Callie and James | Weddings | Oregon Fine Art Photography

People often ask me about photographing friends and family...I admit, it is a bit nerve-wracking when the subjects are close friends (as this bride and groom are), but I mostly feel honored they would entrust such an important task to me. A wedding is an irreplaceable day, filled with the people you love, celebrating one of the biggest moments in your life! It’s no small thing that I get to document these beautiful days, and I feel so lucky every single time! Callie and James are dear friends who celebrated their wedding at the stunning Orchard Home Bed and Breakfast. This beautiful venue is so charming, and I loved what Callie said about her color and dress choices, "I wanted my bridesmaids to be able to pick their own dresses, and the groomsmen, their own suits, so I went with a palette of blushes, grays, and beiges. I wanted the flowers to be loose and textured, so we included things like olive leaf, Dusty Miller, and fresh lavender.” Florist Jeanie Payne perfectly caught her vision for a mix of delicate and rustic, and the bouquets were unique and lovely. This wedding was not only gorgeous and full of so much fun (the groom surprised the bride by serenading her to "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith), it was also meaningful to be alongside such treasured friends on their big day. Congratulations, Callie and James, on your incredible day!
