Grand View Wedding

I met Kristen and Craig for the first time, just a couple of weeks before their Grand View wedding celebration. It was pretty clear to me that these two are an incredible team. They are so sweet and attentive to their three boys, and they just light up around each other. I love the way Kristen and Craig smile when they catch each other’s eyes. It wasn’t until their wedding reception that I realized the depths of what these two have walked through together.

Over the last 8 years, they faced all the odds, and came out on the other side stronger and more sure of their relationship. Literally every single speech that was given at their wedding brought the room to tears. Kristen and Craig were married on their original wedding date. Everyone gathered at Grand View for the wedding celebration they never had. It. Was. Amazing.

We had the perfect New England day; everyone was stoked; and I’m sorry, but I don’t think there’s ANYTHING cuter than little boys in suits!

Kristen and Craig, thank you for trusting me. Thank you for allowing me to photograph such a special celebration – a true testament of your love and the life you’ve built together!

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!
