Erika and Lionel’s Wedding at The Grotto

Portland Wedding Photographer - December 9, 2015

Erika and Lionel were married at The Grotto with a reception at The Nines Hotel in Portland.

I love working with good wedding planners, makes life so much easier for the couple and …

Amber and Matt at Mar Plata, San Pancho

Portland Wedding Photographer - December 24, 2008

Amber and Matt tied the knot at Villa de Roja, directly off the beach! The reception was at the beautifully decorated amazing Mar Plata Restaurant. In my opinion, Mar Plata is one of the best restaurants I have been to, so if you are in the Sayulita, Punta Mita, Bucerias, Puerto Vallarta or Nuevo Vallarta area, make sure to visit them. It is worth a …
