Matt+Naomi | Mt Hood Organic Farms Wedding in Hood River

Matt+Naomi. Goodness. Their fall wedding in an orchard tucked away in Hood River was magic. I had never been to Mt Hood Organic Farms before so I planned a scout day and you guys... I was so overwhelmed with every single turn of my head. There is no nook of this place that isn’t photogenic and I have to be honest… I was so visually overwhelmed.

‘Am I going to be able to capture the magic of this place?’ How do I clone myself so I can be everywhere at once? Their guests are walking into a wonderland of pure joy. I need 10 of me.’

It was soft and drizzly while Matt+Naomi got ready (they arrived together in one car. So cute, guys) and then the sun greeted us moments before they saw each other to kick off our portrait session before their vows. And even while the venue itself is so stunning, everyone one was quiet bothered that the peak of Mt Hood was hiding behind the clouds all day, teasing us, dangling a carrot. Dinner time comes along and there she is. Basking in a Fuji Pink Sky, as I like to call it. : ) Show off.

Naomi’s dress was vintage from a shop in San Francisco that she had custom designed and it was made for her. Her smart, sophisticated style was everything and I’m pretty certain I told her she needed to get in that dress fast or else I’d walk right off the property with it. Just wow, Naomi.

Ok, enough. Please enjoy this curation of Matt+Naomi’s most beautiful wedding day. M+N- I am so thrilled to have been your photographer! Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you. How’s Tulum treating you guys? ; )

-always love, amy.

Nicole+Stuart | Woodsy Wedding at Kitsap Memorial State Park

Before I start gushing about Nicole+Stuart, let me first emphasize this… Kitsap Memorial State Park is one of theeee most underrated venues in my little humble opinion of opinions. If you dream of a woodsy wedding amongst the trees, views of the crisp sound and a kick ass hall for you and your guests to celebrate…it’s Kitsap Memorial State Park. I love love love this venue.

Nicole+Stuart…these two are real gems. They both have incredibly kind hearts and my time with them besides shooting their wedding was always spent laughing over a yummy cocktail and great food. When I asked Nicole when she knew Stuart was the one, she described a moment they shared having a steak dinner and a good bottle of wine while siting on the floor because he didn’t yet have a table in his studio apartment. *Girl, I can relate! I also took to fancy-ing my boyfriend while sharing many meals…sitting on the floor…in his studio apartment. That’s love, baby.

Stuart’s brother was his best man and his father was their officiant. And I really loved being witness to all three of them standing at the front of the ceremony awaiting Nicole down the aisle. Pro Tip: Family Matters. DO involve them in your ceremony because the foundation of your vows will increase exponentially.

Nicole+Stuart’s wedding day came to life via the combined visions of Natalie at Ginger Bee Events + Planning and Amy at Gather Design. The moss aisle runner adorned with lush ferns? Nailed it. Dj Beaux and Cho had the party absolutely rocking and I almost didn’t want to leave when our coverage was wrapped. *Don’t mind the creepy photographer just staring through the window pining for another song. And! Nicole’s insanely talented Uncle did the illustrations for their table cards and seating chart.

Quick recap: food, family, forest, ferns, views, love. Check, check and check! Here’s where you get to relish in their beautiful day. Thank you so much for having me as your photographer, N+S!

-always love, amy.

Jenn+Chris | Orcas Island Wedding at Oddfellows Hall

Oh, the San Juan Islands. They are a real gem in this world and I’ll cherish them in my heart for always. So when Chris+Jenn found me to shoot their Orcas Island wedding…gasp…Yes, Please!

Orcas Island, like the whole lot of the San Juan collection of islands actually, is peaceful, charming and kinda spooky all at the same. And Oddfellows Hall is just as charming and, being right on the water with incredible scenic views, it seriously is a stunning place to wed. Good choice, Jenn+Chris. Good choice, indeed.

Thank you, J+C for having me document the adventure that starts your next adventure!

Dan+Anna | Trinity Tree Farm Wedding at The Lodge

I met Dan+Anna at a wedding when I was a guest at a wedding! They were lounging at cocktail hour, lookin' all cool and cute and I walked up and said something along the lines of "Hi! I don't know anyone here except the couple! May we lounge with you?" And the rest is history! We hit it off and now I'm happy to call them friends! So when they asked me to photograph their wedding at Trinity Tree Farm, I was ever so delighted! Dan has the best smile and Anna is just so kind and warm!

The highlights of their day? It was just easy and relaxed and they put so much emphasis on Just. Having. Fun. One of my most memorable moments was after the ceremony; I snagged Anna for one more quick portrait of her and Dan come rushing over with two glasses of wine and exclaimed that they MUST toast to their nuptials. He was as giddy as a kitten with catnip. So adorbs.

Please enjoy this collection of images from their most stunning wedding day! Congrats, my friends! xo -amy.
