Camp Colton Wedding: Kendi + Derek

It was one of Portland gorgeous overcast days, soft light filtered through the trees as we made our way into the green recesses of Camp Colton. Overshadowed by giant Fir and Cedar trees, Kendi and Derek vowed their life and love on May 10 surrounded by much beloved family and friends.
You can see Kendi’s touches in every aspect of her wedding, from the mossy wood rounds at the alter to the mini terrarium favors that each guest brought home. Who doesn’t want to go to a wedding where the kids get target practice with nerf guns on inflatable animals?? Such a hilarious and brilliant idea coming from this creative duo.

It was such a privilege to capture this wedding and to celebrate alongside two people who love each other so much. To see these two tight-knit families come together is truly such a beautiful story.

Many blessings to you both Kendi +Derek- may your marriage grow and become ever richer as you navigate life together. Many congratulations and much appreciation- Christa

While Kendi and her Derek decided to forgo any “first dances” this moment between father and daughter right before their departure left me choking back tears.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didnโ€™t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. 

WE ARE SOULMATES

WHY we're the perfect match

"Christa, you are such a delight to work with. You bring so much energy and direction to a photo shoot. The photographs you take, are truly a reflection of your talent and passion in photography."

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! ๐Ÿ’•There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! ๐Ÿ’•We love you Christa!!
