Lauren + Ian's Lush Waterfall Engagement – Portland, Oregon

Lauren and Ian are two of my closest friends. In fact, they met at my wedding! I couldn’t have asked for two better loved friends to fall in love with each other. They now live in Brooklyn with their pup Abbey, but we went back to Lauren’s hometown of Portland, Oregon for their engagement photographs.

On this crisp winter day, Lauren and Ian snuggled up for their engagement session at Multnomah Falls. Waterfall mist covering their faces, they were all smooches and smiles.

Alice + Catie's Jumpin for Joy Engagement – Brooklyn, NY

Alice and Catie wanted to celebrate their love in the most colorful way possible! I love adventuresome couples. Alice and Catie are two enthusiastic, kind, badass Brooklyn ladies. Catie works at Kickstarter HQ, and Alice is a dentist primarily serving New York’s LGBT community.

From the Bushwick Collective murals, to the cherry blossoms on Roosevelt Island, Alice and Catie were up for anything. We ended the day in a burst of color by the East River. Covered head to toe in Holi powder, Alice and Catie couldn't stop giggling. It made me realize again just how contagious love is.
