"Super glam, super clean. Gold, mint and blush." Yes, please! Alex at Luxe Event Productions was speaking my language when he explained the overall concept for a Spring styled shoot taking place at Union/Pine. I had been in love with that color palette and had some gorgeous papers in the perfect shades that I knew would photograph really well. I love so many things about styled shoots but my favorite is that I get to try new things and test out interesting layouts and concepts that could potentially work for a future couple.

A few months ago, Mandi from Champagne Wedding Coordination asked if I would contribute to the table design they were putting together for the next issue of Portland Bride & Groom magazine. The theme was "Upcycled Brew" and we immediately agreed on what I would contribute– wood goods engraved on a beautiful dark brown walnut wood! I was so happy with the results and think they photographed so nicely with the bright colors going on in the rest of the tablescape. Here's just a couple quick shots of the spread!
Today I'm sharing the logo I created for the lovely Katie & Monica of Gather Event Planning, located here in Portland. I'm on a "Gather high" today as I've fallen even more in love with them after seeing those gals in action at my younger sister's wedding this weekend. All I can say is– WOW, and THANKGODFORTHEM!!! They are professional, fun, and classy women who just know how to throw a party. Their attention to detail, organization and incredible people-skills are exactly what is needed when putting on a big event. My sister met with Katie several months ago to discuss her wedding plans, and after their meeting my sis called saying, "I can't believe I thought I didn't need a coordinator! I can already tell this is one of the best decisions we'll make for our wedding." These are the women you want with you on your big day. To take care of and think of everything to make sure it goes as smoothly as possible. To be sure your vision comes to life. To manage interesting personalities and conflicts with grace. To have the most calming, nurturing presence that when you are anxious and about to pass out they make you feel 100000x better!
So that's my experience with Gather in a nutshell :) Another one of my favorite projects we worked on together was a Modern Italian styled shoot that was published on Style Me Pretty. Here are a few of my favorite shots!
