Yale Union Wedding Photographs | Kara + Will

I don’t even know where to start with this couple and this wedding. Let’s say this, I tagged 498 images that I wanted to blog. Wowzers. This couple was amazing. This wedding was amazing.

They had their ceremony at Yale Union, an amazing art gallery in Southeast Portland and absolutely one of my favorite venues in the city of Portland.

Kara and Will’s connection and the joy they share while together is so obvious that it slaps you in the face (but it’s a good slap, that you like). I found it really inspiring and made it so much fun just being around them and watching them together.

Also you’re definitely going to want to scroll all the way to the end of this post, because as Kara and Will exited their wedding, they both tripped over an old industrial elevator door and the image of them falling is just brutal. Thankfully a.) They weren’t injured. b.) They don’t take themselves too seriously, so they think this is hilarious.

    These pictures capture a celebration of people who care about one another and will face together whatever life throws at them. Beautiful colors and the venue was elegant yet urban.

    Rupp Photography does it again. How do stay so consistently great?

Urban Studio Wedding Photographs | Jacqueline + Patrick

I had a fantastic time shooting Jacqueline and Patrick’s wedding. They live in Texas, so I didn’t get to meet them before their wedding, but upon meeting them I instantly felt very comfortable around them, they’re super laid back, kind people. We wandered through downtown, wandered through the Pearl and ended up at Urban Studio for their awesome ceremony and reception.

Yale Union Wedding Photographs | Kara + Will

Guaranteed the most brutal photo of a wedding couple you’ve seen (Fantastic capture by my second photographer, Hannah). Kara and Will tripped on an old service elevator door while exiting their wedding at Yale Union. Only hilarious because they are thankfully fine and think it’s hilarious themselves. I see why elevator doors now open horizontally. Posted with their permission (duh!).

    I love that there’s a couple people that have their phones out, casually Instagramming the event. :)

Dundee Family Photographs | The V Family

I shot Christina and Thomas’ wedding over three years ago, and now they have a beautiful baby boy who just recently turned one. I was really honored to meet up with them and do a shoot with their family this last month. We met up at the Dundee Paddle Launch (a place I’ve been wanting to shoot for awhile) on basically the nicest January day I’ve ever seen in Western Oregon.
