This random door is a great photo prop and I love how it opened to a beautiful flower garden!

I think the image on the right is one of my absolute favorites. It looks fairy tale-esque, don't you think?

Sarah's dance with her dad was so sweet it brought tears to the guest's eyes.. (and mine!).

Wow!


Sarah and Duncan are, simply put, perfect for each other. I had the awesome opportunity to be their photographer on June 7th at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale. Edgefields has a TON of great photo opportunities and Sarah and Duncan really gave me the time to go crazy with some beautiful images all over the estate. Their wedding had a very Portland feel with natural warm tones and a relaxed schedule. Both the ceremony and the reception were held on the grounds of Blackberry Hall, a converted vintage mechanic's garage, which made it fun and laid back for all the guests. The food was killer with a picnic BBQ style buffet including corn on the cob, ribs, potato salad and watermelon! Saint Cupcake made the delicious cupcakes for dessert. Yum! All the guests were wearing smiles the whole night, but I think Sarah wins the "biggest smile" award! Sarah's fun and expressive personality made it easy to capture candids throughout the day. She wore a Mikaella bridal gown from Charlotte's and looked absolutely stunning! The flowers were created by the amazing Anthony at Tommy Luke. Duncan and Sarah are both Doctors and I can see why; they're both very intelligent and care a lot about other people. The party kept kicking on with awesome music, including their first dance to Otis Redding's That's How Strong My Love Is... complete Soul. (Notice the capital "S"? yeowzers!)

Thank you SO much Sarah and Duncan for choosing me to photograph your beautiful wedding. Thanks to all of Sarah and Duncan's family and friends and I hope you all love the sneak peak!
