I loved doing wedding photography for this couple. Rachel is a gorgeous person, inside and out, and Dominic is handsome. They both love each other so much, and it shows in the looks they give each other. I got to do their engagement photos at Multnomah Falls, and it was so fun to be able to do their wedding photography as well. It was also a special day because I got to photograph with my Mom, Sara, who originally inspired my love of art. The two got married at Floral Hall in Everett, Washington. The venue had a getting ready room, a beautiful ceremony/reception space, and the couple brought in a mobile bar for drinks. The commercial kitchen was a beautiful space for all of the family who came together to prepare reception food. The bride made her own cake, and everything turned out so beautifully!!
I fell in love with these two. I feel like every good photographer just a little falls in love with each of their clients. As an engagement photographer in Los Angeles, I relish the chance to use nature in my portraits. And Multnomah Falls has definitely been on my photographer’s bucket list for awhile.
The thing about photos is that they don’t say a lot about the person’s soul. Their inner being. Because although this girl is beautiful on the outside, her soul is amazing. Although this started out being a hike with a friend, I have a thing for photographing redheads. So I brought an epic skirt and made her run around in the foothills at sunset in it. The varied scenery had so much to offer, and the gentle undulations of the hills are a fashion photographer’s dream.
So… we got a Dodge Ram Promaster van awhile back and were planning on putting a bed and compartments in it for when we travel for film and photo shoots. After looking at dozens of different options, I decided I could do it myself. So these are some pictures of our Dodge Ram Promaster van conversion. Details about the conversion are down below, as well!
So after the van conversion, Matt and I went on a trip down the California coast. We were really relaxed with our route and schedule, since we just had to find a space to park every night and our food/shelter was right there. 🙂 It was super fun and I LOVED stopping wherever we wanted to take photos. As a professional Los Angeles lifestyle photographer, I sometimes don’t have a chance to really take pictures of whatever I want. So this was super fun! We also took our two Border Collie dogs, Sam and Sherlock. They traveled so easily, just looking out the windows, chasing the frisbee when we found a park, and just hanging out with us. The beach photos were taken at the Gold Bluffs Beach Campground and the others were taken at various places along the coast.
