Stephanie and Brent are seriously the cutest couple! Even when they had to cancel their long planned 2020 trip to Paris for their 20th anniversary, they still managed to plan an awesome trip to the Sunriver Resort. They even had great attitudes about it! I could tell they were soaking up the love and time away. I mean look at how they look at each other! 20 years into a marriage and they are still happy!
Brent had visited Paris in high school and has been planning on taking Stephanie there for a romantic vacation ever since they met (I think-at least for a very long time). We totally related on this! Paris is one of my favorite places on earth. I also went in high school and have been trying to take Josh there ever since we met. The world has flipped travel upside down and I find it refreshing to see people change what they are doing and find joy in the new plans.
With the 20th anniversary gift of Emeralds in mind, Stephanie chose an Emerald outfit for her and tie for Brent to capture that spirit. The color looks great on them which is awesome! I’m not sure I could pull of the look like Stephanie has.
My favorite thing about photographing Stephanie and Brent was watching them make each other laugh. If that is the secret to a healthy and strong marriage then count me in. I love when Josh makes me laugh and I hope we keep laughing, smiling and loving each other like these two.
Stephanie mentioned that it seems like time has gone by so quickly. It’s easy to see how that could be. They look like they always have a ton of fun together and when you are having fun, time flies.
Stephanie and Brent,
Spending a short time with you has made me hopeful and has put a smile on face. You two are so in love and it’s easy to see. I can only hope that I have as much happiness as you have when we reach 20 years. And I hope Josh still looks at me the way Brent looks at you, Stephanie. I truly hope your anniversary was amazing! And I hope I get to be there in Paris photographing you on your make-up trip 🙂 Thank you again for letting me be part of your story and letting me capture these beautiful photos of you two! Lastly, thanks for putting up with the cold wind!

Lindsey and Tyler said their vows on Sunday at the Sunriver Great Hall with their closest friends and family from all over Northern America. Sunriver has been a special place for Lindsey for a long time. She grew up wth her family spending vacations in Sunriver. Knowing how much this location means to Lindsey, when Tyler proposed, he chose Sunriver as the setting. Just outside the lodge at sunset, Tyler got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. It was no surprise that Lindsey and Tyler chose this beautiful location for their wedding!
Lindsey and Tyler met through mutual friends in Washington DC where they both lived as they served our country. Lindsey worked for Senator Wyden. Tyler was an army ranger who served in Afghanistan. They have been together for over 5 years and have a sweet little puppy named Ranger who they wished could be part of the wedding day. They knew they couldnʼt bring him to the wedding so we did have him in the engagement session and he is just the sweetest thing. Here is their amazing engagement session in Arizona: https://kelliannejordan.com/2019/01/18/papago-park-engagement-session-arizona/
Lindsey had a number of different items with her to remember those who couldnʼt be with her. The ruby red necklace she wore around her neck once belonged to her grandmother. Her grandfather had given her grandmother a bracelet of jewels. When grandma passed away, grandpa broke the bracelet apart and turned each jewel into a necklace for the granddaughters. Lindsey wore this necklace around her neck and close to her heart for her wedding.
Lindseyʼs other grandmother had a special handkerchief made for Lindsey to catch her tears of joy. Lindsey also wore her grandmotherʼs garter around her leg as her something blue, borrowed and old.
Every detail of this wedding was elegant and classic with a touch of nature! I know Lindsey loves nature, but I donʼt think she expected as much nature as she got at her wedding. They say itʼs good luck if it rains on your wedding day. It started to rain just as we were photographing family photos. Thank goodness we could find refuge at the lodge. It only sprinkled a little during the ceremony, but everyone got an incredible lightening show just behind the bride and groom. I love lightening so it was a blast to see the storm in the distance with bolts coming down around us. It sure seemed like God was excited to see Lindsey and Tyler get married!
Jewish wedding celebrations are so much fun! There are so many amazing traditions that fill the wedding day with joy and love. Tyler was so excited to see his bride before the wedding. Through the day everyone could see how happy they both were, not just to finally be married, but to be surrounded with the most important people to them. Everyone had a blast celebrating!
Lindsey and Tyler, you two are so perfect together! We truly enjoyed getting to know you two and Ranger and canʼt wait to see what adventures you will go on next. Have an amazing time in Italy on your honeymoon! We wish you guys a lifetime of love and joy!! – Kellianne
After meeting and becoming friends high school, Camden and Aaron lost touch when she left to fight for our country. A few years late they reunited and have been together ever since. Camden explained, “We always knew we were soul mates. We have just loved each other for a long time.”
They both wanted a simple, beautiful and fun wedding at a stunning location and they found that at The Great Hall in Sunriver, Oregon. They did and amazing job putting together a simple and elegant wedding with the help of a few talented vendors.
Camden chose this beautiful wedding gown from The White Dress. It was the first dress she tried on and she fell in love immediately! She also loved her florist, Sweet Posey. They grow all their own flowers.
Love these patriotic socks to show their love for our county! Go USA!

This family loved spending a piece of the summer together in Sunriver, Oregon. This session was all about summer fun for everyone. I love the fun blue tones they chose for their outfits which are really bright and fun totally represent who they are. We had a great time together in Sunriver capturing memories for their family to cherish for years!
