anna & john {destination italy wedding}

Happy New Year!  I hope you enjoyed the holiday season, and are looking forward to 2013!  Personally, 2012 was very up and down for me – I lost both of my Grandpas, had wrist surgery, among other things.  BUT, there were some amazing things as well.  One was getting hired to shoot a destination wedding in Italy on the Amalfi coast!  Spencer and I had such a great time (to say the least!), and it was an honor to be part of Anna & John‘s intimate, beautiful wedding.  They are both amazing people, and I’m lucky to have since become good friends with them.

Their wedding was featured on Ruffled! http://ruffledblog.com/amalfi-coast-destination-wedding/

I will eventually post some personal photos from the trip, but I’ll start with the wedding!

The schedule was a little rushed after the ceremony, but I loved how relaxed and in the moment they were…

Someone asked Spencer if she was a real bride or a model – I wonder why!?  :)

  • Irina Negrean - I googled wedding photographers in Portland and I simply stumbled upon your website. I am a beginning photographer myself, so I was just looking around for inspiration.
    I clicked through your posts and I just had to comment on this posting. It honestly brought me to tears. BEAUTIFUL, so creative, so dreamy and romantic. You are so incredibly talented and gifted, that I just can’t help myself but be in awe of these pictures. You are the kind of artist I aspire to become. Congrats!
    I know artistic people are very critical of their work – but coming from a complete stranger – WOW. SO beautiful. You are really creating something special here. Wishing you all the best.
