When I landed in Portland I was greeted with intense humidity and warmth that was a bit unexpected given that we I had touched down in a quintessential Pacific Northwestern state known for its temperate climate and incredible redwood forests. Shooting a wedding in this kind of heat is never preferable but, given the subjects, how could I possibly complain?

Beyond simply being beautiful, these two exemplified happiness and, by extension, kindness. From opening up their home to family / guests / your humble photographer to allowing said photographer to use their car for trips into the mountains days before the wedding, Daniel and Ally were solid across the board.

And, after several long weekends of work, I’ve compiled a collection of images that I feel best sums up the day / night – joyous and a bit rambunctious. Enjoy!
