We explored wide and far during Jessica and Evan’s Portland Engagement adventure. We are beyond thrilled for Jessica and Evan’s upcoming wedding this coming September 28th, 2014 at the Mt. Hood Organic Farms. Their love is so true; just being around them makes you want to smile and laugh larger than life. I remember the first time I met Jessica back in 2006 here in Portland; her sassy wit, fun-loving heart, and gorgeous smile brought on something as bright as her fiery red hair. And watching her evolve as a talented photographer over the years has been a true joy.
When Tree and I finally met Evan last year and experienced their chemistry we immediately knew this was “seriously it.” Yes, Evan is equally as articulate as Jessica and is extraordinarily kind, and has the perfect touch of nerdy brilliance. Evan is somewhere between a stand-up comedian, a chief technology master, a life coach, and an ashtanga yogi. Well, these might be understatements too, Evan just keeps showing new colors all the time. Their call to us from Argentina announcing their engagement brought us triumphant tears of joy. We couldn’t’ have been happier spending quality time with them capturing their magic with our cameras. From an intimate hike in Forest Park to Ron Tom’s where they first met each other while waiting in line for the bathroom :), to a fun rooftop in SE looking out over the city at sunset. Keep feeding each other with all that magic like John Legend sings “Give your all to me, I’ll give my all to you…” reminiscent lyrics from the song “All of Me” played during this epic Portland engagement adventure.
Cause all of me Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, ohoh
