Portland Oregon Elopement | Jameykay + Arlie

Portland Oregon Elopement

A few months back we received an amazing note from Jameykay, she was planning her quickly approaching elopement wanted to see if we could document the day in Portland. It was one of those emails that you have to re-read a few times because there is so much amazingness. She’s a talented photographer from Asheville, NC and her fiance is in a super cool band. They thought the idea of seeing Portland was a perfect fit for their wedding.

Yes, she’d be wearing a couture dress. Yes, we could go on a scouting adventure the day before with them to find the perfect ceremony location. Yes, we could do a day after portrait session at the Oregon Coast. Yes, they’d get all of Sara’s obscure Parks & Rec jokes.

It was an awesome experience hanging out all weekend, making both beautiful images and great friendships.
