Jen + Ben's wedding ~ 06.26.10

Jen and Ben were married last month out at the gorgeous Zenith Vineyard outside of Salem Oregon. These two are sweet and light hearted. Looking over these photos made me smile time and again. Some of the most touching moments of the day were when Jen's father saw her for the first time as a bride, and another sweet moment was when tears began flowing as they read their vows to one another. Jen was by far one of the most giddiest and most excited brides I've seen! She was so full of smiles and laughter before the ceremony. Once the ceremony was all said and done, her nerves subsided and it was clear she was so happy to be with her groom. Jen and Ben take good care of one another and make eachother laugh so much. One last moment that I loved to photograph was during the bride and groom photo session. The couple wanted to practice their first dance. It made for some great photos as the sun flairs sparked over the roof of the barn we were using for a backdrop.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Thanks to some of our favorite vendors that made this wedding fantastic!

Deann + Bill's engagement

Deann and Bill are great friends of ours. I graduated the same year as Deann at OSU in the graphic design program. In fact, I remember meeting Bill for the first time before they were even officially dating! It's weird to see how fast time flies.

When they got engaged a couple months ago Deann called to tell me by saying "we have a wedding for you to shoot!" I immediately said "whos?" thinking she would say a friend or coworker was going to hire us. She then responded excitedly "OURS!!" I was and still am so happy for the both of them. They have been dating for years and we all knew they were headed for marriage, it was just a matter of when. Bill caught her completely by surprise and proposed on a snow-shoeing adventure. As you can see, Deann is full of laughter and smiles. She has been even more so since they got engaged. We are so honored to be apart of their day in a couple months. It is bound to be a fun night!
