  • Grace + Nick's Offbeat Rustic Wedding

  • In continuing our unintentional theme of "offbeat" weddings, I'm ending our features today with a very picturesque wedding. Our gorgeous bride Grace opted to wear a stunning vintage purple dress for her day, and the couple chose to wear color stones instead of "traditional" diamonds for their rings.[...]
  • Mia + David's Sweet & Wholesome Wedding

  • We all know that planning a wedding is no easy task. When the wedding is a very DIY wedding... well, that certainly requires months of advance planning and executing, and of course, talented friends and family. For our super creative and talented bride Mia, she knew exactly what her dream wedding wo[...]
  • Erin + Cameron's Thrifty & Stylish Wedding

  • First thing that popped in my head when I looked through Erin + Cameron's photos by Shirock Photography was the word character. This couple is not shy about expressing how much fun they are having nor how in love they are, a quintessential combination that every wedding photographer dreams of for th[...]

  • Ashley + Joey's Eco-friendly Costa Rica Wedding

  • Chandler + Valerie

  • After the bright colors of yesterday's wedding, we're slowing it down a bit with a laid-back beach affair to send us into the holiday tomorrow. Chandler and Valerie were married on Florida's Palm Island, which is accessible only by boat or ferry. Once you're on the island you can only get around [...]
  • Ashton + Amy

  • Amy and Ashton had a delightful summer wedding at a reinvented children's summer camp. They hung tons of bunting (ooooo bunting, how I love thee), and used a canoe for holding drinks. The couple also created a photobooth and sweets table for the guests, and decorated the gorgeous ceremony space with[...]
  • Madeleine + Matthew

  • It may be because I live in Portland which is one of the  most bike-friendly cities in the country, but the wedding of Madeleine and Matthew and its tandem bike stationery makes my heart sing. The biking elements contributed to an overall theme of New England country in autumn, and the families of t[...]
  • Emily + Michal

  • The photographer who submitted this wedding to us called the nuptials of Emily and Michal "a whimsical autumn wedding among the redwood trees," and it is the best description of the day. I love featuring a wedding where the love is so palpable, the DIY details so abundant, and the venue so stunning.[...]
  • Ashli + Dan

  • This wedding makes me swoon. Full-on, hand-over-heart, big-sigh swoon. Ashli decided to light the ceremony and reception with candlelight to evoke romance and a soft feel, and the result is amazing. Shopping locally for everything, she created the florals, the favors, and the gifts for her bridesmai[...]

  • Kris and Camille were married in an outdoor setting in the gorgeous woods of California at Camp Augusta, and the entire gallery of photos from their day is stunning. Going for a casual and laid-back vibe, Camille and Kris created packages of s'mores as favors for their guests, Camille's aunt designe[...]
