It was early September when I met with Taylor and Cole about photographing their wedding which was in a couple weeks. There was no time for an engagement session, but when I told them that I also have the option of doing Just Married Sessions. And that’s just what we did over the weekend. Even with the threat of freezing rain, we headed out to Oxbow Park and even though it was cold, it wasn’t icy.
Just imagine that you've been married for awhile, your dress is hanging in your closet (or maybe even in your parent's attic) and you loved or maybe wasn't completely satisfied with your wedding photos. Well, let me tell you about all the fun we could have with a Just Married Shoot, aka Bridal Session! One of my FAVORITE things to be apart of lately is this!
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.
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
