Tim & Liz’s Castaway Portland wedding is the quintessential modern day love story. A beautiful couple with absolutely everything to look forward to, a perfect setting and wonderful people surround them on one of their most memorable days. First, I started my day by photographing Liz as she was getting ready for the day.
The day was hot. HAWT. One of those days that kind of slap Portland upside the head to shout “summer is here.” We had a plan to keep everyone as cool as possible so we decided to photograph their first look in the courtyard of their apartments, where we had easy access to air conditioning. Yes, it mattered.
We went inside and headed to our second destination only a few short miles away. However, we had a huge transportation malfunction and ended up walking around a Portland neighborhood looking for any options to use as a backdrop. Consequently and quite surprisingly, we had access to a nearby apartment. We went up to the rooftop and found a little construction and the lovely city view as a backdrop.
The view was amazing, and Liz & Tim had no problems looking gorgeous against it.
Tim had a hard time looking away from Liz, and you definitely couldn’t not blame him because she’s absolutely gorgeous.
After a few more photos, we made it to the Pearl District and then Castaway Portland. I am so amazed at how calm and relaxed both Tim & Liz where through the small ordeal, because thankfully it really was just a small piece to such a beautiful day.
The ceremony at Castaway Portland went off without a hitch. I’m in love with how much natural light enters this very urban venue.
Light just surrounded Tim & Liz and they became husband and wife.
After the ceremony, the guest went outside to the patio for the cocktail hour. In the meantime, I stayed inside to capture the all the beautiful reception details I could lay my eyes on.
The rest of the night was fabulous. Everyone smiled and laughed as they danced and sang and cheered for the lovely newlyweds.
Thank you so much Tim & Liz for being such a delightful couple to photograph.
