KRISTIN + JAMIE | MT. ANGEL WEDDING

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Kristin and Jamie, but how could I not? Cows, shooting with strobes waist-deep in waterfalls, fly-fishing, abandoned fire-damaged buildings, ropeswings, pie… you know what they say about variety. Plus, when the groom MAKES the boutonnieres and bouquet, you know it’s going to be good. Now to find a way to take that swing with me to each wedding 😉

I find it so refreshing to be around people at this stage in life. It’s not about age, because some get married at 21 and some get married at 31. The new beginning is refreshing. I remember getting married (almost 14 years ago) and thinking about all that would change and grow over the many years together. Houses, cars, kids, jobs, favorite restaurants, best vacations, and more that I had absolutely no idea would come our way. I thought about those things fondly, and even now, still in my thirties, I see a lot on the horizon for me and my family. I like to be with engaged couples. I like to share in their excitement and reminisce in my own head about everything they must be excited for. Life is fascinating.

Thanks to Brittany Sharday for shooting with me.

MARY + LAWRENCE | OREGON GARDENS WEDDING

A little bit country, a little bit rock n roll. That’s what the song says. After spending a good deal of time with Mary and Lawrence, I think it’s an appropriate description for these two, but not in a cheesy Osmonds kind of way. No, in a down-home, unbelievable connection to each other, I’m gonna love you forever and ever, amen kind of way.

There are so many moments throughout this wedding that I’ll carry with me. Some of the images might not mean as much to those of you who weren’t there, so I will point a few out. The mom scrubbing a stain out of a bridesmaid dress before the day started, demonstrating the sacrificial servanthood mothers show on a daily basis. The lost loved one, memorialized in a locket on her bouquet. The reassurance and steady presence of dad, when the pressure of the day becomes a reality. The church, celebrating 100 years. So many moments remembered… that’s the holy grail when I go through my weddings. If I remember them, I know they will, too, even as they share with their future grand kids. Forever and ever, amen.
