Alex and Travis- Beer, Bridges and Books.

On my way home from Hawaii, I stopped in Portland, OR to shoot engagement photos for Alex and Travis! In my short amount of time there, I decided that Portland, Oregon is all about Beer, Bridges, and Books… oh yeah, and FOOD! I was seriously spoiled by this awesome couple all day long- amazing food, drinks and company!

While in their favorite beer store in Portland, Alex and Travis ran into this awesome vintage Schlitz ad, and decided to re-create it for their engagement photos! Alex is a knitter, (check out her knitting blog at: and Travis loves beer, so it was a perfect idea that I was thrilled to help out with!

Here’s the original.

And here is ours !

I looove this bridge!

…and this car… 🙂

We spent some time in Powell’s Books! It was HUGE, I could have spent all day there!

Another bridge!

Such a perfect ring shot for Alex.

After amazing french macaroons, we took advantage of the pretty wallpaper at Pix.

Thanks so much for your hospitality, Alex and Travis! I had a wonderful time!
