Lindsay & David's Southern Oregon Wedding

David and Lindsay had a beautiful perfect fall wedding day at Del Rio Vineyards.  It was the perfect sunny Southern Oregon day and was full of so many great moments.  They included their sweet pup Josie as part of their day she was even there for their first look.  I have the blessing to not only call these two clients but also really good friends.  I'm so happy for them and was honored to document the day along with them.  I loved Lindsay's idea for a travel themed wedding as they both have a passion for travel and have been on many fun trips around the globe together.  Penny and Lulu always have amazing floral designs and Lindsay's bridal bouquet was to die for!  So excited to see what these two have in store for the future and their next big trip!

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!
