Emilio :: One Frame :: Portland Birth Photography

Home births are beautiful … the moments are all so special and incredible. The calm that lingers over the experience is palpable, and even though it’s a bit unreal, it feels so natural … like this is the way life is meant to be brought into the world.

Feeling so blessed to have spent these hours with this sweet family.

Here’s one frame.

Matt & Tiffany :: Married

We had been preparing our house to go on the market that day, landscaping to be exact. We sat in our dining room, with mud covering our shoes & pants. The first time we talked to them … it was through a computer, over 2,000 miles away. Matt & Tiff would end up being the very first couple we booked in Portland, Oregon.

They mean the world to us. In some ways, it was the very last piece of the puzzle that let us know moving across the country was meant to be. 

Their story is many, many years in the making. I think it’s more special that way. 

The day of their wedding, we worried about rain. It had rained each of the seven prior days, and on that day, it was perfect. 

There were nerves, happy tears, laughter & love. 

This is the story of the day Matt & Tiffany became husband and wife.

Matt & Tiffany :: Laugh Lab

One thing we really love about our job is capturing the real love that our clients have for one another … it’s those moments between the big moments that really make our hearts flutter (a soft kiss, that look of, “whoa! we’re getting married today, etc). After the ceremony, most of the nerves/anxieties have lifted, and then another really awesome thing happens: we have a whole lot of fun! At most of our receptions, we set up our photo booth, aka the Laugh Lab, and watch the guests get crazy. Since we just moved to Portland, the Laugh Lab is new here, so we wanted to give it a proper introduction … 

Matt & Tiffany and their wedding guests were the PERFECT group to break the Laugh Lab into to Portland … They did not disappoint!! Here are a few of our very favorite images … scroll to the bottom to see the full slideshow!
