Klamath Falls, OR ~ Enchanting Autumn Engagement {10.06.2013}

Engagement sessions are not just about producing images for the newly wed couple.  This is a chance for me to get to know them.  Sometimes people just happen to cross paths at just the right time and amazing things happen.  That is how Justin and Eden’s story began and I cannot wait to capture the next chapter!

Fort Klamath Aspen Inn ~ Plascencia Wedding {10.5.13}


I love October (my birthday and anniversary are in October)…I love the colors of fall, the cool of the evening and the gorgeous weddings that sprout from these perfect conditions!

Alex and Jessica had a beautifully planned wedding at the Aspen Inn that created a perfect backdrop to a relaxed country wedding ceremony and reception.  The soft  sounds of a river trickling could be faintly heard by all their friends and family as the couple exchanged their vows outside.  Congratulations to Alex and Jessica!  (and lil’ Alex too!)

Klamath Falls, OR ~ Schroeder Wedding {07.06.13}


It was a sunny blue sky day when Jason and Kendra said their vows on the Running Y golf course.  I got to know these two over the last year and was overwhelmed with happiness for the new husband and wife.  We snuck off for a brief bridal session before proceeding to the reception at the Trappers Inn at the Kingsley Feild Airforce Base.  Congratulations Jason & Kendra!  What a beautiful wedding day!

Woodburn, OR Maternity Session ~ Tina & Kyle {4.28.13}

I am going through a particularly busy time of photographing babies and bumps right now.  So what is so special about this one?  Besides mama being my little sister, this is the only baby {boy} on my work order!  I was so excited to learn the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival was happening during my trip for this shoot.  We definitely had to make a stop there!  This was my first time ever to see all the fantastic tulips.  It could not have been a better experience than this.  Tina is a gorgeous mama who compliments the tulips nicely, don’t you think?

Congratulations Kyle & Tina (aka dad & mom)!

A mother’s joy begins when new life is stirring inside,

when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time,

and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone.

Wilsonville, OR ~ Flowers by Nancy Joslin {2013}

When asked how she started her business, Nancy says, “A family friend asked if I would do her wedding flowers. I had worked with drieds and silks, but never fresh. I have always had a creative eye and passion for flowers and thought, well how hard can it be? After spending many hours perfecting the designs and everything turning out just how the bride wanted, I was hooked and knew I needed to pursue my passion of bringing life to every occasion with flowers”. Seventeen years later, Flowers by Nancy Joslin is providing flowers and event planning for Oregon, Washington and destination weddings. Her favorite part is being creative and helping people make their special day a reality within their budget. Nancy also includes a complimentary toss bouquet in every wedding package.
