Hannah + Jay Engaged // Portland Art Museum Engagement Session

Hannah and Jay are getting married this week, and even though I’m woefully behind on blogging, I was determined to get their engagement session posted before their wedding! Hannah and I have known each other for nearly half our lives, after we studied abroad together. I was so excited to meet Jay and shoot their engagement session over the summer while I was down in Portland. Hannah and Jay had one of their first dates at the Portland Art Museum, so it was only fitting that they also have their engagement session there. And, before their session, they told me they had some special outfits they wanted to wear for the engagement session. And well, they’re the best special outfits I’ve ever photographed. Check them out at the end!

Hannah and Jay, I can’t wait to photograph your wedding later this week!!

Prague on Film – Travel Photography // Personal Post

As many of you know, I’m a native American who has lived abroad. I lived in the Czech Republic twice as a student, and married a German. Our lives are this incredible mix of Germany and American and Czechia. A hodge podge of cobblestone streets, castles, wide open spaces, mountains, bikes, and long road trips. No matter where I have lived over the past 15 years, my heart has always had a piece missing. It’s the reason I travel so much. It’s the reason our daughter is bilingual.

I am so lucky to have been able to study abroad, so glad to have met my husband, but there are days when the homesickness is really hard. And no matter where we live, no matter how recently we’ve been back to Europe or have another trip planned, a part of our lives is always missing. It’s celebrating German holidays and Czech holidays quietly at home. It’s phone calls and texts and emails to friends and family far away. It’s long flights and castles and cake and friends you travel halfway around the world to see.

Last spring, I found amazingly cheap tickets to Prague and without really thinking, I booked them. I booked them because it had been 4 years since I had been back and I was desperate for my host family to meet my husband (who hadn’t made that trip with me) and our daughter. And today I realized, I haven’t shared some of the photos I took, photos of places I used to walk all the time when I lived in Olomouc and Prague, and I am feeling extremely homesick, as I always do in the fall, and so here you go.

Prague is a quirky place to travel with a little kid. It’s not exactly stroller friendly, and it’s not filled with playgrounds or kids museums, but Czechs love kids. I think it’s best as a town for tiny babies or for slightly older kids, but found parks and playgrounds. We stayed in Prague 6 this time, at this sweet family apartment near a bunch of embassies and I hadn’t spent much time on that side of the river when I lived in Prague. We loved the apartment, and we were so sad to leave.

In Olomouc, I got to show my family all the the places I used to go, and we spent a few days with my host family. It was so strange to see my old school, the main square, and all my old spots. We met up with a few friends in both Prague and Olomouc and it just…was so good to show my husband and daughter all the places I used to go all the time.

All these photos were shot on my Nikon FG 20 film camera, on Portra 160 and Portra 800.
