I had the honor of photographing Marie and Luke’s beautiful wedding at Brasada Ranch earlier this summer. Lucky for me, my partner-in-crime was my friend (& amazing photographer) Rachael de Azevedo! I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful, easy-going, fun bride and groom/wedding party and guests. We had the best time at a beautiful location, with a stunning couple and crazy/amazing light.. with all of that, you are going to get two hefty blog posts because I had such a hard time choosing what to share… so I thought, forget it! You are going to get a lot :) Here is part 1!

I had the honor of photographing this wonderful new families commitment ceremony at their beautiful home (when it was +100 out)! It was the most personal, heart-felt ceremony that I had been to. Just the family of 6 on their deck, saying family vows of commitment and love. Perfect.

I was SO excited to hear that the Bristow’s were having their first baby! I met them when they were dating, they became my children’s babysitters (the best), photographed their engagement, did their ‘after wedding’ photos and now maternity! Next up, a newborn session and I can’t wait to meet their baby. She will be just as sweet as the two of them are!

I was so excited with the William’s family asked if I could do their session in Black Butte! One because it is soooo beautiful there. Two, I was going to be there on vacation/working for two weeks. Three, because it’s a special place for their family to go to. We had a great time in the meadow minus the wind and mosquitos(which like me a bit too much). After our session, had to get ice cream at the General Store of course!

I had a great time photographing this beautiful mother and her twins (plus older daughters that came to help) in Bend last week before they head up to Alaska to join their dad. The weather was perfect, plenty of room to run around and two little cuties that kept us on the go!
