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.

Marcin & Olivia // Lost Dutchman Engagement Photos by Melissa Jane Ferrell


I have so much fun at work...

 ›I literally cannot believe I'm working‹

 

 On the day of this shoot, it was 106 in Phoenix & it was SO hot we had to break [for an hour] to get water from a spigot [Olivia drank an impressive full 32 ounces & Marcin promptly high-fived her for being such a rockstar] to regain ourselves. 

Marcin and Olivia were so amazing, I wish I could take photos of these two everyday. We had THE best afternoon with their amazingness, my cameras, my tiny babe & the stunning desert. I wanted to die - the cacti were so mind boggling, some of them are easily over 200 years old [rad!] . 

Could not be any more excited about our move to the desert [or these photos!!!] or the moon that night! Scroll down to check out the epic moon shot - very worth it. Many, many thanks to these wonderful people for making this day so spectacular! xoxo

A Little Story by Melissa Jane Ferrell


When I first sat down in photography 101 as a dedicated nutrition student looking for an easy elective, I filled out the intake questionnaire as such:

What is you favorite thing to photograph? Trees

What is your least favorite thing to photograph? People. People ruin photos  

image.jpg

What a silly thought. [I remember my teacher laughed] When I think back to that moment I remember what I was referring to, I hated when random tourists interrupted my perfectly composed vacation shot. [I was very seriously creating important art #imverybusy]

Traveling is where I first discovered my love for photography. I was in Iceland & the sun was out 24 hours a day & the entire country was literally our playground & I found that I was preferring to stay inside and obsessively cull, edit & post glorious moss covered landscapes than anything else. I should have taken that as a clue to what I would be doing every day for the rest of my life... & now here I am doing it all over the best land in the world! 

So back to portraits. Now that I can masterfully avoid background distractions [tourists] & can get rid of anything I want in Photoshop, an environmental portrait is in my option the best kind of memory. Just you simply blended with your land & location. Whether it's on the most important day of your life or not, it's significant. Very significant. What memories are you leaving behind for the next generations? Are they ever going to see how amazing your youth was in a photo album? Or will it all be lost when your hard drive crashes. 

People [YOU] are the MOST important part of a photo & my favorite thing to shoot.

A Sedona Wedding in Black & White by Melissa Jane Ferrell


››› Lately I have been all about black & white.

That's why I'm choosing to share today's Sedona wedding with you in that way.

It takes me all the way back to the darkroom [second home] in college. Obsessing and painstakingly redoing all my film prints over and over and over again. I would just loose a whole day in there. No sound except the click of your timer and the quiet flow of the water bathes & hardly any light. Just the photograph. Looking back it was so nice to be able to spend that quite & contemplative time alone with my work. I would never trade it for the vibrant excitement that my work creates now but being still for a night at my desk in Lightroom with black & white images has  really helped me feel balanced in art again. 

So enjoy this story! I always feel like I have to choose one, either black & white OR color and I can never decided who you'll probably end up seeing the whole day in color as well!

Yana & Vadim // Portland Wedding Photographer by Melissa Jane Ferrell


Here is a embarrassing story about this perfect wedding in the woods in Portland...

››› The first chance I got I had to call my mom in a  panic because everyone and everything was so beautiful & perfect

I was about 7 months preggo [here is a day-of visual for you I quickly shot while running up and down three flights of stairs to get all of what was happening]

melissa jane ferrell

& to be honest I was having one of those OMG all my dreams are coming true kind of moments. Scary. But AWESOME.  I will never be able to put into words how thankful I was to arrive to this group of the loveliest people. Feeling like a cement brick & jello at the same time all while my heart was leaping out of my frozen self towards my truest desire.  

Cheers to Vadim & Yana! I wish them so much happiness.

Scottsdale Wedding Photographer // Lost Dutchman Engagement Photos by Melissa Jane Ferrell


This is exactly what I dreamed of when moving to Arizona to become a wedding photographer. The saguaros are like the woods of the Souhwest. These two flew all the way down from Calgary to have their engagement photos taken at Loat Dutchman State Park. They were amazingly fun people and I cannot wait for their wedding in Scottsdale this Fall! Here are just two frames, will share the rest very soon! Check back next week!
