Whenever a couple goes the extra mile and rents out a classic car as their getaway vehicle, I’m always happy; this couple, however, actually owned this car, a very nicely restored 1957 Chevrolet. Whisper’n’Oaks wedding.

I used a slight gaussian blur on this image, then ‘painted’ the bride’s eyes back in at 100% of the original, sharper image, and the rest of her at around 80%. This particular bride likes soft-focus images so I did work like this on a few from her wedding at Whisper’n’Oaks last week. I used Adobe Lightroom for processing the RAW file and Adobe Photoshop for the gaussian blur.

During the bridal portrait session last week, at Whisper’n’Oaks, this bride spotted a guest wearing a cowboy hat. She asked if she could put it on and I really like how it completed the image with the corral fence in the background. I lit this using three of Canon’s new 600EX-RT speedlights; they’re amazing!

Whenever I shoot a wedding I always hope the bride has a long veil. There are just so many ways to incorporate it into the portraits!
This Whisper’n’Oaks wedding was one such occasion. Alecia and Sean were quite happy to cuddle up under the privacy of taffeta and begin their honeymoon a little early.

Alicia and Sean were married at Whisper’n’Oaks and we took full advantage of the beautiful sunset that evening. This sepia tint was created in Lightroom; I modified that program’s sepia preset a little bit to give it more contrast.

This bride got quite a shock as she approached her cake table: a little tree frog had been perching on the window and, as the bride walked by, it jumped onto her shoulder! She barely had time to glance at it before it leapt away. Catching this shot was a matter of being in the right place at the right time 🙂 This was another Whisper’n’Oaks wedding.

When the wheat fields are at their highest in Western Oregon, sometime in early August, they make a fantastic setting; especially at sunset. I really like the juxtaposition of the rustic with the formal.

When Megan and Kenji walked past this old barn I saw their shadows on the wall and thought, what a fun portrait that would be! This was taken at Whisper’n’Oaks.

I never know how the bride’s parents are going to react while the vows are being said. These parents were torn between happiness for their little girl and the knowledge that she had, indeed, grown up. This image was taken at Whisper’n’Oaks near Eugene, OR.
