A Cannon Beach Surprise Wedding Proposal, Drew & Bridgette

Cannon Beach Surprise Proposal by Portland Wedding Photographer, MaiCamera

Drew and Bridgette drove in all the way from Idaho for a last minute weekend visit to Cannon Beach. However, Drew had a surprise up his sleeve as they played around on the beach. In keeping with their fondness for drawing pictures and messages in the sand, Drew popped the question with a simple “Marry Me!” message! She said yes, and he revealed his second surprise: inviting a photographer (me!) to photograph the proposal along with a portrait session for afterwards!

Multnomah Falls Wedding Inspiration by MaiCamera Photography

I had the fantastic honor to photograph this amazing mock up wedding that Jackie of Cloud Nine Events put together at the Multnomah Falls Lodge.  Her vision was a dark, romantic, Victorian wedding, and she nailed it!  There’s more to come, but for now, I offer you a little preview!

Angie and Norbert’s Golden Gate Park Engagement Session

Golden Gate Park Engagement Session by San Francisco Wedding Photographer, MaiCamera

When I asked Angie and Norbert what they like to do together, Norbert mentioned that he had a membership to the California Academy of Science.  So, when they suggested an engagement session in the museum, I was all for it!  We started at the California Academy of Science, exploring the entire museum, and then topped it off with a visit to the Japanese Gardens.  The Academy was such an awesome place to visit!

Adrian and Amber’s Black and White Themed Wedding

Portland Wedding Photographer, Embassy Suites Hotel Wedding by MaiCamera Photography

Brilliant and Wonderful!  Black and White!  Adrian and Amber had a fantastically classic wedding where everyone was encouraged to dress in black and white.  The wedding began with a ceremony at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and ended with a reception at the Embassy Suites Hotel.  At the reception there was a dessert bar (featuring B&W candies!) as well as a kids corner (for the awesome Kendal and her friends).  Friends and family celebrating and kids running around the dance floor (hey, it was a dessert reception), everything added up to good times for Adrian and Amber’s wedding day!

Photos will all be B&W for this post 🙂

Pete and Niamh’s Wedding at St. Michael’s and Leftbank Annex

Portland Wedding Photographer, the Parks Blocks wedding portraits by MaiCamera Photography

Pete and Niamh’s wedding was awesome.  Beyond fun, but I may be biased as they’re my awesome friends.  Pete and Niamh came in from Phoenix, Arizona back to Portland where the two first met.  Their wedding started at the Church of St. Michael the Archangel and ended with a fantastic reception at Leftbank Annex.  There were plenty of loud cheers as the bride and groom walked up the aisle together and their reception was my favorite reception ever (I may be biased towards my friends).  There was delicious food (the delicious mashed potatoes had a delicious fried potato chip in it), great music (DJ Graymatter threw a good party), and most importantly, lots of awesome family and friends to celebrate with (again, I may be biased).

Erin and Rick’s Library Engagement session in Monmouth

Erin and Rick met while working at the University of Idaho’s library.  So, we saw it fitting to have an engagement session at Western Oregon University’s library.  Nothing like running around among the stacks goofing off with two librarians!

I love that when I told them to walk through the stacks and explore, they genuinely pulled books out to look over.

Pete and Niamh’s Engagement Session at Red Rocks… or not?

Engagement Climbing Session at Red Rocks Nevada

Pete, Niamh, and I had the awesome plan of using one of the mornings or evenings during a climbing trip in Red Rocks to do their engagement session.  After one day of climbing at Red Rocks I thought to myself… that engagement session was not going to happen.  To bring them so close to awesome climbing, and not let them climb?  That’d be impossible.

So this is how we spent their engagement photo session:
