Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Brooke + Josh: A Rainy Day Engagement Session at Willamette Mission Park

May 3, 2022

It’s bound to rain on our parade once in a while here in Oregon. We have gorgeous backgrounds here and lots and lots of green. But that does come at a cost. Rain. All. The. Time. But Brooke and Josh didn’t let a little rain ruin their joy-filled engagement session at Willamette Mission Park! I absolutely love when my couples are laid back, trusting, and go with the flow! These two were adventurous and down for anything!

A Rainy Session

We arrived at Willamette Mission Park and it had already started to drizzle. We kept a close eye on the hour by hour weather watch to see if it would lighten up. It said it was supposed to. So we started anyway with a few drops coming down. No big deal! But no more than 15 minutes into our session it really started coming down! I gave them the option to stop at any time and we could always pick it back up another day. But they were willing to just go with it. We had so much fun we hardly even noticed it!

These two were absolutely adorable together! Brooke’s smile is seriously contagious. I couldn’t help but smile when I saw how Josh made her laugh and the way they looked at each other. Everything about this engagement session at Willamette Mission Park was simply perfect! They were so playful together and so natural! I couldn’t even believe it when they told me they were NERVOUS at the beginning. It doesn’t matter at all if you’ve never stepped in front of a camera before. I will be right there to help ease you in and we will have so much fun! I can’t wait for their wedding day!!
