This blog post has been a long time coming. I think this session actually took place around this time last year?! Crazy how fast time flies. My friend Lexia Frank is such a talented film photographer and is putting together a book for other photographers, or just anyone who wants to learn more about film photography. She needed a few subjects to photograph for a few of her lessons, which is where I came in. :) I love all of the different levels of lighting she used in these photos. So interesting and unique! Thanks for including me Lexia, I love your work!
Mt. Hood Organic Farms continues to amaze me. It's one of my favorite wedding venues here in Oregon! Hannah and Jeremy's wedding took place at Mt. Hood Organic Farms last August and I was truly so lucky to place a small role in making their day beautiful and special.
Summer in Oregon offers so many beautiful blooms, we had such a bounty of flowers to choose from for their soft, pastel palette. You will see garden roses, scabiosa, dahlias, pee gee hydrangea, foxglove, and many more. I really enjoyed working with this muted, summer palette.
Make sure to watch their feature film at the end of this post, We Are Moving Pictures captured their day so well!

When Grace, of Lee-Lim, asked me to be a part of her unique look book shoot she had been dreaming of, I couldn't say no! Have you seen Grace's gowns? They are beyond incredible and beautifully crafted. If you are in bride in need of a gown, contact her immediately!
The shoot took place on the shores of Lake Michigan on an extremely hot summer day. The day included a lot of running in the sand (what a work out!) and quick changes for our female model. I'm not exactly sure how many gowns we used that day, but you will see in the photos below that she made a lot of changes. The gowns range from short, cocktail length, to long and lacy.
For the flowers, I wanted to play off the location - soft sandy colors with a hint of blue-ish / purple for the ombre sky. I included flowers like anemones, garden roses, blackberry branches, artichokes and more. I really liked how the bouquet and centerpiece turned out!
We were also lucky enough to have this shoot featured on Grey Likes Weddings a couple months back. If you missed it, definitely take a look!
**Fun fact (believe it or not!) -- Grace's husband stood behind that awesome wallpaper backdrop the entire time. What a trooper!
