Emily and Isaac ~ Sneak Preview

Emily and Isaac got married at Willamette Valley Vineyard on Friday. We shot this wedding for Jourdan Moore who is another local photographer in the area.
Isaac and Emily are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside and it was a joy to be a part of their special day.

We haven't got a chance to do much editing to these pictures but we're really excited about the gorgeous golden light. Enjoy!
Isaac and Emily we wish you all the best. To their friends and family: thank you for making it such a wonderful experience for us.

Problems in Website Land

A couple people have noticed that Bryan's website isn't working properly right now. We think there's troubles with his domain...and we're working on getting it fixed. For now, you should be able to reach the same website at:

Thanks for your patience, we'll get it resolved soon.
And...I think I'll go back to blogging on this blog for now since I had troubles figuring stuff out on the new one.
Hope you have a lovely Saturday,

P.S. Yesterday we shot Isaac and Emily's absolutely gorgeous wedding at Willamette Valley Vineyards. We were hired by Jourdan Moore (another local photographer) to shoot this wedding since she was already booked for the day. I will be posting a couple of pictures of that tomorrow...and I think they are our best so far this summer!!!!

Don't forget, if you're in the Newberg area to stop by Honest Chocolates for our show (during Newberg's First Friday art walk).

Sweet Baby Taylor (and her fan club) - Eugene, OR

We traveled to Eugene a few weeks back to photograph little Taylor with her mom, dad, and cousins. Is she precious or what?

Here she is with Daddy, showing off with a little drool.

And with Mommy, looking beautiful.

Here are her little toes...

...and a shot to commemorate her first nature walk :)

These are her cousins:

...and Jonah (you've seen him before)

And everybody's bare feet in the green, green grass. Bailey was so great with the babies.

We had so much fun getting to see Taylor cry, smile, drool, nap...and just be amazingly special. What a blast to get to play with three children in the park!

I know it's been a while...

We've really got a lot of catching up to do on this blog, so I promise tomorrow to show you three really adorable kids!!!

Art Show in Newberg

Our latest news is that we're going to be doing a show for Newberg's first Friday art walk on September 5th. We were told there would be free chocolate samples so of course we agreed to do it immediately :).

We're going to be using portraits of all of you lovely folks. I'll post a list of who we will be using (after asking your permission of course) so you can come on down and check yourself out.

Also, Honest Chocolates are delicious and a great local business to support. See you there!

Jake and Michelle - In Sickness and in Health (Sneak Peak)

Jake and Michelle were married last Saturday in Arlington, Washington. Their wedding was especially beautiful because of all the obstacles they had to overcome (not the least of which was Jake being extremely sick). They showed amazing poise and maturity by enjoying their day anyway and keeping their focus on what really mattered.

Jake was such a trooper, putting a smile on his face and posing for all of the family pictures even though on any other day he would have been bed ridden.

And Michelle shattered the stereotype of spoiled bride by being completely supportive of Jake and smiling no matter what happened. How refreshing!

We were joined on Saturday by Chris from Digital Circle Creative Group who was their videographer. He was wonderful to work with, and if anybody out there is looking for a videographer, you should check out his website. He is based out of Seattle but said that he really likes the Portland area as well.

There are so many great moments from this day, but here are just a few for starters.

This shows how happy Michelle was!

..and how great she looked in her dress...

And how beautiful she was! I would say radiant, don't you think?

The look on Jake's face when his bride was walking down the aisle!!!

They left the ceremony in style!

Well, that's all for now, but there are many more pictures of Jake and Michelle to come. Trust me, you'll want to stay tuned to see their "flower pooch". Yep ladies and gentleman, she is a flower girl and she is a dog.

On another note, we have a lot of catching up to do on here. Before the summer is over, I would like to do a final blog posting for Chase and Bridgette; Luke and Drea; Paige and Tyler; and of course Jake and Michelle.

Also...we've got some fun baby and kid pictures coming for Jonah, Taylor, Indie, and Bailey. Seriously, these little ones will make you wanna have a baby because they're so charming. Ok, maybe not. But...they are really precious kiddos.

Also, the contest that I was talking about is going to be the first annual Bryan Rupp Photography People's Choice Awards. Yes, I know that we are not anywhere close to the end of the year, but I kind of consider our photographic year to be from summer to summer...or, wedding season to wedding season.

So, we'll throw up several nominations for each category and let you vote on what you like the best. The winners will receive something...I don't know what yet, but it will be bigger than a pat on the back and smaller than a trip to Hawaii. You know, somewhere in the middle...or more towards the smaller end :).

Anyways, what do you think the categories should be and what should the winners get?
I need to get some brainstorming going.

Here are my ideas:
Best ring/bling shot
Best bouquet
Most debonair groomsmen/beautiful bridesmaids
Most creative wedding favors
Yummiest looking food
Funnest family shot
Something for ring bearers and flower girls
etc, etc.
Oh, and most adventurous engagement shot (i think the engagement sessions should get some love too).

Also thanks to everybody who has been referring their friends to us. We love to meet new people! If you have referred someone and I haven't sent you a little something in the mail yet, I could probably use a gentle reminder.

With Love,

Paige and Tyler (Sneak Preview)

There is so much to be said about Paige and Ty's wedding in Spanaway, Washington, but I will keep this post short and sweet since it really is just a preview of things to come. Suffice to say that it was a touching ceremony and the bride and groom were surrounded by warm and loving people all day long. There was a very good mixture of tears and belly laughs which makes for a beautiful event overall.

For those of you who have been waiting very patiently (cough, Hannah) ;) here is something to tide you over for a while. Once again we've got some color zappage going on with blogger (I just created a word, derived from "to zap")so if anyone knows a brilliant solution to that, please let me know.

P.S. We teamed up with Brian Zaro for this wedding so later on we'll be getting a hold of his shots too and combining all the pictures as one body of work. I'll also post a link to his website and tell a little bit more about him and how talented he is.

Paige and Ty, we hope you're having a fabulous time on your honeymoon. Your wedding was so special and we hope you are getting to look back on it with fond memories! See ya soon.
