Vintage Oregon Snow Photography & Portrait Session

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different. And if this is not enchantment, then where is it to be found?" ~JB Priestley

Snow in some places is a seasonal event but here in Southern Oregon it is a rare and magic gift to us all. I remember praying for it as a child. To wake up to that white glow and quiet. To know that the day to follow the world was going to be pure and fresh and serene. I love the Pacific Northwest and how it encompasses such a variety of seasons and colors. 

Beautiful Darian went out with me this morning to embrace the day as it unfolded. Some clothes from my props closet with a bright pop of red, a gorgeous ring and a vintage camera added finishing touches to the magic.

Here is a peek at our fun~

 

 

Sweet Cheeks Winery Styled Wedding

Sweet Cheeks Winery is one of the most lovely venues I've had the opportunity to photograph at. Located in the Southern Willamette Valley here in Oregon it has stunning views of the surrounding areas like no other. This beautiful location provided such an incredible dramatic backdrop for our wedding portraits on a Spring Oregon day. As we know Oregon weather can change at the drop of a hat. On this day we were served rain, sunshine, rainbows and then sunset skies! 

Special thank you goes out to Peachy Keen Coordination for bringing this together for us. And to my incredible partners and photographer friends Heather Mills and Lynn Marie Chapman for this adventure.

Thank you so very much to our incredible vendors for coming together as well~ Sugar Momma's Bake Shop for a beautiful cake, Hardcore Florist for a gorgeous bouquet, Off The Vine Calligraphy for stylish invitations, Poppies and Top Hats for WOW props, Merrime Bridal for a gown fit for a princess, Meghan Donahue Custom Jewelry for rings and pretty things and to Felicia Knapp for hair and makeup and to Cheri and Shel for modeling.
