I can’t wait to share the rest of the images from this gorgeous engagement session with you!
Warm, diffused sun rays streamed through a cove of trees, while everyone, especially Nick, anxiously awaited for Kim to make her way through the path of foliage and flowers. Her 1940′s vintage dress danced around her body as she gracefully and lovingly approached her groom. Layers of instruments filtered through the trees as joyous emotions and tears overcame the guests. Kim and Nick stood barefoot inside a circle of golden tipped antlers before an intimate group of their closest family and friends, to bind their love. After 10 years the day had finally arrived! It was a day filled with wonderful people, laughs, love, dancing, gratitude, a glorious sunset, a magical full moon, a gorgeous venue, and tons of fun! They say that you can tell a lot about people by the company they keep. I know this is true because with each interaction I documented and every person I met, all I could feel was true warmth, kindness, and love. Kim and Nick thank you for making me feel like a guest at your wedding. I have never had a bride pull me onto the dance floor to groove with her. I had such a blast and it was truly an honor to be a part of your magical day. I have never witnessed such a beautiful and unique ceremony as yours!
Dan and Christa’s love story is so beautiful and romantic! They even waited until the altar for their first kiss (and it was by far the best first kiss I have ever witnessed!!). The energy between this couple is so pure and strong. I am so honored to have gotten the opportunity to photograph them twice! Once for a love shoot and again for their engagement session. They are not only gorgeous, but such a blast to be around. They have so much fun together and the way he makes her smile is like nothing I have ever seen before. To a long, loving, joyous life together!
My honey took me on a surprise birthday getaway to mid-Eastern Oregon! I have been so busy that we had to wait until three weeks after my birthday to take our trip. It was definitely worth the wait! It was so inspiring and relaxing to explore new places in Oregon. The geography here drastically changes from West to East, becoming arid, brown, and desolate. I loved driving for miles through wide open spaces of emerald wheat fields backlit by majestic mountains, while we explored all of the old-fashioned tiny towns. The wild desert sage was the best aroma I have ever smelled….ever! It just fills the air with a clean, desert sweetness and if I could bottle it up, I would! The hotel we stayed at was a very neat old historic hotel in the smallest town I have ever stayed in my life.
And… I am so excited to finally have a cute portrait of Cam and I! It’s been a long time coming and I set this baby up on self-timer outside of a very unique winery.
