Christine and Brandon -Southern Oregon Couples and Wedding Photography

When Christine and Brandon decided to tie the knot, they hoped to get married on this stunning mountain range, but opted for a private estate wedding on her parent's property at Rock Creek Meadows instead. Their day was perfect, but having this separate session allowed us to capture the mountaintop feel they had dreamed of, after their wedding ceremony. This was a very intimate after session, that provided time to enjoy the views and breathe the fresh air! Christine was a relaxed bride (although she was already a wife here!), and her makeup, jewelry, and stunning gown made it feel very bridal, while also being appropriate for the outdoors. They are so in love, and it was a true joy to make the trek up this mountainside to witness their joy.

An after session is the perfect fit for a couple who has a small, intimate wedding, and wants a different backdrop for more wedding photos, or for a couple who has a limited timeline on the day-of. It's a great way to also do separate bridal photos, as well, in a special location that's different than your ceremony. It also allows you to be a bit more relaxed, because the inevitable stresses that can come with a wedding day can make it harder to focus and take in the moment. Christine is a wonderfully talented photographer at Christine Sarah Photography, and also a dear friend. I love all of her fun, creative ideas, and felt so humbled that she chose me to photograph her and Brandon on both their wedding day and this special shoot. 

Jessie and Brandon | Couples | Oregon Engagement Photographer

“The promise of marriage is more than just a moment in time. It is a promise to say yes to every day ahead. Yes to sticking it out in good times and bad, and yes to beautiful days filled with memories. It is yes to walking down an aisle and promising a lifetime, and saying yes to finding the best in the person you love. A million yesses, forever.” -Unknown

I simply can’t wait for this couple’s upcoming wedding! Jessie and Brandon were celebrating their engagement when we met up by the water’s edge at Applegate Lake for this couple’s session. Jessie was eager to show off that gorgeous new ring, and we had so much fun laughing and walking together. They were so wonderful to work with, and are adorable together. Applegate Lake is one of my favorite places to shoot; with it’s beautiful view of the mountains and the pretty water, it never disappoints. Thanks Jessie and Brandon for your sweet spirits and willingness to traipse around the lake with me! I wish you both so much love and joy in the days to come as you plan your dream day!

Andrea and Jay | Weddings | Oregon Fine Art Photographer

The day you say “I do” is one of the biggest moments in your life! For these two, Andrea and Jay, their big day was filled with all the people they loved, beautiful colors, and so much love. They were married at the incredibly beautiful Belle Fiore Winery (one of Southern Oregon’s most perfect wedding venues), where the sun shone happily on their nuptials. There were hints of gold and pinks throughout their day, contrasted perfectly by the venue’s naturally pretty greens. The beautifully styled wedding featured a gold chandelier, a hand-cut cake topper, and shimmering table runners, all styled by Terrie Day of Allure with Decor. The bride wore a gently structured gown with crisp pleats and a lovely neckline, and it was a showstopper...paired with her darling shoes and hair and makeup, she was every bit a fairytale bride! I loved all the little details, like the edible gold decorations on the cake, and the elegant filigree on the cake stand. Andrea and Jay, thank you so very much for allowing me to capture your picture-perfect day. I wish you both nothing but happiness and love for the rest of your lives!
