sheila + jason
It's been WAY too long since I have posted anything...so much for that grand goal of a blog a day. Pfffft!!
So I have about a gabazillion things I would like to share with you!
Let's start out in St Johns with the adorable, sassy, hilarious, tasty dinner making couple Sheila + Jason.
They are getting married in Sept and I am so honored that they chose me to photograph their ceremony. It is going to be a VERY small, intimate affair...just immediate family + me.
But hello...the next day is a BBQ + party till your knees get weak celebration. WHooooTT!
For their engagement session we tromped around the straight out of the 1970's SMALL town of St Johns. I am so in love with this place! If we hadn't gotten too hungry to think, I would have kept shooting 'til sun-up.
But wait? You are going to feed me a BBQ fillet wrapped in bacon, serve me wine and tell me stories on the deck? Okay...I break for anything wrapped in bacon. Which is SO counter intuitive to one who is so in love with animals. I hate to think of where my meat came from, but It's one of the few things that my body will digest (food allergies galore!) And well...if they weren't so darn tasty....
So we sat and munched, sipped and giggled for an hour or so and then headed down to the water to finish up our shoot under the St Johns Bridge. It truly is the most fantastically gorgeous bridge in Portland.
Thanks you two! (and the mews, gary and dan :) See you soon.
