Portland Spring Couples Shoot with Spotted Stills Photography

Amy and Ryan looked amazing on their spring couples shoot with Spotted Stills Photography.

Amy happens to be a fellow photographer with Rosencrown Photography

I absolutely loved created this ranunculus floral crown. Although I design a lot of floral crowns {aka head wreath, halo} this one tops the list of my all time favorites. Luxurious Italian Ranunculus, roses, jasmine vine and texture in blush, white and green compliments this dusty mauve dress very well.
