As I am sitting here trying to find the perfect words to describe this wedding at Jacobsen Salt Co in Portland, Oregon; nothing truly feels good enough.
I met Maggie + Kory in 2017 when I was first beginning my photography journey. They were only the second couple I had ever shot, and I instantly fell in love with them. Luckily, I have had the pleasure of photographing them several times since then ( here ), so when Maggie asked me to shoot their wedding I wanted to cry. I was sooo happy and honored! Not only are they absolutely GORGEOUS; they are also some of the sweetest and kindest people I have ever met.
Maggie + Kory scouted out the most epic first look location in downtown Portland with the craziest + most picture perfect city view. As you can see in the photos, when they saw each other tears started to flow instantly. You know when you can just tell two people were made for each other? Yea that’s these two. After the first look, family photos and shooting some of their bridal party photos; we headed to the venue! Jacobsen Salt Co is this insanely gorgeous, indoor venue made for parties, and all sorts of events. It was such a unique and perfect spot for these two to tie the knot.
When I walked in, I wanted to cry the decorations were so beautiful! Everyone just kept saying, “this was all Maggie, this was her vision”. She had put so much planning and thought into every detail and you could totally tell the moment you walked in the door.
My favorite part of the whole day had to be how much time Maggie + Kory allowed for their photos together. It was really important to them that they had beautiful memories to hold on to forever, so they gave me as much time as possible to really be creative, shoot in a TON of cool spots and really just run wild. There is no better feeling than when my couples trust me, and let me explore my creative side.
I’ll never forget this day. The day I got to watch two amazingly kind souls become one. I am eternally grateful that this is my job.
To Maggie + Kory: I adore you guys more than you could ever know!! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both because I know it is going to be amazing. LOVE YOU GUYS! <3
