10 things I love about a wedding day

Weddings are a lot of fun. Sometimes people ask me what it is I like about doing weddings, so here are ten reasons why I love shooting wedding days!

#1. The way people react when seeing the bride for the first time.


#2. The details!!

They set the tone for the entire wedding day and I love having the chance to be creative with them.


#3. How emotionally charged a wedding ceremony can be.


#4. The first dance as newlyweds.

There’s something so special about that moment.

#5. The daddy-daughter dance.

There’s ALWAYS tears in that one, and it just makes me so emotional, haha.


#6. Almost always, the groom is playing with his ring right after the ceremony during photos.


#7. The time I get to spend alone with the couple.

Soo romantic, and they’re just SO happy that I just sit back and take it all in!

#8. I love it when the guests are up and dancing.

It’s seriously so fun to watch and be a part of!


#9. I love it when we get to work with a super fun bridal party.

They can honestly make or break a day.


#10. Really, I just love that this a day all about celebrating the love between two people.

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
