Rachel & Mike had a beautiful wedding at Illahe Hills Country Club in Salem, Oregon. I was so honored to be their photographer and be able to capture their day!

Rachel & Mike were both surrounded by great friends to support them on their wedding day. I loved the colors of the ladies’ dresses, especially up next to the grey suits the men wore. Oregon wedding photographer, Albany wedding photographer, Salem wedding photographer

Rachel & Mike chose to do a first look before the wedding. I’m always happy to do a first look or wait for the ceremony for them to see each other–whichever the bride and groom prefer!

During the reception we snuck away for a few photos of just Rachel & Mike. I especially loved the ones with Mike’s restored VW!
