Jamie and Kyle are some of my very good friends. I’ve known them both for YEARS (check out their engagement pics, as well as some couples photos I did a long time ago ) so when they asked me to photograph their Union Pine wedding in Portland I almost cried. Then, I actually cried because their wedding was everything I could have hoped for and more. I wept tears of joy when I hugged them after their ceremony. Then when I got home and went through all the photos, I was ever happier. This was one of the most creatively fulfilling and fun days I’ve ever had and I am honestly SO proud of the photos I took. I had so much time, badass lighting, and trust from Jamie and Kyle to create the most amazing imagery. It was refreshing and I am stoked to share them with you!
About Jamie and Kyle
I met Kyle and Jamie in college at Oregon State, which is also where they met each other! Kyle loves to cook and would always host the best dinner parties. On one such night, Jamie was there. “We joke that his potatoes were what did it for me,” Jamie said. “He flirted with me that night, but I was completely oblivious. Then, a few weeks later, he personally invited me to another dinner party, sat veryyyy close to me on the couch at one point, and I finally caught on!” They’ve been together for years now, and both have awesome careers in design (him with interiors and her with clothing). They both love cooking and eating, exploring, and seeing shows. Their favorite days are spent just wandering around a city together eating at various places along the way. When I asked them what they love most about each other, Jamie said that she loves how Kyle is both supportive and honest. Kyle loves Jamie’s smile and the way her nose wrinkles, as well as her positive influence and guidance which keeps him pointed in the right direction.
A really fun Portland wedding
I always ask couples what 3 words describe their wedding, and Kyle and Jamie summed it up perfectly with “damn good fun.” Their design sense came together elegantly with a clean palette of navy, white, green and blush, with wood accents in the urban space. They kept things casual with delicious Sizzle Pie pizza for dinner, and then classed it up with an excellent wine and beer selection. All their favorite people came and the dance party was legendary. Their Union Pine wedding in Portland is one I will never forget!!
