Kyle and Hanna Conway | Postelwaits County Weddings Portland Oregon Wedding Photographer

Portland Oregon wedding photographer at Postlewaits Country Weddings

What if your own wedding was the first one you ever attended? For Kyle and Hanna, this was true! I met Hanna in high school and was totally elated when her mother, Terra, called me this past winter and said that her and her husband were surprising Hanna and Kyle by gifting them their wedding photography. We were honored and thrilled to be apart of this exciting time for the Haggerty and Conway families.

After chatting with Hanna and Kyle over FaceTime for the first time, I learned that their wedding was the first either would attend in their adult lives. How flipping incredible is that?! These two moved from West Virginia to Porland, Oregon together to pursue their careers and love of the outdoors, and their wedding day mimicked all of their wonderful personality traits. Needless to say, I felt right at home when John Denver’s “Country Roads” came on and I realized that nearly everyone at the wedding was a MOUNTAINEER from WVU! Their emotional ceremony at Postelwaits in Canby, Oregon was followed by a wonderful reception party at the barn!

Mr. & Mrs. Conway, thank you so much for having us be a part of your amazing wedding day! You are truly a special and amazing couple and we couldn’t be more excited for your journey into marriage. Love you guys!

Mike and Tay

• Having done a first look, what did you love most about it? Would you do it again?  “After the first look, we both felt our nerves melt away. That was so helpful. We were nervous the entire morning until we did the first look. We loved that we got some alone time before everyone else showed up! I wouldn’t have wanted to do it any other way!”

• How did Kyle propose? “Kyle proposed to me at the rose gardens in Washington park in Portland. He planned it to be when both of our parents were visiting so they could also be apart of it!
