Lainee & Jared
A Snowy Sunriver Engagement

Let it SNOW!!! Lainee and Jared are a fun-loving couple who I met up with last winter at their gorgeous family home in Sunriver, Oregon. My family and I love Sunriver Resort and I always enjoy heading there for engagement photo sessions, weddings, and elopements. There is no light like the light in Sunriver.

Lainee and Jared started the session on a snow-covered golf course near a stunning little lake, which was a perfect location for opening a nice “chilled” bottle of wine on a cozy Pendleton blanket. We then headed to meet up with their pups and for a fun impromptu snowball fight! Love a couple that’s not afraid to get a little silly together. Lainee and Jared and I discovered a winter wonderland near the clubhouse in their neighborhood which had the quintessential snowy bridge over the Deschutes River, which made for a great backdrop. We ended the fun session while popping a bottle of champagne in the snow. So excited for their New Year’s Eve wedding coming up this weekend, which is sure to ring in the new year with a bang! Congrats Lainee and Jared!

Kellen and Ty
A Sunriver Oregon Winter Wedding

Kellen and Ty! Gah!!! Words can’t describe the beauty!!! Sunriver is a truly magical place that has a dear spot in my heart. The light shines brighter in Sunriver and it definitely shines brighter with Kellen and Ty tying the knot! (ha- see what I did there!)  Their wedding day was one of the best this winter with warm and clear blue skies and sparkling light over a fine dust of fresh snow. With the organic florals from Woodland Floral, Kellen’s dress from BHLDN and Ty’s custom suit from Collier, this couple has oh-so much grace and style. The sweet Mallory with Mint Events coordinated the day while Pressure Point played great music all night long that made for epic dance photos!  I loved the personal touches they included like Kellen’s grandmother’s fur and Ty’s initialed tie clips. A special thanks to Kate Kelly for second shooting with me and Kellen and Ty- thank you! Your love, energy and soul were truly inspiring to document!

Whitney and John
A Sunriver Oregon Engagement

One of the first things you’ll notice about Whitney and John is how absolutely kind hearted they are. While walking down the Sunriver bridge we all noticed a woman a little downriver who had rescued her dog in the water and was soaked in all her clothes. John ran over to her and was willing to donate the actual shirt off his back for her so she wouldn’t be cold! Luckily she lived close, so all was good- But when I say “kindhearted” I’m like… For real kind-hearted!!! Whitney, John and I all met up in Sunriver at the brewery, only to soon discover they actually met at at Starbucks. She was behind the counter slinging lattes and he was ordering a coffee and hopefully a date. Many years and many adventures later, they are now officially tying the knot in August and I’m so excited for this wedding! We took a stroll along the waterfront with their pup and hung out at their vacation home on the deck. Such a relaxing and beautiful couple and a perfect afternoon in Sunriver.
