A Castaway Portland Wedding

When Pete told me he was tortured as a child by being dressed up in costumes and enduring impromptu photoshoots from his mom, I knew I’d have to summon my spirit photojournalist for this wedding day. That’s not to say we didn’t manage to snag some beautiful portraits in the 5 minute threshold before old memories started flooding back, but for the most part this was a day where I glued myself extra hard to the shadows. I let things unfold without much input or interference on my part and just witnessed what happens when you get together friends, family and sorority sisters in a giant room filled with good food, home-brewed beer and hearts full with love.
