Bonnie & Victor

I have to believe that Bonnie & Victor hold the world record for most successful wedding planned in the shortest amount of time possible. We met Bonnie & Victor exactly 10 days prior to their wedding. So for all of you brides and grooms out there pondering how much time is needed to plan your should chat with Bonnie & Victor. You should also chat with their wedding coordinator - Nadia from Creations by Ly. The events of the day flowed seemlessly and the extreme attention to detail was evident throughout. The weather fluctuated from bright sun to light showers at least 3-4 times throughout the day, but thanks to the tremendous preparations and planning, the wedding was a huge success.

Marianne & Mike's Wedding

Marianne and Mike's wedding was one of the largest wedding parties we have ever photographed! There were 7 brides maids and 7 groomsmen. We started off photographing Marianne getting ready in the Heathman Hotel while Mike and the guys hung out at the Hilton. To ensure that Marianne and Mike did not see each other before the wedding, Holly and I coordinated a series of formals in the Park Blocks and communicated via 2-way radios throughout. We were extremely grateful to have a 3rd photographer -- John Valls from Valls Photographic -- on site to assist us throughout the day. We were able to be 3 places at once and boy did that prove to be helpful for this wedding. After the ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church, we all walked up to the Portland Art Museum to finish off the evening with some cake cutting, some outrageously fun dancing, and some great drinks!
