Sweet Couple at Sweet Cheeks

Krista & Bryan were married at Sweet Cheeks Winery in southern Lane County. Pinot country, in other words. Originally from Oregon, Krista relocated to Chicago, where she met Bryan, but knew she wanted to get married back in her beautiful home state. Sweet Cheeks has some wonderful wines and is a great place for weddings. Nestled in the foothills of Territorial Highway, it’s the perfect spot for lunch or dinner, too.

Oregon Sunshine

Fall is here and looks like mother nature has brought the rain back for awhile. If you shoot a lot of outdoor weddings in Oregon, as I do, you have to be prepared to get wet every now and then! This image is from a wedding I did last October, at the Eagle Rock Lodge, out on the McKenzie River. Curt and Amie were not only unfazed by the weather, they still went through with their plan to get into a boat immediately after their ceremony!

Reflecting on the Future

Heather and Jon were married at the Big K Ranch (near Elkton, OR). As I was talking to Heather out on the back deck of her Bridal Cabin, I looked back and saw her mother gazing at her, realizing her daughter was starting on the next chapter of her life.

Shannon & Bryce at King Estate

While you can see more of my King Estate weddings near the end of this page, I thought I’d post some photos from a wedding I shot there just recently. Shannon & Bryce were open to using the entire venue and I was glad they did!

Portland wedding in the rain

Jenni & Johnny were married in Portland in the summer of 2011. Now, unbeknownst to most out-of-towners, Portland doesn’t usually get any rain between mid June and mid-September (don’t tell anyone that!!). However, this day was the exception that proved the rule. Jenni and Johnny were quite unperturbed by the weather, being locals, and I love shooting in the rain…so much atmosphere. You can view a slideshow here or look below for some images from that wedding:

Whisper’n’Oaks Weddings

Whisper’n’Oaks, located on Hulbert Lake Road in Junction City, Oregon, is a fantastic place to get married. I’ve shot more weddings at Whisper’n’Oaks than at any other single venue in Oregon. Donna, the owner, does a great job. The ceremony area, accessible by bridge, is perfect in any kind of weather. Below is a gallery of images from over the years. You can also see a full day’s wedding if you click this link.

Atavista weddings

Atavista Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful venue located just north of Eugene in Brownsville, Oregon. I’ve photographed a few weddings there over the years and have always loved the setup. The images below are from Wes and Katie’s wedding in 2011.
