One of my most favorite things about being a wedding photographer is getting to be involved in the planning process time and time again. I absolutely love when a bride shoots me a note to ask about dress colors and flower choices and when to take sunset photos. While I met Scott and Katie for the first time at their Sauvie Island engagement session, Katie and I had spent so much time exchanging emails about engagement details and session locations and outfit options that I really did feel as though we'd known each other for months. These are two of the kindest, most genuine people I've had the joy of meeting and fortunately for me, this is just the start of our time working together. Katie and Scott chose an incredible spot for their engagement photos and while the island was truly stunning, it was made even more beautiful by their presence. I'm so excited to document these two special people getting married next summer at Zenith Vineyards.
Natalie is one of those gorgeous girls with a smile that's contagious. I had the honor of meeting her in Camp Sherman last month to take her senior pictures by the water. Natalie is graduating from Sisters High this year and I couldn't have been more thrilled to get to capture this exciting season in her life.
