KAYLA + KENT | MT. PISGAH WEDDING

Time goes by so quickly. Seniors become brides. Brides become moms. Families grow. It is one of the great privileges of this job to grow with clients, and for clients to occasionally become friends. This isn’t always the case, but it’s a meaningful bond when it does, and it often lends itself to a wedding with lots of emotion on my part. Add to it a very emotionally deep couple, who are perfectly paired, equally sweet people and you get a day something like Kent and Kayla’s. That’s about all I need to do to set the stage for their wedding. You will not be able to resist her smile… don’t feel bad, no one can. 🙂

Enjoy these two kids so clearly in love.

FYI – We didn’t write “death” on the wall… but we took the opportunity to make a visual wedding pun.

SENIORS + VALENTINES DAY 2011

2011 was a good year for seniors. We had so much fun, went on so many adventures… I truly can’t thank these not-really-kids enough. They are still my photographic first-love. Hope you all enjoy these as much as I did. eugene oregon senior photographyeugene oregon senior photographyMORE AFTER THE JUMP

3 GENERATIONS + BEING RELATIONAL

A message came in from a bride of mine who is expecting her first baby, so we’re planning a maternity session.  Seniors of mine are becoming brides of mine.  One person has been in four of the weddings I’ve done recently, either as a bridesmaid or the bride.  Sisters.  Entire families.  Cousins.  Adoption celebrations.  Memorial images.  Before I break into Elton John’s “The Circle of Life” or “Can you Feel the Love Tonight” – hmmm, why the Lion King theme?

I shot Mary-Anne’s wedding.  I took her bother’s senior pictures.  I took a few 1 year anniversary shots for Mary-Anne and her husband, Connor.  We finished this 3-generation shoot, recently.  I am a quiet, private person, however; personal investment in the lives and loves of my clients is just about the best part of this job.  Not only does it show the clients’ satisfaction and willingness to hire me again (surface but important), it shows a developing trust that can extend for years (deep).  I feel like these ladies speak volumes about the strength, love, and personalities they possess… so I’ll let them do just that.  Some film, some digital.  All family.
