Oregon Wedding Photographer| Portland, Oregon Engagement Session, Sara + Galym

January 18, 2016

Sara and Galym contacted me last summer shortly after they got engaged, to photograph their wedding which will be at one of my faaavorite venues in Colorado, The Riverbend in Lyons.

 Which is so very conveniently located exactly 7 miles from my house :0) and easily one of the most beautiful venues in the state. If you’ve ever visited the Lyons Farmette, it may come as a surprise that the Riverbend, came from the devastating floods of 2013. Something so beautiful from such a natural disaster.

It really is something to behold.

These two would be spending Labor Day with their families in Portland, Oregon, where Galym’s father attended Louis and Clark College, and asked if I’d like to join them for their engagement session.

My answer was clearly a yes, and this is one of my favorite sessions to date. We spent the entire day (an absolutely perfect weather day) exploring the grounds of  the stunning college campus then ventured up to the Oneonta Gorge. 

juuuust breathtaking.

i mean, can we all just take a moment to appreciate all of the moss?

and that view of Mt. Hood from the common area of the campus.

it’s too much pretty.

Sara + Galym and their AMAZING families were so wonderful and I’m going to have the best time capturing their big day,

I can’t wait for their wedding this July!

BEHIND THE LENS

MEET BRittany

Photographer, mother, eternal optimist - most inspired by music, the great outdoors, and you.

I’m Brittany! mother to a couple blue-eyed, wicked smart kids– tattoo haver – red lipstick wearer – total moment junkie – married to the actual best person on planet earth – whatever the opposite of a green-thumb is *r.i.p every plant i’ve ever owned*
eternally optimistic. perpetually cold. hair + makeup artist. still-storyteller. beholder of beauty. colorado native with a heart that is set on fire in the great outdoors.
lover and documentarian of life + love (and everything that comes along with it)

Tell-tale signs that I may be a good fit for you and your love: 
because you’re a night-owl and a morning person, because you enjoy the quiet sound of snow falling. because you find inspiration in just about anything. because you like your music loud and your hugs long. because you’re a big fan of the written word. because it’s never too late for things like “i love you’s” and a piece (or 3) of dark chocolate. because kitchens and living rooms make for the best dancing. because honesty. because flowers for no reason at all. because love is big and wonderful and important and the most beautiful choice you get to make. because kindness.because netflix marathons. because tears from hard laughter.because hard work feels good. because friends who feel like family. because spontaneous road trips to anywhere. because gifs and baby animals. 
because viewing my work makes you feel almost as happy as I feel creating it.
and because to me, telling your unique story, capturing your day, would be an honor.
If your love is BIG fat loud messy, imperfectly perfect, hilarious, dreamy, mountain moving, almost annoying its so good, kind of love. You get me and I get you. Love is a big deal and documenting all the big and seemingly tiny moments, is what I do best. 

Whether you’re celebrating with a big affair or keeping it intimate with an elopement, capturing YOUR kind of love is what I strive for.
