We learned so much getting to know Erica and Ryan through the process of planning and photographing their Abernethy Center Portland wedding. Their kindness completely took us by storm. All throughout COVID, we had the joy of getting to know them over several video meetings. They demonstrated the most incredible patience and adaptability throughout the entire journey of the unknown. The foundation of their relationship is so solid. They knew that their wedding would be an expression of their growing deep-rooted love.

Days leading up to their wedding they still didn’t know if their venue would have to call it all off. They trusted and embraced whatever they were given. Such a testimony to their characters! These two are mature and ready for what marriage brings. Ready for anything and happy to welcome and celebrate the process. So wise and free.

Such joy poured out of them all day as we were the lucky ones to photograph their beautiful celebration. And… on the exact day of their Abernethy Center Portland wedding, luck arrived. The restrictions for COVID were lifted. For the first time, guests at a wedding were given the option to not have to wear masks. Everyone was liberated! Their day was filled with bright sun and blue skies! Pop the champagne! These two are magic!
