Engagement shoot! 📸 @le_karina
The name’s [last name], [first name] [last name]. Just a little joke ☝️🎥 You can see the droplets rain 💧. No water can erode these two’s spirits. Not on the day of their wedding!
If you’re expecting more than 100 guests, we love the idea of adding a receiving line into your timeline. Typically done after the ceremony, guests line up and quickly say “hello” and “congratulations” to the bride and groom. This gives you the perfect opportunity to connect with all of your guests! 🙌😁 . . . #weddingplanner #weddingplanning #weddingtips #weddingtip #weddingstyle #weddingstylist #weddingcoordinator #weddingcoordination #weddingdesign #weddingdesigner #weddingchicks #portlandweddingphotographer #pnwwedding #portlandwedding #portlandbride #oregonweddingphotographer #pnwedding #oregonwedding #oregonbride #oregonbridemag #portlandbrideandgroom #pdxwedding #seattlebride #outdoorwedding #mountainwedding #receivingline

While editing weddings, when photos like this appear I can’t stop laughing. I mean, doesn’t every guy smell each other’s new shoes?? I think it’s definitely just a guy thing because my boys and husband do the same thing.
Do you receive our weekly florals? Send yourself or boo thang something every or every other Monday.
Absolutely obsessed with these florals, and with this girl. One of the best things about our job is that we meet new people all the time. When a new bride begins their planning journey with us, we get such a unique opportunity to become friends for long after the wedding planning stage. Planning a wedding is such an intimate time in someone’s life, and to get to be there with you for everything, is something I never tire of. It’s actually an honor. Choose a planner with a personality that you mesh well with, and who knows, you may have a new friend! This girl is one of our favorites ❤️ . . . . . . .

GUYS!! I. Just. Blogged. (Link in bio). I’m blowing my own mind over here. This year has been insanely wild (in all the best ways of course, but still very very wild). My focus has really been on my clients who have booked me and making sure they get the best possible experience. But that means that showcasing my work on my website and social media has taken a back seat. And man it feels so good to get this shoot out there because it’s one of my favorites from this year. I’ve got so much more coming your way when I can find more blogging time. But for now, I hope you guys enjoy this shoot as much as I do!
Sassy bride. That #flawless makeup was done by @goldenbabyfox and hair color and updo by @damngerine these ladies helped me feel ultra gorgeous and also a little more chill on our big day. Thank you!! 💖💜🖤#pdxwedding #hairandmakep #flawless #portlandbride #10132018 #jivinwiththejameses #mrandmrsjames2018
Your thoughts influence your feelings and your feelings influence your actions. Eventually your actions become your results. . . . So in the end, it’s all about mindset. 💫 . . . Ive been listening to a new podcast that is all about mindset. It’s called The Life Coach School!! SO good, you should check it out!!
I love you, I know. One of my brides back in September said that her groom and her were not super sappy. So finding a quote that fit them was hard to land on. . . Luckily both of them shared a love for Star Wars! Such a beautiful quote from something they both enjoy. . . I was even more excited about this sign knowing that she loved pretty florals. A girl after my own heart for sure ✨🌿😍

Alea and Andy had to scramble to move their wedding at the last minute from the Gorge to Sauvie Island due to last summer's fires. 🔥 then, when we were taking portraits after the ceremony it started to rain. ☔️ but none of that stopped them from having the best day ever. 💃💞🕺
Spending the day talking tablescapes + pretty things and meeting the amazing girls at the @styledyou_ workshop! We already know we love them all and are so excited for the next two days 🖤 • • • Photo: @karraleighphoto // Workshop: @styledyou_ // Dress: @ruedeseinebridal // Stylist: @maeandco_creative • • • • • • • • • #gypsybride #elopementcollective #bohobride #weddingphotomag #junebugweddings #oregonbride #austinbride #austinflorist #portlandflorist #pdxbride #portlandbride #texasbride #indiewedding #pnwedding #florist #weddingflorist #adventurebrides #radlovestories #justalittleloveinspo #goodseedfloral #styledyouworkshop #styledyouCO #styledyouretreat2018
My grocery haul for the week!! 🙌🏼 . . . I typically get the same thing every week for the staples in our food plan. I stick to the big food groups—veggies, fruit, protein, carbs and healthy fats! With all of my workouts I am given a grocery list of the most nutrient dense food of these food lists and I pick and choose from there!! Super easy and super simple! 👌🏼 . . . And a grocery store pro tip for you guys! Stick to the outside of the store, this is where all of the fresh produce and meats are. And that’s really all you need! 🙌🏼 . . . Check out my stories to see exactly what I got this week! 👌🏼
Two years ago today we helped these two wonderful souls tie the knot in their charming backyard in NE Portland.💞Their annual cider pressing turned into a surprise WEDDING for their guests when our flash mob broke out in the crowd. Everyone was surprised and elated. After 40+ years together, they finally made it official. What a very special moment to share with them. Happy anniversary Sue & Benita! Wishing you many more years of happiness & love!❤️❤️❤️#truelove #happyanniversary #pdxflashmob

We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust. ― David Levithan . . .

I thought of how much they all wanted to be free; how they went mad wanting their freedom; I began to wonder whether it was I that was mad because I was happy to be bound; whether I was alone in knowing that I could not live without the clamour of the voices within me. -Amitav Ghosh . . . .

Holy smokes guys!! I was not ready for that workout! . . . I finished Phase (Month) 1 of 80 DO last week and forgot that the workouts change order this Phase. So I thought today was Booty day but it was Cardio Core!! For a split second I thought of switching it up but snapped out of it because I know the order is there for a reason and I can’t just do what is convenient to me. I need to push and challenge myself to make progress. And that is with anything in life. . . . Playing it safe and easy isn’t going to get you anywhere and you likely won’t be happy because of it. So push beyond your comfort zone and GET IT DONE!! 💪🏼 You can do it, I promise 💕 . . . This is what the women in my current bootcamp are learning right now. One posted that she lifted heavier then she ever thought she could and she said it was the best workout yet!! How badass is that?! . . . My next group starts next Monday!! Message me and I can get you plugged in!! 🙌🏼
Just sitting over here dreaming of big rocks and perfect little boxes.
Some people snuggle up with a mug of coffee, I snuggle up with a glass of my liquid gold ⚡️🙌🏼 . . . I have my fluffiest robe on, my heated blanket and my preworkout and I am content as can be. If you don’t have this preworkout in your life you need it. You all probs think I’m crazy but I’m serious!!! It tastes delicious, is all natural, and doesn’t make me jittery!! Win win win! 👊🏼
I never fully realized having kids meant I would need to take a good, hard look at myself 🍃 I’m teaching these little people how to behave, how to treat others, how to live. They’re listening to what I say but more impacting, what I DO 🍃 These last couple weeks I’ve been smacked over the head about my own behavior and tendencies because I’m seeing them lived out in my children. Whether it’s learning the proper way to replace toilet paper or even the countenance on my face. It’s forcing me to change because, well, you lead by example 🍃 To be quite honest, it’s been a very hard couple weeks for me as I examine myself and what needs to change. And while this is a painful season, I’m thankful for it. I want to you encourage you and remind you that all things that are hard or painful are worthwhile because they are growing us into someone better than who we were before 🍃 So if you’re struggling right now, keep your head up. Look to Jesus and to the hope of what’s to come when you’ve finished this season 🍃 . . . . #letsbereal #lifeishard #butlifeisgood #jesusistheanswer #communityovercompetition #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #keepyourheadup #staypositive #thatmomlife #momlife #motherhoodrising #lovemychildren #parentlife #parenting #weddingindustry #portlandweddingphotographer #portlandwedding #papersuite #weddinginvitations #textiles #portlandbride #oregonweddingphotographer #oregonbride #oregonwedding #pnwedding #pnwlife
Floral appreciation post! 🌸 This gorgeous bouquet by @smallyardflowers is truly a work of art 💐 #weddinginspo #weddingbouquet #flowerpower #pdxwedding #portlandbride #unionpine photo: @annacaitlinphotography
I can’t help but love all of these dark and gothic vibes around this time of year... totally not my normal style but once October hits I’m all about it! 🖤🖤🖤 We’re just a week out from Halloween... holy smokes! Does anyone have fun plans? Or fun costumes? I want to hear details! 🎃 My daughters are going to be Anna and Elsa. I wanted it to be a family costume but Kristoff costumes are like $90 and that’s just not happening haha. 📷: @ashleycookphoto
They have matching coordinate tattoos from where they first met and they both have equal sign tattooed for LGBTQ rights. Britnee's is only colored in on one side because she said that we aren't fully there yet. I thought that was so accurate. There is more work to be done and sometimes tattoos are talking points and bring awareness. #equityvsequality mmayphoto.com . . . . . . . #junebugweddings #weddingphotographer #oregonweddingphotographer #portlandweddingphotographer #portlandphotographer #pdxbridal #oregonbridemag #madelynmayphotography #wedventuremag #exploregon #nwweddings #mthoodweddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddingideas #oregonweddingvendors #weddingphotomag #portlandbride #pnwphotographer #pinterest #adventurousphotographer #radstorytellers #destinationweddings #wanderingweddings #weddingphotography #engaged #arizonaweddingphotographer #travelingweddingphotographer #twitter #elopementphotographer
We're happy to announce the beautiful Bailey and her bridesmaids were a recent feature in @seattlebridemag ! We love a when a wedding is a family affair, and this one was no exception.

I said to Bailey, you guys are up for a mild adventure, right? Let’s just say I closed the move rings on my iWatch hiking in and out of here, but it was so worth it. Thankful for clients like @bai__ + @jakehev who say “Hell yeah!” to my ideas 🙌🏻 MUAH @maliajartistry
I tweaked this bouquet more times than I’d like to admit (and this wasn’t even the finished product) but it was one of my favorites this year for sure 💜 • • • • • #pnwelopement #portlandbride #pdxbride #bridalbouquet #radlovestories #adventurecouple #elopementcollective #oregonbride #bohobride #floraldesign #weddingflorist #vancouverwaflorist #twinvinesfloral #elopementlove #fallvibes #moodywedding #moodybouquet

Now that my schedule is easing up I think it’s time for some new headshots! I mean, I got a haircut, new fanny pack and more black outfits since this lovely, sweaty July wedding day 🙈Thanks for capturing me in the moment @anikoproductions !
Izzy & Tyler // Oh how I love a good Black and White photograph. I think because it's fall I'm more drawn to the moodiniess and contrasts. Happy Tuesday. 😀 PS. Go visit my blog, there's a Roche Harbor goodie that I blogged last night.
Got holiday dinner parties planned? I will need to start thinking about mine since we now have a proper place to host one. One thing is for sure, we got placesetting and food/dessert displays covered. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographer @Simply.splendid Stylist, Design and Coordinator @tasteofsara Rentals and co-stylist @vintagemingle Venue @theportlandstudio Chairs @partyplacepdx Cake @dreamcakespdx Signage @lettersanddust
No words. I’m obsessed. When I saw this one while editing I immediately thought Briana & Garret need to use this one for their engagement photo! 😍 not to mention that ring?! 😍👌
Three things you’d never guess about choosing a wedding photographer: 1️⃣ Be sure you LIKE your wedding photographer and feel comfortable around him/her! Most brides don’t know before the wedding day, but you’re likely to spend more time with your photographer than your new hubby. (Like the first 2-4 hours for getting ready Photos!) 2️⃣ Experience matters. Not just because “their photos look better” or “they know how to pose” but because an experienced WEDDING photographer has seen many family dynamics and has ran through similar time lines 20+ times over. We know dress bustles like the back of our hands when your MOH forgets what she learned in the fitting. We know little things that have worked for previous couples so well and will have valuable insight when you’re unsure. If your senses are high, you’ll feel when your photographer is not confident or nervous. Confidence and comfort (emotions that are likely to rub off on you) will emit from a photographer who is comfortable at weddings. 3️⃣ When the wedding is over, cake is gone, hair and makeup showered off, flowers wilting; brides anxiously await their photos. Beyond your new spouse, the photos are what will be left of the best day ever. Think twice when you want to cut from your photography budget or if your dream photographer is a couple hundred out of plans. Do some shifting. In the end, it’s all you’ll have left for daily (and generational) reflection.
👰🏻Wedding hair, done by me last Saturday! I just love this brides sense of style. 😍 Side note: this beauty’s hair doesn’t hold curl very well, so I used my @balmainhaircouture Texturizing salt spray (that I got in my goodie bag from a recent class). The waves held up all night and it gave the hair texture as well as shine. I sprayed each section with the salt spray, brushed and curled it. After curling it, I brushed it again to smooth it and then put a few defining curls for a pop, on the top of her hair! I think I’m obsessed and plan on carrying it at Mali salon. It also smells divine! 💐

I am SO thankful that I get to come home to you every night and that privilege doesn’t escape me. . . . Riley and I did two years of long distance in vet school and it was tough. We were in different time zones which made phone calls and FaceTime hard and I was super busy with school so some days we didn’t get to talk much. We learned a lot about each other and preserved and are stronger because of it! . . . So if any of you are in a long distance relationship know that it’s temporary and you will get through it. It’s hard but oh so worth it!! 💕
You will fall in love with this real local couple and their gorgeous intimate home wedding. Coordinated by @bridalblissnw and photographed by @honeysucklephoto...the entire vendor team was on point and clearly chosen for good reason. Shannon & Joe (and their children) could not be any cuter! Congratulations to them. We are honored to share their beautiful story.

It rained for most of the hour and a half we had set aside for portraits with the beautiful landscape and views of Maui from the Kamehameha Golf Club. I could tell Chelsea was really bummed, she chose this venue specifically for the views after all. Just as we were running out of time, the rain slowed to a drizzle then stopped altogether, we ran outside with an umbrella we no longer needed then suddenly the clouds parted and I saw the sun illuminate the city in the distance and the clouds start turning pink. They parted just for you, Chelsea. 💕
“Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God’s greatest gifts. It involves many things, but above all the power of going out of one’s self and appreciating what is noble and loving in another.” -Thomas Hughes Courtney + Daniel’s July 2018 wedding.
