Portland Portrait Photographer // Sean+Melanie


This weekend has been the best. Yesterday, Emily and I met up with my good friend Sean and his fiancé Melanie to roam around Portland and snap some photos of each other. No one had photographed them yet and no one had photographed us before, so that was kinda awesome. Being in front of the camera is actually pretty damn fun when you just feel like you’re hanging out with friends, I’m stoked to see what Sean captured of us. To explain the old man with the hula hoop.. so Emily is a hula hoop extraordinare enthusiast, so she ran back to the car to grab her hoop for photos. When she got back to us an older gentleman passed by, complimenting Emily’s fun spirit, so we asked him if he wanted to hoop it up. He did. And he loved it. Magic. After photos we grabbed some tacs at Robo Tacos then came home to watch the Blazer’s win an epic game. This weekend has been the best.

Awesome shots. Beautiful light. Love the simplistic beauty, the turn of a head or a quirk of clothing.
