Willamette Valley Oregon Wedding: Jess + Ian

There’s nothing I love more than to travel to a beautiful place and photograph a warm, hilarious, adventurous couple. Jess and Ian’s wedding was a backyard celebration at their country house on a sprawling, Oregon property in the middle of the Willamette Valley’s wine country. It was lovingly brought to life by the efforts of their wonderful friends and family, who helped make all the floral arrangements, decoration, and set up. The following day we had a blast hiking around Silver Falls State Park for a dramatic portrait session in the stunning Oregon landscape. One of these images was just featured in Carmencita Film Lab’s Best of August!

From the dreamy countryside of Burgundy, France, where stunning estates and mustard fields decorate the expansive landscape, I photographed this inspiration wedding editorial at the Chateau de Varennes while attending the Sylvie Gil Workshop. I spent a glorious week here learning from the best in the industry, drinking wine, and meeting a great group of photographers in the process. Some of these photographs were recently featured in Destination I Do! See it here.

My little sister is getting married!! I photographed her with my wonderful future brother Marc in his hometown of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. They met in a New York City laundromat where he almost burned his clothes in the dryer while working up the courage to ask her out. My family and I not only love him, but we also love his family, so I have a feeling it’s going to be an extra special weekend. One of my favorite people in this world, Sir Francis Schwartz, will be marrying them while performing an original work of avant-garde, audience participation, musical theater, which he’s currently composing just for the occasion… I can’t wait for their wedding in Chianti, Italy next summer.

Bordeaux France Engagement: Daina + Olivier

Daina and Oliver are adventurous world travelers and oenophiles. Daina, originally from Arizona, and her fiance, from nearby Bergerac, France, wanted to have their fun and relaxed engagement session in the town they both love and now call home, Bordeaux. I absolutely loved Bordeaux and never thought I could fall harder for another French city more than Paris, but… I did! I think that had a lot to do with Daina and Olivier. They were such gracious hosts, and showed me places I might never have found on my own, including across the river where Olivier works, in the Darwin-eco-systeme, old military barracks turned eco-friendly coworking space. The music was great, the beer was cold (I know right, drinking beer in the wine capitol of the world, but don’t worry we drank plenty of wine together too), and I loved the light installation showing energy consumption of the two connected buildings. (Check it out here.) Bordeaux has the charm of a small city and the art, culture, and conveniences of a large one. It’s a mix of preserved, old world beauty with amazing modern designs and architecture. The next day we went to the Dune of Pilat, the tallest sand dune in Europe, it was awesome. Their engagement session was shot exclusively on medium format Fujifilm with a Contax 645, and thanks to Richard Photo Lab for the beautiful scans. I just had such a great time with them and can’t wait to photograph their wedding in a French chateau next July!
