I love photographing weddings, but photography sessions with horses will always hold a special place in my heart! And I do love it when dogs join in on the fun. This session had all that, plus a goat!
It was such a beautiful Willamette Valley evening and we had a grand time exploring the property, from the harvested oat fields, the back woods and creek, to the little stump behind their home.
From the florals, dress, rings, absolutely amazing sunset, or the fun dancing at the end, I really don't know where to start. Nikki and Adam's wedding day was so wonderful and I just loved capturing all of the moments.
I hope you're ready, because this was the most difficult wedding to pare down for a sneak peek. This destination wedding at the Oregon Coast was so amazing and with it being Oregon, the weather can be unpredictable and I think it was absolutely wonderful, especially for the sunset photos. This was the best sunset I've seen at the coast all summer!
I've been asked how far in advance weddings need to be booked and honestly, if I have your date available, I can photograph your wedding. Katii reached out to be five days before her wedding because unforeseeable circumstances made it impossible for her original photographer to capture her wedding day.
We started the day in a cute, boho inspired AirBnb with the ladies getting ready and then we hopped in our cars and headed to Reed College for bridal photos and first looks.
We found a beautiful brick building with a cascading staircase and greenery for bridal party photos, plus the first look with the groom and her father.
The reception hall was wonderfully decorated with all kinds of details and delicious traditional Russian food. The ceremony was beautiful from the candle lined aisle to the first kiss when they were pronounced as husband and wife.
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
