Have I told you that I love weddings? Well, I do and this one was amazing. It was amazing because people traveled from near and far to celebrate Laura and Kevin!
Laura and Kevin tied the knot at Abernethy Center's beautiful Veiled Garden on a chilly, but beautiful October day. Every moment was genuine and swoon worthy from the match box favors "a perfect match" to the (out of season) peony loaded bouquets, Laura's amazing dress to the hand tied bow ties, and first dance to the bubble exit. Oh, and of course their vows was a major highlight!
Yesterday as I was driving up to Corbett, there were dark clouds and thunder rolling through the hills. But as we were preparing for the ceremony, the clouds parted, blue sky appeared, and the sun shined as Rae and Cole said I do under the trees.
I'm excited to show you the highlights from their wedding day, from the sunflowers to the s'mores, the rings to the fire pit, and sun flares to sparklers.
Raise your hand if you love doughnuts! I'm raising my hand, are you? Now, raise your hand if you knew that you could tie the knot at Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland. Yep, that's right!
I had the pleasure of capturing all the fun and love at Voodoo Too this summer for Rachael and Martin. They are such a fun couple and I'm dying to share some photos with you!
It's easy to say that love was in the air, but it's totally true for Marie and Kyle's wedding! Here is a sneak peek of all of my favorites from the day they said, "I do!"
Sometimes it's best to start with the ending, which was a fantastic sparkler exit for this autumn wedding.
There's a day that many girls dream of, their wedding day. Jennifer knows everything about Disney princesses and she had a beautiful princess wedding. It was a small gathering of family and friends for an outdoor ceremony and reception in a garden setting.
After the "I do's" Jennifer and Das had the opportunity to step inside the historic house at Deepwood Estates for a couple photographs. The house was full of vintage furniture, stained glass windows, and Persian rugs. It was truly a setting fit for a princess.
You're in a serious relationship and you can see yourself spending the rest of your life with them. Then comes talk of marriage. The excitement takes over and you're contacting different venues, florists, bakers, caterers, bridal dress shops, DJs, and everyone else you can think of. But once the big day is over, all that will help you remember everything by will be your photographs.
It's very important to choose a wedding photographer who you enjoy their images. Every photographer has their own style and that how they will be capturing your big day. As you're looking through photographers on Facebook or Instagram, don't just look at the photos on their accounts, but also look at their portfolio's on their websites, too. A lot of photographers have their package options listed and some even have a la carte options, and some may include print releases while others only include printed photographs.
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
