Tag Archives: EUGENE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Occasionally I would have a senior who talked more about me photographing their wedding day than the session we were currently shooting. I photograph weddings, seniors look at wedding photography, it makes sense. Often it doesn’t happen that way, though. Life moves on, people move states, they meet new photographers and create a bond with them. No harm, no foul. However, when I get the chance to watch these senior girls turn into dynamic women, and be involved in their lives… it’s an immense honor. I count it a double honor-blessing-joy to be present for their wedding, which has apparently been in the works since they were 16. 🙂 From the Bieber poses (mixtape dropping soon) to the laughter during the engagement session, I felt a sense of relief at what an amazing man Eryn chose to be her partner in life. They both chose well.
Having photographed two of the sisters’ weddings now, I feel like I have a good grasp of how special the family is, and how lucky Eryn and Michael are to have each other. I see so much on their faces every time they look at each other. What a joyful couple. What an emotional day. From senior, to engaged, to bride… Eryn’s wedding couldn’t be any more special to me.
I’ve known these two since they were just kids and always hoped they found someone amazing, who would appreciate how much they bring to the table… then they ended up together. Life is funny that way. There’s no question this is one of the cutest weddings I have ever photographed. So many cute moments, cute people, cute looks, cute stories. That used to be a word I had a good amount of disdain for, especially in regards to my work. After having my own children, I see the value in cute things in a way that is still surprising, like when I describe my work as cute.
No apologies for how cute this post is. Alli and Jacob are a great reminder of being young, and in love. Enjoy.

Shared joy is one of my favorite aspects of the wedding day. Bride and groom, family members, friends, father daughter dances… sometimes I just sit back and smile throughout the wedding day. Anna and Noah’s wedding is one of the most joy-filled events I’ve seen in my time behind the camera. I’m not one to exaggerate with the “awesome-sauce, amazeballs, in love with love” BS that is rampant in the wedding world. It just so happens to be the honest truth that I walked away with a sense of appreciation for what was about the happiest wedding I’ve ever been a part of. I like to write about what I see, what is memorable, and what is real. Anna and Noah are real, joyful, and in love.
Enjoy this sweet couple who needs no embellishment or exaggeration.
