We met up for coffee before our shoot to talk about locations and stuff, but we ended up mostly talking about loooooove (possibly my favorite subject…). I was tickled (yes I just said tickled) to find out that these two are highschool sweethearts. They’ve been together for quite a while now (Jim just finished his Masters, and Cristy’s finishing her PhD) and decided it was about time to plan the official celebration. Except these two are laid back lovebirds, they just took the first step by taking their engagement pictures :) I love it. We took kind of a walking tour around Corvallis since they love the outdoors and were both stuck in offices all day. We had tons of fun and lots of laughter, and they weather was puuuurfect. What more could we ask for?

Every once in a while, not very often mind you, I get to actually go to a wedding as a guest. It is SUCH a treat for me. I love weddings sooo much, mainly because I love to celebrate love. A couple of weeks ago while I was up in Oregon (shooting weddings), I got the treat of celebrating our friends (Jesse and Jenessa) tie the knot. Casey flew in from LA a couple days before, I picked him up at the airport, he played a show with Jesse in Portland (2 days before his wedding, amazing) and we headed down to the party. And party it was! It was such an awesome night of dancing and laughing and toasting to a beautiful life together. I was really blown away at how Jesse and Jenessa perfectly personalized the evening. From the whimsical flowers and hand build structures, to the live band stage where they’re friends band’s took turns playing all night long. It was truly a magical evening…. I want to go back ;)

Anyway, I just wanted to share some of the awesome details they put together to make the evening theirs…. cause did I mention I just loooved them? enjoy!







Soo, by the time this posts (yes, I thought ahead yesterday and scheduled it!) I will be driving hard north on I5 with 2 crazy guys, on our way up to Oregon. We’ll probably be listening to a book on tape or some good ole’ classic rock and pretty close to crossing over the Oregon border. So when this pops up, feel free to do a little dance for us to root us on.. Hip Hip Hooray! Go Road Trips!

About the blog I mean! With all the crazy traveling and taking care of my amazing clients, I have been neglecting to keep you guys up to date on all the fun things I’m doing and shooting! Well fret no more, I’ve got plenty in store for you all over the next few weeks! I’m also heading up to Oregon again in 2 days for some more killer weddings, so bear with me while I’m on the road.
While in Oregon I also get to meet my new 1 week old nephew for the first time, I’m so excited!! I got the wonderful opportunity to shoot my brother and sister-in-law’s family/maternity portraits while I was there last time so I’ll share those soon with little Max’s newborn photos too. Like I said, I have much in store for you all… ;)

In the mean time, here is a sneak preview from Marissa and KC’s wedding at the Lake of the Woods, outside of Klamath Falls
