Spring is Right Around the Corner

Kiss-at-Jenkins-Estate-Jamie-Bosworth-Photographer

Jenkins Estate is one of our local treasures and has been a sweet spot for weddings forever. Unlike some of the venues that drape themselves in wedding fluff, this is a lovely old summer home listed on the National Register of Historic Places… 68 acres of gently groomed gardens and walking paths surround the 1912 English hunting-lodge style of the main house. There is a stable, a carriage house and a tea house… all of them offer different moods for different seasons.The wrap around veranda on the main house is a great place to be on a summer day! As a photographer, I like that the place seems so away from everything. It’s on the edge of Beaverton but somehow seems a world away from the daily grind.

Gretchen and Jerrod shared a grand kiss in the tea house before the crowd lit into “All You Need is Love” on kazoos… a perfect Spring day!

Making plans of your own? I’d love to talk to you. ;0)

Moonrise Over Chairs

The cocktail hour was rolling at my back when I stood on the veranda at Zenith Vineyards for a quiet minute… the air was October crisp on my face. A cool part of my job is to be responsible for bringing home the parts of the day that the lovers may not see… a chance to give them a little added dimension. I must confess, though, that I would have taken this just for myself in any case. Why not gather the pretty parts of any given day?
