This was a special shoot for me, a merging of worlds that I much appreciated. Stephanie and I have been friends and worked together for many years on weddings, and she's also the only person I've done a inspiration shoot with that she based on my wardrobe, Leather + Plaid. She and her family came to Boise recently, and I photographed them in the foothills. Moving is a weird thing, it takes a long time to arrive in a new place, I still feel like I'm arriving, and it's been over a year now. So seeing these friends from Portland was helpful in integrating my new home with my old, and bringing my worlds together.
I spent an incredible day with Katie and Ron at The Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland, photographing their wedding. We were in luck, and the February Portland sky cleared for us, and we had some beautiful sunlight (that I as a nerdy photographer, was stoked out of my mind about), that brought some magic to their wedding photographs.
The joy between these two was tangible, I could feel it, and I think you can feel it in these pictures. If you can't let me know, so I can check my "feel-o-meter", it can get a bit out of whack.

Katie and Ron, thank you so much for hiring me, it was so wonderful working with you both and witnessing the joy of your guy's wedding, it was truly inspiring.
I'm doing mini sessions this Sunday at the Hoyt Arboretum in Portland, the weather is looking great and I've still got a few slots open. Click here to go to the page to reserve your spot, and because posts are so much better with photos, here's a few of my favorite photos from the Hoyt Arboretum in recent years. It's a gorgeous location, so close to the city, but also has so much to offer. I haven't done family photos there before, but it's a perfect spot. Hope to see you there!
