LOOK AT THESE CUTIES!! Last nights session was literally so so so so fun. Not only was it 65 degrees out, but I got to spend my evening with the sweetest people and we took some really lovely photos of them being adorable...it was hard to put down my camera!! 😂
I’ve died and gone to zircon heaven. My heart is literally racing looking at these pics, as I don’t think I have ever experienced such a beautiful ring. This 14 CARAT (HUGE) zircon is set in the most lovely and perfect late Art Deco era palladium setting, with delicate diamond shoulders, and the clincher is that it is hallmarked for Zell. For us Pacific Northwest ladies, this is a piece of our history, and it is so very rare to be able to specifically trace a PNW origin of a piece of vintage jewelry.
Known up and down the west coast, when the Zell Brothers opened their eponymous store in 1912, it was *the* place to buy your jewels. Considered a “carriage” jeweler - the store catered to the “carriage trade” - those lucky families with their own carriages😊, until it was purchased by Zale’s in the late 70s.
Portland is not known for its riches, so it is interesting to ponder what Portlander of import purchased this very substantial piece of jewelry. Perhaps someone we have all heard of? ⚡️
This zircon color is extremely rare in this size, and is the most saturated and significant zircon stone I have ever seen. It is a deep greenish blue and glows intensely from within. The camera can’t convey this amazing saturation. Zircon is one of the oldest minerals on earth, with most specimens older than the moon, and has a brilliance and fire that matches diamond.
Although this piece is not inexpensive, it is the sort of piece that might bring tears to your eyes (if you are like me). DM for pricing and swipe left for a lot more pics and video. I am not sure how long this piece will be available, and I would be sooo happy to have it go to someone that might share pics every now and then 💙.
Last night these two wonderful people said "I do" at the most amazing location with incredible mountain views. On their 8th dating anniversary they became husband and wife. Their vows were the sweetest and I am so happy for Alexandra & Cory. I hope they have so much fun in Costa Rica!

Brides, grooms and flower lovers! We are no longer taking events for this September...we’re totally booked up! And the rest of our fall/winter calendar is booking up fast. We’re only able to take on a few more weddings or large events for 2018. So if you’re a last minute planner you better get on it! Xo
If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. -> Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing. / Will Rogers / This week has been hard, you guys. I’m not gonna try to hide that, but I’m not going to go into all the details because hey, let’s be honest, it can be easy to use social media to one-up others in both accomplishments and failures. And I don’t want to do that here. What I want to do is remind you to believe in yourself. Believe in this beautiful, wonderful, hard, seemingly impossible dream you have. Believe that you have what it takes to make it. Believe that you’re worth investing in. Because you know what? You are. 💜

To all my brides and correspondences, if you haven’t noticed... I’ve been taking a bit of a sabbatical from social media 🤗
After my week traveling to SoCal, I became the most sick I’m pretty sure I’ve ever been! On top of still recovering from a surgery earlier this year, healing has been sluggish. Pretty sure it was a massive sign to -sloooow doooown-
And as much as I would love to dedicate all my hours to beauty and amazing bride’s, I also have a very full-time day job!
I would love and appreciate your grace this week as I work hard to respond to emails, book trials, and send out contracts. And from this point on I will no longer be responding to DM’s, if you would like to reach out, my email is linked ♡
With that said, I’ll be continuing my time to disconnect...
I’ll be focusing on locking in my year and giving all my attention and upmost love & support to my brides to be, and honestly... I need this time to get my mind and body healthy and strong for you all before my wedding season starts!
I’m craving to fall into the restoration of inner expression -reading, drawing, music, holistic living and practicing on honing my skills- Simply put, I want to get back to what inspires me organically and spend the sweet little moments I have with my friends here that I don’t see enough of and getting myself back into Church.
A lot ( Like I mean mega) is going to be happing this year as I’ll be pushing myself creatively to find the platform I want to claim as my own, collaborating with those who inspire me and carving out my name in this industry. This place is my passion, my work and my heart... and I need to care for and love it as such.
I think you’ll see that with this time to myself, God, friends & family and my bride’s... it will all be well worth it 🧡 I can’t wait for what’s to come.
PS - how about this boho updo on the forever babe and bride to be @prencessmaria ?! Such a fun shoot with @alittlegrace.alittlelace !
All my love, & always more xx...

I love the trial run appointments and fine tuning details
I have a thing for pink lately (duh #pinkhair ). I’ve literally never been the *pink kind of girl*, but this spring it’s been a magnet. Hoping the pink/blush wedding trend continues this summer. I won’t be sad about it. Are there any trends you photogs out there are hoping will fade? Make a come back? I want to know 🤗 Film lab @photovisionprints | Florals @barbs_flowers | Venue @josephjanewinery
It's all in the details 💕 And sometimes you gotta go just a bit over board with them. From custom ice cubes from @pdxice and custom stir sticks from @the_rocshop these cocktails from @vibrant_table were a huge hit. Thanks @awepdx for convincing me ice cubes were a must have 😉 📸: @shelleymariephoto
