What an amazing privilege it was to photograph Seth & Ashley’s wedding at Harvest Baptist Church in Albany, Oregon!

Ashely contacted me last winter about their wedding. Seth & Ashley grew up together and had been friends for a long time before eventually going on to further their relationship and then get married. What a great foundation to start a marriage on!

It was a beautiful July day – it wasn’t too hot but there was plenty of sunshine! I loved the sunflowers and rustic touches in Seth & Ashley’s decor!

Seth and Ashley chose not to do a first look, but instead to see each other for the first time as Ashley walked down the aisle. We did separate wedding party and family photos before the ceremony, and I also was able to capture a sweet moment between the two of them without them seeing each other!

The ceremony was very lovely, with both their pastor from Albany as well as their pastor from Oklahoma having a role in the ceremony. For their untiy ceremony, Seth & Ashley chose to use sand as a friend sang a beautiful song.

After the ceremony, we completed wedding party & family photos, and then it was on to the reception. Seth & Ashley left the reception amid their friends and family blowing bubbles. 2017-09-23_0001.jpg


After the reception, we met at Takena Landing in Albany to take some photos of just the new husband and wife! It was so nice to have a little while to capture some beautiful portraits for them!
