I had some fun with flowers this past weekend & wanted to share! How stunning would this woodland style braid be at a wedding!? I love how green compliments the red rocks [& my hair in this case! haha] in Sedona.
Now that Jane in the Woods is also offering floral design for intimate events I am thrilled be able to be in nature more & work the art & design part of my brain in a different way. Cheers to being a photographer & florist!
Photographing this wedding in Portland was nothing short of breataking // the subtle grace of truly meaningful work
Here is a embarrassing story about this perfect wedding in the woods in Portland…
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]
& 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.

››› No one will ever really know what your love is like, that’s why it is so special
››› Prepare yourself, this is going to be a long one.
I am swooning/obsessed/smitten with just about every frame from this day.
These photos were taken at the Hobbit Trail on the Oregon Coast just North of Florence. It is a very stunning spot covered in moss and close to the beach. The flowers were designed and masterfully executed by Passion Flower in Eugene, I always recommend them!
Authenticity pours out of love like nothing else. That warmth & tingling makes you feel more present than ever, like the first time you heard Susan Boyle and you couldn’t help but tear up. In that moment you were super uncool & you didn’t care.
Katie & Geoff have been together 10 years. I’m sure that feeling has come up more than a few times.
Count your blessings and focus on those authentic moments of truth. And be thankful that you and your partner didn’t have to strategically & meticulously plan to study abroad in Australia at the same time just so you could be together!
This wedding took place on the beautiful property of the Mt. Pisgah Arboretum in Eugene, Oregon.
I’m so honored that this wedding just outside of Eugene ended up on the Wedding Chicks! It is always such an honor to photograph a wedding that gets featured.
››› Being a wedding photographer is always a pleasure, but photographing a friend’s wedding is a gift. Sharing a day through ›art‹ is such a special way to be a part of people’s lives, and when you already know the couple is crazy-rad it’s just a major perk!
When I shoot a wedding, all I do is pray that I am able to capture what the couple’s real love looks like, it has nothing to with me or what I want. The camera documents truth & Sarah & Josh made it beautiful. They are so in love & so together it almost felt like I was photographing a vow renewal. They were the definition of laid back on comfortable; already knew each other’s ways like they’d been studying their whole life.
This beautiful wedding happened on a private Hazelnut Orchard in Springfield, Oregon. It poured rain and everything was still awesome!
››› I was just going about my day workin’ when a full box of Eugene Wedding’s Magazine was put into my hands. Time stood still and I was completely frozen while simultaneously unable to control myself. Shaking my hands like crazy and tearing up I was honored.
Ben & Christel were a really special couple & seeing their love grace the pages of a publication was wonderful. Cheers to a full life!
// Additionally, I also had the pleasure of contributing to the magazine as a wedding style advisor. Check out that article › here

This is the account of a wedding I photographed in Eugene, Oregon. It was amazing and full of love.
››› This bride was such a treat. Between her stunning red wedding hair, walking down the aisle to Lana Del Rey [what I dream about!] or being just about the sweetest person ever, this day was joy. The wedding took place on their family farm just outside of Eugene in Cheshire, Oregon surrounded by Douglas Fir I just want to immerse myself in forever.
The gentle ease & flow of being a photographer in Oregon is such a reflection of the sweeping landscapes. Everything is so rich and the world feels so full of textures and light. Get ready for some luminous portraits in the trees.
The bride hand picked every single one of these amazing bridesmaid dresses!
This wedding happened on the family’s private farm in Cheshire, Oregon. The bride walked down the aisle to Lana Del Ray & everything was pretty much perfect.
