Daniel + Michelle :: Oregon Outdoor Wedding

Daniel and Michelle had one of those magical days that made me feel so lucky to have the job that I do. Getting to capture people in love, surrounded by those they love the most while celebrating life together, is a beautiful thing and something I feel truly fortunate to get to do. This summer Mr. + Mrs. Unverferth married in a great big field under a big blue sky, and I couldn't have been any more thrilled to get to document their day.

It's important to note that this wasn't just any field in the country. It was the same special spot where Daniel + Michelle had their first date, and later their first kiss, so many years ago. It was only fitting that these two marry in this field, where they could share their first kiss as husband and wife in front of the family and friends who helped to weave their story together.

Scott + Katie :: Sauvie Island Engagement Session

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 already 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.
