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?!

Hannah + Parker: A Spring Wedding at Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum

May 27, 2023

This day was nothing short of AMAZING and UNIQUE! It was my first time capturing a wedding at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. Let me just say, it did not disappoint! Classic and historical planes, gorgeous grounds, a stunning bride and groom = perfection. Hannah and Parker are SO much fun and they were the perfect couple to kick off this wedding season with!

A Perfect Backdrop

Hannah and Parker have something so incredibly special between them. You can literally feel it when they are together. The way they look at each other, laugh with each other. You just know they are meant to spend the rest of their lives together. I also absolutely loved how they included their sweet fur baby, Allie! She is the sweetest pup and got to walk down the aisle! I loved meeting her during their engagement session at Smith Rock State Park and I just love how much they love her. They make such a sweet little family!

Not only did we have a killer backdrop for portraits with the airplanes inside the museum, this venue offers a beautiful oak grove. We were also blessed with an EPIC sunset! After a dress change we had to get some sunset portraits and include both of their dads’ classic cars! I always encourage my couples to include even just a few minutes for some extra portraits around sunset. Even if we don’t get a killer sunset like this with bold, bright colors, the light is soft and gorgeous and totally worth it!

My Favorite Parts!

This day and these two will hold a special place in my heart. I felt so blessed to be part of this incredible day. I couldn’t pick a favorite moment. The harp at the ceremony. Allie wearing a flower piece that Hannah wore as a child. The first look with Hannah and her dad. Hannah and Parker against the backdrop of the AIRPLANES at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum! Watching them with their incredible love and support of their friends and family. It was all amazing! I wish these two a beautiful life together filled with so many more adventures!
