From the very special 16 weddings we photographed we took 190,315 images and provided 10,515 finished photographs to our fabulous couples. Our year began...

Taylor & Jackson – Timberline

Born in two different countries on two different continents, 9,000 miles apart, from Rwanda to Oregon, Taylor and Jackson found each other. Finding a needle in a haystack IS possible. A special alchemy of friendship in the most unusual combinations united these two. Only something outside of logic could write a story like this. Who would know that in 2009 in Northern Rwanda, at a school Jackson wasn't initially assigned to, he would find his best friends who would help shape the rest of his...

Radhika & Shilpin – Portland Art Museum

Radhika & Shilpin – Portland Art Museum

Radhika and Shilpin’s wedding was pretty much a dream within a dream. Pinks that ignite your eyes and blues that make you drown in wonder. “Indians are the Italians of Asia and vice versa.  Every man in both countries is a singer when he is happy, and every woman is a dancer when she walks to the shop at the corner. For them, food is the music inside the body and music is the food inside the heart. ‘Amore’ or ‘Pyar’ makes everyone a poet.” – Gregory David Roberts. After 20 hrs of non-stop...

Robyn & Trevor – Silcox Hut – Timberline

Robyn & Trevor – Silcox Hut – Timberline

Robyn and Trevor are as unique as they come. Robyn is a firefighter, teaches aerial ski jumping, loves snowboarding, camping, wine tasting, traveling Thailand, Mexico, mountains and building forts!

He stopped the bike, had her try to solve the problem with studying the bike engine, big distraction, then as she turned...
