Jess & Ben’s wedding sneak peek

Ragan & Neil’s wedding

This is the story of an incredible wedding day in the Columbia Gorge with Ragan and Neil. They celebrated at Lakecliff Bed and Breakfast overlooking some of the most beautiful landscape in Oregon. It all went so smooth from start to finish. The day started with close friends, hair and make up, and an easy and quiet first look between Ragan and Neil overlooking the Columbia River. We then took wedding party photos and family photos in the beautiful sparkling light around the property. The ceremony started in the afternoon where all their close friends and family laughed, cried and cheered on the couple as they said “I do.” The reception was filled with lawn games, beer and wine, an incredible dinner by 3 Rivers (Hood River), heartfelt toasts, dancing and so much laughing. I loved hearing and seeing how loved these two are by their friends and families. I heard story after story about how kind, generous, and thoughtful both of these two are separately, and clearly together they make a stellar pair. The day was fun. It just flew by and I can’t be more happy for these two and grateful for my incredible clients! I’m a lucky photographer.

sneak peek: Farm Family

Hood River Organic

I was in Hood River this past weekend for a wedding and met Dan. We got to talking and I found out he has plans to turn his incredible organic farm – Hood River Organic - and additional properties nearby into event and wedding venues. I love the area around Hood River. It’s some of the prettiest countryside I’ve ever driven through with views of Mt Hood. I asked Dan if I could stop by and see the farm and learn more about his ideas. I was blown away by the property and excited to have a tour around. Dan spoke to us about his farming processes and his business adventures he has been on over the last decade. He is quite connected  to the food world in Oregon and Washington and passionate about what he is doing in the world. It is always great to feel and see someone’s passion in every step of their process. He even gave us samples of blueberries, raspberries, peas and strawberries – YUM! We also got to meet his sweet dog Junior. He helped lead the way as we walked around the property.

His property is available to rent for special events and weddings so get in early and connect with him soon! This is a space to keep your eye on in the coming years. I know it will be big when the word gets out. Contact Dan at: dan@hoodriverorganic.com

Ragan & Neil’s wedding sneak peek!

What an incredible way to kick off my summer full of weddings. Ragan and Neil were married at Lakecliff Bed and Breakfast on Saturday and everything was great from the people, to the venue, to the food and the weather. I wouldn’t have changed a thing. The light was to die for all day. And the view? Incredible. Happy for these two and was thrilled to be there to document it all.
