Ring detail, Sarver Winery wedding

Once a couple becomes married, it’s rare to see their rings together. It’s also rare to see any inscriptions that may be inside the groom’s ring. Also, they’re so shiny and new on the wedding day, it’s a great time to photograph them. I even had one bride use one of my images from her wedding to help with an insurance claim after her ring was stolen!

Stewart Family Farm wedding

Located in the picturesque community of Harrisburg, Oregon, Stewart Family Farm is a great wedding venue. This 5th-generation property has it all: massive shade trees, expansive lawn areas, water access and optional on-site catering. There’s even a separate ‘Groom’s Cabin’ which means the entire wedding party can get ready at the same time. If you’re looking for an outdoor wedding venue, add Stewart Family Farm to your list!

Indiana Jones?

The groom from this past Saturday’s wedding at The Inn at Diamond Woods really loved his hat so I told him to put it on. The hat, along with the .45 he had strapped to his leg, reminded me of Indiana Jones.

Katy & Brian wedding. August 8th, 2015

Newlyweds!

Kaley and Derek braved this past Saturday’s rain showers and I’m glad they did. This shot was taken just before the ceremony, right after the First Look.

More from Youngberg Hill

Going through some of my weddings at Youngberg Hill, a beautiful vineyard in McMinnville, I realized I should post some more photos. These are from Melissa and Daniel’s wedding. The weather was perfect: lots of textured clouds in the sky at first, followed by warm, golden sunlight towards evening.

Youngberg Hill wedding

Youngberg Hill, near the town of McMinnville, is one of Oregon’s premiere wedding venues. With stunning views and excellent facilities — not to mention their superb wine! — Youngberg Hill is a fantastic place to get married. This image is of the bride going over her vows. I applied a slight Gaussian blur in Photoshop, also allowing for the writing to remain sharp and crisp.

We Did It!

After all the planning and work that goes into making a successful wedding, the bride and groom aren’t truly married until the license has been signed and witnessed. I always make sure to get a few photos of this momentous event, since most of the time it takes place away from all the family and guests. At this Atavista Farms wedding, between Katie and Wes, they were certainly aware of the moment 🙂
