If you’ve followed my blog or know me personally, you’ll know that it’s rare for me to ever use the “less than 3” symbol to describe anything. It’s just not me. However, I am making a rare exception for Portland (big deal alert!). Kim Le and I came to PDX to photograph a wedding and ended up staying a few extra days to eat, explore, and soak up a new city. Turns out Portland graced us with some of its best weather this year. As we walked around the Pearl district after dinner on our last night, I said to her that Portland has quickly found a place in my heart.

Unfortunately, I didn’t think to take my camera everywhere, so I only have a few photos – mainly from the hike we took at Multnomah Falls. I’ll include some of the instagrams we took on our trip, but you’ll just have to follow me and Kim Le on Facebook¬†to keep up with the edible side of our my travels. Also included in this post are a few preview photos from Matt and Sarah’s wedding at the beautiful Abernethy Center. Congrats guys!

This last photo is of some of my favorite people, Celine and Justin, whose wedding I photographed last summer in France. I sneakily spotted this photo framed on their side table when they invited Kim Le and I over to watch the bachelorette finale at their chic Portland apartment.
