Portland Engagement Session // Kelsey+Blake // Portland Oregon


It’s those moments when we both just trust each other that the magic happens. The most convenient time for Kelsey and Blake’s engagement shoot was 8am on a Tuesday. The forecast was rain, lots of it. We started out in the studio, as they read their letters to each other, each telling the other person what their relationship meant to them, why they were getting married, and the deep seated reason behind their love. It was beautiful. A wonderful way to set the tone for the morning. Everything after that just fell into place. The rain held off, the city looked beautiful and Kelsey and Blake just rocked it from there. We roamed around Northeast then ended with some killer pizza and a beer. Congrats Kelsey and Blake, I can’t wait to shoot your wedding in a few months.

Wow, the pictures are incredible! Completely captures the essence of Blake and I, a little edge, a little weird, a lot of fun, and a shit ton of love! The best part is we had an absolute blast that day and made incredible memories even without the pictures to remind us....the letters were unbelievable, it was one of the most beautiful moments of our relationship (thank you for giving that opportunity and that moment to us)....the tire swing, the pizza (Pizzicato has never tasted so good as after taking pictures all morning after running way too late for breakfast)....and the wigs, I mean what else can I say, the wigs were epic. Phil they are stunning, thank you so much for your incredible work and such am awesome day! Wedding will be ridiculous! Thank you!
