Portland Oregon Temple | Lake Oswego : Avery & Jacob

Updated: Dec 27, 2018

Avery and Jacob grew up not very far from each other in Eugene, Oregon! Although they had heard of each other, they didn't meet till college at BYU. Then, they were inseparable! This was my very first time in Oregon, let alone in the Pacific North West and I was smitten! You better believe that I had the typical "it's so green everywhere" reaction!

The Portland Temple is tucked away between beautiful tall pine trees. Considering it was officially winter, we were all very lucky as the rain held up and we just had a few light showers.

Being the oldest in their families, it was so cute to watch their younger siblings being so excited for Avery and Jacob.

They chose to do family pictures right outside the temple. Then we took pictures of the two of them in front of the iconic reflection pool and ended with a session in forest of moss!

Avery was a dream bride! She selected beautiful and meaningful details while keeping it so simple and classy. Considering her and her mom only had two months to plan it all, they sure did an amazing job! There was never a "forced/posed" moment. They were floating on cloud nine and so excited about their life together.

They then headed to back to their home town for a beautiful reception!
