This blog post has been a long time coming. I think this session actually took place around this time last year?! Crazy how fast time flies. My friend Lexia Frank is such a talented film photographer and is putting together a book for other photographers, or just anyone who wants to learn more about film photography. She needed a few subjects to photograph for a few of her lessons, which is where I came in. :) I love all of the different levels of lighting she used in these photos. So interesting and unique! Thanks for including me Lexia, I love your work!
Earlier this year I collaborated on a wedding inspiration shoot with some of the best vendors in Portland, OR! Spring is one of the best times of the year for beautiful flowers, so I went all out with shades of white, blush, purple and green flowers. Lots of amazing ranunculus, hellebores, spirea and tweedia too!

This winter was pretty tough to get through in Portland. We had so much rain and we went months and months with very few, if any sunny days! If there is anything good about an Oregon winter, it's this. How beautiful are these birch trees?
Jenni was dreaming up a winter bouquet for this shoot, and that's exactly what I created! Lots of greenery and twiggy details, with pops of winter white flowers such as lisanthus and spider mums. I even include some dried lunaria too! It was nice to play with some winter flowers and textures that I don't get to use often.
Thank you to Trendy Bride Magazine for featuring our work! It's always a treat to have our designs published. :)
Mt. Hood Organic Farms continues to amaze me. It's one of my favorite wedding venues here in Oregon! Hannah and Jeremy's wedding took place at Mt. Hood Organic Farms last August and I was truly so lucky to place a small role in making their day beautiful and special.
Summer in Oregon offers so many beautiful blooms, we had such a bounty of flowers to choose from for their soft, pastel palette. You will see garden roses, scabiosa, dahlias, pee gee hydrangea, foxglove, and many more. I really enjoyed working with this muted, summer palette.
Make sure to watch their feature film at the end of this post, We Are Moving Pictures captured their day so well!
