She’s hard to resist isn’t she? This little girl’s eyes are so captivating, and she has a personality to match! Ellie is a sweet, precocious, and very bright little girl. It was so refreshing to stop and explore the city through a little one’s eyes…marveling at the small things, taking in all the sights, giggling and talking all the way.

Favorite picture of the day…love the series of shots too!

I’ll bet the whole city of Portland gets just a bit brighter when Ellie smiles. She knows how to light up a room!

Sharing a sweet moment with Mommy

LOVE it!Thank you for such a great afternoon Ellie! Your sweetness and joy…your spunk and your spark…you are such a gift to your family and friends.

Lacey & Vince – Portland OR Wedding Photography


I love weddings. Every time we get to share in a couple’s special day, I get chills…I smile a little bigger…and yes, I cry…Lacey and Vince’s wedding was no exception. These two have been in love for a long time, and it is clear watching them that they share something special.

Lacey and Vince had a beautiful wedding, laced with elegant and vintage touches. Lacey chose to decorate with a peacock theme, and her father made her this beautiful metal sculpted peacock. It looked almost as amazing as Lacey did that day! (but not quite!)


Lacey’s four sisters were her bridesmaids, and boy, do these ladies know how to have a good time! The bridal room was filled with lots of laughter, inside joking, and lots of love. It was very evident that this is a close family that would do anything for each other. It was a beautiful thing to watch these sisters interact.

I literally cried as a edited this picture…Watching parents with their children on their wedding day gets me every time…

Ah….guy time…

Custom guest book using pictures from our engagement session with Lacey and Vince

Lacey and Vince got married at such a gorgeous venue, The Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom. The ceremony was beautiful.

Absolutely LOVE this shot…LOVE it!

This picture captures the weather that afternoon perfectly, and is one of my favorite shots of the day. The adorable little girl in the picture is also Lacey and Vince’s daughter. =)

I love making the wedding party jump! (And this group, had lots of energy and were more than ready for anything I threw at them!) They were great!

Lacey looked so gorgeous! She reminded me of a vintage pin-up model.

At one point during the reception, ALL of the bridesmaids had suddenly grown mustaches. =) Let’s just say, this family likes to have a good time!

Thank you for letting us share in your day! Blessings to you and your beautiful daughter as you begin your married life together.
