{Jill + Kent} Engagement Photography Session in Bend, Oregon & Mt Bachelor

November 23rd, 2014 : Engagements

We had a super fun engagement session with {Jill + Kent} who brought along their cute dog Corduroy!  Went over to Broken Top Resort for some images among the aspen trees and then up to Mt Bachelor for the snow and amazing views around Broken Top and Three Sisters Mountains.  Anytime we can have pets come with our clients we’re jazzed as it always lightens the mood and there’s always moments of comedy involved.  Congratulations on your upcoming wedding in the Bahama’s you two!!

























{Monique + Tyler} Engagement Photography Session in Bend & Redmond, Oregon

November 19th, 2014 : Engagements

These two high school sweethearts we’re inseparable from the beginning from what it sounds like!  For {Monique + Tyler’s} engagement session I decided to take them over to this cool area in Redmond, Oregon that has always gotten Wendy and I excited as we drive past.  From there we went over to this super cool (literally) lava tube cave where we shot outside the mouth and the finish off the day with some industrial backgrounds in the Old Mill District of Bend, Oregon.  I had a fantastic time with you both and really cannot wait to spend more time with you both at your wedding next year!!

As a fun side note and story that’s too good to pass up telling, while I was at the local public pool working out in the gym area, (after of course Shelby’s swim lessons), I was working on this machine when I began eavesdropping on a conversation between two ladies who we’re talking about flower companies in town.  99% of the time I probably wouldn’t say anything but I asked if they we’re talking about weddings and it turned out they were.  One of the ladies told me that her daughter was getting married and she was 100% in wedding mode!  Well, when she brought up her daughters name in conversation….it turned out I was their wedding photographer!  I love this small world!!
























{Jen + Victor} Engagement Photography Session Portland, Oregon

November 14th, 2014 : Engagements
{Jen + Victor} had their engagement session in Portland, Oregon recently and now you get to see the images of this beautiful couple!!  Peninsula Park was amazing with the beautiful roses (from the one and only rose city!) and spectacular fountain but it’s hard to pick a favorite as we also hit Cathedral Park which was super cool with it’s moody light at night.   Jen had obviously prepared for our session as her many natural poses made it seem like she modeled for a living rather than being a doc.   A much deserved special thanks to my brother Ted who assisted me as well and you guys rock for taking us to that awesome Mexican Restaurant!


Fall Family Portrait Photography Session; Bend, Oregon – Wilkinson Family 2014

November 5th, 2014 : Portraits

In love with this family’s session so much that we need to get out there and do the same for our family!  This fall family portrait photography session was shot in downtown Bend, Oregon at Pioneer Park.  Little Reed was born a week after Shelby and it was so much fun catching up on all his antics and the labor of love that is babies!  Nikki + Jason, you’re one of our biggest fans and we’ll always love you guys for it…thanks again for trusting us to capture those big moments for you both!  Can’t wait to see several of these hanging on your walls very soon.

{Holly + Jeff} Vandevert Ranch, Sunriver Oregon Wedding Photography

October 31st, 2014 : Weddings

A beautiful wedding in the woods of Oregon was the setting for {Holly + Jeff’s} wedding at Vandevert Ranch in Sunriver.  The ceremony location overlooked a picturesque river and the reception was only a short walk away taking guests underneath a circus tent for a rustic and elegant feel.  Directly behind the main tent was a stage and dance floor set for the awesome sounds of the band, “Hit Machine” who kept the dancing rockin and another separate tent set up as a scotch bar and lounge.  Thank you so much for choosing us as your wedding photographers for this amazing wedding you two!

{Jill + Nathan} Destination Wedding Photography in Duck On The Outer Banks, NC

October 4th, 2014 : Weddings

Words cannot describe the joy and emotion experienced when you see a close family member so in love and so in the moment on their wedding day!  I was honored to capture my sister-in-law and the love of her life as they married on the beaches of the Outer Banks of NC in Duck.  This delightful little town had incredible beaches, boardwalk and shops and was a perfect setting for their destination wedding.  Wendy was the matron of honor and put the camera down to share this special time with her sister, so I worked with a new friend and another talented artist, Jessica Arden to document these special moments!  As with practically every other wedding day this summer, we awoke to a bright sunny day with not a single cloud in the sky!  Everyone was delighted (after fretting the possibility of rain all week) and in the words of {Jill + Nathan}, “I wouldn’t have changed a single thing, it was a perfect day.”

They met in a sandbox at 3 years old, as their mothers have been friends for over 35 years, and although they crisscrossed life paths over the years, they always remained friends.  Nathan knew first that she was the one about 3 years before Jill did but when they finally came together, everyone knew that was IT!  It’s so cool to have an incredible family (The Willetts) to spend quality time with get to know this week!

We love you both and can’t wait to see where life takes you…we are here for you always!
