Planning your wedding?

I’m starting to get inquiries for 2015 weddings and thought I’d put up a few links to some helpful sites. If you haven’t heard of Etsy, it’s a great place to shop for everything wedding related (or to simply get really cool ideas). The same goes for Pinterest. I have a few Pinterest pages; one for wedding photography and one for wedding cakes. 2015 is just around the corner so it’s never too early! This image is from a wedding I shot at Silvan Ridge, in Lane County’s wine country along Territorial Highway.

Under the Lights, at Silvan Ridge

Lane County has so many great vineyards, it’s hard to see them all in one day. I recommend staying at The Blue Rooster B&B and making a weekend out of it. One of my favorite places to photograph weddings is at Silvan Ridge (formerly called Hinman Vineyards), directly across the road from Sweet Cheeks. This couple, Krista and Brian, flew in from Chicago and had a few days to make the place their own. Brian installed these lights over the dance floor and I thought that was a great idea. This was taken late at night, after almost everyone else had gone home, and it was just the bride and groom alone for the first time all day.
