I’ve done a lot of flying back and forth between Seattle and California this year, but one of the highlights from this wedding season was getting to photograph Holly and Brenden’s Coopers Hall wedding in downtown Portland. This former auto body shop turned winery and tap room is pretty incredible. The industrial space is painted white, with concrete floors and is filled with hanging plants. The wall of wine barrels is a unique and fun ceremony backdrop. Coopers Hall really is the perfect venue for any couple looking to have a modern and industrial wedding.

From Coopers Hall:

The spacious environment invites guests to get closer to all aspects of the wine making experience from grape to bottle. Coopers Hall values authenticity, producing wines that we care for in such a manner as we care for ourselves. We view winemaking as an evolving process that changes with the seasons, moods and elements. Our goal is to make wine honestly: to have transparency in our process, experience, and methods. We want the character of our wine to be an expression of us; making each wine changes us as we too change it.

Thanks to my friend Jenna, for the fun road trip and having me along to assist her.

A few weeks ago I blogged part one of our boudoir editorial and I’m excited to share part two of that shoot today. Photographing editorials are so important to me and I try to shoot several of them each year. Honestly, I love how they make me feel. They are such a great creative outlet and each one helps me grow as an artist. I always feel so fortunate to the vendors who collaborate with me. They are so giving of their time and talents and I couldn’t do any of this without them. I love this community of women who encourage one another and always seem so willing to offer support.

Over the summer I worked with Eleanor from Bash & Bloom and became totally obsessed with her work. I was thrilled when she told me that she had been wanting to collaborate on a boudoir shoot. She made all of my floral dreams come true. The colors and texture of this bouquet are stunning. It ties in perfectly with the soft and romantic feel we wanted this shoot to have. I am also so thankful to Kailin, (one of my former brides) who graciously agreed to model for me. I love her energy and her enthusiasm for life. She is so much fun and a total dream to have in front of my camera. I’m really looking forward to planning my next boudoir editorial, but in the meantime enjoy part two and if you missed part one of this shoot you can check it out here.

Every time I walk into San Francisco City Hall I am totally in awe of its beauty. Couples travel from all over the world to get married at City Hall. Once you step inside it’s easy to understand why. The architecture, the light and the white marble interior make it one of my favorite places to photograph. A few weeks ago I teamed up with a group of awesome creatives for an editorial San Francisco City Hall elopement. This shoot was so romantic and looks beautiful on film. You can never go wrong with a soft color palette and creams and blushes look great in this space. I am totally obsessed with the sleeves on this Badly Mischka dress. It is the perfect elopement dress and can be found on Rent the Runway. The best part was getting to work with these real life loves. Sarah and Robbie are the power couple behind Sassy Red Lipstick. They are completely head over heels for one another and were a total dream to photograph.
