For years I have driven by the Grace Bible Church in downtown Portland and always wanted to know what it was like inside. I finally got my chance! And better yet, I had the honor of photographing the pastor’s daughter.
August 20th was one of those classically warm summer days in Portland. Thankfully it did not reach into the 100′s but it certainly did get rather warm. Fans were running at full blast in the back rooms as everyone got ready for the big day. We did everything we could to stay nice and cool and made sure to hang out in the shade when outside.
Following the ceremony, Rachel and Aaron rode off in a nicely decorated car and headed over to Peninsula Park for formal portraits. We set aside nearly an hour for photos and I absolutely love the variety in the work. We even had a chance to create a more stylized portrait of the full wedding party. Have you ever seen a cooler looking bunch?
Rachel & Aaron’s reception was at The Northstar Ballroom. Very touching speeches were given and the food was absolutely fabulous. Thank you Rachel & Aaron for the opportunity to document your wedding day. It has been such a pleasure working with the two of you and getting to know your families. We can’t wait to hear about all your travels to Maui!
