This is one of my absolute favorite weddings to date. Kourtney had such an incredible vision and planned this entire Gold Beach, OR wedding all the way from Texas! We had talked throughout the year about wedding plans, but everything came together even more beautifully than I could have imagined! All the handpicked florals from her aunt, the handmade arbor from her parents, and the stunning location made this wedding one to remember! 

It was important to Nick and Kourtney to get married overlooking the river where Kourtney grew up. I love that wherever you were at the wedding you could look over and see the river surrounded by mountains. Oregon’s beauty never ceases to amaze me.

This couple was such a joy to work with, and I was truly honored to witness their wedding. So many family and friends came together and everywhere you looked there were smiles. It was a true celebration of a couple that could not be more perfect for each other!

This. This is one of my all time favorite sessions. Stephanie and I started talking about doing an anniversary session over email, and I could not have been more excited. Not only did we have the most beautiful location picked out, but Stephanie sent me a photo of an incredible Leanne Marshall gown that she was planning on wearing and I just about lost it! And to top it off, it’s the exact same gown Carrie Underwood wore to host the CMA’s recently. So not only was I in love with the dress itself, but even a little starstruck by the previous owner!

I was already anticipating it being a beautiful session but it was even better than I could have imagined. Kilham Farms, tucked in the hills of Nicasio, CA was the perfect backdrop. Stephanie and Patrick arrived (and yes, she is even more stunning in person!), and we went exploring through this beautiful farm, taking gorgeous photos and petting all of the horses!

As we started shooting, I realized that I didn’t even have to do much directing! These two melted into each other so beautifully and were full of little kisses and laughs the entire session! They are the perfect match, and I was so honored to capture their love in celebration of their anniversary.

Kyle and Katie are two of the most fun-loving people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I got to meet them first at their fall engagement session, and Katie walked up in a stunning red gown and the most beautiful fall floral arrangement made by her mother. I knew immediately that they were going to be a dream to photograph, but it got so much better when I got to know them a little more. They were both full of laughs and love, and that truly made for the best engagement session. I’m always so blessed by a couple that shares my love for beautiful and romantic photos, but when they are a  joy to be around as well, it makes my job less like a job and more like a fun day with friends. Fast forward to their beautiful wedding day in Salem, OR and it was just as amazing. Katie and Kyle chose the stunning Deepwood Estates for their venue, and it is acres and acres of greens and gardens. Katie imagined a secret garden wedding, and this venue was the perfect setting. Florals arrangements made my Katie’s mom and books and beautiful details were everywhere as guests gathered to celebrate. Katie and Kyle said their vows in the most incredible garden with green archways and flowers adorning the isle. As lovely as the day was, my favorite part was seeing the big smiles on Katie and Kyle’s faces as they headed back up the isle after the ceremony. It was an absolute dream of a wedding and I was so honored to be a part of it!

Garrett and Kari live in Washington, so when we were chatting about engagement plans, we decided to meet half way at Smith Rock. I knew it was beautiful there, but words truly cannot do this place justice. I was in awe of Smith Rock with it’s towering mountains, running rivers, and beautiful greenery. Then to top it all off, Garrett and Kari are one of the most stunning couples! I had so much fun romping around Smith Rock with these two, chasing the sunset and enjoying the beauty. I love how these photographs capture their playful love and I am so excited to capture their Spokane, WA wedding this summer!

I have gone to school with Kayla since middle school and my husband went to school with Luke, so when they asked me to capture their wedding day I was beyond thrilled. It’s always an extra special honor to capture the wedding of dear friends. This day was perfect from beginning to end. Kayla was the most laid back and relaxed bride I have ever had, and it was such a joy to watch her and Luke TRULY enjoy their wedding, with no stress or worries, just pure love for each other and all of their friends and family who came to join in the celebration. It was a lovely June day, greenery everywhere, and the happiest wedding colors ever! Bright mint and coral details made everything cheerful, and then of course the biggest smiles on Luke and Kayla’s faces made everything that much better!

Often times at a wedding, I will be holding my camera up photographing and I’ll realize I have a smile a mile wide on my face as well. I just can’t help it! These days are so joyful and I am so incredibly blessed to call this my job!

Thank you Luke and Kayla for inviting me to photograph your perfect day and your perfect love!
