betsy & iya is a line of thoughtfully crafted jewelry, designed in Portland. It’s brick and mortar store is just a few blocks from my house in NW Portland, and I wear my fair share of b&i jewelry on the daily. When owners Betsy and Will asked me to shoot the company’s celebration of it’s expansion into a larger space, I was thrilled. Adorable wifey bartending team Mint & Merth served endless cocktails and Pacific Pie Company catered delicious fingerling pies. The b&i team expected a few hundred people to attend, but after a social media shout out from Portland Monthly, thousands of adoring hipsters and Portland fashionistas packed into the new space. Here are a few of my select images.
