If I could sum up this wedding day in one word, it would be ‘happy.’ It was such a fun-loving, happy, happy day! Kateri and Trent were just surrounded by a blanket of happiness and you could see the happiness and true good will of all of their friends and family in seeing these two start their marriage together. With Portland staying true to herself, it even rained a bit, but it just made the whole vibe of the day even more cozy and warm. Kateri and Trent saw each other that day for the first look at the Cafe where they first met, which was such a fun idea. We then meandered around the streets of downtown Portland, which proved to be an adventure with the random photo bombers and drive-by circus performers who literally jumped out of their car, did a stunt, hopped back in the car and drove away. Only in Portland!
Most people do not look flattering from this ‘under’ perspective. Kateri is an exception. She looks stunning.

My favorite shot of the entire day…Rick composed this shot that would make Cartier-Bresson proud
It wouldn’t be Portland without the great public transportation in a shot!
The drive-by circus guys.
The random photo bomber.
The bride’s ladies.
The Trent and Kateri Show.
Look at that ring bearer’s expression! Priceless.
This shot of Kateri walking to Trent has to be one of my most favorite down the aisle shots ever! That’s why my word for this day is ‘happy’!
I love seeing the expressions of the guests during the Father Daughter Dance…here the Grandmother. It says it all.
