Sarina's portrait shoot

We had way too much fun photographing Sarina last week. We first met up with her at the stables where she rides horses out in Hillsburo. It was so amazing to photograph these beautiful animals with this stunning girl. It was also cool to see how a young girl had complete control over such enormous creatures. I have to admit I was a little scared at first to be so close to the horses, but after a couple minutes I knew they were very tame. It makes me want to do more shoots with horses, they are so amazing to work with!

Sarina is definitely a natural model. She looks amazing and knows exactly how to pose. She is also a doll to be around, so full of personality. It makes our job feel too easy. We met up with her one more time in the Pearl District for an urban shoot. We will be photographing her Bat Mitzvah this winter so this will not be the last you see of this gorgeous girl!

Jen + Nels wedding

Jen and Nels were married just outside of Corvallis at the Willamette Legacy Vineyard. It was such a perfect day from start to finish (other than the heat!). The venue was set atop a hill overlooking the beautiful valley farmlands. There were hay fields surrounding the property and trees covering the top of the hill where the wedding took place. Jen put together most of the wedding all by herself, from making the bridemaids dresses and jewelry to the programs to the table settings. She did an amazing job creating a low-key but classy Oregon vineyard wedding. Their wedding was by far one of my most favorite to photograph to date! Congrats you two!

Alisa + Jared's wedding

Alisa and Jared were married up at the Bridal Veil Lakes this summer. It is by far our favorite venues to photograph at! Not only was the scenery beautiful, but these two made the day perfect! They are so in love and they surround themselves with great friends and family. I went to school with Alisa at OSU (go Beavs!) and she is a very talented graphic designer. Along with her creative skills, she has tons of artist friends that helped put the whole day together. Everything from the wine to the flowers to the cakes and hanging candles, the day was put together by friends and family. Wow! right? The day was stunning! Congrats you two!
