One of the best parts of my job is when I get to work with my friends and family. It's literally THE best. I think it's really important that you are comfortable with your photographer. The photos that come out of the session are more natural, more YOU, when you are comfortable with the person behind the lens. And that's what I love about shooting people I know. I don't have to spend as much time loosening them up because they are already comfortable with me.
That's what happened with Juliana & Jon.
Juliana and I went to high school together. She will always be one of my best friends and when Jon proposed to Juliana on Christmas last year - I was so excited for her! And even more excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding. DREAM COME TRUE.
We spent a lovely spring day walking through downtown Portland to capture these beautiful photos.
