Rebecca & Michael had a touching ceremony, with a few non-traditional twists,  on a gorgeous July day at Bridal Veil Lakes. They greeted guests with a cocktail hour as they arrived, and in-lieu of a wedding party, had three different couples share some words of wisdom during the ceremony. It was a beautiful start to this new stage in their relationship & the surroundings were equally amazing!

Jen + Seth / Maple Leaf Events Wedding

Jen & Seth are the perfect example of two creative individuals coming together to form one amazing couple. Building on their creative strengths, they brought many thoughtful touches to this endearing celebration. Jen is a talented graphic designer and designed all of the paper goods, from their save-the-dates to the menus for dinner. Seth is an industrial designer & engineering wizard who created and built one of the coolest features for a wedding that we have encountered in quite a while: a wooden geometric sculpture that served as the backdrop for their head table (as well as an excellent photo background). It was an honor to document the wedding of this dynamic duo in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge!

Venue: Maple Leaf Events
Coordination: Ginger + You

Cameron + Jacob / Sunriver Brunch Wedding

These classically-trained musicians from the East Coast created a beautifully simple and unique wedding celebration for their family and friends at Sunriver, Oregon. Their morning ceremony at Sunriver Community Bible church was followed by a brunch-reception full of delicious goodness from Tate & Tate Catering in Bend. Everything was expertly organized by Mallory with Mint Event Coordination & Design.

Our favorite part of the day came after the couple departed from the reception. We had discussed a few options for portraits near Sunriver, but the couple decided on the more adventurous choice of a short hike up to Todd Lake just outside of town. (Yes, please!) It was a beautiful afternoon with sun, a light breeze, and vistas of the Cascades spreading beyond the tall firs.

Cameron is also a top-contender for our best-dress of the year award with her lovely BHLDN gown. The minimalist back, and simple design compliments her natural beauty so well! This was such a refreshing wedding to photograph, and we feel honored to have witnessed this day for such a sweet couple.

Meredith + Luke / House on Metolius Wedding

Meredith and Luke gathered their family and friends for a destination wedding at one of our favorite venues, House on Metolius. Nestled between a canyon and a meadow on the edge of the Metolius River in the middle of the Oregon Cascades, it is such a magical spot and a natural choice for bringing loved ones together for a multi-day celebration. The day of the wedding was stormy with passing rain showers, but this outdoors-loving couple didn’t mind one bit–Meredith really wanted some photos in the river, so just before sunset we took off for the river bank under stormy skies and made it happen. We love working with couples with such an adventurous attitude!

Bridie + John / Portland Engagement [on a boat!]

Some couples meet through friends, or online, or even at a bar. Well, John & Bridie met on a boat at a sailing race. Needless to say, there wasn’t much doubt about how we should approach their engagement photos. We met up on a long Summer evening and got out and set sail on the Willamette River just outside downtown Portland for some truly unique photos. Their wedding also proved to be one of our most unique of the year, so stay tuned!
