Sauvie Island holds a place near and dear to the hearts of most Portlanders. I have fond memories that have formed over the years that all seem to be defined by season. The Dauber wedding is one of the summer Sauvie Island memories that I can now look back on. It took place at the Bybee House on a day that could define an Indian summer.
Upon arriving on location, I was instantly excited by the house itself. There’s something about old white houses that tug at my heartstrings. First order of business: snap a good photo of it. Second: Picture how I’m going to draw it on their personalized labels.
I also had the honor of being the assistant photographer to James Fitzgerald III (who has just asked me to marry him and is now my fiance!). We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the beautiful family and scouting out good spots for photo opportunities. It’s hard to go wrong with an apple orchard and greenhouse to sneak into.
As a photographer, you get to spend a lot of time with the bride. Amongst all the chaos that ensues on a wedding day, I’ll always remember the southern elegance and grace Emily glowed with that very hot summer day. What a special thing to witness. Congratulations, Corey and Emily. Thank you for letting Jay and I be part of your wedding. We are always praying for you!
