I love that Maria received her bouquet from all the women there. As she walked down the aisle each woman gave her one tulip, by the time she reached Shane she had a beautiful tulip bouquet!

Yet another reason to love public transportation! The Tri-Met bus came by and blew Maria's dress into the sun. How perfect!

I love doing this shot! The bride's heels have to be thin enough for the rings to slip onto.

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of shooting Maria and Shane's wedding at The famous Portland Rose Garden and Oba! in Portland Oregon. Not only was this couple hot, so was the day! Reaching highs of 95 degrees, the sun was shining for Maria and Shane! Maria and Shane both work at Adidas as designers even though they met in NY on an internship with Fisher Price toys. This couple is so in love and super creative! They made their own stencil for the champagne flutes and etched all of them together! Maria looked absolutely stunning in her BCBG MaxAzria gown. Her hair was done by Molly at Dosha Salon.. I love Aveda!

What's really great about Maria and Shane's wedding is that SO much family came into Portland for this momentous occasion. Maria's whole family came in from Brazil and France, Shane's entire family drove from Ohio! Now that's LOVE!

Thank you Maria and Shane! Thank you Maria and Shane's family and friends! I am honored to have been invited to share in this special day and I hope you like the sneak peek!

The photos are amazing!!! We can't wait to see the rest. Jessica, everyone raved about what a great job you did that day! The pictures tell a beautiful story, and we are so happy we will always have these to remember our wedding day.
At the wedding it felt like you were a part of the family, it was like having a good friend shoot our wedding.
We are so glad we found you!
Looking forward to seeing the rest!
-Maria and Shane

Jessica, I've been a blog stalker for a while (teehee) and this wedding has just totally blown me away. Your photos are absolutely stunning - incredibly creative, really unique, and totally capture the mood and energy of the day. I fell in love with each of the portraits - I can't believe how creative you are! Definitely inspiring, and I will DEFINITELY be taking notes for my next wedding.
