I know I say this all the time, but one of my most favorite parts of running this little business of mine is the people I get to meet along the way. Over the past five years of photographing weddings and engagements I've collected the most amazing group of brides and grooms who I am so fortunate to now call friends. They're the type of people who keep in touch long after their wedding day is over and photos have been delivered. They let me know when they buy a house, and get a puppy, and have a baby. They email me when life events happen and they text when they see something they know I'll appreciate. They truly have become the most wonderful of friends.
Gary and Allison are exactly those people. I met them earlier this month for a picturesque afternoon on the Oregon Coast and I left their engagement session wishing we could just go get drinks instead. Not only are they two incredibly gorgeous individuals, but they're wonderful, hilarious, fun people as well. I'm so glad this is only the beginning of our time working together and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding later this summer at Portland's Abernethy Center.
