Adoration and Alpacas at Opal 28


Portland gets a lot of heat for being weird. Some folks love it, others hate it, but it’s the weirdness that makes us special. So it was no surprise when I found that the shoot I was flowering with Alena of Simply Korsun Photography that she brought in two alpacas for the day. Two brides, two grooms, and two alpacas--I think this is what the kids are calling “extra” but man it made for some really fun pictures. I’m not sure if the alpaca craze is a trend that is going to stick around, but the two that we got to hang out with made each picture a little more precious and much more unique. The alpacas were from the kind folks at The Wedding Llamas and if you’re wanting to find a way to “fluff up” your wedding day, hit them up!
