Food photography is one of my favorite things to do, but unfortunately I don’t get to do it as regularly as I would like. I need to get some more fun photo shoots planned, I’m looking at you, every pastry shop ever. But the second best thing to all the pastry shops in the world is Cornbread Cafe, a really delicious, laid back and super fun vegan comfort food restaurant just a hop skip and a jump away from downtown. Myself, I try to limit my meat consumption, especially when I don’t know the source of the meat and how ethically the animals are raise so finding a vegan restaurant that I love and get to work with is the best of both worlds! I can’t wait for more shoots, more delicious meals and all the vegan brownies I can get my hands on!
Some of you may not know, but I run a networking group along side my friend and peer, Becky Hart of Event Crush. This group is for all professionals in the area working in the wedding industry. We have monthly casual meet ups for relaxed and fun networking as well as a big yearly party. This year our party was bigger and more epic than ever before! The party always has a theme, awesome food/beverage/dessert vendors, epic music and a photobooth. This year was extra special because we got to go with my theme of choice, 80s prom! I couldn’t be more proud and more excited to host more amazing events and meet new and incredible people!
Ashland, Oregon is one of my all time favorite places to visit and photograph. Not only is it a gorgeous little town, but it’s where I went to high school and spent so much time growing up. It’s certainly changed and grown an amazing amount which is wonderful to see. I’m always delighted when I get to come back and adventure around with awesome folks and cute couples!
I had so much fun with Carol and Will, a pair of high school sweet hearts who have reunited and will be getting married this summer! What I loved the most about these two is how amazingly comfortable and sweet they were with each other. You can really see the love and happiness in these photos!
I can’t wait for their wedding!!!
You guys, it has been SO LONG since I’ve blogged! I have so many wonderful shoots to share, there are babies, parties, engagements and adventures to share! I’m beyond excited to start with these photos of my friend and soon to be wedding client, Carolyne! She’s not only gorgeous but totally sweet and has found the love of her life who she will marry this summer!! I feel extremely honored and so excited to be her wedding photographer and friend!
While visiting Ashland, we were able to get together to talk about wedding planning and while I was there I took the chance to twist her arm and get her to model some new Mr. Kate temporary tattoo freckles that I have been dying to test!! Aren’t they adorable and so much fun?!
Naturally I had to include a photo of my sweet pup, Happy!!
I am delighted to share with you photos from a recent maternity session. Can you believe this gorgeous snow goddess was two days away from her due date with twins?! I know if I was pregnant with twins, I would never leave my house for the whole pregnancy, so I’m so impressed with her stomping around in the snow with me! We went up to Salt Creek Falls which was the nearest snow (at the time) and had so much fun playing around in the snow and getting some gorgeous shots! I’m also pleased to note that the twins, Cooper and Zoey have been born and are healthy and cute as can be!
