Bobby & Courtney | engaged

Traipsing around downtown Portland is something I LOVE to do :) I love to explore and more importantly I love to show people around my home. I am ALWAYS begging people to come visit me just so I can show all my favorite spots. When Bobby and Courtney asked me where we wanted to shoot, I knew I wanted to shoot downtown for its culture, atmosphere, and just plain awesomeness. Since they would only be in town a few days we met up on Christmas Eve and went on our own lil' adventure. Poor Courtney had to walk all around in heels! I, on the other hand, have learned that I don't wear heels to shoots anymore. lol :)

Since it was Christmas Eve, there was a jolly spirit in the air and everyone was friendly... even though it was raining on and off. Courtney's parents tagged along and were the BEST assistants! Between them holding umbrellas over my head and keeping my peppermint tea warm, I felt like a superstar! haha. Thanks guys!
















The church was leaking steam! made for fun pics.






I knew Bobby through College and WAAAAAY back when, he and two other guys took my two best friends and I to the senior banquet thingy-ma-jig. They dressed up like complete dorks and serenaded us one night in the dining hall as a way of asking us to the banquet. I give MAJOR props to guys who arent afraid to make a fool of themselves. Anyway, of course we said yes... who wouldnt?!
So, then a few weeks before the event, they dropped off a CD with images of what they would wear to the banquet. I have rarely laughed so hard in my life. I swore that I would break these out on their wedding days.... here is me holding true to my promise ;)
