A little over a month ago, I decided to spend my birthday week in Portland, Oregon. Not only is Portland one of my favorite cities, but it houses some of my best friends and the coolest humans. I had a few days of freedom after my year's first trip to Anchorage at the end of May, and I already had a flight to Portland, so it made my decision easy.
As soon as I knew I would be there, I wanted to shoot with a couple or two, and make the most of my time in the surrounding area.
Brett and Michelle were the very first couple that came to mind. I had met them more than a year ago when I was visiting some friends, and they joined us on our adventure to the coast. They are the most beautiful people, and as edgy as they come, and I knew I wanted an intimate shoot with them for my portfolio. I hardly had to pitch the idea to Michelle before she readily agreed. Score.
We all got cozy in Brett's Hillsboro apartment, Michelle slipped into her Happy Socks, and I began snapping away. I'm so excited to finally share these photos with you all. Press play and enjoy.
