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!

Once upon a time, I received an email from a woman named Brittany Lauren. She was a Portland photographer looking for a designer to help create a new logo and identity for her up-and-coming business. She had seen my invitation designs, but didn't realize I designed logos as well. We set up a coffee date, and from the second I saw her– feather earrings and off the shoulder top– I was excited, but felt a little intimidated. Ok, A LOT intimidated. She was outgoing, friendly, likable and cool without even trying. It just came to her naturally to be awesome. And she was talented, and SMART! So she needed a killer logo to really show all these traits and more. No pressure, right?! Thankfully she had some great ideas and a good idea of what she wanted, so together we created something really awesome that suited her and her photography business perfectly. I'm really proud of the elements she has created on her own using the brand we created, too. Be sure to fan her on Facebook to keep up to date with her gorgeous photography!
