{Emily + Danny: Married!} | Warrenton, OR wedding photographer

Emily happens to be my oldest friend in the world. Her parents and my parents have been friends for years, and she and I grew up together. To this day, we still share a special friendship and not only that, but she is my hair stylist extraordinaire! ┬áIt was my honor to shoot her wedding in September, to Danny, who is her perfect match. Their day was my so much fun, and I was so lucky and so happy to be a part of it. Danny’s parents live in Warrenton, OR, on the coast. The wedding and reception was held at their home, but Emily was adamant that she didn’t want it to feel like a “beach” wedding. It didn’t, and we we lucked out with sunshine and mild temperatures. Enjoy their day!

Emily’s gorgeous dress

This was a sweet moment as Danny’s Dad came in and presented Emily with a beautiful diamond necklace to wear on her special day

Emily and Danny elected to do pictures before the ceremony

The first look!

Emily’s Mom with her adorable Grandkids, who played flower girl and ring bearers for the day

Emily’s beautiful sisters, Wren & Rachael looked gorgeous as the matrons of honor

Love this one of the boys

Danny and his groomsmen all had custom Nike AirForce Ones. Pretty cool idea!

Quite possibly my favorite of the day!

Well, maybe I lied, this one is probably my favorite

Emily, expectantly waiting for the ceremony to begin, watching the guests come in. She looks so beautiful!

The ring bearers and Mitch, Emily and Danny’s adorable pup!

Exchanging rings and vows

Emily did almost all the decorating herself. Love these flower balls for the reception

Emily’s best friend Bethel did all the cupcakes for the wedding. They were adorable!

I can’t believe its already been 2 months since the wedding. I’m getting a little teary eyed going through the pictures of their day again. It is always a joy to see two people in love on their wedding day, and the happiness is contagious! For me, the greatest thing about being a photographer is capturing the happy memories that will be remembered forever…and if it happens to be a friend, it is even more rewarding.

Danny and Emily, thank you again for the honor of photographing your wedding day. I love you both, and wish you a lifetime of love and joy!

{Nik + Rachelle: wedding!} Sandy, OR wedding photographer

Nik and Rachelle are friends of mine, and their gorgeous July wedding was one that I got to attend as a guest, rather than a “working” guest. However, I can’t resist taking lots of pictures at weddings, even when I’m not working, and since Rachelle was such a stunning bride, I have to share some pictures!

Their wedding and reception were at Nik’s parent’s house, on the Sandy River. It was a perfect night-not too warm or too cold, great food, drinks and friends and we even got to end the night with a wedding beach bonfire! I loved the whole thing. So, for some pictures!

I loved Rachelle’s dress, it was so amazing on her.The sun hit her just right as her step dad walked her to the aisle

Her Dad walked her down the aisle

Nik’s face is so sweet as he waits for her

Mr. & Mrs!

For the cocktail hour we had drinks on the private beach and the bride and groom walked down for some pictures

Here’s Rick and some of our friends on the beach

And one last one of the table setting. I loved the colors.

Congratulations again Nik & Rachelle. It was such a gorgeous wedding and we had so much fun! So happy for you both :)
