Don’t forget the bouquet!

This Coburg Country Inn wedding took place on a Friday and the bride’s mother spent the morning on the phone with the florist. Apparently, the florist (whose name shall go unmentioned!) assumed the wedding was on a Saturday; she didn’t have the flowers ready at all. Jessamyn, the bride, was unperturbed and asked her Maid of Honor to run down to the nearest store and buy as many floral arrangements as she could. This bridal bouquet did the trick quite nicely!

Late in the Evening

Whisper’n’Oaks is one of my favorite wedding venues in Lane County. The property is going through some remodeling this year, as I understand, but I cannot imagine what Donna (the owner) can possibly do to improve it!

This image was made just after the sun had set. Haylie & Jonathan had wanted to do some wedding photos in the wheat fields surrounding the property but all the wheat had been harvested the week before. Luckily, as the name Whisper’n’Oaks implies, there were plenty of other great locations to use. Again, the use of an off-camera flash was crucial here in lighting my subjects. The winds were so strong my softboxes wouldn’t stay up, so I had to use a bare speedlight, but Canon makes a great product and the 600EX-RT was up to the task.
