Bridal Portraits at Tlaquepaque // Sedona Wedding Photographer by Melissa Jane Ferrell


We were so fortunate to have some extra time for bridal photos at this beautiful Sedona Wedding at Los Abrigados. 

The excellent & dreamy melt-in-your-mouth golden light at a wedding HAPPENS SO FASt

One of the most important parts of my job is to get that light in a stellar shot in about one moment's notice.  

I blogged the rest of the wedding earlier this week but there were just too many extra good ones not to share! I love Rachel's wedding look so much!

Sedona Wedding at Los Abrigados // Rachel & Andrew by Melissa Jane Ferrell


If you are getting married in Sedona, Los Abrigados is one of the most lush & woodsy venues! I adored being a wedding photographer here, highly recommended. 

Andrew & Rachel #10yrsinthemaking

Getting married is special. Really special. 

You are now embarking into the world with a friend. Someone who will be by your side or who will be the first & most interested to hear the story of your time apart. They will listen with love & love to listen. 

These two are great. Really great. [You can read all about their particular kind of greatness ›here‹ in their engagement shoot post.] 

Not much more to say other than I sincerely loved this day & I am touched to have been able to be a part of it. Enjoy it all xoxoxo

Local Juicery Wedding Cleanses // Catch the Glow! by Melissa Jane Ferrell


››› BIG exciting NEWs

My favorite little juice shop in Sedona [See & read all about Local Juicery ›here‹] is offering amazing juice cleanses [plus a big discount!] for brides [&grooms]! When I got married Reilly & I were extra extra dedicated to looking and feeling our best everyday & I wish this was around, we totally would have done it! 

I absolutely love to have this juice everyday & could not recommend it more! Today I myself went to Local not once but twice & had the Watermelon Crush juice [full of fresh mint!], a Basic [nuts & cinnamon and things] & a raw Kale Caesar + half of Reilly's freaking out of this world raw cheesecake. Killer day!

I will add in retrospect that after our wedding not only were we SUPER impressed with how rockinly glowing we looked in our wedding photos but being at our pinnacle of health helped us enjoy our honeymoon that much more. We took a three week road trip through the entire Pacific Northwest & up into Canada & we felt SO amazing the entire time.

BIO: Summer opened Local to help move people toward a plant-based diet in the most delicious way possible! Working in San Fransisco as a makeup artist and studying music business took a tole on Summer health. Late nights, cocktail parties and music events packed on the pounds and monopolized her time. Finally she realized her body and soul needed a shift, needed some true connection. Summer started her journey to optimal health. By shifting to a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and juice, summer felt alive again. This prompted her to start education and teaching the art of raw food and plant-centric eating. Summer is a mama to Henry, a business owner, blogger, author and a students of life.

Local Juicery // Sedona, Arizona by Melissa Jane Ferrell


›› I had such an incredible time working with Summer on some imagery for her new Juice shop, Local!

If you are here in Sedona you simply must pay Local Juicery a visit. You will See & feel the radiance for the rest of the day!

Summer is a total #Girlboss in the best kind of way. Her juices and smoothies are THE best [seriously]. It makes the biggest difference when the person preparing your food is not only an expert but also an enthusiastic chef at heart. [& she is the most kindhearted girl & I am so happy she opened up shop!]

During it all, I was so so lucky to be able to taste everything we were shooting and I'm officially hooked! This will defintiely be a regular part of my life. Reilly & I even bought a little juicer for our house when we can't make it out. I already feel so much more hydrated and cleansed. That awesome pure health feeling that shines & shines.

A Portland Wedding on the Unger Farm // Ben & Christel Say I Do by Melissa Jane Ferrell


››› This is quite possibly the most overdue post of all time. This wedding was from 2013. Yes you read that correctly, 2013. 

When I wasn't such a regular blogger I let so many wedding days slip through the cracks without ever seeing the light of the world [except when being shipped off to their rightful owners] but I really want to share them because they were so spectacular! Starting with this one.

These two landed the coveted cover feature for Eugene Weddings Magazine  

[more about that here]

& I cannot wait to share their one of a kind wedding.

I really could never find the words to thank these two enough for being such spitballs of fire and lighting up the day with their joy. I remember every moment of our interaction so well. I remember Christel's first inquiry where she described the most spunky and amazing sounding wedding I'd ever heard of. I remember standing on Mississippi St. when all the Magnolias were in bloom and receiving a call from Ben that they wanted to sit down & chat. I remember meeting them for coffee and being completely floored by how full of pizzaz they where. We did the engagement photos at the Portland farmer's market and I thought Christel was one of the coolest gals I'd ever met. 

Shooting their wedding was truly an honor.
