Adam & Erica

Adam and Erica are one of the most laid back (yes, even you, Erica), friendly, open, and fun couples I have ever met.  Photographing their wedding was truly a joy and was the furthest thing from work I have experienced in a long time.  They truly are a joy to be around, and they radiate love

Adam and Erica got married at a thoroughbred ranch in Wallowa County.  Their country-themed wedding was amazing, beautiful, and radiated love. Continue reading

Dustin & Richole

Just a couple quick ones for now.  I have known Dustin since before he was in Junior High, and I just met Richole a few short days before their wedding.  They are amazing, and I consider it a huge privilege to be the one that got to capture their beautiful day.

Portraits Are More Than Paper

Credit for this post goes to Jeanine at Fototails Photography.  Jeanine wrote this post yesterday, publishing a letter she received from a client.  Her client expressed what so many of us don’t realize until it is too late, and very quickly, this post is “going viral” on Facebook.  I am reposting it here for my clients, friends, and family with the hope that you all may realize just how important portraits, snapshots, and images truly are to our loved ones.

A letter on my door step. Portraits are more than paper.

There will be no portrait photos in this post.  This letter wasn’t mailed – it was at my doorstep when I got home a couple months ago.  I read it, I cried, and read it again – probably a hundred times by now.  It wasn’t easy to read – and honestly, as much as it validates what I do for a living – I wasn’t sure I was going to share it either – Until today, when a past client said that my print prices were too expensive.  If you choose to read through the letter, you will know why I’ve finally chosen to share it.

The Whitney Boys

When I have photo sessions, they are usually high school seniors or families, and it seems like I am usually photographing girls, and very rarely do I get to work with little boys.  One of my oldest friends was in town with his son for the Thanksgiving holiday, and we spent a morning having a photo session.  Dean and Flint are the first father-son session I’ve ever had, and there is something so unique and wonderful about that connection and relationship.  It was an honor for me to capture theirs.
