When I first moved to Portland, just over a year ago, I finally had the pleasure of collaborating and working with one of my dear friends, and talented photographer, Kim Smith-Miller. In the four days following my arrival in Portland, the same four days leading up to Kim’s adventure in Iceland, we photographed two weddings together, including this one.
Hannah and David’s love for each other was obvious, worn on their sleeves for all to see. Their first look was full of hugs, kisses, and bashful smiles as the realization of what they were about to do, in front of a field full of people, settled in.
He got down on his knee and proposed again, wrapping a small vine around her ring finger, sending them both into a fit of giggles. When the bridal party showed up we wandered onto the Christmas tree farm for a whirlwind of photographs that were full of the best kind of shenanigans.
The ceremony was lead by David’s dad, the flowers were arranged and the cake was baked by Hannah’s mom, and the desserts were supplied by their friends. This wedding is a fine example of what DIY really means, friends and family coming together to turn one otherwise ordinary day into a magical beginning for Hannah and David.
