How we met
Not only are these two super special to me, I was honored to be present in what felt like a real-life woodsy fairytale wedding! Sam and Maggie are one of the sweetest couples I know. We met through their first photo session with me about 3 years ago. I shot their maternity session for them and Maggie was just about the cutest pregnant mom-to-be ever! Since then I have shot several photo sessions for them and we became great friends as I got to watch their little family grow. So you can imagine how excited I was when they asked me to photograph their wedding day!
Their special day
This venue was incredible and not to mention brand new! Sam and Maggie were the first to break in this new dreamy setting tucked away in the woods. That’s actually what it’s called – The Woods at Crooked Finger located in Scotts Mills, Oregon. There were moments that I felt like we stepped right into the Twilight movies and it was amazing! Twinkle lights in the trees and everything!
I honestly couldn’t pin point my favorite part of the day. From riding around the grounds on the golf cart to sneak away for photos to watching them love on Sam’s sweet grandmother. Or perhaps the tender moment during the ceremony when they got to bring up their son, Noah, to be prayed over. Or just being in awe of the stunning fall themed wildflower centerpieces that matched the uniquely beautiful bridesmaids dresses.
This wedding was one for the books. Congratulations Sam + Maggie! I just love you guys!
