I get asked all the time “When should I take my engagement photos?" And the answer is split up into a couple of parts from a photography standpoint, and from the standpoint of your relationship together. ⠀ 😎⠀ Let me start by saying that there is no right or wrong time to have these photos taken. Some couples will jump to it and have them taken within weeks of the proposal, while other will wait until it gets closer to the actual wedding date. What I personally recommend is having them taken no later than 3 months before the wedding. And that’s due to a few technical things. ⠀ 🤔⠀ First, my session turn around time is generally around 3-4 weeks, however I state that in my busy season it could take up to five. So worse case scenario, you’re less than two months from your wedding and you still have time to share the images, make prints, and prepare them to display at your wedding without the last minute stress. ⠀ 🥂⠀ But if you’re wanting save the dates, invitations, and photos to add to your website, you might want to consider shooting as soon as possible so that, again, you’re not too pressured by time constraints! ⠀ 👍⠀ Lastly, when choosing your ideal engagement date, consider your personalities and environmental surroundings. Are you wanting a warm, glowy sunset at the beach? Well if you’re in Oregon, you might want to wait until May or June. If you want snowy mountain photos, consider a time between early winter and early spring. And of course, if you want roses in your images, you’re going to have to aim to shoot within a short window to get those flowers looking just right.⠀ 💍⠀ I hope this helps you navigate the perfect "when" for your engagement session. Oh, and congratulations!
First Portland wedding of the year! We’d say floating arches and freshly painted photo studios are a great mix and a great way to start off this spring wedding season. . . . #seedsofclay #entrepreneur #girlboss #work #pursuepretty #thatsdarling #flowers #design #creative #nature #pdx #pacificnorthwest #portland #oregon #allthingsbotanical #wedding #decor #dsfloral #spring #season #photostudio #arch #clean #white #minimalism #oregonbride #flowerstagram
Still obsessing over these chairs! @something_borrowed_pdx always pulling out all the stops!
Former brides: now that the wedding is over, is there anything pertaining to photography that you would have liked to have known that you didn't before the wedding day?
These two can’t get enough of them!!!! 💕
I’m having on of those days where nothing goes quite to plan. I got stuck in traffic, I busted a vase, my car started to make a strange noise and emit and odd smell, and my husband just had to drop it at the shop. Usually I’d be irked and anxious, but I’m trying to open my eyes and ears because the universe is very obviously trying to tell me something...SLOW DOWN. Life is going to be a bit crazy this next week so I hear you universe. I hear you. Coordination: @brightcoevents Photography: @kirstenmariephotography Bouquet: @bashandbloom Venue: @withinsodo

"The real measure of our lives may ultimately be in the small choices we make in each and every moment." Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz I had so much fun capturing Caitlin and Jordan's #engagement photos at the @columbiagorgehotelandspa1921 . For this photo I had the two of them go ahead of me and climb up on the rocks. I stayed behind and shot through the bushes to create this shot. I can't wait for this fun couple's wedding next year! * * * * * * * * #shesaidyes #isaidyes #gettingmarried #engagementphotos #futuremrs #engagedlife #heproposed #hoodriverengagementphotographer #oregonengagement #oregonbride #theknot #columbiagorgehotelweddings #gorgebride #gorgewedding #gorgeusphoto #hoodriverweddingphotographer #pnwweddingphotographer #springengagementphotos #springwedding

Today marks 6 months of marriage, and here we are re-enacting our wedding all over again! But this time we took things up a notch. Literally. Like 100+ feet up. 🌊 • I remember trying to imagine what marriage would be like, but I really had no clue until we took the plunge. I‘ve fallen more in love with this guy in the last 6 months than in the 6+ years that I’ve known him, and the best part is, we’ve only scratched the surface! So basically when it comes to weddings, I’m a huge fan. • Also a HUGE shout out to @el_photographs and @martinweddings.co ! Such a incredible couple and a blast to adventure with. 👌🏻

Happy wedding day to these incredible humans!!! @acaciabrinley , it’s been such a blessing and joy getting to know you this past year and a half. I love talking mommyhood with you, and I am so so excited for you, Jairus, and your growing family. We can’t wait to witness you vowing your lives to one another, and even though I’m 37 weeks pregnant, I’m ready to get down on that dance floor and celebrate! Love you guys and couldn’t be happier to spend today with you!!! (Ps. I am NOT their wedding photographer. My husband and I are going as guests! What?!

Happy Saturday. We worked hard to get here, so enjoy!
You want photos that do more than just show you what you look like. You want photos that remind you what it felt like to be in that moment. My sister, Carley told me this was one of her most favorite photos from her and James’ engagement session. I think I know why. I had just asked James to tell her about a time when he was really proud of her. So when Carley sees this photo it’s not just the sweet look James is giving her, it’s the way she feels seen, appreciated, secure and celebrated. And every time she looks at this photo she can feel it all again. I love facilitating these kinds of moments for my clients and delivering something that does more than just shows them what they look like, it celebrates who they are and what they care about most. Which is exactly what we’ll be doing all weekend as these two become one!
That one time I got to make my own bouquet out of some AMAZING freshly picked flowers! To all future brides out there, I recommend getting on YouTube, find a tutorial and make your own. It’s so worth it. 💐 Happy weekend! 📷: @basicallybrandy @brandyjjackson #bridal #florals #spring #wedding #oregonwedding #oregonbride
Teresa already did her makeup beautifully when she enrolled in my class but the difference is still astounding. I have always said my makeup style is “precision”. Here’s what she had to say: “This class taught me more precision, the brushes alone changed my eye makeup, my face is more defined and the colors are less ruddy. And tonight when I tight-lined I didn’t get it on my contacts!!!! 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌” You can order my brushes at squareup.com/store/powderinc Use code “FRIEND” for a discount! Next class will be announced early may! Xo #powderinc #masteryourmakeupwithnicolewagner #oregonbride #portlandmakeupartist
