Aloha, and welcome to Julia Bach Photography, Hawaii Photography Blog

Not every photographer is lucky enough to call Hawaii his or her studio. The Islands provide some of the most dramatic and beautiful backdrops for a wedding, family portrait, or event. From lush tropical rainforests, to expansive sunsets, being a Hawaii photographer on the island of Oahu is certainly living Aloha (the breath of life).

Chloe and Scotty are one of my favorite couples who also call Hawaii home. Since both were from the West Coast they decided to celebrate their love at Cathedral Park in Portland Oregon. After having a horizontal rain downpour for the entire week leading up to the wedding, no one was anticipating the sun to come out for a rare, beautiful, and warm Portland Wedding Day.

Both Chloe and Scotty are such warm and giving people, and their friends and family are no different. Everyone came together to make this a unique and extraordinary celebration. The day began at the very unique Kennedy School Hotel, which had such a magical charm to it. Chloe’s bridesmaids were buzzing around, doing each others hair and makeup, and providing the bride with plenty of coffee, donuts, and champagne.

Then the beautiful wedding couple was blessed in what was one of the most beautiful October days that Portland has to offer. Their ceremony in Cathedral Park was both majestic and intimate. Surrounded by many friends and family bringing their two worlds together even more. They continued the celebration at the Alberta Street Pub which Chloe’s friend from childhood Jango owns. It was a true Portland celebration, with lots of delicious beer, mustaches, and friends. I always am so thankful to be a Wedding Photographer who can travel, my time in Portland was one of the most easy going and fun Weddings to date!
