Portland Waterfront Wedding: Michael and Gina

If you haven’t seen their Cathedral Park Engagement shoot, visit it first because you’ll see the first chapter in this love story there.
August 23rd, however, was the final culmination of many plans and conversations. It dawned a beautiful summer morning, promising to heat up as the day progressed. Gina is both city-girl and country queen and really wanted to capture a part of both worlds in her wedding photos.  Because the ceremony and reception would be held at their private estate in Camas, we decided to get ready in the C-T studio and do their “First look”  downtown.

When Gina came out of the dressing room, Michael with back turned, started whistling a love song he would later sing as she walked down the aisle. Their smiles were effortless as they laughed together, finally ready to let the day unfold. Hand in hand, sunglasses on, we hit the streets and photographed around the city.

When we arrived at their home, family and friends were bustling around with the last finishing touches while guests enjoyed signature cocktails at their homemade bar. The light was just turning golden as Gina, serenaded by Michael,  walked down the steps to meet him. Everyone cheered as they made a new family, eyes wet, hearts full.

Thank you Gina and Michael for entrusting me with your wedding day memories, it was certainly a delightful evening and I wish we could do it all over again. I have never laughed so hard at a wedding in my life! I got a whole new insight into who you are through your vivacious, loving, and incredibly funny family and friends. It was a night filled with music, happiness and warmth. At the end of the night I really didn’t want to leave (who would with that killer band?). Thank you again- we still need to shoot with that killer car of yours Michael 😉 portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0190 portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0199portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0194portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0198portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0201portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0192portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0202 portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0205portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0191portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0197portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0203portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0204portland fashion wedding photography christa taylor_0200

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 didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

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! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
