{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!

{Brooke + Patrick} Seattle, WA Engagement Photo Session

February 6th, 2014 : Engagements

Brooke + Patrick are one solid couple!  When it’s their engagement photo session in Seattle, WA and it’s raining sideways you tend to see how well couples work together, (to keep warm after their coats have been off for a while in 35F weather!!).  There’s been this running joke between Wendy and I of how we have this seriously laughable good weather karma when we have photo sessions coming up.  We’ll be driving somewhere and it’ll be pouring rain but when we get to the location the skies open up and everything is beautiful.  Well……that didn’t necessarily happen to Brooke + Patrick but I will say that not only did we capture this really cool couple together, (without floating away), we were stoked to get some really unique images of the two of them at the Fremont Troll, (I love how the troll has the Seahawk’s 12 painted on his face!) and Fremont Bridge plus the Olympic Sculpture Park.  You guys were awesome today and can’t wait to see you again at your wedding!!








{Our Maternity Session} – Tacoma, Washington

January 26th, 2014 : Everyday Moments

We are DELIGHTED to share with you the favorites from our recent maternity session at 32 weeks! We traveled through Tacoma, Wa on our way to another shoot in Seattle and stopped over to have some fun with friends and photog colleagues – Ike & Tash! We first met them when I was doing a photography speaking tour on the west coast about web marketing a few years back and these two were so friendly and warm we totally hit it off! Since then, they’ve exploded and done some pretty awesome stuff and we were delighted to circle back and take the opportunity to have them get some urban fun shots of us and the BELLY!

We love you Ike & Tash, thanks so much for doing this and being a part of our baby journey :)

Here’s some of our favs from the shoot!

We put together a little VIDEO slideshow of the favorites below along with some of the images!  Enjoy!
