{Annie + Brad} Broken Top Club Wedding Photography; Central Oregon

April 10th, 2014 : Weddings

Wonderfully warm for Bend in mid-February, {Annie + Brad}’s wedding was amazing to attend at Broken Top Club in Central Oregon!  This wedding was classic and elegant with little personal touches like the peach color ties and pocket watches for the guys and Annie’s dress that was a two piece with beautiful separate top.  Their wedding was a true showing that with what ever happens, everything looks amazing, as I’m referring to the fact that the day prior to the wedding, Annie accidentally broke one of her shoes and through the help of Brad and other friends, she had 3 new pairs of the same shoe to choose from at the wedding, (with a choice of different size).  So what are they doing now?  We’ll not only we’re they planning a wedding last year…it turns out they are philanthropists as well and will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro this September to raise money for children with AIDS in Africa.  All the best to you both on your mission!  Wendy and I look forward to new adventures with you both!!

Introducing Shelby Roe!

March 26th, 2014 : Everyday Moments

We are delighted to share some fun images to the world of our new baby girl, Shelby! She was born on Feb 27th and is celebrating her 1 month birthday tomorrow with a trip to Vegas :) After just 10 days, we met up with Julia at Jewel Images for her official ‘newborn’ session to capture her fun smiles and sleepy time beauty as well as full family shots! Boy was it fun to be on the client side in front of the camera! She did an awesome job and peed and pooped on everything (as well as peed on us – see the last shot)…sorry Julia! Special thanks to her assistant as well, Tiffany, whom also treated Shelby with love for her first modeling gig :)

Enjoy our favs from the session! We’re tickled pink with her and can’t wait to see her grow!

{Laura + Brian} Portland, OR Engagement Photo Session

March 20th, 2014 : Engagements

I met {Laura + Brian} out at the McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse & Imbrie Hall in Hillsboro just west of Portland after driving the prerequisite 3 hours from Bend while it rained the entire time.  Thinking that we might be doing much of their engagement session inside, just as I pulled into this eclectic area that only the McMenamin brothers can create so well, it stopped raining and it was game time!  Usually when I meet a new couple for the first time at their engagement session I want to sit and chat a while to give them a little pep talk so to speak but in this case we all thought it best to not chance the monsoon that could be right around the corner.  So off we went to this sweet octagonal barn on the property to start and I was so impressed how {Laura + Brian} immediately just started joking with each other with this relaxed air to them and I knew the session would not only be fun but easy to get super natural and emotional images of the two of them.  At some point our chatting came around to their winery around Grants Pass, (yes, these two make wine-how cool is that!), and we see this shed and the talk goes to, “hey, I wonder if there’s anything cool in there?”.  So we go in and it turns out there’s this sweet 1800′s French copper distillery where their making at the moment small batches of brandy, gin and other sweets to tickle your palette.  The master of this contraption is a fella by the name of Bart and not only did he let us photograph around the distillery, he even gave us a history lesson of the distillery and how it’s all done – Bart, your awesome!   I only have one thing to say to you all out at McMenamins Roadhouse, Thank You for making {Laura + Brian}’s engagement session super memorable!  {Laura + Brian}, we can’t wait to see you guys again for your wedding at Langdon Farms!

{Sarah + Rick} Tetherow Resort Wedding Photography; Central Oregon

March 19th, 2014 : Weddings

{Sarah + Rick} are in my car and we’re driving up to Virgina Meissner Snowpark where there’s snow to get some cool, (yep cool) images of the two of them in the white fluffy stuff.  Typically, we would have learned a ton about them during the engagement session but in the case of  {Sarah + Rick} I actually had just met them 15 minutes prior at their ever so sweet wedding venue of Tetherow Resort.  So being the car nut I am, (many women at this point start to roll their eyes), I throw out a few typical questions to get to know them better: “where/when did you guys meet”, “how long have you been engaged”, “do you like cool cars”?  When Sarah and Rick both jump on that last questions and start talking about classics and muscle cars I know I’ve struck a cord and in minutes we’re all friends chattin’ about our rides!  Actually turns out Ricky owns a body shop in Eugene so he eats and breaths cars – even races them for that matter!  How funny this small world really is eh?!  So please enjoy {Sarah + Rick}’s wedding day from beginning to end and don’t forget to never stop loving!
