Thoughts on Children's Portraits and the Lovely Miss Cora

Lets say goodbye to the good old days of making your kids miserable for portraits! We'd rather capture them naturally as they play in the comfort of their own home or explore a new setting. Bryan took little Cora's pictures in her bedroom and backyard. We think she is such a cutie with a whole lot of personality. These were taken several months ago but we never got to share them with you. Enjoy!

Here's a girl who knows what she wants!

Hopefully you'll be seeing a lot more of this little gal on the blog. Thanks to her mom Crystal for trusting Bryan with the important job of documenting this stage in her baby's life. And thanks to Staci (the beautiful pregnant woman standing by the refrigerator) for introducing us to her.

On another note....
We will be heading to Eugene next weekend to photograph sweet little Taylor Young(2 months old) and her cousins Bailey and Jonah.

and then....heading to Seattle for Jake and Michelle's wedding. You can find their engagement photos on the website under client viewing. They looked pretty amazing on the beach in Lincoln City. We're really excited for their wedding, because as you can see, they're very fun and full of life.

That's all for now. I've got some news about a contest coming up at the end of the summer. It will involve everyone who has been photographed this year for weddings/engagements/child or family portraits. I'll need some suggestions while I'm putting it together. We'll talk soon :).

Chase and Bridgette's Pictures are up

...or at least most of them anyways. If you are and Chase and Bridgette fan and want to check them out, go to the website: and choose client viewing. Then choose their album. There will be 100 more coming shortly, including the getting ready shots taken by yours truly (please keep in mind that I am the very beginningist of begginers).
Sweet Dreams,

Things to Come...

So sorry for the lack of blog activity. We are moving right now and don't have internet at the moment...but stay tuned next week for our very first ever TRASH THE DRESS session at Silver Falls. We just got back from that and it was a blast.

Also coming up Paige and Tyler's wedding in Tacoma and Jake and Michelle's in Seattle the following week. Maybe we should move to Washington :).

Moments + FuFu

Bryan was showing me part of his final edit for Chase and Bridgette and I couldn't resist posting a couple of these wonderful moments....even though it's a little early for the finals, and a little late for the preview. Why hold back, ya know? Also, I wanted you to see their amazing Jones Soda bottles with their picture on it. They also had Cream Soda, but FuFu Berry is my fave. Now, is that a great idea for a wedding reception or what?

Thanks to all of you for continuing to stop by the blog to support us and your loved ones that are in the pictures. Let me know what you would like to see more of around here. We do take requests. But for now, sleep tight.

Last Luke and Andrea Preview (Part 3)

So, I have to say that the colors Drea picked are much more bright and vibrant than this blog gives them credit for. For some reason these particular colors are REALLY getting drained out by blogger when we post them, so you'll just have to check out the real pictures on the website in August. We'll keep you updated on when that will be (or you can ask Luke and Drea).

Let's start this blog out with a story, or a bit of a script if you will to go along with these first two pictures.
Bryan and Leah: Ok, Rick and Peggy(grooms parents) can you please link arms with your son?
(see below).....

Rick: Men don't link arms
Bryan and Leah: Oh really, well then...what do men do?
Rick: This is what men do (puffs up his chest and grabs Luke)
Luke (laughing): What is wrong with you?

Here are both sides of their absolutely amazing family!!! Seriously, everyone made us feel so welcome. We feel like we gained a whole new set of friends. You can tell that they are just so proud of their kids.

Here we have the lovely Miss Makenna who did her job as flower girl with flair, even though she wasn't feeling well.

This handsome guy is the ring bearer Jack. He was such a trooper even though it was a million degrees outside.

Here is Luke's posse of super quality groomsmen. I have to tell you that I have never had the door opened for me so many times at a wedding. Very impressive.

And here are a couple of shots of Drea's gorgeous bridesmaids who are never too dressed up to kick up their bright pink heels and have a little fun.

And last but not least, some beautiful details...Drea's bouquet and the cake. Again, please note to Drea's credit that the colors were gorgeous and bright (not dusty rose like it appears).

Well, that's all I have time for. We're actually heading out to pick up the honeymooners from the airport.
Luke and Drea, you guys know that we love you and wish you all of the happiness in the world. We are here for you if you need anything. Thanks to all of their family and friends who made it such a warm and encouraging experience for us.

Luke and Drea Fletcher Part 2

Here are some more pictures of Luke and Drea. As usual, I'm having a harder time narrowing it down than I'm going to do a Part 3 either tonight or tomorrow with the handsome groomsmen, adorable ring bearer and flower girl, and the promised family pictures.

We first met Luke and Drea at a meeting when they were considering booking Bryan for their wedding. I think it was sometime last summer. We really hit it off when we took their engagement photos, and ended up becoming great friends! Luke makes some killer chicken curry, and we've spent some nights eating, studying, or just chatting. This wedding was a double blessing for us to be a part of because we felt so connected to them as friends.
Here they are praying during their ceremony

a sweet mommy moment


Ok, so I'll post some more later and then you'll just have to wait until the finished product!
With Love,

Luke and Drea Fletcher Part 1!

I have so much to say about Luke and Drea's wonderful wedding. For now here are a couple of pictures to get you started. I will post several more this evening that will include the wedding party (a group of seriously fun people), and their supportive families. There was so much love going around at this wedding and we hope that looking at the pictures gives you even a small taste of what a joy it was to actually be a part of this day. See you later tonight for part 2!

Luke and Drea Coming Soon!

If you're looking for the preview of Luke and Drea's Pictures, they will be up today (July 5th). Bryan is off to a wedding early in the morning, but I should have them up by noon or so.
And...I think you're gonna like em!!!!!
