The Portland Studio Styled Shoot // Minimal.

 

This minimalist, trendy styled shoot at The Portland Studio made my creativity cup overflow!! There’s something so special about being able to do shoots like this, to put together something that invites artists and business babes to collaborate on something unique and fun!

 First, I just need to say – to all your creatives out there, make time for things like this. Make time for the fun projects and for pushing the box to do something that sounds different and exciting! During off season, it’s easy to feel “land locked” if you’re not shooting a ton! So, whenever I start to feel that oh-so-common creative block, I always try to put something together that will feel life giving and allow all those artsy juices to flow! I find that shoots like this strengthen my creative ability for all my clients – they make my work SO much stronger and allow space to try new things!

This editorial photo shoot was not only a JOY to be a part of, but I wanted it to be an inspiration to both other creatives AND to all couples. I want anyone who is planning a wedding, elopement, or just couples photos to see that there are no limits to the vision you want! You never have to stick with what a wedding day “should” look like. Make it your own. Let the vibe of the day speak to who you are! And, if that means wearing a badass jumpsuit and pearl cape, THEN HECK YES YOU CAN DO THAT!  

Ok, also… everyone who poured into making this shoot possible is INCREDIBLE!! If you’re planning your wedding or just fell in love with some aspect of this collaboration, then please scroll to the bottom and check out all the wonderful humans who were a part of this!

Trendy, Urban Portland Wedding at Union/Pine // Gavin + Makenzie

These two had a trendy, downtown Portland Oregon wedding at Union/Pine, complete with all the urban vibes, margarita cheers, and THE BEST taco bar! Makenzie was STUNNING in her sleek Alexandra Grecco dress and her badass lace up boots! Definitely the hippest couple I know! We laughed, cried, and danced the night away!

there's something so special about dreaming up a shoot and then watching it come to life. i could not be more thankful for all the wonderful, creative humans who came together to be a part of this creation! it was so fun, beautiful, and exciting to see everything piece together!
