Jamie + Nick’s Pronghorn Resort Wedding

Dear Jamie and Nick, 

Your wedding was full of love and friendship, and we feel so lucky to be able to help you create these memories. Thanks for trusting us. 


Caitlin + Tim

Our first in person experience with Jamie and Nick was their engagement session which just so happened to be on the same day as our 1 year wedding anniversary. These two beautiful people showed up with a bottle of champagne and 4 glasses. We were instantly in love with them.

I love every single little choice Jamie and Nick made to make their day so special. It’s not the just pretty details we love, it’s the story behind them… Jamie and Nick put thought and love into every part of their day, and it shows in the photos.

Florals by Hart Floral made Pronghorn feel like a living work of art, and the love that was present on the day made us feel truly lucky to do what we do. If there’s any couple we’ve worked with that we hope to see again, it’s them. Cheers to this pair, who were truly meant to be.

Erica + Cliff’s Oregon Coast Wedding

Dear Erica and Cliff,  

We loved your wedding so much, and are so glad you did exactly what you wanted to celebrate. Your wedding made us feel really grateful to do what we do.
The Gallivans
Erica and Cliff are PNW locals with mid-western hearts of gold. I don’t think we’ve ever worked with a more down to earth couple.  They are just really in love and they were very intentional about how they celebrated that love.
We get intentional. We get being in love… suffice it to say, we were a great fit from the start.
The day was perfect, you guys. It was sunny — and pretty warm considering it was the Oregon Coast. The wind blew in exactly the right direction to make incredible photos, and their wasn’t a single drop of rain.
The bride wore Rue De Seine, one of my favorite designers ever, but she wasn’t afraid to get the dress dirty or wet. I was like… “okay.. is this for real?”… it was for real.
This tiny ceremony was the absolute perfect way to join these two individuals. I’m so glad we got to be there.

Megan + Garrett’s Hood River Wedding

Megan and Garret are those kind of clients that we love: immediately endearing, a little nerdy and, most of all, hopelessly in love. We immediately connected with these two when we shot their engagement session. Over drinks afterward, we learned so much about how this couple has supported one another through good times and bad.

Megan is a teacher, and Garret is a therapist, and although they are both dedicated to the important work they do, and don’t have oodles of time to spend together, they make each day count and fill their time together with fun and laughter.

So okay, we were fond of them… it’s true. We were super excited to shoot their wedding, but had no idea how perfect the day would be. It’s safe to say that they are officially on our list of favorite weddings of all time. The venue they chose is seriously the BOMB. Mt. View Orchards has incredible views and beautiful rows of apples for miles. Fresh peaches were placed at each seat, the food by Celilio Catering was INCREDIBLY delicious and beautifully plated and the music provided by John Ross was fun and unexpected.
These two had fun the whole day. At the ceremony there was singing and dancing to the tune “Home” by Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros along with a band of kazoo playing groomsmen with the help of John Ross. At the reception there were caricature artists, fresh peaches at each seat and, of course,  heartwarming speeches. It was a good day, guys.
The whole day came together in such a perfect way for the two of them. It was playful, fun and heartfelt. We can’t say enough great things about Megan and Garret or their wedding. Gah… it was seriously the best!
