{Lindsay + Rick} Engagement Session Dillon Falls, OR | Bend, OR Wedding Photographer

We met with Lindsay and Rick at their beautiful home. Their yard is filled with lovely flowers that made for the perfect environment for a few engagement photos, and of course we had to include a few with the dog. Then we finished the engagement session at Dillon Falls. Dillon Falls are rapids in the Deschutes National Forest. The falls are a significant obstacle to whitewater running and are rated Class 5. The trails provide a view of the falls. It was fun to climb around on some of the rocks and utilize the gorgeous views of the river and falls. Enjoy a little sneak peek!177816721760182519241865l22119912283l228821811787Like what you see? Please feel free to leave us a comment, we welcome your feedback and our clients love it too!

{Family Portraits} Sparks Lake Central Oregon | Bend Oregon Portrait Photographer

Summer vacations with family always call for family portraits! And what better location then Sparks Lake. Sparks Lake is a natural body of water near the crest of the central Cascade Range in Deschutes County in state of Oregon. The lake is about 26 miles southwest of Bend along the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway in Deschutes National Forest. Many of the region’s mountain peaks, such as Mount Bachelor, Three Sisters, and Broken Top, are visible from the lake. The mountains make a beautiful back drop for portraits, especially in the early evening to sunset. Enjoy a little sneak peek!843a2814453101210991233150915691341Like what you see?

{Emily + Michael} Wedding The Long Farm Barn West Linn, OR | Portland, OR Wedding Photographer

Emily and Michael chose the fabulous Long Farm Barn in West Linn, OR to tie the knot. The historic working barn, built in 1900, is one of the best-preserved barns in Clackamas County and one of America’s finest. It is a ramp style barn featured on county historical tours and a tribute to Oregon’s old-growth fir trees of the late 1800′s. There is a historic sequoia tree – the largest tree in Clackamas County and third largest tree in Oregon – towering near the house and barn. The property has ties to the Daniel Boone family. The wedding ceremony took place under a beautiful stand alone tree just off to the side of the Queen Anne Victorian home, constructed in 1887 with distinctive features, sits atop the property. It is truly a magical location for a wedding. Emily and Michael couldn’t have had a more beautiful day for their wedding.

Lots of personal touches and details went into making Emily and Michael’s wedding day unique. Emily’s mother made all of the floral design. Michael’s mother is a quilter by profession and hand made 750 flags of which hung from the barn rafters. Emily’s sister performed the emotional and touching ceremony. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the crowd.

Catered with a delicious mexican dinner and signature lemonade cocktail. It was a perfect event. We couldn’t leave out the fact that Emily and Michael’s dog couldn’t attend the ceremony day. So they made a life size replica of their dog to be included in many of the photos throughout the day! Priceless!

{Abbey + John} Engagement Session Timberline Lodge Mt. Hood | Central Oregon Weddings

Timberline Lodge is a mountain lodge on the south side of Mount Hood in Oregon. Built in the late 1930s, this National Historic Landmark sits at an elevation of 5,960 feet, within the Mount Hood National Forest and is accessible through the Mount Hood Scenic Byway. It is a popular tourist attraction, drawing more than a million visitors annually. It is noted in film for serving as the exterior of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. We could not have been lucky enough with the weather for Abbey and John’s engagement session. It was a crisp, clear and simply gorgeous sunny day on Mt. Hood. They had never been to Timberline Lodge before as they are new to Oregon. We had a blast showing them around, admiring the views together, and getting to know this lovely couple more. We are excited to capture their wedding this fall at Brasada Ranch in Central Oregon.A5A10A7A1A2A3A6A11A13A12A9A4A14A18Like what you see?
