A Portland wedding

Almost half the weddings I shoot take place in the Portland area. This also includes the vineyards of McMinnville and Newberg, as well as points further east such as Hood River and Bridal Veil Lakes. The image shown here, however, is of a traditional church wedding in the city itself. I like the idea of people blowing soap bubbles as the newlyweds exit the church; the bubbles are much more photogenic than grains of rice. I also like the expressions on the couples’ faces, especially the bride’s; you can tell they’re very excited and happy to be married!
