Saturday was the most beautiful Eugene day to celebrate Austin and Donna’s marriage. The reception took place at the pavilion down the road from the main winery. It was quiet, private and had the most amazing views of the vineyards and King Estate tasting room and barreling room. Great food, delicious cake (really, really delicious… I had two pieces), dancing and toasts. Austin, Donna and their little boy Alex are such a sweet family… I look forward to finishing up the editing and posting the pictures. In the mean time, here’s one of my favs that we shot before they were announced to their guests. Enjoy.

Kerry is one of my very best friends.  Last March I was flattered to be asked to photograph her wedding reception at the Columbia Gorge Hotel and ceremony at Mt. Tabor park in Portland.  The occasion was beautiful and packed with love, family and close friends.  Last week we got together to take a few maternity photos…. she’s 8 months pregnant and looking amazing!  Some of the pictures you couldn’t even tell she was pregnant.  I am so happy for my dear friend Kerry and can’t wait to meet my little niece next month.  xoxo

 

 

I have known Kerry since we were in middle school.  We’ve been through many ups and downs during the 20 years of friendship.  This is by far the best UP and they have many reasons to be extra happy this Month.  Kerry and Chris are getting married on March 30th at the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River and I’m thrilled to be taking their wedding photos.

Last October, the exact week before storm Sandy, my best friend and I went to NYC for the first time.  We stayed 5 nights at the Jane Hotel which at first seemed like we walked into our own little Saturday Night Live skit but in fact turned out to be the best choice for two girls on a budget.  The room was 50sf, had two bunks with crunchy mattresses and communal bathrooms.  But when you’re in NYC, and you’re out from dusk to dawn exploring the amazing city you don’t need anything more.  We had the best time.  This adventure was unforgettable fun.  We rented a car and drove out to Montauk, took a pedi cab through Central Park, saw Jimmy Fallon twice, walked the Highline and explored the Grand Central Station.  Plus much more fantastic memories.  Best. Trip. Ever.
