I'm just going to say it: I love a no frills, no bullshit wedding. Cristina and Noah do too, which is why they came to me when they wanted a photographer at their courthouse wedding in Hillsboro, Oregon just outside of Portland. It always blows me away how much emotion and heart is felt on the day of an intimate elopement or small celebration, compared to an all-day affair. There's low stress, which leaves more room for laughter, happy tears, relaxed portraits, and lots of quality family time, which is what Cristina & Noah had at the local pub shortly after these pictures were taken. I quickly learned over coffee a few months ago that these two are so sweet and so happy together and that this wedding is just a small moment in time compared to the big life they will share together. I feel incredibly grateful they chose me. Congratulations guys!
If you are having a backyard wedding, elopement, or intimate gathering of your own and would like a photographer there, send me an email! I offer an hourly rate for these types of occasions that includes digital files and a set of prints.
