Hoyt Arboretum is nestled in the forest above Southwest Portland, just minutes from Downtown. This ethereal woodland retreat has become well known as natural sanctuary right within the city. While one of Portland’s beloved parks, it also doubles as rustic wedding venue with towering fir trees bringing warmth and a feeling of intimacy. The Wedding Meadow and the Redwood Deck have quickly become a serene and romantic wooded paradise for local couples. Wedding guests will love exploring the plethora of walking trails and enjoy the short jaunt to the Hoyt Arboretum visitor Center. As Portland wedding photographers, any chance to embrace nature while simultaneously capturing beautiful portraits is an unexpected boon. With a woodland ceremony, many bride and grooms have completed their wedding reception at the nearby Hotel Lucia or The Benson hotel ballroom.
Caroline, better known as Coco to her family and friends, came to us with a unique idea for her Senior Portraits in Portland. She said, “Have you ever photographed colored smoke bombs?” Correct answer…nope!
Beth & Tyler
This engagement session was easy and relaxed, dripping in beautiful light and made even sweeter by the couple Daniel had the pleasure of photographing. What more could you ask for?
Hoyt Arboretum Wedding
Jen and Jen, better known as Jen Squared, are two of the sweetest people we have ever met. Jen Hecht is a local photographer so when she approached us to photograph her wedding, we were completely honored. We like the Jens a lot because they remind us a little of our marriage. Two happy people who are friends, partners and utterly in love. It was an honor to be there and to document their celebration.
