San Francisco

San Francisco on Film by Jessica Lyons Photography - Pentax 645n

City by the Bay

My husband and I recently got to stay in San Francisco for a week! I hadn’t been there since I was a kid, so it was awesome to get out and explore more of the city. We seemed to have brought the Oregon rain with us, because it was only nice out for a couple days. The rainy days we spent eating awesome food, taking Lyft everywhere, and wine bar hopping. The nicer days we got out and explored the touristy spots! I loved the hike up to the Coit tower, the 360 views of the city were incredible.

Chinatown was probably my favorite place and it really did remind me of being in China! We had lunch at Hunan Home’s, which was pretty darn authentic compared to all the other American Chinese food I’ve had ; ) My other favorite part of San Francisco is how adorable and unique all the apartment buildings are, each home just has so much character. No wonder they’re so spendy! I hope these photos inspire you to check out this awesome city sometime.

Beach Bridal Boudoir in Greece

Bridal Boudoir in Greece

Lace, sand, ocean blue, and gorgeous light.

This incredible bridal boudoir shoot on a beach in Methoni, Greece literally felt like a dream! We started an hour before sunset and each of the Bohême workshop attendees had just about 7 minutes each to capture this beauty. I thought I might have a few good images from it, but was completely blown away when I received these scans back from Richard Photo lab! Marina, our model, was so amazing as she danced around the beach and expressed such joy to portray the vision of the shoot.

Greek Engagement

This Olive Grove engagement session in Greece was right after a thunder and lighting storm and a downpour of rain! Once the sun came out, the light was absolutely magical and it brought out the most beautiful colors and tones. I love how the Bohême Workshop creative team kept everything relaxed, simple and neutral while letting the colors of the Olive Grove and warmth from their skin bring the images to life. This real couple from Greece and Romania is so natural and sweet together. I love the way he looks at her with a giant meaningful smile!

Costa Navarino, Greece

Romanos Resort at Costa Navarino, Greece | Jessica Lyons Photography

Costa Navarino on the mainland of Greece is by far the most luxurious and relaxing place I’ve ever stayed. We stayed here for the Bohême Workshop where we photographed amazingly beautiful styled shoots. We also had downtime to relax and enjoy the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, lounge in the hammocks, swim in the infinity pools, and take in all the beauty around us. If I had known this place existed before, I would have totally gone on my honeymoon here! Within a short driving distance of the resort are many charming Greek villages like Methoni and Finikounda. I would definitely recommend Costa Navarino if you are looking for a relaxing getaway and also want to experience Greek culture!

Northwest Elopement

Northwest Elopement in the Columbia Gorge | Jessica Lyons Photography

Featured on Magnolia Rouge

The beauty of an elopement is the freedom to be married in the most captivating surroundings without limitation. The world is full of amazing places to elope, but the Northwest in my eyes is one of the most astounding. For this shoot we were inspired to aim for simplicity, to embody the natural scenery. Leanne Marshall’s dress “Emma” is the perfect blend of simplicity and elegance. The shades of blush and orange in the florals both contrast and compliment the surrounding greenery and the Mignonne Handmade hair piece provides the perfect goddess-like touch.

Kendra Senior Portraits

Kendra | Portland Senior Portraits by Jessica Lyons Photography

Senior sessions are always a good time, especially when I get to photograph such lovely, sweet people like Kendra! We went up to North Portland and took photos along the beach of the Columbia river. My favorite time for Portland senior portraits is in the fall, there are so many colors, everyone has new fall clothes, and the air is crisp and cool.

Greek Bridal Inspiration

Grecian Bride Wedding Details at Costa Navrino, Greece

Featured on Style Me Pretty

Inspired by ancient greek sculptures of the the goddess of love, Aphrodite, this shoot captures feminine and emotional beauty in form and style. We focused on the gentle shapes, lines, and poses demonstrated in greek sculpture. The Boheme Workshop stylists chose a stunning Alexandra Grecco gown because it beautifully created distinct lines as it flowed and draped across her body. Costa Navarino is of the most beautiful resorts in Greece and we loved the gorgeous stone walls that created a simple and lovely backdrop. It’s also the perfect place for a destination wedding!
