portland downtown

kristi & matt

july 17th, 2010
these two picked a perfect day and beautiful locations. downtown outside the eastland park hotel proved to be a lot of fun for taking photos of the guys. i love the cathedral where they were married. it is an amazing portland landmark. after the ceremony we went to spring point light in south portland to do some shots and it was gorgeous blue skies for us!

matt's work has to do with trains and he was really interested in doing some photos with trains in some way. so i went before the wedding and scouted out a spot where we could sneak into a train yard discreetly. it turned out to be a lot of fun and i am so glad they were up for something really different.

back at the eastland ballroom was dinner and dancing. the room was beautiful and they did a great job with everything, but especially the flambe' dessert which is a great 'show'.

thank you to kristi and matt for making the day so great. you were both so sweet, laid back, up for whatever i asked you to do, and a lot of fun to be around!

dom & selena engagement session

holy adorable couple batman! have i mentioned lately that i love my job? (:

we started at arabica...one of my favorite coffee shops. thank you for letting us hang out and take over your shop.

these two were so cute and such troopers...we were out in the old port on a day when it was 25 degrees, but felt colder to me! they were all love and happiness despite the cold. i can't wait to see them all dressed up on the wedding day.

amy & jarod

here are the latest engagement photos from good ol' downtown portland. that's one thing i love about this city...it may be small, but it is so visually interesting. i always find great backdrops. and as i always say "it never hurts to have beautiful people to photograph"! amy & jarod are just toooo cute. sorry guys. you are. can't wait till the wedding! they have the best spot on the water...right in the middle of downtown and the reception will be at rira the irish pub. such a great idea. and a thank you to vignola (amy says they have the best pizza in town) for letting us use your window seats for some photos!
