Emma and Kevin were so much fun to photograph! Within minutes of photographing them I could tell that they had been in love for awhile. Emma and Kevin met years back on an annual family camping trip that Kevin’s family does at the Prineville Reservoir each year. Emma, who was best friends with Kevin’s cousin, would tag along. They would only see each other on this annual trip. Eventually they decided that even though the lived far from each other, they had to be together. After Kevin went with Emma to her senior prom, they officially started dating. They’ve been together for seven years and finally getting married! I love that they chose to do their engagement session on the way to that annual Father’s Day camping trip where they first met. It’s so perfect! And of course they added their puppy, Hank!
Brooke and Brandon were such troopers! We had this amazing Sparks Lake engagement session planned in May for them. We all had these perfect ideas of what to expect and were so excited to take their photos at such a beautiful place. When we arrive – it was blocked in by a ton of snow! Leaving Bend where it was 65-70 degrees, we just did not think there would be snow up at the lake. It still is amazingly beautiful at the trail head so we stepped out into the snow, with Brooke in a sundress, and captured some really fun photos in the 5 foot clearing. After that we headed back to the river trail and finished their session. This was the first engagement session I’ve done in 12 years where we captured both winter and summer photos in one session. I’m so thankful to have an amazing couple who quickly jumped on board with making the best of the situation. We had a lot of fun with them and Josh and I can’t wait to photograph their Brasada Ranch Wedding!
Yvonne and Jeremy are the sweetest couple! They are both from the same small Canadian town and have always had a great connection since the first day they met. Jeremy and Yvonne have been together for almost 5 years!
They knew they were meant for each other because they simply cannot imagine the future without one another! After 6 months of wedding planning, they are finally husband and wife! They both “feel like the luckiest people in the world to have found the loves of our lives at such a young age”. I love it!!
Jeremy, in his Calvin Klein suit from Men’s Warehouse, definitely describes himself as a modern guy. While Yvonne loves the rustic details. She put the antler centerpieces and flowers together while also making the wood sign that guests saw as they entered the ceremony. Their Modern-Rustic wedding was a perfect blend of their two styles. They chose Brasada Ranch as their venue to show off the beauty of Central Oregon while still allowing all their guests to be close to one another, staying at the same awesome location.
To Yvonne, marriage means, “Having your partner in your corner; someone who picks you up when you’re down, celebrates your achievements as their own, loves you even when they’re mad at you, and someone you couldn’t imagine life without.” Well said!
Congrats Yvonne and Jeremy!!
Michelle and Kenny are an amazing couple who are so in love! They eloped in Hawaii and had a fun wedding reception celebration at Tetherow Golf Club in Bend, Oregon. They had so many friends and family gathered around them. A long time friend of the bride flew into town from across the country to have his band perform and help Michelle and Kenny dance the night away with their guests. It was a great celebration and a night to remember!
