Katie and Brendan- Married!



I can't begin to describe this wedding. Maybe just a list of words would suffice... love, commitment, carefree attitude, organized, helpful AND fun bridal party, joy filled, family, creative, fun... and ahead of schedule (unheard of in the wedding world)!! The guests that I met at the wedding were so sweet and kind. I wish I had more time to chat with everyone, however, I was working!

Katie and Brendan became Mr. and Mrs. on September 20, 2008 at Postlewait's Farm in Canby Oregon. I have been looking forward to their wedding for sometime now. Their engagement session was so fun and creative and they were so wonderful to work with. Not to mention the moment I heard it was in a barn I just about died and went to creative heaven! I don't know why, but I have been dying to shoot in and around a barn for a while.

To Katie and Brendan-- I had a blast. Thank you for allowing be to be a part of your wedding day and to witness such a special moment in your story. I hope you two had a blast on your Mexican honeymoon!!

Enjoy everyone!







All 11 bridesmaids + mom were figuring out the bustle!












They opted for a 1st look... so adorable and highly recommended!!








Brendan didn't ACTUALLY have a boquet, I just thought it would be funny...




This is one of my favorite images of the day simply because I feel I am looking in on a secret. Obviously Brendan did something to make Katie laugh... not to mention how wonderfully smokin they look!








Katie threw typical out the window when it came to her shoes... she chose green ones!






The girls... all 11 of them!






I love this tractor shot! Girls, you rocked it.




The Guys... they rocked this jumping shot!








The whole party.

I'm back from Canada

My apologizes. I clearly DID need more sleep because I had been looking at the incorrect week when I posed the last post (it's fixed now)! I'm back and will be returning all emails asap :)

If you guys haven't been to Vancouver, B.C.- go. It's gorgeous, the people are so charming and the city is beautiful... not to mention the plethora of shopping opportunities! But really, it's such a lovely city... Josh and I decided it reminds us of a mix of Portland for the eclectic areas and multiple bridges; San Fran because of the downtown feel and the size; Seattle because of the hill-like nature to view the ocean with every turn. It's so great there! We were blessed with this quick trip to see family and explore the city.
