Dancer Forest Oregon Wedding

This wedding was so beautiful. Taking place in a Southern Oregon wooded glen on the bride's parents property it was just filled with joy and personal touches. 

If you love Oregon like me, lots of hydrangeas, a bit of sun and magic glow, tall trees, summer flowers and beautiful people then you will love this peek~

Wisteria Gardens Oregon Wedding

This beautiful wedding took place on possibly the hottest day in Oregon for the summer of 2017. Wisteria Garden is a magic place full of lush cool green botanicals that kept us all shaded and cool. The getting ready areas were breezy and air conditioned, the fans misted everyone throughout the ceremony. I couldn't think of anywhere I'd have rather us all been on such a day.

Here is a peek at Mr and Mrs Wilson and their two adorable littles. So much love was felt throughout this day. Love and joy. Surrounded by their family and friends you could feel it radiating in the air.

Thank you for being so very kind and allowing me to be a part of your very special day.

Barefoot Bride Redwood Forest Wedding

There is just something so magical about the Redwood Forest. I feel its pull always. It speaks to me in whispers of centuries past. Within it time always seems to slow and stand still and I just breathe it all in.

This wedding there was so unique, beautiful, natural and earthy. I loved how intimate it was with close family and friends surrounding the bride and groom in an intimate grove of Redwood trees. Surrounded by sunshine, ferns and beautiful fallen logs full of mossy growth they said I do. 

Brides beautiful hair and makeup was by the talented Shawnie Curtis Makeup Artist out of Medford, Oregon. Florals were by my one of my favorites Penny and Lulu Studio Florist and the venue for the reception The Applegate Lodge.

Oregon Beach Destination Wedding

This incredible beach wedding was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined~

As most of us Oregonians know, days like this do not happen at the Oregon Coast all the time. It can be unpredictable and the rain can blow in at any moment. This evening was gorgeous! The house that hosted everyone was large and inviting with paths leading down to the beach to the ceremony site. The sun shone through at just the right moment and burnt off the fog, rolling it into the distance. Two beautiful people united on this day with their two beautiful children and family and friends on the beachfront. I was so blessed to have been able to travel to, witness and photograph it.

I loved the details of this wedding. There were dainty beach jewel sandals handmade by one of the bridesmaids for all the bridesmaids and flower girl, the brides daughter. The bride's barefoot sandals were by Sandals Amour. The flower girl dress was from Kutie Tuties. Handsome tuxedos for the groom, groomsmen and his son. Groom's tux by Yves Allure Men. Cake by Sugar Rush who always makes incredible confections. And last but not least were stunning florals by Cathy's Floral Creations.

Bigelow Wedding Columbia Falls Montana

Montana has my heart...

This Fall I flew back to shoot this incredible wedding in Columbia Falls with my good friend and photographer Jaci Brillon. Not only were the mountains in this region of our country breathtaking, so was this bride. Her horse, her beautiful mountaintop home and property on which she had her wedding and children.

Here is a peek at Mr and Mrs Bigelow~

I am so blessed to have been able to capture and witness this while on my visit to the Flathead area of Montana. Destination weddings and travel to capture special days for couples this past year have been a person with wanderlusts dream come true. I am always available to travel back to this great state for wedding bookings as well as many others. For more information please visit my website or contact me by email.

Oregon Bridal Inspiration: Painted Hills Fine Art Film

This styled session in the Painted Hills of Oregon was just the most incredible adventure. This particular set I shot at last light with Portra 400 film. We travelled up through Eugene, Oregon to pick up our gorgeous model Abby VanSteenberghe then on into Salem, Oregon to pick up some incredible florals from Ponderosa and Thyme before our journey to the desert. Lovely vintage rental items were from Rosewood Event Rentals in Medford, Oregon, the glorious ring from one of my favorite jewelers in our state By Angeline. Beautiful flowing skirts by Space 46. Calligraphy by Kelsey Malie Calligraphy and ribbons by Silk and WillowThis whole vision was styled and brought together by Lahna Marie Photography and these incredible vendors. I was so blessed to be able to do some film work and assist on this dream shoot of hers. She has been an incredible mentor and inspiration to me over the past two years and I simply cannot repay what she has gifted me. Here is a look at the Oregon Painted Hills in color following up my black and white Delta 3200 film post from earlier...
