{Jonna + Josh} Wedding Bend, OR | Bend, OR Weddings

Down along the Deschutes River near Meadow Camp Picnic area there is a private little spot for a wedding. This was the place Jonna and Josh had chosen to share their vows intimately. It was the location of their first day. An officiant was present as they both spoke privately to each other the words they had chosen, the phrases to describe their love, to one another. It was a beautifully intimate emotional exchange of love. I have known Jonna for quite sometime and I was happy to see her in love. We came to know Josh from seeing him at his brother’s weddings. So like a caddis flies on a cattail we moved about shooting the ceremony we could not hear above the din of the river rushing by. It was such an honor to photograph this wedding because of all of the history I have with these two. It was also a romantic emotional experience that was amazing to photograph. A true honor!

{Amanda + Erik} Crescent Bend – Wedding Knoxville, TN | Knoxville, TN Wedding Photographer

In the Great Appalachian Valley, near where Tennessee River starts lies the historic residence of Crescent Bend. Terraced Italian gardens lead you from the river to the storied residence that served both sides in the Civil War. Today, a spectacular spring day brought Amanda and Erik here to exchange their vows to one another. An intimate gathering of family and friends had come to join them and celebrate this great day. Their fathers each had their turn with the microphone, both toasting and roasting this amazing couple. All shared laughter and tears of joy. Funny costumes, a photo booth, imagination and play for everyone. Memories for a lifetime where the river starts for a Tennessee family. Thank you so much Amanda and Erik for hosting our trip to Knoxville, TN and for choosing us to capture your love story! Also a huge shout out to all the incredible vendors that made the day so special and gorgeous for Amanda and Erik. Everyone involved was incredibly friendly, accommodating, helpful and made us feel at home in TN. Enjoy a little sneak peek!

{For the Bride + Groom} Photo Shoot Locations

I’m often asked if I should “scope” out new locations I have never shot at prior to a wedding or engagement session. My typical reply is no. One thing that I thrive off of in the business of wedding photography is the (unexpected). I find it to be exciting, challenging and most of all inspiring. This past weekend I was asked to provide an engagement session at the University of Washington. I was excited of course as I had never captured photos on the college campus. When I arrived I was surprised to see literally HUNDREDS and I mean HUNDREDS of people with in the grove of cherry trees in bloom. I could tell by the look on my clients faces that they were a bit taken back and worried if we could possibly get any decent photos given the circumstances. I quickly told them not to fret and to ignore and pretend that they were the only people around… they looked at each other, embraced, giggled, and this is what I got!!!! The unexpected is challenging in the world of photography and this is what I live for!Like what you see? Please feel free to leave us a comment, we welcome your feedback!


Jennifer - I am interested in your fees for an hour of photography for an elopement. My fiancé and i live in AZ and are eloping to the Oregon coast in August. Your photos are what inspired me to have out ceremony on that coast! It will just be the two of us, August 9th, 2013. If you’re available, I’d love to discuss your fees. Thank you!
