urban wedding day

Marianne + Jimmy, your wedding was amazing.  It was the perfect combination of modern and traditional, urban and refined, detailed yet simple. I remember, Marianne, when you said a few years ago “when I get married I want to have you as my photographer,” and I’m so glad that came true. You were effortlessly beautiful and Jimmy you were sharp and handsome and you guys just look so good together.

I loved shooting in a new city and in Portland there was so much to work with. Thankfully the schedule of the day allowed us to take advantage of that fact and we started with a first look, moved to family photos, and then continued on with some portraits around the city all before the ceremony. Wedding photography is an interesting art since it is so reactive and spontaneous… at least in my opinion. Decisions have to be made on the spot, calculations about light and composition happen instantly all while interacting with the couple to make sure they are comfortable and giving the expression and emotion you are looking for. It’s a challenge that I love, and while I won’t say I’ve mastered that art there are times when everything falls into place perfectly and I think they did so for Marianne and Jimmy. So congrats again you two and enjoy that honeymoon knowing that your pictures are going to look fabulous.
