Double Tree Double Wedding Portland OR: Elizabeth + Dave Susan +Aidan

Double wedding Portland, Oregon. Have you ever been to a double wedding? Neither had I. This incredible event was such a privilege to be a part of. I’m still sitting here slightly dumbfounded that these two beautiful brides got married simultaneously before my very eyes.

It’s such a joy to be able to share some of their wedding story through their photos…

Portland White House Wedding: Daniel + Lizzie

Capturing the love of Daniel and Lizzie on their wedding day was such a delight. They were two fingers of the same hand, so unified in heart and spirit. It was with great anticipation that Lizzie slipped into her wedding gown at the Portland White House eagerly looking forward to meeting her groom.

Meanwhile, Daniel, like most grooms, paced downstairs eagerly awaiting that moment when all his angst would be put to rest in seeing her.

Their love story is one of long friendship, deep care and sweetest of loves.

Portland Glamor Photos: Christa-Taylor Photography

Portland glamor photos aren’t about boas and blurry butterfly backgrounds. It’s about having the guts to exist in photos for your children. How many moms out there ever get photographed? How many are actually in front of the camera vs behind it?

As a family, we’ve often spent many holidays looking through old photos albums and laughing over all the memories. But every time I flip through those pages I am struck by how few photos of my mom are in their pages. A combination of self-consciousness and busy-ness elsewhere always have us kids as center stage.

I for one, want my husband and kids to remember me as I feel now. And maybe I don’t feel 100% gorgeous all the time and wish I could drop that extra few pounds- but those excuses can’t keep us from capturing the life we live right now. Besides, when you have a really good photographer, you’re going to look amazing no matter what size you are. Trust me ;)

Thank you Chelsie for getting out there and having a shoot just for you! Your little ones will look back and thank you.
