Tim & Marisa’s O&L Gardens Wedding | Albany Oregon Photographer

Tim & Marisa’s Wedding was on a beautiful September Saturday at O&L Gardens between Albany and Lebanon, Oregon. O&L Gardens is a beautiful location, and Marisa, Tim, and their family and friends had it decorated beautifully! I loved crossing the little foot bridge and seeing such great details!

There is a nice room for the bride and bridal party to get ready in, which is where I was able to capture a few more detail shots of things like Marisa’s dress and jewelry.

Pacific City Wedding | Oregon Wedding Photographer

This is the second wedding we’ve had the privilege of capturing in Pacific City! Such a beautiful place!! The reception was at the Kiwanda Community Center, and in the 11 months between weddings we photographed there, they added on quite a bit to the center!

Even though it was August, it wasn’t a super beautiful day. But it was mostly dry so that’s always a plus for the Oregon
Coast!

Enjoy these photos from Nicole and James’ wedding! And if you’re looking for an Oregon wedding photographer, please contact me!

Heather & Chris – Benham Falls Wedding | Bend Oregon Wedding Photographer

I LOVE Bend, Oregon, and anytime I get to take the trek over the mountains with my photography, I jump at the chance! In August I had the opportunity to photograph Heather and Chris’s sweet wedding at Benham Falls.

What a gorgeous location for a wedding! The falls were beautiful and it was such a lovely August day.

When I arrived, Heather and her sister were at the top of the trail, while Chris and the rest of the family were down a little ways at a lookout point where the wedding would be held.

It was so sweet because Chris and Heather’s littlest one had fallen asleep and he only wanted his mom or dad to hold him. I loved how they held him throughout the ceremony as they joined their family together.

Rachel & Mike | Illahe Hills Country Club | Oregon Wedding Photographer

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!
