Holy Rosary Church Wedding: Kristian & Noelle

This beautiful, humble and incredibly kind couple was a wonderful way to finish off 2018. I was so honored to be present, to witness the tremendous amount of support Kristian and Noelle received. Family and close friends from all over the globe gathered to lavish the newlyweds with affection and generosity, a mark of how dearly they are loved.

I can speak with confidence that these two will stand the test of time and 50 years from now be one of the couples married longest on the dance floor. For now, many congratulations and thank you for the privilege of being a part of your wedding day memories.

Zenith Vineyard Wedding: Kelli + Logan

Zenith Vineyard is nestled in rolling wine country just outside Salem, and was the green oasis where Kelli and Logan celebrated their wedding vows surrounded by family and friends. Kelli and Logan were remarkably easy going, and game for anything as we explored the grounds during their golden hour photos. It was clear they simply enjoyed the presence of the other, and were soaking in every minute of this incredibly beautiful day.

Kelly and Logan, I was particularly impressed by your others-focused attitude during your wedding. I remember over drinks Kelli described her desire that her wedding would be a day where her guests were able to really enjoy themselves. When mom had her unexpected hospital visit, both of you focused on her needs verses your own and honoring Cody as ring bearer definitely made my day ;) Thank you for the privilege of capturing your wedding- we were so delighted to have a "front-row" seat as your 8-18-18 day unfolded! 

These are just a smattering of images from your wedding- enjoy! 



Many thanks to Melissa Babasin for second shooting, at 8 months preggo I couldn't have done this without you! Who would have guessed baby would be here less than a week later! You were an absolute rockstar :D

Langdon Farms Wedding: Derek + Erika

It was a perfect day to get married at Langdon farms, not a cloud in the sky and that's saying something for June in the Northwest ;) It was just the perfect day. Derek and Erika are some of the most other-focused people you could meet. They genuinely seek to care for and serve those around them, and none more so than Derek for his bride. From the first moments I spoke with him on the phone I knew he was a servant-leader as evidenced by the fact that he shouldered much of the wedding planning prior. The way they compliment each other, I am confident they will have a marriage that will only grow more beautiful with time.
