Shauna & Michael fell in love with Black Butte Ranch in Sisters, Oregon, and decided to plan their destination wedding there. They love simplicity and wanted their wedding to focus on being with friends and family who had travelled from all around the world to spend their special day with them. They planned their wedding around Michael's Scottish heritage, using wild flowers for their florals, and the plaid from Michael's family tartan as their wedding colors. And no Scottish wedding is complete without a bagpiper! The weather in October was brisk with periods of wind and rain -- perfectly matching the theme of their Celtic/Scottish wedding! But Shauna and Michael seemed too in love to even notice, the wind only enhanced the dreaminess of Shauna's gorgeous dress, and the clouds parted just in time for their ceremony. I don't think it could have ended up more perfect.

The sudden blooming of Portland's cherry blossoms are always such a splendid sight to see. One day it still feels like winter, and then the next, all around the city hundreds of delicate, pastel pink blossoms sprout out to bring life and beauty to the city. Sokhorn and Jay timed their engagement session with the blooming of the cherry blossoms along the Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland. We started their session, beneath the soft petals that matched Sokhorn's pink tulle dress so well. Then later on, we transitioned their session to Cathedral Park to capture some portraits underneath the St. John's Bridge and it's iconic weeping willow tree. Engagement sessions like this remind me why I love living in Portland so much. Such breath-taking natural beauty, and with a couple this sweet and in love, it's no wonder their photos turned out so stunning.
