Benson Hotel Wedding Photography

Benson Hotel | Downtown Portland | Portland Wedding Photographer

It seems like just the other day I was photographing the beautiful gala put on by Kassab Jewelers where a man surprised his girlfriend with a proposal. And she said ‘yes’! And even better, I was there to capture it all!  Okay, actually it gets even better than that — I was then lucky enough to be their wedding photographer too. 🙂

Aaron and Sierra had a wonderful winter wedding at the Benson Hotel. It was just the two of them with a few friends and family. There was a lot of candle light and cozy fireplace warmth going on. It was perfect.



The red accents throughout were such a flattering tone for Sierra, I might add. 😉


And who says you must eat cake at your wedding? These two chose pecan pies and amaaaaaaaaaazing creme brûlée. Um, heck yes!


And even though it was a freezing night for Portlanders that day, Sierra and Aaron ventured outside for some photo ops as well as a horse-drawn carriage ride. A fantastic end to an even better day.


So happy to have been there with you guys that night and also at your proposal. It’s been a great adventure!
