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?!

Janet + Anthony: An October Wedding at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe

October 6, 2022

This early fall wedding at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe was an incredible way to end this wedding season! It had everything you could want in a dream wedding and then some! The Foundry at Oswego Pointe provided the most breathtaking backdrop for Anthony and Janet to share their vows in front of their friends and family. They had their ceremony right on over the water of the Willamette River. I don’t know what took my breath away more, this stunning couple, the view, or all their incredible details!!

Anthony and Janet found me over a year ago and I knew right away that we clicked. These two are so sweet and we became instant friends. We had so much fun at their engagement session last fall at not one, but two gorgeous Pacific Northwest locations. I was also super blessed to have a chance to photograph them again when they booked one of my Spring mini sessions earlier this year. The big day couldn’t come soon enough! I knew it was going to be one to remember.

Amazing Moments

Each time I thought the most amazing moment just happened during their day, another shortly followed! There were so many special moments, it’s so hard to choose a favorite! The tears FLOWED between them during their first look and as they shared private vows. I was DYING when I realized that coming down the aisle was not one, but THREE flower men! Equipped with a fanny pack of petals and a killer beat, they had everyone smiling and laughing! But one of the top moments of the day was watching a sparkler machine go off during their first dance! It was AWESOME! If you haven’t heard of these before or you’re looking for something to add some spark to your reception, consider adding a sparkler machine! THE. BEST. FIRST. DANCE! I loved capturing this stunning day for these two sweet people at The Foundry. I wish them a lifetime of love, fun, adventures, and joy!
