sweeter! @pennedbyalice and I had fun coming up with the names for these cutie custom cocktails. The *Rosy* Gin Fizz is made with @hellacocktailco *rosemary* lemon mixer, @nydistilling gin, and a *rose* garnish to fit with the event’s botanical aesthetic🌹🍾 .

I met @kp.dixon a few years ago at a new job. We hit it off instantly and it was like we had known each other forever. We both loved working with the kids and had similar work styles. When she started dating Sam I remember her coming to work and telling me all about it. SHE WAS STOKED. I remember her feeling so confident that her and Sam were going to be together forever and guess what? They got MARRIED and I had the pleasure of capturing their special day. They are an amazing couple and I can wait to see what adventure they have next. mmayphoto.com . . . . . . . #junebugweddings #weddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #portlandweddingphotographer #portlandphotographer #powercouple #oregonbridemag #madelynmayphotography #wedventuremag #elopements #exploregon #nwweddings #mthoodweddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddingideas #oregonweddingvendors #weddingphotomag #portlandbride #pnwphotographer #pinterest #adventurousphotographer #radstorytellers #destinationweddings #wanderingweddings #weddingphotography #engaged #arizonaweddingphotographer #travelingweddingphotographer #twitter #elopementphotographer

“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.” - Steve Martin 🌝🌚⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was just looking up funny quotes and this was one of the first ones I saw. 😆⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does it have anything to do with this photo? Nope. But I figured you all were getting tired of my “Peonies are LIFE” captions so figured I would change it up a bit. 😅👍🏻⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In other news, I’ve been solo parenting two kids with stomach bugs for the past three days and am going a little nutty. 🤢🤪Ready for a good night sleep and already looking forward to strong coffee tomorrow morning. ☕️⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #katiekolbrickphotography #seattleweddingphotographer #tacomaweddingphotographer #waweddings #nwweddings #pnwwedding #pnwedding #cascadeweddings #weddingwire #theknot #seattlebride #junebugweddings #stylemepretty #aisleperfect #greenweddinghsoes #huffpostido #huffpostweddings #smpweddings #stylemepretty #radlovestories #theknot #weddingwire #loveauthentic #weddingbouquet #weddingbouquetideas #weddingflowers

My couples are literally magic. Megan and Jackson had me over for dinner with their family at the coast, cuddled in a canoe for photos, then took me to their favorite private beach for the sunset! Their entire family literally treated me like a friend and only further convinced me this career is my passion in life. 😭 This shot was completely spontaneous and ended up being one of my favorites from the night! (P.S. @meyer_jax was on TWO seasons of American Ninja Warrior—pretty cool right?!) . . . #gracehelenphotography #oregonwedding #oregonengagement #pnwweddingphotographer #oregonengagementsession #NWweddings #oregonweddingphotographer #pnwedding #portlandwedding #destinationweddingphotographer #oregonbride #portlandweddingphotographer
