Wedding ~ Portland, Oregon Wedding Photographer

 On September 10th, 2020, KLJ Studios Photography was honored to photograph owner Kelly Lynn's brother Matthew's wedding. The wedding took place at Cathedral Park in Portland, Oregon. The Lead Photographer was KLJ Studios' Lead Photographer Kelly Lynn.

And what a wedding it was! As if a worldwide pandemic wasn't enough to work around, the state of Oregon was on fire and we were racing the clock to hold the wedding before the air quality became dangerously unbreathable. (Our thoughts are still with the people of Oregon and the other Western states as they continue to deal with raging fires and the accompanying horrible air quality.)

Matthew found the perfect place for the wedding, Cathedral Park in northwest Portland. As you can see, it looks like a cathedral, but with the added advantage of being outside. The couple opted for a very small wedding so that the ceremony was COVID safe, with the attendees being able to easily socially distance themselves. Face masks bearing the couple's picture were made and distributed adding some fun to the state's mask requirements.

The reception was held at their home and, once again, the informal style was chosen so a larger number of guests were able to socially distance and still enjoy each other's company while partaking of the charcuterie and excellent wedding cake. Everyone felt safe, but were still able to enjoy the festivities. 

This is an excellent example of how you can still have your wedding, with some changes, and still have a great time. This couple reserve the option to have a big blowout reception later on for one of their anniversaries.

Little brother, thank you for allowing me to have the honor of photographing your wedding. I'm so excited to have Jake as part of our family. I know because of COVID you couldn't have as much family there as you would have liked, but I was honored to stand be there to represent the family.
Thank you ~ Kelly
