Here’s How You Get Hitched in Astoria, Oregon.

I’m not a photographer. But when our lovely friends Barbara and Aaron called off their wedding in order to elope at the courthouse in Astoria, how could I say no? I mean, look at these two.

The courthouse is right next to the Oregon Film Museum, housed in the former Clatsop County Jail. You might remember it from this. For the price of entry, Barbara and Aaron had an extra memorable wedding day.

Do you have friends that you loooooove? We do. We looooove these two. We met through mutual friends shortly after we moved to Astoria. And these guys were the ones who would hang out over beers with us for hours and hours. It was remarkable how quickly we met people who were so fricken cool.

We had a fun, awesome day.

Oh, my!

Love these guys. It was an honor to share their special day. I’ll gladly play at being a wedding photographer if everyone were this cool. It might give me a reason to upgrade from our little point and shoot.




  1. Your photography has improved quite a lot over the last few years. These photos provide insight into the personalities of the happy couple. One suggestion – watch out for power poles growing out of heads with street photography. (Now you won’t be able to not see it the pole every time you see that image! :-0)

    • Thanks, Patrick. I’m just glad they listened to me when I said, “Okay, so now stand in the middle of the street! No really! This is going to be great! Don’t worry about cars. They’ll stop for you, probably.”

  2. That really is a power pole growing out of my head. How insensitive of you.

    • Aaron, I’m not sure how you’ve gone this long without noticing your light pole-head. I’m sorry this was the way you had to find out.

  3. you are a really good photographer!! or are you phishing for compliments…
