Elopement Photographer

Ashley + Ben - Meadow Elopement

 

We met Ashley and Ben last winter after we did a giveaway for a couples session. Five minutes into meeting them in the dead of winter at their shoot, I knew we’d be great friends! Ashley has the sweetest disposition, always smiling and laughing. And Ben gives her all the reasons to do so. He’s hilarious and so upbeat. When Ashley emailed me saying they’d decided to elope on a Wednesday evening in a field of wildflowers…I couldn’t respond fast enough. We’d already planned to be their photographers back before they were even engaged, ha!
I cannot say enough about the love these two share, it’s evident even to a mere acquaintance and even more, it’s inspiring. The officiant said it best before walking into the field with them. He told them they were doing the single most brave and romantic thing they could do to confirm their marriage by vowing it intimately in their own way, perfect for them! We couldn’t agree more!
So happy for these two!

 

Wildflower Vow Renewal

Lisa & Chad wanted a way to reconfirm their love after 10 years of marriage. They wanted something intimate and romantic and special. And with that spark this wildflower field elopement vow renewal was born!
We met them at sunset in a big field of fall wildflowers and the rest was seriously magical. They quietly spoke their vows through giggles and tears and then tucked the notes away in a keepsake box with some mementos from their decade together. Just before the golden sun sunk down behind the hills we met up with their two adorable boys for a family cuddle.

Becca + Vic | Oregon Coast Adventure Session

The Oregon Coast is majestic. It's rough and dark and scary. It's serene and massive...and all at the same time the most beautiful place I've ever seen. Becca + Vic just moved to the Manzanita area and it just so happened that we were in the neighborhood. You may recognize these two from their wedding earlier this year. 

We loved that just a few weeks after they settled in we were able to document a piece of their hearts here in Oregon, on their latest adventure! We hiked, stood on cliffs and in the cold salt water. They showed us a secret trail to a cliff edge hundreds of feet above the most emerald water and crashing waves. It was unforgettable. If you can stand at the edge of the earth and be insignificant and everything all at once then you'll be as changed by Oregon as we all have been.
