While it'd be great if I always had a digital SLR or a fun film camera with me wherever I went, the reality is one of the ONLY things I'm truly sure to have with me is my iPhone. The 3Gs and new iPhone 4 take far better photos then my old 3G, but the Hipstamatic camera app makes it fun regardless of quality! Here are 10 photos from my phone :)

1.) Flying.

2.) Timbers Game

3.) Seattle

4.) Amanda

5.) Columia River Gorge

6.) Laura at the craft store

7.) the sunshine state

8.) Oregon Brewfest

9.) airport in Texas

10.) Hollywood Bowl

Nina & Johnny

Originally uploaded by SYeakle
Take one adorable couple, add the perfect cityscape, sprinkle with perfect weather, and a dash of vintage with an old electric piano. The result? A lovely engagement shoot!
It was a whimsical evening at the eastbank esplanade, perfect for another fall engagement shoot in good 'ol Portland, Oregon. Nina and Johnny were wonderful to shoot. I love that they chose to bring the piano too, to reflect a bit about them as a couple; I think Johnny is in about a dozen bands! All in all, a romantic set of fall photos!

Jess & Billy

photo BOMB

I had to choose the photo bomber for the main picture. I couldn't help it. What fond memories of a funny shoot. Jess and Billy met me out by the Rose Quarter to stroll beneath the steel bridge and create some engagement shoot magic. And magic is was when this guy DEMANDED he be in a photo for "the magazine". I don't know what gave him the idea that if I took his photo, it would be sure to be published, but here I am, publishing it online. I hope he sees in one day. In the mean time, I'm looking forward to taking MORE photos of this light-hearted couple on their wedding day next summer.
