Autumn Boho Wedding Inspiration (13)

Today’s gorgeous styled shoot, brought to us by Madeline Moore Events (Portland, OR) is brimming with cozy vibes and sophisticated details! Here’s Madeline to tell us more:

This shoot was inspired by the crisp and light airy colors that fall brings. We were inspired to create this shoot based on the golden sunsets that grace the skies at the end of an Oregon summer. With fall brings cozy temperatures in the pacific north west and we wanted this color palette to exude warmth. By incorporating gold and brass metallics, we were able to inject a bohemian yet romantic feel.

Everything Brides Need to Know About Window Light (3)

Today’s awesome guest post comes to us from Greg Hastain of HastainDavis, based in Portland, OR! Enjoy:

We absolutely love the results when our indoor subjects are photographed illuminated with window light. To clarify, this is specifically referring to photographs taken indoors, when the majority of the light is coming from a nearby window (or sometimes door). Depending on the time of day, cloud cover, and if there is an eave overhanging the window or some other exterior obstructions, the brightness of light coming from windows will vary, but in many instances is not exceptionally bright.

Fun-filled California Lakeside Wedding (19)

peony bouquets and mismatched bridesmaid dresses

This gorgeous rustic chic wedding comes to us from Melissa Babasin Photography, based in Portland, OR! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

Greg and I met at a country line-dancing party! My mom decided to throw this fun “barn party” one year and scouted our town for the coolest barn around, and it happened to be on the property Greg lived on. We naturally connected at the party and he stole my cowboy hat (his way of flirting!), and pulled a sneaky move to get my phone number. The rest is history, and so now I get to live on the property with the beautiful barn, and we throw the party annually!

Elegant Outdoor Wedding in Portland, OR (11)

Elegant Outdoor Wedding in Portland, OR (13)

This sweet and elegant wedding comes to us from wedding photographer Britney of Turn Loose the Art, based in Portland, OR!

We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding – we both love being outdoors, especially here in the Pacific Northwest. The color scheme was actually based off a sunset we saw in Terrebonne, Oregon, after our day of rock climbing was cut short by a storm. The sky was a gorgeous combination of gray and coral, and so we chose those colors! We also wanted it to be a pretty classic wedding, since we both are pretty traditional. So that guided our music choice of more rat pack/crooners and the use of gold as our main accent color.
