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 September Wedding at St Mary’s and Flinn Block Hall

October 3, 2022

September is such a GORGEOUS time for a wedding in Oregon! And this incredible day had so many locations and beautiful backdrops, ending at Flinn Block Hall in downtown Albany. When I think back over this day all I can think of is pure elegance, soft pinks, and Brooke’s contagious smiles and laughter. She has the BEST smile! There was so much joy that surrounded these two and I was so honored to just be there to witness it!

Multiple Locations!

We started this day with Brooke in downtown Corvallis, during game day for the Beavers, while Josh was getting ready with his guys in Albany. I was so thrilled to capture portraits of Brooke in her gown. I was able to be there with her during her last dress fitting so I got to see how stunning it was! Brooke was giving off all the modern day princess vibes with long lace sleeves and an array of sparkle! Then we jumped in the cars to get her to the church. But not before a couple of emotion-filled first looks with her girls and her dad.

St Mary’s Church

Brooke and Josh opted to not have a first look. Rather, they wanted a special moment together before their ceremony with a first touch. I’m not going to lie. I teared up behind my camera as I witnessed these two hold hands around a corner while Josh prayed over them and their future. So many emotions flowed from them both. It was truly one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever witnessed! After their gorgeous Catholic ceremony at their church and the very place they met, their friends and family cheered them on as they exited the doors to an awesome bubble exit! If you’re ever doubting having an exit at the end of your wedding, consider opting for a killer ceremony exit instead! Flower petals or bubbles, it’s always fun!!

Flinn Block Hall

The day ended at their reception at Flinn Block Hall in Albany. I absolutely LOVED my portrait time with them a couple blocks away at the City Hall building and surrounding gardens! I feel like I’ve made amazing friends of these two super sweet people. People who love each other and their family and friends so much. People who put God at the center of everything they do. They are so special and their day was absolutely PERFECT!
