harmony + javier: engaged!

Congrats to Harmony + Javier on their engagement! He asked for her hand in marriage while they were traveling abroad, on a picnic, savoring time with each other over good food and a bottle of Prosecco. They wanted to preserve that special memory by weaving it into their engagement shoot. To you both, what a joy it was to witness the laughter and friendship that exists between you two.  Congratulations and I can't wait to document your wedding day. Oh and Javier, thanks for all of the wonderful music!

christine + brad: hitched!

Congratulations to Christine + Brad! With the warmth of the last light of day shining over them, these two said I do. Their celebration took place at a lovely farm in Beaverton with friends, family, and an amazing community of love and support. 
Christine and Brad are special souls. You can tell. In their work and life, they are incredibly giving of themselves to make this world a better, brighter place. Their kindness radiates, and I can say with confidence that they are making a difference. To the newlyweds, thank you for letting me be part of your wedding day. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. And your wedding party? Well, they were an absolute blast and kept me smiling. Here's to many years of happiness and adventure!

polaroid please.

Allow me to introduce my dear friend and colleague, Ann McGarry. 
That's her below with the beautiful camera in her hands.
We are thrilled to introduce a creative collaboration of ours, Polaroid Please, a new and welcome addition to my wedding and portrait packages. All of the photos are created with vintage cameras, creating one-of-a-kind prints. She favors the Polaroid Land Camera, using Fuji film, but keeps her Polaroid Spectra close by her side. Ann worked her magic at a recent wedding with me and I am excited to share with you what she captured from the day. Please, take a look. 

We had so much fun putting this delicate album together. 
Thinking back to their wedding day, we personalized the album by 
carefully choosing a color and style to match the theme of their celebration.
For those of you familiar with the black & white darkroom, seeing these prints holds a similar feeling for me as seeing an image being formed on that blank piece of paper. Cliché as it may sound, I can’t deny that there is a little magic there. There is something about the tangibility of the process and holding a print (and a story) in your hands. I get lost looking through my parents' and grandparents' old photographs and the nostalgia is palpable. With the influx of digital in today's world, I believe prints are easily disregarded. And, just like my love of sending handwritten letters, I refuse to let it die. I must confess, even I need to make more prints.  They are important. With that said, I am delighted to introduce Polaroid Please.

Thank you Ann for your gorgeous work and for diving into this creative endeavor with me.  I am grateful for your time, talent, hard work, creativity and collaborative spirit.
Also, thank you to Alyson for the top photo of Ann. See the polaroids Ann captured from Alyson's wedding on her lovely blog, Unruly Things.
